Again with the lateness.

Usually I make November resolutions rather than NYs because I like starting early, but last year was hectic and I forgot. So:

- Do Big Bang. I failed to turn in a draft for the last two rounds (can I still sign up even?) This year is different though - I feel like I have an idea I really want to write, I'm not claiming I've planned anything - I'm pretty sure I'm not capable of planning anything, but I've been thinking about it for most of the past month.
- Lose last bit of weight. I got so so close to my ideal goal but derailed at Christmas (alcohol and fruit cake mostly). So I'd like to drop that last bit and work on maintainance. I'm also going to work hard on my fitness as well as my weight. I should probably do chess instead. I'm just as bad at it but it's kinder on the ankles.
- Write something every day no matter how small.
- Stop being so lazy when it comes to the work I should be doing. I'd like to end the year not regretting how I spent my time.

What are your resolutions if you've made any?

Bonus points if you can spot the obvious line for me to try,

au: circus food porn road trip fusion holiday
secret relationship au: were/vamp/supernatural handcuffed/bound together secret twin/doppelganger de-aged

genderswap presumed dead WILD CARD au: college/highschool wingfic
au: steampunk sex pollen alpha/beta/omega mind control immortality/reincarnation
au: band locked in au: historical au: space au: neighbors


Go to the closest book to you. Turn to page 206. The first sentence explains your love life. Stolen from [ profile] amber1960 as the most recent poster.

I snagged two because I like to give myself some decent odds (and when I tried this yesterday I got the Hunchback of Notre Dame suggesting I drive people mad).

- Marc, the quintessential cold fish, capable of love?  - Magnificat, Julian May. I think it's quite hopeful! And mildly accurate.
- But there is a further possibility: it is conceivable that Caelius may not have been supporting Catiline at all. - Rubicon, Tom Holland. I have no idea what this means.

I selfishly want you to write ALL OF THESE, but I'll make a guess still -- the line which has both sex pollen and supernatural au?

Your resolutions are also mine, except for the Big Bang. Though some day it would be nice to write a longfic again...

That is actually my second choice line! My first is the diagonal with band, sex pollen, secret twin/doppleganger, holiday and wild card :D

Yes, you should definitely write long fic - the fandom needs it.

I didn't even consider the diagonals! But yes, makes sense.

Give the fandom what it needs, not what it wants, eh? *g* I still haven't forgotten about the Magdalene laundry AU...

Which Big Bang are you thinking of? I did the les mis one this year and it had a word count of 10k (I got 11k out of my story. ). Some day I will hit 25k but who knows when.

The SPNJ2 Big Bang I'm afraid! 20K I believe - I don't think I could ever write a 20K fic for Les Mis. Good luck with your writing goals this year.

Well, I clearly have not managed to write 20k in les mis either. I seem to stall out at around 10k or so.

Thank you! Good luck to you too! :)

Ah the Catiline conspiracy...not something I would normally associate with love lives but there you go. Maybe driving people mad (with lust) might have been a better option!

I fancy the first horizontal line actually - au: circus/ food porn/road trip/fusion/holiday...

I don't do resolutions but I'm sticking to the write every day thing. If you are interested in joining our 12mowrimo LJ community, we will be recruiting soon so let me know. (It's run by de_nugis). I;m also throwing in a draw every day target too because I need the practice.

I have no idea how the Catiline conspiracy could affect my lovelife - maybe I'll corrupt a Vestal Virgin?

I liked that first line - but I may have circused myself out with my J2 Something Wicked This Way Comes AU. So instead I'm tempted by the diagonal line which gives me my twin loves of sex pollen and doppelgangers :D

Ooh yes would definitely be interested in joining 12mowrimo - it's nice to have a little bit of company. Good luck with both the drawing + writing this year.

spnj2bigbang??? Ooooh I certainly hope so!

I would love to do it - and I have an idea, but I did fail out at about 12K last year I think. Are you signing up? (I hope so!)

From: [identity profile]
I am. I shouldn't, because I have a million deadlines for actual work writing things, but it's big bang! Yep, I'm signing up :)
