2019 Writing Goals

GOALS

2020 Total Word Count Goal: 150,000

2020 Total Writing Days Goal: 240

Truthfully, this may be a bit ambitious. I've got a lot of big RL things happening in the next year, and my goal is to continue to work out a healthy balance with fandom, which I do think means taking somewhat of a step back. But I thought this WC was ambitious last year and went 70k over, so we'll see what happens

2020 FIC PRIORITIES

  • Monthly/Bi-Monthly Challenges: [insanejournal.com profile] daily_deviant &[tumblr.com profile] hpfemslash-minifest
  •  
  • Fests: [community profile] hp_goldenage (already signed up!), [community profile] hp_nextgen_fest (if I run it again), [community profile] bbtp_challenge, & I'd like to participate in at least one Drarry fest, though TBD on what that is!

  • Ageplay Fic: this was a fic I'd vaguely hoped to finish up for two different fests this past year, but I'm struggling a bit with it. Which is to be expected, as I wanted to write this specifically to push myself out of my comfort zone with a kink that requires me to really do a lot of work in order to sell myself on it with this particular pairing. It's something I'd love to continue at some point, but it takes a lot out of me...

  • [community profile] hp_crossgenfest reject: this is all outlined and ready to go, and is a fic idea I've actually had for years. I'd love to have a reason to prioritize it.

  • Gift!Fics: I've got a couple of gift!fic ideas that are in various stages of development, and I'd love to get at least some of them written!

  • Deaged Fic: this is a vague idea I love, I just haven't fleshed out the actual outline/plot yet.

  • Taking Chances Sequel:This is waaay on the back-burner. Like, have-not-committed-to-making-this-a-reality back-burner. BUT, I do have a document where I've been tossing in ideas of potential plot points/scenes for a sequel, and I have a kind of vague idea of where the fic would go.I've got quite a lot of content here and should probably sit down soon and try and wrangle it into some semblance of an actual plot. I'm pretty excited about some of the ideas I have, but working on the first fic was so draining, that I'm not quite up for tackling another long Drarry fic at the moment. I'd lowkey love to do this in 2020, but I've also got some big life stuff happening next year that will likely limit writing time, so IDK if that's even remotely feasible.

JANUARY

January Word Count Goal: 15,000

Again, this might be ambitious as, historically, January is a pretty low WC month for me, and I have a ton to do this month IRL in preparation for surgery at the end of the month. But I also do have some things I'd love to work on/finish, so we'll see how it all shakes out!

January Fics to Focus On
  • February [insanejournal.com profile] daily_deviant: do final read-through and prepare for posting in February

  • [community profile] hp_goldenage: find a beta, go through final edits, and submit!

  • Drarry gift!fic: I'd love to write this one this month.

  • [insanejournal.com profile] daily_deviant Kinky Kristmas Comment Kink: I generally like to do four fills for this one, so I'd love to squeeze in one more before the end of the fest.

  • [insanejournal.com profile] daily_deviant Banging Birthday: claiming will open at the end of the month, so I'd like to snag a prompt and (ideally) actually draft the first version before the end of the month, which may be pushing it with everything else I have going on....

Upcoming Fics / Stuff on the back-burner
  • February/March [tumblr.com profile] hpfemslash-minifest: not sure if this is happening, and given some life stuff I might not be able to participate, but would love to if it works out.

  • Ageplay Fic: this was a fic I'd vaguely hoped to finish up for two different fests this past year, but I'm struggling a bit with it. Which is to be expected, as I wanted to write this specifically to push myself out of my comfort zone with a kink that requires me to really do a lot of work in order to sell myself on it with this particular pairing. It's something I'd love to continue at some point, but it takes a lot out of me...

  • [community profile] hp_crossgenfest reject: this is all outlined and ready to go, and is a fic idea I've actually had for years, but I don't really have a reason to prioritize it right now. Unfortunately, it wants to be a bit longer than my standard rare pair plot-bunnies, which makes it a poor candidate for last minute festing...

  • Deaged Fic: this is a vague idea I love, I just haven't fleshed out the actual outline/plot yet.

  • Taking Chances Sequel: basically what I've said above, LOL.

  • Pile O' Plot Bunnies: I currently have a list of over 20 concrete plot bunny ideas. Some of things I'll try and incorporate into fests or daily deviant themes. Some are sequels or codas to existing fics of mine. There are a couple of ideas here that I REALLY want to write at some point, so I'm always keeping an eye out for a good opportunity to prioritize one of my ideas.
