GYWO Genre Bingo Card #1

New Year, new GYWO Bingo card.

I'm going with genres this first round! I found this really helpful to get my word count up last year.

They only need to be 500 words each and because it's not for a fest, I didn't feel loads of pressure about posting if I didn't like the end result (if i wanted i could bury it here and not cross-post to AO3 if i didn't feel it was worth it.

So i feel i've got a nice mix this round. Wonder which I'll do first? Any votes? Rambles? Prompts?






For my own reference, this is the GYWO list of definitions.

Apology to Fandom and Mods

I'd just like to say a quick sorry to mods and my fandom friends for really not being around this summer. It also means that I disappeared on a few fests and just did not contact mods that I should have contacted.

While it's true for the last few weeks I've been working and busy, it's really not the reason i haven't been around properly.

Honestly? I've just stopped writing. Not just for fandom but overall. I think going to uni last year and half my course being creative writing just ruined the pleasure and joy of it for me. They tried to bang so many rules into us that just don't suit my style of writing. I didn't take the course to get published. I'm not concerned about making my writing more sellable.

I write for my own pleasure and i took the course (I'm actually a film student really) as more of a self-improvement thing, a personal development poject because I knew i'd have to do things i hate (like sharing my ideas and reading aloud for example). I think that part worked.

But I also just started hated writing.

I've sort of half dropped that side of the course. I'm only taking it as a minor and 2 of my 3 modules for the next 2 years are in script writing, so i'm really hoping i can get back into fandom. It's not that I've lost enthusiasm, it's that I just started hating writing. It became a chore. And that's not what i want my hobby to be.

So, I'd really like to apologise to any mods i've put in a tight spot or any of my fandom friends i talk to a lot who feel i've gone missing on them.

A special apology also goes out to [livejournal.com profile] salem_dark_wolf for leaving her in the lurch with her ACBB betaing. I am getting there and I WILL get through it. (I'll message you in a sec too).

I think that's all I wanted to say. I pop into the chatzy chats every now and then but haven't been staying cos im not being productive in them. I miss you guys. I really do. I'll be trying to get back on the horse shortly.

Raven
xx

New GYWO Bing Card :D

YES!!! So, I finally full bingo'd my last card, which was based on 'character traits'. I've decided to pick a slightly different theme this time. I asked for a 'settings' card and my some of these pics are inspiring!

Yep, you read that right, pictures! Here is my full, beautiful card!

Word Count: 877
Rating: T
Warnings: Bit of blood, well ok technically Harry is really injured but, this is meant to be light-hearted and it was for circumstance, not ‘OMG Harry’s dying’.
Prompt: For my ‘Polite’ tile on GYWO Bingo.

Summary: Harry needs help late one night after a disastrous auror mission. Malfoy lives nearby, and Harry can’t think of a logical reason he shouldn't ask for help.

Word Count: 1676
Rating: G
Warnings: None
Prompt: For my ‘Aggressive’ tile on GYWO Bingo.
Author’s Notes: So this is the scene ‘aggressive’ brought to mind, except it didn’t turn out very aggressive...errr. It just didn’t fit when I was writing it. As it was inspired in the spirit I’d say it still counts as my bingo fill. It's no masterpiece but I'm relatively happy with it.
Summary: One last fare, Gwen tells Merlin early in the morning while he’s out on the streets, driving the taxi. It would turn out to be Arthur sodding Pendragon, school bully extraordinaire.
