2013 Round-up

Overall, I didn't do a whole lot of writing in 2013. It was somewhere in the neighbourhood of 22K words in total. HA! There are other writers out there for whom 22K is the low end of what they write PER STORY!

STORIES

Feb: Trope Bingo Square fill (VACATION) - Hot

June: SGA Reverse Bang - Smoke and Mirrors

Sept: McShep Match - A Rare Opportunity

Dec: SGA Santa - Reindeer Games

Filk

ZERO, NADA, ZIP, ZILCH.

I would like to write more, but it seems like the only time I actually get any writing done is when I SIGN UP and have a DEADLINE! I meant to do more squares on my Trope Bingo card, but... bah. I have so many unfinished fics and filks sitting in my "UNFINISHED" folder... It's sad, really.

At the urging of both outsideth3box and melagan, I signed up for Romancing McShep...

Because stories about the boys NEVER GET OLD!!!

Also, I have signed up for SGA Reversebang again:



Because hey, this will be the 5th year, and I've been in all the previous ones - I can't break my streak now!

I will miss the McShep Match, but I plan to sign up for SGA Secret Santa again.

Now, if I could just get my arse in gear and finish that POI/SGA fic that is languishing on my hard drive... I keep envisioning the immense heaps of confusion that could be created with Carter and John and Finch and Carter and John and McKay, and I understand POI is really quite serious, but the potential for humour is just fantastic, especially if the Machine and Atlantis got into a conversation...

Heeee! *Pokes you*

It was purely selfish, really. I just want more fic from you to read and enjoy, :D

HAHAH! I can totally get behind that. Since I do the same thing to the writers I want to read...

"C'mon, you KNOW you wanna!"

I am super excited that you've signed up for two SGA challenges :) I enjoy your work and I'm so glad that people are still writing for this fandom!

Aww! Thanks! It's nice to know there are at least a few folks out there who like to read my stuff!

I'm so glad that people are still writing for this fandom!

I KNOW! I live in fear of the day when no one is writing SGA anymore... and especially, when people stop writing the McShep! I see lots of what used to be rare pairings popping up over the last couple years, but not as much of my boys, so... YAY MCSHEP ROMANCE WHOOO!!!

Oh, yes! Sometimes when I think about this fandom disappearing, I get really sad. This fandom is my happy place; I kind of need it to continue :P That's why fests like SGA Santa, Romancing McShep, the Reverse Bang...it makes me happy to know that people are still signing up :) I want them all to continue to be a success, so they continue to run. Now if only the Atlantis Big bang would come back :P

WOOT! Yay for you signing up for romancingmchep and "lj user ="sgareversebang">! I signed up as well, though I'd better get cracking on my romancing mcshep story or there WON'T BE ONE.

And you should have heard the squee when I read you've been working on a POI/SGA fic. This NEEDS to be done! :D

Yeah, I totally need to get to work on mine! I've been having thinky thoughts, but not so much typing and writing going on.

AUGH! I KNOW, RIGHT?! but I am stymied... and mired... GRAGH! I have thoughts.... one of these days. I have had fics that sat on a back burner for 4 years before they came to fruition, and that's a long birthing process lemme tell you. I would like it to be FASTER this time. :)

I used to have this precise method: one story in editing, one WIP, one idea waiting in the wings. Somehow over the last couple of years that neat, orderly plan got all jumbled up. I've got a couple of WIPs in various stages and a bunch of ideas 'simmering' and I haven't been nearly as productive as I used to be.

The problem is, I want it all! I want to read, and comment, and write, and play, and try my hand at this or that. I either need smaller eyes, a bigger plate, or more time. ;-)

22k words sounds good to me!! Well done for signing up for Romancing McShep and SGA Reverse Bang, so have I, and I've just seen the SGA Love at SGA McSmooch too, I feel the same though, having a deadline makes me write and I hope to do more this year :) I'm looking forward to reading your entries.
