Rough Trade Ruminations

In November of this year, Rough Trade will turn 10 years old. I can’t say I expected my NANOWRIMO challenge to morph into what it is today but overall I’m pleased with it. Sometimes the struggle has been real. As a writer, I think I’ve grown with each challenge, but I think I learned more during the times that I failed.

Let’s Talk About Quantum Banging

I officially “joined” fandom in May of 2008. I’ll be celebrating my site anniversary on May 20th (13 years) and I didn’t do my first fan fiction bang until 2019. I’ve rarely participated in fandom-specific challenges outside of events on Rough Trade. I could go into a long-winded explanation about my reasons for joining fandom, to begin with, and how many of those planned events in the past looked so fucking stressful I could barely breathe at the mere thought of signing up.

Winter 2021

So, I had this epiphany last night. It was empowering, honestly. It’s something I knew on an intellectual level but it’s not something I’d ever really embraced emotionally. Let me lay it out for you: My work is a product of my creative drive and no matter how that is…

Untold Stories & Other Agonies

In 2019, around the end of December, I made this personal goal to write every single day for the year of 2020. I did it for several months before shit got terrible (for obvious reasons that we’ll just not discuss because GAH).

Fall 2020

It’s been a hard year (for everyone) and I’ve had this weird relationship with my writing that I’ve struggled with throughout Rough Trade events. I feel deeply unproductive due to my messy approach to the RT events. It’s not true — I’ve written upwards of 400k this year though most…

That’s a No From Me Dawg

About halfway through July, I took a moment to reset. Frankly, it was a hard reset and it had nothing to do with the story I was writing. I’m actually quite enamored with House of Wolves and will certainly finish it when the inspiration returns.

Website Issues & Hosting

You might have noticed that there have been some loading issues with my site (and the Quantum Bang) this is due to the limits on the server/hosting service we’re currently using. Simply put, the hosted WordPress we’re using can’t handle the size of the two sites or the traffic. I expect it will also be a problem (traffic-wise) for Rough Trade in July.

Summer 2020

Earlier in the month, I made some changes to the site and accidentally broke commenting. I was just trying to keep bots from hitting my comment form like a berserker. I think it’s fixed now! Sorry about that ;-).

Spring 2020

To start, I’ve had to make some changes to my website in response to my very fragile database. I’ve been having issues on and off for the last year, and I’ve tried a lot of workarounds to fix it, but nothing really worked. This morning I woke up, and all of the comments had detached from my posts. They were just free-floating, and it was horrifying. Thankfully, I was able to back up to yesterday and resolve that issue, but this is the fourth time that’s happened, so I had to make a decision about the size of my database.

Winter 2020

So, technically speaking I posted 4 works to EAD this year. I’ve removed three of them. I might replace it with something else. I’m taking a break from the Harmony pairing so I’ve removed the WIPs for that pairing from Evil Author Day and the Wild Hare Project because they’re all subject to massive edits regarding the pairing. I didn’t want to cause confusion later with various versions of the fic existing more than they already do.

2019 In Review

This year has felt super productive for me for a variety of reasons. I’ve written just short of 800k words for the whole year and posted 325k on my site. That seems crazy, in retrospect, but I do have a lot of works in progress—128. We’ve been discussing goals and…

Newsletter Fall 2019

I’ve settled pretty well on Discord for podcast recording. It certainly seems to be working better for the people who can listen to the live shows as well. We’ve also been recording some podcasts without a chat audience and the first Conversation (Jilly Plots her Shifts ‘Verse) is live. We…

Newsletter Summer 2019

Newsletter Spring 2019

I’ve got a full plate! It’s always best to be kept busy and I’m certainly managing that this month (and for the next few months on top of that).  Rough Trade is in full swing for April and the Quantum Bang has been very successful so far. We had 25…

Newsletter Winter 2019

So mostly I’ve been focusing on the Harry Potter fandom and my Quantum Bang story. I’m plotting a Stargate: Atlantis story for April and I’m pretty pleased with my idea so far. We’ll see how it goes. I’ll probably put my NANO project from last year up on the site in the next month or so. It was meant to be a series but honestly I just don’t know if that is going to happen. We’ll see how I feel about it during editing/beta. We’re just 13 days out from sign-ups for April Rough Trade.

Newsletter Fall 2018

I’ve had a very productive year at least in the background. I know there haven’t been a lot of site updates but I’ve got lots of big projects brewing and I don’t like to post novels as works in progress (as you know). This policy is one reason why I really enjoy posting in episode format. It made posting big works like (Sentinels of Atlantis and Harry Potter & the Soulmate Bond) much easier to manage. Still, there is something pretty righteous about putting together a novel like Courting Hermione Granger — it is an entirely different experience than writing a series of episodes.

Working on my plot for the April Harry Potter challenge. I’m on the fence, still, about a WIP or a new story for the challenge but I’ll figure it out by the sign-ups. Hope everyone is having a great month and that the year hasn’t sucked ass so far. New…

Newsletter Fall 2017

Monthly newsletters were starting to feel like a burden which is silly so I’m switching to a quarterly format because I like doing the update part but the content seemed sparse on a monthly basis.
