09:40 pm - Quick life/work/writing update
Well, today was pretty good, if odd and unroutine. I finally moved offices/computers at work, as a necessary prelude to actually being trained in my new duties. I also got a half-hour demonstration of some of the new systems I'll be working in. And I finally have voicemail, after 2 1/2 years at this company! *cheers*

No raise yet, though.

I just got my assignment for the Why Can't We Just Be Friends? Ficathon, and am slightly panicked. Out of six prompts, I know 4 fandoms, only one of which have I ever tried to write for, and not for the specified characters! Egad. This'll be a stretch. (I'm actually most worried about getting my hands on materiel for fannish research. Eeep.)

And I really need to get cracking on some of my other writing. *sigh* CSI spec script needs work. Really, really does. And I still have the next chapter of Never Fade Away to finish. I know, jd3000, darmok47, scorptilicus, I'll work on it. I will!

Heh, with mine, I only know three of the fandoms, and have only written in two of them before. And two of the prompts are for situations I don't know anything about. Well, I guess that makes it easy to decide which one I'll be writing for, though I'm not sure about the prompt for that one either.

I think this just demonstrates that it was probably rather difficult to make assignments for this one. At least it's only 500 words minimum.

No joke. :-) Well, I'm sure I can manage 500 words...

Oh, yes, I expect so.

It's just that my VISA is waiting impatiently for more money to pay it off. Heh.

Hey! I dreamd about Due South last night, or at least in my dream I thought the show my friend was watching (on an old black and white TV) was Due South. (Upon waking I realized the characters I'd actually seen on the screen were Magnum and Jack O'Neill, but hey, dreams are weird.) Which was odd, since I've seen about 1 1/2 episodes, long long ago. :-)

It's a sekrit assignment, until the stories are done and posted. Sorry!

Dow! :-)

I've just had the most incredibly bizarre and amazing idea for a set of fanfics EVAR...but it would only be absolutely truly enjoyed by a denizen of HereWhereILive. :-D
