On the one hand, I really want to take part in some writing challenges. I thought pretty hard (okay, not really) about doing the 52 short stories in 52 weeks one
but then I looked at the prompts and I realized I couldn't write those prompts. Well, alright, the whole point of a writing challenge is to just write
. And to have something to write about. But the thing is that I already have fic ideas that I really want to work on and I kind of hated the idea of spending time writing other stuff when I should probably use that time to actually write out the stories I've been wanting to for at least a year. And yet, those stories won't come. Why.
Okay, I think maybe what I'll try to do is this: one short story per month. Any length, even just a 100-word snippet. Maybe even just a small scene or a couple of lines from one of the story ideas I have. Anything
. As long as I write something. Because I do think the only way I'll get better at writing is if I keep practicing. So, that's gonna be my writing/fandon goal this year. Write something every month.
...and it's already almost the end of the first month. *SIGH*
