I just finished (finally) my magnum opus fiction (yes, it's game-related fanfic) and am getting it posted. This makes me happy, really really, happy! At just under 120K words, I won't be offended if no one reads it, I'm just happy it's done! And I still think it's good, which is also something!

(If anyone *does* want to read it, let me know. It's set in the game-verse of Neverwinter Nights 2, a D&D based, sword and sorcery type realm. It's written in such a way that you can follow it if you haven't played the game. It's character study that fills in behind the events of the game, and yes, it's a romance!)

*happy dance!*

Still here, reading and not saying much. I've had a whole lot going on lately, both within and without my noggin. More on serious stuff another time.

So, I have this tendency to fall in love with fictional characters. It's sort of a serial monogamy of fiction crushes. I know I'm not alone, and overall, I think it's a good thing. I am the sort of person who tends to live in my own head quite a bit, and it can get lonely rattling about in my skull. It's nice to have playmates in there. Rich inner life and all that, yeah?

For the first time I think ever, I have two crushes going on at once, and one of them is even inspiring a vast outpouring of writing. Well, that has actually happened a lot, it's just almost never resulted in any *actual* writing happening. This time, pages are appearing before my very eyes. Very exciting stuff, that.

So, is it odd to fic ship a PC and NPC from a video game? (My Google results tell me no, it is far from unusual.) Nevertheless, it's interesting spinning out this story. Like all my stories (and even my dreams), it has a soundtrack, too. I can half see myself putting it out there, with a playlist on Last FM coded by chapter. When I do things, I do tend to go whole hog, it seems....

Anyway, odd as it sounds, that's the biggest thing (well, second biggest; if you know you know, and that's going pretty well all in all), going on with me right now. Summer is such an odd kind of limbo for me, but I like it. It lets me indulge in all these strange inward travels I take, chase dreams, explore new spaces with a warm breeze at my back. Isn't that what summer is for?

(My, aren't I all artsy and pretentious today? ;)

Things I need to remember:
• Asking for help is not, as it turns out, fatal.
• Laughing is easier than pulling your hair out, and doesn't have the unfortunate side effect of making you look like a plague victim.
• Even the biggest tasks can be defeated if taken a bit at a time.
• I can write a paper the night before it's due, but the results are not all they could be.
• Be thorough, but focused.
• Trust yourself.
• Honesty, always.
