My Remix is up and posted! EARLY!!

Big thanks to elementalv and moragmacpherson for taking a quick look-over it.

I'm kinda relieved to get it done this year, because for the first time I just wasn't managing to get in the right frame of mind to get going. Just about everything I looked at, or tried to start off on, in the fandoms I'd signed up to write, was failing miserably to spark.

I'm sure you can now see where my problem was, thanks to that sentence : in the fandoms I'd signed up to write.

Yup. That was it. As soon as I started looking at their other fic (yes, desperation was running rampant), it worked. A particular fandom that I'd never actually written, but that I'd been reading for most of my life. And ding! That was the sound of the story idea hitting. And ding ding ding! There went the story just ...flowing.... out in one great big writing session the very next morning after I'd slept on it.

Remix. Where the more you suffer in the process, the more it seems to work well in the end. Go figure.

Unfortunately, it won't go live at AO3 until the posting deadline of Sunday midnight is past, and the actual reveal won't be for another week after that.

Brave man! My remix this year is so pedestrian it hurts; I'm rather disappointed but haven't had a chance to go back to square one and reconsider.

The timing in your case certainly hasn't been of the best [/under-statement]. Still, I have faith in you!
