I should be writing but I am avoiding it. I've just gotten to the porn and, as often happens to me, I'm just not in the right headspace.

I've been backreading my dwircle and want to say: I LOVE YOU GUYS. You're so delightful and thoughtful and also fun and funny and perfect.

There's a lot of politics on my dwircle which is great, but also things I don't have the emotional energy to comment on, so if you're someone posting about that stuff, THANK YOU and I appreciate what you're saying and linking but I probably won't comment.

Life update: We've moved to Milwaukee. We're in a tiny (but cute) apartment with really great light and the ability to walk to literally everything we could need. The vet would be a bit of a hike, but we could get there on foot if we needed to. We're looking for houses nearby, because I expect to get promoted this year and get a huge bonus and raise that will pretty much wipe out our debt and allow us to put together a downpayment in record time.

Cat update: Jeeves went to the vet yesterday. We need to do a blood sugar curve on him this weekend, but we think that 3 units of insulin twice a day is the new normal. He stopped peeing on us on purpose, but he's still peeing on things, so... probably going to keep the cats out of the bedroom, which is both frustratingly hard and sad-making.

Writing update: I made my goal of 250,000 words in May, and it's a good thing because July came and work just knocked me off my feet (and is still doing so, and probably won't end until next year). I'll probably make 400,000 for the year even so, which is great, but I'm not able to write consistently in the mornings, which is frustrating. I also hit 1 million posted words a little while ago, and that was very satisfying. I've also managed to keep up a serial for the better part of the year (it's stuck on the porn) and that ends somewhere around Christmas, so I'm looking forward to diving into other projects next year.

I think that's all that's fit to print. I've not been doing much social media-wise (not even spending time on Twitter or tumblr - it's just been lack of time everywhere), so I'm not ignoring Dreamwidth, I'm ignoring everybody. I'm just now dipping a toe back in, so we'll see how that goes. Hi hi hi!

You weren't supposed to move to Milwaukee *after* I moved away! :D

Yay for writing!

Wow! That's amazing. I only just hit 200,000 at the start of November. I've been ill a lot this year, but still.

I better not say anything about being on the mend - so far, every time I thought I was finally getting better, it ended up getting worse again. It's very tedious. *sighs*

Virtual tea would be lovely. :)

Wow! So much yay for all your writing! \o/ \o/ \o/ I've had a relatively fallow year, alas.

And yay for Milwaukee! So glad you've found a good place to settle. <3

Ooh, yes, I should keep an eye out for fandom_stocking. I had fun doing treats for that last year.

And I'm only relatively fallow. I am working on a fic -- it's just coming out kinda slowly. I think part of it is that I need a new fandom. ;-P

Sounds like you've gotten a good place to live for now. Good luck with finding a house.

Oh man, the peeing. {{{hugs}}}

*waves hello wildly* I hope you're settling in well - it's so nice to hear from you! I'm glad kitty is doing somewhat better, but omg, cat pee is the worst. You have my sympathies on that front. (And on the other, bigger, more orange front, too)

Congrats on the word count.

That you combine that creativity with your day job and a marriage is -- inspiring. And it guarantees that I'll have more great fic to read.

Milwaukee! Just a bus ride away. Maybe we could stroll in a museum or sip tasty bevs at a cafe?

*sigh* Not that great, honestly. But I'm trying to not let the election results dominate my brain and my mood, because anxious gerbils spinning around don't help.

I need to post, because it has been waaaay too long, but I keep getting brainlock about it.
