This little piece of the internet belongs to me!!! Hahahahaha!!! Bow before your benevolent goddess, mortals!!!
Ahem. Sorry. I have no idea what came over me. I totally got over that little case of megalomania years ago. I have a doctor’s note to prove it.
Right, back to the stuff. I’m supposed to write something meaningful or funny. Fresh outta ideas, folks. You’re stuck with whatever I have left over from writing. Considering I’m just coming out of one of Keira Marcos’ challenges, that means I have nothing left. A month-long writing challenge will do that to a girl. Person. Being. Thingy.
Did I mention I’m an insomniac who does most of her writing after midnight? Best get that out there.
So, rules and stuff.
1. Don’t be a bitch. That’s my job. Kidding (so not kidding).
2. Don’t steal.
3. Don’t diss on other people.
4. Join Keira Marcos’ army of minions on the internet. Serious, what’s wrong with you? Move your ass!
5. Don’t bitch about my fandom or story genre choices. Don’t like slash or always-a-girl stories? There’s plenty of internet out there for you to play in.
6. I make the rules and I can change or add to them as I like.
For the record, I have been weaned on a diet of snark, sass, and bitchery. And that was before I spent years of my life on the internet. Take your chances.
I added some new artwork to my Banner and Story Art page because when I get stuck on a story I like to make pretty art to distract myself. There’s a sample at the top. Yes, I do love me a female superhero, even if it’s one I genderbent into a BAMF lady. I make no apologies for having a girl crush on my own character.
Fangirl is what happens when I start writing a slightly meta short fill for a prompt, and let my inner Fangirl air her love of geeky shit while poking at some of the shit that irritates her (and me and yes, I am talking about my own brain like it’s a separate entity but at least I don’t blame shit on a muse).
Oh, so many projects. Specifically, the next writing challenge I’m participating in is the Rough Trade July Challenge. This is an episodic challenge, which is something new, so I’m pretty excited and a little terrified. My series will be called Rising Tides and, hands up who’s surprised that it will be genderbent? (answer: not me!)
I’ll be writing a Stargate Atlantis/NCIS story. I’ve never really written in the SGA fandom (though I have read a lot of them). I’m very pleased with my plotting so far and am looking forward to July, though the episode format will be very challenging. You might have noticed, but I’m a wordy bitch and word economics aren’t something I’m particularly good at.
The second story in The Future Is My Past, The Past Is My Future series, tentatively titled Yesterday’s Tomorrow. No, I do not know when this will be done.
The First Casualty is my November 2016 NANO project. I wrote just over 50 000 words during that month, meeting the challenge requirements though I didn’t complete the actual story. I am continuing to work on this and will, hopefully, complete and have it betaed some time this year.
Rough Trade has a new forum, titled The Workshop. As part of this forum, there are two prompt threads called The Big Short. One is thematic, and responses must be under 1000 words; the other is a character prompt and tops out at 2000 words. I’ve been responding to some of these as writing exercises and as a way of distracting myself from NANO. I’ll be posting those short stories on this site as well as AO3.
