Snowflake Challenge 2021 - Day 1

Challenge #1 - In your own space, introduce yourself!

Okay, this year I have an extra incentive to play since I've joined the [community profile] snowflake_challenge mod team! ::grin::

I'm, of course, [personal profile] goddess47 here and just about everywhere, which includes (but is not limited to: Live Journal, Insane Journal, Tumblr, Pillowfort, Archive of Our Own, Discord and MeWe). I mainly play on DW, LJ, AO3 and Tumblr, although I've found a HP discord that is fun. So look for me there.

I'm retired from work now, so I get to play more, which gets me into too many things sometimes! But I've also been grateful for my fellow fans this past year, we've gotten each other through some tough times.

I'm mostly a writer and I write in Stargate (Atlantis and SG1), Harry Potter and Teen Wolf. I've done a couple of fic in Shadowhunters, Check Please and a couple other fandoms (mostly as crossovers).

I'm a mod for [community profile] inkingitout and [community profile] romancingmcshep and I'm the owner of [community profile] potterfests (it's only active on LJ, but I made a DW comm that's not really used).

I'm always open to new friends. I consider myself 'low maintenance' since I use my journals mostly for posting info on my fic. So there's minimal real life things, which also means low angst and low posting. Friend me and I'll probably friend you back.

Here's to a great 2021! This entry was originally posted at https://goddess47.dreamwidth.org/100835.html. Comment here or there as you please.

The Friday Five -- New Year!

I never post more than once in a day... and I have a 'fic roundup post' still coming... meep!

This is [community profile] thefridayfive -- feel free to join in!

Out with 2020, In with 2021!

1. What was the best thing about 2020?

I've written the most fic I've ever written!


2. What lessons from 2020 will you carry into 2021?

While the introvert in me is happy alone, I write better with 'writing buddies' online.


3. How did you spend your New Year's Eve?

Early part of the night was online with my Squee friends. Then me and the hubby sat to watch the lack-of-festivities on TV.


4. Legend says what you did at midnight on New Year's Eve/Day is what you'll do all year. So what did you do?

Sat in front of the TV and my computer at the same time... (What a lovely thing to do all year!)


5. What are you most looking forward to in 2021?

I've made some new online friends this year and would like to hand out with them more. I'm also looking forward to writing new fic!

Also, continuing to participate in MultifandomPostcardExchange (on Tumblr). It's a fun exchange of postcards with fellow fans around the world...

2020 Fic Summary

This year is well worth rounding up... I written more than I think I've ever written!

I use my own tracking and I only track fic I've posted. So there are some things that are written for fests that will be posted in January and some things that I'm not sure why I'm hanging on to them... They'll see the light of day when I'm ready!

So. For 2020, I wrote a total of 170,275 words in 117 fic! Which for me is quite the total.

Some breakdowns.

Fandoms:

--Teen Wolf - 69
--Harry Potter - 31
--Stargate Atlantis - 14
--Harry Potter/Startgate Atlantis crossover - 2
--Stargate SG-1 - 1
--Stargate SG-1/SGA crossover - 1


Now 117 fic sounds like a lot, but I drabbled a lot... To be clear in definition, a 'drabble' is exactly 100 words, or a multiple of 100 words.

I wrote 43 single drabbles, 7 double drabbles, and 1 triple drabble. Most of those were done between Comfortween (October) as Teen Wolf fic and in Advent Drabbles (December) in Harry Potter fic.

So, not quite half of those 117 fic were drabbles. But doing drabbles keeps me writing and is a fun challenge to tell a story in just a few words.

I wrote 2 fic over 20K, one for Harry Potter and one for Stargate Atlantis.

I wrote almost all of these fic starting in July, once I started hanging out more with [personal profile] melagan, [profile] spikespet7 and [personal profile] wyndewalker. Having 'writing buddies' has been the best thing and hanging out with friends has been just a life saver in this sometimes icky year. Thank you, ladies!


For 2021, I hope to write as many words...

I've pledged 150K on a writing community, so that's the current goal. I'm hoping to write more SGA fic, since that's my first fandom. I've already signed up for two Stargate fic exchanges as a start on that. Although I've already signed up for a couple of Harry Potter fests/exchanges and a Teen Wolf fest... meep!

I've also signed up as a mod on Snowflake this year, and I'll continue to mod both InkingItOut and RomancingMcShep, as well as keep working on Potterfests. I've been contributing to StarGateFicRec (which I should count somewhere!) and plan to continue to do that.

I have my work cut out for me!


Hope you had a good year and that 2021 is good to all of us! This entry was originally posted at https://goddess47.dreamwidth.org/101161.html. Comment here or there as you please.
