I admit it, I'm a fan fic junkie! Yes, I've got about 7 or 8 stories going right now, and on all three boards. But it seems that I'm helpless against a plot bunny's wiles. I write vignettes when the mood strikes, or the plot bunny attacks, whatever. While I do write SOMETHING every day, I won't post it until I feel I've made it as good as I can. I won't post something just to say I've posted. I won't update a story until I feel the post is ready, even if it means a slight delay. I try to update all my stories at least twice a month, and there are many I'm pretty good at updating once a week most of the time. As for the writing suffering, I guess my readers would be the ones to know. I don't like arbitrary deadlines or requirements, and I think that writing suffers for it if we impose ridiculous constraints on ourselves. Then we're just churning it out like an assembly line. That's manufacturing, not art. But that's just my view of it. I know all of my work isn't great, but I can honestly say I've given it my best effort at the time. And I'd rather not post at all than to post something I felt I gave less than my best effort.
