Author has written 5 stories for StarTrek: The Original Series, Doctor Who, and StarTrek: Other.
Okay, it has been too long since I've last been able to post stories with any kind of regularity. I've received a number of warm reviews both here and elsewhere, and I cannot thank you enough. If it wasn't for you, it'd be even harder to gather the courage to come back here and try to resume my stories. My warm thanks, hugs, and virtual cookies for you!
I have been writing. I've found out that the best way to keep sane is to write. And I've written a lot. The problem is that very little of what I've written is ready for posting. Quite a lot of it are no more than snippets and notes and plot points for future stories. I'm not kidding when I say I have dozens of ideas for stories, both fanfiction and original. But writing good fiction is hard. Perhaps I'm too demanding, perhaps I give too much attention to my inner critic. But I do need time, and effort, to polish a story to the point that I'm comfortable enough to post it. And the fact is that my last attempts fell far short than my goals. Besides, I have a Real Life with work, family and projects that also demand my attention. If I'm not happy with my stories, it's doubly hard to set aside the time to fix them.
I've finished Beginnings, yes. But I'm not happy with the ending. I keep thinking it needs a bit of a rewrite, and a coda. I'll probably go back to it, but not soon. It's meant to tie in, much later, with subsequent stories in the TBG universe, if I ever get to write them. Let's see.
Investigation, the current episode in my The Enterprise and the Doctor series, is way overdue. There should be only three more chapters, but I'm still unhappy with my writing. Well, I'll keep trying. There should be two more episodes, and a few short interludes, before the first arc of the series is complete. I'm trying to focus on it now. It's a very exciting story for me, and I hope you'll like it.
Reality Clashes. Now it's been growing in my mind and stealing mindspace from the other stories. There's so much to tell... It's a universe setting for Doctor Who stories, mostly compatible to canon (I'm not acquainted enough to the whole of DW story to be fully certain that I'm not breaking canon somewhere. OTOH canon in DW is a fuzzy concept at best so I'm not worried). I have the two introductory stories outlined, the first and second story of the first arc written, and three other stories undergoing writing. The problem is that I do feel I have to post the introductory stories before the main arc stories can be posted. And they're fun, but not nearly as fun as the rest. So I'll probably post some standalone stories first, to try to get myself convinced that it's worth it. It's quite a lot of work, a major project, and I'll need some betas... Any volunteers?
The three standalone stories that I'm posting (or thinking of posting) are Carnival in Rio (ongoing), The Doctor's Name (and no, as far as I see it, it doesn't conflict with World Enough and Time), and Murder at Dawn (which will be a crossover).
Now, the edited content of my previous profile:
My first stories are finally here! Starting on September 11th, 2015 I'll be posting my stories (almost) every Friday. I have many stories to tell, both original and fanfiction, but the first ones will belong to one of the two collections listed below.
Writing fanfiction is for me a learning exercise in writing fiction. I'm writing in a wide range of formats, from short stories to long novellas, while trying a number of different approaches. I do have a number of original stories, still cooking, which I'll release once they are mature enough.
I'm very interested on the following fandoms, where I write most of my fanfictions, but I may add others later. Mostly, I'm a fan of the Doctor, though.
I'm currently working on stories in the following universes:
Disclaimer: I don't own Star Trek (as far as I know it belongs to Paramount) nor Doctor Who (it's BBC's). I just took them out for a ride...
Thanks to my brilliant beta, Ersatz Einstein, my Star Trek stories are finally shaping up without too much language weirdness.
Thanks to the invaluable help from Basmathgirl, who's betaing my Doctor stories, my Reality Clashes series are finally arriving!
