2016 Year in Review: Writing

Monday, December 26th, 2016

An easy one! I only wrote two fics this year: the Star Wars story that wouldn’t end, and my nanowrimo story. 1. This Family Just Keeps On Getting Bigger, by marcicat Summary: Han shows up as a ghost, and starts to realize he missed a lot more than he thought in those fifteen years he […]

Monday? Fic day!

Monday, July 18th, 2016

At long last, the story I started last December is finished. Once they pass the point of ‘but I could make it better!’ to ‘I never want to see this again,’ I figure that’s a sign. A sign of what, I’m not entirely sure. Anyway, it’s done. Title: This Family Just Keeps On Getting Bigger […]

Getting closer now — in a fit of frustration yesterday, I typed out the (un)official end to the fic-that-never-ends: AND THEN THEY ALL HUGGED. LOTS OF HUGGING. LEIA KNEW ALL ALONG. FINN THINKS IT IS ALL JUST SUPER. POE THINKS THESE CRAZY KIDS WILL AT LEAST MAKE HIM LOOK LIKE THE REASONABLE ONE WHEN THEY […]

this is that moment

Tuesday, May 17th, 2016

You know when you’ve been working on the same fic for five months, but you haven’t actually done anything that could be called “writing” or “progress” for at least three weeks, and you’re wondering whether you should just chuck the lot of it, except that you feel kind of guilty that you left those characters […]

day of 13s

Sunday, April 10th, 2016

Happy half-marathon day to my sister! Last time *Andrea did a half-marathon, I decided I would do my own “13” goal and stayed awake for 13 hours. This time I thought I should up the challenge a little, and we’ve been talking about writing, and that seemed like a good area to focus on. Except […]

a new record!

Thursday, February 25th, 2016

Last night I thought to myself, ‘Huh — I should re-read my nanowrimo novel.’ I didn’t, but the thought occurred to me. And only three months after nano — a new record! Then I thought I might peek at it this morning, but based on past experience, reading my nano novels usually makes me fall […]

2015 fic year in review

Sunday, January 3rd, 2016

Six fics this year, with a total of about 67,000 words. 1. The one about the 2014 movie version of ‘Annie,’ with time travel. I had a lot of fun thinking about the alternate future while I was driving to and from work back in January. There’s Always Tomorrow (unless you time travel into the […]

memorable quote Monday

Monday, December 7th, 2015

So it turns out I have written a bunch of Christmas fics over the years! And I like re-reading them around this time of year, because it’s seasonal, or something, and it’s interesting to me to see how I bop through fandoms from year to year. And I remember this one! Back in those halcyon […]
