Why the World Needs Superman...  

Remember that part where we said (multiple times) that we were not gonna write Lois' editorial?  The part where we said the couple of paragraphs a few chapters back might be joined by a few more, but we were absolutely not going to attempt something of that scope and power?  Remember?

We lied.

We just wrote it.


Ever have the feeling that something awesome was written through you, not by you?  Yeah.  OMG.

*jaw is dropped*


OK, I think I'm better now.  Anyway, it's nearly five AM and having written that 821 word editorial has pushed our hoped-for early chapter back another day.  We are up to 5.243 words and ten pages, and we still have another scene to write.  Once that's done tomorrow, though, we'll send off to the betas and get to work on the next chapter.

The Muse is no respector of the need for sleep! *grins* I still can't believe we tackled the whole thing. *shakes head in amazement* We had planned to show parts of it as Kal-El was reading, but... Wow.

Haha NO. I distinctly remember reading something along the lines of, "And that editorial Lois is writing? You'll see the full thing in a chapter or two." Granted, it's always possible I'm going crazy, but...well, whatever, I'm just happy you wrote it. And wow, that's so cool! *glomps you*

Psst, FYI, I'm going to be ridiculously busy with homework the next couple days, just so you don't think I've dropped off the face of the earth or anything. ;) ♥

Well, we only meant to write pieces of it as Clark went along. We never expected to manage all of it! But the Muse decided to allow us to channel a certain someone directly, it seems.

*WHINE!!!* But...but...I'll miss you! *sighs* Okay, fine. We should have the new chappie up by then! *snuggles* Hurry home, okay?

*LOL* It should be out on Thursday night, I hope. It took a little while longer to get this chapter out than we thought it would. :D
