It’s been a while since I last posted something here, or any of my other blogs. To be truthful I lost a bit of interest in blogging, and got distracted by other things in real life, and my writing.
I have been active writing fanfiction, although I’ve not posted anything to the sites like fanfiction.net, or Potions and Snitches.net. It’s not because I don’t want to, because I do, but because I have so many things I want to post, and yet… I’m not sure I should since all of what I have is unfinished, and most have no true names.
No Title 071, or Untitled 055, or even Unknown Title 010 tell nothing. Unfortunately I reached the conclusion I’m pants at naming my stories. The only exception are Snape’s Child, The Second Prophesy (which needs a major overhaul), and Starting Over.
Snape’s Child came in response to a challenge issued at Potions and Snitches.net. I simply loved the idea of it, and while it does not follow the challenge exactly I’m trying to comply with most. I have posted ten chapters already, and I have two more on the works with many ideas.
The main reason why I have yet to post in any fanfiction site besides my blog is because the Muses are slow with the inspiration. I don’t want to leave them on hold for so very long. Like I have with Apprentice, Unexpected Child, Second Chance, Letters Truth and Hope, Another Chance at Childhood, and Present Time.
My other stories aren’t abandoned yet, and this year I will finish at least one. That is the only New Year resolution I made.
FINISH SOMETHING, ANYTHING!
It’s hard though, new ideas keep popping all the time, plot bunnies run rampant, yet none provide me with something more than the start, or on rare cases even the middle. So I get stuck, and they end in the bookcase for months until I remember them and get back to the story.
I will start uploading the plot bunnies (more like story bunnies) to the blog once I manage to capture them into Scrivener (I adore it, and it has helped to organize my work). I might even start posting on the fanfiction sites, if I manage to name my stories.

It seems that no matter what, I simply can’t make regular posts. Sighs. But this does not mean that I have been completely idle, or away from writing.
At the moment I have about six stories already divided into chapters even though they are not yet completed. Most are at around ten chapters in lenght (all over 40,000 words), and while progress does not go as fast as I would like, they are still progressing.
With the holidays coming (and having the family over for them), I don’t think I’d be able to add much to them. Still, I’ve decided to post them not only here, but on other sites as well.
I have Gen Harry/Severus stories that will go to Potions and Snitches, Fanfiction.Net, and the General category of HP Fandom. Of them only one has a name, and I already posted the first two chapters here. Snape’s child, title no longer tentative. I have ten chapters done, and a good outline of where I want to go with the story.
The others I have yet to name, but at least three are Snarrys, although not slash. I posted part of them here already, but I have made corrections, and will post them under their title once I have decided what to call them. No Title 067 -for example- says nothing about it to anyone but me, as it’s part of my personal filing system.
No Title means it’s a Snarry story, as opposed to the Untitled, which are Gen stories. The number is just a consecutive. So far I have 111 No Title stories (Plot Bunnies that are over six pages long, and two ‘revisions’) and 98 Untitled stories.
The No Title stories will be posted here, at Fanfiction.net, HP Fandom (under the name animealam1), and probably at AdultFanfiction.net. I might post at Walking the Plank, though I’m not sure since most of my stories are Gender Benders. I’ll probably write the site admins to ask if it’s alright to post there.
There were changes to chapters 1 and 2 of Snape’s Child, so they will be resposted. Then I’ll start posting the new chapters every couple of days I think.
As to Present Time: The Re-Write it’s going great, although slower than I would like since I really have to break down the larger chapters into smaller more maneageable ones. I’ll probably post some as well here, although not yet at Fanfiction.Net (The lemons will be at AdultFanfiction.Net once I reach them.)
