You guys. You know how some people just write certain kinds of fic? I mean, their natural writing style just lends really well to a specific genre or something?

I've been a one-shot person my whole life; not only did I lack the stick-to-it-iveness that multi-chapter fics require, but I simply didn't have any *ideas* for them. My brain was geared toward one-shots. I wouldn't have even guessed at how to start something that would take more than 3,000 words.

BUT OMFG, I LOVE WRITING THIS ALICE EPIC.

As I've gotten older, I've completely lost my penchant for writing long, gorgeous descriptions and flowery language (I think it's directly correlated with my decision to become an Economics major, where papers are to-the-point, no BS, just pure information). I still love *reading* those kinds of fics of course, especially when done well, but writing them is something I have to force out for pacing reasons. What I really love writing is dialogue, he-said-she-said, move plot, move! Now I feel like doing this, now I'm going to add this in there, oh it would be cool if THIS happened, and then Alice would totally be like, WTF MATE. And all of a sudden, all I want to do at work is go home and write. I'm cranking out about two chapters a week -- the only difference is, I'm not posting directly to [livejournal.com profile] alittleoddish when I'm finished, so it seems like I've burnt out. But I'm still producing at the same rate!

I am having SO MUCH FUN. Multi-chaptered fics, you guys. It's my new thing. ...At least for the next few months. We'll see if I've burned out after that, HAH.

That's so cool. ♥ I'm no good at writing multi-chaptered fics. At all. I always just give up. It's horrid.

Anyways, yay for your Alice epic!

I promise I'll get your chapters beta-d and back to you ASAP, darling! I feel like such a bad friend these days... D:
