This month...I have actually written!  I know, shocking, isn't it?  I started doing Inkygirl's 1,000 word a day challenge on May 27 because I was tired of not writing anything at all.  Judging from my experiences with NaNoWriMo, I should have guessed that it would go very, very well.  I mean, I'm not hitting every day, but 27/35 days is pretty good, especially considering I had travel and work lost when my computer unexpectedly restarted in there.

I find that the more experience I have writing, the more I tend to rewrite, especially when I'm working on longer things.  "Saucy Reboot" is currently on schedule to use 3,743 words out of the 17,893 I've written because I keep rewriting it to deal with plot and characterization issues.  I still don't have much of a plot on this one.

Fics I have worked on:

  • Everything, at least a little.  Sometimes I can't decide what to work on.
  • Greatest Glory, almost pure Buffy, Saucy, 11,908 words (complete).  This is technically the prologue/prequel to all of the Saucyverse fics.  After Marcie Ross unexpectedly appeared in it, it grew to 12k words and I actually finished it.  I think this is the first time I've had dialogue that's really worked and felt easy to write.  Now I need to rewrite, and find a beta reader.  Which, by the way, I have no idea how to do.
  • "Saucy Reboot", Buffy, Saucy, 3743/17893 words (WIP).  Lots and lots of rewriting with this one, still no real plot even if the premise is strong and I have a few ideas for what I want to happen and my very first subplot.
  • Miscellaneous Saucy side-fics, Saucy, (WIP).  This verse keeps surprising me, and the more I write in it the more I want to write about Saucy itself, even though it's very peripheral to the main stories.  It's very odd.
  • Vocation, Mulan, Dinosaur, 249 words (complete).  A oneshot leading into Mulan's role in the Dinosaur'verse.  Meaning, of course, that it's before her First Death, so it's only part of the verse because I say it is.  Once it's been a few days I'll see if it needs editing.  Of course, I'm not putting any of this 'verse up anywhere other than my Blogger until I have more of the main stories in it, which is kind of aggravating me.
  • Becoming Eliot Spencer, Buffy/Leverage, [untitled verse], 581 words (complete).  Xander becomes Eliot Spencer.  There will (hopefully) be another fic in this verse, of when Leverage canon starts.  And maybe a third, when his past comes to the fore, but that's more doubtful.  I have no idea where this came from.
So...success!  How's your writing going?
