Wow, it's been a while, hasn't it?


I know I haven't journaled for some time, but I've been terribly busy. After Christmas didn't slow down right away, so I was still working. In fact, they tried to call me in tonight, but all of my clothes are dirty, so I was unable to go in. Besides, I am hoping to do something with my writing today---something I haven't had a chance to do in over two months. The frantic energy inside is just begging to get out.

My beta came down and visited for a few days, but she's gone home now. It was a nice visit and we had a lot of fun doing different things. We watched a lot of stuff and went out to eat a couple times, which was fun. And we exchanged gifts. I got a couple more Ranma volumes and the movie Porco Rosso. I've already read both Ranma volumes, but that's okay. Anyways, it was a lot of fun and I hope to see her again soon.

The IYFG is currently having their nomination period again, and I am lucky, despite my low writing quantity, to have been nominated. I'd like to thank doggieearlover for nominating Journey for Best Characterization: Sesshomaru and Best Serial. It means a lot to me that people still nominate the story after all of this time---especially considering the lack of an update!

The Media Miner Maximum Challenge is fast approaching as well, and I'm going to prepare my Songs of Faith story Shake the Disease to enter this year. Last year, I entered Child of the Moon, which took third in the Best Drama category, and the year before I entered my original piece Bleeding Through, which took first. I'm hoping that Shake will do well in whatever category I end up entering it into. I had hoped to have another original piece, but that unfortunately did not happen due to my time constraints.

Other than that, I'm just trying to get back into the swing of writing again. I want to write on a couple stories at the moment---mainly the next chapter of Journey and the next Songs of Faith story. We shall see if I can get back on track and have something for you guys to read, other than silly journal entries.

Until next time,
