Me every time I begin to write a new one-shot: I’ll keep this one short. Under 2000 words. I can do that.
Me two hours later: Oh, this is so gonna be longer than 2000 words.
Yeah, not even halfway with “Just the Basic” and it’s already 2000 words. I just can’t do it.
Also me: Remember, this is a fluff one-shot. You write fluff. As quickly as possible, give them the fluff scenes.
Me two hours later: Lol, let’s give them 2000 words worth of angst first. What’s fluff? Never heard of it.
