Despite all of the holiday craziness, this is the time of year which is least stressful, as far as my job goes. (Tax season will be starting in just over a month - cue the Bernard Herrmann music!!!) So, since I’m not so focused on work, not only am I getting a lot of plot bunnies, I've actually written some of them down. I’ve spent half of today working on a new story.

I'm still amazed I've actually *completed* two stories this year. I hadn't successfully finished any fanfic since the mid 1990s, and hadn't even started anything since app. 1997, when I got a good chunk of a Mulder/Scully novel done, and then just dropped it cold. I got too involved in the "yuppie from hell" mindset then - i.e., if I basically lived at the office and dedicated my entire life to work, it would somehow pay off in the end.

Not. When the company reorganization came... I went. But by that time I hadn't written in so long it seemed as if I'd forgotten how.

And then, early this year, I remembered. And I’ve been at it ever since them.

I want to give a big Thank You and Big Hugs! to moonchildetoo and murielperun for all their great suggestions and help and being willing to listen to me Go On And On about what turned into a 41,000 word K/S novella (called “Restraint”).

And just how do you get other LJ names to “light up” and be clickable? I see it in other people’s journals all the time.
