So...my office was two hours of utter chaos this morning. My boss is in the office today for the first time in months (he's been overseas and on vacation)...bringing with him changing priorities, quick exchange of piles of information, shifting of workloads and other chaotic fun.

Because I didn't think my life was busy enough between now and when I leave for Phoenix next Thursday, I decided I needed to make an afghan for my father and his wife. I started on it yesterday. Fortunately, it seems to be one that will go quickly. It's done in panels, nine panels to be exact. The original pattern called for 9 bright colors. I opted for shades of brown and muted greens. I finished one panel last night.

Cut for rambling about writing, BDSM, sub-space and exploring the darker side of sexuality in fic )

Interestingly, the idea of the two of us writing off of the same basic idea made me think of a writing challenge that I think could be fun. Unfortunately with as dead as LJ has been, I'm not sure LJ is the place for it, so I'm considering using AO3, but that will require a little more research on my part for how that works.

Basically, the premise would be I (or whatever other mods want to help out) would post a summary that is character/fandom generic, but gives the basic premise of a story. Whoever wants to participate in the challenge has a month or so to write a minimum of say 1500 words in whatever fandom (including original) with whatever characters, as long as the end story fits the summary.

Sound like fun? Any interest at all?

Okay, on that note, now that the chaos has settled around me, I should get to work. Crazy ass deadlines yet again.


a) Are you a crafty kind of person? If yes, what is your BEST crafty-craft?
2) If you were offered the opportunity to go do something you love doing for a full year but to do it you would have to go someplace where you don't know anyone, don't speak the language and can't easily leave to come home from...would you do it?
c) If you suddenly were handed $100,000 tax free and obligation free, what would you do with it?
4) Giraffe or Elephant?
e) Define compassion.
6) Skittles or M&Ms?
g) Define persecution.
8) Monkey?
i) What if someone really is out to get you?
10) Have I told you lately that I love you?

I took a late lunch break. I ended up setting up that challenge over on AO3.

The basic information is here: http://archiveofourown.org/collections/ShortStoryLonger/profile

The first Round is here: http://archiveofourown.org/collections/ShortStoryLonger1/profile

And yes, I cheated a little with the first prompt, basing it on the same notion that [livejournal.com profile] badfalcon and I are already writing.

Come join us if you're interested!
