Don't you just love when you sit down and think "I'll just write down a few hundred words for this one comment-prompt fest" and, one accidental all-nighter later, you have 6,000 words of a finished fic?

...yeah me too.

*Headdesk headdesk headdesk.*

My mother walked in at something like half-past-six in the morning and said, "Oh Kiwi, why do you do this?" I essentially said that I had no choice: when a story comes, a story comes, and then it needs to be written down. Otherwise I just stay up tossing and turning, with my characters interacting and intermittently eyeing me as if to say, "Well? Aren't you going to go and write this down?"

Yes of course, my Mistresses; I am only your subservient scribe, here to write your tales at your beck and call, and certainly not to sleep.

Now it's gone seven in the morning and today I have to do errands, clean, wash my hair (it's a big task), pack, and do a number of other things before 'late' this evening (3am or so) when my family shall leave for Virginia Beach for vacation.

(The vacation during which I was supposed to write. And I will. More than I intend to, if each of my 'little claims' multiplies itself like this! *Headdesk again.)

Sweet dreams. I'm going to go pass out under the pile of clean laundry I was supposed to put away--and under the pug who thinks I crafted a clean-laundry-bed just for him.

ACK, SPIDER! Definitely going to bed now. Already conquered my fears and brought one spider outside today; this one I'll leave for tomorrow. (My life would be so much easier if I could just be the sort of person capable of killing a spider or a mosquito; I can only manage ticks, after they've munched on my dog.)

I've had that happen. It's a major pain.

Are you still no-poo? If so, how is that working for you?

Yeah, this happens to me waaaaay too frequently. Most of my stories are written over the course of an evening.

I am still no-poo! Four months now, I guess. It's going well. (: I've had to figure out different things, but it's been a fun scientific adventure. I'm using diluted lemon juice as an acid rinse now and loving it--plus using a bit of almond oil after my shower and brushing (I have to brush after shower since I'm wavy/curly)--so I'm quite enjoying the process.

Plus, it's just fun to be able to create my own hair stuff like a little chemist. :P

Yeah, I would love it. Go you!

I would like it more if these stories decided to flow during the day, and I wouldn't have to stay up all night to write them. :B But I must just be a dreamer haha. My creativity works the way it will.

You're apologising for leaving a comment on my entry that compliments my icon? :B You've got odd things to apologise for! Especially since the only think I can think to say is "thank you!"

It made me laugh and laugh when I saw it, too, so I knew I had to snag it for perfect this-is-my-day uses.
