I'm so excited! This is something I've been hoping for and now the amazing [ profile] akintay is just doing it! Go join!

Supernatural Writing Circle

Having seen others do this end-of-the-year wrap-up thing, I'm not going to feel too shy about doing it myself. Seriously, there's value in taking stock of last year's accomplishments and setting goals for the coming year, right? And there are times when I really need the encouragement and motivation that creative accomplishment provides, so there's that, too.

Just finished my fic for [ profile] spnopera and I'm in agony. This is torture, I say, PURE torture! Why did I do this to myself? How can I write something with such a blatantly sad ending? I always try to leave things open-ended, the possibility just beyond the end of the story that maybe, MAYBE this time, something good will come out of the pain and sorrow and TRAGEDY of these boys' lives! This was supposed to be FUN, damn it! Now everybody's gonna hate me when they read it and I don't blame them. Me too! Wahhhhhh!

This is NOT anyone's fault but my own, needless to say; the wonderful mods of this challenge are fabulous people and extremely talented writers, so I have only myself to blame for my own misery. I hope I've learned my lesson and next time I'll choose a comedy (Marriage of Figaro, maybe?) I just like the aria so much and I couldn't resist the thing with the hair *sigh*. I'm doomed.

Got the draft done for [ profile] spn_j2_bigbang and am working on one for [ profile] smpc that is supposed to post this Sunday (ha!) At least it's almost done. Then I have to edit and find a way to post it since it's been awhile since I've done that. Then I need to turn my attention to [ profile] spn_meanttobe which posts sometime in May (ha again!) I've also signed up for the [ profile] wincest_bigbang and am looking forward to working on that because I've got ideas ideas ideas and I'm so excited! I still have stories from AO3 I want to post over here, so there's also that.

And how am I supposed to keep up with this amazing show? The last two episodes have been swimming in feels, making my little wincestuous heart pound with glee! How I love watching the boys doing anything and everything for each other, throwing all moral high ground to the wind and destiny be damned! Although I'm still reeling from Sam's comment to Charlie that he loves hunting, but I'm taking that as he loves his life with Dean, which is pretty much what he says next about not wanting to do it without Dean, so that's my interpretation. LOVED this episode! All the mixing of bodily fluids! Creepy good!

Overwhelmed by all the amazing fics pouring into my inbox from [ profile] spnspringfling! Then to top off my weekend, the most amazing fill for one of my prompts for [ profile] spn_masquerade. I'm still shaking over that one. It's way more than I deserve by a brilliant writer and it's unbelievably perfect. Never expecting to get such a marvelous fill, I have no idea what to do. Do I thank her? Do I let her know she filled a prompt from somebody she doesn't know or give two tits about? Why does this feel like high school all over again?!

Also, why does the advent of spring make me so depressed? April may be the cruelest month, but March is positively vicious. Bought daffodils today just to cheer myself up. Will watch SPN tonight -- maybe something light? Or something sad so I can cry it out?

Have 20K written on my bb story. Wondering if I can make it a "to be continued" fic?

Time to cease and desist all the rambling! Need to read! But mostly need to write, write, write!

I'm still feeling a little giddy! Got up early cuz today was my posting day on my very first challenge fic for the SPNKinkBigBang on tub! I posted it first on AO3 cuz it's way easier than this place, but I'll try to get that done later today or tomorrow.I can honestly say this has been the BEST experience I have had since joining this fandom. Having the privilege of collaborating with smalltrolven, who kindly beta'd my fic, offering innumerable suggestions and endless encouragement, and the amazing talents of winchesterchola, whose artwork has brought the story to life in ways I never imagined, has just blown me away and now I am dead. I'm still shaking, and probably will be for awhile over this experience! I just feel profoundly lucky and so, so happy it's a little ridiculous! I LOVE YOU ALL AND YOU'RE ALL SO BEAUTIFUL! (who needs drugs? ;)

I don't know how Jane Austen could write at the dining room table. All I did today (oh, besides the usual cooking, cleaning, and snow removal) was respond to constant cries of "I'm bored!" and "what are you doing?" whenever I started to try to concentrate. My only real writing time is 5:00 a.m. before everybody gets up, but once the kids and hubby get up it's just not happening :(

Thanks to the lovely [ profile] elwarre, I finally got most of my fics posted here! After struggling with this platform for more than a year, I finally feel like I'm getting the hang of it. Win! And just in time to post my first-ever challenge fic for So I spent yesterday and today posting fics -- practice, practice, practice! and shoveling snow (endlessly). Last weekend it was awesome, reading a [ profile] runedgirl fic as the snow fell, but this week we're all feeling pretty sick of it. The snow on either side of our driveway is taller than Sam!

Trying to write 1,000 words a day and starting to get into this new fic. Young Sam is so addicting!

It took me three hours this morning, after watching the latest episode, but I finally THINK I've got my fic posted. I need to practice because I've joined three challenges and will need to post those stories eventually. So I broke the thing down into eight chapters, posted each one with tags and edits (too much space between the paragraphs -- is there a way to delete these en masse like I can do in Word? That would so much save time!) then the Masterpost with all the links to the individual chapters. Then I get emails for each chapter, like I posted them as separate entries! Which I guess I did, but what a pain! Not to mention I've probably flooded other peoples' inboxes -- so sorry! I guess I need help. How do I -- oh wait, maybe if I post each chapter privately? Then just the Masterpost can go public? Oh. Well, that was embarrassing!

Signed up for the 2015 [ profile] spn_j2_bigbangand the [ profile] spn_meanttobechallenge and am feeling positively giddy with excitement! The spnkinkbb has been such a great experience I can't wait for more! Loved "The Hunter Games," and it's got me thinking about where things are going and what I can do to fix it, which is all I've been doing with my fiction for the past six months, I think. I'll try to post two or three of my stories here if I can over the next week in anticipation of the spnkinkbb postings in mid-February (because I need the practice!) They're already up over on AO3, but I need to try to post everything over here too, so. Also on, I guess, where I opened an account about a year ago and haven't been back since! Oh well..Why do I have to work again? Oh yeah, that little pesky thing called money. I guess I need it, even if I wish I could subsist on pretty pictures of Sam & Dean and wincest fanfiction alone!
