Name: Viktoria, or Vikki
Writing journal: [personal profile] viklikesfic (not just writing, but it's all there)
Main fandoms: Lotrips, actor RPF, Star Trek 2009. Lately, I've been in a mood for figure skating RPF.
Favourite characters/pairings: I'm kind of known for being that person who will write any pairing. I care more about the kinks/the genre/etc. than the pairing. Lately I've been on a Spock/Uhura kick, and also on a Johnny Weir/Stéphane Lambiel kick.
Types: Fanfiction, short stories, novels, poetry, academic writing, blogging
Favourite writing tool: I'm trying to make myself use tools more. At this point, gdocs. I'm trying to get into using Scrivener effectively and haven't so far.
Most difficult part of writing for me: On the fanfiction side, I'm trying to force a transition in style. My current style is very productive, by the seat of the pants, etc., but I've been using it for years and I'm kind of tired of it. It's good for witty repartee and hot sex, but I want more plot, more description, and more UST. Thus, for an upcoming challenge I'm trying to write slower, do more substantive editing, etc. For original fiction and poetry, the challenge is getting myself to sit down and do it and not hate it from the moment I start. I'm much more self-critical with original stuff.
Working on:

  • The last 1,000 words of an au_bigbang story (Trek RPF vampire AU)
  • A 1,000 word [community profile] kirkspock exchange story that I haven't even started because the prompt's a challenge
  • A het_idcrack response that I also haven't started but the deadline's later
  • I want to write something for the [community profile] queerlygen staying up late challenge
  • Drabble responses to a request meme (one of five done)
  • Want to try to write some prompt responses with a pair of new original characters
  • Want to wrangle some WIPs and edit some co-written stuff to post
  • May 1 deadline on a book chapter submission for an academic volume
  • [community profile] napowrimo


Coming up:

  • Trek big bang story with that new writing style mentioned, Spock/Uhura
  • Kink bingo!
