I think my problem is that I have just too many plot bunnies and when I want to write, I can’t decide on which one so I end up not writing anything at all.

I had planned to use the scant spare hours of my trip to firm up the next chapters in TF or Kaleidoscope, my ‘active’ stories, but instead, I found myself drafting the back story of my formerly Untitled RotJ-AU short story… For what it’s worth though, it turned out to be a fascinating back story (if I do say so myself :p) and the story itself seems quite gorgeous.

What I won’t do to be able to get someone to write my plot bunnies for free!!!

I also ‘borrowed’ a title from Buffy which is, in a nutshell, excellent for this particular story: ‘Conversations With Dead People’.

*rubs hands together with glee*

Yeah, I’ll probably never write it but it was fun just thinking about it. :D

Although making these lists tend to depress me somewhat… I will write out all the wips that have been rattling in my head:
 
SW Fan fiction
 
  1. Thwarted Fate (co-written with Reihla)
  2. Kaleidoscope Cradle to Grave
  3. Artificial Wings (co-written with Merry B Mallory)
  4. Of Like Mind (Crouching Tiger; Hidden Dragon)
  5. Living A Lie
  6. The Bargain Warrior Queen
  7. What Lies Beneath (changed the premise a lot)
  8. Conversations With Dead People
  9. Tangled Fate (co-written with Mr Black!)
  10. The Tragedy of Darth Plageius the Wise Seed of Darkness a.k.a. Genesis a.k.a. untitled PT-spanning story
    Finding Pandæmonium
  11. Phoenix Rising a.k.a. The Legend of Starkiller 
  12. Refugee (2 Parts)
  13. Untitled AU Mara/Luke Story (The Seduction of Luke Skywalker)
  14. Untitled inter-trilogy Mara Jade story
 
 
Non-SW fan fiction
    My story for the Sci-Fi writing contest
    My Desperate Housewives-influenced romance/mystery thriller – my target for Nano
  1. The Warrior Queen
 
15 wips and bunnies. Not bad at all. *g*
Write yourselves already! Lol.

you're like Coleridge! But without the drugs!

He said that his ideas were like little toads that just kept multiplying so he could never stay on one project for too long.

LOL! Thanks, that's really flattering.

The thing about bunnies, especially with fan fiction, is that you think of an AU... then an AU of an AU... then an AU of the AU of the first AU...

lol! There are just so many scenarios in this universe. *g*

Man, I know the feeling - I can come up with fic ideas like crazy, but finishing them off? My computer and private LJ entries are a graveyard of half-finished work. I'd be too afraid to make a list of it though, to know just how big that graveyard actually is. ;)

Oh, I put my skeletons on display! I'm morbid that way. *g*

Too many irons in your fire, so none of it is going to get done!
