Story Title: The Revival Job
Summary: Joanna Reece and her team of con artists are after a rare art piece in the hands of a man known only as 'Adam'. It looks like it will be a straightforward job until their backer, Henry Morgan--who seems to have a history with the mark--gets involved and things start to get complicated.
Characters: Jo Martinez, Joanna Reece, Molly Dawes | Iona Payne, Abigail, Henry Morgan, Abe Morgan, Adam
When I Started: I originally started this for the Big Reveal Forever Ficathon sometime between July and September of 2015.
How I Lost My Shit: This story is pretty plotty, especially compared to what I usually write. I just didn’t give myself enough time to finish in time for the original ficathon, so I had to drop out. I never had enough motivation to finish without a deadline.
How I Finished My Shit: Looming deadlines and a lot of panicking. A lot of revision too. There were so many times that I would have an idea for a section/detail/scene and then I’d start writing, and have to stop part way through and go “...Wait a second. That doesn’t work because of x.” There was a lot of going back to the drawing board. There’s a reason I don’t write plot heavy stories very often. But the more dialogue heavy/character heavy stuff was what kept me going. Not to mention the fact that an almost all ladies heist AU was super fun to write. :D
