... I'm not going to close my LJ, but I'm also no longer going to post Fic on LJ. For the moment, I'm going to leave it open and use it for reflections on how my writing is going, I'm not sure how or what yet, but I'll come back to it later (I might go to a completely friends locked journal but I haven't decided yet). But actual stories will not be posted on either LJ or DW.

I'm also not sure if I'm going to leave old stories up on LJ, but I won't make that decision until after school's out for the summer.

All stories will be posted on AO3. You are welcome to follow me over there, I'm shanachie there. And you can subscribe or bookmark my page or just hang out.

For now... well I was going to be impressive and say good night in German, but I'm too tired.

So tinhutlady posted her bingo card the other day and it looked like a ton of fun. I decided I don't have enough to do so I went ahead and joined the comm ([community profile] origfic_bingo ) and requested my own card. I joined the LJ one, not the DW one, but they seem pretty interchangeable.

So here's my card:

Original Fic Bingo
coming homebody alteration/injurytorturemedical treatmentsports/games
baking (cookies)cryingsuicideAU: Alternate History/Continuitydisability (sudden)
physical imperfectionstime travelWILD CARDhomelessnessjourneys and quests
birthdaysmemorieslong-lost love/friendminor characterswings
friend in needabandonmentdomestic blissromantic relationship (assumed)silence

I've already got a couple of ideas percolating, but nothing firm. I need to redo my fic list. I know I won't be doing at least one or two of these because they're triggers for me, but the rest look like a lot of fun!

I'm using the same list from last year, but I'm updating it with the stories I'm working on now or the ones I've added. And removed the ones I've finished. Also added the ones I'd left vague. And this is it. I WILL NOT ADD MORE THIS YEAR! (I lied...I forgot a couple of stories) (Well, I have to determine what I'm going to edit.)

Okay I want to try to finish fics that I've promised for presents (plus a couple of others I have in my head). For those that don't know, work is really kicking my butt so writing has been slow since the job started. This is my plan... taking off from my Fic List on what I will be working on.

I was talking with a friend about anniversaries recently. Writing anniversaries to be specific. She had a semi-important one coming up (her one year anniversary in a specific fandom) and was working on hitting a milestone number of stories written and posted in that fandom in time for it.

I commented that I didn’t think I’d ever marked my writing anniversary like she and another friend tend to. In fact, off the top of my head I couldn’t even remember when any of my writing anniversaries are. The more I thought about it though, the more I wondered when my writing anniversary (anniversaries) are.

The date I joined my writing group is easily discoverable and actually I do sort of celebrate that every year, although the group calls it a “birthday”. I simply needed to log into my account and access my information. I’ve been a proud member of my writing group since May 28, 2003.

My other two anniversaries are a little more difficult to discover. Not because I’m trying to hide them, but because the information isn’t online. One part was never online and the other has been removed for the time being.

So my next step was to discover my fanfic anniversary—the day I published my first fandom story. That took a little hunting through jump drives since I’m in the process of changing computers and moving my stories between sites. The first day I published a fanfic story was August 6, 2007.

There was one more anniversary I was interested in finding. The day I started writing my very first novel. While that novel will never see the light of day, that day is very important to me. Luckily the actual day was not just the day I started my novel, but also the first day of Operation Desert Storm: January 17, 1991. Now this isn’t the day I started writing, just the day I started my first novel.

So how about you? Do you celebrate writing anniversaries? Do you do anything special? I don’t normally, but I’m considering doing something this year. I’ll be hitting my 14, 10, and 26 year anniversaries this year. So at least one milestone this year!

Title: Toasting Absent Friends

Prompt: Tag to 201
Summary: Part of the team goes out to toast the memory of Anne-Marie.
Rating: PG-13

Author's Note: So this was supposed to be more than it turned out, but it kinda got away from me. It’s my first time writing in the fandom, but I have one other story planned and I’ll work on that. (And make this a series once I get it done.) No beta for this so if you see any mistakes, let me know. Thanks to lillyg for catching a couple of my mistakes.

Absent friends )

There's another bit that's only posted on AO3. It was supposed to be the beginning of the second story, but well... I failbotted and it was badly done (not badly written, just continuity problems). So I'll rewrite it. But I enjoyed it so I posted it for y'all to read. Birthday Boy

So normally I have a great crew of girls that read my stories before I post them, but I have an obession that none of them watch.

If anyone watches Crossing Lines (specifically season 2) and is willing to take a look at a couple of fics for me, please drop me a comment.

Thanks! (Alternatively if you're willing to read just to read... let me know.)

(The show is on Netflix and if you'd like to watch the episodes needed, let me know... I'm still working on the stories...)

**To be Edited or Updated as Needed

I decided not to do Dear Me this year, but I still want to have goals and plans for this year. With that in mind, I’ve made some plans and goals for the year. This is just an outline that I will update and make more concrete plans as I decide what I am going to do.

Rocking 2017! )

I've made some lists on my writing site and will be updating them there (for 2 reasons) one I don't want to clutter up this with all the different lists and two I don't want to keep repeating myself. My fic list will remain here and there, but everything else is only there.

Lists! Lists! All the Lists!

I have two and a half days left for my vacation :-(

Granted my first two days back are meetings and no kids, but still. It’s been nice and relaxing. Today I’m home and waiting for “snowmagedeon” (really, not thinking we’re gonna get much since it’s over 40 degrees right now, but everyone is panicking.)

I did pretty well on my to do list for vacation so I thought I’d redo the list for these last couple of days since there’s some things I need to do instead.

This is the list I’ve written today and then I’ll add the things I didn’t get finished at the bottom… we’ll see how much I get done over the weekend:

1. Finish writing goals for the year
2. Holiday stories
3. Check transcript—list ed courses
4. Check to do list
5. Gather embroidery pix
6. Take down Christmas stuff
7. Connect with irishjeeper on fitbit
8. Make cake

9. Upload mini-nano banners
10. Frost cake
11. Dishes
12. Answer comments
13. Look for fabric and patterns for T
14. Review for car

And from last week:
15. Whogeek’s blanket
16. Whogeek’s box
17. Write hair story
18. Valdosta essays
19. Look for work
20. QBA data?
21. Review Magic book
22. Decide on Fire character
23. Lesson plans?
24. Work on other sewing gifts--finished Dragonydream's part one
25. Continue working on birthday gift for B

I wrote a total of 65 stories in 2016; 54 fanfic and 11 original stories. In addition I published my first story on Amazon When the Prince Didn’t Come in Time I don’t have a total word count, but I fell off towards the end of the year because of my new job and other stressors.

I haven’t decided on goals quite yet for the New Year, but I’ll be doing them in the next few days and hopefully be sticking to them. I haven’t decided if I’m going to do “Dear Me” for this year or just do goals.

Original fic: 11 stories, forums, etc

 Hey y'all. Hope you're having a safe and happy new year. I'll post a fic round up and goals and such tomorrow or the next day.

Right now I walked over 5K steps today at the Infantry Museum with illfindmyway and now we're snacking and watching movies to ring in the new year.

Have a happy one!

I've been trying to figure out all day how to pay homage to Carrie Fisher. Because you see, Carrie Fisher is the hero of my generation. I was born the year A New Hope premeried and I grew up playing Luke Skywalker and Han Solo and yes, Princess Leia. And how awesome was it, that the PRINCESS got to rescue the boy?

So really is there anyway to pay homage to the woman that showed a generation of little girls that a woman could be the hero?

I know she had her moments and her weaknesses, but that only made her more of a hero.

So this is all the things I’d like to accomplish before I go back to work on the 9th. Yes Jan 9th! Some I’ll have to repeat of course and some have hard due dates (which I’ve included), but I have plenty of time to work.

All the Things )

I'm still taking prompts over here on Happy Holidays...Who Wants Fic? (LJ link is at the bottom of the post).

Please follow the format on the post or I WILL kick it back at you and/or not fill it.

I'll probably take them through about the 20th. I have started writing them, but won't really start writing until about then since that's when I'm freed!
