I got a review!

My big news today. All 3 kids have been home sick, so no going into the office for me. I think it's H1N1...the littlest two had their flu shots but there wasn't any for the over 3 crowd so the oldest didn't get one. Now he's sick the worst, poor thing.

It's been quiet, and I've been way behind in work. Starting to play Dragonage a little bit...my husband's been absorbed. I normally don't like video games much, but this seems fun.

Contemplating if I should write another piece and if so, which universe. I've written a ton of White Wolf poetry, a couple Pern pieces (which I may put on line someday) and a lot of Legend of the Five Rings fan fiction. I think about starting some Xmen FF, other than my one little XMen evolution piece which pretty much wrote itself. I don't have another D&D story right now. Do I try to find another obsession, or do I use the opportunity to take up a productive hobby. Like Housecleaning.

Decisions decisions. ;-)

It's finished. It's posted on Fan Fiction.net. It may take 30 minutes to post, but there you go.

I hope you enjoy it.

I'll write an authors note or something for it to tell the story of writing it, maybe. But first I better get back to work!

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving everyone. When I lived in England as a kid, my mom used to make macaroni and cheese for Thanksgiving. But now I'm back in the states and my mom's on the other side of the country. I'd rather have day with my family than turkey, but them's the breaks, I guess.

Anyway,
Got Breaking the Ties back from the beta reader. And I'm about a third of the way through with my edits. Everything is being edited, all the way from chapter 1, because A) I want to have a clean finished copy so everyone who read it can re-read it without me embarrassing myself with 10 year old typoes, and B) the story is so long that it's really easy to shoot someone with the gun in act 18 that you only thought you put on the mantlepiece in Act 2, but you never actually remembered to do so. Oops.

I'm dealing with vastly superpowerful characters, and I still hate deus ex machina. Bleah. Just not sure how to avoid them.

Wondering if I should add an authors note to the end of this to explain the history and some about the world. Is that helpful, interesting, annoying, or presumptuous? What's your opinion?

Editing

So...
My husband is editing my story for me. I asked him to be ruthless. I'm not only looking for spelling/grammar fixes, but I want to know if I produced any deus ex machinas, or had an inconsistent characterization, or used an inappropriate/counter productive image.

I appreciate him doing this, but I'm awful impatient. I want to ask a million questions. I've talked about a lot of things for this with him over the years too.

But I'm feeling pretty impatient. :) I want to read everyone else's stories.

Breaking the Ties that Bind is finished.

I have a lot of editing to do, but I thought I'd open my Live Journal by posting that my biggest story of all is completed. It began way back in 1996, and here we are thirteen years later when I am finally done. That's got to be a record.
