Ok, so I got an idea that I wanted to write. A story that combines time travel humor, mind games and silly foreshadowing. A story with only one character, consisting mostly of dalogue. What do you mean, "it's contradictory"?
I probably shouldn't have put it up for checking now.... If I released it after I got a few more followers, it could be my best shot at reaching the featured box, since it's the type of low-brow stuff that seems to enjoy mayfly romances with people who read anything with a silly description and give easy thumbs up. OTL
I think the fic could have been better if I invested more time than only five hours, but on the other hand, I would feel even worse for 'cheating' on those who follow my other fic, if this weren't a one-night stand.
That reminds me. I'll have to write some more of the other fic. Maybe tomorrow - it's well past midnght.
Hooray for productive procrastination!

Just to update my approximately one and a half followers. I've managed to write the hardest part of chapter 3 now. It only took me about three tries of writing it and then scrapping a page or so of tex because it just didn't work. I gave up for a while, but today I just sat down and pushed ut something passable. Let's see how I fare with the second-hardest part of the chapter...

Aargh! It sucks. Not the new chapter of Strong Cider, Weak Hearts, per se. Just writing it. I'm getting to the sad part of the story. I want to be writing the fluffy-wuffy conclusion already! I've got it all planned out, see. (I think I'll enjoy writing chapter 5 the most.)
Oh well. I'm only around one thousand words into Chapter 3 at the moment. It'll probably be around twice that at the least. It's pretty hard to estimate. I know my chapters are super-short, and that's probably because I'm not that good at descriptive text. The environment, the characters' movements, their thoughts and feelings. I feel like if I write more text per scene, it's so repetitive or vacant that it doesn't really add anything.
Oh, and if you've got any critique, please do leave it in a comment! I'm looking for problems both with the text as a whole and with my use of the English language. It's not my first language - you might have noticed - so I might do silly stuff with it. Grammar nazis are welcome.
