I want to talk about writing/creating with you! If you'd like to talk with me, leave a link to a bunch of your fic/vids/art/other creative things, and I'll choose one that makes me curious and ask you to tell me about it, with some specific questions. You can do this in a post, or a reply, or however you would like.

If you want to talk with others, you can repost this.

Disclaimer: By posting now, I am giving myself permission to accomplish NOTHING until the new year. My mom was in the hospital almost all of last week, and now she's home and needing a lot of assistance, so I'm beyond exhausted.

2014 Resolution/Goals: 30 Books, 60 Movies/TV Seasons
Status: Miserably failed on books, kicked ass on movies/tv.

I am online yet again, and mostly settled. Pictures to come for those interested.

A few looming fandom deadlines... but meanwhile:

I currently have 169 works archived at the AO3. Pick a number from 1 (the most recent) to 169 (the first thing I posted there), and I'll tell you three things I currently like about it. Like gloss, my numbering doesn't always reflect chronologicality, as I shift  archives on whims. If you'd rather, I have 638 entries on my wordpress -- this includes lots of overlap, and more individual entries for stories that may be on AO3 as chaptered fic. Give a number and specify which archive you'd like me to poke. If under 169, I'll assume you mean AO3 unless specified.

Tell me about a story I haven't written, and I'll give you between one and three sentences from that story.

Because I'm bored at work and feeling crappy, because my hands haven't quite adapted to knitting, because I have to take regular breaks from reading A Game of Thrones, and mostly because I can:

24 facts about [personal profile] aphrodite_mine 

  1. The first movie I saw in theaters was Milo and Otis. The second was Harriet the Spy.
  2. I hit my brother over the head with a rocker (from a rocking chair) when he was a newborn.
  3. My first fandom was either Power Rangers or the Little Owl books.
  4. I used to have a V-shaped birthmark on my forehead, but it has faded with time.
  5. My first pet was a salamander of indeterminate gender. Sam lasted a week.
  6. For a few years I wrote and directed holiday performances for my siblings to put on.
  7. I wear a size 10 (US) shoe. It makes finding discount styles irritating.
  8. But then again, I've worn the same black flats almost every day for over two years.
  9. I used to play the cello (badly) and can play the piano (very badly).
  10. I still refuse to re-watch Jumanji because the night I saw it in theaters my neighbor played his bongo drums out in the driveway, and it scared me that badly.
  11. I read my mom's copy of The Color Purple when I was in grade school because I thought it was a romance novel. I don't remember reading past the part with Shug. (In fact, when I re-read it for a class a few years ago, that was the only part I remembered.)
  12. My mom told me once that masturbation is "something boys do."
  13. She also told me that I shouldn't be friends with a girl at church because she had depression and she would make me sad.
  14. I didn't drive until I was 21.
  15. My three siblings and I have six suicide attempts, one rape, seven mental diagnoses, and zero broken bones between us.
  16. I've moved at least once a year for the past seven years.
  17. I had my first kiss at 21. (Unrelated to driving.)
  18. I've never been out of the US, but I've been to both coasts, Wisconsin and Texas.
  19. My first online presence was an Animorphs website (I don't remember the host) followed by a collection of my fanfic and poetry on tripod, some of which is still live, and a ujournal.
  20. I took ballet, tap, and jazz from age 5 to 13. A few years later, I told my mom that my sister looked really awkward on stage. She said, "You should have seen what you looked like!"
  21. In third grade, I played a boy in a church play. That year I also played a Country Mouse and Maria in The Sound of Music (without the nuns or... the music. The summer school didn't want to offend any religions or pay for the rights to the songs.)
  22. I was in both of my parent's second weddings. (I am super iffy about that apostrophe.)
  23. I've never been pulled over, but I've been in two accidents.
  24. In elementary school, I sang at a boy's memorial service. I didn't know him, but other than his best friend I was the only one upset when he died.

I wrote for the first time in over a week today.

this part was for her (and this part was for her), Bomb Girls, Betty/Kate. For [personal profile] majesdane  on the occasion of her birthday.

Today has been strange. For the first time ever someone:
  • came into the office to place their service call
  • someone emailed me requesting that I read their story
  • I dared to listen to music at work (and good golly, the affect on my mood for the better!)
And here is a meme from [personal profile] musesfool  via [personal profile] gloss :
I was thinking you should tell me about stories you think I should write. I mean, if you could sit me down for a day or whatever and say, "victoria gloss marcia, I want you to write this story for me," what would that story be?

I'm not actually promising to *write* any of these, mind you, but it's fun anyway. And who knows if I'll be inspired!
