Resolutions of the writing kind

Hope everybody had a nice Christmas. I ate way too much which resulted in my lounging Jabba the Hut-like on the sofa for most of the time. Oh shape, why haveth you forsaken me? I think all in all I was a bit too lazy this year for my own liking. Even, or especially, writing-wise, I was much less proficient than I wanted to be.

Actual tally of 2008: 2 multi-chaptered J2 fics (both challenge-related); a little J2 vignette; 8 SPN short fics; 6 Merlin short/middle length fics

For a whole year's time that is a sobering result. *sniff* Something that I hope to remedy next year with a renewed writing passion. For starters, apart from the long promised sequel fics *cough*, I am signed up for whenboymeetsboy where I'll hope to produce a J2 version of "Ten Things I Hate About You". We'll see how it goes with prompt snatching over on j2_everafter in January but I kind of have my heart set on a crazy idea of "Beauty and the Beast."

Also have every intention of doing spn_j2_bigbang this year and beyond that we'll see. Should cover the first half of the year nicely. I'd love to do spn_harlequin but I'm not sure they'll ever do another round. Apart from that I'll be on the look-out for other challenges. At least with those I'll reasonably try to make deadlines. *cough*

Of course, I'm not abandoning Merlin fic either. At least there I'll have plenty hiatus time. *headdesk*

And on the other side, I'll try to be better about commenting, too. Right now I'm a devoted lurker to a couple authors who deserve better than that. *sigh*

So far, the planning, folks. Now we'll see about execution.

I'm reading a couple WIPs by leonidaslion (SuiteVerse), lycaness (When Dark and Light Collide), beanside (KeptVerse) and katie_the_sith (Doctor-Patient-Privilege) as well as others where I'm terrible at commenting. *hangs head* But they're all totally worth checking out. *pimps*

Thanx! I've read something of Leonidaslion - it was good. Don't know others two but Beanside is awesome (and i'm ashamed cos i never commented there too).

LOL< I was totally thinking of doing Beauty and the Beast, too, but I think I'm not gonna even snag a prompt for that. I have way too much going on already. Good, luck, though, I have a feeling that one will go quick.

Me too so I'm not too sure I'm gonna get a shot. Then again my idea on it is so cracky, it probably would be for the best. :)

Dude, lately crack is so much more appealing than straight fic. I can't even tell you. I don't know what it is, but yeah, crack is nummy.

Heh, I can so totally relate to that. I read all those marvelous fics and then feel terribly guilty for not leaving any comments.

Yeah, totally guilty. Sigh.
