All my stories, no matter the fandom, are Gen and range from G to PG-13 only.

The following archive I created a while back for those stories not posted on my journal. But I'm terrible at maintaining archives, for which I apologize for, and what you see below is not all there is, nor is SGA the only fandom I've written for. My stories are a bit all over the place, and what can't be found in my journal or this archive can be found at the following sites.

FF.net
AO3

To find stories on my journal just click on fanfiction or which ever fandom you are interested in in the tags.

So after having spent pretty much my entire life pretty much not having a job... pretty much (except for a few cleaning gigs and two very, very short-lived stints), I'm finally employed! I'll be working for our church doing some cleaning as needed, possibly even some running around shopping for and maybe preparing some food. So it's part-time work that isn't going to be constant, which is even better since that will mean time to write and work on my poseable plushes. As for whether or not I'll still be able to volunteer at the shelter is up in the air. I should still be able to, but if it turns out both work and volunteering are getting in the way of writing and plush-making then I may had to tone down my volunteering - that is, come in when I can (which wouldn't be a big deal as I've been kind of, sort of wanting to not volunteer as much. I'd still like to come in and pet cats, though, and I'm still most definitely going to foster. I'm just tired of having the crap beat out of my legs by overly exicted isolation dogs who don't know the meaning of the words "stop jumping on me!" Some of them dogs have huuuuge paws).

I'm just so dang excited! I'll have my own money! I'll finally be able to open a checking account rather than relying on savings? I might finally be able to afford an editor!

2017 is being absolutely awesome thus far.

I've never been a New Years resolution kind of person because I'll make goals whenever I dang will please, thank you very much. (Plus I'm not a big fan of New Years). But this time I... kind of, sort of did? I guess? And that is buckling down and writing up notes and outlines for new story ideas, rather than planning them a little here and there then taking notes only when I'm ready to write.

Which, technically, is a goal I actually started last year, but it was mostly world-building I'd focused on, with only a vague synopsis of what the story is about. Thing is, story ideas have been coming to me a lot quicker an a lot more put together than they used to be. Usually it takes me about a year to fully plan a story out. But recent stories have only needed a few weeks to a few days for me to flesh them out. So I don't want to focus on just world-building with only a vague synopsis, I want to get cracking on outlines.

Because I am sick and tired of having all this time to write with not a single story ready to be written. My hope is to get quite a list of story notes and outlines so that when it's time to write something else, I'll be ready to go.

Meanwhile, on a completely unrelated note, for Christmas I got Batman: Beyond the complete series. At first I was a little worried that it might not be as good as I remembered. I was wrong. I love this show. Still good as ever. Although I gotta laugh a little that the characters use flip phones.

Okay, I know there's this thing about 2016 being a year of, well, dying. It's mostly been celebrety deaths, and for a time I kind of thought it was an exaggeration, but... yeah... I kind of have to agree with the sentiment.

Not only did we lose one of our dogs and I lost a feral cat this year, but Christmas day I discovered my other feral cat - the really sweet one who was my favorite and who had the cutest meow - got hit by a car. Plus this November one of the vet techs at the Humane Society's clinic who had worked there forever had passed away, and she wasn't anywhere near being old (she was the one who helped me in getting my cat, Pepper). Then my mom told me that two people she had gone to school with had passed away.

Good gravy, 2016, enough already!

The loss of two of my ferals also reminded me why it is none of my indoor cats are allowed to go outside. There have been times I thought about fixing up the backyard for Pepper because she keeps wanting outside. Welp, that's not gonna happen. I've lost too many cats to the outdoors over the years. She can go outside if she has a leash on, an only in the backyard. Other than that, no outside for her.

Also what is it with bad stuff wanting to happen on or near certain holidays?

(On the plus side, I had one annoying medical issue go away, and I'm crossing my fingers that the years ends with no other medical issues cropping up, I awlays get the weirdest, most obnoxious ailements around this time of year).

December is being interesting this year, it seems. For one, we're actually - finally -getting some real winter weather: cold tempreatures and even snow. But Kansas being Kansas the weather is still trying to be all over the place. It's supposed to be in the upper fifties on Sundy, but I'll believe it when I see it. Last time the weather said it was going to be in the fifties it also said it was going to be sunny. It was neither, it was freezing and cloudy and that was the day my mom had us help put tarp over the storage trailer.

But, surprisingly, I'm not complaining even though I hate the cold. We've been needing a real winter, mostly to cut down on a lot of the bugs that have been driving us nuts the past two summers. Plus it helps you appreciate warm weather more.

I also sold my first doll! But being my first sale I keep fretting over the package. Did I write the address clear enough? Should I have put more bubble wrap on the doll? That kind of thing.

Also for the first time we've have to put up a barricade around the tree to keep it safe from the dogs. Usually it's the cats that are a problem, but we have a lot of stubborn boy dogs who have been having a peeing contest with eachother. We've also resorted to putting diapers on them, that's how bad the peeing thing has gotten.

I've also opened up my Etsy store to making custom dolls, so we'll see how that goes.

Well, I'm a dork. I totally forgot to announce that Magic's Perdition is now available for purchase, both paperback and for Kindle.

You can find it at Amazon.

You can also read excerpts from it at my author journal here (complete with artwork) and the Look Inside Feature at Amazon is active.

I have to say so far this book seems to be doing well in sales. I mean, not amazing or anything, but the fact that I've actually made a few sales for a book only just published is pretty dang good. Plus I've gotten two reviews thus far. With Toymaker it was months and months before I got any reviews.

It was so nice to go back into the Harry Potter world. I think my only complaint was that I wished we got to know Newt a little more, otherwise it was a wonderful movie. I'm really hoping they do more if possible.

So, there's a number of people out there voicing how they're getting tired of Marvel movies. Me? I say... I want moooooaaaarrr! Seriously, every Marvel movie I've seen has been nothing but a blast, even Civil War which also kind of depressed me. I also think Dr. Strange is my new Marvel favorite along with Ant Man and Guardians of the Galaxy. The things he can do makes my fantasy-loving heart flutter with joy.

I swear writing is, like, 10% actual writing, 10% getting it ready to be published and 80% doing what you can to advertise. The new book - previously titled All the Devils are Here, now titled Magic's Perdition - is about a week away from going live but can currently be pre-ordered on Kindle. You can read excerpts of it on my author journal, and there's even pictures. Journal is updated, websites are updated, Facebook is actually being utilized, passwords had to be changed because I forgot half of them...

Meanwhile all the art stuff I'd had planned today probably isn't going to happen. Except, maybe, some drawing if I don't get distracted by other things.

In other news, thanks to Windows updates the sound on my laptop doesn't wrok as well as it used to and I have no idea why. I hate updates so much. We also have a hawk that's been harrassing out chickens and doves, the little punk. We've also been getting an influx of squirrels due to all the bird seed and chicken feed. They're funny little guys.

Our weather has also been absolutely gorgeous, but instead of anjoying it I'm worried it's going to be another mild winter. As someone who hates the cold, a mild winter wouldn't be a big deal except it's mean a major increase in bugs, most especially flies, mosquitoes, and the kind of bugs that like to destroy garden vegetables, so we need a nice cold snap to do some population control on the insects. Still, I have been enjoying the ability to open my window.

(And I do think we're at least starting to head toward cooler weather, since it seems we're going more and more into the sixties. So I'm hoping that we will have a real winter, it'll just be a little later than usual).

I just finished watching The Secret of Kells on Netflix. It is an aboslutely gorgeous animated movie with a very interesting art style and a lovely (if a little sad) story. I highly, highly recommend this movie if you're into both fantasy and art.
