Just did my check-in for [community profile] getyourwordsout: 16,039 words for the year to date, which is more than double what I need for my goal. (I'm trying to front-load my total to allow for slumps later on.) That's a lot of words for me, so I'm feeling pretty good!

One of my goals for writing this year is to be more wordy. That's a bit odd -- I think people are usually striving for the opposite -- but I generally have a fairly cut-down prose style that can be, well, inaccessible. A beta charitably told me it "requires close reading". I'm trying to "tell" a little more than I do now, at least most of the time.

I also feel like a lot of my work in the last six months has been fairly downbeat. Not sad, necessarily, but with a more sober mood. I'm trying to get back to a breezier mood and plottier stories for a while.

What are your current writing goals? Wordcount? Stylistic?

I am sleepy after getting up in the middle of the night to watch Roger and Rafa battle it out one more time.

I regret nothing.

When working on fic for one sports series, do not watch an episode from another while on your break. Or you may end up saying, "Yuuri and Victor don't need any more help from me to be in love. These volleyball dorks, on the other hand..."

Kageyama grabbing Hinata's collar and saying 'Nice cover'

Still catching up with S3. This is from E06, which was so intense! Like I said on Twitter, I was shipping Tsukki/Kageyama up til the last moment, when the KageHina was so strong it became a black hole that sucked in every other pairing, including pairings from every other sports series. I just managed to save Inui/Kaidoh from crossing the event horizon but everything else was lost.

So, rings

We see matching rings three times in Yuri!!! on Ice, which I thought was cool.

First is during Georgi's Free Skate in episode 7, when he's thinking about Anya. There's a photo on her Instagram of matching rings with her new guy.

It's my birthday and I like to do things hobbit-style* so here's some fic for you. :)

I have many theories about when Victor and Yuuri started sleeping together. This is one of them.

So, Otabek

I'd like to write some more substantial OtaYuri but I don't feel like I'm really getting Otabek. So here are my rambles; please feel free to add your own.

He's definitely quiet and seems introverted. He also has the resting bitch face. I love how dour his offical site image is. But that doesn't mean he's unhappy. Des his outer stoic appearance reflect a calm inner nature or is he roiling inside?

I'd like to think he has deep feelings that build up and build up until they finally explode.

His birthday is October 31. I'm not quite sure what to make of that. Obviously birthdays are somewhat significant: Chris is Feb 14. Victor is Dec 25 and Georgi (♥) Dec 26. To me, Oct 31 yells Halloween but that's a very North American POV. All Saints Day? Eve of Winter?

Yurio's birthday is March 1 and I'm not sure about that one either.

How about that motorcycle? Looks cool but how stupid can you be to ride around on a rented death machine right before a hugely important international competition? This feels like an episode of Grey's Anatomy waiting to happen.

That makes me think: he's still a young guy and he's also used to making his own decisions. I wonder if he also does it on purpose to look cool.

Based on their interaction, it seems like Otabek and JJ already know each other. We know Otabek did some training in Canada. This feels like one of those times where I might have to write some past Otabek/JJ first to sort him out before going on to Otabek/Yuri.

In conclusion, I am still unsure. How about you?

I sort of fell off of social media (except Twitter) while I was knocking down the draft of the Chris/Georgi! It's been a long longer than I thought since I last posted, probably because the story took a lot longer to write than I'd anticpated. (And turned out a lot longer.) Still one more story in the series to go. I'll be both relieved and sad when it's done. I've never written phone/Skype sex before -- it was an education!

And some OtaYuri WAFF I wrote for shiritori on LJ. I feel like the way into this pairing will be through Otabek so I want to try something more substantial from his POV. I feel like it will be tricky but rewarding to get into his head.

Day 7: In your own space, create a fanwork.

I don't have a completed fanwork to post but since I spent all day yesterday working on a WIP (and that's on the docket for today too), I'm going to call this one complete.

From Twitter: ✍️ Weekend Goal: barf out the shitty first draft of my WIP no matter how much my personal life suffers.

Day 8: In your own space, make a list of at least 3 things that you like about yourself.

Sure, let's go:

- I'm funny. In person and in my writing, when I mean to be. But now that I'm on the spot, I can't think of anything funny to say.

- I'm scary. I have what I call the "fuck-off field" which usually keeps people from randomly talking to me or sitting next to me if there's a seat free somewhere else. Since I'm also an introvert, that's just fine with me! (I have noticed it waning as I age so I'm trying to improve my resting murder-face this year.)

- I dance at my standing desk while I work. I currently have my own office, so that works out well. Usually it's happy dancing but I have noticed some angry dancing from time to time.

And that's enough self-aggrandizement for this morning!

[community profile] snowflake_challenge Day 6: Create a list of at least three fannish things you'd love to receive, something you've wanted but were afraid to ask for - a fannish wish-list of sorts.

This is difficult for me because I am not an asker. And I'm definitely a must-do-everything-myself-er. (It was years before I was comfortable even asking my partner to make me a cup of tea.)

* Invitation from an artist to collaborate on a comic or doujinshi. (I can't imagine having the nerve to ask an artist this.)

* Concrit on my writing. It's not something I would ever offer unsolicited to anyone but would love to have so I can see where I need to improve. But it's a big time commitment to ask for and also makes me feel like I'm being, I don't know, presumptuous, maybe?

* Art of Mitsui from Slam Dunk as a hockey player -- in a hockey sweater, with proper hockey hair, and all his missing teeth showing. (Maybe with Kogure in the background as his manager!) I've been daydreaming this one for years!

* For people to feel free to make requests of me. :)

I also put up a Transformative Works statement on my AO3 profile and my LJ/DW sticky posts; should have done that ages ago.
