The October Project
In anticipation of NaNoWriMo, I’ve decided to set up a bit of a challenge for myself.
Here’s the deal:
Every day for the entire month of October, I will post some fanfiction over at
. It can be as short as a 100-word drabble or as long as a serial story. But it will be there, and it will be me writing.
The basic idea here is that to improve at writing, you need to write. But I get hung up on all the world-creation parts of things. This will give me the chance to write without having to worry about that; someone else has made the world and the characters for me. Now all I have to do is get inside them.
You can expect to see writing in the following fandoms: Pirates of the Caribbean, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Firefly, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Final Fantasy (VII, X, or XII, most likely, though with perhaps some V or VI thrown in), Harry Potter, Star Wars, and perhaps others. I’m open to requests, provided it’s something I feel fairly grounded in.
Care to join me? Drop a comment on the entry linked here
, and I’ll keep a list of who’s playing.
This is the website of Kimberly Hirsh. The subtitle of this site comes from the description of woodland goth on the Aesthetics wiki.

I acknowledge that I live and work on unceded Lumbee, Skaruhreh/Tuscarora, and Shakori land. I give respect and reverence to those who came before me. I thank Holisticism for the text of this land acknowledgement.
We must acknowledge that much of what we know of this country today, including its culture, economic growth, and development throughout history and across time, has been made possible by the labor of enslaved Africans and their ascendants who suffered the horror of the transatlantic trafficking of their people, chattel slavery, and Jim Crow. We are indebted to their labor and their sacrifice, and we must acknowledge the tremors of that violence throughout the generations and the resulting impact that can still be felt and witnessed today. I thank Dr. Terah ‘TJ’ Stewart for the text of this labor acknowledgement.
