HAPPY NEW YEAR, EVERYONE!!
I'm doing a end-of-the-year fic meme, for 2012. I actually did most of it last weekend, but I was afraid I'd have a last minute addition, so I just waited until today to post it :D
Divided by month, and including mentions of few other things that happened this year, that had an effect on my writing frequency.
But first, the personal victory of 2012:
In terms of BIG IMPORTANT THINGS that happened in 2012, the one that really matters is that I finally got on medication for my ADD. Which is marvelous, and beautiful, and all sorts of other synonyms for good. But, there was something of a trade-off. Because it took me a long time to get fully adjusted to the medications and the side-effects. And the primary side-effect I experienced was loss of appetite. And I mean LOSS. It was gone. At first, I was actively turned-off by food. Nothing tasted good, nothing was appealing, anything I ate was choked down. That went away pretty quickly, thank goodness, but I still never felt hungry, which made it way too easy to forget to eat. Now, nearly a year after starting the meds, I still don't feel hungry very often, but I've gotten to the point where I eat regularly and enjoy my food. The reason I'm telling this story here, is because the whole food ordeal corresponded pretty directly with my fic writing in 2012. Most of the winter, I had very little energy and what I did have, pretty much got focused on school. I had ideas, and I had the focus, but actually typing them out and editing and the whole process, was exhausting. So for the beginning of 2012, I wrote very little. And I'm hoping that won't be the case for 2013. The fandomy thing I DID do last winter, while I had all this concentration, but very little motivation or energy, was read fic. I went through author pages, and archives, and LJs, and finally read a lot of long fics that I'd been putting off, because I could finally concentrate long enough to get through them. So that was nice. Anyway, enough with the life ramblings, on to the fic lists!( ficsCollapse )( questionsCollapse )( statsCollapse )( Other stuffCollapse )
