25 Days of Writing: Day 16

16. Tried anything new with your writing lately? (style, POV, genre, fandom?)

In one sense, obviously. Whenever I do the Yuletide gift exchange I do treats; and these are often for fandoms I've never written in before. On the other hand, I've been doing Yuletide since 2011; so that part not's new. This year, I wrote stories for Diana Wynne Jones's Eight Days of Luke ("Embers") and Josephine Tey's Alan Grant detective series ("Queue for Exit"). I've seen requests for the latter each year for quite a while; and each year I've put it on my "long list" of potential treats. But it was only this past year that a plot bunny finally poked up. It's not the first time a story has come to me in such a belated fashion; and the probability is high that I'll never write in either fandom again.

Basically, I don't think I've done anything particularly innovative lately. Same old, same old.

This is not necessarily a bad thing!
