Day 22 – Have you ever participated in a fest or a Big Bang? If so, write about your favourite experience in relation to one. If not, are there any you've thought about doing? And if not, why not?

Assuming 'fest' here is being used in relation to ficathons, then yes, many times. I've even organised and run them. I enjoy them very much - but only the non-anonymous ones. I did one year do three anonymous ones and hated every minute of it and so will never do them again.

I have also taken part in one Big Bang (NCIS).

My favourite experience? That's a bit of an odd question to my mind. But I'll go with the NCIS Big Bang. It was completing my story My Son's Boyfriend (Gibbs/Ducky).

It was a story I had started (i.e. I'd written a couple of paragraphs) and had the idea for for quite some time, but had kept putting it off as I knew it would be novella length. Thus, when the Big Bang came around and I signed up and submitted my outline, I was 'duty bound' to complete it and I did. It was good to have the focus of knowing I had to write the story in the time scale and thus had to focus on it rather than toddling off and writing other things.
