*dances right back at you*
send me some snow!!! :(
Scoops it up and sends it through the internet!
Do you guys even get snow? I know where I lived before we got it once every 20 years.
Thank you in advance, Dear Yuletide Santa! I shook my present, and know the fandom, but I have no idea which characters you chose. :) The fun of selecting “any” and meaning it. <3
Well, at least I can catch up on the tv I’ve been letting pile up so I can get Yuletide stuff done…
Ok. I just don’t want to be a disappointment if I write something a bit less robust.
As long as the story feels complete, and is over 1000, that’s all you need! If you feel inadequate after it’s done, you can always go find treats to write from the Dear Yuletide Author spreadsheet. :) I for one, never complain about having more fic to read!
Whoa. Do most people write that long? I had thought it was more of a one shot type thing!
It varies. That total is combined for four different fics. But last year my assignment ended up being that long. Honestly, I just write until the plot is done, however long that is!
I think someone found that the average was more in the 2000 range (but I don’t have facts to back it up or anything). But people write anything from just at 1000 to major epic length. If you look at last year’s collection sorted by word count, you’ll see what I mean.
So how is the Yuletiding going everyone?
- 17,642 words between four fics (one assignment, two pinch hits, one treat)
- one is posted, two are in beta process, the fourth just started (waiting for open canon to go on hiatus)
- I usually try to beat the previous year’s word count, but I don’t think I’ll beat 2012’s 25,000-ish. Just too busy between now and deadline.
- I hope to fit in at least one more treat.
