In Memory Yet Green
... aka an open letter to my flist and anyone else who wanders in here from reading my fic or either of my two muses. ^_^

This post may sound like an apology for Taking So Long with my writing (and it is, a little), but I'm really taking a moment to assess my fanfiction works in progress and other online projects. RL has kicked my butt in some respect, and I have kicked it's in others ... but I'm currently searching for a happier, preferably non-kicking equilibrium.

I did get "Alternative Therapies" done on time for the Month of Love over on adama_roslin. Of course, that short story has proven to be merely the opening of Yet Another Work In Progress. *headdesk*

1. Gods' Gift (the YAWIP to end all YAWIPs)

2. Gossip (I don't even want to think about how overdue this puppy is!)

3. My Cottle-centered fic (MEGADITTO)

4. My fanfic100 pieces for William Adama (I'm surprised they haven't handed him off to someone else yet!)

5. Continuation to Alternative Therapies (aka my sequel to Essence)

If you think of any others I've forgotten, let me know. *whimpergiggle*

In addition, neither admiral_adama nor kia_holtz has had new posts in many weeks. I'm on a mod-approved hiatus, so there's no danger of me losing a muse. However, both Bill and Kia are very forceful personalities, and they're both giving me a brainful about not keeping up with their prompts. *wince* On the other hand, Bill has been mostly mollified by the ongoing RP thread between himself and laura_roslin. 8^9

I have also fallen way behind on comments and replies, on my friends' journals, my muses' journals and my own. I am entirely too far behind on responding to comments and reviews about my fic. This pains me, because attention hoor that I am, I would never want you wonderful folks to think I don't adore and devour all your comments like candy. I care deeply about what you have to say, so please keep saying it! I will respond eventually, I promise!

Now, the GOOD news is, I have some vacation and paid holiday time coming up, so I get to catch up on many things. Sleep will have to be the first, but my online projects will follow right behind.

Along with some apartment cleaning ... *^_^*

So, as a small reward for your patience, I offer the music meme that nnaylime's enjoying so much. ;)

Reply and I'll give you a random letter, and you have to find five songs that start with that letter and post them to your journal.

I quickly discovered that most "E" songs start with the letters E V E R ... y'know, ever, every, everything, everlasting, everybody ... but I found a few exceptions!

Eolian Minstrel -- Andreas Vollenweider
Everything I Do (I Do it for You) -- Bryan Adams
Electric Cafe' -- Kraftwerk
Ever the Same -- Rob Thomas
Every Kind of People -- Robert Palmer

And here's some comic relief as a little extra:

Ernie Had a Hernia -- Toy Dolls

*squishes Chris* And we only poke you with the stick cause we care!

btw *curious* is Brandon still comin' to Sydney?

*squishes back* Keep poking ... you'll get results eventually. ;)

Yes, he is! He leaves here on the 17th of August (your 18th) and returns on the 8th of September, his birthday. He's quite chuffed about having his birthday for two days this year. ^_^

Anything you and Alana would like that I can send with him? 8^D

Oh, I do love my job, definitely, but it is Very Demanding. O_o

Lessee, you've already had L, G and W, so I shall give you T. And titles beginning with "The" don't count. ;)

*huggles back* It was good to see you too, even if I have developed the embarrassing habit of falling asleep in my comfy computer chair during chat. *^_^* I'm doing okay in general ... mainly dealing with fatigue issues while I try to juggle job/husband/writing/other needed tasks/other stuff I wanna do.

And when I next have something at a beta-able stage, I'll definitely let you know! Though I have this other embarrassing habit of dropping my stuff on people for last-minute betas. ;)

Hey there. I hear ya on the RL and falling behind on Comments, etc. Also, with the exception of Bill and Laura's Date-fic ;) and the new Season 3 promo pic, I've found myself rather bored with BSG-related stuff. Vacation sounds like a good idea. I'd really like to take an entire week off and just spend it on the beach.

I'm also with you on the apartment cleaning. I met a woman who is, among other things, a professional organizer. She's too expensive for me, but just talking to her made me want to get my home more organized.

Anyway...I hope you get caught up on everything you want to do. :)

Organization ... such an elusive concept in my life! I'll see if I can get a bit closer to it over the next few weeks.

BSG boredom hasn't hit with me yet. I suppose that's what channeling a battlestar commander/fleet admiral will do to your brain. O_o I am also grooving on the new promo pic. We'll see what color Bill and Laura's hair *actually* wind up as this season. ;)

::happy pony tail dance for vacation time::

no sad puppy eyes here, nope, patient as a clam, I am

*chuckle* Well, I haven't finished the fic yet (though that will change. ;), but at least the character you helped inspire has taken on a life of her own over on kia_holtz. Very insistent, she is!

Holtz? Dutch for woodland ... or forest. ^_^

:: flabbergasted & SO tickled ::

Did you put something about this on your LJ, cause I missed it, but O wow! You are amazing ... I can't wait to read, darn work!
9th-Aug-2006 03:34 am (UTC)
I didn't make an announcement on my personal LJ, no. Kia got her intro over on thesmokingdoc, and that's where I'll announce new ficlets as I post them on her account. I'm *so* happy you like her! *glee!*
9th-Aug-2006 06:16 am (UTC)
running to sign up for thesmokingdoc So I can keep up!
