I did it! I really, really did it!
I got second place, twice, in The Villain’s Turn contest with The Men In Black! WOOT!
I am so happy. And proud! And thankful! And very surprised! I enter these contests for the fun of it and to try and coax my muse back from her very extended vacation. It seems she comes back and considers my little stories the vacation. Maybe she’s living with somebody else and comes back to me when I have an idea she considers worthy?
Anywho, this is my first original story. I hope you enjoy it.
The Men In Black wouldn’t have even gotten off the ground without my boyfriend, Breathes. He’s the comic guru in this apartment. I told him about the contest and he was off and running. Thank you Breathes for putting up with my insanity while writing.
Thank you also goes to Natsgirl1 for giving it the once over for me.
Hugs and kisses to everyone who voted for my little story.
First of all; today’s Fanfiction Minions post is up.
If you have gone to the site rather then reading in email lately you will have seen that I’ve made some changes.
I’m still writing; just not exclusively Eric and Sookie and certainly not exclusively in the SVM/TB fandom. Those stories are still in me a little bit but I feel I’ve written all there is for me to write in that vein, especially since so many others do it so much better than I ever could.
I have written a story for The Non-Canon Awards The Villain’s Turn contest. The link will lead you to the first story.
In the last year or so I have written for several contests and had fun writing each of them.
There have even been a couple of crack fics written because of inspiration from someone else’s story or prompt and I wrote Birthday Surprise for the recent Southern Vampire Mysteries/True Blood Fanfiction Exchange. Fairy Tale Amber wrote Pledge To A Viking for me during the exchange :D.
If you want to see all my contest entries they can be found on my Brag Page.
Why am I changing things?
My own focus has gone from writing what I love to reading what I love and I’m hoping to reflect that with the changes.
I am still writing and they will be posted here as time, life and deadlines/voting permit.
I am still posting the bi-weekly updates on Fanfiction Minions.
Any recipes will be posted at Kittyinaz’s Food Group Blog.
Natsgirl1 has reached the end of The Far Reach. I can’t recommend this series highly enough, and that’s not just because I beta it either. It truly is a wonderful idea. The first of the series is Swimming For the Light and the final story, A Distant Horizon will be starting sometime next month.
I will be doing The Ultimate Blog Challenge this time around but I will be doing it over at This ‘N That to help me continue posting over there and to maybe meet others who have varied interests as well.
This ‘n That was started as a way to delve into my other interests without boring those of you who have found me here at SVM and TB Stories. Stories is a niche site and I didn’t want to take away from that plus This ‘n That is my way of paying a small tribute to the late, great Ericizmine.
As most of you know she had many interests and her interest was shown in her writing. Well, the first story of hers I ever read was Sinners and Saints and there is a line in there where Sookie is asked what she’s been up to. Her answer was ‘A little of this and a little of that’. The web address is lilathisnalilofthat as the tribute.
I’m getting distracted by new and shiny so I’ll sign off for now and see you in a lil bit over at This ‘n That :).
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
The Far Reach has a new chapter up.
Natsgirl commented about the season already showing signs of changing. I thought it was just me that was seeing the signs so early. I guess it wasn’t.
I didn’t want to jinx it because I LOVE summer! No snow, normally no ice and it used to mean more temperate temperatures here in Ontario, Canada.
We moved here 40 years ago this November. I was 8 years old. The seasons were SO different then!
Winter meant snow and ice, ice skating, hats and mittens and boots. Now? Not so much. Now it’s more likely you’ll have the extreme cold (-40 anybody? -40 is the same in Centigrade and Fahrenheit). When it’s that cold the snow doesn’t come. We’re more likely to stay inside where it’s warm and comfortable than go outside to enjoy what the season has to offer.
Summer used to mean sunshine AND rain, warmer (not hotter) temperatures, picnics and days at the park. Now it’s more likely we’ll find a nice cold mall or restaurant where we’re uncomfortable simply sitting and relaxing because the temperatures have climbed into the triple digits (unheard of not so long ago in Canada) for days on end with no relief in sight.
In 1975 there was no humidity to speak of, now that seems to be what summer is about sigh.
I could have sworn we left all that behind when we moved from the southern states. I guess I was wrong since Ontario feels more like home each year that goes by. I don’t mean because I’m finally calling Canada home, I mean because our weather patterns are becoming more and more in tune with Georgia, Tennessee, Alabama, Florida and the rest.
Last week our highs were in the high 70’s with little humidity. Today we will be triple digits including humidex.
It’s going to be a long week.
This will be my last Updates post here at SVM & TB stories. I will continue to post them at Fanfiction Minions so you all can keep up on your stories :). I will still post the odd review, reblog or Press This and I will continue to let you know about contests and votings but posting the same thing on two sites is a little redundant so, since Fanfiction Minions was set up to let readers know about updates in multiple fandoms that is where I will continue to post them :).
What will I be doing here instead? Glad you asked. I’m going to get caught up on all those recipes taking up space in my inbox. And all those book reviews as well. I’ll also hopefully be able to do some writing, continue on with my beta work and hopefully spend some time on This ‘n That and get it up and running again.
It’s been a blast getting all these updates out to you but it’s time I move on to other things…still within what this site was set up for. Who knows. Maybe I’ll be able to find other Eric and Sookie related stuff to send on to you 🙂 ;).
