I was starting to think it would be the last one revealed! But I wrote:
Tea and Biscuits (1225 words) by paranoidangel
Fandom: Sarah Jane Adventures, Doctor Who (2005)
Rating: General Audiences
Characters: Eleventh Doctor, Sarah Jane Smith, Sky Smith
Summary: Sarah Jane had seen the Doctor a few times since he dropped her off in Aberdeen. All by chance and none when he knocked at her front door. Until now.

When I signed up for some reason Eleven/Sarah was one of the relationships I didn't offer. I couldn't think why but never got round to adding it. Helpfully, though, getting [info]dbskyler meant I could write any of the requests and it was this one that gave me an idea of what to write. I actually wrote it during my very productive period while off work (on 'holiday' and ill) and got it done within about a week of getting my assignment.

Writing

I kept meaning to post, but I seem to either be busy or recovering from being busy. But I have crossed off quite a bit on my to do list.

The other thing I've been doing is writing. My Femslash fic is pretty much finished, aside from beta changes. And coming up with a title. I think the latter will be harder...

For Yuletide I got the fandom I was hoping I would. And then immediately wondered why I signed up for it because I couldn't possibly write it. And I didn't know what to write. I now have two bits of scenes and a vague idea of a plot and some notes for bits that'll come later.

But Public Call is due first, although the assignments for that only went out Sunday night. I had been looking at the signup summary to guess what relationship I might get. And then when I got my assignment, realised that I know more characters than the ones I signed up for and can in fact write a relationship I didn't sign up for. Which didn't help decide what to write... But then I woke up earlier than I needed to on Monday morning and now have a (very rough) idea of what I might write. Which is a start, at least.

And this is all much more writing than I've done all year, pretty much. It has done what I'd hoped and spurred me on to work on some of the (many) things I've started this year and next and not finished. I keep feeling like my writing is crap, so first drafts are fine, as they're supposed to be crap, but finishing things off, not so much. Even having had lovely comments on some (older) things with people saying how much they like it doesn't help. It just makes me think that I could write once, but can't any more. And by definition people can't say my current stuff is good because I don't have any current stuff that's finished.

But I have nearly finished my [info]dw_guestfest fic. It's only six months after the deadline and two months after the summer mini-round, but still a lot further than I thought I'd get two months ago. Maybe I'll even finish it...

Ficathons

This is the time of year when I don't get much done. My evenings tend to be:
Monday: food shopping
Tuesday: Rotary
Wednesday: ballet
Thursday: choir
Friday: work/fall over
So my weekends are for all the other things I need to do. Plus going out and doing other things.

I have signed up for [info]public_call. There is some Classic Who in there (yay!). I dithered about my sign ups because writers can write relationships as shippy or gen. I considered only asking for ones I don't mind being shipped or only asking for ones I don't want to be shipped and putting something in my dislikes (which writers have to abide by). I ended up picking some of each and specifying for each. Hopefully people won't completely ignore what I've said and ship things I'd rather not (although if anyone ships Luke/Sky I'm going to be worried). I did discover why sometimes people write letters - it turns out that the 5000 characters you get in the prompt box is not much. At least not when you have 8 relationships and write a paragraph about each of them...

I've been dithering over my Yuletide offers. I put some safe ones in and wondered whether I wanted to write something new. I went through the tag set again and pulled out everything I knew, looked at the letters and made my decision. And when I went to edit my sign up I found that the fandoms I wanted to write most were the ones in my sign up. So I should probably not touch that then...
