Here's the year end writing meme, for who am I to say no to Nos.....?

  •  (Something Spherical) - written for [info]vsee 's birthday and inspired by her musings about *koff* terminology. The brackets are because it was more of a working file name and an lj cut, but I suppose it probably is the story's official title too.
  •  I also wrote a Verbotene Liebe Christian/Olli ficlet, Not Alone
I'm surprised at this list - I really hadn't thought I'd written 11 things this year as it's felt like a very lean writing year for me.

My best story(ies) of this year / My favourite story of this year: I think I'm particularly fond of Tea For One For Two (which also became a funky, leaf-shaped Wordle picture)  and You Are What You EatMelt and Sing To Me, Come Home To Me took pictures that had been in my head for ages and became stories (freeing up a little bit of mental space!) which I enjoyed writing and reading.

Most fun story to write:
Well, I made myself laugh while I was writing You Are What You Eat, Ray Lends A Hand... and Something Spherical. I'm never sure whether that's a good thing or not.....

Sexiest story /
Story with the single sexiest moment: Maybe Melt, or the kiss in Tea For One For Two, or trying to get the shoes off the bed in Not Alone.

Most "Holy crap, that's wrong, even for you" story:
Hmmm...the number of testicle related puns in Something Spherical....?

Hardest story to write:
I had a picture in my head of the scenes in And In Whose Arms You're Gonna Be and I just didn't feel they they came across in the story as they were in my head.

Biggest Disappointment:
Only managing 3 aprilfools fics

Biggest Surprise:
Sometimes actually writing something was a pretty big surprise!

Looking back, did you write more fic than you thought you would this year, less, or about what you'd predicted?
I've not got much to compare to as I only started writing in 2007. I've written less this year than in 2007, mainly because of the 30 pieces I completed for the 2007 aprilfools. However, I'm not terribly satisfied with the quality of all those entries. Maybe time will tell, and it will be interesting to look back this time next year, but I think my 2008 writing is a little more considered, on the whole.

What pairing/genre/fandom did you write that you would never have predicted in January 2007?
Umm...photo POV? And Verbotene Liebe has been a new fandom this year.

Did you take any writing risks this year? (See above for unexpected pairings, etc.) What did you learn from them?
I wrote things for people this year - gifts and exchanges - which was something new for me. I also wrote something that wasn't for a challenge or a comm or anything like that, posted it in my journal and pimped it on the noticeboard (then had a large glass of wine!) That felt like a bit of a risk to me.  I betaed for the first time this year too.

Do you have any fanfic or profic goals for the New Year?
Every time I write something I wonder if that's the last one. So to write something in 2009 would be good. Maybe I'll finally get the angsty, other dS character POV piece to be more than just random lines on a page.....  I'd like to continue to respond to prompts and challenges as well as post fic independently.  Plus, I must definitely archive something in 2009!

I'd like to thank the academy...
[livejournal.com profile] sageness , [livejournal.com profile] zabira , [livejournal.com profile] akamine_chan  and [livejournal.com profile] luzula all betaed for me during 2008 and I'm very grateful for their support and insight. Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] vsee , too, for that golden ticket! I'd also like to say a huge thank you to anyone who's left comments - each one makes me smile and glad I wrote something.

Hooray! Thank you so much for posting, Leafy! It was great to revisit some of my favourites from among your 2008 stories, and there are a whole pile of new ones that I'm looking forward to reading. I LOVE this meme! \leafy/

Yay! I haven't done this before but it's a good thinky meme. It's lovely when someone finds something they missed!

...there are a whole pile of new ones that I'm looking forward to reading.

I hope you find something you like!
