Haven’t Updated

I haven’t updated my LJ in too long. I’ve posted fic at AO3 and spnkink_meme, but not here.

I’ve been really busy. I also managed to give myself a skin infection because I let myself get too stressed over how busy I’ve been. No reason for the skin infection (according to the doc) other than I just wore myself out and my immune system said, “Uh-uh, I’m done.”

I’ve been so stressed, I managed to stress my dog out. After a week of trying to treat her diarrhea at home, I took her to the vet, who said, “Has there been some stress at home? Because we can’t see anything actually wrong with her besides the tummy problems.”

I’d like time to write and do some of the things I enjoy doing for myself. I’ve done so much for other people for so long that I kinda just kept pushing all my stuff to the side for later. I need to stop doing that.

Finishing Alpha House is high on that list of things I’d like to do, but it’s difficult to work on it when I can only grab 10 minutes here and there. Short fic is much easier when everything around you is hectic.

Part of the reason I want to finish Alpha House is because I feel like I need to before I can move on to other big fic.

I’ve got a fic I started way back in 2007 but never posted. I’ve also got an idea for a Supernatural crossover that I don’t think has been done before. At least I can’t seem to find it if it’s been done. I’m excited about it, but nervous at the same time because so far I’ve only filled requests, not posted my own ideas and kinks.

Haven’t done much reading lately either. I miss it.

I have,however, managed to catch a few episodes of The Blacklist while I was eating dinner over the past week. I’m REALLY liking it! I’ve been a huge fan of James Spader since I saw Stargate in the theater (jeez, that was 20 years ago!), and he has continued to impress me in The Blacklist!
