Temptations

Tempting me right now: The Multifandom Polyamory Big Bang Challenge. cliche_bingo.

The Poly Big Bang is not an earth-shattering kaboom: only 10,000 words. The Buffy/Giles/Xander story I'm writing now is already near that, and it's far from first-draft status. (I'm guessing 15K when done.) I'll probably decline to commit to finish the fic, though. Even September 20 as a draft date feels too close. But hey! You could sign up!

We're all probably too late for Cliche Bingo, though. They're closing signups at 400 participants. I suspect they don't have an automated way of generating bingo cards, though even with that, managing that many participants would be a big job. One thing I'm not tempted to do again is run any more ficathons. I'm not any good at it, and I'd much rather be writing quietly in a corner.

This is all procrastination from writing, you realize. Somebody should kick me.

I was thinking (a dangerous yet fortunately rare occurrence) about the recent fandom go-round about warnings, which is iteration #392 in what is likely an endless culture clash. If you want to catch up on the thrash, check out metafandom's warnings tag. In this post I share the evolution of my own thinking about warnings, and a decision I've taken because of this most recent discussion.
