Now that the reveal has happened, I can post the 2010 listing of fics I wrote. The last time I did a wrap-up was in 2007. Which isn't to say that I haven't been writing, just that I really haven't been writing much.

Nevertheless, here's the wrap-up. Thanks very much due ot the AO3's "Share" function, which I'm telling you, I love and adore.

Eight fics in twelve months... )

Not that much for a year, really. Meanwhile, don't be surprised if the first fic of 2010 is a Downton Abbey fic.

How much fic could come out of the Dowager Countess's line "Will there ever be a day that does not involve fighting with an American?"

This is the story I wish I'd written for YT. Seriously. Go read it - it's awesome.

How awesome is the new Kudos button on the archive? Yay for the removal of feedback performance anxiety!

Meanwhile, here is the beautemous story that was written for me:

The Start of a Beautiful Friendship (1419 words) by Anonymous
Fandom: Chalet School - Elinor M. Brent-Dyer
Rating: General Audiences
Warning: Author Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Characters: Hilda Annersley, Nell Wilson

The beginning of an enduring partnership...

(Also, how awesome is the "Share" button!)

Yay Yuletide!

Dear Julebuck

I love Yuletide. I was in on the ground floor the year that it was rare pairings instead of rare fandoms, and since then I've only missed one year (when I was going to be flying overseas on Deadline Day, and didn't trust myself to get it finished early.) So yeah. I love Yuletide. I hope you do, too.

My requests this year are all rather shippy. That said, I'm okay with Gen in any of them, it's just that fandom in general tends shippy, and I tend specifically femslashy (as you'll know if you've looked at my fic at all.)

Fandom-specific-wise, I have the following comments:

Blue Bloods )

Mary Poppins: the musical )

Dykes to Watch Out For )

Chalet School )

Seriously - my final sentence in relation to CS counts for all my requests. Whatever you write I will hug and kiss and call George (so to speak.) I've never been disappointed by Yuletide yet, and while I say that, I don't want that to make you worry. I want it to make you confident. I will love what you write, dear Yulebuck. Go forth, write, and add to the fannish squee out there in the world!
sangerin: (yuletide)
I want to apologise, here and now, to the unfortunate person who is the recipient of my story. I wrote in a fandom in which I ought to be - and am - comfortable. And yet all I could manage was nonsense and utter fluff.

And so, dear recipient, I apologies. You deserve better than this. I'm sorry.

Bugger, bugger, Yuletide, kicking my ass, etc.

Not happy, Jan.

Lookit my icon! Lookit my icon!

Also lookit this...

I did it! I did it!

So - how much is Seven of Nine dominating my NaNo?

That would be... this much:

Wordle: Sangerin NaNo 40k

(This is on the basis of my 40k compilation, done earlier today. I'm now at 44,129.
sangerin: (nano)
When I get to December, I'm going to post about what I've learned about my writing process from this whole venture, and what I've learned about my writing process and NaNo.

But for now, let me just share with you that I'm at 39,802 words (winning is still possible!), but more to the point, what I'm writing at the moment is NC17 Janeway/Seven, with more than a hint of kink. Who am I, and what happened to the normal [personal profile] sangerin? (Must be that NaNo Insanity they talk about.)

Just 10,258 words to go...

sangerin: (nano plot)
- My NaNo is past the 35k mark. I'm feeling as though winning is possible, despite the mocking of all those purple Winner bars on the site (they're worse than the green ones. By a lot). But I'm going to spend my 750 words right now writing my Yuletide letter, because its absence was noted. (Oops). And then I'll get back to writing the Seven of Nine story that is threatening to take over the earth. (You'd never believe she's my least favourite character.)

I've caught up to last Friday. Aaand, I'm hoping to get to 22000 before I go to bed tonight. It's a real bugger when you get sick for five days in the middle of November, especially when you were already behind to begin with!

In terms of story progress:

Tom's chapter, "Pater Familias" is fully drafted! It doesn't entirely make sense (given that I discovered at the last minute that he and his father were actually still at daggers drawn at that point, rather than nicely reconciled as I'd thought. (This is the problem with continuing a complex-structured story that you last worked on eight years ago.)

Seven's chapter is turning into two, because despite being the reason I haven't worked on this for eight years, she seems to have decided that she gets to hog the limelight. And there's way too much tell and not enough show in her chapter as it is.

Kit, meanwhile, is acting *very* out of character, although I've finally convinced her that a Kit/Libby/Harry love triangle is *not* the way to go, and instead she's just randomly had a one night stand with someone who she may or may not run into again. See! I always said Kit McBride was not a self-insert!

With "Pater Familias" done, the question is whether to start inching into Harry's chapter (in which I'm not sure much happens other than jealousy and some walking around the corridors of the Enterprise) or Kathryn's.

Of course, I need to just keep writing on the two chapters I've got going as it is.

sangerin: (Default)
I'm writing this whole thing really non-linearly (is that a word?), in part because when I get stuck (as I have done, especially on the stuff in Seven's story, despite the fact that I think she has now ballooned out into getting *two* stories, drat her) I shift off onto another part of the story.

I do think though that a good thousand or so words will get Tom's chapter, "Pater Familias" done. So that - and hitting 20,000 - is what I'm hoping for today.

(Guy in picture is sleeping because of me feeling so sick and ghastly.)

A couple of days ago, a character insisted on being named Captain Corcoran. Now I'm trying to work in "what never?" "Well, hardly ever!" into the dialogue. Somewhere.

And because I haven't given you one for a while...

Corcoran swallowed. 'Fleet politics, sir. You know how it goes. There's never an assignment without some politics surrounding it.'

Owen raised his eyebrows. 'Never?'

'Well, hardly ever. Sir.' He took a step or two backwards. 'Congratulations again, Tom. Really. And enjoy your time with your father. Sir?' He snapped off a salute to Admiral Paris, and the moment it was returned, turned on his heel and hurried out of the lounge.

I am not well, and am falling behind. I wrote nothing yesterday, and haven't gotten further than 1000 words since about Tuesday. The end-of-today target would be over 21k: I'm not past 16k yet.

The plan for today is that each time I'm on the computer, I type at least a hundred words before I put it away again.

As I'm beginning to fade again - damn being sick, I had a really great weekend planned, too - I'd better choose a spot in which to write my words, and just write them.

... 800-odd words of rather gratuitous sex between an f/f pairing that never before was on the cards in this series. But hey, it got some words written (and possibly has changed one entire subplot.

NaNo update

It's still mostly garbage, although I think there's some writing that's not bad, it remains to be seen what [personal profile] shayenne will think when she sees it.

Meanwhile, my GF is out drinking for the night, but having reached 11,000 (which I haven't done as I write, but will have done by the time I post) I figure it's time to hang up the laptop for the moment. NaNo goal is still possible and in sight.

Watching my wordcount like a hawk.
