30 Days Of Fan Fiction: Day 19

19 – When you have plot ideas, do you sit down and start writing right away, or do you write down the idea for further use?

Sometimes I start writing straight away if the story's going to be a short one or the idea's just irresistible. Otherwise I tend to file the idea away in my mind (I don't write it down, no) and now and then bring it out and mentally play in it when driving or walking and wanting to entertain myself. At some point I'll actually decide to make a start at writing the thing but it can take, um, years to get round to that. I'm about to start one of those fics, a long one which has finally begun to ripen, though I'm not really sure of a lot of the middle.

Rest of the questions

20 – Do you ever get ideas from other people's stories or art in the same fandom?

21 – Have you ever written a sequel to a fic you wrote, and if so, why? If not, how do you feel about sequels?

22 – Have you ever participated in a fest, ficathon, or a Big Bang? If so, write about your favourite experience in relation to one. If not, are there any you've thought about doing? And if not, why not?

23 – When you post, where do you post to? Just your journal? Just an archive? Your own personal site?

24 – How many betas do you like to use to make sure there aren't any major flaws in your fic? Do you have a beta horror story or dream story?

25 – Do you listen to music while you write? Do you make playlists to get into a certain "mood" to write your fic? Do you need noise in general? Or do you need it completely quiet?

26 – What is the oddest (or most fun) thing you've had to research for a fic?

27 – Where is your favourite place to write, and do you write by hand or on the computer?

28 – Have you ever collaborated with anyone else, whether writing together, or having an artist work on a piece about your fic?

29 – What is your current project or projects?

30 – Do you have a favourite fic you've written? What makes it your favourite? And don't forget to give us a link!
