Its the usual thing. Getting out of my own way.
I don’t have writers block. I never have a paucity of stories whirling in my head. Usually I have four or five.
No, the problem I have is getting out of my own way to write them down. Lately I have taken to opening random unfinished stories in my fanfic files and finishing them off, just for the sake of releasing some creative steam.
‘Giraffe in Lipstick’ is the product of one afternoon’s wrestling with the brick wall I had built around my muse. I wrote the start of it last year, but then it sat there, gathering digital dust, until the other day I found it, re-read it, and the second half just popped into my head. Its silly and thin, but I think its fun, and I hope you’ll enjoy it.
You can find it here at Ao3, and here at ff.net.
