Planning for being creative in the new year
So, as always I have vague plans for the new year fannish wise, and I always feel like I stumble straight into the first week of the year without anything set in stone. This year, however, I think I'll adjust my 2014 fic-a-week project to a twice-a-month fic - and do like Night Vale does - post on the 1st and 15th of the month.
I'm fairly sure I'll stick with my usual OTP of Charles and Erik and doing it every other week will allow me to actually do it without killing myself.
And it'll allow me to spend some time on the arts and craft that I have fun fiddling with as well while still getting something written.
Plan is for stories between ~1K-2K *shushes people* while I know that some of them will grow fangs and drag themselves into longer ones, I want the stories to go where they want - and with the fic-a-week I was limited to being done in a week - no matter where real life tried to derail it. This time, I might adjust for 1st/15th plus minus days depending on real life - can't always be sure that I have access to post on those days, though I'll do my utmost to hit the dates.
And I'm not getting into how sucky 2016 has been to us, how many people we've lost, Anton Yelchin, Carrie Fisher (and her mother as well, today), Alan Rickman and so many others. Not to mention Brexit and the joke of the American election (and I mean that, what the everloving fuck happened there?). So here's to 2017 being better, we'll be stronger, we'll fight the shit that hits us (or the fan). And we'll bloody well be creative in any way, form or shape that we can.
