To fest, or not to fest...  
I've seen multiple posts for thehp_halloween fest this evening, and I'm tempted but....I've not signed up for a fest since 2014. O_o
200 words is totally doable, a solid hour of work if I make myself sit down and concentrate, right?

The Husband says I should go for it, considering I talk about writing more now that I feel more like my old self. And with LJ so quiet these days,  I desperately miss the sense of comradery that drew me into this little slice of the fandom in the first place.

I’ve been in a writing slump the last few months after I went slightly crazy my anxiety took a sharp upward swing, so maybe biting the bullet and giving it a go will help get the gears going. 200 words. Maybe I can do that.

Edit: Well, I did it. Here's hoping it's fun for all.
I'm not gay, but $20 is $20.: pic#126576516mywitch on October 1st, 2016 11:51 pm (UTC)
People keep telling me that 200 words is nothin' - I say, give it a shot, especially since writing is on your mind and you're feeling like your old self! :D And if you are super lucky, you might get paired up with my Giant Squid prompt! LOL Now that's scary.

I think I might. 200 words by October 27th should be easy.

Now I just have to figure out what I want to write and receive.

I'm already thinking about the Giant Squid just in case...

I think such a small word count requirement is the perfect place to start.

I think you're absolutely spot on. I'm working on my sign up post now *\O/*

This is a really lovely, no-stress fest. I heartily encourage you to give it a try!

I'm going to give it a whirl, I think! Seems very low stress, and a way to be more active within the fandom.

Now I really, really, really want you to get that squid prompt!! So glad you are feeling more like yourself. Do it!!!! Yes!!! Create!!! (Unless you don't want to- in that case, just enjoy the feelings of knowing you will soon enough!)😄😄😄😄

LOL! The squid prompt would be something else, that's for sure. I've submitted my info, now it's the waiting game to see what/who I get. Hopefully this will get the gears moving like they used to.

Best of luck with the writing!

Thank you! I have missed writing terribly these last few months that I've not felt up to it. I'm hoping this will be the jump start I need to get back into the habit again.
