Writer's Block

Yup, I'm suffering from it.
At least it's the 3rd chapter I'm stuck on and not the first.

My main concern right now is that it's too boring. Besides a dream, there hasn't been any action! (Fighting action, that is). I don't want to bore you all to death with the daily lives of Renee and John, and her efforts to try and rehabilitate him like some , I dunno.

It's just the speed in which the story goes - LOAS was like this too, it's almost real time. Day by day. I want to speed it up so I can get to the major plot point and start working it in, but I don't want to leave a lot out concerning rebuilding J+R's relationship.

Maybe I'll stick in some Cortana / Lord Hood scenes, just to take it away from the daily lives of the two lovers.

UGH. Being a writer, sometimes, sucks.

No ideas, mind's running a blank. Maybe it's this headache.

I suffered during double math class today - so I was given a lot of time to think about LOAS: ATW. When I wasn't drawing a picture of John-117, I was pondering on what exactly I was going to do next.

Buut, I'm not going to say a word yet.

You will be able to choke tidbits of information out of me come October 1st when you can sink your teeth into chapter one.

Further posts on actual ideas - you'll be giving fair warning if one of my posts contains some. Everything I need to say first will be said, and then you will come face to face with something along the lines of this:


Because believe it or not, some ideas - whether they take flight or not, could be potential spoilers to the story itself.

Whether you want to look or not, it's up to you.

Hey everyone.
7 days until Love of a Spartan: After the War gets posted!
Who's excited? I know I am.
Currently, I won't lie to you, I set the due date to October because I wasn't sure how much writing I would be able to get done - and I had no idea I would be attacked with a fierce writing streak. Tonight, I've finished the 2nd chapter - and much like the first one, is clocking in at just over 7000 words, over 1000 words more than its prequel's average.
Longer chapters, boo hoo.
Naw, I know it's going to be great, right? More to read!
About the title, you can all shoot me. If you know me well, you already know that I suck when it comes to creating names, and I'm even more horrible when it comes to thinking up titles.
Bear with me on this one, people.
The story itself is good.
I'm just unsure about when it comes time to post it and I have to think up a 200 character summary. Erk. The last one sucked - and this one will most definitely follow not long behind.
Yeah, so I'm twitching to post the story now - but I can't! So sorry, I'm sticking to the due date.
At least I'm getting ahead of myself a little bit so that I'll have hopefully at least 3 chapters done when it comes to initial posting time. I won't post them all at once, of course.
Too much for you guys to handle.
Naw, I just like to draw it out.
Ya hate me now. I know. Ha ha.
Off to think about the 3rd chapter, which hopefully will begin with a vivid dream - an excuse for me to write some Covenanty (?) stuff. (I know that word does not exist, I created it. Whoo me.)
Auf Wiedersehen.
Or, those who don't understand German,
