New Year and more stress! Yay! Can you feel the sarcasm? I know I can.
Looking over my Story Progress Page I have in my google docs I have come to the conclusion that my brain is a very traffic jammed place.
I have 10 Series that I am working on, none of which have been completed yet but I have come close with a few of them only needing a final finished story to be checked off. I need to give them all a once over and outline the actual series not just the next story to be done so I’ll have an idea of how many there will be in each section. Some I already have an answer for the Howling Series (Dog Wild/Dog Days) just needs a final fic to finish out the trilogy or the Body & Soul Series (Soulless/Summer Schooling) only has 2 completed out of 7. The rest still need a guiding hand to find their road map so I’ll be working on that on and off for the first half of the year.
I have 7 in progress fics (stories that have at least one chapter POSTED) the oldest of which hasn’t been updated since 2014 because I am easily distracted and the only thing that keeps that number and those facts from overwhelming me is that I have completed far more fics at a whopping 33 fics written, edited, and posted. With my written words totally more than 600K so I think those two facts balance each other out.
I will admit though that when I saw that 2014 date I blanched and moved that fic (My Girl, Vex/Kenzi, Lost Girl) to the top of the list to be worked on in the new year. So that one should be getting some edited chapters and progress made on it in the coming months.
I also have a ton (coughs 50+ coughs) fics that are in the planning phase including ones for fandoms I haven’t managed to produce for yet. Those fandoms include but aren’t limited to Knives Out (Marta/Ransom), The Untamed (Lan Zhan/Wei Wuxian), Star Trek (Kirk/Spock), The Addams Family Values (Joel Glicker/Wednesday Addams), Shadowhunters (Magnus/Alec) and the DCEU (Joker/Harley). I also have fics planned for fandoms I have already written for again including but not limited to Game of Thrones (Jaime/OFC), Smallville (Lex/Clark), Veronica Mars (Veronica/Logan), and Lost Girl (Lochlan/Kenzi).
The first half of my year is always my busiest but I will be working on as much as I have the energy for.
