Heyyyyy, long time no see. ::taps mic:: This thing still on? So. 2017 is certainly a thing that is happening. Sorry I've been so MIA here, though I have been fairly busy elsewhere.
The new year saw me: spending vast quantities of time on the phone to my congressmen; starting Sisterhood of the Traveling Paperbacks
, a book club podcast I co-host with my dear friends/talented booktubers Chelsea
; continued posts over at Book Riot
; freaking out about the various award nods to works published in Uncanny Magazine
, the SFF mag I'm a submissions editor for; and, most relevant to this post, I've continued on my saga of tweeting a Star Trek fanfiction rec every day until the new series airs aka The Trek Rec a Day Project
For those of you who don't follow me on twitter (you totally should, I basically live there: kaytaylorrea
) , my The Trek Rec a Day Project
started wayyyy back in August of 2016 as a way to combat some negativity surrounding the upcoming addition to the franchise, Star Trek: Discovery. One fic rec a day didn't seem like too much to ask, especially considering I've been regularly reading Trek fic for a few years, now. Except then the premiere date was pushed. And then pushed again. And now we're expecting the show to air
sometime either in the late summer or fall of this year. So. I'm planning to cap this project at 365 recs if we still don't have an air date, or try to make it to the premiere if it's within a few weeks of the 365 day (which I think is August 11? Don't quote me on that, though).
In the meantime! I wanted to point y'all in the direction of my recs, which are currently living on Twitter in three Moments, because apparently Moments go bananas if you put more than 100 tweets in one. Part I
, Part II
, and Part III
. I'm slowing working on a ridiculously long masterpost in the format I use here on the blog, which I intend to post on premiere day (or day 365, depending).
I'm going to try to get back to more regular posts here, or at least giving you a heads up when I have stuff going on elsewhere. Happy super belated New Year, everyone!
