Don't be! You're writing, and that's the main thing. Quality not quantity!

No clear pattern I can see, aside from the fact most of them have a name in, and not many are quotes. Yours are short, sharp 'get on with it' first lines, which I always like.

True, I suppose I do have a habit of opening a fic by throwing the reader head-first into the action, which is always one way of getting them to read on.

I think I was disapointed because somehow I *thought* I'd written more than that this year. Maybe I hadn't realised how much work stress and stuff was putting a damper on my writing. That, and the year is rushing by so very fast, and fics that I was thinking were quite 'recent' were actually a month or so old.

I wonder if part of it is that we seem to have so many works in progress! I've got four or five on the go, so I'm writing regularly (plus trying to finish a humungous work writing project by the end of August), so the effort hasn't quite translated yet into finished stories *g*.
