For the first time ever (as far as I can remember anyway) I have dropped out of a ficathon. In the first three or four months when I signed up for Small Fandoms Big Bang I managed 3000 words of Lynda Day at the Chalet. I was expecting the end of the year to be busy, but not how busy it was.
I did get 5000 words done in the couple of weeks after Christmas, so I ended up with a finished first draft. But by then I resented the amount of my time it was taking up and couldn't face the re-writing and editing it needs.
So I dropped out, as the deadline is the end of March (plus I didn't want to send my first draft in for the draft deadline at the end of January).
But I promised to finish it by the end of the year. Hopefully putting that in writing in public will make sure I do it
