Summertime Writing

I want to write three stories this summer and stretch my muscles by dabbling in a few different genres.

I just hit 4,500k on a good old fashioned survival action/adv story featuring just Steve and Danny. I did most of my research while on vacation, so it's unfolding at a great pace and I'm having a blast writing it. My gut says it'll hit right around 20k which I hope will make for a fun read.

I want to write a Steve/Catherine story chronicling their lives pre-canon. I can envision parts of it, but I have a feeling it'll be slow-going because of the complexity of their relationship and my desire to piece together some of the military details. I might collaborate with a fandom friend of mine on it, but we still have a lot to talk about before committing to a project together.

Lastly, I want to write another AU, most likely historical. I've debated several ideas from a gritty depression era story to a more lighthearted one set in roaring 1920's. I've even played around with modern setting on a submarine, or something to with a team of fire jumpers. We'll see what grabs me the most.

Anyhow, this is the state of my muse and I'm really excited to see where things go over the next few months. I have a feeling RL is going to be hectic and writing provides a rare outlet for the craziness.
