Because you can just secretly write something for someone and they don’t know until they open the ‘stocking’

I think I just really *hate* prompts. And expectations, although I do quite like things like the Fandom Stocking

I got really ill the fist time I did it and after that, every time I thought about it started to feel poorly again. XD

through these which I don't think would have happened in this way otherwise. So I would never complain! XD

challenge. Mind, most of my longer stories are exchange stories that wouldn't exist without the prompts or ideas given by the recipients. I also came to develop a sizeable part of my headcanon

Writing to specifications can totally help you when you're stuck otherwise. ;o) I was unsure about that, though, when I wrote my first exchange story, but started to really appreciate the challeng

I actually just did Ziggy a little gift-fic, but I am sure writing to specifications is horrendous.

But not everything works for everybody, and nobody should feel bad because this or that is not their cup of tea! Just be happy with what you create, or read and watch, share with fellow fans. <3

On the other hand, most people are easy to write for and happy to receive a gift in the first place, and like the story already for the simple fact that somebody was willing to write it for them.

I am a middle school Intensive Reading and Medical Science teacher. I am a lifelong fan of Tolkien, having read the series,Book of Lost Tales I & II, The Silmarillion, and The Children of Hurin.

In addition to teaching, a semi-pro photographer and run my own outdoor lifestyle website. I love doing almost anything outdoors.

I believe that to really be able to teach others how to do something, you must be able to do it yourself, so I started writing a story when I was given a Gifted Language Arts class where I could truly teach the craft of writing, not just the mechanics of writing. I am really kind of new to "true" story writing, but I have learned so much during my endeavors.

What a wonderful journey it has been for me!
