Apparently last night I was posting/editing entries? At least I didn't put up anything embarrassing or wrong. Oh, vodka. You're good to me at least. And while I have the mother of all headaches, it's not too bad. First hangover of the year! \o/
Currently, Maddi is singing Christmas songs (I'm going to strangle her omg) and they're waiting for their mother, who said that she would be here at 10AM. Rule #1: never trust anything that comes out of Bri's mouth.
Since it's the first day fo 2017, it's time to get my pledge tracker and pace tracker set up for getyourwordsout. 200k this year (or more) to be written. I've got the Ficmas stories to finish. Two of those are Christmas themed...Christmas in January, still doable. And then I have to start my Stydia Big Bang.
Some new things I'll be doing this year: I'm gonna do an F-List Friday (lovingly nicked the idea from aravishermione) that way if I'm not able to keep up with entries, I can still keep up with everyone one way or another. And I'm still working out the kinks on it, but I'm going to be posting the plot and summary I have for my novel that I'm going to be writing this year.
I hope that everyone had a great New Years Eve, and your first day of 2017 is off to a great start. I'm off in search of coffee and my headphones. Oh, and feel free to take a peek at my 2017 Scrapbook, linked in my sidebar on my journal!

GetYourWordsOut: Year Nine!

Yesterday was really exhausting. Facebook is a toxic place, folks, never read comments. I've pretty much sworn off social media for a bit. I've decided to try and focus on the positive, if there is such a thing I suppose. I told mom I was going to get a "Fuck Trump" sticker and slap it on my laptop because I'll never accept Hitler 2.0 as my president. I would love for someone to ask me why it was there, because I'm not going to hide my dislike of this guy, ever.
It has been a long, tiring day with the kids and there's no school because of Veterans Day tomorrow. Mom had to call out of work because her feet hurt so bad that she was in tears, and it's going to be a week at least before she can get in with the endocrinologist. First she has to go tomorrow (her day off) and get all of her files faxed over so the doctor can review them. Kevin didn't buy my rock salt lamp (shocker...) but when my sister gives me money in December from her school money, I'm going to buy myself a Kindle. It'll be my birthday present to myself since I'm sure no one else (re: family) is going to get me anything. I'll be lucky if my own father remembers.
But okay, let me distract myself and focus on some positives. Teen Wolf starts in 5 days. I am writing such a happy little ficlet (I think that ohrioles is going to approve...). That's about as positive as I've got right now.
Enjoy your weekend, my lovelies. Stay safe.
I had this thought for my PWE assignment, and you guys always give me such lovely feedback
So I was thinking since the person I'm writing this for wanted the Hale family alive, it would be the Hale family that started this company...almost like Leverage in a way. It would have been started by Talia and...her husband who has no name yet. Peter would have been involved at one point. Deucalion and Deacon since Deucalion was once an ally before Gerard Argent came along. The prompt calls for person C to be taken care of by person A and B (in this case, Derek to be taken care of by Lydia and Stiles) after a job goes wrong. I was thinking that Cora gets kidnapped by Deucalion in some sort of revenge plot. Kind of close to canon, actually, as he had Cora in 3A. So Lydia and Stiles have to help Derek get her back, while keeping him from doing dangerous things in the process.
Yay? Nay? Go to sleep Sara? (lol)
...yep, that's all I've got for now...
+ I wrote over 3 pages today on my Big Bang and got it all typed up!
+ My brother says I can use Photoshop with this computer, as long as I run it off my flash drive, so I'll be reopening blanksquares and polysexuals very soon!
+ Our electric bill is honestly the lowest I've ever seen it!
+ I've had entirely too much caffiene today!
/that is all.
Someone sent me the prompt the other day, to do a Bitten AU. They asked for Derek/Lydia, with Derek as Clay and Lydia as Elena. As a fan of both shows, I'm actually really inspired by this prompt. I think I've just managed to fit everyone from Teen Wolf into a role from Bitten, though I'm altering the lore from both to make this work to my liking. It's going to require a little bit of research (and a Bitten rewatch) to pull this off. Any thoughts from my flist on the idea? I'm going to use this for my big bang.
