Fandoms Written In: Skins and Carmilla
This year I wrote and posted:
started: within the violet hour, and 7 untitled as of now pieces, all in my future verse
Looking back, did you write more fic than you thought you would this year, less, or about what you'd predicted? I didn't really have a number in mind. Mostly I just wanted it to be more than last year, and it’s double, so. I’m content. My big writing goal for this year was to EDIT, and I hardcore revised… 11 stories.
What pairing/genre/fandom did you write that you would never have predicted in January? I didn't expect to write for Carmilla at all, or like it this much.
What's your own favorite story of the year? Not the most popular, but the one that makes you happiest? Hmm. Wedding fic, probably. It’s not done yet, though, so can it be my favorite of the year?
Did you take any writing risks this year? What did you learn from them? I don’t think I did.
From my past year of writing, what was....
A. My best story of this year: I don't know.
B. My most popular story of this year: now your heart is beating in my hand
C. Story of mine most under-appreciated by the universe, in my opinion: The majority of the writing I did this year only my girlfriend has seen, and in a tiny corner of a fandom that isn’t in it for domesticity anyways, so.
D. Most fun story to write: All of them? Can I do a top three? They aren’t titled, cause they aren’t finished. In no particular order: tank top warfare, in walks…, and wedding.
E. Most Unintentionally Telling Story: None.
Fic-writing goals for 2016: Let’s double that word count again! And I’d like to finish (well, all, ideally but) half of my WIPs. Lofty goal.
Story with the single sexiest moment: Too many options. Suppose it comes down to personal preference – church sex or vampire sex?
Most sweet story: Nightmares isn’t done yet, but I think that’ll probably end up being the sweetest out of everything started this year, if we’re talking just words already on a page, wedding.
“Holy crap that's wrong, even for you” story: Um, none. I didn’t write anything terribly out there this year.
Story that shifted my own perception of the characters: None.
Hardest story to write: None were hard to write, this year, but Kenzie’s birth was awful to try and revise, and I think I’m probably just scrapping it.
Biggest disappointment: The state of my WIP list.
Biggest surprise: Finding a new fandom.
Story I haven’t yet written, but intend to: I have three ideas from this year that I haven’t started yet.
Best/worst title? I’m pleased with all the titles I’ve assigned this year.
Best/worst summary? Both miles from where you are and now your heart is beating in my hand barely – no, they don’t really have summaries at all. They’re in a very enthusiastic fandom, tho, so it doesn’t seem to have mattered. I’m shit at summaries.
Best/worst first line? Best: "It is completely and entirely Mini's idea to have sex in a church." There's a runner up, but it needs context, so. The first line of Dean vs the Munchkins isn't bad but it isn't going to immediately grab your attention, either, so I guess that one?
Best/worst last line? I'm not going to do this one. I only had three stories that actually got their last lines in 2015, it's barely a choice.
