dangerous

The secret word of the day continues to be "argh"

1000 tags max per journal. Not a problem here, but definitely a potential problem with giles_fic_recs, which has... huh, I can't find a way to get a tag count. But a quick line count reveals 411 tags. Not near the limit, but if I do the backlog and finish off the content & author tags, I bet I'll add another 200. I imagine that more active communities are in trouble.

It definitely kills the vague thoughts I had about tagging by title.

Also, how did I end up with 78 unanswered comments? Argh!

I'm submarining until I can finish a draft of the Buffy is the Hero story. I almost decided to scrap it entirely last night. Start a rewrite from scratch with what I learned thrashing with this version. What I have now is 3500 words of drek. Argh. Argh.

If you want I can read said 'drek' & critique ways its not up to snuff. Not really believing, but giving you 'benefit of much doubt'.

Yeah, me too. In the long run, I decided to salvage it rather than start from scratch.
But look on the bright side: you have now learned a lot. Even if you scrap it entirely (and there probably are more usable parts of it than you realize) ... you learned stuff. About you, and writing, and Buffy. Even if it's only that you don't ever want to write a ficathon again, that's still something you've learned. And learning is good. Giles would approve. Right?

Have you thought about using Memories? I found it very helpful when I wanted to search crack_van for Buffy stories. And that way you might end up with fewer repeat recommendations (I've just finished reading some of Giles_fic_recs using tags and noticed some stories crop up several times).
