Working on UC this morning. Trying to get my heart into it, but I'm not sure it's working. Too much negativity has surrounded it at this point, and it makes it very hard to get into it. Normally I'd read the thread, catch up on reviews and what-not to get in the mood to write the next chapter, but that no longer works. I may have to stop reading any UC related comments at all until this story is done. At this point I do not enjoy writing it. I will finish it, because I can't leave something undone, but I don't enjoy it any more. The snide side of me is almost tempted to just post the remaining outline and call it done, but I wouldn't do that to you, I swear.
With Offside getting close to the end, I'm going to focus on UC just to get it done before I write anything else. Maybe that will help, maybe it won't. Either way - don't worry - it will be finished. I really appreciate everyone who has hung on this long. I know it's frustrating for all those awaiting chapters that are taking longer for me to finish. I just keep deleting crap and re-writing it because it's not flowing at all. There is going to be a major change in the story in 2-3 chapters, and I hope that will make it all start flowing again. In the meantime, it's taking forever to get it written.
Hang in there, if ya can. I've at least got some of it done, and still hope to get it off to beta in the next day or two. Unless I delete it all and start over again! LOL
