FANFIC INDEX

It has occurred to me that many people may want to know what a story is about before choosing to read it, so I thought I would create this entry to provide summaries for them. This list is only for the stories that are posted in this journal. You can find my other stories and drabbles at Jackfic.com or at ff.net. This list will be updated as I upload more stories. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy these offerings:

Popping in for a minute...

It's been awhile, but I am still alive and kicking, just super busy with school, family, work, and other obligations that have taken over my life. Not complaining, mind you, just a little bit overwhelmed. :)

Other than all of the above, I am doing well. I'm still taking classes for my degree, and thinking of taking on an extra class next semester to try to speed things up a little. At the rate I'm going now, it'll be another three or four years for me to earn my degree - and I'm technically a Junior!! Some people going to the same university I attend are going to school full time while working full time, and I have to admit I admire them while at the same time taking bets as to when they will end up in a sanitarium. I'm struggling with half time, I can't even imagine going the full-time route with both work and school!! lol

Anyway, if I can get up the money, I'm going to try to add on another class. Because yeah... I really would like to graduate before I'm 90.

Not doing so well with my writing. I've signed up for the stargate_summer Reverse Big Bang, so I really need to get going on that. The artworks for this event were all stunning, and I was able to get my first choice (yay!!), which was very inspiring. I'm really hoping the fic I've decided to write for it does it some justice.

Work life is the same. I still have an hour drive each way, so my commute takes up precious time. Boo! But the paychecks are nice, so it's a classic case of good with the bad. :D

Family is also doing well, although we are in the middle of moving house. Taking our time in doing so, but everything needs to be done by the end of March, so it's time I step it up a notch and get everything in order already. Getting the majority of it done now, will decrease the stress later on.

So yes. I'm still here!! How are you all doing?

Upcoming LJ Events

Been pretty busy lately, and I admit, not very talkative (aka in lurking mode here at LJ), but a few events popped up on my friend's feed and I want to spread the word. Lots of fun things coming up on the horizon!

First off, sg_fignewton has sign ups going on for the next Alphabet Soup! It's kidfic this time around, which can be interpreted in many ways, but I love writing Cassie stories, so I'm going to sign up and see what I come up with. These soups are always a great time and we need authors to make it work, so head on over there and sign up!!

Looks like stargate_summer may be gearing up for another big bang for next year, and is looking to see if there is an interest. Sounds like a good time for me to dust off some of those old works in progress and get them written. :) Head on over to this post and let them know what you think.

fandom_grammar is back in business again after a long hiatus. I'm still writing articles for them, and will hopefully be able to find time to continue with it. We are always looking for topics to cover, so feel free to submit suggestions to the mods via this post at the main comm.

And finally, het_bigbang was a great success! We had several fantastic stories and some absolutely gorgeous artwork which you can check out over at AO3! We had such a great time and I am already anxious for next year's challenge! :D

It's that time of year again!!!

To say that I am excited about this challenge is the understatement of the year. :D This is my favorite big bang community!!

Update and a new challenge coming up!

Hello out there!! I know it's been awhile since I've posted anything, but I have been posting for various communities, and lurking for everything else, so yeah, I've been around. :)

Lots has been going on in my life, with school taking up the majority of my time. The winter semester has just ended so I can take a breather for a bit... well at least from homework assignments. I had a creative writing class and a business communication class, which meant an awful lot of writing. The good news is that the stories and poems I wrote for the creative writing class gave me a decent word count for the getyourwordsout challenge. And the poems I was required to write gave me a better insight on writing in that medium. I still suck at poetry, but at least I have an insight on how to write the stuff. :) There's a lot to be said for writing freestyle poetry. There are no rules, just use poetic metaphors and you're all set.

Yeah. Did I tell you that I still suck at poetry? :)

Anyway, I also now have quite a few more original stories to add to my portfolio, and have possibly broken through the wall I had built up that was keeping me from writing a whole lot. With that said, I hope to be able to get some fandom writings in.

I'm off for the summer, then will disappear during the fall semester again because I've enrolled in a writing intensive English class, as well as a Lit class which usually means a lot of writing all by itself, and I'm still working full time, so I'll be pretty busy. Actually, I've taken all of the University requirements already (except the math component which I'm putting off as long as possible, thank you very much), and am now working solely on the core courses needed for my creative writing major, so every class I take from now on will require a lot of writing. Stressful, but fortunately I like to write. :)

And there's no sense in not writing anything during the summer. I need to keep up the momentum, right? het_bigbang challenge starts tomorrow (YAY!!!) so maybe I will actually finish a story I start for that challenge. I did finish a story for the first year it rolled around, but nothing since, so this year is a good time to get one done. ... I hope. ... *crosses fingers*

Also in fandom related news - I have completely finished all 10 seasons of Supernatural (twice!) and part of the 11th season. I missed a few of the earlier episodes in that season, although I did watch the first two, and everything from episode 9 to present, but I'm still asking myself why I waited so long to start watching that show. Hee! For those who haven't started it, take my advice and GET STARTED ALREADY! :) All of the first 10 seasons are on Netflix, so go for it!! It is definitely a fantastic series and I'm looking forward to next season all ready. :D

Everything else in my life is going well. We have a high school graduation to attend next month, which of course is making me feel old. It wasn't that long ago when I was cradling that kid when he was a baby. Now he's way taller than me, and talking about joining the military. SMH Time flies, I know, but seriously, not so fast, okay?

His sister on the other hand, has two more years to go... that is if she can get her grades up so that she can graduate. I have faith in her though. At least I hope she'll make it. :)

So, what's up with you all? Hope things are going well!!!

Really people??

I finally started watching Supernatural on Netflix last night, and ... OMG!! I ended up binge watching the first three episodes right then and there, and am now fully hooked. *glares at the SPN people on my flist* I have 10 whole seasons to get through. I'll never get anything else done!! :)
