Me too!

That I Write Like generator is pretty silly, but fun. I put in different bits and got different results, like everyone, but got duplicates of Stephen King, James Joyce, and Chuck Palahniuk. That last one was for the Spike/Buffy wedding story, no less! Hee! I guess it wasn't too sappy, after all. My very favorite is when I plugged in the whole of Moist and Delicious and got Jane Austen! I was going for that period style when I wrote it, so that's cool, but considering that I quoted an entire paragraph of Jonathan Swift, I'm a little surprised he didn't pop up. Another amusing match was Vladimir Nabokov for The Out-of-Towner, probably because I mention Dracula's first name: Vladimir.

But the main reason for this post is to announce that I have rearranged my fic master list! Which is to say, now there is one! I Ta da!

I used to have everything in links down the side of my journal, but I ran out of link space at the beginning of the year, and it's been bugging me that the listings were incomplete. I'm a librarian's daughter, so I was paralyzed by the prospect of a huge amount of cross-referencing. I wanted to have the chronological order, the characters, the story length, a short summary, AND whether the story has received any nominations or awards. Yes, there is a slight strain of OCD that runs in the family. I'd appreciate it if any of you would be willing to give it a spin and let me know how it works for you and if you have any suggestions for making it more useful.

Happy almost mid-summer, my sweets!

Just spend a couple minutes skimming down your fic-o-rama. I like it, and I can see that I could easily spend quite a long time reading though the stories. There may be a couple I haven't read yet!

Okey dokey, then. I'm glad you like it. If you think of any features you'd like to see, drop me a line anytime!

I think it's a great list and very well laid out. I like very much that everything's in chronological order.

Looks like there are quite a few things on there I've managed to miss, which I must rectify and which reminds me that I still haven't got around to re-reading your Seasonal Spuffy fic. Mea culpa. :(

Do you think it might be my obsession with putting things in chronological order that led me to fantas_magoria? Heh. I'm glad the list works for you. I'm sort of surprised that there's much you've missed. I never feel like I'm writing a lot, but counting up the stories puts the lie to that. Maybe it's that everything is relatively short. No novels here, no ma'am.

I still haven't put Defenseless on the archives, just in case you have any suggestions. No pressure. *koff*

Oh dear! I'm so sorry. I will try my best to do it this week.

There's nothing wrong w/ a little OCD. Everything looks good, and I love how you used cut-tag links to the different chronological breakdown on your link list. Heh. Something I would have done. ^_~

¡Yay! A little OCD is practically a requirement for list-making, I think. I have even more cut-tag breakdowns for people who stumble across my journal. The trick is getting the breakdowns small enough, but not too small...

Thanks for reporting back!
