Wow I’m having so much anxiety over my Big Bag fic
I was SO excited to start writing it, but every time I open up a page to start typing, I completely freeze
This all could have been one big mistake. I’ve never been the best with deadlines and this thing has to be at least 8,000 words and it has to be absolutely outstanding because I don’t want to let all of you guys and the entire Shakarian/Mass Effect fandom down and my fic isn’t set in an AU and it doesn’t deal with anything specific, I mean it’s just about love and pain and struggle and recovery after the end of ME3 and it leads up to a wedding like shit that’s so generic so I have to really make it spectacular and all of this stress is getting to me and I just want to curl up in a corner and die
Help I don’t think I can do this skfjsknsalfksjfb
First off: Take a deep breath. Drink hot chocolate (unless that’s not your style, then go for hot lemonade, that shit’s divine).
Second: You’re not going to disappoint anyone! Least of all me .__. Few people on the planet are ambitious enough to take on an >8,000 word fic challenge, let alone complete it. Hell, I have trouble writing more than a thousand words, but you’ve taken on more than 8,000? And gotten anywhere close to it? That’s an accomplishment in and of itself!
Third: Nothing you write is generic. That I know from experience. You take a fresh look on everything. If that’s where you want your fic to go, you’ll take it there from a completely different angle and it will be good. It will be fine.
You’re not going to disappoint anyone, bb <3 So just write what you want to write, and if you get in before the deadline and over the word count, congratulations! That’s an achievement! Even if you don’t, take pride in the fact you’ve written something <3
