Because It's Been Too Damn Long

Singing Gal
Seriously, when was the last time I actually updated this thing?

Okay, well, the gist is: I'm still engaged (yaaaay), still getting married in July in Ireland (yaaaaay), am currently in Arkansas. I have a friend moving down from New York in two weeks, and Aadler and I'll be going to get her, my brother visits from China with his fiance and her mother for two weeks, friend from New York that we'll call Q and I will be moving into a place that my family owns together, looking for jobs and such, and plan to move to Ireland together come March. That'll all be happening in the span of three weeks. The getting Q and bringing her down and my brother and company visiting, I mean. Not the moving back to Ireland, since, you know, March is more than three weeks away.

I have so many ideas for stories, you have no idea (though I'll admit that I'm starting to leave fanfic behind). I still love reading fanfic, and I'll probably keep doing short stories in different fandoms, but if I'm going to put a lot of time and effort into something and it's going to be long enough to qualify as a novel, I'd kind of like to do it as an original work in the hopes of getting it published. I have four ideas for series that I plan on starting soon; one is going to be a fantasy collaboration with Irish and two of our friends, so we'll see how that goes. Irish and I've co-written short stories centering around two characters that when we add them all up come to about 120,000 thousand words. I'd like to clean those up, set them in their own post-apocalyptic world rather than the Fallout world, turn them into a continuous story broken up into chapters, and see what we can do with that. One of the other three, the first book has about 20,000 words to it already and I just. Need. To. Work. on the damn thing. And then the other two will have to wait until other stuff is done, because seriously.

This isn't counting stories that I've already started and have most of the way done, btw. I still want to clean up "Can't Go Home Again" and bulk it up and really world-build on that one. I definitely want to re-work (probably pretty much from scratch) the first long story Original Fiction that I ever did. I have a Sci-Fi that I had most of the way done, and another Sci-Fi that could be but seriously needs to be completely revamped because it's freakishly similar to Firefly even though I wrote it before I'd seen a single episode.

Plus there's the stuff that I need to be doing, just for life in general, like, you know. Finding a job. Working. Earning money. Saving said money. Getting to Ireland. Marriage counseling. Figuring out what the heck I want to do with my life as far as a permanent job situation goes, so that I can go to college without wasting my money.

You know. Basic things.

I guess that's my update tonight. I'll try to post once a day. :D We'll see how long that lasts.

I think most serious writers tend to grow away from fanfic after awhile ... although not all of them.

I still have a few that I'd like to do and plan on doing. But I really would love to be a published author, and that's not going to happen if all I write is fanfic. (Though SPN fanfic is apparently starting to be published on Kindles, I think it was?)

There are some fanfic universes that are now being put out through Kindle as official (and apparently paid) stories, but last time I checked there were only a few universes involved, and none that I was interested in. If SPN has joined that list, color me interested!
