I haven't had much to say in the past 3 months. I have 18 work days left. I am taking a course offered by the out-placement company working with us poor unfortunate souls. It starts tomorrow and it is essentially, 'what do you want to do with the rest of your life?'
I am hoping for answers.
I was at the library yesterday, looking for a book suggested by the coach of the above course. It was not in the stacks, but I did grab a couple mysteries to while away the evening.
Have you noticed that many published books now-a-days are like mediocre fanfiction? The one I started last night, part of the 'Gourmet Detective' series, has poor writing, poor editing and factual errors. I would stick to fanfiction, but it is dangerous to take my computer into the bathtub with me.
I have not written much myself, being enthralled by the tsunami of good fanfic engendered by the release of the new Star Trek movie last June. Perhaps when I am laid off I will work on a Star Trek story of my own. Or maybe I should publish a book. I know I can do as well as some of the drek I find on the library shelves. /end rant/

good wishes for you!

I've spent the better part of my day off reading ST fanfics and just happened upon your site. I'm so sorry to hear of your loss of work...I know it must seem dismal right now, but things really do have a way of working out. I will think good thoughts for you!!!

All my best wishes,

Thank you, that is very kind of you to say.

FanFic - Book?

I've never posted to you before, so you won't recognize my name. However, I would like to encourage you about the idea of a book of your own. If you can find the time with the job search, etc.

This morning I went to reread 'Banished' for probably the 6th or 7th time. I wished again that I had not found it so long after you wrote it, so I could post my opinion where you would see it. I realized then that I could just post it in your most recent journal page. So, here I came. Now I'm worried you still won't see it since it's been a few months since you posted. Hopefully, you'll see this soon.

'Banished is one of the few SnapeFics that I turn to over and over again. I not only love to see Snape come into his own, but the original characters are wonderful in it. Very fleshed out and real. I see no reason why you wouldn't be good at an entirely original story of your own.

Good luck with everything! - Holly (known as Hwyla in the HP forums)

Why thank you so much Holly! I am so glad you enjoyed 'Banished' enough to go back and re-read it multiple times. I must admit I am quite proud of that story.
You'd think that after being laid off I would find time to write more, but the muse, she is avoiding me. I am deeply immersed in 'Star Trek' fanfic still, but no new story idea has popped into my head yet.

I should post more in my journal though.
