Well, it finally happened! I mailed the contract for my first professional novel this morning! Whoo hoo! *dances* :)
me_ya_ri and I are now both authors with ForbiddenFiction! I'm very excited! :)
Thanks to everyone who encouraged me. I have some great friends here in fandom, that's a fact! :)
What does this mean for me fanfic-wise? Probably not much of a change except that I won't be as prolific, which was trending that way, anyway. After five years and close to 500 stories written, my fannish Muses were beginning to slow.
However, I still plan on being active in fandom in general and LJ in particular. I still intend to mod my comms and host and contribute to my Challenges. I'll be finishing my 12_stories Mel/Johnny claims table. I have 10 of 12 stories already done (3 have been posted) and the rest just need revising/typing/posting. Same for my multi-chaptered Steve/Diana story, my last fill for their dcu_freeforall claims table, and Rainbow's Freedom fans, not to worry! The rest of the story is written. It just needs revising/typing/posting. I'll still be uploading to A03, just at a slower pace. Needless to say, I'm glad I did the Big Bangs last year! ;)
Basically, I'll still be around and posting/hosting/writing/replying/reading/c
Thanks again, darlings! *big hugs and kisses*
