Day 1, 2, 3, 4+5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14+15, 16+17, 18, 19, 20, 21

22 – Have you ever participated in a fest or a Big Bang? If so, write about your favorite experience in relation to one. If not, are there any you've thought about doing? And if not, why not?

Until I fell in love, or at least obsession, with Legend of the Seeker and got an LJ account, I didn't even know what fests and Big Bangs were. Since then, of course, I've signed up for every one I can find and feel I have a reasonable chance of completing - the Feelings Fest on [livejournal.com profile] lots_femslash, the [livejournal.com profile] seekerrarepair exchange, the Reverse Mini Bang on [livejournal.com profile] lotseekerfic, [livejournal.com profile] dark_fest, and at least one mini big bang alt on [livejournal.com profile] legendland. My favorite experience...probably a tie between
The Unravelling or the Perils of Powerful Magic
, for [livejournal.com profile] legendland, which was just plain fun to write, and most recently Hope, for the [livejournal.com profile] lotseekerfic Reverse Mini Bang, which was intense, but which gave me things to think about that I'm still trying to fully process.

In some ways, having a prompt and a deadline like that can be such a blessing, because it helps motivate me to actually finish. And at least one of my [livejournal.com profile] dark_fest stories I wrote after a mini dry spell, the first thing I'd felt really positive about in what felt like forever. (I started typing and literally didn't stop until I finished - it was emotional.)

Also, I enjoy things like that because they help me feel part of a larger community, and overcome my shyness about posting things I'm not quite sure about. (The downside being when I sign up for too many projects at once, of course.)
