This year I wrote and posted:
37,276 words, in eight stories total, in three (although 2 are related) different fandoms.

Overall Thoughts:
I can do better quality work, honest! I wrote a lot, but not as much as I wanted to. I still have a million half-finished stories, although two of the stories here represent ones that were started more than two years ago that I finally finished including my Big Bang one.

Looking back, did you write more fic than you thought you would this year, less, or about what you'd predicted?
I wrote more than I expected in total word count, but that's because I didn't count on Sherlock appearing or to be dragged into ACD because of it. I'm glad I finished my Big Bang finally. I didn't write for Yuletide or XF Santa, both things I wanted to do, but I was overwhelmed by Holmestice.

What pairing/genre/fandom did you write that you would never have predicted in January?
Sherlock (BBC) and/or Sherlock Holmes - Doyle.

What's your own favorite story of the year? Not the most popular, but the one that makes you happiest?
"The Ghosts of Christmases Past". It flowed the best, was easy to write, makes me smile, I'm happiest with how it turned out and so pleased that it was well received by the person I wrote it for.

Did you take any writing risks this year? What did you learn from them?
Does Helping_Haiti count? I still owe Amal that story. SHIT!

From my past year of writing, what was....

My best story of this year:
I'm not sure. I have mixed feelings on a lot of my stuff. I really liked "Within; Without" though.

My most popular story of this year:
"The Five Times..."

Story of mine most under-appreciated by the universe, in my opinion:
Was my "Studies" one really that bad? I mean, I don't mind if it was, but really?

Most fun story to write:
"How Do You Solve..." I wrote it quickly and giggled while I did it.

Story with the single sexiest moment:
"Studies" - I didn't really have much in the way of "sexiness" this year. Holmes and Watson made out in Studies. Mulder & Scully had an angst bonding moment in "Within; Without". Am I really a Gen writer? Ew.

Most "Holy crap, that's wrong, even for you" story:
One of these days I'll do this. Maybe as an Anon on a kinkmeme.

Story that shifted my own perceptions of the characters:
"Variations" I'm a Mulder/Scully 'shipper for sure and think those two are Meant To Be, but writing that story was like playing with my toys for the very last time. It was bittersweet and I looked at them through a different lens because of that story. It was like I was saying, "thanks for the memories, you two." If that makes any sense.

Hardest story to write:
"Vampire" Ok, I was WAY TOO AMBITIOUS with that story and it's a piece of crap. I feel HORRIBLE saying this since it was a gift, but it's shit. It really is a shitty story. Part of its problem is the ambitiousness of the story. It needs to be at least twice as long or cut in half. Either a strange sort of vignette around a vampire story or an actual real casefile with twists and turns and plot. It falls halfway inbetween and fails at both. One of these days I'll dust it off and try again.

Biggest Disappointment:
"Vampire" for all the reasons described above. I really didn't like "Variations" when I was done with it either. It needs more work.

Biggest Surprise:
Stumbling into Sherlock and Doyle. I've read the Sherlock Holmes stories numerous times and enjoy them, but it was the BBC series that dragged me into the fandom and fanfic. I like Doyle's characters better, but adore Sherlock. Via The Grand Moff and Crew I've also started in with Dr. Who although I'm not too sure if I'll read fic or not.

Most Unintentionally Telling Story

Fic-writing goals for 2011:
I've got some Sherlock Holmes stuff sitting around...
