Well, I'm sure
you've all noticed it by now... the SUPREME lack of updating that's been
plaguing this page. And I know some of you must be thinking... man!
That girl! She just sucks! It's ok. You can say it.
I know I've sucked at updating recently. But there's some good reasons
for that and here is where I'll tell you some of them (And I'll also give
you a look at some upcoming stuff I'm working on, new chapters, new stories,
Mulder and Scully in the above picture, I've been needing some personal
time to just chill out. (Ok, so maybe I'm not in LA making a movie
about a Lazarus bowl BUT...) In the past few months I've changed adresses,
gotten a new cat, written a million and one papers and short stories towards
my major (anyone else out there working towards a degree ? Yuck!)
and I've also been working day and night at Disney World to pay the bills
(Let me tell ya, the mouse is pretty strict.) Thus, the beginning
of this summer had me experiencing something of a burn-out. I would
either come home from work exhausted and brain-dead or I would go to class
and then ---well, let's just say that I'd spent so much of my time writing
and writing and writing for academic purposes that when I actually DID
have the time to write fanfic... I just didn't want to. I couldn't
bring myself to do it---not even for Mulder and Scully.
that was me... all exhausted.
the good news is that finally, by mid summer, (after many re-watchings
of my friend's copy of "Reqiuem") I felt rejuvinated. I found myself
browsing through the new fanfic out there and I realized how long it had
been since *I* had written something substantial. So I picked up
where I left off with "The Opposite Side of the Moon" and I found myself
enjoying it again. Which brings me to the "status" part of this page:
Opppsite Side of the Moon:
this story is EXTREMELY close to being finished. There are only 2
chapters left and one of those will be the epilogue, so.... Right now I'm
thinking that I could have it done in the next two weeks. It
all depends on how much time I can allot to write the last two chapters.
Although I am still busy with work and school, I don't anticipate it taking
me beyond two weeks to finish.
this poor story. I swear, I was working on it right up until I got sick
of it... and then I just couldn't look at it anymore. Right now I'm
re-reading over some of the chapters so that perhaps I can finish it.
There are a few outlines still in the works but I don't know when it will
be finished (if at all) so be patient with this one.
Dish and the Spoon:
here's the deal. You guys are going to decide this one. I have
a story almost complete (With Diana and all) but when Diana was killed
off on the show, I decided that maybe it would be best to just kill the
storyline. So here's the deal--do you guys think I should post the
story anyway? email me and let me know! If I get a substantial
amount of emails, I'll post the story.
We've Said Goodbye:
this one? I had posted the first 5 chapters and then discontinued
the story due to personal reasons that made it difficult for me to continue.
But now I'm thinking of bringing it back (mostly because I've been working
on some new chapters) and when The Opposite Side of the Moon is finished,
I was going to re-post it on my page. What do you guys think?
Do you want to see it ressurected? Email me and let me know.
for right now, don't forget to have a fun-filled summer! Read some
fanfic, watch some re-runs, but more importantly, go and take time out
for yourself. Catch some rays and maybe... play a little b-ball.
