Apologies

Finals kicked my ass.  Stories are going to be written, I promise.

You Know What Would Be Weird?

So, I picked a bad week to start my, "post a story a week" experiment, because this week and next happen to be finals. So, you know, that kind of sucks.

And I'm really sorry, if anyone happens to be reading this, if this story is a little weird and not what you were expecting.  Again, I'm using the finals as an excuse.

Basically, this is a little drabble that I wrote a couple of months ago for a friend of mine who turned to me one day and said, apropos of nothing, "You know what would be weird?  If we woke up one day and the sun was a different color."  That's where the title comes from, too.

So hopefully you'll enjoy.  I promise next week I'll write something decent.

Request a Fic!

So, as I said yesterday, my goal for this journal is to update weekly with a new story. Which I think is a good and achievable goal, provided that I don't run out of idea for said stories. That's where anyone who stumbles across this journal gets to help: Tell me what you want me to write.

Nothing is off limits, as far as I'm concerned. If there's a story you'd like to read but just don't have the time to write it yourself, leave me a comment on this post and tell me what it is and I'll give it my best shot. Prompts can be anything, ranging from full-story outlines to two or three words to song titles to pictures. Original ideas are great (95% of my writing is original short fictions) but I also love to write fanfiction (check out my profile for a list of fandoms I'm familiar with. Other fanfic prompts are cool too, but it'll take me a little longer to get a feel for the characters). I can even give poetry a try, if you want me to - although I can't make any promises about how good it'll be ;)

So if there's anyone out there who likes my journal, thinks I'm a decent writer and has an idea or two for me to take a shot at, comment here and let me know!

Hello!

Okay, so I am really, really bad at keeping up with these blog-type things. Every couple of months I start a new one, I update it for a few weeks, and then I basically say, "Ah, screw it." and never think about it again.

But this time I'm turning over a new leaf! Or at least, I think I am. One of my friends gave me a a code-thingy for this site, and I decided to give it a go. If I fail, then I apologize, in advance.

Instead of keeping a day-to-day journal-ish blog, I'm going to use this to post the oodles of stories and half-finished fiction pieces that are clogging up my hard-drive. If people decide to read them, that's awesome. If not, I'm cool with that, too.

So this is basically just me, saying hello. I plan to update on Saturdays, if y'all wanna check back then, or you can friend me (is that the right word? I'm new around here) or whatever. I'll be posting the first story on Saturday, so I hope everyone enjoys!


Loves.
