If you friend me, please comment if you'd like to be friended in return, as my standard practice is to only friend people I've exchanged a comment conversation of some sort with. If you're happy to friend and see very few of my posts, go for it, but I won't be friending you back unless we've chatted!

I don't actually bite, nor am I as standoffish as it might appear, but I'm probably a sandwich short of a picnic, in case this affects your interest in my journal. I also have the world's worst memory, but I always reply to comments if it seems called for. Feel free to poke around what little is visible.

Oh, and all my fics are housed at [livejournal.com profile] haldoor_honey because that's the way I roll. They are open to the public for the most part. Feedback and followers there are always welcome. I don't usually friend back there, but that's only because I don't follow the flist attached to it. ;-)

Someone asked recently, so I decided I needed a reference post here.

So I think I can write fan fiction? )

I am so behind and trying desperately to catch up on things I owe. This is the last [livejournal.com profile] 1_million_words weekend challenge reward that I owe from the last time I promised things... we won't even say how long ago that was. :-P

These are three icons from The Flash for [livejournal.com profile] helsinkibaby, who asked for Joe and Caitlin together if I could. Not great, but here's what I came up with:

    


Could not resist that last one when I saw it, being the Lego fan I am. ;-)

And now I've played with a different program for the creations for Week Two of August Rush; still not sure about the results, though some I'm happier with than others.

Once again I give you ten icons in The Flash fandom )

And onward to Week Three and perhaps I'll go to yet another program to see how I do with that! ;-)
haldoor: Kaige and I like to jump off bridges one after the other; not always in the same order (1MW-august rush)
A bit of a delay, but here are my first five days worth of icons for August Rush (all 'The Flash'). They're not all that good, but I probably used the wrong program. I'm gonna try a different one for the next week.

Under here )

I'll post the next five days soon.

Hey guys, if you write fanfic, check out this link for information about a site called ebooks-tree.com, that is scraping our fanfic from A03 and, by the looks of it, charging people to download it. THIS IS NOT ACCEPTABLE. While I'm happy to give away my fic at A03, I certainly did not authorise e-books to give away or sell my work.

The link above gives you advice on what to do to request they take your fic down from the site. A bunch of people, including published authors, have been told about this, and most of the people I know have emailed to complain and request their work is removed from this site.

I have seen names of some of you there - [livejournal.com profile] zelda_zee, [livejournal.com profile] gottalovev, and others, check it out and make sure you add your voice to the complaints.

I am behind on my target word count for the year and I am trying to get as many words counted tonight (my time) for [livejournal.com profile] 1_million_words' total target of 15 million for the year, so I need your help!

If you would like to help me, leave your prompts here! Please make them 1-3 word prompts only (whole sentences/ideas tend to bring on far more than drabbles, and this is all about short fic today!), and you may suggest a fandom and/or pairing if you know the kind of things I write and want a specific fill, but feel free to just leave it open and general if you don't mind, as that will make it easier for me.

Go, now! As many prompts as I can fill with drabbles on up to comment fic-size short pieces before I hit the hay tonight is my aim, although I am at work right now and may not actually start until later this afternoon. THANK YOU!

Grrr!

Oh, poo! LJ is being a bitch. I can't post to [livejournal.com profile] 1_million_words and I need to! This would be my post for the daily challenge:

I am made of fail. I did not do any words. I am now too tired to do words. I pass the Daily challenge on to any of the do-over people who need to make words. I'm sorry I can't find who you are as my LJ is making excuses for not behaving properly and I'm not even sure this will post properly, so I'm off to bed. Maybe I'll do better tomorrow too.

My positive meme continuation is not going well, so thankfully I did the five days anyway. I got nothing right now, because it's been a stupid evening.

Because apparently when I can't write, I make silly icons:

I was supposed to be writing this weekend, but couldn't wrap my head around it. Instead I've spent a couple of hours making icons. I said in a previous post that I really needed a 'sleepy' icon, so I searched out some pics of people and animals sleeping and then cropped and played around with different parts of the images I found.

Under the cut are the results )

And tomorrow we're off to pick up the kids from their visit to the rellies. We'll stay overnight and be home Sunday. So catching up with flist will have to wait until Monday, when I am on HOLIDAY FOR TWO WEEKS, woohoo! I'm so pleased to be having some decent time off after having worked through Christmas and New Year (in between the stat days, that is) when everyone else was taking their leave. ;-)

And Hubby's well on the way to recovery - he's walking without the moon boot when he can, and tonight I took him out to buy some sturdy summer sandals so he has no excuse to be wandering around in jandals any more.

And I made these )

Oh, and I still haven't figured out the CSS to get my banner back in my header, so if anyone's an expert out there... please help!

Jeez, what am I doing here when I should be in bed?

I guess it has something to do with Being Home Alone. ALL WEEKEND! The cats and I have had the best time catching up on stuff we don't usually do. Okay, the cats usually do the same stuff every day, and let's face it, I pretty much do too ;-) but it's so cool not to have to worry about what everyone else is up to, nor put up with kids arguing, Hubby fussing about money, and everyone interrupting me when I'm trying to write.

Now, I wonder if I can write some more words tomorrow. 1192 so far this weekend, and all of it on a one-shot that's new. I have so many WIPs that it's not funny. My one aim for 2014 is to finish as many of them as I can.

Oh, watched quite a good movie tonight too: 'Devil'. It's an M. Night Shyalaman (sp?) one - he likes his twists. Okay, it's not his best, but I was intrigued and it was kinda creepy, and psychologically freaky there for a bit.

Probably time I got some sleep now! :D

I've been working hard all month on getting the pics up at the August Rush Challenge at [livejournal.com profile] 1_million_words, so I haven't been writing as much as I often do, but I managed five banners for the first two weeks of the challenge, and decided that I'd do another five that spoke to me for the second two weeks as well.

My first five (one for each fandom) are here if you want to see them and missed them earlier.

The second five - again, one for each fandom )
haldoor: Kaige and I like to jump off bridges one after the other; not always in the same order (1_mill_words-august rush)
yesterday, I wasn't feeling the words, but I had time to play around with some graphics, so these are what I came up with from the pics I'd chosen over the last couple of weeks at [livejournal.com profile] 1_million_words August Rush challenge.

Here be five banners - I've chosen one pic for each fandom from random days; just whatever appealed to me as something I could caption )

I know I owe comments! God knows where the time goes! I'm so sorry! I'll get to it tomorrow if I can! On the upside, I have a new pair of sweatpants, a new tape measure and a rubber stamp that says 'made with love especially for you'. The kids also got new clothes, and I made cheesecake for dessert (didn't look like icon though!) as a late b'day celebration for N1D who turned 17 this week (OMG, where does the time go?).

More in due course. *love and hugs all round*

I'm WAY behind on everything again. Work is madness and home life just seems to have more things to do every day, which is not a bad thing, but it doesn't make writing or online time easy to find, but...

I'd love to invite you all along to [livejournal.com profile] 1_million_words, the comm I co-mod with [livejournal.com profile] kaige68, if you have writing time to spare and/or would like to take part in a really friendly, fun-loving, word-loving, graphics-loving, and encouraging place! Our membership is growing daily, and we've already cumulatively outdone the year's target of [livejournal.com profile] 1_million_words and are now aiming for TEN MILLION WORDS by the end of 2013, so come on over and play! There's no pressure, no imposed targets, no compulsory activities and absolutely no need to do anything unless you want to! Slash, het, gen; any and all fandoms; everyone's welcome! Check your dramas at the door and come in for while! ;-)

There's support, encouragement and resources on offer, and plenty of prompts and challenges, as well as fun and friendly people to share your fics and pics with!


one single step-fairyniamh


Do pop in for a visit and browse the shelves; if there isn't anything you like there, feel free to walk away, but if you like the idea of contributing to the word pile we're making and/or you need inspiration to get onto creating fics and/or pics, perhaps you'll stay and join us. We'd love to have you. There is no downside! ;-)

PS: If you're already a member but haven't contributed yet (or for a while), come on back for a visit!  There's no shame in being busy.  Any and all words you've posted somewhere count, or if you're working on WIPs you don't want to post until they're done, that's all good too. Count them in our WIP count, and add them to the posted count in due course!

YES! I am still alive. I have things and stuff going on, and to say. I still haven't caught up on flist and I feel bad about that. I watched Jacob & Paul SPOILER ) on The Following last night SPOILER )

I will try to get back in the next day or two and catch up/post/do something! *hugs to everyone* What have you all been up to that I've missed? Link or explain; I'm all ears!
haldoor: Kaige and I like to jump off bridges one after the other; not always in the same order (revenge-sunset)
Two things I'm enjoying a lot this season so far:

1. Revenge. It never stops being fun. Although if Nolan and that girl are getting together, I need a drink. God, I love that boy. I need my own icon with something clever he says on it. Not sure what yet, but I need to work on it, or ask one of you way better icon makers than me to find something PERFECT and make something pretty. Plus, so much pretty on that show. Jack ( there's always a Jack, have you noticed?), Nolan, Daniel, Declan's kinda cute in a 17 yo kinda way, and now Aiden. Oh yes. Much, much pretty. Now, Anyone got any some slash recs with Nolan and any one of the other lads, please?

2. The Following. This is SERIOUSLY creepy TV, everyone. If you like your shows dark and weirdly compelling, this is the one for me this season so far. I loved American Horror Story last year (S1 only so far, S2 to come), but THIS. OH yes. Kevin Bacon is always good, but James Purefoy is deliciously evil. And there are two guys pretending to be gay (OR ARE THEY? Maybe not both of them...) on the side. Someone posted a link of Kevin Bacon & James Purefoy kissing at some press conference too - forget who, cos that's me. Was it you, [livejournal.com profile] halfdutch? Mmmhmm, I could totally get behind slash on this show too.

AND... What is happening to me? I completely forgot to find H50 online tonight and watch it. I was too busy catching up with things I needed to do here at LJ and AO3!!! Oh well, tomorrow is another day as Scallop said in Gone with the Wind. (yes, I did say scallop on purpose. I have this old joke which refuses to allow me use of her real name: 'Frankly Scallop, I don't give a clam').

And that's all she wrote tonight. Oh, but I did write 1202 words on a H50 fic today, which pleased me immensely as that series is now done and dusted, even if it was new yesterday and I still haven't finished any of those *mumblecan'tbebotheredtocount* WIPs. *sigh*

Happy New Year everyone! May 2013 bring things you've wanted your way!

I can't seem to make myself post anything I've been meaning to, but I'm making an effort to think about it! The sun came out today, so we took the kids to the beach for the first time this summer - and everyone else had the same idea, obviously! Our favourite local beach was PACKED with cars - before we even got halfway down the metal road to it, a guy stopped his car to tell us not to bother! There were cars lining both sides of the narrow road and it was completely obvious there wasn't a point trying to find parking. So we headed for another beach past it - less well known - and it too was pretty busy, though we managed to park on the metal road and walk down without it taking an aeon. Not the world's greaest beach, but very pleasant and swimming was nice. Sat in the sun for a while after that and just lazed, enjoying the day. Home now and Hubby's got the BBQ underway and I'm sitting out on my brand new deck *beams* writing this. Very very nice, I must say!

I did get a nice swag for Christmas - all things I like/love/want/need, so very happy! I have a photo but I haven't uploaded it. Will post about that when I've sorted the pics. Also need to post reno photos and vids up to 23/12/12, which I'll do eventually too.

In the meantime, here's a writery meme that's going around )
