Not doing so well about the "being around more on LJ" thing. Still working on that. I wish it were easier to change habits. I'm still trying to get myself to sleep at 1 or 2am instead of, oh say...5am. Or worse.

Aaanyway, November will be a scarce month, because (wait for it...) I'm doing NaNoWriMo this year. I won in 2004, and failed pretty spectacularly last year but...it's FUN. I'm excited for it, and have been more excited about writing in general recently. Being writing buddies with Bri really helps me, because I don't feel alone, and feel more compelled to meet my goals, I guess. I've been trying to do the "write every day (even if it's just a little)" thing again, and it's nice. I started two new fics in the past few days (a Bleach one and a Gintama one) and have been working a little on some of my unfinished ones, and while in the grand scheme of things it's not all that much, it just feels great and productive. I'm proud of myself, and I'm liking what I'm writing. That's kind of a weird feeling to me, honestly. And hopefully I don't come back to it in a day or two and read it and go, "ugh"--I'm trying not to be so critical of myself. That's easier said than done, of course. But I'm going to do my best to keep it up, and writing every day in October is gonna be good practice for NaNoWriMo, too. I love feeling excited about this.

So...who else is in this year? There are a few I know of, but my flist is large. Let me know! For anyone who might want to add it, my account is here. Also, I'm not 100% sure yet I'll be using it this year, but if I do post up what I'm writing (before it's edited, I mean) and you have any desire to read it, it'll be at with_a_key.

And just because...
