Yuletide squee 

Got my assignment - and I can actually see myself writing two of the three requests, which is great! Most years I only got one match, and often from a "bucket list" fandom (i.e. I'd agreed to write any character, so it wasn't necessarily about "my" ship). This time, I've actually been active in one of the fandoms, and the other one I really like - I might pick that one, to challenge myself a little.

@shirasade Oooh, yay! My assignment was a last-minute offer (second year in a row!!) and I'm really excited about it but I have no idea what I'm going to write, yet πŸ˜†

I now want to spend all my free time obsessing over the source material and brainstorming ideas πŸ˜‚

@enchantedsleeper Knowing me, I'll procrastinate horribly and then will have to write something in the last 2 weeks...

@shirasade I've pre-emptively booked the Monday before the Yuletide deadline off work, because that worked really well for me last year πŸ˜† I planned it out pretty well, but 90% of the writing got done in the three days before the deadline. It was surprisingly fun to just power through it!

@enchantedsleeper I'm just so grateful that the minimum word count is so low - it always helps me to know that I'll definitely be able to churn out *something*. Takes off some of the pressure, and I always end up with something longer. (Although I'll never write an epic.)

@shirasade Yes, agreed! I unexpectedly wrote 10k last year which I don't think is going to happen again, but I'm aiming for a few thousand words 😊
