Fic meme, Day Twenty-Two

Day 22 – Have you ever participated in a fest or a Big Bang? If so, write about your favorite experience in relation to one. If not, are there any you've thought about doing? And if not, why not?

Yes, too many to list. And they're all uber stressful, lol, so much so that I'm not sure I've got a favorite experience. The one that stands out the most might even be considered a fest. It was the William Fic Exchange I hosted years ago, because I wanted more William fic in the Buffyverse. I loved that for the creativity that was involved and for the huge influx of fic, of course, lol.

The one that intrigues me the most that I'm terrified about trying is yuletide. There's so much involvement that it's very overwhelming just to look at it. And most of the fandoms I've never even heard of, which is the point, I know. I *want* to try it, but I'm held back because I a) fear that I'll suck, b) don't even know what fandoms I'd offer since it takes a lot to even get me into a fic writing place for fandoms, and c) am put off by how complicated the whole thing looks like, and d) mentioned that fear thing, right? Because honestly, that's it. For all that I've done, every time I put a toe into new waters, I'm absolutely terrified. I loathe the unknown and being out of control. I'm the person who shows up half an hour early for events just so that I can scope out the place first as well as be the first to arrive, just so I'm not walking into a room full of strangers. So...I don't know if I'll ever come my fear to take this leap. Unless it's something I'm *dying* to do, I usually need somebody to spot me to get me going. If that makes sense, lol.
