So ... stuff happened, then?  
I just wrote a 5500* hundred word scene.

Five. Thousand. Five. Hundred. Words. As one scene. In, need it be said, a larger story.

Remember that I'm, like, the un-frith_in_thorns when it comes to description, too — she writes evocative, vivid worlds and I have ... stuff happen in ... y'know, places that have, like, walls sometimes.

5500 wooooooords. ONE SCEEEEENE.

Awwww, whose a logorrheic little writer, hmmm? You, self! That's right! Yesss you are!

*Unless MSWord is lying. Which totally happens, right? Right??

You're right. You're right. You know you're right.

This you need to ask? :-)

And, always remember, in a milieu that adores the prolific, you could have something with which others of us are all too familiar -- the *opposite* problem ...

I know it does lie, but I don't think quite enough for that long a scene to be remotely reasonable. Heh.

And my problem was that it was all in my head but not coming out onto the page, and I had a deadline, and I blew the first two soft deadlines, and gah. Finally done, though. ::whew:: But no, not hitting a wordcount will never be a problem of mine (I'm sympathetic to those for whom it is, but I am SO wordy); deadlines, on the other hand, always will be ....

I do appreciate the encouragement, though. I just had to go all cone-of-silence to get the silly fic done; sorry for the late reply!

No worries re: "late" replies. I think you had a few other things on your mind.

"I'm sympathetic to those for whom it is"
*waves until the jumpstart kicks in*

If you do happen to be handing out encouragement for those weeping over sequencing while panicking over deadline (and for my next trick ...), I'll be over in the cone you just left.

It's a good cone. I think it'll serve you well. Heh.

I have faith in you. And if ever you need a sounding board for plotting or story questions, I'm here (my user @livejournal.com) — I love process stuff, and I can at least give it a shot ....

Everything I've written this year just crossed 6000 words and that encompases 2-plus-a-beginning stories. You go, girl!

Oh, like my tendency to go on and on and ON is any surprise to you at all. Pfft. ;>
