hot_tramp: snape reads fanfic (hp-fanfic)

Research is a particularly devious procrastination technique. I could stare at the blank screen and chew my lip and fret over word choice and put down a sentence that I will immediately delete and hate every phrase that comes off my fingertips ... or I could read awesomely salacious true tales of fallen women killing themselves in seedy flophouses while down-and-out addicts prepare to toss the bodies into the gutter! Which one of these things makes me feel worse about myself, and which one of them makes me feel better? TAKE ME AWAY, WIKIPEDIA.

I'm so good at procrastinating, you guys. Today, faced with the prospect of actually getting down and dirty and writing the porn bit of my fic, I was suddenly gripped by the overwhelming need to make an LJ icon to use when I eventually post said fic. Be prepared, that's my motto! So I spent about an hour looking for screencaps. No dice. Then I spent a half-hour installing a program that would allow me to make my own large batch of screencaps. Then I found out iTunes doesn't even sell the film in question, which makes NO goddamn sense, and [community profile] iheartcinema is closed, so forget pirating. Then I scoured dA for something suitable. Then I appropriated an appealing image and fucked around in GIMP for a while. VICTORY!

Did I mention that I also spent a couple hours fretting over my DW journal layout? Like, to the point that I registered an account at Colour Lovers so I could play with palettes and patterns more easily?

WRITING GETS ME SCURRED.

Also, I think I'm writing intellislash. Leaves aren't quite falling and swirling, but it's a close thing.
