( brief thoughts on Enterprise, Atlantis, Battlestar GalacticaCollapse )
In other news I haven't quite gotten around to reporting, I'm doing Dramatic Life Attitude Change-y things, with like Goals and Schedules and Accountability and things like that. Also, with a sticker-based reward system and schedules drawn in Crayola and Mr. Sketch, so it is truly the kindergarten approach to maturity. But. Yeah. This prolonged sickness thing has rendered me totally financially dependent on my parents and kinda weird in the head. I need to find a way to maintain as reliable a health as possible (I have a whole other post on "OMG! I figured out what the hell is wrong with me! ... I think", but, bedtime)... while becoming an ADULT AGAIN. So it's all about coping with the future and figuring out how to do that with a condition that probably isn't ever going to totally go away.

However, less attention may oddly result in more fic, because learning and practicing "production writing" ski11z is part of my plan, as 'tis useful for future possible careerness as a trashy romance novelist. And, shock of all shocks, my mother was all "No, you should *totally* practice these skills with fanfic, because you have a built-in audience and support and editors and stuff." Rock on, Mumsey.
And my practice novel? "Second Chances." I'm actually not kidding this time. :) (The inspiration to use this and to add the creativity side into my Life Plan did come in some part for being nominated for the Isis Awards
Today I FINISHED THE EVIL SCENE that completely stalled the forward progress of this novel beast for a YEAR. *celebrates INSANELY* That is so a freaking gleee list in and of itself. I'm writing it again! YAY!!
As it stands now, I've also got time scheduled for smaller fics, still with an eye to honing my wishy-washy inspiration writerness into production I-can-actually-finish-things-and-can-sto
