So this insanely talented fanfic writer [livejournal.com profile] leonidaslion has been doing this cool thing with a prompt table where she only writes a short little bit for each prompt, but they are all connected. Somehow she has managed to tell a complete story by the end, just by a short little update each time. I am ichingly (shuddup, it's a word) curious to try it, but it's like--I have enough damn stories I'm not updating. Still, the format appeals to me greatly, and I would really love to give it a whirl some day.

Maybe I could use it as a warm-up, and just write a short one each day. I mean they would have to be short because if I wrote a full-chapter sized update I wouldn't write anymore that day, probably. I dunno. We'll see what happens, I just really like the idea. *shrugs*

Don't think of you as delusional, more growing in talent. The problem I see in writing short little bits is sometimes one doesn't want to stop and sometimes one doesn't have the mind set to write. But.. writing is not just a talent, it's also a skill. Skill results from doing. So this method could do that. *shrugs* If it works and you like it, run with it. Try it with an existing story that is stuttering.
*files nails* Now where was that itch?
