alexisjane: (Jensen coffee)
Yesterday was long. So long it didn't finish until the early hours of this morning. There were many tears of frustration and panic but I'm almost done. Just waiting for Createspace to do its thing and then I can get back to the fun stuff : )

But right now, I'm led out with the dog, feeling like a wet noodle and trying to will myself to go get something decent to eat. Except I just have to listen to this song one more time.

Perfect song, perfect video, perfect cutie. Perfect.



Maybe just more listen : ) xxx

*hyperventilates* This is actually happening!


Okay...so the proofreader just sent back the changes to my m/s...688 commas in the wrong place...apparently I like a run-on sentence *points at self* Who? Me?

Anyway. It's late but I'm going to crack on and get the changes done tonight –– which means tomorrow, instead of doing my tax return, I will be attempting to make epub, mobi and PDF versions of the file.

Soooooo....

What would be great is if three two one zero people (one for epub, one for mobi, and one for pdf) fancied 66k of m/m old west shifter nonsense, with violence, gore, family feels, and piglets...if you could give the files a once over to make sure they had all the right pages in the right place, the links work, the type is readable....all those technical thingies that need looking at before I can sell the damn thing – that would be awesome sauce.

First come, first served.

Don't worry if someone gets there before you and you want a free copy. Once this is done I will be doing a post about free copies in exchange for an honest review. I just need to get my head around this bit first.

Oh god, this is really scary! Who the fuck said this was a good idea?

Love your faces : ) xx

20624 words.

Submitted.

Betas required for J2 gore, domestic violence, and awkward fumbling sex.

In the fic...not like a date or anything.

Love your faces : ) xxx


Also, my happy dance user pic isn't working. Shame on you LJ. And shame on your cow.

*waves*

Still busy as a bee...although I slept for 12 hours yesterday on and off but I think I needed it after the stressful week. I should know by the end of next week whether or not I have to move, so really just holding out until then.

Anyhoo!

Was just wondering if anyone fancies reading 8k of J2 angst? It's my BB, but I've totally stalled and thought some feedback might get me going again.

Age difference and domestic violence (not between the J's) and awkward sexytimes.

I have a vague idea where it's going but I've run out of steam and I only have thirteen days left to finish it : /

It's rough as all hell, and switches tense every paragraph but hopefully you'll get the gist : )
Thanks, Chickens ♥

Here's a picture of how my goofy dog wakes me up to say thanks in advance : ) xxx

I saw this on FB and omg if it isn't the perfect song for Stumble Forward! Esp the bit when Jensen gets the letter and races to Jared's house! Ugh! Just perfect. Or at least I think so. I'll leave the final verdict to [livejournal.com profile] milly_gal and [livejournal.com profile] roxymissrose coz they know the story even better than I do : )

Anyway...x

alexisjane: (a- huh?)
I really need to get started on my BB but unlike previous years, I haven't had anything specific in mind that I want to write. I have a few ideas, all things that need writing, but which to write!!

So as usual when I'm in a jam, I'm gonna let my better half make the decision...my better half being all y'all : )

So...

[Poll #2039234]

These all need to be done at some point, so click away. I'm reluctant to include "Sequel to Space Alpacas" as I don't have an idea for that but yeah, I guess that's on the table too : ) xx

Question

alexisjane: (+1 - Sam&Cas)
So, I'm doing the cover letter thing for the New Writers' Scheme thing, and I have to say what genre Stumble Forward falls into.

M/M Romance doesn't seem quite right to me. Yes, it's technically that but given the level of angst and heartbreak, do you think that I should say it's M/M Romantic Drama...or some other kind of thing?

And yes, I am overthinking this. How can you tell? : )

I have no idea what I'm doing : ( xx

ETA I will shut up about this eventually, I promise xx

Fuuuuuuuu!

Have the hearts gone massive for anyone else?

Just the last day or so the little red hearts are suddenly gigantic red hearts on every post.

Has there been an update or something, or is LJ just fucking with me again.

Fuck.

alexisjane: (a - alec flicking popcorn)
You couldn't plan it better...



In other news, hellatus is over. Apparently. But as I haven't watched anything since...Bad Boys?...I shall be ducking out to -

- I was going to say "avoid spoilers" like I haven't been spoiled already : )

Which is why I stopped watching in the first place. Twitter...bless it's heart.

So, yeah, I'll be around, just maybe not around.

Love your faces!! Have fun! xx
alexisjane: (i stumble forward)
So, I'm gearing up to edit I Stumble Forward into something more...manuscript-ish...just coz I always promised myself I would, and I'm at the point where I need to change the names to protect the innocent.

So, I've had some thoughts...not all of them good, but I figured I'd ask as I'm shit at this, and you guys are fricken awesome.

Anyway...I don't think this is spoilery if you think you might wanna read it...although you've had a year, goddammit! It's not War and Peace, people! Although it has been described as "harrowing" in places so it might be best if you haven't...*coughs*

I digress...


I'm so bad at this )

Anyway...any feedback or suggestions would be gratefully received : ) Ridicule is cool too : P xx

p.s. I was joking about the whole reading it thing...it's most definitely not everyone's cup of tea, so I'm not actually...y'know : ) xx
alexisjane: (Ass-hand)
So, my mom is doing her best to out me as a gay porn writer and I was sad about it...so [livejournal.com profile] milly_gal made me a lovely fraternal incest banner art thing to cheer me up!!

She succeeded by the way (and if you don't hear "that's what she said" in Dean's voice after that sentence, you might wanna reconsider why you're here)


Naked man parts and such... )

I finished my tax return this morning! So, now I'm anticipating the arrival of the Math Police any second to throw me in the slammer for not being able to add up right, and for claiming £3.70 for a bus ticket even though it's so faded it's only just legible, and what the hell do I think I'm doing, including double sided tape that I could be using for anything...

I may be slightly paranoid.

So, I mermaided myself while I wait for them to arrive.



Might be fuzzy coz I had to screenshot it coz it wouldn't save. I'd love to say it's uncannily accurate... : ) xx
alexisjane: (Space Alpacas)
When my son was a very little boy he loved The Lion King. Like LOVED it.

I shit you not, I must have watched that thing over a thousand times. At least. We both knew all the words and several items were broken with him reenacting the "They call me Mr Pig!" scene.

When he moved on, it was such a relief. I vowed never to watch it again.

But, God Damn...this fan trailer makes me want to go put it on right now!! Just brillant : )


alexisjane: (a- like working with children)
...or not, and fucking hate yourself for it.

NEEDED!!

- A New Yorker with infinite patience and a reasonable knowledge of the city and it's workings, that I can fire questions at in no discernible order, so I don't end up sounding like an idiot for mentioning places that I may have passed through once with horrendous jet lag or glanced at on a map and thought, "Meh, that sounds okay." or have made up from watching too much Castle, Cagney and Lacey, and Murder She Wrote.

I will owe you any number of favours. And possibly sex.

no title
alexisjane: (a - really?)
You know you're definitely living in the wrong climate when the papers are saying there's a "killer heat wave" going on but yesterday you were wearing a jumper, coz your arms felt a bit chill.

Admittedly, it was a bit disconcerting going out at 5.30am this morning and it being 19*C...but also Fucking Lovely. I did jogging and everything.

I think things would be different if I had to work outside in the sun or needed to rush around and I am prone to sunstroke...but also I can actually breath through my nose for once so meh.

I need to move some where it like this for more than four days a year.

Seriously.

Whatever It Takes To Get Us Through )
alexisjane: (a- Hmmmm)
So, the epic second (third?) draft of the BB begins, and in an effort to break away from the  "He said. He said" thing, I'm making myself a crib sheet (or twelve) of words to use instead of, or in addition to 'said', so it reads a bit better.

I've taken suggestions from about five different sources and have amalamated them into a giant, vaguely alphabetical list. I'm going to try to wrangle it into something more usable at some point but I thought I'd leave it here just in case anyone else might find it useful.

If you spot any duplicates or omissions, do please let me know.

Gonna try and get some actual work done now : )

Miss your faces ♥
