YULETIIIIIIIDE!

I managed not to bug you guys TOO much with my blathering about yuletide over here. Consider yourself lucky. Sorry Twitter followers! Don't blame you if you unfollowed!

I think my 2010 experience might be summed up with these two meme-style icons I made for a silly entry on the yuletide comm a few weeks ago:

and


(Get the joke on the lion one, get it, get it? durr hurr hurr)

So I'll just dump some statistics on you, ishie-style:

No. of stories written so far: 8 (between assignment, 2 pinch hits and treats)
No. of words written: 12,700-ish
No. of words needing to be written using Write or Die + a buddy: 10,000+
No. of separate betas used: 13 (including hubby and daughter, honestly!)
No. of fics beta'd for others: 12
No. of gifts received: 1 - from a pinch hitter! THANK YOU.
No. of squee posts on Twitter: uncountable: I may be the most frequent user of the #yuletide hashtag
No. of people I bugged on IM, Twitter and LJ to write with me: 10+
No. of sources I had to review seriously: 2
No. of sources I should have reviewed seriously: 6
No. of family members outright ignored in the making of this Yuletide: 2 (poor family!)

Most ridiculous but fun procrastination: making icons, lurking constantly in yulechat
Most annoying procrastination: isn't there laundry I could be doing?

Best soundtrack for writing: hubby's 80s Genius mix from his computer
Worst soundtrack for writing: two meowing cats (whom I also ignored dreadfully)

I will probably write more treats before the 24th, and try for another pinch hit, but I'm pretty happy with these stats. I LOVE YULETIDE!

Wow, congratulations! When do we get to see your stories?

It was fun writing with you that one time. I'm glad you're happy with your final results! :D

All the stories are released on Dec. 25 - they stay anonymous until Jan. 1st.

I enjoyed it, too! I'll be writing a bit more in the next few days, if you ever see me on, and want to write, feel free! ♥

Ah, got it. I'm looking forward to reading 'em!

Ooh, sounds good, will do! Definitely feel free to do the same with me. :)

\o/

As one of the 10+ people you bugged, I have to say I'm super glad that you did, else my own fic might not have gotten done quite so quickly, and there would have been no treats from me. ;)

And also: thanks for introducing me to Yuletide in the first place. I've had such a blast writing stories for this (especially this year) and I've gotten such amazing fics back, too. Yuletide rocks!

I'm in awe.

And a little scared. ;)

Don't be scared! (Unless they suck, of course....) I hope you wrote in fandoms I'll read! :)

oh cool! what fandoms are you writing for?

I can't say... part of the challenge is that authors are anonymous from the release of the stories on Dec. 25 to reveal time on Jan. 1st. I promise to say then! :)

I could never hope to match you in all those stats. XD Wow.

But my assignment got done and posted on time, with some amazing beta work (wow, one beta shredded me XD), and now I'm hoping to get a bunny to write a treat or two. :p

*snugs*

YEAH, but you are SO much more prolific on a regular basis than I am! I hardly wrote more than 20K the whole rest of the year.

I hope those bunnies attack! ♥

Aw, shucks. :p That's only b/c I write in so many fandoms! XD

*crosses fingers for rabid bunny attacks*

This is amazing!

I know I've said it before, but I'm in awe. :). Go you!

:) I just love yuletide!

And I will always think of you as my Yuletide 2010 friend! It brings awesome people together.

Aww! ^_^

This was my first Yuletide, and it was definitely a great experience. I'll be signing up again next year for sure!

May I just say that I love you like a thousand times for this hyperboleandahalf-yuletide-crossover icon! It's made of pure win! <3

You amaze me :) I love yuletide, so much good reading.

If my Adam stanning hasn't driven you to unfollow me, a little yuletide isn't going to faze me!

LOL, you are mild compared to some of the compulsive Tweeters I follow. If I can handle that, I can handle your Adam-stanning. :D
