37. Talk about your current wips.
My current WIPs are little niggling demons that are always in the back of my mind, shrilly reminding me how long it’s been sine I updated them and what a horrible person I am for not doing so sooner.
(lol, but really, though).
Strictly speaking, I have three - Madness, Ex Astris, and Family Man, in that order of priority. Madness and Ex Astris are both stories that that I’ve got the bones of, but not the meat; I just need to try and find the time to flesh them out (no pun intended) and get them onto paper. Ex Astris is a little difficult to get into, largely because I started writing it such a long time ago and I’m in such a different place now - I always feel like I’m not in the right space to continue whenever I go back to it.
Family Man, since it was a one-shot I added to largely because of popular demand, is lower on the priority list, but I am rather attached to the relationship dynamics there and I genuinely want to write more of them.
Less strictly speaking, there’s a fourth WIP I’m working on, but I’ve not published any of it yet. Expect, sometime in the murky future, to see that role-swapped Human Nature fic (but Victorian, rather than Edwardian, with all the coal-dust-and-gaslights accoutrements that entails).
29. If you could write the sequel (or prequel) to any fic out there not written by yourself, which would you choose?
Oh gosh. I’ve got no idea. Most of my very favorite fics are gorgeous exactly the way they are, and I don’t really want more or less of them. That’s probably a cop-out, but there it is.
19. Stephen King once said that his muse is a man who lives in the basement. Do you have a muse?
My muse is a very, very quiet woman whispering standing somewhere behind my right shoulder, speaking in a much softer voice than I’d like her to.
