Writing Meme 2007

Happy New Year for 2008!

But first a review of my creative year...

The full list for 2007:

A look at Spike/Buffy during End of Days
If I Could Turn Back Time
Illyria does karaoke.
Working My Way Back to You (a bit of it anyway) a not-abandoned WIP.

My traditional anti-Valentine.
Spike/Buffy drabble
Just Deal
Another Spike/Buffy drabble
Spike & Angel drabble

Plus some icons and wallpapers.

Oh dear.

It's hardly been a vintage writing year for me, has it? A combination of a new job, exams, Writercon and new found interests in three other fandoms have driven me to writer's block. Woe.

But I did get a bit done and I've revived last year's writing meme:

Looking back, did you write more fic than you thought you would this year, less, or about what you'd predicted?

A lot, lot less.

What pairing/genre/fandom did you write that you would never have predicted in January 2006?

I'd never have predicted I'd finished Inertia, it had been hanging around for so long.

What's your favourite story of the year? Not the most popular, but the one that makes you happiest?

None of them really. I'm happiest with the first few chapters of Black Widow 2, but I don't want to show them to anyone until I can be sure I can finish it.

Did you take any writing risks this year? What did you learn from them?


Do you have any fanfic or profic goals for the New Year?

Working to be finished (still)! The Black Widow sequel. I'd just like my muse back really, I don't care for what fandom.

From my past year of writing, what was...

My Favorite Story: Working My Way Back to You

My Best Story: Working My Way Back to You

Story Most under-appreciated by the Universe: Working My Way Back to You

Most fun: What to write? or most humourous? Tight

Most disappointing: Working My Way Back to You - I really wanted it done.

Most sexy: Just Deal (because it's the only one with a sexy moment!)

Story With a Single Sexy Moment: Just Deal (see above)

Hardest to Write: Working My Way Back to You again.

Most Unintentionally Telling: Counting

Well, that was enlightening.

Happy New Year to you and yours!

I hope your muse comes back. If only to finish Working My Way Back to You! It sounds like you really need that one to be finished up.

What are your new fandoms besides SPN?

Happy New Year, Bogwitch. Are you going out tonight or staying in?

I'm determined to finish Working if nothing else! And I have been working on it, promise.

I picked up Life on Mars earlier in the year, and although that waned a bit, I'm still avidly awaiting it's sequel. And, of course, I'm still more fascinated by Dark Angel than I should be.

I'm staying in . I find New Year is usually one of the most disappointing nights of the year, I'm not really a party person and no one I know seems to want to have a relaxing night in sitting round the stereo listening to old records (which would be my perfect night).

Happy New Year!

As I haven't managed anything creative at all this year you look very productive!

Happy New Year to you. Thanks, I'm glad there's someone less productive than me. Hope we both manage to pick things up!

Happy New Year and enjoy your records :)


And you! I didn't get to the records, but I'm making it up today.

Have a great new year!
And I'm looking forward to Ashes to Ashes too :)

Thanks and you!

I can't wait for Ashes to Ashes, I might bust! But that might be all the chocolate.

Happy new year to you too ! May it be creative !

Do you have any fanfic or profic goals for the New Year?

Working to be finished (still)! The Black Widow sequel. I'd just like my muse back really, I don't care for what fandom.

I look forward to the sequel of Black Widow and I care about the fandom : I want it to be the Buffy one.;)

a relaxing night in sitting round the stereo listening to old records This is my idea of a lovely night as well and what we just did with husband and one of my sons. New Year night never meant anything special to me.

Happy New Year to you too!

For all my interest in other fandoms, they haven't cured me of the malaise either, so Buffy at least has a head start in that I still have a backlog of ideas for fics, I just need to be motivated to write them.

>>This is my idea of a lovely night

I'm jealous. I ended up going to bed.

I'm not even bothering with this thing this year, because my list is so pathetic. And I really did mean to sharpen up that thing you beta'd for me like a wonderful person and at least have have that along with [Unknown LJ tag]... Woe is.

Yes, you really do need to get back to that!

Thanks for the list, I try to read all your new fics as I like your writing a lot but sometime I miss stuff and this will be very useful.
Also wishing you a very happy new year (with a lot of new Spuffy fics - *selfish grin*)

Maybe I should have linked to the lists for 2006 and 2005! :)

Happy New Year to you too. I don't know about lots of Spuffy, but I'll try to do some!

I had to go back and reread "Intertia," which I'd loved when you originally posted it, but for some reason, probably to do with busyness, I never got around to commenting on. And color me excited that you're still working on "Working My Way Back to You" and the "Black Widow" universe. Your fic humbles me, honestly. SO good.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to you too!

I don't know what your in awe of my writing for, you pretty nifty yourself! Which reminds me I bookmarked your seasonal_spuffy story... I must get to reading that!

Well, belated Happy New Year. Mine was quiet--I had trouble staying awake. We watched Firefly. Yeah. This is actually my second go round--and I swore I'd never watch it. But, even though I'll never forgive Joss, the show is quite good. Not Buffy good, though.

I'm sending this from the Oregon coast, as we are on vacation. Hubby got me a laptop, so I can surf while I'm here. That's assuming the wireless connection stays up. It has been blinking in and out, I think because it is quite stormy.

Are you at all interested in Ecuador? If all works out, we are going for a week in March. Instead of writing, I'm madly trying to learn enough Spanish, that I'll be able to communicate to some degree.

Hope your New Year was fantabulous.

Sorry, forgot I had to log in on this 'puter.

"Tight" still makes me smile. :-)
