I took this from bookplayer - thinking I'm gonna give it ago.
Fanfic Year in Review- 2011
5 one-shots, multiple multi-chaptered stories updated [finally...]
My laptop broke twice this year and has been out of action for almost two weeks, so I'm leaning on my boyfriend's computer right now. I had a goal of writing 15 BSC-related one-shots, I managed 4, mainly because now, I've lost another 3 I had started writing.
This year's events in my life kind of threw me off track with my creative flow, but I managed to keep it going.
Looking back, did you write more fic than you thought you would this year, less, or about what you'd predicted?
I wrote more of my multi-chaptered stories, ones I hadn't written in about a year. I always look back at my own work, ones that are uncompleted, and I would stare until I would begin to type. For one-shots, it was a bit harder than normal but it beats 2010's track record.
What pairing/genre/fandom did you write that you would never have predicted in January?
I can't say because it's a surprise for anyone reading "Changing Lanes".
What's your own favorite story of the year? Not the most popular, but the one that makes you happiest?
"Changing Lanes" is my favorite story right now. I love writing for it, coming up with ideas and reading everyone's feedback. "Teenage Whore" would have to be my favorite one-shot. I hadn't really seen any stories for Marilyn and Carolyn Arnold. The title is just random choice for when I came up for my own challenge, but when I decieded out of the bunch to write "Teenage Whore", something popped out at me.
Did you take any writing risks this year? What did you learn from them?
For me, It was contiuning on with posting BSC fics. Since I've started writing fanfics, I've written nothing but Beyblade fics and I was getting too comfortable.
From my past year of writing, what was...
My best story of this year:
"Changing Lanes/Teenage Whore"
My most popular story of this year:
Um... "Teenage Whore" was probably the most popular.... i guess?
Story of mine most under-appreciated by the universe, in my opinion:
"Lost" - I love writing for this story and I want more people to read it!
Most fun story to write:
I tend to write the most depressing scenes and moments so anytime I get Kristy to make a remark is good.
Story with the single sexiest moment:
In "Changing Lanes", Kristy is getting it on with Cary - until she wakes up and says she needs a cold shower.
Most "Holy crap, that's wrong, even for you" story:
Mmmm... I don't know? Maybe someone should read my stories and tell me... ahahha
Story that shifted my own perceptions of the characters:
The Arnold Twins, which were the main characters in "Teenage Whore"... I don't have a twin, or a sister and I had to read multiple stories just involving them and when I wrote for them, I think it changed my original perception of them to a better one.
Hardest story to write and Biggest Disappointment:
"Exodus" is the hardest story ever. This year in december is 7 years since I've started writing it and I've got at least 25 chapters to go. I've almost revised 10 chapters and I think that's helping a lot.
"We Are All Made Out Of Stars" - which was my first fanfic about the Pike family and involving Claire, who I think is adorable. This story also then helped me write, "The Bitter End".
Most Unintentionally Telling Story:
"Cherry Bomb" kind of describes my personal downfall in 2011.
Now, I'm adding to the meme. Here are my fanfic resolutions for 2012.
- Finish "Changing Lanes"
- Finish my BSC 2011 challenge... in 2012.
- Get Exodus to the ending point.
- Write for babysitters100 and get over halfway by the end of 2012
- Finish every planned one-shot/story!
