Tags: , ,
I took a first stab at my BtVS holiday exchange fic this morning, and I failed utterly. I've lost the characters voices. What happened? I know these characters. I used to do them okay. I even thought I was pretty darned good at the POV character's voice. Sure it's been a couple of years since I read or wrote much in the fandom, but I wasn't expecting them to just pfft! vanish away.

I lost my actual voice a little over a year ago during a nasty bout of the flu. The laryngitis lasted more than a week, and was frustrating and amusing by turns. I'm still waiting for the funny to appear in my current predicament.

Actually, now that I think about it, all my writing lately seems weirdly stiff to me. Ugh.

Try watching some BtVS episodes and the voices should come back. Maybe they just need to be reassured that you still love them. Remind them of the good times you had together and they'll most likely come round to visit.
