Av - Hiddles shadow

Fun week

Kidlet is away at his first sleepaway camp, which you'd think would mean less busy - which honestly yes, I am, and yet I stacked stuff for this week and so it doesn't feel like it at all. So far all the pics coming from the camp show him at dinner. THAT'S MY BOY. lol

In our child-free-ness D and I went to see "Edge of Tomorrow" on Sunday and we're going to "Maleficent" later. I thought "Edge of Tomorrow" was quite fun - I love Groundhog Day-type stories. The sheer amusement value of seeing the different iterations play out in new ways is worth the price of admission alone for me. (and it was interesting also, watching Emily Blunt be a hardass warrior, considering she was originally up for Black Widow). I might, if I see it again on tv or something before Nov, do it for Yuletide. It's got some interesting corners to explore.

I've managed some good work on my Not Prime Time Ficathon fic. There's nothing like looking at the calendar and realizing we're almost done with June to get motivation.

Speaking of writing motivation, I signed up for Camp NaNoWriMo. It's a Choose Your Own Wordcount challenge, so it's pretty handy for those Big Bang lengths... Anybody else doing it and wanna be cabin mates? username is lizardbeth

I've had two people request a sequel for Triad in the past week, which feels like sort of a sign so I think what I'm going to do is post the parts I wrote and just warn people it's been abandoned. I feel kind of bad about it, but clearly, I'm not going to do anything more with it. And at least people might as well get something out of what I've done than all those words sitting unread on my computer. On the plus side, I read through what I have and it doesn't start reading like a draft for at least 10K words, so there's a chunk of good stuff at least.

Back to writing!
