Eight words on eight unique lines is a split. The words don’t have to be used in the order given.

Winter, I hates it, I do!  
It's too cold, the husband has been sick (we've been to the dr's three times and another appt next week) but...

Our outside cats are being totally entertaining! The grey girl did a whole run-across-the-lot, jump-up-the-pole, climb-as-high-as-the-top-of-the-tool-shed thing this morning! And then mama decided to go across the road and get herself a golden gopher (or whatever you want to call them) and bring it back, probably to share with her kids.

But it is warmer, but the wind chill is bad, but the sun is shining and it's melting a lot of the snow! So, that's another good thing.

Now, if I could just get the husband healthy...

Procrastination 101  
I was just over at [community profile] ushobwri whinging talking about having written no words yet today.
Anyway, they were asking about fun fannish things coming up, and so I pimped some fests.

Knitting  
I'm stuck on a top. I loved the pattern in the body, but not on the sleeves, so I decided to knit stockinette stitch instead. Miles of it, with a yarn that splits like a bitch. I'm so over this project but I want it done, not stuck in the back of the closet. So I'm pressing on, teeth gritted. Hopefully I'll be done with it very soon.

On Fan Fiction  
When I first started writing fan fiction, back when TVs were black and white and “fan fiction” didn’t have a name, I wrote it to amuse myself. Twenty-five years later, the print ‘zine came into existence and I wrote a few stories that were printed in those ‘zines, although I had no idea if anyone ever read them.
Then the internet came along.
I still write fan fiction to amuse myself but occasionally share it in return for the stories that are shared with me. Only a small fraction of what I write is ever finished and only a fraction of that is ever posted on-line because most it isn’t that great.
So, I wrote a story recently and sent it out to a few beta readers.
The silence was deafening.
Okay. That one isn’t going public but at least I know in advance that it sucks.
So I have tossed that story aside for my own eyes only (Eyes Only was a Man from UNCLE ‘zine I edited back in the day) and am poking at a few other things. Some are obviously WAY to complicated (Seriously. Snape acting as a consultant for Native Americans in North American to try to restore magical knowledge they have lost. WAY too complicated.) Some are just lying there because all I had was an amusing line or two. (Snape & Malfoy, Custom Potions and Spells. Known to the trade as S&M.)
But the real thing is I need to actually write something. Yup. But some words on paper, virtually, mind you.
Any minute now.
Wait? Is that the dryer binging? Excuse me.

Snowflake Challenge, Day 15  
Fandom Snowflake Challenge banner 2018

Day 15

In your own space, write a love letter to Fandom in general, to a particular fandom, to a trope, a relationship, a character, or to your flist/circle/followers. Share your love and squee as loud as you want to. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.


Dear Fandom,

I'm not sure I can think of a new way to express my love.
You are a huge part of my life and, well, I'd be a completely different person without you, so, instead of words, have some pictures that express how I feel.

How do I love thee? )
