"In a way, we're the same 2 people looking out to sea for a wave that would carry all our fantasies

Last night I was gonna post positive things to balance my rage, but I felt kinda like passing out instead (circa 9:30pm). And it was lovely cool breeze with thunder (or trucks/amateury fireworks... who knows). But of course, the longer I lay there the more awake I felt. So back to the computer.

Worked on some fic some more. I have _way_ too many pieces I'm interested in working on. I would _love_ to finish one each month, but that seems like too high a bar (I am lame, I know). I am trying to figure out the best way to motivate myself and keep myself on task. Posting (lists) to LJ? (Because publically posting something makes me feel hardcore obligated to do it -- hence my reticence to post about various plans.) Enlisting someone to talk me through any story trouble I'm having? I reject the reward system because I get distracted by wanting the reward and often cheat and take the reward anyway. I suppose I could post daily wordcounts, which would be like Option 1 but with less of the pressure to work on a specific piece (because I know my contrary nature would likely cause me to lose interest in a specific story if I publically obligated to working on it); though I feel superlame taking up postspace with daily wordcounts.

I suspect this will be met with silence as most of my recent calls for input have been, but so it goes.
