Day 9

Commit an Act of Kindness. In your own space, share what you’ve done, talk about what you’ve done, or simply leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

I can’t say I have done anything especially kind in the last days, only ordinary everyday acts of kindness. Like cooking dinner I know my son is partial too, or giving the dogs tummy rubs.

Day 10

Create a fanwork. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

I’m currently writing a fanfic gift for The Chocolate Box.

Day 11

In your own space, talk about your creative process(es) — anything from the initial inspiration to how you feel after something’s done. Do you struggle with motivation or is it a smooth process? Do you have any tricks up your sleeve to pull out when a fanwork isn’t cooperating? What is your level of planning to pantsing/winging it? Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

I’ve never been able to figure out what it is that triggers me into fanfic. There are lots of things I love, but I never feel the need to write about it. Like Sense8, for example. Or I may write for a fandom, but feel no need to write about some character despite loving them. Most of the fandoms I write in take place/can take place in historical times, and a lot of them have fantastical/SF elements, but not everything I read and watch which fit into that description makes me want to write.

Inspiration can come for pretty much anything. A certain character, or interaction, or scene, but also a picture or a song which somehow gets attached to a fandom and gives me ideas. I usually map out the whole story in my head before I start writing it. Sometimes I write out a synopsis; mostly when I write something with several parts. But I also add and subtract as I write, and sometimes a fic stall because the scene I had envisioned doesn’t work, and I need to come up with something which flows better.

I never write on only one fic at any given time. I’m like that with all my creative processes- I always sew on at least three different things at once. I’ve tried to just work on one thing until it is finished, but the only thing which happens is that I get bores and completely stops doing anything. It works much better for me to switch between projects whenever I feel the need. At some point, however, one of them reach a state where I only want to work on it until it is finished.
