August NaNoWriMo

Aaaaaand… it’s August. I guess if I want to participate in this year’s summer camp NaNoWriMo, this is my last chance.

So I am. 🙂 I’m not going to work on a novel, per se; instead I’m going to finish up all my short fiction projects I’ve had piling up. Like Chuck Made Them Do It, and my Jim/Sherlock Just a Crush. And a new flame-review retaliation story. (It features the Winchester boys, butterfly nets, and trolls). Also on my to-do list are two new Sherlock stories I’ve been holding back, and finally, finally, getting together a readable, workable draft of King and Consort, for all you Okage: Shadow King fans out there.

That should easily get me to 50,000 words. The question is, really, can I do it in a month. 😛

Better get started!

FF.net Reviews — HUGE Shout-Out to My Fans!

It’s been a very, very long while since I checked up on my reviews from my FanFiction.Net postings. (Actually, it’s been a long while since I’ve opened up my play email, as I’m always on my work one). Anyway, I finally did this morning, and I was overwhelmed by all the reviews! You guys make me smile, laugh-out-loud, and my heart clenches each and every time one of you says something thoughtful and kind about my writing. You all, every one, make my day! Even my week!

So thank you, all of you, for reading and putting in the time to review. Even the simplest “This is great!” warms me in a way my sweater can’t. (And yes, I am currently wearing a sweater, even though it’s July. My office keeps the A/C blasting all summer long, and it’s about 70 degrees where I’m sitting–which is right underneath the vent. It’s COLD.) Anyway, I am going to respond to each and every one of these reviews in the next few days, because a lot of them warrant a response beyond just a “thanks!”. I will try to get that done by Saturday night by the latest.

Also, I wanted to share a funny moment: One reviewer so kindly pointed out some negative opinions s/he had about one of my stories and me as the writer of said story. I believe it was on one of my Supernatural stories–maybe Denial is a River in Egypt. Anyway, s/he called me a troll. I KID YOU NOT: I stopped, blinked at the screen, turned to the mirror in my office, looked at myself, and thought “Nope. Still hot.”

*facepalm* Apparently you can now add “vain” to my list of character flaws.

Anyway, as I am wont with negative reviews (and I don’t mean negative as in they pointed out where I had a plot hole, or some grammar mistake or characterization flaw or something. I mean those flaming bullshit reviews that are mostly of the “U R MEAN & GROSS & I HATE U!!!!” variety), I feel the need to retaliate a bit with this one. She didn’t give me much to work with, but she mentioned Jo, and said that I was a troll; that’s enough of a prompt for me. 🙂

Lastly: reassurances. I am working on Chuck Made Them Do It, chapter 5 AS WE SPEAK. Or, it’s in its draft form, and sitting on my desk at home. I WILL FINISH THIS UP SOON! I PROMISE! You’ll get it before Monday, I swear!

I’ll be posting some of my brand-spanking-new Sherlock fandom fiction in the next few weeks. I’m still working on my Jim/Sherlock fic I’ve been teasing you about, along with a new one featuring SexGod!John. (Because really, we can all use more SexGod!John).

And King and Consort…? I will be totally revamping that story. The original, King and Companion, got away from me. I don’t know where it’s going anymore, and I don’t know what to do with it. So I’ll be doing major excavation/renovation on it–thus the new title. Sadly, this will take me a while more to totally fix it up the way I will be happy with. I’m thinking… late August? At the earliest?

I love you. Thank you for being so patient with me. I want to hug you all. 😀
