At the moment I'm not sure if getting to where I want to be (the essence of those 300 words) is worth the readerly trip, but for the first time in a long time it's a pleasant one for me the writer. Even the chronic fiddly edits and rewrites are fun: for once it's 'this improves the story' not a desperate 'maybe this will make the story work?' And this is why fanwriting (in principle) is the antithesis of pro writing (in principle.) In fanwriting more is always more. Well, except when it's not.
nojojojo- I may have a housewarming story for you in the fulness of time.
