09:56 pm - Update: work, fandom, writing
*flops into desk chair*

Whew. Okay. So, the one thing nobody told me about marriage was how hard it is to mesh the schedules of two people who have each been single and independent for well over a decade. So, the state of the Izh, in short bursts:


Many of you know that the job I found after my unemployed years has had me writing closed captioning for television shows. This is brilliant; as I tell anyone who asks, I finally conned the universe into paying me for watching TV all day. It is also hard work; 8 hours of almost non-stop typing or proofreading every weekday, and often overtime on the weekends. But it hits two of my deepest buttons: I get to make more stories available, and to a group of people I've been interested in working with since I was a child--the Deaf community.

Well, things just got even better. Our other department describes television episodes and films for the blind and vision-impaired. They are now shorthanded for the amount of work coming in, and so I am being cross-trained to describe. Which means I get to write at work, for my job. And I get screen credit for that. \o/



Okay, so, I am finding very little time for fandom stuff. In fact, little time to watch, which is making me sad mostly because 1) then I cannot discuss with friends, and 2) because Hulu is being dumb about putting up WC episodes only for about a week, and I am still too behind to have caught up! iTunes is getting too much of my money right now.

That said, I am only 2 episodes behind on SPN. I've seen the White Collar mid-finale second part (whoa, so much goodness in there--CAN I PLEASE BE ELIZABETH WHEN I GROW UP?). And my husband has finally gotten me into Castle, which I originally gave up on in its first season because they'd made Beckett so boring. But that has been fixed, in spades, and I love the show now.

I'm waiting for Alphas second season to start.



Technically, the project of the moment is my original novel, which is still nameless (argh). In practice, I am not working on it nearly as much as I ought to. (I ought to be writing that instead of this post, but I miss you all, so.)

Also, one of my friends was just published in a rockin', amazing, glorious thing called Womanthology, which I wish I had been able to contribute to. However! It is now going to become a continuing anthology series, so I am working on three different short comic-book ideas, in case I get another chance. Also because I've wanted to try writing for comics for a long time, and never got around to it.

Last, I said I was trying to write more spiritual blog posts during Lent. That's still going on, just at a much slower pace than originally planned. (See above re: marriage.)


Over and out, for the moment.

I won't spoil but trust me, the finale of S3 in White Collar? Soooo worth the wait :)

Even if you weren't single for very long, marriage is still co-ordinating two people's veried schedules. Nate has different interests than I do so trying to make an evening schedule where we see each other takes some doing.=)

I'm sad that I think I'm so busy I won't be able to do the finishathon this year! I don't even think I should try. :( However, I do plan to keep an eye on it and vote and read and all that.

I perfectly understand that; last year I didn't do it and I was running it!

Though if you could, like, post about it that would help; hardly anyone has signed up so far... 8-(

That all sounds pretty good.

I'm glad that you tagged the entry with the names of the relevant shows. I was pretty sure that WC couldn't be code for a show called "Toilet", but it was good to find out what it actually was. :)

LOL. I think I did also call it by name somewhere in the post, because I had a similar thought.

I have been remiss in properly congratulating you on the cross-training at work. Yay! \o/ Congrats!

I still enjoy Show very much, though it's sad not to have as many people to discuss it with as I once did.

I've often thought of giving Castle a go, though I've never gotten around to it.

Yay for original writing! Though I was lamenting visions!Dean yesterday

Good to see you around. Glad you're enjoying married life. :-)

Thank you! *bows*

You guys would really like Castle, I think. Such teamy goodness, and a great bantery, UST-y relationship at the center of it. Like the X-Files, only with much less creepy gore and much more hilarity.

Aw, visions!Dean. *iz nostalgic*
