Thanks to mini_wrimo, I realized that I write better, more regularly, and with more accountability if I write every day and record my word count. So far, the plan is working, and this is my third monthly update...

March was much more productive than February or January, even with a trip in there. I am slowly gearing up for my upcoming slew of writing challenges. I’m participating in both the spn_j2_bigbang and the trekreversebang this year. The rough draft of my fic for the former is due May 1, and I will be posting the fic I am writing to illustrate some awesome art for the latter sometime in May (don’t have the posting schedule yet). I also claimed a prompt for a fic at lgbtfest, and my posting date (unless it gets changed for some reason) will be June 8.

I also completed two stories for the hoodie_time Dean-centered hurt/comfort challenge, both of which are linked under the LJ cut, and I started (and have since finished) a fic for the Dean-focused hurt/comfort comment-fic meme (#2) at hoodie_time, which is also linked under the cut. I guess March was a month for whumping Dean… a lot?

“The Fulcrum of the Force,” sequel to my 2009 fic for the spn_j2_bigbang "Hunters of the Dark Side," is still coming along. I have about 72,000 words total written for it so far, I just didn’t do any writing for it (did work on plot) in March due to my other pressing story deadlines. I will resume writing vigorously on this fic in the near future!



March 2010 Total: 41,479

Total by Story:
Lament in Winter*: 4,801
BigBang 2010**: 25,398
Timeo Angelos et Dona Ferentis***: 10,563
Trek Reverse Bang****: 408
Of Leg Braces and Fairy Lights:***** 309
Mean Words Per Day: 1,338
Range (low to high): 274 (on March 22) to 5878 (on March 14)
Median Daily Word Count: 858
Number of Days Under 500: 5 (16.13%)
Number of Days Over 1000: 13 (41.92%)

*hugs* Just trying to stay focused on stuff. I could be so much more productive, but I am soooooooo easily distractable. It's like ooh shiny fic! and I'm off. :D

I've written over 100K in a month before? And 30K in one day (once)... I can't be productive like that all the time, but sometimes? My muse is verbose... I am jealous of people who can write 500-word ficlets that make sense. :)

10K and 13K are no small feat! Go you!! :D *cheers for bigbang*

Dude, that is so awesome! Before I had the kiddos I could pull that off...*sigh* - but I did get a talent for drabbles while I was preganant - couldn't write anything else, lol! Brain was too fuzzy! Couldn't do it before, but...yeah.

Thanks honey. The BB is going to be a standalone, but in the end it will lead to a much bigger story. OY. Me and my damned epics! They always get out of hand!

*hugs you*

What is it about epics? I feel like we need some sort of epic repellant right up there with our need for plot bunny repellant... I have the same problem. Everything I think about turns out *huge*!!

Right?! UGH, it's ridiculous! And people wonder why I don't fic more *whimpers* - they gett intimidating! And dammit, I got two plot bunnies off of the last eppie ALONE *cries*

This is a really, really good idea, and I think I'm going to give a try at it.

I'm so excited for your fic- I have this week off from school, so I'm really glad I have this time to work on my pictures.

Yay! The fic is coming along nicely. I'm not as far done as I hoped since I got bitten by a plot bunny and had a bit of a diversion for a few days, but I think it will turn out really well in the end. My beta informed me the beginning is quite a tease! I hope you are happy with the fic, and I can't wait to see how your finished art turns out!! :D

YAY GO YOU!!!! One of these days I'm going to make you go on McGee overload so I can get my fic! But I'll let you breath first... for a second.
Loves.

Haha!! That would be a McGee/Cas fic, right? Oh man after 5.16 I think McGee would have to comfort Cas some. :) *hugs*

Apr. 4th, 2010 04:59 am (UTC)
That's the one... and it would always be McGee comforting Cas... McGee feels guilty because he thinks he's somehow responsible... hmmm ideas ideas. I should be writing these down.
love love.

You're getting this comment because you posted here or here saying that you wanted to be a reader for my "work in progress" story about Reboot!Kirk's psychology (ogod), and I've finished the Prologue of it. I hate to say it, but don't expect regular updates until about May (though there might be a bit between now and then), as my soul belongs to Other Things at the moment. Also, this is the only time I will be posting a comment about a chapter update. I would recommend making a tack for the tag "leave the stars" on my LiveJournal profile, or, if your account doesn't have that option, making a comment asking me to email or message you at a preferred location whenever I update, so I know how to do so. That said, please go here to read the chapter, and I hope you enjoy? It's, uh, short, and kind of teaser-y, but yes.

Ooh, yes, I'd love to read. :D Glad to hear you've got some work on this done, even if it is teasery!

Glad to see you're working on it after all!
