my love affair with everywhere was innocent; why do you care

I can't be the only person who really loves filling prompts but just cannot ever think of any to leave for other people. Like, the only "prompts" I can think of are either the equivalent of a bingo card square or an incredibly detailed plot with no wiggle-room at all. And I don't feel that either of those things are particularly helpful to drop onto a comm/meme.

I sometimes feel rather guilty about this, actually. Like I'm going in and stealing all the prompts while leaving none in return XD I guess this is why I never have a problem with people posting lots and lots of prompts to a meme, which some people don't like? My reaction tends to be YESSS MORE PROMPTS EVERYWHERE rather than NO STOP PROMPTING UNTIL WE GET MORE FILLS. Which seems to be the stance that sherlockbbcfic and collarcorner take (not that there's anything wrong with that!).

There doesn't really seem to be a point I'm making. Just thinking aloud. What are other peoples' opinions on this?

I'm writing quite a lot of stuff at the moment. Yay! Although I looked through my notebook, and estimating 500 words per side (I actually fit slightly more on, but it's a good standard) I have 23,000 words to be typed onto the computer. UM. WHAT.

Also, this sort of conversation with helle_d is responsible for a lot of the fic I produce:
Me: Okay, so I've got this concept for the characters [explains].
Her: Yeah, I like that, write it.
Me: Well, I need to think of a plot to fit it into.
Her: Concussion.
Me: ...That's not a plot.
Her: Yes it is. It's a good plot. Write it!

So yeah.

Finally, just because I really like today's a softer world:

This needs a fic
