I have “write a more-please” on my writing list, but when it comes up, I often find myself paralyzed by choice. (This is not helpful for writing & directly in counter to the purpose of the list!)
Thus, I’m asking you guys to help me narrow it down. Pick one to three things you’d most like to see continued and comment here.
(For completests: I created a morepls: fulfilled tag for things I’ve, well, written more to, but I didn’t backlog. If you see something that needs the tag to be changed to “fulfilled,” either change the tag yourself or leave a comment on the post that I should change it.)

I’d like to suggest The Bug Rebellion (http://aldersprig.dreamwidth.org/367376.html).
I vote for the aunt family with the glass beads and catalog card, and the goat guyand the cencus taker.
Eva and Rosaria and Willard. http://aldersprig.dreamwidth.org/540379.html is tagged morepls, as is http://aldersprig.dreamwidth.org/534069.html and possibly more, but I think http://aldersprig.dreamwidth.org/558141.html is the most recent bit. Beryl and Radar and the lavender-and-tea kitten. http://aldersprig.dreamwidth.org/634037.html Junie and the gremlins and the would-be kidnappers. http://aldersprig.dreamwidth.org/632365.html (Apparently I like threes today?) Tag updates: http://aldersprig.dreamwidth.org/665806.html was followed by http://aldersprig.dreamwidth.org/735502.html — I think “morepls” was updated to fulfilled on the wrong one? http://aldersprig.dreamwidth.org/665445.html was followd by http://aldersprig.dreamwidth.org/697268.html and that should totally be a morepls. http://aldersprig.dreamwidth.org/655103.html was followed (briefly) by http://aldersprig.dreamwidth.org/691458.html which should also be a morepls. Maybe http://aldersprig.dreamwidth.org/666475.html should be, too, and that one seems not to’ve made it to Genique’s landing page. http://aldersprig.dreamwidth.org/644302.html too. And I think that’s as far as I’m getting today. <thud>
Thanks! (I do “fulfilled” on both the request and the fulfillment. Should I change it to fulfillment?)
Your tags should be useful to you! I understand changing morepls to something indicating it’s been done. I don’t know what you’re trying to do with the “why did I write this?” tags, but you appear to’ve decided recently that you want those. What do you want from them?
Pretty much just a memory job “didn’t I write something for someone?”
Hrm. For me, I think I would use a different tag for “written for a more-please” than for “this thing which was a more-please now has a continuation”. (And I’d probably double tag something like the request in this entry with both the “random more-please” and the specific requester tags, unless you’re reserving the latter for paid (or traded, or …) commissions. (I think LJ lets you pull up tag overlaps? Maybe commissions get a separate tag that can be searched in conjunction with the prompter tag when you want that? Too many tags!) But my organizational scheme is not your organizational scheme. 🙂
Oh, that’s a good idea. The requester tags are for anything someone asks for – prompts, commissions, suggestions. My org. scheme is *throw things around and see what sticks* so I’ll try yours ;-D
Note that this is not a tag scheme I am currently using, just speculation on what I might use were I writing anything like the volume you are. Salt with enthusiasm. 🙂 Do you have tags for “submitted for publication” and/or “accepted for publication”?
Hrrrm, no, because all of the submitted stuff is saved in a “submitted” folder and privacy-locked on dw/lj And sorry, yeah, I meant “I’ll try your suggestion.” I am sooobad atdescription.
No apology called for!
On the Beryl and Radar and the lavender kitten thread, http://aldersprig.livejournal.com/928503.html could be updated to fulfilled, and I would like to put a morepls on the
followup, http://aldersprig.livejournal.com/936490.htmlsecond followup, http://aldersprig.livejournal.com/939740.html And I’ll throw Winter and Tattercoats on my want pile: http://aldersprig.dreamwidth.org/697268.html And Genique: http://aldersprig.livejournal.com/825138.html — or maybe http://aldersprig.livejournal.com/778924.html is the right place to ask? The tags on the http://aldersprig.dreamwidth.org/tag/leverage series might need updating — several are still morepls, but the last one isn’t. Did http://aldersprig.dreamwidth.org/47745.html get followup? That’s a fascinating setup.
