2017 Writing Totals



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!

My WIPs are mostly either really long or under 2000 Words. lol Lots of different fandoms. Three of the really long ones are on my list of fics to finish in 2018.

WIP Word Count: 178,478


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.

  1. Your stories gave me many happy hours of enjoyment and I thank you! Congratulations on your achievements for 2017 and I wish you all kinds of success for 2018! I will admit to a certain amount of self-involved, self-interest in those wishes *runs away*.

    I think I saw some stories that I missed so I will use those to reward myself when I unpack a box (just moved). Tony and Jack are a special favorite of mine as well.

    All for you – Best wishes for a happy and creative new year!


  2. I think you did remarkably well !! You might not have hit your goal, but it was a huge one. You finished 24 stories! 24! Your word count is just amazing. Don’t be too hard on yourself, just start over for 2018. Thanks for all the hard work you do, and the lovely stories you post for us to enjoy!
