Get up and go

I have spent the last two evenings being dominated by one of my Christmas presents, Simcity Societies, which has sucked up my mind and computer time. It also uses battery power like nothing else! But fun!

I became curious this morning how one tells when one's LJ-versary is, as I see several of my Flist celebrating, and I have no clue when I started, myself. I know it's been a good long while now.

I have made no firm resolutions for this year, but a vague "I think I'll attempt to get someone to publish my book" again (although I'm feeling mighty discouraged about what's left of its bleeding corpse after so many reads, edits, and changes), and a sincere "I'm going to save some money this year." But I think I mentioned that in a previous post. But I worked it out in my head that if I manage to save, and nothing untoward happens, I should be able to buy my new flatscreen TV, cash, in March. I can hang on until then.

I got back into the gym yesterday. Now I'm up and ready to go this morning, although for some reason I'm now starting to drag some.

I still haven't upgraded to Windows 7 nor installed the nifty negative/slide scanner that Barb got me for Christmas. (Of course, both are Projects which take away from my very important goofing off time.)

I haven't written diddly squat since NaNo ended. I may skip it this year and focus on re-editing the last two I completed, since I really have some amount of faith in "The Long Way Home" (2008) and I think with some work I could make something of "Magic Within" (2009). We'll see. I also noted that while there are a few more piddly chapters of "Vampire and Me" that go on and on and on, where I stopped here is actually a good stopping point, so I may call that "the end." The whole thing was a writing exercise, anyway; and the next parts would be major spoilers for "Ring of Fire" if anyone cared.

Hugs and good thoughts!

(And your LJ-versary is the anniversary of your first posting on LJ, or the creation of your account, whichever you prefer. ;-))

Hugs!

Well, I guessed that, but I'm not sure how to determine that without, you know, finding my first post. *g*

That's really what I should be doing, but instead of writing much of anything I'm playing Simcities. Of course, I've been piddling around with a "something" that happens AFTER the recent NaNo story, which takes place some 17 years after "Ring of Fire"...

i was planning to shove it up tonight... or at least part of it.

as open minded as the group says they are I'm still unsure how some of them will react to hard core m/m erotica

Good point, considering some of the gay discussion we've had there. Be an interesting test, though.

yeah and given the reactions to the last one I ran there, some people don't get the genre and I understand that. you might see more of the steampunk

If you go to your Profile Page, there's a little bit of text under your name and LJ title with your journal creation information: Created on 2003-08-02 17:21:39

Ah, so there is! I knew there had to be an easy way.... *g*

My goodness, I passed six years last August! I had no idea I'd been here that long!
