Feeling overwhelmed by the talent

I so enjoyed my work yesterday designing a corporate web site for a construction company located in Austria for a couple of design artists located in Bethesda, MD with a farm in the mountains of southern Virginia. Only the internet can tie such disparate people together. I think they liked my work and I'm going back on Friday to do some more teaching. I have wanted to get into this business for so long and have been failing miserably at the marketing side for it feels like eons. Hopefully this job will lead to others.

On the Farscape fanfic front--I am so awed by the talent out there that it has me scared to write. I feel so stupid and stymied by my lack of ability to write coherent fiction. I think what capped it was a three-way discussion between Kazbaby, Cathy1967 and myself plot bunnying one of Cathy's brilliant concepts. Kaz and Cathy were so good and my ideas were so lame that I have almost decided to put down the pen.

I want to meet Frelled by Fate, PhiPhi, and other of Kaz' friends and join in the fun it seems they have. I am beginning to beta for a couple of folks, which I really enjoy. I hope I will get up the nerve to write again.

Anyway, today's job is updating the teaching log, sending billing invoices for my time (yeah!) and grocery shopping.

BULL!!! I've told you, you're just used to writing non-fiction and teaching people with your writings. You just have to stretch out more with it, be more descriptive, get more into the characters heads and getting into their feels. I don't know shit about writing. I just write what I want to read...that's it girl.

Sooooo, now you know how I feel when you and cathy start rattling off the ideas at 80 miles per hour.

I got my restraining order to leave them alone yesterday in my mail. *g*

As for the teaching job, I'm glad you are enjoying yourself. You're very good at teaching people the ropes of a computer.

*kisses and hugs*
Ok, I get the message--onward and upward.

I think I am going to write a fic about my challenge--I feel the muse about What if TJohn and MJohn died at the same instant and Stark somehow united their souls.

thanks again for the boost.
Just dropping by from Kaz's LJ to say Hi.

Your Ralin snippet in previous entry is interesting. Maybe you and Kaz can whip this story into shape and horrify the Kansas board with your dark tale.
I took some of her ideas for part of my little fic. She's not my little plot bunny for nuttin. *bg*
