Since Photobucket switched in June 2017 to an exorbitant annual subscription fee for allowing images to be displayed on 3rd-party sites, I'm instead hosting the pictures here & linking to them in the stories they illustrate at the AO3.

...which usually happens when I go on vacation. I get in the habit of not writing much and then have to ramp back up. So, yeah, tomorrow and this weekend will be a ramp up because I'd kind of like to be done with the 3 novels in 3 months challenge.

That said, I am enjoying the current novel. Jaden is cute and causal. Padma is formal and serious and blushes every time Jaden flirts. They're both seriously forceful personalities and man, I might even get a sex scene or two into this story if they go the way I think they are. Whoot! It's been AGES since I got to write sex scenes! :D

I did not get my steps today because my hubby has apparently come down with the cold I had a while back. He's feeling mungy and heading for miserable. Lovely. I was hoping that it would pass him by since it hadn't hit in so long but no luck there.

Not much else happening right now, honestly.

Goals for tomorrow include writing more than 1200 words (like 2500 words or more), getting my steps and exercises, taking care of the hubby (as much as possible given that I'll be at work all day) and getting groceries. Because tomorrow is grocery day.

Off to bath and bed for me--goodnight everyone!

The mediator(?!?) is IN.

Because there aren't enough weird things happening in my life, I got an e-makl request from the admin of my meals provider asking me to call her as soon as. Well, I couldn't quite then because my cellphone was recharging. So I decided to try using SuM's phone. Only ONE problem. I'd never used that cordless before and couldn't see the display. Sigh. So I sent a reply saying I couldn't talk for a couple of hours. We kept e-mailing back and forth and I agreed to call her around 8. Well, she was busy (at home) when I called, so I waited until she called me back. We were on the phone for 48 minutes. OMG. It turns out she's having an interpersonal problem and was asking for my take on it. I gave her my advice. Let's see if it helps calm the situation.

The rest of my day was fairly calm. I slept in all the way to 8:16 which delighted me. Though the heat and humidity had broken, we were faced with torrential rains (more flooding of the river near me) and a sudden decrease in temperature. But not enough to convince Grumpy to show up. Sigh. That cat! I also sent an e-mail to my new friend at the blind group, asking if she was going to attend the next two functions ... and whether she'd like to go out for Chinese on the Saturday of the August long weekend. Alas, no reply yet.

Then I spent a really long time washing out my recycling. Yuck. But I got it ALL done. Unfortunately I was a little dozy when watching the usual TV shows tonight. Anyway, I think I'll return to reading "Rogue One" for a while. Tomorrow I plan to borrow a couple more library books. Whee.

Bye, Photobucket

Photobucket finally got around to replacing my images w/ their "pay up" graphic as I discovered today when I checked.

So, as I mentioned I'd do in this event in a recent post, I've deleted the Clothing & Guest Character image pages from the M7 Handbook. Hopefully I also found all the links to those pages in different places.

For the 3 images w/ 2 of my M7 stories at AO3, I'm going to make a post here in a few minutes displaying those images, then link to that post from the fics. All 3 can go in the same post, which will make them easy to find. If I ever want another image associated w/ a fic, I'll just add it to that same post.

Not as great as having the pictures right there at the bottom of the stories--I doubt any reader will bother to click a link to go elsehwere--but 3 images is not worth trying to find a new host that works on AO3. Unfortunately, Dreamwidth hosted images don't show there; or at least the test image I tried didn't show up.

I tried out flickr, but it's hopeless. I wasted way too much time trying to figure out how to get the image url. That's all I want! Just upload & give me the link. But, no, it's all runaround everywhere trying to find anything as simple as that. /kvetching

I've had that Photobucket account since 2004. That's a long time for something on the internet to last! I've deleted the account now. Won't ever use it again. Glad I did all the moving & replacing of images last week before the ugly replacement graphic showed up all over.

And there's the proof the new policy applies to even the tiniest users. I was using only 2% of the allowable space as a free user.

Chester Bennington

I've come to one conclusion in my life over music: it is powerful. It brings back memories that are painful and wonderful, it provides a soundtrack to my days... it gives me inspiration when I write. And I feel many people feel the same, cherishing bands and songs that remain special to them.

So I hope that it's not weird when I say that I am devastated by Chester Bennington's death. Linkin Park is a standby in my life, the only band that I adore every track on their albums and something I listen to in good times and bad. Somewhere I Belong is burned in my memory from my senior year of undergrad; What I've Done gets played every time I have a terrible day at work. I can belt out Nobody's Listening and Faint without thinking, and I still know the track listings of Hybrid Theory, Reanimation, and Meteora.

I feel strange as I admit I'm feel sadness over the passing of someone I didn't know or have any relation to, but I realize I do feel loss. Perhaps because he, in a way, was there with the music that (oddly, I know) gave me comfort when I was at the height of my ED, in the last terrible year of High School, and when my brother died and I was grieving him. I had just talked about going to an LP concert, too, looking forward to potentially taking a day off in August to see the band perform in NYC.

In the very least, I hope his family and his friends will find some level of comfort in knowing the fans grieve him too. And tomorrow I'll make a donation to the Suicide Prevention Lifeline and to TWLOHA.

Rest well, Chester. May you have found peace at last.

I'm home

Well, I got home yesterday but I was so tired after the drive that I just didn't get around to posting. Also didn't get around to getting this week's story ready for publication so there'll be another gap of a week. Next week though!

Work was insane once I got back. I thought I left good instructions but nope, not good enough. I need to do some cross training so the next time I go away (my birthday in September or October for a week-long seminar) I won't come back to a desk piled high with orders.

My own fault for not checking with my backup to make sure she knew what to do.

The trip itself was lovely. The drive down to Lincoln City, Or was nasty. Heavy traffic for a good 2/3 the way. But it was quiet and calm and relaxing once we got there. We visited Tillamook, saw the Air Museum there (super cool place, look it up--well worth visiting especially for history buffs), the Tillamook factory for lunch, ice cream and goodies (including far too much fudge), and then went back to Lincoln City. Second day we went on a hike to a really beautiful waterfall with a bouncy bridge, then drove down to Agate Beach which had no agates at all. Lots of sand and 25 mph winds but no agates. That was okay because we went back to Lincoln City and I found a slew of agates on the beach there.

Now I just have to figure out what to do with them. No clue yet. I'll figure it out eventually. Suggestions welcome as always from those who know how to handle agates.

Then we drove home yesterday and collapsed.

I got writing every day, not much but a little, keeping my streak alive. I just finished Chapter 3 of the new lesbian romance. Jaden's ex-date the Jerk Ravinder just got tased for being a jerk. I get to open the next chapter with Jaden whining because she messed everything up. Should be fun to write, provided I get the time to write much tomorrow.

Goals for tomorrow include exercises (because I've put on 3 pounds in the last month, damn it), writing (lots, please), too much work and not enough time, and making BBQ chicken with... something. Not sure what else yet.

Off to bath and bed for me--goodnight everyone!

Yes, she groans, I woke up at 4:45 feeling both cold and hot and couldn't get back to sleep. So I continued reading "Shrill" in bed. I finally got up a few hours later and opened the e-mail with the editing request. Oh, goody (as Peppa Pig would say), it was dead easy. Just a bit of tidying up in an invite to the Member of Parliament.

After that, I had brekkie and then relapsed back into bed. I guess that's where the 100 comes in. With the humidity, it felt like 100F today. So unpleasant. I guess that's why I dozed off to sleep for a couple of hours. Luckily, I woke up just in time to go kitty-hunting and feeding. Only two-thirds successful. There was also an e-mail of appreciation for the editing. ::beams::

I nodded off during the news (so I'm missing news, entertainment, and sports). I hope nothing happened today. But I managed to watch my game shows and tonight's MasterChef. I also finished "shrill". It was so stunning I'd actually like to own a copy - even if that's not all that impressive digitally. Anyway, now I have to try to catch up with what others were doing today. TTFN.
