Sooo. This thing.
I have a handful (maybe a dozen?) short fics left to repost. Unfortunately, many aren't all that good, and I'm not sure how many I actually want to salvage. I'm also debating whether I'd like to move some fics from the Vole-Pit over here; I did move one, but there are plenty more in the under-10k category.
I wasn't totally sure at first what I wanted to do with this. I have two DW journals now, this one and liri
. The latter holds the archive of my entire primary LJ going back to... 2003? It kind of makes sense for that to be the continuation of the "lirillith" LJ and this to be the continuation of my writing journal. At one point, I considered making this a more general fandom journal, but a lot of the folks who followed my main journal liked it when I wrote about stuff like the anime I was watching.
My discomfort about LJ wasn't just "I don't know if these folks deserve my money." There was also some social anxiety involved; I was not about to put fanfic, or even just talking-about-fanfic, where my husband and our housemate could easily find and read it. I didn't want to shut real-life friends and acquaintances out of all
of my online stuff, but I did want to have a space where I could post and not feel too constrained about "oh no people who live in my house can read this." Just turning my writing journal into a not-just-writing journal wasn't ideal, because of the whole not-giving-LJ-money element constricting my icon choices.
Making this a writing-only journal isn't necessarily a great option either, though. I have a few fics I'm working on, but I really miss things like 15minuteficlets and drabble communities. I've found a few writing-prompt comms on DW, but they seem to mostly have original fic, even if the comm info indicates fanfic is also welcome. I'd feel a little uncomfortable busting in with the first fanfic posted in the comm. I feel like I shouldn't swipe prompts from prompt communities on LJ if I'm not going to post the fic there; and since I want to get the hell out of Dodge, I won't be posting things to LJ communities. I'm pretty sure my OpenID will not let me make community postings. I could really use something to spur me to write, though.
But that's the state of things at the moment. Fanfic here; posting about day-to-day stuff, anime I've viewed, things I've read, games I'm playing (Suikoden V!) over at liri
