Things I find irritating: demands, expectations, assumptions, and entitlement. I saw a post on Facebook the other day with an anti-Drumpf slogan: Make America Kind Again. I suppose many people see me as a bitch and that’s fine–I come from a long, distinguished line of bitches but I don’t think I’m cruel. Maybe some would disagree but there also the same people who think they have the right to boss me around. Let me be frank, I don’t even let the man who pays my bills tell me what to do.
Anyways, it’s April and our next Rough Trade challenge is in July. And signup will open on June 1 so you have plenty of time to think about participating, whine about the theme, and the challenge requirements in public like I’m going to change them to suit you because you’re special and more important than the rest of us.
Recently, some of the readers who are on the site for Harry Potter and the Soulmate Bond have been pitas (pains in the ass) about my writing schedule for the year and how that impacts THEM. It’s no secret that I plan to work on Sentinels of Atlantis next. I have a fuckton of Stargate fans, easily four times as many actually when compared to the HP fandom. I’d say 80% of my members are here for Stargate. They’ve been waiting for FOUR years for the second season of Sentinels of Atlantis and they’ve been patient that whole time. I haven’t been prodded, pushed, or demanded from regarding the series repeatedly. It’s their turn so shut the fuck up about it.
Also, if you see me online fucking around (and not writing) it is NOT okay for you tell me I should be writing. This is my hobby and I do it for myself. Check yourself, before you wreck yourself.
- I’m on the final chapter of Courting Hermione Granger (you can read the first 11 chapters on EAD).
- I stumbled a little on Phoenix so I’ve backed up to fix something and rework a plot point that my niece wanted but really doesn’t work with the story. She’s kind of stubborn but I think I’ve wrangled her around. It’s surprisingly easy to explain story craft to a kid. I wish adults were that easy.
- I’m Chapter 18 (out of 34) of my Unspeakable Plot rewrite. I hope to finish the editing of that draft to include the Triad relationship I decided I need (out of spite) and use that story for the Mulligan Challenge on RT next April.
