If you're around to read this, I'm assuming you're not attending Wincon. Cool, neither am I! What I *am* doing is having fun at win_non_con all weekend long. On Saturday, from 10 to 5 (EST), the awesome dotfic and I will be hosting a writers' workshop and we hope you'll play! Seriously, there was major dorking out in the planning of this, so it should be fun. Friend the comm and see!
A heads-up: the next Ben and Dean scene, the big one (in terms of length and in terms of Sam's return) has been drafted and thoughtfully betaed. I have lots to do to get it to a place where it's postable, but I think I should be able to have it up by my birthday. Whoo!
I might also post a piece of UTTER CRACK on my birthday because it's an idea I've had in the back of my mind for quite some time and I woke up this morning with a couple of the scenes already pretty much written in my head. Awesome.
My last bit of writing news: I signed up for NaNo! This will be the first November that I don't have a massive deadline at work, so I figured I should take advantage of that. I'll be writing SPN fic for that - a Sam-centric piece called "Silk Road." My girl janissa11 pointed out that, for a hardcore Deangirl, I write a lot of Sam fic. She's not wrong. I'm just backwards, okay? Sheesh. Anyway, I was planning to post my daily snippets here, under a cut - no NaNo journal or anything like that. As always, feel free to ignore or comment as the mood takes you. I'm interested in the reaction this piece - a Sam/OMC story at its heart - will get.
Lastly, you should not trust ANYTHING I SAY because I have apparently gone insane. Or blind(er). Because I walk to the subway every morning and I pass a bus-stop ad that features a white person with kind of a layered bob haircut who's tilting on a stool in that "hey-I'll-be-your-bestest-buddy" manner that is supposed to ingratiate talk-show hosts to us. And I honestly thought, "Jon Bon Jovi is getting his own talk show? How strange!" And then I got closer and realized, no, that's Martha Stewart. (But seriously, when did JBJ and MS get indistinguishable haircuts?)
