Hello there, and thanks for stopping by! I'm no longer active on LiveJournal, but (most) everything I've written is available at my fic community, floofics.

I won't be friending or defriending or anything like that. If you want to add this journal, know that there isn't a good chance I'll update it again. Most past entries are f-locked. Anything about my stories will remain public.

Thanks for all the fish!

I sent the epilogue to Heavy off to the betas Saturday night. And something happened that usually happens at such a time: the voices in my head were silent.

I don't know how you other writers work, but for me, once I get started on a story idea, it plays in my head all the time. ALL. THE. TIME. Whenever I have spare time, the story runs on. It's awesome because when I go to write, I've usually got more to write than time to write it.

But Saturday night, there was just... nothing. I have some other ideas for fics, but I haven't fully committed to writing them (waiting to see how this epilogue goes). So I haven't wanted to spend the time thinking about them. The vacancy, though, seems to be a problem, as I've been reading fic instead of writing it since Saturday night. Like, almost obsessively. I need to leave reviews, but I've been so focused on reading that I haven't taken the time.

I will.

I just found it interesting that as SOON as I was done writing, it's like my brain needed something to fill the silence. Has anyone else experienced this or something like it? Used to be, I had two or three stories in queue and I just went on to the next one. Or I had a fest I was working on, either running or writing for.

Now? I dunno, I'm a bit... listless. My brain is used to the exercise, I guess, and normal, everyday stuff just doesn't cut it (laundry, groceries, making dinner, housework etc.). I'm used to thinking and plotting and planning during those activities.

Anyway. I'm hoping it won't last long. I'm hoping to find a balance, so that I can write one night a week on a regular basis. I imagine fic would be slow to turn out, but better than zero.

Here's hoping. #balance

Stopping tonight (or early this morning) at 24,842 words.

I've still got a few areas that need polishing, a few sections that need enhancing, and at least one spot where I've got to type what i wrote on paper.

My goal is to send this off to the betas TOMORROW. Saturday, August 9th.

*fingers crossed!*

Hello! No one responded to my last post, but I was asking for beta help. No biggie.

Anyway, I'm having some sort of strange luck of the muse. Or something. I remembered today a story I'd started quite some time ago, a "Marriage Law" fic (Wow, Dec 2012!), and I'm anxious to finish the Heavy epilogue so I can write/finish it! So exciting! I'm just hoping that I'll (1) be able to take the time and then (2) actually take the time to expend this creativity while it's here. It's HARD with 2 little kids. I barely have time to do all of the things I HAVE to do, to say nothing of things I WANT to do. But I also know that, if I don't neglect some of the "HAVE to's" and focus on "WANT to's", then I find myself in a bad place. So, maybe this time, I'll run with my Dramione muse. It was fabulous when I wrote 80% of the Heavy epilogue in about 2 weeks. The muse dried up, though, before it was finished, and now I'm just plugging along with it, hoping that the scenes will start to flow naturally.

I so love writing.

Hello friends!

So the bad thing about being out of fandom and then suddenly inspiration strikes is that the people who used to BETA for me are ALSO out of fandom. So I need a beta for this epilogue I'm writing for "Heavy Lies the Crown." If it were simply a one-shot or a new story, I wouldn't be too worried, but ideally I'd want someone who read "Heavy" somewhat recently, so they could help with consistency. It's looking to be about 20K words, which I know is a BIG commitment. If you or someone you know fits this description, please comment here! Thank you!

Hello again,

Is anyone on my F-list in Paris? I have a strange question for a story I'm writing, and I can't seem to find anything online... Thanks!

Well, it's been a week, and I've written A LOT (relatively!). I've got 3.5 pages, handwritten, front and back completed, plus a little bit (hardly worth mentioning) in a word file.

I finished Heavy in February 2011, and I never intended to write an epilogue. But I got a review that just.... made me wonder what happened! And then I got another one today where the reader requested a specific scene, so I'm hoping to incorporate that into the Epi as well.

I'm loving it, basically. Feel SOOOOO good.

Hope you all are well!

Sometimes you get a review that inspires you to write more. We'll see how it turns out.

Hello there to anyone actually reading this! I am amazed. I will get right to the point. In November, I participated in NaNoWriMo, and I wrote just over 50K words of an Original story. I didn't come close to finishing it, and I have been kind of thinking about it again recently. I am actually working on it tonight.

However, not a soul has read a word past the first paragraph. I have no idea if this is complete and utter rubbish. Is there anyone who might be willing and interested in reading what I have so far and giving me feedback? I would be eternally grateful and would happily write something for you as a thank you!

Thanks for considering this request.

Floo

Hello, friends! Can anyone help me? I need a beta job like, today. Sorry, I completely forgot that it would be necessary to have someone else look at this before I submit it. (Been out of touch much, y?) If you're available, I would be super grateful.
