June 2014 Report

On the AO3 posting front, I moved on to July 2008. I'm at 253 works now, which means I've added eight stories since the last report. Most were old. The newly posted fics were the two McSheplets challenge answers Prenuptial Agreement and Stuck in the dark.

I'm so glad I don't have to add another paragraph about still not having finished the Extreme Big Bang story ;) Expect a post with beta/SPAG requests soon...

May 2014 Report

FanficCollapse )

On the AO3 posting front, I moved on to June 2008 (and I'm finally caught up with Joe/David). I'm at 245 works now, which means I've added twenty-nine stories since the last report. Most were old. The newly posted fics were the above mentioned Positive Reinforcement and the two McSheplets challenge answers Another Ring and Insights of a mind without memories.

And yes, I still didn't continue my Extreme Big Bang story. Not having an artists takes out the pressure of actually working on it. I'll see if I can motivate myself to do this in time to have two people beta it.

I've done the AO3 hits meme in April 2012 and thought I'd do it again.

April 2014 Report

Ship, McShep
FanficCollapse )

On the AO3 posting front, I moved on to January 2008 (for the McShep and Hewligan stuff; I'm further behind on Joe/David). I'm at 216 works now, which means I've added fourteen stories since the last report. All except the above mentioned "I know" were old fics.

So what happened to my plans to write during vacation? They changed to the new plan of redoing my room. I went through (almost) all my stuff which has accumulated over more than a decade and sorted it or threw it away. I'm actually still not quite done. This kept me from working on fic, but it was very much necessary and now that I have a place for (almost) everything, I hope I'll be able to keep things more tidy in the future. (One can dream...) Maybe I'll post pictures once I'm happy. At the very least I could take a photo of my little Joe/David DVD shelf ;)

And yes, this means my Extreme Big Bang story still isn't finished. I'll get it done at some point this year!

March 2014 Report

Things are going reasonably well:

On the AO3 posting front, I've finally moved on to December 2007 (for the McShep and Hewligan stuff; I'm further behind on Joe/David). I'm at 202 works now, which means I've added eleven stories since the last report. One of these was new(ly posted; though written in 2012). The new fic I posted was Ancient Match Making (McShep, PG).

If you're wondering why I didn't mention my Extreme Big Bang story, it's because I didn't work on it /o\. But I plan to finish during my vacation this month.

In other news: The Blender Foundation is running a crowdfunding campaign for Project Gooseberry. Blender is an Open Source 3D program, and it's one of my dreams to one day create a short little animated scene of McShep with it. Project Gooseberry will help fund further improvements on Blender (and create an animated full-length feature film). You can check out the pitch or learn more here.

February 2014 Report

Things are still going quite well:

On the AO3 posting front, I'm still at November 2007 (for the McShep and Hewligan stuff; I'm further behind on Joe/David). I'm at 191 works now, which means I've added fifteen stories since the last report. Three of these were new. In addition to the above mentioned Porn Batte fics, I posted Like Fine Wine (McShep, PG).

The Don't Break The Chain method is still working quite well for me. I wrote every day until February 19th when I did something for work that I really wanted to finish before the latest release of our software. Since the chain was broken, I'm giving myself a few days without writing to concentrate on finishing my SGA Reverse Bang art.

I still need to finish my Extreme Big Bang story, so that'll be priority one after finishing the Reverse Bang art.

On a personal note, today is my 10-year anniversary at the company I work. It's amazing how fast the years go by.

January 2014 Report

Started off the year quite well:

FanficCollapse )

ArtCollapse )

On the AO3 posting front, I'm still at November 2007 (for the McShep stuff; I'm further behind on Joe/David and Hewligan). I'm at 176 works now, which means I've added two stories since the last report. Both were previously posted stories.

The Don't Break The Chain method has been working quite well for me. I did write every day since I started on January 6th, and the above average word count for January is due to that I'm sure.

I absolutely and definitely need to get back to my Extreme Big Bang story. The problem is that at 75k length it'll take me several hours just to review where I was, but I plan to do that tomorrow and then finish this thing this month!

December 2013 Report

Ship, McShep
First of all, thanks so much to tarlanx and aqualegia for the virtual gifts :D Also, thank you lavvyan and starbuckssue for the messages!

As always, after the writing mania of NaNoWriMo, the December wasn't quite as word filled:

On the AO3 posting front, I'm still at November 2007 now (for the McShep stuff; I'm further behind on Joe/David and Hewligan). I'm at 174 works now, which means like in the last report I've added nine stories. This time there was one new story, the previously mentioned Regency story for Antares A Man of Reputation.

I've signed up for 150k again this year, and I've also been trying the Don't Break The Chain method and have written at least 100 words a day since January 6th. We'll see how that goes. I might also do a year 2013 summary/review thing.

October/November 2013 Report

Ship, McShep
I did actually write these two months, mostly in November :)

FanficCollapse )

ArtCollapse )

The November words bring me up to 148932 words, so I almost reached my 150k word count goal for the year!

On the AO3 posting front, I'm still at October 2007 now (for the McShep stuff; I'm further behind on Joe/David, Hewligan, and non-McShep SGA stuff). I'm at 165 works now, which isn't much progress since the last report. Of the nine posted works four were new (see above).

June through September 2013 Report

Ship, McShep
Yes, I'm horrible at posting even the monthly reports. One of the reasons was that I haven't written all that much...though things are picking up.

FanficCollapse )

My immediate writing plans are finishing the fics for my generous bidders. I'm also tempted by extreme_bigbang . 100k musingsCollapse ) I have until October 13th to decide whether to sign up or not...
