1. So it's kind of official that The Thick of It has had eight more episodes commissioned for next year. As you can imagine, I'm ridiculously happy. But next year seems so far away. And I desperately want to know whether the forth series will focus on the election, or just skip it and have the winners in power, or follow Nicola and Malcolm in opposition (And, I suppose there is the outside chance that Labour will actually win the election, and the show can just continue as was).

2. I feel I should be more exited about the new series of Doctor Who than I am, but I just can't find it within me. Still, I'm looking forward to the new episodes and I'm prepared to fall in love with Eleven and Amy.

3. I am really exited about Ashes to Ashes though, but trying to remain spoiler free. Oh, I want Sam to be a bit part of this season. I want Annie to show up. I want Ray to get an awesome storyline (I'm not sure how it happened, but somewhere in season two, Ray became my favourite character). I hope it doesn't disappoint.

4. I've entered Remix...Redux this year. I've never done it before, so this should be fun.

5. Generally though, I feel I'm in a better place with my writing than I was this time last year. I completed two very small pieces of fanfic last year, and I certainly wasn't making up for it with original writing. I had this huge self-doubt block last year and I seem to have moved past it. Still, I have my short attention span to contend with.

I've actually had a huge epiphany regarding my ability to finish things lately. I'm one of those people who like to think they write or creates for themselves. Certainly, I writing things I want to read. But I figured that the dynamics of the fandom I'm writing in motivate me to actually stick with something and finish it. I've had a huge TTOI output lately because it's such a small but enthusiastic fandom, making me really want to contribute. I've got a few DS9 things in the works at the moment, similar situation. Remus/Tonks sub-fandom within Harry Potter was the same, but with the added bonus of that I was railing against the overwhelming Tonks hate and I'm very motivated when I'm railing against something. The majority of the Donna fic I wrote I wrote back in the days when it seemed all of Doctor Who fandom was up in arms about Catherine Tate's casting, so that was me railing again something again. Funny enough, as soon as the majority in DW fandom recognised Donna was awesome, I was less productive. Last year though I was hanging out in BSG fandom, and not to criticise people because the individuals in BSG fandom are wonderful, the fandom as an whole was so bitter and burnt by 4.5, it just wasn't motivating.

So apparently, give me a small fandom, or an unpopular standpoint in a large one, and I'll actually finishing something for once.
