On writing

I have finished my month of drabbles a day! I really did write one a day and not get ahead at any point. The month suddenly feels like it’s gone really quickly. Although I had a few days where it was a struggle to find the time to write or I couldn’t think of what to write, I did manage it. And never felt the need to make any of them a double drabble either – they nearly all came in at roughly the right length. They’re all on my website under the drabble a day tag. I also wrote every single prompt I was given.

I also wrote for Remix – although that I finished in April. I wrote Of Memory (The Poker Face Remix). Since I quite wanted to write Stargate I was happy to get someone who wrote Stargate. So that worked out well for me.

You might well ask what’s next. Well, apart from the unfinished fics I have sitting around that I will finish one day… Now I’m going to write 100 drabbles between today and 6th September (which is 99 days, incidentally). I didn’t mean to, it just came up in one of the comms I’m in. The plan at the moment is to write all of these centring around Harry Sullivan. We’ll see how well that goes, but the comm has only given me 75 prompts, so I’d love some more to fill the remaining 25.

Last week I was a bit resentful at having to write a drabble a day, but this week I’ve been enjoying it. That’s partly because last week I was determined to write lots of different things and this week I decided I can write whatever I want. Although this week the hardest part has been coming up with summaries…

Since the last update I have written:

9th May
Stargate Atlantis
