I always seem to get writing ideas in the shower. Today I was listening to David Wu's fabulous Fringemunks parody songs, so I had Fringe on the brain, and my Marvel thoughts drifted to an idle idea I had before. After my shower I opened up my file for Avengers AU ideas and typed up several notes about the two universes it would involve. Yeah... there's some really awesome potential there.

I am absolutely NOWHERE with my female Toni series. :( The person who was a major help in the past disappeared during November and I'm hung up on an action scene I really don't want to write but am unsure how to get around it. (If someone wants to help... god, I need it. The story is SO CLOSE to being done.)

I have maybe a couple thousand words written for short story and a main story that's for a post-AoU AU. (Following the story I posted "A Better Man") But writing overall is still a challenge for me these days.

I've been losing myself during my free time in Civilization V because it's something that relaxes me. I'm dealing with some seriously bad bouts of depression currently. (Boring details, but overwhelming and stressful financial insecurity and hard time with work sort of things.) Just having a ton of issues trying to adjust that's not going so well. So, yeah. It's hard to get through much of anything. IDEK. I do think that most of you who still read my LJ ((I'm awful at reading anyone's, myself)) understand. Still frustrating as hell. Depression sucks.

Depression does suck, and I felt that way about my writing last year. I did better than I thought I had when I went back and looked at everything, but I was in a real writing slump last year that was difficult to get out of.

The shower is one of the best places to get ideas and inspiration. I don't know what it is about it. It just really works.

*hugs* Sorry you've been having a hard time. Hopefully the depression eases up a little soon or already has even.

Thank you.
And showering (or washing dishes) seems to call out the muses. Maybe it's water? Guess I should move by the ocean

Living by the ocean would be awesome! Too bad you can't live in the ocean, then you could be a magical writing mermaid.

Saw the email notice of this when I was at work this morning and it made me laugh :)
