2016: A Review  
My New Year's Resolution is two-fold, the first of which - be more positive - is new. It's going to be a difficult one, since my family is always running into financial woes. The second is the same as last year: write more than the previous year. I signed up formini_wrimoin November and it really helped keep me writing. I'm thinking of making a sticky-post to keep track of my daily word count - I'll comment each day with how much I wrote. It won't always be more than 0, but hopefully I won't go days without writing.

One positive of 2016 is my success at writing more. In 2015 I wrote 6,721 words total for the year. In 2016 I wrote 45,397. I'm really proud of myself for that, even if I know some people who could write that in one story alone, lol. Hopefully I'll fill my goal of writing even more than 45k! I have tons of ideas, it's just the hard part: actually writing them.

My 2016 Fics

+ Experienced, 1907 words.
Danny's a bit lost while Owen is charting the island.

+ Making A Choice, 6679 words. Written for Tarlan and part of the romancingmcshep challenge.
The time has come for the King to marry.

+ More Than You Know, 3616 words. Co-written with darkmoore.
There seem to be a few misconceptions between John and Rodney. And jealousy. Oh, and pining. Lots and lots of pining.

+ Changes, 3123 words. Co-written with darkmoore.
John knows something has to change to make Weres more accepted on Atlantis. He has a feeling there are more than just a few who share his secret.

+ Division 52, 18644 words. Written as part of the Conspiracy Challenge and a Men in Black crossover.
John never expected aliens.

+ Refresh My Memory, 1906 words. Co-written with darkmoore.
John, Rodney and the day after a drunken night of sex...

+ Gifts Worth Giving, 1138 words. Written for selenic76.
Wooing, Rodney McKay style.

+ Riding A Desk, 2170 words. Pure porn.
This was Rodney's favorite kind of meeting.

+ Take Me To The Wild, 6214 words. Written for fandom_stocking and hasn't been revealed yet. I'll make a post when it's finally open for reading.

Right out the gate of 2017, I have at least 2 fics to be written and Romancing McShep to start thinking about. Hopefully it's a sign of how the year will go :)

Positivity isn't easy, especially in the face of the personal RL stuff we struggle with, but it's always better to cry from laughing, right?

You did some great writing this past year! I hope that continues! *\o/*

And maybe we'll finally get to that collaboration. If only I wasn't a huge slacker. LOL!

It's definitely better to cry from laughing! Lets hope that when I'm at my lowest I can find things to laugh about...

Thank you, bb ♥ I'm super proud of myself for what I've accomplished, even if I'm not really fond of the fics themselves. I don't think I've ever had so prolific a year...

LOL I've been slacking, too. Collaboration is a two-way street, after all~
