Why I write fic

Seen… well, all over the place, by now. In different variants, due to people adding their own reasons. Bold any reasons that apply to you, strike out any that don’t (if you feel like it), and add three (or more, or less) reasons of your own to the bottom. REASONS I WRITE FANFIC 1. To […]

Tutorial

First, if you haven’t done so yet, go read thefourthvine’s [Rant]: Professional Writers vs. The People Who Love Their Work, Round Umpty-Snout, which is the most awesomest comeback I’ve read so far. Second, OMG, I "finished" the first draft for the Anna AU monsterfic-from-Hell yesterday! 80,000 words in so far, and that’s before revisions. *gulps* […]

Various and sundry

Went back to the treadmills of work last Monday, after having two lovely weeks of holiday, one of which was spent in the UK visiting the awesome tanaqui. The workplace is still filled with Stoopid People Who Should Know Better But Don’t (aka SPWSKNBBD). Cause, really, expecting a full-blown plan for a full-blown re-organizing of […]

Fic stuff

Apparently, I wrote over 7,000 words of draft fic over the Easter weekend. That’s not bad at all! What is, is that it’s for the Jericho AU monster fic that’s looking to be even longer than The Long Road Home, and that’ll likely be read by only one person…. A good thing that ROI is […]

Share your fic recs…?

At some time or other (since they’ve just postponed the delivery date… :() I’m expecting to receive My First E-reader. While I won’t use it for DRM’ed books, out of sheer principle, I’m considering buying non-DRM books at some point. However, my main purpose in getting an e-reader is to be able to read fanfic […]

*lightbulb* moment

I’ve been struggling on a Jericho AU for the past weeks, that, although over 30K in word count already, refused to feel comfortable. What was the point of the story? Why did the characters act the way they did? For the longest time, I couldn’t figure out what the answers to those questions should be, […]

End of Year Fic Roundup

Fic count

I finally finished uploading all my fic to AO3. As usual, when going over old stuff, it was at times cringe-worthy (I am so grateful for AO3’s backdating option, ’cause now I can point at the date and say, “See that? I was young and stupid and didn’t know any better…”), and a pleasant surprise […]

50! Stories! And writing woes….

A couple days ago, I posted my fiftieth (yes, five-oh!) story for SPN. Now, for some people, that might not be much of an achievement, but it does make Supernatural my most prolific fandom by far! Even more surprising, seeing how the muses still are extremely reluctant to come out and play–except for the occasional […]

Fic times

Writer’s block hasn’t entirely resolved itself (or the Muses are still absent due to me having been on holiday, which always makes it hard to get back into the game), but even so, I have fic! Fandom: Jericho Title: Lucky Man Rating: General Characters: Jake/Heather Word count: 1,600 Summary: Jake Green is a lucky man: […]
