I ended up revising the fanfic that I was working on even while I was still writing it. It's the first time that I've been really aware of how and *what* I write. All your help was absolutely invaluable!
It felt strange to be so aware of how I'm writing, while at the same time trying to give the muse free reign, so as not to lose the flow of the whole thing. But I'm getting to the point where I don't just want to be writing, but writing well!
So be warned - I'll probably come up with more interesting questions concerning writing in the near future! :)
Now writer is ded. But the story is finished. And it think, the better for the revising.
