Day 13

In your own space, talk about setting yourself a fannish goal. Big or small, it doesn't matter. Some great examples include: complete a bingo, sign-up for a Big Bang, write that fic you've been thinking about for years, podfic that story that you love, make a fanmix for your fandom, post that bit of meta or reclist you keep postponing. Maybe resolve to be better at leaving feedback, or answering comments.

I have several goals that I would like to see accomplished -- this year, if possible!

1.  I want to finish two Works In Progress that have been dormant for far too long:
Dreaming New Dreams This one is almost finished, but it will take some research and a revisiting of the fandom (Major anime/manga) to get back into it enough to complete it.

Face of the Enemy This one has possibly four or five chapters left to bring it to a conclusion, but I am totally stuck in a place where I have to write a battle. I know a lot of what needs to be included in the chapter, but I left it too long and now I'm a bit blocked with writing it. However, I love the story, and I definitely want to finish it this year!

2.  I want to add more than just one or two chapters per year to my epic Work In Progress:
Lords of Gondor. I've been writing this one for something like ten years, so I think it's time to make some better progress. I used to be able to churn out a chapter a week, but those days are long gone. But a chapter a year is not acceptable!

3.  I want to post a "new" project:
My very first multi-chapter story that I ever wrote was called 110 Days (Lord of the Rings fandom) and was shared on a limited basis in an LotR community and its archive. I have wanted for some time to revise this story to correct some errors in the timeline and to make it more in line with book canon. It won't take much to get it in shape, because it's still quite good, if I do say so myself! I then want to start posting the edited and revised chapters on a wider basis in all the archives where I upload my writing.

If all this happens this year, it will be awesome (and a miracle), but these goals are actually doable if I behave myself and manage my time wisely and don't get writer's block. Of course, I'll be involved in other writing challenges throughout the year which I won't be able to resist because the prompts are so appealing, but these are my always-in-front-of-me goals that I will continue to pursue until they are accomplished!
