Just to prove I'm crazy
Well I went and did it! (Am blaming blktauna for this one *g*)

I have now signed up for yuletide. So with the other ones I've signed up for, it means I might end up having to write a total of five such stories.

santa_pros - Written, just waiting to be beta'd

MFU - Written - just waiting to be beta'd

DS - About fifty percent written (probably)

ncis_tinsel - Assignments haven't been given out yet

yuletide - Assignments haven't been given out yet

Oh, and that doesn't include any challenges that I may or may not decide to answer, including two on my own rare_pair, one of which is a Christmas challenge. Nor does it include the fanfic100 stories.



Brave or mad???????? No, don't answer that one :-)))))

Brave or mad????????

As someone who is struggling with the first fic challenge she has ever attempted, and has sworn never to do another, I think I'd be inclined to say that you're....well, you can probably guess!

;-)
nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 3rd November 2005 13:02 (UTC) (Link)
:-) Hmm, I fear that you may be correct.

Are you still struggling? I'm sorry to hear this. Am sending unstruggling vibes your way.

You can do it. I know you can.

You are right you know. I was going through my 'stories in progress' folders the other day and was frightened by the sheer amount that I have started, but not finished. Started because I get the great idea and start writing, unfinished because I get another great idea and start writing that. Challenges indeed do focus the mind - there's nothing like a deadline to do that.

I think you're brave and I'm STILL looking forward to your santa_pros.

::Hugs:: Thank you m'dear. I'm looking forward to yours too - in fact to all of them, it should be fun and enjoyable.

You're wicked, you know ;-)

I am going to say you are brave.
I am still working on my DS one and the plot isn't exactly worked out ;-) (I love writing by the seat of my pants).
But to do all those yuletide/santa ones along with other challenges I admire you, becuase I know you can do it.
Hope you don't get too much finger cramp.
nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 3rd November 2005 14:01 (UTC) (Link)
Tis kind of you to say so.

I'm sure your DS one will work out well, just write and let the plot work itself out (that's what I do *g*).

Thank you for your faith in me!
gilda_elise From: gilda_elise Date: 3rd November 2005 14:17 (UTC) (Link)
Well, I've said it before but I'll say it again, I don't know how you do it. I've got two in the works and it's a struggle...and that's with one a story I'd already started (it's for a Birthday celebration and the stories can be about anything you want.) Challenges and me just don't get along. I did start working on one for Pros but the challenge is two months old! lol
nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 3rd November 2005 15:09 (UTC) (Link)
To be perfectly honest, Gilda, if it wasn't for the fact that I'm retired on medical grounds, I wouldn't be able to do it.

Challenges and I never used to get on, but for some reason this last year has been different.

*cough* Weeeelllll........ ;) As long as you have a Muse that cooperates, I say go for it!
nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 3rd November 2005 15:28 (UTC) (Link)
LOL - yes, that just about sums it up.

Muse is being very cooperative thus far, which is a tad worrying, I must say.

I shan't ;-)

I know how you feel as you know that I have 2 challenges, 1 Christmas and just entered one for a Pros group *cough* only 4 to write.

So shall I give you a deadline for an ordinary Pros story, to see if it works? *grin* Just kidding!


nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 3rd November 2005 16:04 (UTC) (Link)

You can do it!

You mean 'ordinary' outside of the 1st March deadline for the next SAM?

Brave or mad?

Both, undoubtedly.
nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 4th November 2005 11:37 (UTC) (Link)

Re: Brave or mad?

:-)

Thank you. Being both suits me quite nicely.
k1mono From: k1mono Date: 3rd November 2005 18:34 (UTC) (Link)
I am inclined to say both, but we all absolutely enjoy your writings and I must say how wonderful that you are prepared to share your marvellous imaginations with us all in the form of our preferred fandoms.

Its catching as I have

1 fic for rare-pair to do, not for a particular theme tho
1 fic NCIS tinsel santa
1 for Muncle santa

:)))

:-) This now fits my oft-time duel personality.

Well, thank you kindly, Ren. That is sweet of you to say.

Out of touch as usual

I'm curious about the fanfic 100 challenge I've seen mentioned -- is it something anybody can enter in any fandom? Or one person claims a particular fandom?

I've been a bit preoccupied the last couple of weeks so I've probably missed something basic!

nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 4th November 2005 11:46 (UTC) (Link)

Re: Out of touch as usual

People can 'claim' different things.

For example someone can claim:

Bodie/Doyle
or
Ray Doyle
or
The Professionals - general series

Then 100 fics have to be written, using the prompts given, around what you've claimed and been approved for. I think someone has B/D, but if someone claimed Ray Doyle (or Bodie or Cowley), 100 stories could still be written as long as they featured the person you had claimed.

For general series, it doesn't mean gen (as opposed to slash), just that you are writing more widely about the whole series, e.g Cowley, Murphy, Tommy, etc. etc. could appear in stories where Bodie & Doyle don't necessary appear. The Pros general series has also been claimed, but I don't think any single character has. There is a list over on the site. You have to claim and be approved before you can start posting.
probodie From: probodie Date: 3rd November 2005 22:58 (UTC) (Link)
Mad, you are, but I can understand it :-) I love challenges, although I really must get started on my SAM7 - but I havent a clue what to write about LOLLOL
nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 4th November 2005 11:48 (UTC) (Link)
:-) Thank you (I think mad is closer than brave, if I'm honest).

SAM7 ah yes. What can you write about? Okay, how about an established relationship story when an old flame from Bodie's past turns up and tries to come between them?

Or any other established relationship story.......

Well you said you liked challenges.

Both?

Don't worry. I have a tinsel to write too.

I'm currently working on a Pretender slash fic, with a very rair paring (Jarod/Angelo) so be prepared:D And... I still have to write Possessed!Jethro and Double!Ducky fics.
k1mono From: k1mono Date: 3rd November 2005 23:43 (UTC) (Link)
oh yes we are all waiting for the possessed Gibbs and Double Ducky
