An update on Fannish New Year Resolutions (2007)

With a mere four months left until the end of the year, I thought I would take the opportunity to see how far I had got/not got on my 2007 Fannish New Year Resolutions

1. To finish the Fanfic Challenges I have taken up.

2. To write some longer Gibbs/Ducky stories.

This I have achieved. Not as many I would like to have done, but I have several longer stories in the works.

The Common Factor is over 13,000 words
Learning To Trust (which will appear in the NCIS Gibbs/Ducky zine that periwinkle27 is producing) is over 37,000 words.

3. To take part in more ncis_flashfic challenges.

Collapse )

4. To write in fandoms other than NCIS.

Collapse )

5. To install Paint Shop Pro on my computer - and teach myself to use it.

Well, I have installed it . . .

6. To get the non-fiction part of my website updated and remove the 'This Page Is Under Construction' message.

Amongst other things I aim to have an episode guide for each fandom (with short descriptions of each episode) and character studies.

I haven't done as much of this as I'd intended. So this is still on on-going project.

7. To go through my zine collection and decide what I really am not going to re-read.

Five filing cabinet drawers full of zines, plus a shelf of digest seems a tad too much - especially as I know there are some I'm not going to re-read.

I haven't even begun to do this one *sigh*

Overall, I don't think I've done too badly on my 'resolutions'. I'm quite pleased with what I've achieved, thus far, especially insofar as nos. Three ('To take part in more ncis_flashfic challenges') and Four ('To write in fandoms other than NCIS').

So with four months to go, I'm reasonable content.
