Dear God, I have to go write papers. But before I do, I should probably invest in some -- sea-legs or something. The ground is a treacherous place under my feet today; it keeps wobbling and moving.
3. I'm wide awake/ She's upfront upshot upstart up in every case/ The kind of girl that whispers thank god for you
I wish I might
1. Finish anything that's got a plot line.
2. Write something that people don't immediately react to as being sad.
3. Sleep a little bit in the next few days.
I hereby resolve to
1. Write more feedback than I do, and get over my bizarre insecurity re: emails and feedback, where I let myself get crippled by fear of not saying it *just right* when I try to tell someone what I like about their story.
2. Calm the hell down about my yuletide assignment.
3. Do laundry.
I know I can
1. Be more confident in my writing.
2. Trust myself more.
3. Do the dishes.
I Desperately Want
1. A smaller waist-line.
2. A starbucks peppermint mocha latte whatever the hell it is that tastes like delicious delicious mint in coffee format.
3. A kitten.
I hope you know
1. That the human head does not weight 8 lbs, no matter what that cute little boy in Jerry Maguire says.
2. That I appreciate each and every one of you, more than you probably know due to my weird fandom insecurity.
3. That the deep parts of the ocean are a fascinating place.
And, some story recs:
1. No Angel Came (SV, Clark/Lex, Spoilers for Spell) by rivkat - This is a beautiful, heartbreaking story. RivkaT knows Lex -- I mean, she really *knows* him, and writes him utterly flawlessly. Each detail in this story, each line, has a gem in it -- it's fucking note perfect. This is Lex Luthor, being slowly slowly pulled apart, and you need to read it.
2. Chrysalis (dS, Fraser/Rayk) by cherryice - This story isn't told so much, as unfolded somehow. The author deals out the details one by one, and you don't know what you're looking at until the very end -- it's like impressionism, through story telling, and I really love it. The RayK voice is just so *there* and effortless to read, really. There's nothing about this story that feels forced -- it's this slow unwinding, and it's gorgeous.
