03:21 pm - Fan fic recollections -- AKA oh dear, AO3 formatting...
So I'm finally getting around to fixing formatting on some of my fics which I transferred over to Archive of Our Own a couple of years ago. I went back to read a couple of old fics (as you do -- err, as I do, anywa) and realized that they had serious formatting errors or were, in a couple of cases, actually missing paragraphs from the end!

So I'm going through them all, oldest to newest, and it feels like reliving a bunch of my younger years. I was a good deal more tuned into some characters' baggage than I thought; not always as good a writer as I thought; sometimes much better than I remembered.

It's a very fun exercise, overall. And only a few of the fics, so far, need any serious edits in terms of missing content or formatting.

Reading old fics is fun! Once I've gotten enough distance to not be too self-judgmental about them, anyway.

I remember you being an awesome writer, fwiw!

Aw, thanks! :) It's that fun thing about looking back and realizing that while my word usage is good, there's some bits that aren't quite me, yet; that are more my imitation of what I love.

A necessary step in the process of learning to really write, but odd to recognize in hindsight!
