  1. So I’m not going to be around much for the next month or so (not that I’ve been particularly present of late anyway) because I’m moving to GERMANY!!! So you kids play nice while I’m gone and hopefully the German internet company won’t take the whole 3 weeks it says it will to hook up my service. Auf Wiedersehen!

      But… @BronxWench that’s how a move is supposed to go, and sort it out “later”.  :devil:

      The daft bugger has learned that not doing it my way just means twice as much work for him, and crappy dinners for a month. :D

      My parents will *still* search for boxes for something based on the room the item was in from a house that was moved out of 25 years ago!  So, yeah, I know how it goes.

  2. Some days I really miss the old Shout Box. I used to get great title help in there from the users. Now I’m stuck trying to title my own stupid books. :bash:

      @CloverReef Me too. Having to click the box to open it is apparently too hard for me also. lol

      I usually leave the chatbox open in another tab, sometimes with the sound notification on (this depends on the how-much-I-want-to-be-interrupted factor).

    4. BronxWench

      I miss the shoutbox, and the staff chat, too.

  3. Well, it’s late but I finally posted my Halloween story. I’m sorry, it’s crappy but anyway...Happy Thanksgiving! :D

      Hey, the turkeys are likely very scared right now, advocating we try ham instead.

  4. Ever feel like you don’t have a clue what you’re doing?

      @Desiderius Price If you were with my kids today, you’d be thinking fondly about cats yourself, trust me.

      In my next life, I want to be a gay man with an allergy to diapers.

      Cats aren’t all they’re cracked up to be when you have 5 -_-

      And here I thought I was mad with only 3….

  5. I totally intended on writing a Halloween story but then Tahn put a plunny in my head and I ended up writing a Backdoor Politics short story. *shakes fist at Tahn* Maybe I’ll get to that Halloween story today. *sigh*

      lol, I will, I promise… but Backdoor Politics is one of the best stories I ever read. I can’t help screaming over this. Seriously :) Even if it is gone midnight here, and I am knackered, and my bed is covered in crap… *sighs* It can wait. The crap, I mean. It’s like, a page long. It’s either this, or some old nineteenth century ghost story that I’ve been keeping on my kindle. Or another few pages of an Anne Bronte novel. I’m going for this before bed. *nods* It will finish my holiday off nicely.

    4. Desiderius Price

      I base my oneshots in my universe because with as much stuff as it covers, there’s a lot of little points that are great fodder for a oneshot.  (Though I do have to be careful, Dale’s Game is the result of last year’s holiday fic.)

  6. I have a terrible, very bad, no good idea...Oh, who am I kidding, I’m so writing this bitch. *evil grin*

      Hehe, it’s about to get dark up in here.

  7. Ah internet! How I love thee, don't ever leave me again!

  8. It’s official, our first over 70 degree day as it is currently 73 degrees out! There are buds on the trees and it’s time to break out the summer clothes! Woohoo! (Nah, I’m not excited or anything like that. :D )

      I’m not sure.  All I know, is that the ground here is so saturated that we’re certainly going to be going into flood warnings quickly if the rain keeps up.

    3. BronxWench

      I’m seeing wind Wednesday, and cold, but then rain over the weekend. Gah...

      Must be nice… *grumbles* :P

  9. I just got finished with the first edit on Loving Sarajevo. It consumed my life for the past two weeks so I was happy to finish it and send it off last night. Like, so happy I may have cried a little. I thought I’d get to write today. I was so excited only to wake up and have the editor for Backdoor Politics message me to tell me to expect the first edits on that story soon. My life is a never ending loop of editing hell.

    1. Desiderius Price

      Desiderius Price

      In the end, you’ll be published.  Good luck, and keep it up!

    2. BronxWench

      BronxWench

      Welcome to hell. I would say it gets easier, but it doesn’t, although when you see your babies out there for sale, it’s all worth it. :D

  10. I have put a ban on any channel that might show the orange menace’s face for the entire weekend. I’m going to pretend the world stopped on the 19th and live in my little bubble until it pops, until then I will be watching a marathon of cartoons with the kids. That is all.

    1. Desiderius Price

      Desiderius Price

      I've got a one hour forty seven minute video of grass (nothing exciting, just grass), in case you're interested.

  11. So, just signed a contract for Loving Sarajevo! I’m pretty excited and really looking forward to the end of 2016 because 2017 is going to be awesome. The tentative release date for Falling for Him is April 2, mark your calendars! :P

  12. My 10 yr old son just burst into tears when I broke the news to him that Trump had won. I didn’t understand how invested in this race he was until I asked him why he was so upset. Well you see, my kids are Muslims and he was afraid Trump was going to block him from going back to the place he was born to visit his Grandma and Grandpa (which of course he can’t since we are all American citizens with the passports to prove it). This election has far reaching effects and I don’t think anyone will escape at least a little of the fallout.

    1. BronxWench

      Please hug him tightly from me. I swear, I have tears in my eyes as I type this. What a price we’re all paying…  :cry:

    2. pippychick

      pippychick

      Oh… poor kid :(

      Tell him he has to go back, because when you’re all there, I’m going to be sending you your box of things, and he might get to have some of the sweets ;)

  13. So I guess my lucky streak continues… I just got offered a contract to publish Falling for Him!!! Off to celebrate with a bottle of wine! 

  14. Signed a contract to publish Backdoor Politics. The story will be coming down in about 22 hours so if you’re in the process of reading it, you better get your read on.

      It’s amazing work, and you deserve it to be published :) I feel very honoured I was able to read it while you were writing :hug:

      Thanks guys. I’m super excited because I figured there was no chance for this one to get published but guess I was wrong. :D

  15. Finished the mega edit on FFH! Thanks to everyone who responded to my call for betas but I have enough readers for it now. Now let’s all cross our fingers that it’s good enough for someone to publish it. Back to writing the weird and wacky now...

  16. So I am in the process of a mega edit on FFH. If you are interested in reading the NEW AND IMPROVED version and are willing to give me an opinion on it, let me know!

  17. So my 3 new works in progress are sort of strange, one has a cyborg unicorn, one has plausible MPREG with the strangest shifter species ever and the other has a resurrecting superhero... I probably won't post any of them because I don't want to be committed.

      KoKoa, you're welcome, too! We can have our own crazy party. I have lots of wine.

    4. CL Mustafic

      CL Mustafic

      Yay wine just when I can drink again! I'm on my way since my crazy is well documented.

  18. Okay decided to post the last chapter of Picking Up the Pieces too, guess that makes it 6 down, 1 to go!

  19. Just posted the epilogue to Backdoor Politics so that one's complete! 5 down, 2 to go!

  20. Of course my first round of edits from the publisher would come just when I've decided to dedicate my time to finishing my WIPs. Guess that's a valid excuse at least for why they're not getting done, right?

    1. BronxWench

      BronxWench

      Oh, hells, yes.

      And feel free to read through the comments, have a glass or two of wine, whimper a lot, and growl at me. :D

    2. pippychick

      pippychick

      Damn, I can only imagine... pro editors would find fault with anything. I bet they're worse than me. *hugs* Don't let them rip your soul out. Keep the bits you love most if you can :)

  21. It's finished! I just finished the epilogue for Backdoor Politics! Now onto something probably best left unwritten...

    1. ChrissyQuinn

      ChrissyQuinn

      Are you going to write an Mpreg story? :P

    2. CL Mustafic

      CL Mustafic

      Oh, tempting but no, a sacrilegious superhero story. :D

    3. BronxWench

      BronxWench

      ::rubs hands in anticipation::

  22. Well, Backdoor Politics just hit the 50k word mark. I guess that means I should start winding it down. I love when I get to the last third of the story, it's my favorite part!

      I don't know, I did manage to write something that made dafdes cringe so there's still time. Thought I was writing the last chapter today but the characters wouldn't cooperate so now there will be 20 chaps...

    4. BronxWench

      BronxWench

      Ooohhh... that IS hard to do! But I'm not easy to scare off, either, so don't expect me to walk away.

  23. Bathroom remodeling is finally finished! Now I may be able to get back to work...

  24. Laundry is a job that is never done, unless you were to have the whole family go naked for a day. I've decided that when the kids leave I'm instituting a naked day once a week just so I'll for once in my life know what it feels like to actually be done with my laundry.

      I definitely say go for the "scar them for life" scenario. It'll cut down on them bringing home laundry, or, eventually, grandkids. :D

    3. CL Mustafic

      CL Mustafic

      Because I'd end up the only one embarrassed/scarred since they are all male and not that shy about being nude around each other, they may not like me seeing them but I think I'd enjoy it even less on both accounts. :P

    4. BronxWench

      BronxWench

      Oh, well. Then I guess every day is Laundry Day for a while yet.

  25. Just posted Chapter 5 of Backdoor Politics now to write or to nap?
