Story Links - June, July and August 2010
Herewith links to stories posted in June, July and August. I'm really not at all happy with my output over the last three months (and before that, to be honest) and the word count. Seventeen stories at at total of 15,395 words in three months is not good at all for me. I wouldn't mind so much if that was seventeen decent length stories, but only one was remotely resembling a decent length, and all but four were under 1,000 words :-(

I have a cunning plan *g* to hopefully increase my output, at least in terms of the number of stories, and hopefully to provide inspiration.

Ooo, cunning plan! Sounds... well, cunning. *g* How is it going? I too am formulating a plan and I see Ashley is sticking to a plan too. Yay for greater creativity! *group hug*

Cunning plan has taken a slight back-step whilst sorting out all the music. Post is put together so new aim is beginning of next week. It's my annual Alphabet 'Drabble' Meme.

Are you now? Plans are good. Happy formulating. She's doing well *g*

*grins too*

I'm not surprised, that was quite a feat! Ooo, Alphabet 'Drabble' Meme! No, I didn't just squee with glee *coughs* ;)

*nods* I don't think I'll be happy until this novel is ship shape - so that's my first priority. Hopefully the rest of my creativity will follow once I'm making headway there. I want to write fanfic again! She is! It's great to see. :)

It was rather. I said to J this morning how weary I felt, he said he wasn't surprised given the amount of 'work' I'd been doing over the last couple of weeks. Have also been sorting CDs into keep and box up and get rid of, plus we seem to both be in a 'sorting out/clearing out' mood, so that's more work and as you know even the smallest thing, like sorting a shelf of CDs is far more work for me than most folk.

Anyway, ADM is now posted. I'm glad you're so happy that I'm doing it *Hugs you*

Good luck with getting the novel into ship shape. I do hope so. Your fanfic is missed.

*nods* Hope you've been taking it easy since and you're fully recovered now. Gosh, yes, lots going on then. *nods* I know hon. *hugs* Promise me you won't overdo it. I know it's tempting once you get started to go through *everything*!

*bounces* Now I'm very happy that the writing is going well. :) Just keep having fun with it and take a break if you're not. /lecture ;)

Thank you sweetie, getting very restless with the amount of RL things getting in the way. Will make a point of taking time to do some today before I go stir crazy about not getting on with it! I need a less busy life. *dreams of a cottage by the sea, or in the hills, with nothing but writing implements, a fridge full of soup, a cupboard full of tea & a head full of characters to keep me company* *g* Aww thanks hon, that means a lot. *huggles*

Now this here is supposed to be my writing icon, but I don't think that's the first thing that catches people's eye. *must find more obvious writing icon* *g*

*More hugs*

Not as easy as I should have, but I've done less. Oh, it certainly is. I'll be good, I promise.

Thank you very much indeed. So far I'm having fun.

That sounds like a nice dream. You are very welcome *Hugs*

I have to say, it wasn't the first thing that caught my eye, I'm afraid.

*and more*

*resists tutting* *g* Oh good.

YW. Yay, good to hear.

*nods* *hugs*

*g* Fingers crossed I should be having some more time for that now. :)
nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 12th October 2010 08:52 (UTC) (Link)
*More for you too*


*More hugs*

I do hope so.
