IP (term blatantly stolen from bexless)

First off, I want to direct you to my new pretty icon - look at it! Isn't it *great*!

Also - I (like everyone else and their five closest cousins) have a GJ now. I'm MidnightShow. I think I'm pretty much using it as a place to store icons. Which means I can get more - which is pretty damned neat. *G*

Anyway. I'm going to whine for a very brief period of time: I'm bored and someone should entertain me.

See, wasn't that whining short?

Moving on - so. My fiction prof. is the cutest thing *ever*. She's got a very, very thick Wisconsin accent (I feel weird calling it thick -- is that only applicable to brogues?). She says wagon "waygon" and it's really really adorable. What's not so cute is that I have to start writing a story for workshop. A long story. That's original. All the way created by me.

Dear sweet lord what a terrifying and exhilerating thought. Much like sky diving, that way.

It's literally got me shaking in my socks, but also jumping up and down. I'm *so* excited that there are no words, and yet totally convinced that it'll be crap. Which, I think, is how pretty much everyone is when they start writing, so it'll be okay. Oh god, original fiction here I come!

Okay, way too late, and I definitely have to wake up way sooner than I'd like, but I found myself reorganizing my documents, and coming across three things that desperately need finishing, and I'm going to make a list here so it's where everyone can see it. Hopefully this will motivate my ass and get me to actually do it

Things I want to finish in the vicinity of soon:

1. Post-Ryan fic
3. Chlark of pain
4. Lenafic
5. ADS8 (sweet God, after that one, only two more chapters to write and the monster will be done! After all So close to finishing the romance/genesis of Superman/Clark grows the fuck up fic and reclaiming my close...)

I feel like I can finish the post-Ryan fic within the next couple of days, really. The Chlark might be good airplane writing, if I'm up to it. Being home will be good for the writing, though. (Everyone will be asleep when I want to be awake and active, so you know -- I'll be in front of a computer typing furiously.) Lenafic and ADS8 are the things that are going to take the longest - though I feel pretty renergized on both. Being close to the end of something helps with that.

My goal as of right now (if fiction workshop writing doesn't pull me away and make fic writing time much, much smaller) is to finish all of that in the next three weeks. I'm not sure if that's entirely reasonable, but we'll see. Lyra will be in town next week, and spending time around her makes me writey. Also - I'm excited about that. Madly excited. Incredibly excited.
