Year End Review Time

Time for the "Fic What Dusty Wrote Last Year" post!

I don't always do one of these, but I'm trying to figure out what I wrote, since it seems like the only thing I wrote all year was Xandercles.  I know that can't be right, so I'm going to sort it out in a post.  Make it official and all that.

ETA: okay, I just added them all together, and I wrote over 188,000 words in 2012.  Day-um.  82k of that is Xandercles alone, and Lost Souls (Oz Big Bang) accounts for another 59k.  Add in Monstrous, which was 21k, and that leaves 26,000 words to divide up into 16 stories.  That averages out to about 1600 words a story, and since many of them were ficlets of under 1k, a couple of longer fic obviously carried the extra wordage... 

I have to credit tamingthemuse for most of this - only four of these stories do not have TtM prompts attached, and I'm pretty damn sure I used some during Oz Big Bang, even if they didn't make it to the notes.  Writing at least 500 words a week for the prompt they supplied helped keep me on target.  So if anyone needs to light a fire under their muse, I recommend it.

Of course, the actual ideas that got the stories moving were usually prompted by ozsaur, with occasional brilliance from my other cohort in crime, trillingstar.  Those two are definitely my heroes and shit.  They've both been super supportive this year.  I'm a lucky person to have them as friends.

So, I guess I have a goal to aim for beat this year, then, huh?  *g*  Maybe I'll aim at 200k for this year's total.

Anyway, here we go!
