Just finished typing up part 2 of 2 of a sequel to “Traction”. (That’s the first thing I’ve managed to write this year, and it’s good to see I’ve still got it after a very unproductive December - with 6500 words no less :D)
I think it’s time for a break, then maybe to play some Spyro 2: Ripto’s Rage (Gateway to Glimmer)… and try to plot some Case Story material because I also joined the first big bang this year:
Dropped out of Extreme Big Bang (to spare my beta readers, mostly, and to give myself more time and less stress).
What else am I planning on the field of sequels?
And that’s just the “one shots”; there are multiple series that are waiting for continuation:
On a slightly unrelated note, I’m wanting to write some more Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes (AEMH) fic. (Who’s stopping me? I’ve even got a series planned!)
Also, I’ve seen The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug twice by now and it’s safe to say I’m going to try and tackle my LotR stories next year, bringing the old ones back in a more polished form - and going on where I’ve left off with “The Last Journey”, if I get that far (that story is getting some minor-to-major re-writes, just saying).
So, good luck for next year!

The year 2013’s word count for posted works amounted to a mind-blowing 713 733 words!
I cannot say this enough: I love you Marvel. I love you MCU.
So, since you apparently can’t work on two novels at once on NaNoWriMo, I switched the fic I planned on writing for this year’s round. (I haven’t started writing yet. Weekend’s here, though. Sadly, I’m working for the bigger part of it. I’m at work right now, in fact. What can I say, I have a nice job that allows me to write on the side ^^)
“Prometheus" for EBB is still in a ‘plot construction’ -stage. It’s a huge plot, okay?
I wasn’t planning on joining Apocalypse Big Bang on its second round, due to EBB, but when the first writer’s check prompt hit my inbox, I crumbled in the face of a vicious plot bunny. (That is the fic I’m writing for NaNoWriMo. It will also be heavily based on my H/C Bingo card and the prompt “loss of vision”.) I have more than half of the plot ready and I’ll keep working on it tonight. I hope it’s going to be as great and angsty as it feels right now. (Who can resist hurt!Tony? No one, that’s who. And protective!team. And resourceful!JARVIS. And apocalypse in general.)
I’m sure most authors are familiar with the rush that comes from finishing fics. The longer the story, the bigger the relief.
I’ll be floating on cloud nine next week because I just wrapped up the writing part of Handling Pointy Things (and as I mentioned in my last post, I also wrapped up a story on Friday, for Angst Big Bang).
Of course there will be re-reading, editing, betaing and more editing in front of me before any of these things are actually finished, BUT they are all secondary to the workload and effort of actually completing something.
The next task is to figure out which project to tackle next - and more importantly, to check if I can start writing my EBB fic and use it for NaNoWriMo. (I’ve already written more than 20k this weekend, and it sucks those words don’t count towards NaNo… *pouts*)
Saw Thor: The Dark World. Seeing it again tomorrow seems like a good idea because I’m not totally sold on it.
One totally awesome cameo in it, though. OMG so funny!
Also, a perfect night in a writing zone: just completed typing up 12k+ words, finished my Angst Big Bang entry at little over 25k… and it isn’t even counted towards my NaNoWriMo, because those words need to be all from one fic, right? *hangs head*
