Today is Random Acts of Kindness Day!

Although, everyday is Random Acts of Kindness Day in fandom, I guess : )

Anyway. I wrote a quickie blog post about it.

This is it. http://alexjane.info/random-acts-of-kindness-day/

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

alexisjane: (a- Hmmmm)


Little Werewolf House is done!!!

At least the first draft is. I'll be making a call for betas in about two weeks, then the editing can begin.

Thank God it's over! 60k words in a month! Never doing that again xx

And yes I am drinking now...what did you think I'd be doing? *kisses*
alexisjane: (a- oh abbadon)
The dog that has been staying went home today. Usually Lily is relieved, but this time she's pining for him.

I, however, am relieved. Very fudging relieved.

I've got a week to finish this damn book. I'm behind, and feel like I'm flagging badly but I think I can do it. Only 20k to go. *cries*

Anyway...love your faces...esp if they're anything like this : ) xxx

alexisjane: (TW - action)
So, the lovely RJ Scott, that I spoke to at the weekend about fanfic and such, has a small publishing house, Love Lane Books, and they're currently asking for submissions for a Valentine's anthology for next year! \0/

They're asking for short m/m stories between 2-6k with a valentine theme. It's a free book so no-one will get paid, but it might be interesting to submit something and see how the whole publishing thing works. Deadline is Dec 31st.

And she mentions me in the blog post!!...okay maybe not me, exactly, but one of the "two aspiring authors" is totally me : )

Clickety the pic to link to the blog post, sign-up form and more info.

Me being a grumpy-pants )

In other news, still feeling the supergorgeous buzz of [livejournal.com profile] soserendipity claiming my fic for the BB...and THEN getting to nab the wonderful [livejournal.com profile] namichan89's story to do art for!! I'm so happy about that : )

Also...um...I may have...*coughs*SterekBB*coughs*...oops : )

Posting my DragonBB art later when I get the chance \0/

Still wondering whether or not to bother catching up with spn in time for the finale. They've killed off my favorite character...and not for story reasons either, just coz one of the higher ups wants to get the fangirls riled up so we talk about it in social media I'm guessing...but either way, finding it hard to find the motivation to watch it. Which is something I never thought I'd say. I'm tempted to start back at the beginning and do a complete watch through. I should catch up in time for the start of S11 : ) Yeah. Imma do that : )

Not even going to mention the inbox : /
alexisjane: (a- Hmmmm)


The last couple of days haven't been great but I feel like I'm doing okay. Just so many things that are just...ugh.

But then! Spn-J2 BigBang previews are up!! How exciting! I'm having summary regret but I'm also really excited to read all the lovely fic! Very much looking forward to the bloodbath excitement on Sunday. I'm planning on sitting in a pile of snacks that will either be celebratory or commiseratory depending on if I get picked or not.

The gif doesn't have much to do with anything, I just thought it was cute : ) xx
alexisjane: (a- Hmmmm)
RL is kicking my ass. Just babysat for two hours and now all I want to do is sleep! But have to at least attempt some work today.

But anyway.

Press the buttons! Two polls and fic talk )


I know I should be replying to comments and I will...just need to draw a puppy first : ) Love your faces xxx

Just a super quick rec.

A 20min radio broadcast on the challenges of English to non-native speakers (yes, that means you too US contingent) presented by Henning Wehn, a German comedian who's relatively well known here (and very funny : )

Thought you guys might find it interesting. I know now why I'm so damn confused all the time. I may move to Germany : ) xx

alexisjane: (i stumble forward)
I've been having a massive crisis of confidence about my writing.

I haven't really wanted to talk about it as I think it's perfectly normal and I've been trying not to let it get to me. But it's hard when I feel like I don't have the time to properly concentrate on my WIPs so they're rushed and scrappy, and the BB is just endless and wholly unsatisfying to write at the moment. I've been dragging my feet with it as I can't stand writing when every word is vile. And it has to be that way as that's just how my first drafts come out but editing seems like it's a lifetime away and I just...hate it.

And then this morning I received a comment on my BB from last year, on AO3 and...Christ, I cried. It was stranger, which shouldn't make a difference but I think it does as they have no reason to be nice to me. And they were just so complimentary and invested in the characters and the story. They really connected with it emotionally and they asked for more.

I feel like I couldn't ask for anything better. It really helped to remind me that I may not be the best writer but I can tell a story that people want to read when I put my mind to it. It feels like a weight has be lifted and I'm actually looking forward to getting down to my BB this afternoon and making some headway.

Anyway, it made me really think.

Please...

When you read something someone has taken the time to write, please leave a little comment to let them know.

Even if you thought it wasn't all that, pick out a positive thing about it and say something nice.

If you don't have time to write a gushing review, just a smily face could make their day.

If you want to lurk, that's cool. But just a little wave to say you appreciate someone taking the time - to write 2.5k of Samstiel, 100k of crossover gen or some chibi!J2cowboys or whatever you find that makes you smile - doesn't mean you have to give up your anonymity. We won't hunt you down.

Writing is hard. Art is hard.

Typing : ) or ♥ in the comments takes less than two fucking seconds. And it can make so much difference to the way someone is going to feel that day.

Anyway. That's it. Rant over.

And thank you to everyone who comments on my stuff. You lovely enablers, you ♥ xxx

I will happily write one short fic, one set of prompted drabbles and do one small pencil drawing for anyone who can contribute to Char's GoFundMe page (one per person, obviously). I can't give money but I can do this. Donate and then claim in the comments. Or just donate for love, that's nice too : ) Even the smallest amount can help ♥ xx

Hoping we can spread this and help [livejournal.com profile] dolnmoon, a long-time LJ resident and SPN fan, who's run into some medical issues and the subsequent financial straits :-(

If you could and would please boost my signal as I have done for so many others who needed help and have helped so many others in need in this fandom, I would appreciate it.

So, turns out the TW boys are ADORABLE! and I just wanted to share this gif set coz it makes me laugh so much.

I can't decide which bit I like best, Hoechlin practically trying to fold himself up, Ian's FAAACE!, Charlie/Max (sorry! Twins!) just utterly resigned that he has to put up with this shit, or JR just loving it!

Anyway...

"It’s a beautiful day in this neighborhood, for starters." Tony is gripping his hand, his eyes are sad underneath the shades. He looks a little lost. "You're just the embodiment of the American Dream, Mr. Rogers. I bet you puke sunshine and wear sweater vests unironically."

"Are things that easy where you come from?"

"You make it sound like I drive a UFO."

Steve nods seriously. "You're definitely from another planet."

Sometimes around this time of year I get a little sad that I'm not in a relationship, that I haven't been in one for some time, and that I can't even imagine being in one again.

And then I hear the asshole next door screaming at his girlfriend so loud that I'm actually a little afraid for her and think maybe I should call the police, and I realised I'm blessed!

Being with someone that loves and respects you is the most wonderful thing in the world. Being with someone for the sake of it is a living hell.

I'm really grateful to have you guys, and all the wonderful romantic, sexy, lovely fanstuff that you all make, and I'm grateful too for the douchenozzle next door for reminding me that sometimes, you're better off alone.

And I haven't even started drinking yet : ) *hugs you all tight* xxx

As with all the best things, I'm stealing this from [livejournal.com profile] wings128 : )

If you're not sure which shows I watch you can check my interests on my profile, and of course rlbivob is always allowed. If you want to pick a Wincest flavour (ie. Teenchesters, or whatnot) that's cool too : )

Comment with a Ship and I'll tell you...

who holds the umbrella when it rains
who is the grumpiest in the morning
who worries more when the other is sick/hurt
who plays pranks on the other
who is always the first to suggest cuddling on the sofa
who insists on creating nicknames for the other
who drools on the other when they’re asleep
who says ‘I love you’ first

Just chillin' at my friend's place while she's out and just thought I'd pop in to remind you that Hoechlin 100% makes me lose my shit....y'know...just in case you forgot. For reasons.






And yes I may have been drinking. How could you tell? : ) Hope all y'all are having a lovely weekend : ) xxx

Just wanted to say, it was all y'all's Day 3 today but my Day 9 and I just felt awful, really physically tired, like there was no energy in my body. I could have easily skipped, easily thought "Well, it's just one day, it doesn't really matter."

But I've been here before and I know it does matter. So I did it. My workout was lacklustre and it took forever but I did it and I'm so glad I did!

Anyway, I figure that feeling is going to be coming your way soon and I just wanted to say, DON'T SKIP! You'll regret it! Even if you only go half as hard, and put in half as much effort, still DO IT!

Achieving your goal on the days it's easy is one thing, but doing on the days when it's hard is AMAZING! You'll feel so much better for it : )

Anyway, hope you're all not too achy! : ) xx

**NB - If you think you're going to hurt yourself, for the love of God, stop. You can permenantly damage yourself doing this stuff, so please do be careful. Pain is there for a reason, listen to it.**

So, my relaxing evening, quietly drawing, somewhat ruined by the neighbours TV being so loud, whatever rape scene they were watching triggered me into a panic attack.

Good times.
Haven't had one of those in a while.

Now playing Zepplin so loud, it's actually hurting my head but they might get the message. Not holding my breath though.
