Writing Update & Creating Time to Write

The time is before the Prophecy, and a young Lucius Malfoy is sent to explore the disappearance of a Death Eater family. When he comes across their bodies, he calls on Severus to assist him. Together they have to figure out the mystery behind the murder, and deal with the revelation of the Prophecy – and how Lucius and Narcissa’s son might be involved.

Over the last couple of weeks I decided that I didn’t like the plot I was using for my Lucius Big Bang. It was going to be awkward, difficult to explain at times, and had too many other characters in it that might take away from Lucius’ spotlight. It’s a Lucius Malfoy Big Bang after all. He should be the main character!

So I’ve come up with this plot instead, and I must say I’m enjoying it way better so far. The details of the ending aren’t quite flushed out as well as I might like, but it’s coming along nicely. And do you know what’s funny? I’ve already started brainstorming a Hogwarts-related piece starring Regulus Black for the Zombie Big Bang. Which I wasn’t even considering writing! Oy, so many awesome ideas! I just need to get my butt in gear and start writing more! (Ie. creating more time to write instead of playing video games.)

Any pointers on how to create time to write?
