I just couldn't resist - nabbed from [livejournal.com profile] keiliss.


You are The Moon


Hope, expectation, Bright promises.


The Moon is a card of magic and mystery - when prominent you know that nothing is as it seems, particularly when it concerns relationships. All logic is thrown out the window.


The Moon is all about visions and illusions, madness, genius and poetry. This is a card that has to do with sleep, and so with both dreams and nightmares. It is a scary card in that it warns that there might be hidden enemies, tricks and falsehoods. But it should also be remembered that this is a card of great creativity, of powerful magic, primal feelings and intuition. You may be going through a time of emotional and mental trial; if you have any past mental problems, you must be vigilant in taking your medication but avoid drugs or alcohol, as abuse of either will cause them irreparable damage. This time however, can also result in great creativity, psychic powers, visions and insight. You can and should trust your intuition.

And under the cut, I have a ficlet set in the R-E universe for you. Because I know how much you love and miss them. Me too!

Final word count after editing and a first beta. Just got one more beta to go thanks to the incredible [livejournal.com profile] keiliss, then I need a title and a summary.

It's 2k over my longest story. Honestly if there had been another week it would have probably wound up at 15k, would have just let me expand on some things.

Just have the epilogue left, and I've got half the fic to Kei for betaing.

Never cutting it this close again, ever. :| And I am going back to writing short stories.

Getting there. I think this is going to be the longest fic I've ever written. Kei will never beta for me again after this.

This sentence has five words. Here are five more words. Five-word sentences are fine. But several together become monotonous. Listen to what is happening. The writing is getting boring. The sound of it drones. It’s like a stuck record. The ear demands some variety. Now listen. I vary the sentence length, and I create music. Music. The writing sings. It has a pleasant rhythm, a lilt, a harmony. I use short sentences. And I use sentences of medium length. And sometimes, when I am certain the reader is rested, I will engage him with a sentence of considerable length, a sentence that burns with energy and builds with all the impetus of a crescendo, the roll of the drums, the crash of the cymbals–sounds that say listen to this, it is important. - Gary Provost

My story has reached 7,000 words. and it is half way. *weeps* I know I can't get anything done without extensions, but this is cutting it awfully short. I long for the days when 2000 words
was a story.

Thank you anonymous person for the sunflower v-gift! It's gorgeous and it was lovely to get today.

Just plugging along, I think I'm finally getting into the groove of the story now, or working my way in at least. The bad news is that he hasn't even met his prospective partner, which means the story gets longer the more time he takes.

But one thing I'm happy about is my requester asked for heavy on characterization, so I'm like a pig in happily rolling in mud. *G*

Really taken aback at the comments my writer meme entry received. I'm very appreciative and I'm positive that helped the writing process today.

It's a bit like pulling hens' teeth as the saying goes, but it is going. I think Kei might kill me before the end of this one. Just have hit a really rough patch in the personal life, and trying to write on top of it has been difficult.

But, life goes on.

This is my writing life, summed up in a picture. If there was an option for direct brain to paper transfer, I would have easily double the stories. :|

I at least have an idea for it, I just haven't gotten anything on paper yet. I seem to respond well to last minute pressure despite my hopes every year to get the story submitted early.

Say “Me please!” and:
- I’ll respond by asking you five questions so I can get to know you better.
- Update your journal with the answers to the questions.
- Include this explanation in the post and offer to ask other people questions.

These are from Steph. I resolved I'd post them today. :D

Beta: the incomparably fantastic [livejournal.com profile] keiliss
Summary: Lindir and Gildor take an impromptu day trip out in the Valley. Lindir learns a new skill and wonders why Gildor invited him.
AN: written for the Slashy Valentine swap 2011. Poor neglected fic, I should have uploaded it much sooner. I'm really happy with how this turned out though. Gildor's a very specific voice and Lindir's an entirely new one for me. Damn musicians, they're hard to resist.

Lindir hesitated at the courtyard entrance, his bag packed and ready to leave. )

Last call!

For all the fellow procrastinators out there, the Ardor in August 2011 swap sign-ups are very close to being over. (I just finished my request so I'm probably qualified to talk. *G*)

If you've been on the fence about signing up, I really encourage it. It's worth all the blood, sweat and tears and it's a time to really be involved in our little corner of the fandom.

Signups for the swap end tonight at midnight (Kenaz has graciously given a little wiggle room - until Monday evening), so head on over to here to read all the important information and get your request in!

Thought I should maybe update, properly this time.

Firstly, thank you to the kind soul who sent me an anonmynous v-gift. It brought a smile to my face, though I don't know who it is from!

Where to from there? Well, I've picked up another day at my job - officially full time. I really enjoy the people I work with, so it's a plus. With the extra money, I'm thinking about getting a cellphone, I really need one anyway - just trying to figure out which one. The iPhone looks shiny, but I can't really justifying it well enough. :D

Also watched Eat, Pray, Love. I was looking forward to it and I was kind of disappointed with the movie - I didn't care about Julia Robert's character all that much, and the actual world travel parts were too shallow for me. The best part was the section on Italy - but it was too short. It was meant to be a journey of self discovery but I didn't understand her before she embarked on said trip, and I didn't understand her more after. She seemed like an 'every woman' type character, which unfortunately meant that she could have been anyone.

I'm signing up for Ardor in August - it's a great swap, I hope everyone gets an opportunty to try it if they don't have conflicting plans. I'm trying to write more, it's just carving time out of the day.

Anyone else doing the LOTR extended films? I'm so excited about that - I didn't have a chance to see any of the movies in the theater. I think it's going to be epic!
