I’ve been blocked for a while. Words come slowly, resistant at being tugged from their hiding places. I’ve laid the responsibility for this at the feet of no job, new job, newer job, poor sleep, whining cat, new canon, unseasonable cold, responsibilities I assumed without being asked. My list of fic ideas is long, but the words that build the worlds aren’t there. I thought I was in a fallow season.
The truth is this: there is story wanting to be told, waiting.
The truth is this: story waits, hiding itself in boxes and under rocks and between the pages stuffed into a creased manila folder, making itself apparent at random moments.
The truth is this: I wrote some truths on Thursday and more have come to be written. It’s a bit unnerving (she said, in vast understatement).
I’m not sure what form these stories will take. Some will be fic, because the headcanon I have for various characters is the right form for this content; some will be poetry, and some perhaps will become original fic. Some will just be thinky posts about writing and self-care and the patient work of words building worlds - the sort of stuff that corpsereviver2 and I talked about in our fanfic workshop groups at 221b con. 
I figure I can sit here being blocked, or I can open the door and let story out. The first option has gotten fairly boring, so what the hell? Let’s try the second. :)

As a bonus, I think the person who draws the Sherlock manga might be a bit of a Mystrade enthusiast. (sorry about the crappy picture though)

MOYERS: Do you think we can educate ourselves, that any one of us, at any time, can be educated in any subject that strikes our fancy?

ASIMOV: The key words here are “that strikes our fancy.” There are some things that simply don’t strike my fancy, and I doubt that I can force myself to be educated in them. On the other hand, when there’s a subject I’m ferociously interested in, then it is easy for me to learn about it. I take it in gladly and cheerfully…

[What’s exciting is] the actual process of broadening yourself, of knowing there’s now a little extra facet of the universe you know about and can think about and can understand. It seems to me that when it’s time to die, there would be a certain pleasure in thinking that you had utilized your life well, learned as much as you could, gathered in as much as possible of the universe, and enjoyed it. There’s only this one universe and only this one lifetime to try to grasp it. And while it is inconceivable that anyone can grasp more than a tiny portion of it, at least you can do that much. What a tragedy just to pass through and get nothing out of it.
