I'm good. Working hard, as ever, and with writing in the mix that makes for a full schedule, even before trying to add in all the other things that go into making a life human.
Have not been checking in here as often as I'd like, so I'm very behind with all your news. I do check my flist when I can, but if there's anything you particularly want me to know, please do feel free to comment or email me at email@example.com.
I have been writing, though! I wrote three fest fics, one for hoggywartyxmas and two for hp_holidaygen, so if you want to guess which ones they are please go ahead. I think one of my gen stories is completely obvious and the other less so, and I will be amazed if anyone guesses the hoggywarty one. But I'm always surprised by what is obvious to other people, so have at it!
I also wrote a couple of other fics which I need to repost here: a Doctor Who story for the utterly lovely eleventyfest (scary, as it's the first full-length Who story I've attempted) and a story for the excellent minerva_fest. I've just realised I'd been rubbish and not responded to feedback for either of those fests. :( Sorry; all I can say is that I've had a hectic year. I think I will make it a New Year resolution to go through and deal with all those lovely comments.
Also, I finished the next draft of my book! This is really why I've been quiet, because I've been focusing on writing that for three or four hours a day, and then making myself do my paid work in the afternoon and evening, so I've been completely wiped out mentally. It is...well, it still needs work, but at least this time I am fairly certain that it needs tinkering with rather than a complete rewrite. Which is what I did between mid-September and last week (a full rewrite), which is why if you spoke to me you probably noticed that I really wasn't with it. I'm taking some time off now, but am itching to get back to it.
I have a new (and utterly lovely) boyfriend, but aside from that there hasn't been much going on, just me trying very hard to get the writing done and earn enough money to get by. I wish that sounded a bit more exciting. :) It's been fun, although I've pushed way outside my comfort zone where novel-writing is concerned.
How are all of you?
