1) First rain after a long dry and hot period. Very welcome refreshing.

2) Phone call with my great-aunt.

3) Yummy quiche for dinner.

I wanted to. But nope, it didn't happen.

Work was busy-busy. I had an audit to perform with one of our auditor trainees and it was a good bit more in-depth than I expected. I'd blocked out 2 hours for it and it ended up being 2 1/2 hours and I didn't even get the report written up. Oh well, it is what it is.

And then when I got home there was stuff to do with the hubby and things to clean up and a long walk after dinner so I didn't get much written at all. Only 1200 words. I am up to 14K, though, so I'm not worried about it. Not sure that I'm going to keep the twist that I just put into the story. I think it's too soon for it. Or maybe it's not right yet. We'll see. I'll think it over, sleep on it and then write more tomorrow.

Hopefully without cutting the words I wrote today.

Didn't get more homemade Lush made. I might go nuke some cocoa butter and mix it with jojoba oil before I run my bath, just to see how that goes. But probably not.

Goals for tomorrow include writing, getting the POD version of this week's story done since it didn't happen tonight, exercises, and maybe, if I have time, homemade Lush products.

Off to bath and bed for me--goodnight everyone!

1) last day of work for this week.

2) phone call with Lhune this evening. And with my sister.

3) going to bake a surprise for my boyfriend :-)

Another busy day

Work was busy enough, between meetings, that I got not one word written even on breaks. I did get 2400 words after dinner. Sinead has dealt with the issue of the transwoman and is now dealing with a surprising issue with her mother. Should be interesting to see how that plays out. I've no idea how long this story is going to be but right now I'm above 12K and just barely started. Just have to keep on writing until I find the ending.

And see if my internal sense that this all ties back into Sinead's Delbhana relatives is correct. Which would be cool if I can make it work out.

We'll see.

Got my steps today because the hubby had his mid-year performance review and needed to to babble while walking it off.

I'm kind of noodling on a new world in the back of my head. I'm not sure I'll actually write it anytime soon, though. I want to combine harems and veils with temperate rain forests like in the Puget Sound but I'm not sure how to do that yet. I need to figure out clothes and food and terrain and maybe draw a map or something. You know, in my copious amounts of spare time. I did do some doodles of potential ways of doing the veils (think bamboo / reed / straw woven hats that people wear all the time) but I don't know that I'd want to do it that way. Would everyone wear hats all the time? How would that affect their society? How the hell would I describe people's expressions???

I don't know. I'm still pondering it for now. More sketching may be necessary.

The one thing I did get done this morning before work started was that I got this week's short story into ebook format. Now all I have left is the POD format and I'll be ready to upload on Thursday. That's good even though no one is really buying the series. *sad sigh* Don't care. I enjoyed writing it and I'm going to share it even if no one sees and cares for a good long time.

Goals for tomorrow include writing, finishing the POD, exercises, making homemade Lush products, and that's about it.

Off to bath and bed for me--goodnight everyone!

Anti-procrastination Tuesday

I'm losing track of the days of the week here! Pretty sure it's Tuesday somewhere (possibly even here!) and even if it's not, it is definitely some point around the middle of the week. And with that in mind, it's time to tackle the one thing that's been lurking.

What's your goal for this week?

1) Water with lime and mint

2) Boyfriend's mum is coming over for dinner.

3) Refreshing cold shower this evening before an early night in...

...mostly because of a very different verbal pattern from my own. But it's going. I got 2500 words today and Sinead's into the mystery. Actually two mysteries that she's not aware yet are related. I've no idea how they're related yet but yeah, they're related. Somehow. I'll find out as I write.

And I have an official transwoman character in the story so now I have to figure out how Atalyan society feels about trans people. But that's a job for tomorrow. My eyes are burning. It's definitely time to get off the computer.

Not to mention that my torn fingernail on my pinky is not making typing fun at all.

Got my steps today, which is good. Not so good is that I forgot that my mother's birthday is on Wednesday and I didn't buy her a birthday card this weekend. So it's going to get there late. Darn it.

Goals for tomorrow include sending out the card, writing, exercises, preparing for the audit this week, and maybe making some more Lush replacements in the evening. We'll see how I feel tomorrow after work.

Off to bath and bed for me--goodnight everyone!

Sign-ups are open. The sign-up summary can be reached from the sidebar once at least 5 people have signed up.

Post or link your Dear Fic Corner Scribbler letters here.
You'll want to list the following at a minimum:

your AO3 Name (especially if it's different from the name you're commenting with).
Fandom 1
Fandom 2
etc.
Link to your letter on or off LJ/DW

You can also post your entire letter in the comments.

A note on optional details
Optional details are optional, but participants may have very strong feelings about how they want their childhood fandoms to be handled. I ask that you also respect any squicks/strong feelings expressed in their letters.

That being said, your letter is not the place to ask for a character who wasn't nominated or a specific relationship, unless it's one of several options (or something like "I love everyone/Character X, so feel free to include them if you want"). Remember that your writer only signed up to write the characters listed and might not be prepared to write for other characters. Don't make your writer sad because they know they can't please you.

Fic Corner Sign-Ups are live.

Sign-up on AO3. You will need an AO3 account, but their queue is down to less than a day. Please note that you must be logged in to sign-up. Sign-ups will close on June 28th

Fic Corner Tag Set.

Dear Fic Corner Scribbler letters can be found here.

Requests

You must request at least three fandoms, and can request up to ten. You may request between 0 (any) and 10 characters. The exchange is set up to match ANY, not ALL to increase odds of matching. You may not be matched on ALL the characters you request.

By requesting Any, a participant is requesting Any characters on the fandom's nomination list. Do not be that person who requests Any in Fandom F, but writes about specifically wanting Character Z from Fandom F who wasn't nominated.

You may also request Any if you want fics focused on worldbuilding instead of a specific character(s).

Prompt URL: If you want to leave a Dear Fic Corner Scribbler letter for your writer, this is the place to do so.

Description: Optional details are optional, however, if you want to give your writer ideas, this is the place to do it, whether you write a letter or not.

Offers

You must offer a minimum of 3 fandoms, maximum of 10. You may offer up to 10 characters or offer Any.

The bucket list is enabled, so you can offer more than 10 fandoms, but any fandoms in the bucket list default to ANY characters, ANY ratings. More information about making a bucketlist offer (including a lovely diagram) can be found in the Yuletide sign-up instructions.

Don't forget to request/offer fandoms you want. If you're lukewarm about a fandom, don't request it or offer it. Chances are this will be the fandom you receive/are assigned.

Once at least five people have signed up, you'll be able to keep track of current request/offer numbers via the signup summary.

You may edit your sign up form until sign ups close on June 28th.

1) A light dress for the hot weather today... 

2) Lots of water with flavors. I have one with kiwi and mint. Yum.

3) Finished a book yesterday evening. And started a new one :-)

It's a Matriarchies of Muirin novel, set in the far north of Atalya with Delbhana Sinead (from Repair and Rebuild and Running From the Storm) as the POV character. Except she's not Delbhana anymore. She's Dana. And on her own in Atalya because she can't go home if she wants to live.

I'm planning on a mystery of sorts but right now I don't know just how mystery-like it'll be. I'm going to give it my best and see what happens.

Also, I turned in the first novel of the challenge. I'm 100% going to forget about it, not think about it in anyway, because otherwise I'll worry myself to a frazzle and that does no one any good. Especially me.

Yesterday the hubby and I went on a nice long bike ride only to discover afterwards that the tires on our bikes were dramatically low. Very annoying and much more work than it should have been. We fixed it and the bikes seem fine. My legs, not so much.

Today was laundry day and somehow I managed to tear my right pinky nail right into the quick taking clothes out of the laundry. A good quarter of an inch into the quick. So I've got a bandaid over it and I'm really not enjoying typing right now. Especially hitting enter or backspace. Darn it all.

Can't be helped but man, I really wish I hadn't done that.

Goals for tomorrow include writing, chicken and rice for dinner, exercises, and getting this week's story ready for formatting.

Off to bath and bed for me--goodnight everyone!
