Mental Whiplash

So today, I'm mentally plotting/writing the third part of my unintentional mini-series of the week. It's happy and fun and has an adorable brat of a Methos trying to win his bet with Duncan to get Triona to forgive him by the end of the day. And on the other side, until I went to bed last night (with a short break to watch Holby!), I was working on the next part of 'Fondly' which is currently dealing with evil, villainous mirrorverse Methos who's doing all sorts of terrible things to Triona.

I think I'm giving myself mental whiplash! Switching back and forth between the two is certainly proving to be an interesting exercise in writing. In a way, writing the happier stuff is helpful, because it keeps a fresh image in my mind when writing the not happy story of just what their relationship is, why they work as a couple, and the history they have.

Goodness knows they've had their up and downs (lots of downs!) over the centuries, but what's playing out in 'Fondly' could quite possibly be the defining moment in their relationship. It's good for me to remember they have a strong foundation. Brings a whole new meaning to 'for better or worse'!
