    I'm on my third chapter, technically, not second, but there's a part in the middle that I'm not happy with, since it's a little boring. I need to go in and alter it. Either ditch some dialogue or find some way to make the prose more interesting. Adding sarcastic prose is basically my go-to way to make boring lulls interesting, other than, you know, cutting them out. I think I can probably cut most of the part that's annoying me, in this case though. It's not hard, I'm just kind of impatient and want to get to later stuff. Especially in dialogue heavy chapters (which most of mine are but this one is in particular since all four main characters are on scene at the same time, plus there's a few more characters floating around in the scenes, not to mention the pokemon, but they don't really talk much), I usually write out all the dialogue before adding in much description, so I actually have the majority of the dialogue finished I just have to go in and add tags and actions and such and that's what's holding me up here. Again it's impatience.

    But on the other hand its Aspen's POV for the whole chapter and he is just fun to write since he's such a sullen punk and basically thinks everyone other than himself is an idiotic raving lunatic out to get him and/or Cherry.

    I always find the second chapter simple to do unless what I'm writing is episodic in nature. I usually seem to run out of steam about 5 or 6 chapters in at best.

    It's even worse when you want to write a scene, but you have a few episodes to go before reaching that scene

    Fortunately, I'm writing exactly what I've been waiting to write for two years!

    This is never a good time of year for me... I always get really depressed around mid-February for some reason, and I lose all of my motivation for school, writing, etc. until late spring. I'd be surprised if I manage to get anything written before May.

    That's when I do most of my writing. I crawl into bed with my laptop and write until I fall asleep. I can usually only stay awake for twenty or thirty minutes and I never get much done, but it works.

    Lucky you. I just stare at my computer screen until my head hurts and then try and fall asleep.

    Oh my god, seriously. I always have the end of my story or major transitional "season finales" 100% written pretty early on. I usually kill off my enthusiasm for finishing my stories that way, too. :(

    Looking through my old notes, I had... chapter 24 ("season 1" finale) completely written, chapters 46, 47, 48 (season 2 finale/season 3 intro) completely written, chapter 70 (season 3 finale) and chapter 100 (series finale) all written out. The chapter numbers are approximations, but I had pretty much every detail meticulously planned out. It's just an issue of writing it all, and I've been feeling burnt out on writing Pokemon lately.

    I never write up my finales ahead of time, but I do try to know what they are going to be. While I definitely get impatient, there's just something about the slow burn that makes it all the more satisfying, especially in a romantic fic.

    I also plan out the entire thing before I start writing. I post as soon as I finish a chapter though.

    Coming Soon...
