Can anybody recommend a good gym? I've decided to get a little fitter before attempting any hiking and think a gym is the place to start.

It’s strange being in the house by myself. I used to love it but now it feels like something isn’t right. I’m going to take it as a sign I need to go out more. Any recommendations for interesting hobbies?

I got the biggest thrill ever yesterday when there was somebody dressed as a character from my books at the event at Much Ado About Books. It definitely felt like an accomplishment :)

Well it seems as though my Christmas wish really did come true, a studio is interested in making my books into a television series! I meet with them next week to discuss it and I'm quite excited about it.

What a lovely way to start the New Year.

So I believe it would be remiss of me if I didn't introduce myself or re-introduce myself as it were as I've moved back to the area recently. And as I know from experience this is the best way of reaching people in this county.

My name is Luisa Rey and I'm a mystery writer. My boyfriend and myself have just moved back to the area after a year away and we're looking forward to getting to know new faces as well as catching up with old friends.

Hello. I'm Terra. It's nice to meet everyone. I figured that joining this social network thing was probably a good idea. And a fun way to meet people. As long as you're careful about who you talk to, I suppose.

Someone tell me something interesting about themselves.

I'm having a really wonderful time writing my next novel. Who knew mermaids would open such interesting doors to fantastical worlds. Only about half-way through and I'm constantly being surprised by my characters and the twists and turns of the plot... it's great. Really enjoying it right now.

Everyone okay so far? No one has gotten seriously injured or worse? At least it gives me time to clean my flat...for the umpteeth time.

Am I the only one interested in going out to see what's going on? I mean, I've seen reports, but have stayed true to the news reports and stayed indoors. But I still can't believe some things I'm reading...trolls? Goblins? Orcs? (What are those anyway?)

I dunno about you guys, but isn't this the kind of thing that really gets the Doctor going? I know there are some of you who don't want me to know who he is, but shouldn't we at least go and investigate? See if we can help in some way? Jack, what about Torchwood? This is something that we can do as a team!

This post is, admittedly, a touch belated, if only because yesterday I was busy and therefore distracted.

But Charlie also wanted to wish everyone a good Valentine's Day, so here's me, indulging him.

Well, my dreams got extremely exciting all of a sudden. I got run off the road into the river last night because of an expose story I'm writing.

And the report which proves a project is extremely dangerous turned up on my bedside table this morning!

[Private to Rufus Sixsmith]

The report I got was written by you, if you wanted to see it I'd be more than happy to pop by and show it to you.

What does one do when one's first anniversary falls on Valentine's Day? Something extravagant, I expect, and I fully plan on that, he deserves it.

But I'm just not sure what to do. A nice dinner, of course, and I've a few little gifts in mind for him. But I want to make the day really special for the two of us, so I'm open to suggestions and opinions. Especially from Robert's friends, of course.

It's happened! The big day! The dreams! They came!

I am now officially apart of the club!

It was so particular. There was a man...big nose, big ears, but funny. Determined. Random. He had this police call box he traveled around in, I think it's called the TARDIS? And there were these mannequins that were attacking people, but they were really aliens and we had to stop them.

Dear lord, I sound mental don't I? Everyone else has had strange dreams before, it shouldn't be so hard to believe. But it is. Still trying to take it all in. Thank goodness I have today off. I think today is the kind of day to stay in bed, ponder, and have a nice cup of tea.

Practicing medicine as I have done all of these years is always illuminating. Especially in Orange County. The series of events that happens here is always unique, but despite that, it reminds me of previous years, and previous events. War, and sickness, and strange happenings come and go through the world, and never stop coming and going. But so too does Peace, and health, and good days.

We must hold to the latter and use their memories to move through the former. And learn, always learn. For while we live, there will always be something to learn.

My book is back from edits! Time to write some more, correct some more, and hope this time I get it right! I love this part! I hope all of you aren't bothered too much by the silence. I am finding it's not so bad, really for me. Silence, and enjoying a break from distractions is nice. And those who care do find ways to get my attention despite a lack of voices.

Now! Back to writing!

I think I might be getting the hang of this internet thing! I've ordered books off Amazon now, though I haven't been able to purchase one of those electronic readers. I enjoy the smell and feel of books too much.

I've also looked at that netflicks business! Quite interesting, and so many films I haven't seen! I quite like the period dramas.

What's next? Tweeter?

Not sure, exactly, how to word the latest dreams of mine. When such fails, I suppose I should be pleased I can turn to my dream-self, for he's far more eloquent in desperate times than I am. I can't promise this is exactly verbatim, but I've dreamt it often enough now that I suppose it should be close.

Cut for trigger warnings: mentions of suicide. )

I wish I could say that was just it, but it's quite a long letter. I have to marvel at my dream counterpart's calmness, his acceptance of it all, but I find myself - ironically - too cowardly to even want to attempt sleep in coming days, because, unlike my dream self, I do not want to see this through.

On the bright side, with these dreams came the missing half of the book I found some months ago. Tucked away amidst my music folders. Adam Ewing will comfort me for now, I suppose.

It's strange how much the dreams can influence us. I mean I'm a fiction writer, I love writing mysteries and it's what I think I will always do but thanks to the dreams I understand a lot more about journalistic writing too. And I even think I might be good at it if I tired.

I suppose it's like gaining a new skill. Has anybody had that happen?

Riding my horse is and always has been a calming thing. It allows me time to think, and is restful. And my horse, an old friend, now, is someone I can communicate with without talking, and without much doing. I think it is easy to form such attachments with animals. We are slower to do so with people, but that is a fun thing, too, in time.

I hope everyone else is having a very good evening.

All right, the OC hasn't done anything wrong but it's the general fact that I regrettably must live within the same county as the people who I should supposedly refer to as my family.

Strangest thing though was I kept hearing this music throughout, like it was a soundtrack or something. Bizarre.

For the next week, I'll be spending all my time at my own place for once (Rufus is on exams and it's boring to be there better if he's not distracted).

Please someone tell me that you want to come keep me company. I get so very lonely and sad on my own. :( I promise absolutely to make it worth your while.

I feel bad for all the people who seem to have awful dreams here, because I've only had wonderful ones. And in all of them, my dear boyfriend Robert seems to appear. Though we seem to be in a different time, much earlier. The 20s or 30s, perhaps?

I met him again, in my dreams. Not at a pub like I did here, but at school, where I burst in on him, quite rudely I must say, playing the loveliest tune on the piano.

After that we sort of... drifted together until I confessed my undying affection for him, and he did the same. We ended up spending the summer together at my family's manor house in the English countryside (which does not, for the record, actually exist).

All in all, quite lovely dreams.
