Today was "catch-up day". I was on the train, so I had time to write enough to catch up to the amount of words I'd have today if I had written 1667 words per day all month. As a result, I have three different story-bits to share, two of which I'm rather fond of.
Sirius has been on my mind a lot lately, alternately as Insane!Sirius and Alpha!Sirius, both of which I need for my Harry's Secrets story. He didn't want me to write Harry's Secrets today until I cooperated and wrote him, so I gave in for the sake of actually writing something and this was the result (I promise, it's not quite as bad as the title suggests--I'd rate it PG-13):( Exsanguination, or, How to Right a Horrible Wrong )
Then I finally managed to settle down and focus on Harry's Secrets, at least briefly. I ended with a good lead-in to tomorrow's scene, but I just couldn't inspire myself to write it today.( On Being a Werewolf Cub )
Finally, Snape decided to intervene. I let him because it would be interesting to see how to write someone who hates my main characters, just to see through someone else's eyes. Maybe, eventually, I'll even be able to write villains. For now, though, just petty insults. This scene is set in my Harry's Secrets universe, sometime in OoP or HBP, probably in Grimmauld Place.( Wolfsbane Scene )
As a side note, why can't I move all this negativity into the story where I need it? "Harry's Secret" is supposed to be negative and untrusting, and all I can do is pump all of that elsewhere. How do I move it?
