Snowflake Challenge #4 - Goals

In your own space, set some goals for the coming year. They can be fannish or not, public or private.

I'm not really a goal-setter or keen on resolutions. Collapse )

All that exhaustively said, here's a couple of low-key, chill things that it would be nice to work on in 2020.

  • Kick something out for Psychic Wolves for Lupercalia. It's such a fun challenge and I don't think I've managed to get anything out of WIP and finished into the collection before.

  • In general I'd like to follow through more on writing down the fic I come up with in my head, whether it ends up as drawerfic or on AO3.

  • I'd really like to produce more fanworks as a matter of course. I particularly miss making podfic more regularly; there are artificial barriers I need to knock out to make decent recordings, so that would be a target. I'm hoping too that I'll catch up with my podfic friends at Bitchin' Party this April to do more collaborative podfic -- I *loved* doing that.

  • I'd like to return to a frequent habit of journaling, both on DW and in my hardcopy notebooks. It would be a good practice to get back into.

  • Recently I realized that a majority of the events I've been looking up were musical -- concerts, performances. I want to see more live music, make something of an effort to go out and experience it, if I can hack my body into letting me. I feel so energized after a concert, and that's a feeling I'd like to have more often.

  • I'd like to continue my longstanding project of uploading the fic I've written over the last decade to AO3. It's been slow going, only a handful have made it, but it would be so nice to have everything in one place.

That's pretty good. Just the right level of intentional but not excessively aspirational.

Snowflake Challenge #5 - Goals

Comment to someone you haven't ever interacted with before or introduce yourself to someone you've briefly interacted with and friend/follow them.

Oh boy, I've been friending and following like crazy thus far into January. One of the things about the fandom diaspora that drives me nuts is that people will have different handles across different platforms, which makes it challenging to know who is who, and whether I want to follow them.

I say this with my handle is the same across all platforms, but I don't mean it in a judgey way. Just a -- my brain struggles to connect several variations on an identity with one another.

So all this posting and linking in [community profile] snowflake_challenge has given me a super useful tool to run into people here that I haven't really followed since the LJ days. Most excellent.
