The latest To Ignite the Stars chapter has things like: "Obi-Wan looked up and saw three missiles aimed directly for him. (Insert action-y battle-y stuff in which Obi-Wan somehow makes a miraculous escape.) He executed three barrel rolls and made for the hangar of Invisible Hand. (Insert introspective daydream-y stuff in which Obi-Wan somehow simultaneously manages to think about Padmé and not get himself brutally barbecued in the battle.) (Transition paragraph.) (Dialogue.) Then Obi-Wan and Anakin arrived at the General's Quarters ..."


I really really really hate writing at times like this, but I'm trying to push through. I actually seriously considered dropping the whole damned chapter and going directly to the next part of my outline, adding in the necessary explanations for what was dropped out. That would mean sacrificing almost 2,000 words that have already been slaved over, though, and I'm not sure I'm prepared to do that. Plus, I sort of feel - for some bizarre reason - that the battle scenes that begin Revenge of the Sith belong in TIS. I don't know why. Maybe my subconscious feels like not enough has been done to establish the Anakin/Obi-Wan brotherhood, and it's trying to compensate for that. Or maybe it's just really crucial. Either way, I'm fast coming to the conclusion that the scene can't be dropped, that I'll have to push through it, and that it is going to be a pain in the ASS to finish.

In the immortal words of Kara Thrace, "Frak me." XD

Speaking of Kara, I will probably be applying for her at Theatrical Muse in the very near future. Her previous mun, who is actually a friend of mine, announced recently that she would be dropping her. I commented to my friend saying it's too bad she's dropping her (because she was really good at writing/RPing Starbuck) but squeeing with happiness over being given a chance to play her. I probably completely freaked this friend out. XD But she's happy for me, and glad someone else will be around to carry Starbuck on.

Um. Other news? Got accepted with Claire at TM and am just waiting for the mod to add me to the community. Still haven't heard back from the fanfic100 mod about my Padmé claim. Still haven't finished my Qui/Shmi fic. Still haven't posted the second Anakin/Padmé fic.

Yep, it's been a slow day in Liz-land. *sigh* Hopefully tomorrow will be better.
