Thing the Second: I'm actually trying real, no-holds-barred self-editing on a story, which I haven't done in ages because my betas spoil the crap out of me. I swear that most of what I'm doing is deleting over-dramatic lines, eliminating parts that at one point fit where I thought the story was going but didn't in the finished product, and stream-lining dialogue. Despite this, the word count has gone up by almost a thousand words from where it started. Seriously, WTF?
Six-word stories: I've posted about these before, and they can be both tricky and a lot of fun. If you come up with one, please, share it in the comments—any fandom, no fandom, whatever— all are welcome. To kick things off, here are three six-word stories from my Inception-Supernatural AU fusion series... thing.
1. Azazel's 'special children' built spectacular dreams.
2. Sam didn't give Arthur pet names.
3. Eames could always spot Lucifer's tells.
