Mistress Marilyn's POV
No shit, Tempus Fugit!
Woohoo! Finished a fic! 
19th-Oct-2009 11:52 pm
I actually feel like I've *finally* finished my latest fanfic, a western crossover between 3:10 to Yuma and Tombstone. I've spent so much time researching the last days in the life of Doc Holliday, I'm going to use his ghost as the subject matter for my 'Fright Night' story due next week in our Writing Group.

The story turned into something of an epic . . . 6,750 words, which is longer than I like to read or write.

But, hey . . . I kept having more and more I needed to say. And when my 'Doc Holliday, A Family Portrait' book arrived in the mail today, it was a sign from somewhere.

Just did some screencaps from 'Tombstone,' and now I'm ready to call it a day. My eyes and brain are shot, and I have a long week ahead, all leading up to Packing Day at the office on Saturday.

Thank God for fanfic. It's a daisy!

Congrats on finishing your fic! *does the Snoopy happy dance*

And good luck on the office move.

Thank you! It feels *so good* to finish a big story.

(And I'm kind of positively challenged by the move, even though it's turning me into a dictator.)

Way to GO on the fanfic -- which I LOVE, by the way!!! I'm actually delighted you added to it and wouldn't change a word of it. (I love that story, I really do.)

You did some great research -- and I'm thrilled the second book came today! Cool. It was a sign, for sure.

Well, it's going to be another busy week, but you'll do great (as always). We're certainly counting on you to make this move work, that's for sure!

I guess we need to head to bed soon...

And I can't wait for your other Doc Holliday story! (woo hoo)

(I can't wait until you make me a cool banner . . . then I'll start posting this around.)

OMG, the research. And the books, I *loved* them. Y'know, I love the process of writing an ambitious story. It's so worth it in the end.

And I can't wait for my banner . . .

Yay for finishing the Doc Holliday fanfic! Now please come give me a kick in the pants so I start taking time to write again! This time of year is always busy for me but that can't be a reason (and is more of an excuse,really) because I don't write any other time of the year either...As it is I am also wavering on whether or not to attempt participating in NaNo this year...Oy! =/

I haven't seen 3:10 To Yuma yet but did see Tombstone and really liked it,mostly because I love historical costuming and imagined myself as the costume designer... ;)

Have a great day,Marilyn! ♥

{{kicking you}}

Go ahead and do NaNo! At least you get tons of support and you feel like you're part of something big, so there's some payoff (unlike the lonely process that writing can often be).

And you should see 3:10. It's SO AMAZING! (The costumes in Tombstone are far more memorable, though. Those great vests and coats and hats . . . OMG.)

My inbox says, you posted it to bridal_suite, but when I go there, I don't see a recent entry from you *scratching head*. Did you post it somewhere else as well? I'd really love to read it!!

Congrats on the almost 7000 words! I KNOW how that feels to write/finish such a story. For me it's almost always like I just got a baby LOLOL

Well, I couldn't get it posted right, so I had to try again later. I was late for work, hehe.

And, yes, I posted it to theetentrain two nights ago, but the posts are moderated there now, so it will only appear when the moderator gets around to 'approving' it.

(Nice Dan smile icon!)

Glad you like my Dan smile. Here's Dan's profile ;) So you didn't post it on your own journal?
