What's been happening since my last post? Let's see... well, not much. The problem with Dunkirk is that I vaguely want to write fic, but I overwhelmingly do not want to do the WW2 research, at least right now. So instead I read some niche pairing One Direction fic and called it a day: rec (SFW), rec (SFW), rec (NSFW), rec (probably NSFW), and rec (definitely NSFW).

Writing check-in for today. I wrote 2,444 in the past week, \o/. The end is now in sight for my The Nice Guys story - my goal for the month was to at minimum get it to 3k, which I sailed past yesterday once I finally maneuvered the characters into the right place to get it on, and I wrote the actual ending line so have only to finish the NSFW bit and it's done. Of course, I did that instead of watching Once a Thief, so Thursday I'll be getting caught up on that, and maybe Friday I'll go to Panera for dinner and write the rest of the NG story.


GOALS, I haz them, but IDK about motivation. (Actually, I'm excited to finish this fic and keep my Small Fandoms Summer rolling into Fall.)

Last week at work when we cleaned out an old storage closet, I claimed a bunch of investigation training materials from 70's, on the off-chance that I will write some sort of novel involving these ideas some day, and I just realized it might be useful for writing another The Nice Guys story eventually. Good job, past!me.

I slept so hard last night - presumably crashing after the stress of going to the dentist - that I didn't even hear my alarm and woke up ten minutes later than usual, but somehow made it to work exactly on time. My co-worker (who I'd warned I was running behind) was impressed. I have reached an age where I need to go to bed much earlier than I did in my (not wild, really boring) youth, and I'm annoyed at this but I'm still trying. So far this week I've got two nights of completely blowing past my bedtime and last night of getting to bed fifteen minutes early. Note to self: you can't stay up late just because you took a nap, or else you end up in a bad cycle of napping/staying up late/napping because of it.

Went to see Atomic Blonde over the weekend - did not realize Charlize's young German contact was Bill Skarsgaard until the end!! I always laugh when James McAvoy does his "they only cast me because I'm cheaper than Ewan McGregor" shtick, because he was great in that role.

I've been checking out the podcasts you guys recommended and it's been great. Eventually I'll make a longer list of those I liked, but for now I want to talk about "The Bright Sessions," a fiction podcast about a therapist for patients with unusual abilities. I quickly got attached to the characters, and then in season two the plot really took off. Originally I just wanted to make a few notes for a future rec, but by the middle of season 2 I was making notes for almost every episode, so now you get a long list of episode reactions to distract myself from the cliffhanger at the end of season 3.

Season 1 )

Season 2 )

Season 3 )

Season 4 in October! I really look forward to it. And there will be a TV adaption too, I'm very curious.
In the meantime I'm thinking about what fic I want for Yuletide, because it's the season of worrying about Yuletide nominations.

I know a few of you who are at VVC and it's hard to keep track of everyone, but anyway, I will be at VVC tomorrow (Friday) all day, in the lobby/hallways at least, and really hope to see whoever I can <3. In any case I am reachable by email, comment, tumblr (peppersheart), twitter (same) and any other social network you know me under.

See you tomorrowwww
