Still aliving and flailing

I have been writing, but nothing long and nothing good.  I’ve picked back up a fanfic that I started in high school approximately a thousand years ago.  I need to finish it.  I’m not in that fandom – and that fandom probably doesn’t even exist at this point – but I’m compelled to return to it. 

Has that ever happened to you?  I’ve never bought into the muse theory, where a creator is subject to the whims of a powerful and independent creation, but I have to admit that there might be a grain of truth to it.  Or it might just be pride: this is something I have to do to prove to myself… something.

As far as SQ, the novel that I create this blog for/about, I’m still struggling through it.  The plot has actually grown more nebulous the more time I spend on it.  I keep tossing out characters and storylines, and while that has made things simpler it’s also made the story much full of holes.  Enough to fill the Albert Hall, in fact.

Hopefully everyone else on the blogosphere is faring better!
