Appearances to the contrary, I am alive.  Hubby has a new job.  Things are mostly looking up but moron here forgot to update everyone.  Sorry!

... totally false.   I just did what the icon says.  Took a detour, got lost and am just now clawing my way back.  Just thought I should let you all know I'm still alive.

 Finished a couple more stories for my Torchwood AU fan fiction series.  The stories are posted on my website.  I added it up and since I started writing this series, I have written 145,840 words.  That's a total of 11 stories since mid-June.  I do believe I'm back!

Yes, I'm still breathing despite appearances to the contrary.  I've been writing like a mad fiend on my Torchwood AU.  There's been a few updates on my website related to this AU.  I'm just happy to be writing again.   I've signed up for the annual insanity that is NaNoWriMo.  Considering how many words I've been whipping out so far this year, I should have no problem winning this years event!

Well, my fan fiction series is cruising along at speeds to rival Cardiff residents running away from weevils or, for you non-Torchwood fans, as fast as a gazelle attempting to escape a cheetah. Either way you call it, my brain is in write mode and it won't shut up for love, money or sleep even! I guess that's a good thing.

I signed up for the [ profile] tw_bigbang using one of my series stories as the entry. I should be ready for the longest one by the time the rough draft is due in, but we shall see. That's a 15k story with a draft due date of 28 September. I think I can manage that as the current story in the series is 26k and counting. Go me!

I'm debating writing a story for the [community profile] kink_bigbang. That one is 12k and due by 15 September.  I just can't decide what to do for it or if I even want to attempt it.  So that's up in the air.  I've always wanted to write a proper dark and kinky story, just never really had incentive to do so. Wonder if I have to bribe myself to work on that one.  I'll think on it.

Look at it this way though, if this keeps up, no worries on getting NaNoWriMo done this year!

I think someone's trying to tell me something. I discovered an interesting horoscope on My Yahoo today:
You're not known for doing anything 'just a little.' As far as the rest of the world knows, that mostly pertains to fun things, but in truth, you can't do anything 'just a little.' At this particular moment, then, while some folks might feel a tinge of conscience, if you don't know how to stop it, you'll feel a very big pang of guilt. Don't let that happen. Forget about the past. Look to the future, and think in great big positive terms. That's always your sign's best bet.

Now tell me that's not someone trying to get me off my lazy ass and back to writing for the big boys and not just fandom?  My fan fiction is cruising along very well, spawning lots of new plot tribbles every time I work on it, so the writing gene has gotten reactivated.  How I don't know, but it's back in business.  Good for my brain, bad for my fingers.  Poor, tired fingers. *grin*

So, I'm letting a plot tribble grow a bit, see what develops.  Maybe a bit of kinky m/m erotic romance with a bit of suspense tossed in for good measure.  I may already know what I'll be doing for NaNoWriMo 2009.

 My favorite show ended its week long miniseries in the UK last night.  I'm told it had phenomenal numbers, but the plot and characterization took a nose dive along the way.  I have seen it.  I liked parts of it, hated others, and out right loathed one portion.  Rumors on the net, some from the stars themselves, have said that there will be another season if the numbers are good enough - they likely will be at that - but it won't be the show I fell in love with.  They lied to me about what it was going to be... and now the show runner is gloating about the backlash he's getting from the fans.  He also moved to Hollywood this weekend in an attempt to get a place on American television.  Somehow, I don't see that going well for him.

So, farewell Torchwood... I hardly had time to know you before you were gone.
