Share Your World, Week 13, 2014

Do you believe in extraterrestrials or life on other planets? 

Yup.  I swear some of the people I know are extraterrestrials!  Please, let’s just not let our governments in on the secret or they’ll spend even more money they don’t have to try and take over in a place we can’t live.

What type of pet or pets do you not want to have?

I have a budgie.

That’s all I want.  Apartment living is not meant for animals no matter how many of my neighbors happen to think the opposite and have those noisy little so-and-sos who bark at any sound or movement or have the HUGE dogs who really should be out on a farm somewhere so they can run around.  Cats.  Love ‘em but with no place to put the litter box it’s not going to happen.

So, to actually answer the question:  if the animal can’t be contained I don’t want it.

If you were a crayon, what color would you be?

Some shade of purple.  Lavender is nice but so are a lot of the other shades :).

What type of transportation would you be? Why?

Bicycle.  I love to be out and about and visiting and a bicycle allows for stopping and chatting without holding up traffic..  It’s also more economically friendly; leaves a much smaller carbon foot print.

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

My muse seems to be poking her head out of the aether and making small steps towards coming home full time!  YAY!

I’m looking forward to more writing and the nicer weather which is slowly, too slowly, appearing.

Share Your World week 12, 2014

I’ve grown a little lax with posting, obviously, and my muse seems to have taken a semi-permanent vacation so I’m going to try doing some blog challenges to try and get back into the groove and hopefully my muse will come along for the ride.

Once can only hope *sigh*.

Any way I’ve decided I’m going to try the Share Your World Challenge.  The Author posts four questions each week and we have a week to post our answers.  Let’s see how long I can keep this up.

This week’s questions are:

What is your most favorite smell/scent?

I’ve never really thought about it before.  There are scents which just turn me right off like offensive body odor, too much perfume (it doesn’t matter the scent, if you bathed in it, it’s entirely too much), a car burning oil and soured milk.

Thinking about it the only scents that come to mind that I enjoy have to do with the weather and out doors of all things.  I enjoy the smell after a good rain when it’s soaked the parched earth and it’s eagerly drinking it up.  Fresh cut grass:  Allergic as the dickens but I still like the smell.  The ozone just before or after an electrical storm.  Strange, I know, but nobody ever said I was normal :).

How do you write: computer, longhand or other?

I usually write on the computer since it’s harder to lose anything that way.  It’s not impossible as an author I beta for can attest to since I lost one of her chapters over the weekend, then found it yesterday.  I will occasionally write in long hand, and sometimes short hand, but those pages end up at the bottom of my purse, aka the black hole, and are never seen again.

Your favorite blog post that you have written? (add link)

There isn’t just one.  Any of my fanfic recommendations, my recipes, book recommendation, pretty much anything I’ve posted.

What’s one of your favorite books from childhood?

The first book I can ever remember reading is Little House In the Big Woods by Laura Ingalls Wilder.  I couldn’t have been any older than seven or eight when I read it since we  moved here when I was almost 9 and I know it was before that.  I love the whole series though and have it in both physical copy and ebook :).

I also love, LOVE L. M. Montgomery!  The Anne of Green Gables Series, Emily of New Moon, etc.  Of all of Montgomery’s books though I think I like Rilla of Ingleside the best for some reason.

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

This isn’t necessarily last week so much as it is that I’m grateful Old Man Winter is finally breaking his hold!  We’ve had a few gorgeous weather days in the last couple of weeks; they haven’t been as frequent as I want but they have been there.

A friend and I were joking on the way to work this morning that Mother Nature is going through the change of life so the last few years she’s been having hot flashes, now she’s got the shivers :D:D:D:D.

What am I looking forward to in the coming week?  Hmmmm, it’s hard to say.  I can tell you what I’m looking forward to in July but the upcoming week?  Haven’t got a clue.

It’s been a while

Hello all.  I know it’s been a while but I have been busy.  Not much of my own writing has happened since that muse seems to have left the building for now but I have been busy betaing for a couple of people and co-writing with one of them.

I now present you with a spotlight:  With Benefits.

I was always a good girl. All proper and polite, apologies and smiles. You know the type – getting home early, no parties, no smoking, no hard drinking. No sex. That’s how I used to be. And look where it got me. Maybe it was time to stop trying so hard and let loose. Maybe it was time for change. Bill could go f..k himself. I had a better plan. And it didn’t include him.
And, for some reason wordpress severely cut off the rest of my post :(.
Szansa and Więcej grzechów nie pamiętam are her Polish stories.
Please, if you’re of a mind, go pay kardamon a visit and let her know how much you enjoy her stories.

We lost a great one!

It is with profound sadness that I tell you that the world of fanfiction will never be the same.

EricIzMine passed on Tuesday leaving six children ranging in age from toddler to young teen.  There is a Memorial Fund (WordPress is messing with me.  The link is in the comments since it doesn’t seem to want to link in the post.  Yes, I checked to make sure it worked) which her Mom set up to help defray medical and funeral costs.  Anything over and above what must be paid will be going to her children.

She has gone to the big library in the sky where she can write to her heart’s content and earn even more awards for her awesome and inspiring words.

Her stories always make you think, they make you laugh or cry but most of all they were written from the heart.

Angela Vaughn, the great EricIzMine, you will be greatly missed.

Positive thoughts and well wishes are going out to your family and those who knew you best.

I lay my pen down in reverence.

Blah and stuff

Yes, I know it’s been a while since I posted anything; I haven’t forgotten about any of you, honest, but I have sunk my fangs into a couple of stories that I’m co-writing with someone and they’ve been sucking my brain power!  I’m really engrossed in them and will be proud to post the links to the stories once they are up and being posted.

Once is an alternate ending/extension to Straw Dogs (I haven’t seen it) but the story so far is AWESOME and I’m super stoked to be a part of the creative team of two, plus betas, who are putting it together in a more readable form than emails flying back and forth with ideas, suggestions and questions.

The other is a rewrite of one of her old stories since she wants to make it better and we are definitely doing that!  We have plenty more going on on the co-writer front and I have one or two of my own which my muse seems to have a vacation from.

In other words there are more stories to come it’s just taking a while since the muse, bitch that she is, has decided that I will do something else fun and write about something else close to my heart for a while, actually one of the stories combines my love of SVM and True Blood with another love which shall remain a secret for now.
