Hey Reader,

Finally, after almost TWO weeks of not having time, being too tired, or just plain too busy to write even a word let alone a sentence or paragraph or page, I have FINALLY written nearly 500 words tonight, and I do hope to write more before work tomorrow at 10 PM. I can't tell you how much I needed to do that, not just for the story and so that you guys know the story WILL continue, but just for my sanity. I am, no matter what I get paid to do, a writer, and this is what my muse wants me to write lately.

I still don't know when I'll have this chapter written, beta'ed, or posted, but I am thrilled to get SOMEWHERE, ANYWHERE at all on it. It's nice to see something happen, even if it's something small as 500 short words. It is kind of hard to get into the chapter having stretched out the process so long and after so many interruptions, but I am determined. We haven't come this far to just leave the gang hanging! They have a lot of things to do, endure, and complete just yet. And they are getting just as frustrated as I am on the slow progression here. . .it's not just you!

You can also blame the evils of baseball. My team, the Minnesota Twins, came back to take the AL Central Division, but unfortunately got swept in the ALDS. It's alright, there is always next year, and now I'm throughly rooting for the Detroit Tigers, the rivals for our Division crown. They swept my most hated team, the Yankees, (Or as we call them, Big, Dumb, Jeter-heads). I hope Detroit wins the whole thing. Go TIGERS (Hell, my highschool mascot was a tiger, it's not like I haven't cheered that one before).

Anyways, if you haven't heard already, Inuyasha Fanguild Nominations are open still. Journey has been nominated by inuhanyounikkie for Best Crossover (I know I said I was done with the category, but I just can't resist someone who calls me one of their Literary Goddesses), and for Best Serial by doggieearlover. Don't forget! Child of the Moon is also eligible and ONLY eligible for THIS quarter due to it being a one-shot. Feel free to nominate it for anything you see fit, but do it soon as I believe the nomination period ends on the 14th.

I suppose I should get back to the chapter and see if I can get anymore on the page before I do something I rarely get to do these days...sleep at NIGHT.

Until next time,

Far Away Eyes

Thanks for the reminder, I'd intended to send it for Songfic, but then had not gotten around to it lately. Dealing with people stealing my name and my fic has taken way to much time. It was much more fun responding to people's challenges and writing something different.

Anyway, I sent it to the list. We'll see how long it takes before it gets pushed through.


Thanks. I can't imagine the QC DQing it, but who knows. I know I worked really hard to make it the best I could!

I do hope all the silly name stuff resolves, soon!

I can't imagine they would, but I guess never say never (to either of them). Mine are still there, so maybe there is hope.

And I can't wait for you to get your next chapter finished so you can go read what I've put up in the meantime that you've missed (I do understand, though).

And I hope you get a good night's sleep tonight!

Yeah, I know what you mean. I still say the QC is kind of going to drive more people away in the long run.

I can't wait to get the chapter done, either!!

And that good night's sleep tonight? HA! I work tonight. Ain't happening. I wish I could get a day job and be NORMAL again. Sigh.

Boy is it taking a long time for your nom to show up on the list, either that or my browser just isn't picking it up...

With the entire list under moderation, it has to wait until one of the mods goes and releases them. We'll probably get a flurry of mail from IYFG at once since there hasn't been any for a while.

Oh jeez. I hope that doesn't mean we'll have a few noms dropped because they weren't approved in time.

day jobs are overrated, i miss my night jobs. but that could also be because the very young students that moved into the apartment below me seem to have no sense of time and like to start moving around 2 am. i understand your joy of getting words on the page. i finished one of my four ongoing projects and i feel like i actually did someting worth while (not that my laundry isn't still begging to be done or anything)

Actually, as odd as it sounds to me to say it, I would prefer a day job. I have found that I just DON'T sleep as deeply or as well during the day, no matter what I do, that I'm just as worn out when I wake up as when I went to bed that it just accumulates by the end of the week until all I really want to do is sleep. I'd rather face a winding down for bed period at about 10-11 PM rather than being at the beginning of my work shift. I am just hanging onto the fact that this job is temporary and that I can HOPEFULLY find something else.

And yes, getting some real writing done made me feel a bit better. I was getting irritatable and agitated the more I couldn't get any done, partially because I was ticked off at the job, partially because I was tired of being tired, and partially at myself for letting myself get so worn out. I'm just hoping I can get into a groove, even if the damn work week is already upon me.
