Summary:
Just as Kris gets up the courage to tell Adam how he feels about him, Adam mysteriously disappears from a bad neighborhood. Finding himself involved in a high-stakes investigation, Kris faces off with their record label, the FBI, and the demons of his and Adam's complicated past to uncover who, if anyone, could have taken Adam.

Ready Now 1/6 )

It’s done! My KradamBigBang story, clocking in at over 40,000 words, is done! I got it in under the (extended) deadline, and it feels SO GOOD to have it off my desk. My story has been claimed by a fabulous artist, too: [livejournal.com profile] xdoyoufalltoox has signed on to create a piece of original art to accompany the story, and based on her previous work, I cannot wait to see what she comes up with! I’m eagerly awaiting the posting schedule at KradamBigBang to learn my assigned posting date. The stories are going up throughout July-August.

Meanwhile, here are three things I’ve learned from my first BigBang experience:
  1. Deadlines make me more productive, yay! I haven’t written fiction on a deadline in years, and the enforced timeframe really helped me push through my writing blocks. This story would’ve taken me well over 2 months without a deadline.
  2. Next time, sign up earlier. 40k words in 5 weeks is officially too stressful a hobby for me.
  3. In general, use shorter inspirations. Nearly all the stories I’ve ever written have been epics, so apparently conceiving of short plot bunnies isn’t my strong suit. I need to practice writing shorter stories. Anyone wanna give me a prompt? I’m looking for something between 2,000-10,000 words for my next project. Instead of the 50,000-word Kradam Stalker FBI AU I’ve been outlining that really wants to be written next….
Hopefully coming soon to this journal: Stories I’ve written in the past two years that are almost good to go. I think if I rewrite some sections, I can post a few Bandom and SGA stories over the summer.

In closing, OMG KradamBigBang with [livejournal.com profile] xdoyoufalltoox art! WOOOOT!
