I've somehow written about 1000 words of fic. Apparently the only thing that can still break writer's block for me is sitting in the car with the radio. I've always found it easier to write in the car, but only if it's with pen and paper. It's one reason why I've always taken a notebook with me but usually I end up putting down stream of consciousness stuff so I am happy that I've got some fic out of my head. I hate that I've only posted one story this year maybe if I can get my head out of my ass I can at least get two more posted.

(oh, and the screwy thing about the fic I've written? it's SGA, au ending of vengeance and from Sheppard's POV. i am in shock.)

Chica, your writing and that's why I'm grinning. You've written things I've loved and things that have scared me shitless. And, I'm still here and reading.

So, *cracks whip* get in there and write!

I just wish this writer's block made by PTSD would allow me to write. I have so many unfinished fics...

*blushes* Thanks! I've hit 1,900 words on the story and I think I'm almost done with it.

You're not the only one with a lot of unfinished stories. I have one that's just needed me to finish the edits from Ivory's beta on it a year ago. The problem I haven doing the edits on it is that I need a certain frame of mind to work on them because the story is complicated in its use of pronouns (and I'd thought tenses were bad. sheesh!) and its hard to think in this house.

I know its hard but perhaps you can find a spot either in or out of the house that your PTSD can't touch (a little fortress of solitude). Or maybe use a digital recorder when you're alone to put down what you want to write and that way you can simply transcribe the story.

(just an idea)

But thank you again for the vote of confidence. *hug* Hopefully, I can also finish my Cam/Sheppard story for you in the next week (it only has a touch left to do on it).

Unfortunately, I can't escape what's inside my head. I wish I could. It's done things to my ability to focus and articulate. I have difficulty even writing emails. It takes a while...

*running around squeeing for a Cam/John fic*
