You have more chances than usual this year to guess what I wrote for Yuletide. If you guess right, you get, uh, bragging rights? And, I dunno — let’s say I’ll mail you a cover flat of A Natural History of Dragons if you want one, since I have a whole stack of them now, and no idea what else to do with them. 🙂
So, remember how I said I spent the month of November seeing how much I could get written?
This year for Yuletide I wrote eight full-length stories (i.e. more than 1000 words) and four stocking stuffers (less than 1000 words, posted to the Yuletide Madness collection).
Of the full-length stories, five were for movies, three were for books (though one of those I wouldn’t much count as a “book”) and one was for a TV show; one, as you may notice from the numbers, was a crossover. Of the Madness stories, one was for historical fiction, one was for a song, one was for a TV show, and one was for a movie.
No two stories are in the same fandom. One of them does, however, reference a character from another story. Length for the full-length ones ranges from about 1100 up to 7000 or so; for the stocking stuffers, it’s about 350 to 550. And, as a final hint, several of my titles ended up rhyming with one another, for no apparent reason. 🙂
