Elegy for Númenor received First Place in Genres: Longer Works: Incomplete
Ossë's Gift received Third Place in Genres: Adventure: Elvish Lands
Wow! I really didn't think I'd get anything at all. Thank you very kindly to my reviewers (and you know who you are) who wrote glowing and often lengthy reviews for the three fics nominated. I know how much work a good review entails.
I'm quite touched. (But you knew that already.) I guess this means I should continue writing Elegy?
Reflections on my writing in 2009
Elegy for Numenor: 39,647
Lord John fic: 11,567
Wraeththu fic: 25,975
2 drabbles: 350
Here is where I ritualistically self-flagellate for not getting much writing done and vow to do better this year. I have the best intentions as well as lots of good excuses. However, although the word count is low, I'm pleased with what I did write and one of these fics is actually going to be published. I've also nearly completed editing my novel and that's going well. So, yes, I do plan to be more disciplined and try for 1,000 words a day, but no, I'm not going to be too hard on myself. Life is too short.
