My WIP folder is still bulging with stories, and a lack of time and focus made going through them all a non-starter. I'd still like to do it, but I'm not making it a priority at this point.
I'm going to do Trope Bingo again this year, so look for my card to go up, probably sometime mid-January. I'm going to do a self-generated one, with all of my favorite tropes, so maybe I'll finish more than just one line. It's an amnesty round, so technically I have until the end of June to finish. Blackout anyone? Knowing me, it won't happen, but that's a goal, at least.
I don't know if I'll post for Evil Author Day, but chances are good. I'm sure I've got a couple more story fragments hanging around that I can post. I find that it's a good way to spark renewed interest in finishing something, so there's also that incentive. We'll see.
I talked about this in my year-end post, but I'm also going to leave my comments here as well. I got a comment on one of my stories asking why I stick to bingos. The commenter pointed out that I'm limiting my potential by just writing to prompts from the bingo instead of branching out on my own. To that person (and anyone else brave enough to ask that question) I say this: I'm the only person that gets to decide what I write. I use the bingo to clear out my WIP folder, to spark new ideas, and to challenge myself because there have been times when I've been, for lack of a better word, lazy about writing. I work best under pressure, so having a deadline to work towards is always helpful. In addition, all my stories lately seem to have evolved into these 10k+ word epics, so the challenge of a bingo is to write shorter vignettes that I can write, edit and post quickly. In addition, it allows me to write to prompts that I wouldn't have considered otherwise. Rest assured that it's not stunting my growth as a writer, nor limiting my potential. /rant
I'm going to do the Rough Trade April challenge this year, and I'll probably sign up for Nano at Rough Trade again this fall, so keep your eyes peeled for updates on those two challenges. I don't plan to do a Big Bang again unless I find an idea or a challenge that I just can't pass up on. The reasons for that are my own, but if you're curious, just ask. That doesn't mean I won't be posting, I just may not post very regularly. Life gets in the way sometimes. Sigh.
