I didn’t get as many finished as I would have liked, but I did a hell of a lot more than last year! Overall I am really happy with what I did get done. 2018 will be mostly about finishing some long stories and adding to some ongoing series. New long projects will be hopefully minimized if it doesn’t fit into a series I already have or fit into a challenge. I also wanna get some Tibbs fics done. I miss them. I just need to tweek some things to make Gibbs fit my current mindset.
My love for Tony DiNozzo continued strong, and I found a new pairing that I am completely in love with! Tony/Jack own my heart, and I plan to continue them in the new year with other partners for my favorite NCIS SFA to keep the spice in his life.
I hope everyone had a great year, and I look forward to seeing what wonderful fics 2018 brings us!

Overall I only came about 20K short of my goal. I would have liked for a lot more of them to be finished, but it is what it is. I’ll never be an author who beats themselves up over productivity. I don’t really write well when I try and force it. So, I am really happy with where I ended up. I still hope that 2018 sees more completed fics though.
Total Completed and WIP Word Count Combined: 430,271.
