    It's New Years Eve and no one has started this yet!! So, time to offically write down what you intend to accomplish this year in fan fic :)

    I'm hoping to get any kind of fanfic done. :p Especially Dear Diary Challenge.
    And maybe actually start a fanfic in which there is no Kyp Durron. [face_blush]

    Fanfic wise [face_thinking]

    1. I will finish 'Betrayal'. :eek: I will. I swear I will! What, you don't believe me?! [face_blush] [face_whistling]

    2. I will finish 'For the love of a son'. Yes, I know I've let it languish far too long but I want it done.

    I have another one that I can't post here but I want to finish that one as well. Then on to all those plot bunnies languishing on my computer.

    1. Blue Side. I swear I'm going to finish that story this year- really! And hopefully I'll finish its prequel, too, though I just started that one. But I want to be diligent about updating it, at the very least.

    2. I'm going to write stories that don't involve Knights of the Old Republic. Really truly. :p

    3. No more four-month posting gaps for me. :) This should be easier to accomplish now that I'm not in school anymore, but we'll see what happens when I get a permanent job and have to relocate. Still, I want to keep on top of things.

    I think that about does it. Here's to keeping our fanfic resolutions! :D

    ooh! Just what I needed.

    -Finish "To Overcome". It's just ridiculous how long I've been working on that thing.

    -Ditto "Measure of a Man".

    -Write a chapter story that I actually finish in less than a year's time.

    -ETA: Finish working on "Thin Veil" for TF.N archive

    Yay! Love all the resolutions and let's hope I can keep mine! :D

    Ah, so it's that time of year again when we lie like a rug. :p

    1. I will complete my entry in the Dear Diary Challenge.
    2. I will finish - or at least, keep alive at least one of my WIPs.
    3. I will stop suffering and write that symphony.

    Happy 2008, folks!

    I want to:
    - Complete the 'Dear Diary 2008' challenge
    - Finish the sequel to one of my stories, and actually start posting it
    - Post in the 'Before' board
    - Finish 'Dark Child'

    Of course, these are more like hopes and dreams then they are resolutions. I'm in the process of finishing one original story, and starting another, so I'll be lucky to get anything but the Dear Diary challenge completed!

    I want to finish my Mary Jane Skyler epic eventually. I have most of it in my noggin, so the planning is easy. Translating all of that to paper then to type is another matter. I have Volume 1 done and working on 2. But...there is another!

    I would like to involve Mara in an early scene with Vader. No plot bunnies have come to visit on that one yet. (expecting for someone to say Wait til Easter.....*crickets chirping*)

    Basically, I want to write more Emperor's Hand era Mara.

    Would like to try my dry sense of humor in a fic again. I have one loose plot bunny where a Coruscant news reporter is reporting the riot after Palpatine's death in ROTJ. He interviews a certain woman with red-gold hair who is in distress!

    Would like to lose more weight by eating less, sorry...wrong list.

    Fan fic, eh?

    1. To finish my two WIP fics. I say this because normally I like to wait until I'm totally finished with something before I post any of it, because Darth Lack of Motivation has killed a couple of my WIPs in the past. [face_blush] That doesn't sit very well with readers, normally. :p

    2. To finally write something substantial in Beyond, rather than sticking solely to Before with the occasional Saga fic.

    3. To wreak more havoc than ever before. [face_devil]

    4. To finally do the crossover I was meant to do. *grin*

    5. To wreak more havoc than ever before. [face_devil] Yes, I said that one already - I just have a lot of havoc to unleash yet. ;)

    Um, that's about it as far as fan fic goes. Hopefully I can get that done.
