Here is a bit of it. It may wind up in [ profile] bb_shousetsu's Playing Doctor issue.

The last thing Fox remembered was being only inches away from the engine room before stars exploded in front of his eyes. No, he remembered the pain too and the whiff of air before something crashed against his skull and he crumpled, wishing he'd actually worn the reinforced skull cap he'd stolen last week. He didn't have time to think about how he'd been so close he could almost feel the diamond monocle in his fingertips before blackness took over.

I think I'm going to make good on my promise to myself to stop worrying so much about posting here every weekday and just write. I do think that I might do a Friday Five and Sunday Six so there's at least 2 posts a week. Any other day I feel like posting something I'll so so, but I need to focus on finishing things, on editing (which means I can't write to post if I edit).

I went and edited my writing schedule to force deadlines on my own writing so that I get things done. This also forces me to decide what I want to write and finish next based on where it's being submitted.

I'm hoping this will give me some more structure. I will also be adding these deadlines to my Google calendar with reminders so that I can kick myself in the pants.

I may have to resign myself to the fact that I won't get this done and betaed by the 28th. I just don't have the time to sit down wrangle it all together and somehow still manage to leave time for someone else to have a look at. It's not likely to happen. :( That doesn't mean I don't intend to finish it though. I may just have to do something else with it when I'm done. Also, I kind of think I got too far away from the theme for it to fit anymore and I don't want to sacrifice what I wrote to force it.

I did some editing today and I dunno if I'll do some actual writing or not. I can try my best to write this weekend and if I finish it and some lovely betas (at least 2) are able to get it back to me in a couple days to make last minute edits, then I can do it. But I don't want to force myself and then wind up with something I don't really like or something that gets rejected because I should have spent more time on it.

Since you're not getting a snippet today, have a lovely resource instead: 36 Surprising Ways to Boost Creativity For Free. I meant to post that a while ago.
