The first draft
Sometimes that's the only way to get the story out. Especially those tense, difficult, long-abandoned stories where it might be a struggle to get back into the mood of things. Well, my middle name is Determined right.

Right now, I'm working towards that 1st draft. No matter how rough or rubbishy it is, I know that once I get it out, it's only a matter of pruning and polishing. This chapter is the real kilter to write because funny enough, at least 3 of the subsequent ones are read.

::sips cocoa::

Yes, I'm typing this at my desk---- probably as a distraction from getting back to work a.k.a. writing that 1st draft. ::grin::

The 1st draft of what? Mind sharing the plot with us?
moonspinner From: moonspinner Date: February 14th, 2007 06:27 am (UTC) (Link)
Oh, it's nothing new. It's Chapter 12 of 'Thwarted Fate'. :) It's a big deal because I haven't written anything new in that 'verse for over 6 months...

First draft, hmm? Is this an original story/novel of yours that you're working on, or something fandom related?

Would I be hoping to much to think this might be your Anakin & Dooku story? *puppy eyes*
moonspinner From: moonspinner Date: February 14th, 2007 06:27 am (UTC) (Link)
Yep! :)
fialleril From: fialleril Date: February 14th, 2007 06:41 am (UTC) (Link)
Ah, I gather the Yep is that I was hoping too much... *sighs* Or is that story part of Thwarted Fate? *confesses shamefacedly to not having read said fic*

No yep meant you're right. :) It's ok you've not read Thwarted Fate.
fialleril From: fialleril Date: February 14th, 2007 08:42 am (UTC) (Link)
*is confused* So are they the same after all? Since you said above that you were working on Chapter 12 of Thwarted Fate.

Sorry, I'm having a dim-witted day. But hey, it's nearly 3 in the morning. I think I can be excused. *stumbles off to bed*
moonspinner From: moonspinner Date: February 14th, 2007 09:41 am (UTC) (Link)
3 am in the morning! To bed with you!

Oh yes, they are the same story - Thwarted Fate and the Dooku & Ani fic, I mean. Although there isn't much Dooku and Ani yet but there will be after a while.

Huh. I guess I have a lot of catch up reading to do. ;) It may take me a while, because these next couple of weeks are looking very busy, but I'll get to it eventually. I can't pass up any fic that involves Dooku & Anakin. :D
moonspinner From: moonspinner Date: February 15th, 2007 07:05 am (UTC) (Link)
Then I'll advise you not to be in a hurry to read it now. The Dooku/Anakin bits won't start until the 3rd volume and we're in the middle of the 2nd volume now. Right now, Dooku is plotting to kill Anakin and has placed a bounty on his head. They won't start bonding until much, much later. :)

The phrase "Darth Vader has dispatched thousands of probe droids to the remote reaches of space in search of Luke Skywalker" comes to mind. :D That's a good sign, in my book.

May have to add this to my growing list of summer reading. Maybe then I'll actually have an extended period of time!

LOLOL! Thanks! :)

Yes, it definitely should be on summer reading. Hopefully, we'd have finished Volume 2 by then. :)

Are you by any chance a professional writer? You always manage to crank out all these fics so easily. That's really cool.
moonspinner From: moonspinner Date: February 14th, 2007 06:28 am (UTC) (Link)
lol! I wish I was a professional writer. But I plan to be anyway. ;) I do not crank them out easily! lol! If I did, I would have finished Thwarted Fate a year and a half ago. :(
