Self-indulgence under the cut:
I remembered something about the show from watching it in the 80's: for some reason the 'barrow-boy' scene in Takeaway had stayed with me, as had some scenes from Involvement. But mostly it was a distant memory. Discovering it again was the most amazing, rapturous experience. I fell in love with the Lads again through the stories and life has never been quite the same since.
It was another 8 months before I started writing. I went to SinpOZium and was confronted by the prospect - but chickened out, big time :-)
Then I got an idea and...
Viking Drabble resulted.
Gotta thank tboy for the first prompt :-)
The rest of the year:
Good News Bad News
Sleeping on the Beach
One for summer_of_78 and
A neverending crossover with the Famous Five - which I've been working on, but which seems to grow more tentacles every day!
Me Do Crack!fic? Nah!
Drabble challenge (incomplete)
It was good to let go of my fear and show myself to the world. I learned a lot, met some very generous people (one in particular I will always remember). Went through some achingly bad months as well.
I want to keep writing. But I think I'm done with easy resolution, first-time stories. I want to be a better writer. I want to write Pros the way I first enjoyed them - dangerous, hard and not at all easy on the mind.
