I've been feeling like I've just been writing fluff lately and not really doing something that's worthwhile. Though I'm not sure what that means, exactly. And, anyhow, isn't it worthwhile to entertain people? But I feel better if I balance the fluff out with something more difficult once in a while, so this should be good for me. Of course, it will take forever and so I'll probably write a bunch of fluff in the meantime. *g*
It seems to me like my personal fannish pace is just too frantic these days. But it's so hard to pull back. I've got myself into a place where I'm thinking, oh my god, it's Sunday night and I don't have fic to post. Which is ludicrous -- there's no reason for me to feel I should post that often. I never used to. And posting that frequently certainly contributes to the high ratio of fluff.
Though maybe people like the fluff the best.
Anyhow, I'm just rambling because I didn't have enough time to formulate the substantive post on characterization I meant to make, because I slept in because I was out late.
But do you feel like your fannish pace is getting out of control? Like it's a part-time job and if you don't put your hours in, you won't get paid?
