✿ Exchanges: Signups for the M/M exchange raremaleslashex
are open from now until June 12th, if anybody's interested in that. My signup/exchange letter is already finished (Voila
). I might add art prompts, but still undecided... (I like
receiving fanart in exchanges, but I don't feel like adding more to the wishlist. Hm.)
✿ More exchanges: Setup/noms period for rarepairfest
starts June 1st. I won't be doing this one, since I generally can't handle two exchanges at once, but I might throw something in the tagset just in case. Might be one to consider for those of you who prefer F/M or F/F in your rarepairs. I'll be keeping an eye on it for treating, anyway.
✿ People (in person, not online) keep bugging me about what I'm going to do for my vacation time and... oh, honestly, it's still the busy season at work, I don't even want to think about it. I have no earthly clue. At this point, all I want to do is go to some city I've already been to, and sit in the sun and read and drink good coffee and do absolutely nothing. So it sounds like Victoria again, but I don't know when, and I really wish people would stop asking.
✿ It turns out that I have written far more this month than expected... Almost twice what I intended. Most of it isn't published/finished, of course, but that's not the point. Turns out, my method of estimating wordcount for handwritten pages completely falls apart for anything with zero dialogue. It's just that I didn't discover this until now because I typically don't compare the WIP estimates to the final typed count. In the end, this doesn't really matter, but I find it kind of interesting that I might actually be writing more than expected, at least in terms of raw content. (Now, if only I could finish, like, everything....)
✿ I feel really good lately. After the fire last year, I was an absolute mess, not just mentally, but in other ways too. All this time I've been spending outside lately has been so good for me; every day, I can feel myself getting a little bit stronger. It sucks that this happened, but at least I know things are going to be okay eventually.
