I did actually write something, though. Just a drabble, but apparently I'm woefully out of practice with keeping things that short. I did manage to get it down to 250 words, though it took a lot of hacking. The original version I jotted down was nearly twice as long, though not necessarily stronger. There was a bit of fat to be trimmed.
I've been thinking a lot, lately, that I've managed to fall back into the trap of being so ridiculously critical of everything I write that I begin to find it easier just not to write at all. I don't want this to happen, because it snowballs and the last time I dealt with this sort of thing, I did stop writing, completely, for a couple years. When I first started writing Inuyasha fanfic, I was just doing it for the fun of it and it helped me loosen up some. Granted, I am never completely satisfied with anything I write, but it's often said we're our own worst critics. I think I need to focus less on being "perfect" and more on the enjoyment again. This is easier said than done, though. sigh.
