I tend to have a basic outline when I write. Nothing super detailed but a summary of what I "plan" to have happen. I never stick to it 100%, I like having my characters take the wheel cause 9/10 times it just makes everything more interesting.

I've been writing but I haven't been posting cause like in my Miles To Go fic I keep changing things and since it's suspense, it's better I stick with it. Causing delays, which sucks. And my attention span is sometimes soooo ADD. I just got an idea for a old school Kevin/Nick bromance story. It literally came out of nowhere with a "what if Nick ran away from his screaming parents at 14/15 and just showed up at Kevin's door?" LOL. I'm currently outlining it and we'll see where it goes.

I think my favorite thing to write are introspective angsty scenes. I adore getting into the thought process of the characters. Especially Nick cause he's forever dripping with angst LOL.

Regarding slash, I think for me it was Cinzia (pen name Usako) participating in these threads a few summers ago that got me thinking about slash.  She writes Brian/Nick slash.  I read one of her stories for the summer reading challenge one year, and even though I've never been into slash, I enjoyed it.  She's the one who got me thinking maybe I should challenge myself and try to write one.  Then Howie and Nick did this radio interview during IAWLT press where Howie talked about Nick's pubes:  That's when I got the idea for Unsuspecting Sunday and SAMS.

I wish I had something to contribute to this conversation. I'm just happy to see a fanfic conversation happening!

I am also super out of the loop when it comes to BSB fic, so there is that lol

I am interested then, what sparked the uptick of slash in this fandom? Cause for a while I remember there wasn't much. But I remember Julie wrote that Nick/Howie oneshot on the cruise and SAMS and Tracy you're writing now too! Did the boys do something? LOL

I have been writing quite a bit of slash recently Steph lol. I have a lot posted on AC, mostly one shots. I write Mostly Frick and Frack but I have done Nick/Kevin too, although Brian and Nick is easier to write. I have a couple chapters of the novel done just kind of been sitting on it  deciding if I want to post or not. Lol

I guess my process depends. I have a lot of stories that are sitting with an outline (and I use that term loosely - it is really just a document with babble about what might happen) and anywhere from 2k-10k. I find I often can figure out the beginnings of my stories quite easily and then have a harder time with the middle or the end. And then when I get to the middle part they get abandoned. More often than not the stories that I actually complete are the ones that I get the idea for on a whim and the inspiration just keeps coming, rather than something I planned out and thought up long ago.

Although I did actually write and complete a Soccer/World Cup AU in 1D fandom, which was an idea I had when I joined that fandom and didn't write until 2014 or so. So I guess it is possible. In rare occurrences lol.

Tracy, you should write the Frick and Frack slash. There should be more slash in this fandom! Maybe that's what would bring me back, haha.

Ideas that I've always wanted to do? Wow. Well there's a Frick and Frack slash novel I've been toying with, I been wanting to do a story about how they fell apart over the years and stuff. Lots of angst and drama.

I love that fanfic plot idea Julie, I'd totally read it. You should include some cliches in each chapter if you ever do write it. It would be like one of those throwback stories. Like I said, I'd read it.

Ah, that makes sense.  That would probably be better than someone random being the fifth Backstreet Boy.

As a follow-up to your question about story ideas we've been sitting on...  What is everyone's process for deciding to start a new story?  Do you start one as soon as an idea comes to you, or do you wait until you're done with your current story(ies)?  If you're someone who tends to sit on story ideas, how you decide which one to write when you're ready to start something new?

I have a list of story ideas that I always go back and look at when I finish a project, but some of them have been on that list for years and years and have never been written because I always end up thinking of another idea that demands to be written first.  I think Guilty Roads was the last story I started from that list, and look how well that has gone. (Not well.)  The stories I actually finish tend to be more spontaneous ideas that I start writing right away instead of sitting on forever.  I wonder if that's just because the ideas are fresher and that means I'm more inspired or what.

LOL I know, Nick and Britney would have made a hot mess but it would have been fun to write due to its over-the-topness!

I think my plan for the AU was for BSB to be a foursome, rather than putting someone in Nick's place.
