My brain's offline but I'm still hyper

Look! Look!

I'm not sure if it's quite legit to say that I've actually written that much yet, because all I've written is an (very detailed) outline. But it goes through every scene, start to finish, which is something I've never done before. This whole thing is a different process for me. Usually my stories begin in one of two ways: (1) someone *coughJKRcough* pisses me off and I must write to fix what they've done or (2) I get an image that sticks in my head and won't go away until I've written it. And then I just write and write and write, with an endpoint in mind, but several different paths to get there. This time, it's all mapped out, and it feels ... really damn good, actually! Weird, but good. It feels manageable, which is very important since I'll be away for a full month.

And am I ever excited about this story!! I don't want to give too much plot away, but I will say that when this is finished, I'll have addressed all points of flaildom here.

Even more of the happy today. [info]sdk made me a shiny new header for my LJ...isn't it gorgeous? And after seeing her spiffy new layout I'm inspired to tackle my fic journal too.

Let's see, what else? President Obama was in Ottawa today. He wasn't supposed to have any public appearances (hopefully he just came up to smack Harper upside the head) but apparently he ducked his handlers and went to arguably the worst bakery in the Byward Market to buy (stale) maple cookies for his girls. But he had a beavertail too, so he wins points for that.

I can't imagine what it'd be like to have your consumption of a beavertail make the news.

Now my cat's amusing me by hurling herself off the windowsill, stampeding down the hallway sounding like she's wearing four jacktoe boots, then racing back and catapulting back to the window to start over again. I do believe she's completely recovered from surgery now. ;)

Off to hunt down fic now, and have a lovely Guinness, and rest the brain a bit. Love you all!
