I have been doing this for a few years now and it seems there's always been something happening in January that cut my run short and then I kinda lost my focus and never did a whole complete one... this year I am DETERMINED to get all 15 days done (even if I end up not doing any on the right day... I just need to get them done). Hopefully this year my computer won't break, my internet won't cut out, I won't get sick (I've just been sick, so SERIOUSLY). *touches a whole pile of wood*
What first drew me to the challenge was my love of sharing in other fans' joy for their fandoms. Even for fandoms I know nothing about, I always loved seeing people squee! I love finding new fanworks, granting wishes, the opportunity to be better about starting conversations with people I have never talked to before in a low-pressure environment.
Also I know from previous years that the Snowflake participants are great and friendly people! The very first year I participated I ended up running a fanwork fest and I got much support from other participants. Especially this year, since 2015 was a kind of bad year for me where I didn't get many fanworks at all done and posted, I feel like taking part in this will hopefully set the year off to a good start and help me make 2016 a better year fandom wise. :)
