Still stuck

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
I'm still stuck on my story but not so bummed about it. I was bitching about it on a forum that I visit and someone told me, "The more you worry and try to force it, the less you'll get done." So ... I'm just chillin' for now and writing a bit here and there as inspiration strikes me. I feel better about the whole process.

I know I have trouble with the ends of stories and series and someone pointed this out. Also, I've been working on this series for four (?) years now. I'm just out of ideas. I'm hoping to get this story done and an epilogue. Then, I'm done, and I swear I'll murder the person who says, "Oh, love this. MOAR PLEASE"

The fest is open to any writer, artist or podficcer aged 18+. All characters and ships from the wider Potterverse (including Fantastic Beasts and The Cursed Child) are welcome. When considering what constitutes 'horror’, feel free to think broadly – psychological thrillers, dark and twisty angst and chilling tales, mindfuckery and so on, as well as the classic tropes of the genre. Creations focused around creatures such as werewolves, vampires, zombies, inferi, acromantulas, dementors and the like are very welcome, also elements of the Potterverse itself that are 'horrific’ – the Horcruxes, splitting of souls, Imperius and so on. Claiming is open for this year's HP Horror Fest.

Please send your fandom news to the Daily Snitch.

Quarterly check in Imbolc 2018

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Let me summarize:

Took some time off in December and road-tripped to Arizona to see the Middle Spawn and the Spawnlettes. It was a good trip, though driving could have gone somewhat better. We didn't make as good of time as I would have liked, but we had several days with the family, and no one was killed during the drive.

New started with a bang and the workload jumped with it. Over the past few years we've had a busy time between October and February,but this year it's been a bit different. Still, it's been fairly good. I've faced some new challenges in the prep room, and its been good for me.

Had a bit of a scare with an old friend who is in some legal trouble. For a day we thought that they had chosen to take their life, but they were found. Now, a few weeks later, we had them over for dinner last night and it was a good evening. I can only hope that they will be able to face what is coming.



We have taken on a boarder, sort-of, kind-of, in that we are leasing out a portion of the yard to a very nice lady with a tiny house and a sheep :D.

With her having some work done around the yard, the whole house is looking better. We've taken on paying couple of the guys that did work for her to take on taming the rest of the yard. The house and yard is looking so much better. I am thankful that we are able to do this, and in turn help someone else with providing a job and financial help.



Youngest Spawn, who has been suffering from a variety of abdominal issues, and finally was able to have some procedures this week. They found a suspicious bruised area in her stomach, and one lonely polyp in her intestines. We hope that the testing will give us some information about what is going on so any good thoughts will be appreciated.
