It's taken me two weeks to write 3600 words. I was stuck for most of that time. Finally had a breakthru mid-week last week and managed to fine-tune what I have.

Still need another 2-3k words before I can put it up, tho.

I knew it would be harder, but damn.

Here is the sequel/second chapter of the fic I mentioned in my last post. This chapter is called Promises Kept. I've left it open for more chapters--if there's interest. Otherwise, it's at a good place to end it, I think.

Personally, still depressed, but remembered to take the meds. I have got to stop working soon or I'll be more of a mental case than I already am.

My sister called today...she's going to fly up for our birthdays. She'll be here August 18. I was thinking of going to HP World in Orlando--if I could talk hubby into it--so it's a good thing she called.

I've decided to get a tattoo. At first, I considered the Dark Mark, but then I decided to be more sensible and get "Always". I was thinking of the outline of a doe underneath--but then I thought perhaps an otter in honor of my OTP? I still have a month to decide.

Guess that's it for now. Welcome to my new friends.

I have massively rewritten one of my stories, Promises, because I suddenly had an idea for a sequel.

It's set during Christmas of Sixth Year, Hermione is of age in my story. SS/HG, NC-17. I've got the sequel half written, but when I reread the original story--it needed more of everything. So I've added about 700 more words.

I'd appreciate it if some of you would read it and let me know what you think.

Also, so many thanks and warm wet snogs to you all. Your comments the other day helped so much. I love you guys.

Chapter 8 is up.

Chapter 9 will probably take longer.

A sequel to one of my other stories has manifested itself in my brain...I vomited out six pages the other night.

I am putting down all this creativity to my new anti-depressant.

It's fantastic, having all these ideas...even at work.

The Binding now stands at 59k words. I'm astounded. I figure another 2-3 chapters to go. We'll see. ;)

Chapter 7 is now up.

Chapter 8 is in the works. I was afraid if I took a day off, I might slack off, but that hasn't happened, thankfully.

Been reading some fic, some of it fantastic, some dreadful.

I need more fantastic fic in my life, I think.

Nothing much else to report. Same shit, different day, bigger pile.

Chapter 6

Is posted.

Chapter 7 is complete and just needs another once over and Chapter 8 needs a couple more scenes.

I'm going to stick to my once a week schedule, because the writing is harder now that I've exhausted most of the already written material from the old story.

Earlier today, I remembered that Alan Rickman was no longer among the living and I cried. Still grieving for him, which surprised me. He will remain alive in the movies and in my heart, I guess.

Nothing much else happening here. Just scribbling, scribbling. Loving it. I wonder if my new antidepressant has something to do with my ability to write again?

Love you guys.

Horrible event yesterday. Horrible. Triggered my anxiety, although I count it a win that I made it to work for half a day.

Spent the rest writing madly. The muse is still here, and The Binding now has four chapters up. Chapter four is over 10k words by itself. Heh. I combined the old chapters four and five so the flow wasn't interrupted. I like the characterizations better with the rewrite. And the plot is similar...I'm trying to incorporate a tiny bit of canon.

Works better in my opinion. Please read and let me know what you think? Kudos are fine, but I love comments. :) (Doesn't everyone?)

Wrote another 2k words today.

The Tony Awards last night was fantastic as usual. I love watching that programme. The Hamilton company chose a song I wasn't expecting...probably so they could sing "...history has it's eyes on you..." to Lin-Manuel Miranda. Hee. I like to think so. Still, it was nice to see "The Battle of Yorktown" performed. And they decided to do it without their muskets, which was nice.

That's it for now. Must go to bed since my scribbling has been keeping me up too late.

I absolutely adore my gifts from the [livejournal.com profile] sshg_giftfest, The Salute, which is just perfect. I was, and am, still blown away by the way you worked all the fandoms into one fic and then the illustration was just so well done that I feel like the luckiest recipient of the entire fest.

I am so very grateful for your extremely generous gift. Thank you so much.

And to my friends, if you like Harry Potter, Star Wars and/or Star Trek, click the link and enjoy a well-written, very imaginative story and a beautiful piece of art.

My offering this time, for [livejournal.com profile] madeleone was To Have and Have Not (The Severus and Hermione Version).

Content: Elements of Noir. Off page torture. Off page death of OC family. Gruesome death of someone who deserves it. No other warnings apply.

Summary: Severus has left the Wizarding world and is living quietly as a Muggle boat captain in Dover, UK. He uses his boat to take tourists to Calais until Unspeakable Hermione shows up to ask a favor.
Author's Note: Prompt #5: After the war Severus survived he dropped out of the wizarding world. Several years later Hermione unexpectedly meets him again. Where do they meet, and what are they doing now? I'd like to see Severus doing something other than Potions or teaching, could be a related field or something completely different.
