holdouttrout: parrot that says *thinks at you* (telepathic_parrot)
Today for Halloween I went as The Ghost of Bridesmaids Past. I wore a lilac bridesmaid dress that almost still fits, with a strategic tank to and sweater, a dried but well-preserved wrist corsage from a wedding earlier this year, and then I did my makeup so I looked undead. Quite effective, actually!

I was planning to do NaNo, but September and October have convinced me that that way lies madness and bad things. So instead I'm going to do [livejournal.com profile] wrisomifu, which is ten awful minutes of writing each day in November. That means tomorrow. Ugh. I feel like hiding already.
holdouttrout: not your ordinary fish (Tealc/Vala)
I don't know how many of you have used or want to use Scrivener. It's a writing program for the Mac, one that I've heard about but haven't used. Anyway, right now they're doing a special promotion for NaNoWriMo, where the free trial lasts from now until December 7, and if you win NaNo, you get 50% off. You can get the details here.

Two Recs:

[livejournal.com profile] rowan_d wrote a STARGATE fic. Like Fire on Wind, which is broken Sam and angsty and lovely. It's Sam/Jack, although I felt it could possibly be read as friendship, (as long as you read everyone in love with everyone else, like I do). Rowan took Sam's tendency to pessimism and wove it into a fic where Sam is alienated from the team by her own feelings and actions.

The second one is a much older fic--really a series, but I just re-read it and just...love it to pieces. [livejournal.com profile] cofax7's This is Not Wartime. OT3 (Sam/Jack/Daniel) apocafic set after season 7, where the team is all broken and adrift and trying desperately to eke out a victory against the Goa'uld who have conquered Earth.

Thirty-six minutes.

During NaNo, I'm hoping to keep up with reading everyone's entries (though not necessarily fic, sadly), so I shouldn't miss anything. Theoretically. I will be on vacation some of the time, though. Argh! What was I thinking!?

Anyway, I'll be around. I may even post, still. We'll see how it goes.

It's over 6,000 words, has a plot (if not a theme), and a tentative title. It's...

My team fic!!!

That's right. I have finished the second-to-last draft of the teamfic for [livejournal.com profile] sg1teamficathon.

*does happy dance*

I guess this means I get to do NaNoWriMo for real.

Oh, boy.

(Also, today I had at LEAST six firetrucks outside in my apartment complex as well as an ambulance. Turns out there was a fire in another apartment here. From the looks of it, nothing too serious, thank goodness.)

I SWEAR I'm going to get both the team ficathon and apocalypse_kree DONE before Nov. 1. It's going to happen.

But just in case you all thought I was sane?

Official NaNoWriMo 2007 Participant

Yeah.

I'm known as holdouttrout over there, too. Just in case y'all are as insane as I am.
