Words written during the past 2 months:

LOTRO: 5167
Les Misérables: 27 170
Tolkien: 4114
ASOIAF: 3460

Altogether that makes ~40k words, in 2 months. That is amazing, considering that I usually see myself as a glacially slow writer. And the 27k words of Les Mis happened pretty much during one month. Not all good words, obviously - a lot of it was trying to find my voice for this fandom, experimenting with various things, spending a week writing OOC idfic porn to get that out of my system, but all in all, I wrote 27k in one month even without any kind of external deadline or pressure. That's a good thing.

I also have two more stories lined up (and, umm, a kinkmeme prompt that looks so good and would be more embarrassing to post than the ooc porn I've already written /o\) and yesterday yet another story came to me that would really like to be written (or rather, the sudden realization how I could make yet another favourite trope work). I don't know what it is, but this fandom makes me want to pull out all my favourite tropes and hold them close to my heart and look at them in delight and write all the fic for them.

I have genuinely not felt like this since discovering the Vampire Chronicles fandom in 97. And the fic is all so amazing (well, not all, but I'm pretty good at judging fic by its AO3 summary, so disappointments are few) that every day it is a struggle between reading fic, telling people how incredibly happy their stories make me or, you know, actually writing myself. I should probably tell more people how much joy their stories give me though, and stop acting like a scared woodland creature (but it's hard when everything is so intimidatingly good!).

(Also, Vincent gave me yet another Eluivor plotbunny I *need* to write as well because it will be so hot. Well, only to the two of us, but, that story will need to be written. <3 And then I promised him to make bottom!Vereyar happen, which, hah, now there is a challenge, considering they have that whole Greek student/teacher thing going on and Eluivor idolizes him, but, I'm determined. It will be very good if I can pull it off. And then there is the one and only SanSan story I have in me which I should probably write one of these days, but... We'll see if that will ever happen with all the Les Mis taking over my mind.)

I've also signed up for Remix and am all excited to get to play. And I've had some rum and coke this evening, and a bit of icecream, so it's a good evening, now if only I could make myself write. (Speaking of icecream, somehow I've now lost so much weight that I weigh less than I weighed 15 years ago in school. It's... a source of neverending confusion to me. And I think this makes me happier than it should? But let's not talk about fucked up body images now, I don't think I'll ever get rid of that. Mostly what's important is that I eat a ton of local, organic fruit and veggies which I get delivered by a local farmer every week, so whatever my body makes from that is what it is, as long as I feel good. And I do feel good.)
