Listen, I know this post is an entire two months late. It's a metaphor for life, or something. It's definitely a metaphor for my complete inability to balance fencing, work, and the internet. The internet's been getting the shaft, lately.

I'm still planning to do a life update post! But for now: what did I write for fanfic in 2015?

I wrote and posted 56,115 words of fanfic this year. That breaks down into 16 stories. New record for low word and fic count, and once again I managed 11 stories for Yuletide, so only 5 non-Yuletide stories. The wordcount breakdown is pretty wacky, though: 25,000 words of non-Yuletide fic, 5,000 words of Yuletide treats, and 26,000 words of a Tim-Lincecum-is-a-witch. I wrote more of Just Like Ice on the Dune than I did of anything before Yuletide started. No wonder it nearly murdered me.

The lesson here is: when I'm trying to do too much at once and fencing is stressing me out and I'm supposed to be writing a dissertation and also teaching a class, I don't get much fiction written. This is super sad but not really surprising at all. My downtime ends up being a lot of TV or hanging out with friends just because I need to turn my brain off. Every once in a while I resolve to finish one of my wips, get 300 words in, get exhausted, decide I need to sleep instead. How did I use to do this? Did I use to sleep more?? At least I know I can write, because I wrote a bunch over the summer and then when tricked into it by Yuletide.

Anyway, yearly questions under the cut! Gotta figure out how to answer all of these questions with only 16 fics!
