Just to blow my horn a little

I love to write. It's one of my earliest memories. I was also fortunate to have encouraging parents who support and encouraged me. While pro writing was okay (but the money mostly sucked), it wasn't fun. For fun, I write fanfic and some original stuff.

Today, I hit a milestone in AO3 - Works (1000). This doesn't count drabbles (there's a couple hundred of those floating around) or any of the plays (only a couple dozen). And for the most part, these are Man from UNCLE or Sapphire and Steel fics. There's some other stuff, of course, but the bulk is MFU. Not bad for someone who was told back in 1980 that she really had no talent for writing Man from UNCLE and that I should leave it to people who knew and understood the characters. Fie on you, unnamed zine editor.

It may not seem like much, but it made me happy.
