So how many pages did it end up being, memory_echo?

I wrote a fic called 521 back in . . . hmm, 2008 or 2009-ish? And then I wrote a sequel, which took me, like, 4 or 5 years to finish. So all in all, this series encompassed something like 3,200 pages. To finally be done with it was as heartbreaking as it was rewarding.

3,200 pages???

That's a seriously gigantic story!

My story is a meek 44 pages long.

Hey, that's still 44 pages of time and effort! That's more than what most people can do.

My first fanfic I ever wrote was 108 pages long, I believe. (I was in 7th grade, so I look back on what I wrote and cringe.) And then the second one was . . . maybe 180? The third was in the 200s, and it sort of just kept going up from there. Now I'm incapable of writing anything short, it seems.

Someone, Anyone ended up being 1,317 pages, and I originally envisioned it being more around the 600-page mark.

Long fiction is your favorite, I see.
Have you ever tried writing a vignette?

I have written a handful of those, yes. Usually "missing scenes" or character POV pieces.

I write a lot of AU, though, and AU's are typically longer, it seems.

Oh my gosh, the creativity is just FLOWING! I'm crossing the 600-page threshold of my new fic today!

I dont know why I imagine you guys literally writing these fanfics by hand and imagine it being all double spaced like how i use to write my essays in grade school. but kuddos to you both. 10 page, 44 page, 3200 pages. i have a hard time writing 1 page.

Oh, I just love it.

I wrote one scene last night, and the idea for it just kind of hit me out of nowhere. I played the song "A Little Death" by the Neighbourhood over and over again in the background (suuuuuch a sexy song), and I was just so pumped up with the way it turned out. I think I've discovered that flirtatious scenes are my favorite to write--like the scenes that are intimate without relying on actual intimacy. And that's what that scene last night was.

Tonight I've made it to page 608!

You mean like the cheesy romantic novels? Hopefully I'm a little better than that! But I think you're right that they do make lots of money!

I see freakin' 50 Shades of Grey blowing up, though, and I'm just like . . . really? Really?

Seriously, I'm still baffled at the whole 50 Shades thing. It's disturbing.

I've read a couple of excerpts and think it's horrendously written, and the relationship depicted seems pretty damn unhealthy.
