Writing kinda rocks...  
I'm writing again! Yay! Feels good to just get this out there right now. smhwpf is a star for answering my "I suck, tell me I don't suck?!" panic attack yesterday *huggles Sam*, and thank you all for giving me these prompts! I'm probably going to be doing this again soon - it's a lot of fun!

So, from the prompts so far, we have:

Claire Bennet, Red for bastardsnow
Dawn Summers, Green also for bastardsnow (greedy... *g*)
Willow Rosenberg, Purple for velvetwhip
Dawn Summers, "Colorforms? What?" for tessarin
Sam Winchester, Pink for engelsteorra
Kaylee Frye, "You can't take the sky from me" for invisionary

The rest will be coming soon! Plus, I had originally planned to do ficlets and graphics for all of these (I know, I kept that kinda quiet) so all of these will be re-visited within the week.


smhwpf - you should have TotF back now, if you don't, lemme know! Sorry again for the hold-up. And emeraldswan - got the email, will be working on it tonight. *hugs*

Lesson of the day: one cannot take a 110° corner at 60 mph in fourth gear whilst drumming along with OCS's "The Riverboat Song". *nods*
Lesson #2: Don't leave baking until the last minute. I made chocolate chip cookies, raisin cookies, gingerbread christmas trees and chocolate brownies last night to bring into work (we're not going out for a meal this year, we're having a 'party' in the office instead). The only thing that is actually edible is the chocolate chip cookies. I can cook, really, but not at the last minute apparently...

Great to see you writing again!

*hugs back*

On the subject of fic, and places where fic is posted, can you think of any good LJ communities where I might try posting my fic? 'cos right now, no-one ain't reading it by the looks of things!

It's good to be writing again - without the pressure of NaNo's deadline, although that really helped me a lot I think - just getting stuff onto paper (or into a word doc) and not agonising over every word choice until it's done. Which is why it's not actually appeared anywhere online yet, first, it's not finished (or it's not quite at a stage where I could call an act break) and second, it needs edited. A lot.

Community's to post to... Hmmm. That's a tough one actually, I would post a comment to su_herald with a link each time you post something, it may not be picked up (it depends on the editor that day whether they include things or not and a lot of the time they're personal tastes dictate that.

Would you mind if I make a post asking my flisters for suggestions? There's a whole bunch of folks from a variety of sections of the fandom that might have some ideas?

Key girl's a mommy! Yay!

Awesome. I loved both of mine. Thanks much!

*g* and I'll leave it up to you who the daddy is...

I'm so glad you liked them! I had a lot of fun writing both of them!

OOh! Sounds like your going to be a fanfic writing fool. (: And Mara you definately DO NOT Suck. I think your a very good person.

thank you!

One of the as-yet-unposted ficlets I was working on yesterday kinda exploded on me and is now four pages long. *shakes head* How come I struggled so much at the start of NaNo?! :)

Absolutely love mine , wasn't what I was expecting it was so much better!! I just have this wonderful image of a cold and perplexed Dawn in the Himalaya's . Imagery is just really great.

Really picked me up after the horrors of christmas food shopping today.

Thanks so much:-)Going to read the others now.

Yay! I'm so glad you liked it! I couldn't shake the image of Dawn being so determined that she could cope with the whole thing and yet being a little flumoxed at the same time!

(I have to go present shopping still. I'm planning on being at the shops by 9am tomorrow (Saturday) think I'll make it home by lunchtime? *g*)

You're braver than I am . I specifically ensured I wouldn't need to go in tomorrow. Have fun :-)

I'm so glad you liked it! It took a much darker turn than I expected it to there!
