real life: Swimming season has started! I bargained my dad up to 8 am (6:30 is too early when I work 'til 9). Despite my sticker-sheet for working-out-ness, I suckered out mid-lake to spare my shoulders. I have great plans to be swimming a mile within the week and then push for more, but I will probably have to sit on the sports-training part of my brain before I burn myself or my shoulders out. Swimmiiiiiiing!
real life being overrun by fandom: I managed to resist writing lots and lots of atlantis!swimming!fic last summer, and will attempt to do so again, but just for the record, I totally daydream about doing distance swimming around Atlantis while I'm in the water. Come on, admit it, it would be really cool. No, I don't just like this show because they're entirely surrounded by water, promise...
fandom being overrun by real life: Whether or not it should, it really bothers me that I've been too
I dislike this because my brain is totally empty of creative thoughts. It's weird that I feel only half myself when I'm entirely focused on my own life and not, you know, the lives of fictional people... but I do. (Plus the "OMG I am USELESS to my online circle of friends!" feeling, which rosewildeirish bapped me for and which, yeah, if you're only here for the fic, I trust you're used to skimming by now. Sorry.) The hope is that, having complained about it, it will magically fix itself to spite me, as things like this are wont to do. (I'm on to them! I will use their tricks against them!) Failing that, and since "writing" is on my list of priorities to keep in mind, I'll come up with a better system when things slow down or I speed up. :)
and now for a word from our sponsor: "Suggest me something to write!" has been temporarily put on hold, since it didn't work. But I have an hour before bedtime. So... suggest me an episode to watch! I've got Atlantis, TNG, DS9, Stargate and, er, seasons 1,3,5 of Babylon 5! And I might be assed to dig X-Files out on VHS. Yay for foisting Non-Important Decision-Making off on others!
