So far my week has involved far too much moving books from one place to another. I’m hopeful of better things taking place starting today.
Really? Whatcha doing? :) My week is pretty busy so far. Monday was less busy surprisingly. Tuesday is killing it. D:
Right now I am trying to narrow down choices and weigh realities, re: an annual, multi fandom fan fic challenge called Yuletide Treasures.
I’m having a hard time deciding what to request and then what to offer. The latter is especially tricky as it involves asking myself questions like, “All right, is it really feasible that I can reread The Fionavar Tapestry in 4-6 weeks? And shouldn’t I at least skim it right now to refresh my memory?”
If that all sounds confusing, rest assured—it is.
It is fun, though, since when your assignment arrives it can nudge you a little bit out of your comfort zone. The last time I did it, I turned out a long, all-original fairy tale-type fantasy story.
I didn’t think The Musketeers would be available to request this year and so was pleasantly surprised to see that it was. So that’s one easy choice. I just need to settle on a couple of others now.
Still, it makes a nice change from rearranging my bedroom and moving books.
Oh I have heard about Yuletide, but I never participated. So you are going to write something for one fandom and receive a fic in return? Is this how it works? Oh and Fionavar books! It’s been awhile since I read those but they are quite lovely! :D
