In slightly better spirits as I approach a new month. Did not finish a WIP last month like I wanted, but still getting used to the new schedule and bouts of anxiety/depression.
I did review the Crown the Empire verse in an attempt to start writing the Post-Script. I've managed about 5K words but it's kind of like pulling teeth, so rather than force it, I think I'm just going to set it aside and come back to it again. I've a feeling what'll happen is I'll wake up morning and just be inspired, and then I'll spend two weeks writing it in a flurry, and then it'll be done. Better to wait for that then keep forcing out words that I'm just going to delete, I think.
I got randomly inspired halfway through last month to start working on the sequel to War Without End. So I have the opening scene and I know what's going to happen in the first one or two chapters, but I'm having trouble figuring out some plot points for later. That stalled a bit while I chew on ideas and figure out the best direction to go. It's going to be just as heart-clenching as War Without End was, I know that. Though I won't spoil the surprises. Just know I'm going to deal with Optimus, introduce many hatchlings and the new peeps that Ratchet's crew picked up around the universe, and answer some, if not all, of the unanswered questions left behind by WWE.
I have lots of pieces of Behind the Scenes in progress, so I'm going to work on finishing those up this month. It's grown a life and a plot, but I'm having fun with it so I think that's all that matters.
For May, I think I'll dig out the Harpyformers and see if I can get those moving again, because I really liked working on that series, and I'd love to get something postable ready to go. I also want to try and work on the last part of that Barbarian AU commission that grew enormous legs.
I haven't abandoned any of my other WIPs. I've just learned that I can't push things now, otherwise I scare the muses away. So I'll take things slow and steady. It may be years before I finish them, but so long as I carry a speck of interest in Transformers, I intend to do so. There are lots of things I still want to explore.
