Forgot to post this blog yesterday to coincide with the awards ending. It was a long day. But here it is now!
This year’s round of the Blank Page Awards was incredible! There were roughly four billion voters — okay, okay, just 116. Still insane! To the best of knowledge, that makes these awards the biggest and most successful since 2006. It’s so great to see hanfic booming again! It makes me want to see even more awards and do even more fun little projects for you guys.
So, in that vein, I want to start doing something I had planned to do way back when this site began. I attempted it, but then abandoned it. What is it? I wanted to post recs lists here on the blog every now and then. I’ll be starting that in just a few days, with some rather timely recs – Halloween themed! Dark, sometimes scary stories have always been popular in hanfic, and Halloween is a good time to showcase some of those stories. Now that the awards are over, I can get a bit caught up on my reading and get these recs ready.
Look for my Halloween recs in a few days, then the November spotlights! 🙂
