GetYourWordsOut: Year Eight!
Pledges & Requirements | GYWO.net



This will be my third year participating. It's a wonderful community, with generous and thoughtful people who happen to write. :D

2014, I did really well, hitting my goal and adjusting upward twice, ending up with 268K words! This year, not so much. I haven't even broken 100K.

I'm going to pledge big again for 2016, though - not 300K big, but aim high, right?

What I am doing with my life: killing cylons.
I'm really good at: killing cylons. and blow jobs. and frakking. and drinking. and pyramid. everything.
The first things people usually notice about me: my rack and my mouth.
The six things I could never do without: flying, sex, cigars, pyramid, booze, anything that pisses Lee off.
The most private thing I'm willing to admit: I like to piss Lee off. I've probably frakked more guys than you. :D

First posted at [livejournal.com profile] het_reccers for my tenure as special reccer for November.

My view of Longmire is informed by both the series and the books. I watched the series first, then started reading the books, and each enhances my appreciation of the other. I picture the series cast when reading. I love the relationships on the show and in the book series, and am definitely rooting for the Vic/Walt romance for the long haul.

Recs - obviously, I have a thing for first times. lol

These are five out of the mere forty fics on AO3. It's a tiny fandom yet, but I enjoy reading Vic/Walt almost as much as I enjoy a good Kara/Lee fic. Almost.
lanalucy: (K L happy)
Just a reminder that I need prompts for my wishlist_fic writing this year. I've got two, and I need a minimum of six, so if you haven't dropped by to suggest something, please do.

Hmmmmm.

Star Trek Strange New Worlds

Always wanted to tell your own Star Trek story about Kirk, Spock, Janeway, Picard, Uhura, Sisko, Major Kira, Archer, Tom Paris, Hoshi, the Borg, U.S.S. Enterprise, etc.?

Well, your time is coming, as Simon & Schuster, as part of its celebration of Star Trek's upcoming 50th anniversary, will bring back its popular Star Trek: Strange New Worlds fan fiction writing contest. The orignal Star Trek: Strange New Worlds was a yearly collection of Trek short stories published between 1998 and 2007, with the amateur writers' works chosen via an open submissions process. The new contest for 2016 will result in ten grand prize winners who will have their stories published in both print and eBook formats as part of an all-new official anthology from Simon & Schuster.

Additionally, the two first prize winners will receive a free self-publishing package from Archway Publishing.

A deadline of January 15, 2016 has been set for submissions by U.S. residents only, and the winners will be announced on March 31, 2016, with the winning stories selected by a panel (to be named in the near future). And, to make the 2016 Star Trek: Strange New Worlds a fully fan-created package, fans will soon be asked to submit their artwork for cover consideration. Visit Star Trek Books for additional details.

If everything works out, I'm going to see my kid/grandson in December, from just before xmas to just after new years. Kid and hubby don't have a car.

Does anybody live close enough to pick me up at the airport and drop me in Leesburg, then do the reverse a week or so later? For not much money?

Birthday!

Today's topic in a writing comm was:
Over the years we have all produced fic. Some of it has been rewarded with kudos and comments. There's not always a clear reason why some fics 'make it' into the readers acclaim or why. When public acclaim is taken into account: what are your best fics? Don't hesitate to post links.

I answered based only on top fics according to AO3 stats. I don't really pay much attention to ff.net. I post things there, then forget about them.

My other sister got pictures. :D

Looking at all the pictures makes me wish I'd been there. :/

What is the Wishlist?

The Wishlist is a multi-fandom Christmas fanfiction fest. It is something that started very small and simple several years ago. The premise was to write twenty-four ficlets in response to twenty-four prompts, posted between December 1st and 24th. Fandom gifts, if you will. Since then it's grown and changed a bit.

The community and the rules in detail can be found here.

I've signed up to be a writer again this year. If you want to give me a prompt, please leave a comment on this entry, including fandom, characters or pairings, prompt, and your username. If you don't have an lj account, leave an anonymous comment, but make sure to give me a name.

Rules
I accept the first six prompts I am given, regardless of who you are or if I know you. (I might write more, so if you want to prompt me, go ahead. No guarantees, though.) Fair warning: if I find your prompt in any way offensive, I will disregard it and delete the comment.

You give me a fandom, characters/pairing, and a prompt. If I don't know the fandom you're requesting, your prompt doesn't count. I write Battlestar Galactica (2003) and original fiction. If you want to prompt me with another fandom, please ask, so I can let you know if I'm in any way familiar with that fandom.

Your prompts should somewhat match what I usually write. It can be a quote, an idea, a specific situation, but the more you give me, the more I have to work with. Throwing Character X/Character Y, whatever at me is going to get you whatever.

I answer the prompts in the order my muse likes best and post them in my fic journal [livejournal.com profile] lucywritesfic/AO3 or in the [livejournal.com profile] wishlist_fic community, probably both, one a day, starting in December.

Again, I need fandom, characters or pairings, prompt, and your username

If you are the kind of person who shops on Amazon, particularly during the holiday season, I'd like to point you in the direction of my blog. If you start there and click through any of the Amazon links, I get a small (4%) percentage of any sales. I get a bi-weekly report of what's purchased, but not who is purchasing it, so your privacy is protected.

And, on the outside chance you are looking for books, movies, tv, music, or other oddities, I do have a few things listed in my shop. I'm happy to get anything out of my space and on to a new home.

Every little bit helps! Thank you!

=====

I'm friendly. If you want to friend me, feel free. Many of my posts are public. I don't always friend back automatically, but if you want me to, please send me a message, or comment on one of my posts, and I'll be happy to add you.

I sometimes talk a lot, and sometimes go weeks or months without posting to my own journal. I'm as active as possible on several BSG comms, and I participate in GYWO ([livejournal.com profile] getyourwordsout). This will be my third year. My BSG fic is posted to my fic journal, and everything gets posted to my AO3.
lanalucy: (curvy)
Do you have a favorite among the fics you've written? What makes it your favorite? Give us a link!

Hmm. I probably had the most fun writing Make Me a Match.

I really love some of my shorter works, including Like a Warm Sweater on a Cold Day or Combat Ribbons or Me on My Way to You.

But I like rereading most of my fic. When it's been a while, I get to read it from a distance, and it reminds me why I write - the feeling I get when I read good words.
lanalucy: (special)
What is your current project or projects?

Ha. Way too many to count - dozens of fics in some version of progress. I'd like to finish the second half of Some Assembly Required, though. That one's languished since I posted the first half.
lanalucy: (underwear model)
Have you ever collaborated with anyone else, whether writing together, or having an artist work on a piece about your fic?

Yes. I have collaborated on an as yet unfinished BSG fic with [livejournal.com profile] newnumbertwo, and I've done Round Robins with several BSG fic-writers for [livejournal.com profile] bsg_epics.

When it's at full strength, my beta village is a pretty collaborative place. We are in and out of each other's docs and we make comments and suggestions, which sometimes make it into that fic, and sometimes turn into prompts for something else. I've gotten some really fantastic prompts from random comments on a fic in progress.

For my Het Big Bang fic, Without a Net, I got art from [livejournal.com profile] lotrspnfangirl, and it was beautiful! I love the little section dividers, and the icons, and the header art of Kara and Lee. I understand now why writers love to get art for fics.
lanalucy: (wonder)
Where is your favorite place to write, and do you write by hand or on the computer?

I generally try to be comfortable to write. I have a very expensive office chair, which I purchased way back in the days of jobs and money, and it has held up well. I've gotten my money's worth out of this baby.

I have a card table set up in the living/dining area, and for now, that's where I write. Eventually, I'll get back in my room, but I'm currently reorganizing.

Mostly, I write on my laptop. My typing speed can almost keep up with my muse when I'm really in the zone. However, when I need some extra energy, I will go and sit in a restaurant and eat or have a snack, and write in a composition book, of which I have easily half a dozen, because I use them for many, many things, not just for longhand writing of fiction.
lanalucy: (Ryan and Tiger)
What is the oddest (or funniest) thing you've had to research for a fic?

I don't remember research anything truly odd. I've had to spend a great deal of time on battlestarwiki, but nothing really outrageous. Most of my fics involve something I've actually done or felt or see or heard, so personal experience is my main research tool. Except for smut. Though I've been somewhat adventurous, I've never been as adventurous as Kara, so I have a special sexpert for when I need to write something I've never experienced.
lanalucy: (once in a lifetime)
Music: Do you listen to music while you write? Do you make playlists to get into a certain "mood" to write your fic? Do you need noise in general? Or do you need it completely quiet?

No. No. No. Yes. :D

I cannot write while listening to anything with words or lyrics. It drowns out the voices in my head, and makes writing way too much work.
