free fall

I am Kevin Tran.

THIS IS AN ACCOUNTABILITY POST. NO LIVEJOURNAL FOR ME UNTIL THURSDAY NIGHT. If you see me on your journal, or wherever, please yell at me. Or freeze my threads or something, please please please. XP

I'm going to get things done!

I have sworn off the following forms of procrastination:

1) refreshing my flist a billion times
2) trawling fandom for really zealous H/C fics
3) see above, replace "fandom" with "canon"
4) writing Dean badly

Because there is something seriously wrong if I have 1500 words of Dean badfic but only 1300 words of an outline for a paper that is supposed to be a lot longer than that, 0 words of a monograph review, and about 40 seconds planned of a 50 minute lecture &c.

fuuuuuuuuck meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

because it's all like that, all of it, and there's a fair likelihood that it will all continue to be like that. I feel like the answer is probably just "work on characterization," which, great. BECAUSE THAT'S SO SIMPLE. XD

My auntie has a great pasta sauce recipe that I've never quite been able to replicate--it's always missing a few registers of flavor--and I feel like this is like that. Unfortunately, unlike the pasta sauce, Dean's ingredients are not static, so as CANON GALLOPS AWAY life just gets that much harder, woe.

Of course, this is also why I'm really enjoying S9; S7 and S8 were fairly easy to step to, in terms of writing Dean. S9, though. CHALLENGE ACCEPTED... I GUESS.

^ See, this kind of bullshit? THIS IS WHAT IS NO LONGER ALLOWED. FROM NOW UNTIL THURSDAY. JESUS, SELF.
