It has been a while. I haven't been writing much, personal stuff galore for the past few years that just haven't kept me in a writing mood. That's changed recently so here we are. I will not be posting the completed work here at my fic journal because admittedly I always forget so AO3 or FF.net are your reading options for this one. I've posted through parts 5 as of last night and it is complete in 44 parts. I assure you the warnings I use are not indicative that this fic is sad or dark, I'm being courteous in using them. It is a HEA.
TITLE: A Solitary Man
AUTHOR: Susan / apckrfan( Collapse )
I have 5-6 Breakfast Club fics I’d like to start working on again and finish them up. The problem is it’s been so long since I’ve worked on them that I’m sort of floundering on what to do / where to go next.
So if anyone would be interested in helping me out, that’d be fabulous. They’re all on my website: www.phantomroses.com/apckrfan/fanfic in The Breakfast Club section.
I’m not in any hurry or anything, they’re just fics I’d like to finish. You can PM me or reply to this post if you’re interested.
So, I’d done some brainstorming recently to try to get myself back into focusing on my original works.( Collapse )
It’s been quite some time since I updated.
I’ve had some personal issues going on so my writing has progressed at a snail’s pace the past few years. I’m not going to go into detail, but things are on an upswing and I’m thrilled about that.
Recently, my external drive crashed and all of my work that I hadn’t already converted to HTML and uploaded to my website has been lost. Figuring out where to go from there hasn’t been easy.
I have decided, however, to take the crashing of my external drive as my “sign” that I need to start pursuing my endeavor to get my original works published again. I haven’t worked on my original stories in a very long time due to a multitude of reasons. I do feel I’m in the right place all around to start focusing on that again. I’m actually pretty excited, especially now that I have the idea of taking my completed manuscript I wrote after my son’s death 18 years ago and rewriting it. Same plot, characters, and setting but I’m going to write it now instead of go back and edit what I wrote then. My writing has changed since then (I like to think for the better), so I think this will be a better option to getting my son’s story out there finally. My membership to Romance Writers of America has always remained current, but I let my local chapter membership lapse because there just wasn’t much point in belonging if I couldn’t get to the meetings. I’ve re-upped my membership to it and hope to start going to the meetings beginning in May.
What that means for my fan fiction. I doubt I’ll stop writing fanfic altogether, but for the time being I’m going to work on the following multi-chapter WIP’s (listed under the cut):

Once these fics are completed I don’t anticipate writing the longer, multi-chapter fics any longer.

If some of you decide to leave this journal as a result of this update, I completely understand. I hope one day, though, to use it to announce bigger and better things.
To all of you who have stood by me and read my work the past nineteen years or so, I appreciate you.

I will have a new (complete) The Breakfast Club fic to post for this round of smallfandombang, which is what I spent what time I had to write the past few months working on since it had a due date.
Mostly what I have open right now is The Breakfast Club stuff with a couple of Adventures in Babysitting fics thrown into the mix. I also have a couple older pieces (Heroes and a BtVS/Slither/Heroes) that I plan on working again too, soon.
I've been hugely derelict at posting here when I do update so my website is the best place to find updates as I only post completed works at my fic journal.
Hope everyone had a good Easter and is having a blessed spring.
