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

Oh god...

I just heard about Dylan O'Brien. I feel physically sick. I really hope he's okay...

Severely injured...
alexisjane: (spinning ball of death)
So, I just found out my short story will be included in the Valentines Anthology from Love Lane Books next month. Luckily, I was lying down already. I'm fricken excited but also kinda having an unexpected "Aw shit...I guess that means I have to work at this thing now" moment.

But in other, not unrelated news, a complete stranger – not a fangirl or RL friend or anyone who gives two shits about how I feel – read my Halloween story and really liked it! I made a complete stranger cry and feel sad \0/ Go me! So that's taking the edge off my burgeoning panic about this other thing.

Already thinking about The Further Adventures of Daniel and Elliot.

Maybe something for Easter.

*checks schedule*

*cries*

So, as you may or may not know, my inbox is generally a mess. Hundreds and hundreds of comments and messages. The only person that is annoyed by this more than me is [livejournal.com profile] somersault_j : )

In fact, she was so annoyed by it that she threatened that should I ever get it down to zero, she would write the Big Bang story that we have been talking about for the last two years.

Well...

In a effort to start the new year afresh, as a gift to my Darling Somer, who is one of the best, most pervert people I know, and as a gift to the rest of us once the Big Bang season comes around ; )...I present to you...my empty inbox.



I'm going to spend the next couple of weeks scrolling back through my posts to try to catch any comments that need replies that I've missed but the inbox is technically and officially empty...

*except I just heard a notification bong...I bet you anything that's Milly!! : )

...and if you have sent me a question that I haven't answered, please do message me again. One of the reasons I decided to do this was I noticed comments coming in, but the number on my inbox staying the same, so it has been deleting messages that I was keeping to reply to.

I'm determined to keep on top of this in the coming year, and I know Somer will do her best to keep me in line. She has ways and means.

It's beautiful : )

Anyway. Love your faces!!!

I'm outta here.

Have a fab time with the finale tonight. I won't be around for a bit, Well, I'm going to be avoiding my timeline anyway. Hopefully I'll be able to catch up soon, but until then I'm gonna avoid social media for a bit. I know everyones going to have lots to say and I can't expect not to get spoiled so exile it is : )

Don't be doing anything crazy while I'm gone : )

Love your faces xxx

OMG!

Excited : ) xx

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

Had a full night of nightmares, not like monsters and shit, just the usual child abuse, screaming, dying animals, persecution type thing that seems so damn real...anyway, feeling worn out and a little fragile this morning.

So when I see this on tumblr...

...cried for about twenty minutes.

Really hoping everyone gets to squeeze a loved one and do something nice for themselves this weekend. Y'know...for Leonard.

Who Holds The Umbrella? )
alexisjane: (TW - stiles wink)
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

5th Dec: [livejournal.com profile] milly_gal - Proudest moment, and no bullshit hun, the honest to god proudest moment of your life, without you doing the whole "I'm not awesome" thing *hugs*


Goddammit, Milly! You know I hate that stuff : P

I feel like I don't get stuff right... )
alexisjane: (headcanon verse)
Okay, I'm sharing this for two reasons.
First, omg beautiful pictures!
Second, (I can hardly say it) in the comments...[livejournal.com profile] riyku and [livejournal.com profile] homo_pink talking fic ideas *bites fist*
It's very early in the morning and I'm really not awake yet but I actually cried. My two favorite writers doing words and stuff together. It makes me emotional, okay!

Anyway...pretty : ) x

Originally posted by [livejournal.com profile] riyku at guess i've always had a thing for shaggy-headed boys
there's a story behind this, or a story inside of this, but recently i posted a photo on twitter to try to inspire a certain someone to write a certain thing, and then i was out and about with [livejournal.com profile] cherie_morte and we started talking about said photo, and i accidentally let it be known that i have a whole folder of photos i thumb through from time to time when i'm thinking about what to write and how to write it, and she accidentally let it be known that it might be a good idea to share, and here you have it. it's pre-series and it's wincesty, at least in my head.
