One down, two more to go...

*wipes brow*

Finished the first of three commissioned (over on Y!Gal) stories. I'd actually had them done already, then lost all three in my last computer crash. >.< So I'm re-writing them!

I never dreamed that it would be *much* harder to re-write something that you'd already finished, than writing it the first time around. I still have the ideas in my head, but it doesn't always flow as easily...

Nevertheless, the first one's done. ^__^ It's almost pure smut - with plot. *gg* And, as always, it ends up being an epic rather than just a short story. 8339 words, this time. *headdesk*

*Why* can't I just write nice, *short* PWPs...

Oh well. We'll see what the commissioner says... Hope s/he likes... *anxious*

Yes, it is!

Because the first time around, you're all fired up, you have the ideas in your head, the sentences are flowing, the muse is babbling away.

The second time around, the muse has gone off to take a world-trip, your fingers have forgotten how to type and your head feels like it hasn't been able to string words into a sentence for years.

>.<

I'm always making sure to back up my writing these days...

Not to even mention the bitter resentment over having to do it over again...

Indeed!

I'm doing it, because this is a commission. But it's hard... >.
