I am trying to catch up on a lot of fanfic pursuits while enduring graduate school. I've been writing fanfic for far too long (or so it sometimes seems - I started in high school; you do the math). I look back at some of my earlier stuff and cringe...
I recently removed several of my old fics. Most of them were bad. I still think a lot of the earlier stuff I've left up is bad, but those fics are either awaiting completion or I think they can be revised without starting entirely from scratch. I hope I'm right, and that I get the time to fix those old fics. If not, then by leaving them up, I am at least reminded of the fact that I am continually growing as a writer and learning from earlier mistakes. And I will be honest - if I learn one of my fics has been sporked somewhere, I'll not be surprised.
I have an LJ now - that's my profile link. I'll probably use it for fandom-related stuff. If anyone is interested in the normal boring goings-on of my life...Feel free to friend me on LJ - just note that it applies to ALL of my fandoms, even ones I don't necessarily write for, and also, real life does sometimes intrude. But only sometimes. ;) Original writing also pops up, not all of which ends of on my FictionPress profile.

I used to say I wouldn't abandon fics once started. I've since learned something - there are fics I still think are salvageable: Irreparable Damage (H/D) & Vampire (HP). I genuinely want to complete them. But they need major revision before I can continue writing them - Vampire should be made more complaint with the HP series, especially now that all 7 books are out. Irreparable Damage underwent some major changes and I need to map the new plot out.
The unfinished HP works I pulled? I have no interest in completing them. I was going to finish them out of sheer stubbornness, except that if I'd done that, the fics would've suffered as a result. I apologize to all who enjoyed them, but I can no longer continue working on them. As such, Nightmaring the Dream, Preserving the Present, and After have been pulled.
