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.)


23 – When you post, where do you post to? Just your journal? Just an archive? Your own personal site?

24 – Betaing – How many betas do you like to use to make sure there aren't any major flaws in your fic? Do you have a Beta horror story or dream story?

25 – Music – Do you listen to music while you write? Do you make playlists to get into a certain "mood" to write your fic? Do you need noise in general? Or do you need it completely quiet?

26 – What is the oddest (or funnest) thing you've had to research for a fic?

27 – Where is your favorite place to write, and do you write by hand or on the computer?

28 – Have you ever collaborated with anyone else, whether writing together, or having an artist work on a piece about your fic?

29 – What is your current project or projects?

30 – Do you have a favorite fic you've written? What makes it your favorite? And don't forget to give us a link!

That's an impressive number of fests :D

I didn't quite realize how many it was until I started with this list :)

It's odd, though - some of my favorite of my stories are ones I wrote for such a fest, and yet so are some of the stories I like the least. Prompts can have some strange effects, I guess.
