Okay, it's been a really long time since I've come over here. I was trying to keep up on everyone's posts and reply when I could but that turned out to be much harder than I thought. It's tough making myself sit down at a computer screen at night, after I've spent all day sitting at a computer at work. I can even watch TV (which is crazy cause I love TV)! I've got about 6 episodes of Fargo DVR'd and at least that many of Turn. I have no idea when I'll get to them...

I did dig up a half-written SGA story I've got on my hard drive and read through it. I was surprised - it's not half bad! Now if I could just figure out how to get my bum in my seat for enough time to do some typing... I also had this great idea (in the shower - where so many great ideas are born) about another SGA story. Might have to get out the dust rag and clean up my little corner of SGA fandom. There's still some life here! Oh yeah... sitting... and typing...

I got a new Kindle recently and have been reading a handful of the free kindle books. A lot of those free ones... I'm sorry - they're terrible. But then that gets me thinking: if they did, why am I not doing this? I could totally do this! And reading bad fiction is helpful (to a degree) on what NOT to do in my own stuff. I occasionally get all excited about writing while reading these terribly written novels, but oh yeah... sitting... and typing...

Wanted to say hello to everyone! It's been a long time. I would say I'm off to go write but I just picked up the new Dresden Files book (and I learn a lot from really good writing too), so I will probably be doing that for most of today. :)

Because apparently, everyone I know on LJ has a birthday in October, and I haven't been over here in weeks (so many unread messages in my inbox, most of which were "So-and-so's birthday is October XX.")

Happy belated birthday, my October friends! My insane crazy schedule where I had something going on almost every weeknight and every weekend day for literally ten weeks straight, on top of working full-time, is finally over. Now maybe I can do some other stuff, like catch up on LJ every once in a while, and not miss birthdays. :)

It has been soooo long since I've posted anything over here. I'm still around! Maybe not quite as frequently as I used to be but I still at least try to read what other people have been doing and saying every couple of weeks or so. First things first, hello!

Second, I moved a little less than two years ago to the DC-Baltimore area and have made a small group of friends here, but I'm feeling like I need to expand that circle a bit. I've made such great friends here on LJ though, that my first thought was to look up a Stargate themed group or meetup out here, or even a Hawaii 5-0 one! I did not find any. :( I did find a few general Scifi/fantasy groups that could fit the bill though.

But here's the thing - it's a little intimidating to show up at a get-together without knowing anyone there. There's no doubt in my mind that everyone would be more than friendly and welcoming, but still. I'm a little on the shy side so this is a little nerve-wracking. Has anyone ever joined up with an in-person fan group before? What was your experience like? Any suggestions for me?

Hope everyone's doing well! I will try not to go months on end again without popping over here to say hello.

The number of spam comments I've gotten on some of my old LJ entries has grown to excessive amounts! It's driving me crazy! I know I'm not the only one having this issue. I hate to take away anonymous commenting, because I do hear from a few people who don't have LJ journals and I appreciate hearing from them. And as this past weekend has shown, spam isn't restricted to just anonymous posters.

The only solution I can come up with then is to lock a few specific entries from future commenting. It seems to be the same half dozen entries that get all of the spam, so hopefully this will stop the flood for a little while. If a legit person wants to leave a comment to some of those entries, please send me a DM or something - I still want to hear from you! I just don't want Ugg boots, down jackets, prescription drugs, and 15 secret admirers.

If anyone else has any ideas on what to do about this, please let me know! The spamming is getting ridiculous!!

Guess what, guys?!! I actually WROTE this week! First time in... uh... eight months or so? I've really been missing it lately and finally forced myself to break out the pen and paper. (Actual pen and paper - I went old-school!) I spent about a half hour a day on it, although I got a bit excited and went longer on a few days.

I managed to get almost 3,000 words down! Yippee!!

Hello friends!

It's been so long since I've posted anything over here, it's almost appalling. I'm still alive! I started a new job, and even though it's not all that different from my old job (as a business editor), starting is always a little stressful and exhausting. On top of that, my commute is much longer, which has been eating into my free time like crazy. I really haven't done any writing in the last six months, which is so sad to me. I miss it!! I still have plenty of ideas I want to write, but it's just a matter of finding the time (and energy) to sit down and do it.

Summers are always so busy. Why do I still think summers will be more relaxed than the rest of the year? They never are. Between hockey, softball, and visitors coming through town, my evenings and weekends most weeks were just gone. And then the Olympics started, and I was pretty much glued to the TV every waking minute I was home. It's been a fun summer, but boy, am I tired. I need to stop signing up for so many activities... :)

To end the summer, I am moving!! Not far. It's literally two miles down the road, but moving is hard work no matter how far you go. I'm staring at my desk right now thinking I should start packing some of this stuff up, but I still have six days, right? Oye. I'm very excited for the new place (and very excited to get out of the current place). I'm losing two roommates: one who never cleans anything and one who is sadly so insecure she does all these manipulative things to get attention. (These are fully grown women in their 30s, mind you. Thought people eventually outgrew this kind of stuff and learned to clean up after themselves, but apparently not.) I will only have one roommate, we will each have our own bathroom, and she is clean!!! She is so, so clean. So the next couple of weeks will be hectic but then... heaven!

Hope everyone is doing well! I have hardly been online all summer and I know there are stories out there I need to go back and track down and read. I will get to them eventually! I promise!

Saw this in a couple of places and thought I'd try something similar.

The Stats:
8 SGA stories
140,000 words

Slightly more than last year, thanks to November's 50,000 words of SGA. I've got about 30K down on another story (with much, much more to go on that one), so while I did technically write it in 2011, it won't get counted till next year. :)

Hope you all enjoyed the stories! I always have fun writing them, but it is great to hear other people's reactions and comments. Keeps me motivated to continue writing! Sometimes in the middle of a story I think, "No one is even reading SGA stories anymore," then you all pop in and say hi, and I get all excited and start plotting the next adventure. To all my wonderful readers, hope you had a great holiday season and here's to an awesome 2012!
