Fan Fiction and Personal Ramblings



Your Sunday Night Ramblings, September 08, 2019

I am currently working on the second to the last flash for October. This is the Wednesday flashes as I had already finished the Friday ones. Soon, October will be scheduled completely and in the bag.

For November, all my Friday flashes are done and scheduled. I need to finish my OMS story for posting for the challenge in November on A03 and then I will move on to my OMS Wednesday flashes for November. There are four Wednesdays in November.

Whew. Once that is all done, which I hope is this week, I will have everything written for October and November and so can than move on to updating another story on AO3. December stuff can wait just a bit.

I did manage to update The Space in My Bed. When I do update it will probably be Stranded 3, but we shall see.

In other news, the Insurance did pay us for the garage door, so now we have to order the door and wait until that comes in before we can get it installed. We’ve been told it can take a month! It’s never easy! But the insurance paying was good news.

Ramblings, September 01, 2019

We had a smashing time at the Hollywood Bowl and John Williams appeared himself. A spry 87 year old.

Of course probably his most famous music is Star Wars (even though he also wrote ET, Jaws, and Raiders of the Lost Ark among many others), and so naturally all the Star Wars Geeks were there with their light sabers.

A fun time was had by all. And we may have gotten a little smashed. I have a big time hangover.

As you know I went a little nuts and started Cadet Ashayam on AO3. Hope to get another chapter up this coming week as well as Didn’t We Almost Have it All, The Space in My Bed, and we will see what else.

It’s hot here but at least we aren’t facing a hurricane. My friend J keeps sending me stuff on Earthquakes, the latest one telling me that a previously thought dormant faultline under LA is not so dormant! Good times. It’s all kind of fascinating really. There’s so much we don’t know about this planet.

Still working on getting the garage door fixed. It’s a long and developing project/thing. Hopefully by the end of September we will have a lovely new garage door! Sheesh.

I still have flashes and OMS etc to write too but with my head pounding today who knows. We also invited the cousin over for shrimp kabobs later.

Anyhow, that’s it in my world right now. Hope yours is stable, cool and healthy

In an Effort to Keep You Informed

Tomorrow, the next chapter of The Vulcan Who Fell to the Earth (Stranded 3) will be going up.

Friday is one of my absolute favorite flashes I have written lately (maybe ever). Had so much fun with it.

Then comes up the long weekend. Hollywood Bowl is Saturday and family stuff and chilling and dealing with all the garage stuff. I am going to be working on getting November Friday Flashes settled. So don’t expect much in the way of updates over the weekend.

Next up in updates for next week are Didn’t We Almost Have it All and The Space in My Bed. Friday, September 06th begins the start of September’s Song Flashes. Wednesday will also have the continuation of the Wednesday flashes.

I had thoughts of taking a different walk around for my Walk With Me post for August, but I just didn’t get the chance. Life got in the way. I did do a post earlier in the month, so we’ll see what I can do with the walks in September.

Also in the month of September I will be experimenting with cheesecake recipes. (Plain New York Style this time)

In general what do I have to do writing-wise, I still need to finish my OMS story (don’t expect anything long folks) so it’s ready for November, and get cracking on that Christmas Jim/Prime story. I still haven’t decided if there will be other Christmas/Holiday related fare other than a few flashes. We’ll see if inspiration strikes. There may be a sequel in there somewhere for How to Survive the Winter Break With a Vulcan Instructor.

PS. My Devotion was updated

So my brother from Kansas visited us recently. Originally both he and his wife were coming, but his wife’s mother was close to passing away, so she stayed behind. My brother came, visited with mom, and will be going back today. His wife’s mother did pass away on Tuesday. She was 91 and had dementia for a number of years.

I fasted on Wednesday after indulging far too many days in a row. During the celebrating for Mom I indulged in a bottle of wine. Back to reality now and watching it.

Today is, of course, the first day of August. There’s a flash on Friday (I don’t actually remember what it is I wrote right now!). And of course Chapter 8 of I Will Follow You was up yesterday. With only two to go, hopefully things will get better for Jim!

Spreadsheet-wise My Devotion is up next but we’ll see when I get to it. Probably not until next week. But I did update Transfer Request, The Sight, and The Mysterious One this week. I might finish I Will Follow You first or even get more done on Stranded 3.

Not much going on this weekend that I know of, which is the way I like it. Supposed to be toasty though.

Hope everyone enjoys

My Heart’s a Virgin Finished

In my continuing efforts to complete a few stories, I have finished My Heart’s a Virgin . Next up for completing is All I Ever Wanted, which will be next week. Thank you.

Story Updates 07/10/2019

With the last two chapters of The Swap posted this week, it’s finished.

I am now working on the next chapter of My Heart’s a Virgin. I hope to have it up by Friday at the latest. Friday will have another flash.

Thank you for reading.

Super Brief

I took a very short break to write the next chapter of All I Ever Wanted, as I felt bad for it not getting updated. It is now. Ta da.Now, for the rest of the week, I am back to Incompatible! Thanks!

Another update from me on here.

The next fic to be updates is Nine Lives. That’s the last one from March.

Expect a Flash tomorrow. I forget what it is, but I am sure it will be good! ha. Oh wait! I remember now. This Jim continues from the teaching Spock poker flash.

I have everything scheduled for May and will soon begin to schedule some for June (including one that continues from May 17)

Coming up NEXT week will be updates for The Mysterious One and My Devotion. I look forward to both of those and hope you do too.

I am also going to try next week to add a 4th chapter to The Thought of You Is Consuming Me (Regency Pinto) for the Pinto de Mayo launch. Cross your fingers!

In other news I may have made a grave error in joining the cookie of the month club! HA HA. I may be eating too many cookies. Bad me!

A Bit of Rambling

So, as you know I did two updates for All I Ever Wanted yesterday. That was in anticipation of spending much of the rest of the week on flash fics through May.

I have May 3, 10, 24th, and 31st done now. I am about to tackle the one for May 17th, which is based on a suggestion JJ sent to me. Once again, thanks everyone for the suggestions they are extremely helpful. The 17th will be longer than typical and will be multiple parts. That’s why I got the flash done for the 24th and 31st as those were short! (And update: Yippee! All May flashes are now done. And Part 2 of the long flash will debut in June. Go me!)

This weekend, Saturday, my great niece Quinn turns 3 and so we are off to BFE for her birthday celebration. Her parents live like 2 hours away from us in good traffic at a place called Redlands. Her birthday is at some kiddie play gym thing where you have to wear socks inside and no shoes. We only have to be there a couple of hours but since it takes 2 to get there and 2 to get back, it’s a long ass day.

Tonight we are seeing Shazam. Looks cute so that should be fun. And that’s pretty much it for news here.
