I wrote the sentence "Their memories made me smile."  Google thinks it should be "They're."  They are memories made me smile??  No, Google, that's a bad Google!  The memories belong to them!  No wonder people mix up their homophones, with Google giving them such bad grammar advice.

Darn Kevin for being unconscious and unable to narrate! lol Do you think it's more fun or less fun to have more flexibility?

It's definitely more fun to have more flexibility!  A big part of the reason I was stuck on this story for three years prior to this year was because I made Kevin unconscious too early and left too much for Nick to narrate on his own, which upset the balance of the story.  I ended up rewriting some of it when I went back to it at the beginning of this year to fix that and let Kevin be conscious a little longer so he could narrate some more of it himself.  This is why I should just stick to third person LOL.


Hmmm... Writing positives...

Ten chapters away from posting the end of PNecklace. That's pretty exciting.

I've written almost 13,000 words this month so far. But hoping to re-find inspiration on either of the stories I wanted to post after PNecklace was done. Can I do this by Thanksgiving? :shrug:

Yay!!  You're so close to posting the end!  That's always exciting.  And you're having a productive September!  13,000 words already, and the month's only half over!  I'm enjoying the 00Carter productivity, but I also hope you find some inspiration for some of your other projects.  I'm still waiting for Death by Snail!


I am excited that you got feedback on a Pandaskunk story and found legitimate feedback in your spam folder. That's awesome!

Thanks!  It's the little things LOL.

What's real estate like for lake houses by pits of despair? Can you dock boats there?

I just finished Anxious People and it was fantastic. A really feel good book. I recommend it if you feel like you live in a pit of despair. Or even if you live by a lake somewhere near a pit of despair. Perhaps overlooking a bridge of missed opportunities.

The book was good. Weird, but good. I enjoyed some of his other ones more.

I am very disappointed about the Boys cancelling their Christmas shows and postponing the album release, but trying to look on the bright side.  Here are a couple of small writing celebrations I had this week:

1. I thought of a title for my MBK sequel idea, which means it's that much closer to becoming a reality.  We all know I can't start writing a story without a title I like, so I'm at least over that hurdle. 

2. I got a random comment on Return of the Pandaskunk on AO3 today - my first for that story!

Anyone else have anything positive to share?

Fine... I'll stay on my own thing.

;)

:D I never knew that song worked in so many contexts, lol.


It is a good feeling!  And yes, hopefully it will give others who are in a slump some hope of making a comeback and finishing some long-term projects.

LOL I love the idea of Backstreet Trope Binog!

I'm sending good vibes out into the universe!

I'm pondering possible tropes now. I bet there's a bingo card generator online somewhere.


Very true.

Scene POVs were more set in stone in the beginning because Kevin and Nick were not in the same place at the start of the story, so their scenes were separate, and Kevin was also unconscious for some of it, which is why I needed Nick to narrate what was happening.  Now they're physically in the same space, so I have more flexibility with that.

Darn Kevin for being unconscious and unable to narrate! lol Do you think it's more fun or less fun to have more flexibility?

Also the Raiders suck. Doesn't matter where they move them, lol.

I think we're Broncos nation more than any of the others, but all the sports have their diehards. Like Nick about the Bucs, but on a state-wide scale, lol. (There, I brought it back to the Boys.)

Aw, that's probably why I got bored halfway through the second season; the first one was awesome. We should start a book club, Rose.

I think it was because of Mandy Moore.

Work... But the good news is, I'm still writing. I've gotten yet another 00Carter scene finished. I can't wait until y'all get to enjoy the new episodes.

If you would still like to read PBox, I will include both location links below. While all fifty chapters of PBox are complete, it is still undergoing the tiniest cursory edit where I change the paragraph alignment of the "~*~" and fix a couple errant commas, but otherwise it's all there. (I keep promising this errant comma update and not delivering, so this may be my next fanfic adjacent project.) Feedback is always appreciated on my magnum opus. :)

Pandora's Box on Absolute Chaos and Pandora's Box on AO3

Please find updates as follows (links now included after the titles):

This week's chapter is Chapter Forty: Uncertainty. As you know, submissions on AC are currently down, but you can read chapters one through thirty-seven here on AC (Pandora's Necklace on Absolute Chaos) and up through the current chapter on AO3 (Pandora's Necklace on AO3). As soon as submissions come back here on AC, I'll upload any missing chapters.

Enjoy! See you next Wednesday!

Edited to add: Somehow I forgot to mention that there's only ten chapters left of PNecklace! The end is in sight, y'all. (For this installment at least.)
