- So, I think I've finally found a layout that's both pretty enough and simple enough to satisfy me. Maybe. I'm really flighty when it comes to DW layouts, but I also don't have the time to waste fiddling with another one. Hopefully this one will stick around for awhile.
- Writing's been going well this week. I'm this close to 10,000 words on the Defenders Big Bang fic; right I'm just hoping to finish it with a few days left over to do some rough editing. The basic plot's in place, but they're still gaps I could do a better job of filling in. Most of my other writing has been pushed to the side, but I'm still putting a little work into the fourth Pete fic, which I think will end up being a two- or three-parter.
- On Wednesday I made fresh peach cobbler using this recipe. I doubled the amount of lemon juice and didn't bother boiling the peaches. The filling came out delicious, but I wasn't as crazy about the crust; it was a bit too thick and cakey for my taste. Maybe next time I'll try this recipe's topping.
So. One of my newest (and, let's be honest, only) writing goals is to write 500 words of the Defenders Big Bang fic every day until it's finished. And so far that's been working pretty well. I have two weeks to go before the deadline, and only about 3,000 words until I clear the minimum wordcount (10,000 words). Depending on a routine instead of inspiration has helped me get back on track with this thing, and having a specific goal in mind helps me sit down and get it done without wasting time. Okay, I still do waste time. But maybe not as much time as I usually do. I should
probably definitely try this with my other projects. It's one of those stupidly simple strategies that I should have thought of ages before now--which is probably why I never did. Oh well. I'm doing it now, and it's been a huge help.
