The Unemployment Project?

The time has come for me to finally, FINALLY, quit my job. This is not a bad thing, as the job was driving me into the ground and I'm finally able to focus on schoolwork (six months to do a masters thesis, this is going to be interesting...).

However, I do really miss writing fanfic. My ficcing chops have gotten bloody rusty. So I'm thinking of doing a little project while I'm out of work - a drabble or ficlet, posting a couple of times a week. I think having a set day to post things will keep me motivated, as I work best with looming deadlines in my face. I need to find a theme, however, to write these fics around - with something so nebulous I need some sort of a prompt to keep me in line.

So, thoughts? Let me know. Finally, I've got some time to enjoy. :)

Congratulations on finally leaving that job.

Prompt: A Mysterious Ways outtake. Rose's tattoos, a night in Venice.

Thank you. :) The job was really doing me in, so it's nice to feel like I can finally get healthy again.

Prompt? You got it. Check the next post.

I have no thoughts on a theme, just thoughts that I'm very excited for more fanfic to come!

Hehe, you and me both! I'm excited to finally be able to write again, and not just school stuff.

I'm trying to find prompts for myself, whether it be basing a series of ficlets around the songs on an album (which, knowing my loves of late, would inevitably be a Muse album), or maybe putting together a series of symbols and writing a D/R ficlet for each, but that could be dangerous, LOL.

In any case, Adriana's prompt above finally spurred the other muse back into action. YAYE. :)

Well done on the quitting. I quit my job recently, best thing I ever did apart from lack of money, but looking for an evening job now, but preggers ekk.

Anyway, Prompt: TenII/Rose. First holiday together (on Earth). No angst (at all...).

I'm living off of student loans myself, which will run out eventually. Still, I've actually been able to sleep at nights. A night job while preggers though? Errrrrks, I agree!

Prompt, check. I'll warn you right now though that I'm not too good at doing TenII. Part of me still feels a bit rageful at the events of JE, so it may affect the final fic result. However, I will do my best. :)
