Heeeey, Martian fans! Guess who finally posted a new fic? Don't read it, though, because it's tragic.

"Requiem" - Beck/Watney

And guess who posted a fic that's been sitting in her drafts for over a year now?

"Prodigal Son" - Star Trek: Voyager, Chakotay/Paris








Nothing much new to report on the writing side of things. I have an agent who expressed interest in my manuscript last month, so I sent them some pages they requested and am waiting to hear back about that. 

I've been sucked into some new fandoms in the meantime that I want to write ALL THE THINGS for but have none of the headspace yet to do it. I hope to get there someday. Wanna listen to a podcast about a bisexual non-binary private investigator on Mars? Please check out The Penumbra and then come talk to me about it because I neeeeeeed to flail with people. Wanna read about a gay gangster in 1960s London and be bowled over by angst? Please read The Long Firm, go watch the TV show, and then come find me so I can scream into the void with you.

 Guess who write a Star Trek fic two years ago and then totally forgot about it in her drafts folder?

Oops.


"The Night Absolves" - Jim/Bones, Star Trek: AOS

Jim struggles with his resurrection, and with Leonard's role in it.

 Well, this study doesn't bode well for my story. Harrumph. Guess I'll be hand-waving another bit of science away, along with the possibility of faster-than-light travel and, you know, androids actually existing. Sigh.

2 query letters submitted this week. Another one will go out tonight (as long as I stay focused). Fingers crossed.

In the world of fic, I want to write all the things for all the fandoms but I have none of the headspace and none of the time. Sigh again.

So the optimist in me was like, "Sure, I can post a couple of times a week! No problem!"

Now the realist in me is like, "Wtf, it's been almost 20 days and I have to make ANOTHER post? Jesus."

I really have nothing to report from a writing standpoint.  

Editing. Editing is happening. Sort of. I'm focusing on little, tiny things now, and less on the plot itself. There was a great post I saw on Tumblr a while back (wish I'd bookmarked it) that challenged you to go through your story and remove as many instances of  "said Character A" as you could. Not in the sense that you would replace "said" with a more interesting synonym (that is bad advice, don't do that, it gets distracting after a while), but either eliminate "said Character A" altogether or make the character do something or show their emotion instead. So like:

"I have to go," Bill said.

or

"I have to go." Bill took off his glasses and rubbed the bridge of his nose wearily.

Kinda like that. I'm paraphrasing from the actual post, but hopefully you get the idea. It seemed like good advice and now that I'm implementing it in my story, it's really pulling scenes together. So that's cool. I like how I'm always learning things about writing that I didn't know I knew. You don't always think about these things when you're just reading a book for fun.

I did have someone on Tumblr a couple of weeks ago tell me that I shouldn't bother trying to publish my own original work, which was the kick in the pants I needed to finally start really digging into Manuscript Wish List, looking for agents who match what I've written. I've also been polishing and customizing my query letter to fit each agent. I need to start submitting things, which I'll probably do sooner rather than later now. Thanks, anonymous person, since I know you're reading this as well! *waves*

Anyway, on to more serious stuff.

More of a test post than anything else... *taps screen*

Taking the shiny new blog out for a spin! Hopefully this crossposting thing works and this appears on LJ, too. 

Anyway, hello. Been a while. I had this great long life update post planned out in my head, but now I'm home from work and tired/lazy. I also started this post five days ago, so you can see how well that's gone.

More life stuff behind the cut:
