I guess I just have to read fic. As if that's a bad thing!
Speaking of fic, I can't seem to write one of those damn things without doubling or tripling my intended word-count. How do you guys write concise, lovely fics? Mine are monsters. I'm like, "Hey, fic, could you be 10k?"
Fic is like, "Cool, bra, but how about 25k?"
