Never done this before, but now that I've started writing regularly it seems like a good idea.( Breakdown by MonthCollapse )
Total Year's Output
Looking back, did you write more fic than you thought you would this year or less than what you’d predicted?
I didn’t really have any idea how much I’d write, and no idea how much I wrote the year before. Towards the end of this year I figured out the value of writing regularly, and the effects are so obvious when I look at the monthly break down (October is particularly hilarious—all of those were posted within a week of each other, when I briefly fooled myself into thinking I could maintain a three chapters a week updating scheduled.) Now that I’ve begun writing regularly, I wish I had pulled it off while still in school—I had so much time then! ><
What pairing/genre/fandom did you write that you would never have predicted in January 2012?
I wrote for Lackadaisy in my first ever Yuletide event—couldn’t have predicted that at all.
What’s your favourite story of the year? Not the most popular, but the one that makes you happiest.
Kolokol’naya—it was born in Russia on a three hour bus ride over the gently rolling steppes in which I felt in my soul for the first time a longing for a place so strong I cried. I climbed a centuries-old bell tower and peered out the top, and the entire experience was amazing.
Do you have any fanfic goals for the New Year?
To finish Through the Ages before moving on to Moscow Underground—I only posted one chapter, but the story is still kicking around in my head, demanding attention. Siberia is also waiting patiently. I want to shift my fic base from ff.net to AO3, which will take time—I don’t know if I want to shift all of them, or only those I particularly like.If by the end of next year I have 100k words for my output, I would be very very happy.
