Ugh. I've been in a completely weird mood for the last seven or eight hours, getting really upset about silly things and being irrationally annoyed at people. How do you feelings? I was so happy this morning!


Also, I've been going through this period of intense self-flagellation over my own writing. It's never really bothered me before; I know my own limitations/flaws very well, but writing fic isn't a huge part of my life, not really. I'm okay with not being excellent, I do this for fun. That doesn't mean I don't look to improve, but I'm usually pretty chilled out about it. But the last couple of days I've been really, really critical of everything and getting really frustrated about it. Which is irritating because suddenly it's not fun any more. I still want to write (turns out I'm more attached to it than I thought) but everytime I try to start something, or keep going with one of my half-dozen unfinished stories, I honestly cannot write more than a few lines without deleting them in disgust. 
 
I did a fic writing exercise a few days ago, to try and get over myself, and these were the results. I honestly have no idea how I feel about them. 
 
This was the meme I did, cobbled together by [livejournal.com profile] antistar_e from a few different ones.
 
1: Give me a number between 1 and (however many songs are in your iTunes library). Your number determines what song you get.
2. Give me a character or pairing and I will write you a drabble of no more than three paragraphs, based on the song you picked.
3. If the song is horrible, or I can't work with it, you may be asked to choose a different number.
 
 
These were (some of) the results. I got a bit carried a way on a couple (this is why I've never been able to write a 221b ficlet!) and went for more than three paragraphs :D Also, turns out it's harder to draw inspiration from a song than I thought it would be. For instance, Dark Matter is a song that often makes me think of Sherlock, but I couldn't really get anything to fit, so I just selected a few of the lyrics and based it on those. 
 
And, my first time writing Doctor Who fic...so, um, yay?
