Question for authors

I've had a new fic rolling around in my head lately. I haven't written anything down yet. Do you write more than 1 fic at a time? Do you focus on just the one until t is done? And have you posted more than 1 if you do work on 2 at once?

Trying to decide if I want to add more to my plate and start writing and posting the new one.

I usually write whatever I want to write; it's bad not to. But I have some unfinished stuff on the side, different genre fanfic and some original stuff I stopped writing a couple years ago, and one story I'm brainstorming for a very long time.

An Cat Dubh's the only one I've done that's U2 fic; I haven't posted more than one story on this forum per se. I have done so for other stories on Deviantart, though; I tend to do long stories and short ones at once

If you do start another, just don't abandon the first one (please!) That's the biggest mistake that can happen.

Oh no. I still have too much to do with it. They are moderately similar (you know, love triangles). Little less angst. And this would be my second or third fan fic ever. I usually write just fiction.

Now I'm getting curious...

and I would say, if you can write 2 at once without wanting to kill yourself or drop a story, go ahead.

Wow! Why did I feel like you've written more fanfic than you have? ^^ I've written...erm...2 long fanfics that weren't U2, and before that I wrote normal fiction...usually retellings of myths and legends

I amend my statement of only working on An Cat Dubh right now; I've been considering/writing a little teensy bit of a Larry fic that hopefully will never see the light of day. It is wondrously plotless.

I think MW was my first real fan fic. I think I wrote fan fic many, many years ago before I even loved U2. That was in my spiral notebook in middle school.

The second is going to take some prep work. I need to create a rock band.

Aww my writing was terrible in middle school! Very obscure and confusing. Yours is much better.

You're...making another band? Wow. I'm going to do that for, well, something brief...

Oh and yeah, posting. I post when I finish chapters (and one story at a time), which is probably bad because sometimes I want to remove bits. Ah well ^^

^ Variety is the spice of life, eh?

I usually have several stories stewing in various stages of completion, from hazy ideas to the final tweaking/editing stage. If I get stuck with one, then I can usually think of something for another... But as far as posting goes, I never start posting until I've finished writing it, and so far I've only posted one at a time (gives me a chance to finish the next one off!)... just a personal preference though, I don't think there's anything wrong with posting two at once if you've got the story there.

I usually have two or three on the go at once, but I only post one at a time. Otherwise I'd really confuse myself....not that that takes a whole lot.

Have you posted something recently? I remember always liking your writing.

Firstly, Grace please tell me your triangle includes that guy whose name starts and ends with E.

I currently have three stories on the go now that I've finished LH.

EYKIW still going, Stories For Boys - have quite a bit more written but need to do some cleanup on it before we post more, and a small standalone fluff piece about JT Edge and a pool table....

The new one will have a triangle with Edge. There will be 2 actually. I have to admit that the Edge one will be secondary to the main storyline, but I will try to appease the Edge fans.

Where the hell are all the Bono/Larry fans??

Hahahaha whee!

You're just making me even more impatient. That story helped me write, a looot (and by the way the Gaelic lessons...definitely a good idea ) ...amusing baby U2 and awkward Edge for the win!

I got a book through Amazon - U2 the Early Years. Do you have it? I thought of both stories when I got it.

I just got it Friday. I'm about to start Carter Alan's The Road to Pop. Already is not as good as U2 at The End of the World.
