Remix Debrief and Discussion, 2008

It's time for my annual remixredux08 debriefing post, in which you are all welcome to hang out and discuss the pitfalls, problems and triumphs of this year's challenge.

I had a great time with my remix this year, despite the deadline rushing towards me like a freight train and a migraine that wouldn't quit. I felt much more confident about what I was doing, so didn't feel the stress of previous years. Ironically, I'm not sure that translated into a good story; but I'm really happy with it. I tried something new, and didn't go for the obvious choices, and even if it didn't quite come off, I loved taking the risk.

What about all of you? Any unexpected disasters or last-minute triumphs? Have you discovered any new, nifty tricks for making remixing easier? How did you go about picking which story to remix (that always fascinates me)? I chose a personal favourite this time, which was daunting but lovely :)

Once the stories go live, you're also welcome to talk about the remixes of your own work.

I've opened this post a little early this year because I'm off on a writers' retreat for the rest of the week. Go ahead and have fun in comments, but please keep things polite. I don't want to come back and have to use my Smiting Fist of Modding Power.

Anon posting is on. Please remember to keep things anonymous until the reveal.
