I just posted my 50th fic to AO3, starting from back in 2007 with my very first SG-1 story and going forwards, one fic a day (more or less) at a time. I'm only halfway through 2009 now. Good grief, I used to be prolific.

It's been an interesting experience so far. I am charmed by the statistics page and it's interesting to see how some fics are better received now than when they were first posted (and vice versa). Getting kudos e-mails are fun, because I can tell when one person is browsing through my stories, and it's certainly a nice way to start my morning. :) I can't make up my mind about kudos themselves; are they a plus, because it's nice feedback that you wouldn't get otherwise? Or a minus, because less people bother with actual comments? Or a combination of both, which is probably the reality.

Also, old friends rereading my old stories and commenting on occasion are an absolute joy.

In any case, it's nice to reach a milestone like 50. :) My next fic up will be on Sunday, and that will be my [community profile] stargate_summer fic and I am SO EXCITED to have written something new and substantive, finally.
