Today's update

Posting three days in a row? CRAZYSKATES! But I'm enjoying the exercise so I'm going to continue even if my life is less than thrilling atm.

Quite likely the longest post I've ever written

There is way too much to update, and I don’t know where to start – and as it turns out, I know some of my friends don’t even know what is happening or where I am, since I’ve been so sporadic about updating stuff. So maybe I will do this with numbers. Yes, that’s a good idea.

Morning blues

It's just gone six in the morning. I've been up for an hour. I woke up from a vividly awful dream in which AWZ had cast a faux-Marc who wouldn't even fool soap viewers. Then I indulged in lovely, soul-strengthening comments on our blog from people who believe in us. Now a man is singing drunkenly in the street outside. And something we all love ended today.

In some parts of the world it's St. Patrick's day. Here it's just a very interesting start to Friday.

ETA: A start? Screw that. I'm going back to bed.

Trees, jetlag, thingy & the other thingy

I’ve been in New Zealand for a little over two weeks now. Sometimes it feels like I’ve only just arrived; other times like I’ve been living here forever. I thought I should try to record some of my impressions and thoughts for later; they might not be interesting to anybody but me, but I suspect that looking back on them a year from now will make me smile.

Crazy days

[info]aldiara and I just wrote 21,000 words in three days!!!!

I have houseguests arriving for a fortnight on Thursday.

My apartment's so messy that it makes Withnail's look pristine.

I have a typically nutty work schedule between now and Wednesday, which will leave no room for cleaning or sleeping or anything else.

One of said houseguests' birthday is Wednesday, and I have only finished knitting one of her gloves.

I need to somehow learn German in the next three weeks.

Strangely, I've reached a state of zen about all this.

Did I mention 21,000 words?

*falls over*

Weekend update

I hope you're all having a lovely weekend. Mine's been pretty fab. I had a great dinner and lots of good conversation last night with [info]deakat and [info]paraka. I really love being around people who live fandom, who are always thinking about how it works and how to make it grow -- not just the followers of a particular show or a genre, but the fandom world as a whole. I'd been debating writing something about what fandom means to me -- it's truly changed my life to find a community with so much talent given freely, motivated not by profit but (in the case of writers) by a real passion for storytelling, who create stuff at a level that often exceeds published writers, but who do it out of pure enjoyment and love. The whole topic has seemed such a daunting task, but after talking to [info]paraka last night those ideas are percolating. Even if I never write anything of it, helping make sense of it in my mind is a good thing, I think.

All that's been in light of EKP reaching SEVEN THOUSAND SUBSCRIBERS.

This is just an inconceivable number -- we're getting ever closer to filling the Ottawa Civic Centre! *cackles* Oh, how I would like to try that!

Now I'm getting ready to send off my latest writing and then do something fun like, oh, clip my cat's claws. I got my new futon cover (YAY!) and it looks AWESOME and I don't want it shredded like the last one was.

What an exciting life I lead.
