Since LJ is down, I guess I'll scribble over here. I suppose that cross-posting backup will be in order once LJ comes back up. *shrug* Comments are open - even if you don't have a Dreamwidth account, you can comment. No need to sign in, since LJ isn't working. Just remember to stick your username on comments, of course.

I'm going to toss the slow-moving draft of [personal profile] wiggiemomsi's fic out the window today and start fresh. I think I've been trying to force too much on a draft that's just NOT working for me, and it's causing me to get even more stuck. I'll start new, and hopefully get this puppy moving.

I suppose stopping and starting fresh on a draft is one of the biggest lessons I still need to learn. I get myself so flustered trying to force a piece into being - I just need to accept that sometimes, it's not going to happen. Images and scenes can burst into being, but fizzle out.

Not that I won't save it in the draft folder, of course. I've managed to incorporate a couple scribblings into future pieces. It's not like it'll hurt things by sitting in the folder. That is one of the beautiful things about computers and organizing your files - you can keep these drafts to use for later ideas.


The Honda dealership just called - apparently the leather shift knob I ordered is in. I thought they'd put it on already, actually... and I kind of like the golf-ball waffle one that's on the car. It fits very comfortably in my hand. So I'll take a look and see what I think when we drive over there.

Driving to Newport is always a good thing. I think we'll take the other direction today, though & not do the tolls over the bridge. It's a strikingly beautiful drive that way. But the other way isn't bad, either.

I suppose I'll take advantage of LJ being down and maybe be productive today. :)

As far as real life goes - not much to report. I'm doing a lot of writing and personal editing. I'm playing a lot of WoW. I'm working myself to exhaustion most days. I'm not sleeping well.

Same old, same old.

Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today!

It's been a busy couple weeks - and I'm exhausted and just trying to catch up on things I need to do now, mostly to keep myself sane. I'm looking forward to having a long weekend for Presidents Day. :)

Erich and Matt are off at a Star Wars d20 game today. Now that we're down to only one road-legal car for the household, it means that since they're up in Quincy, I'm homebound. A bit annoying, but I'm making the most of it I suppose. Played a bit of WoW, did some beta work, did some writing, got very yummy chicken wings, and now will be off to do some more writing before taking a late evening nap.

At 2 a.m., my guild will be doing a raid of Stormwind and Ironforge in WoW to finish off the "For the Horde!" achievement (hopefully) and get our war bear mounts. Because our server has a nasty 5 alliance to 1 horde ratio, the only time Horde has a remote chance of completing such quests are butt-ass late at night or butt-ass early in the morning.

So for tonight, I'll be pretending I'm still in college. :)

The long winter's starting to wear on me this year. I don't generally think I have a weather-affected mood disorder, but I'm definitely crankier this year. Tired of being paranoid about falling as I walk to work (I've wiped out twice this winter so far), tired of feeling the cold (it seems to be happening more as I get older), tired of the dry skin and cracked lips and cold sores that go with this time of year.

I'm ready for spring. Or at least to have the snow melt for a little while. I haven't seen bare ground in over a month now. :P The snow we have now fell on New Years Eve.

On the family health front...

Erich's dad is doing much better. Seems to be getting back to normal, and his diabetes is back under control. I think Erich's starting to breathe again.

Let's see... what else lately? Read Pillars of the Earth over the last couple weeks. Surprisingly good book. It moved right along, which was impressive with its bulk. I think now that I've seen a couple of Real Life Cathedrals (TM) I can appreciate the storyline a bit more. Or at least grasp onto it better.

Journey's End is on BBC-A in about a half hour. Debating whether I'll watch it or not. Aside from fic, I've been enjoying being out of fandom the last few weeks.

That's about me, other than a new style egg. :)

- Mel.
