I've been doing a bit of writing lately. I've got three stories going right now--sort of. I've got one in progress that goes along with the roleplay, and it's going well. It involves Dakota McCabe, from my Lucky Raven stories.

I'm also planning a fanfiction mashup story that also involves Dakota. I don't write a lot of fanfiction, but I've been watching Highlander lately, and I wondered what would happen if Dakota, an ex-Marine and former journalist, came across Duncan MacLeod--either saw him fight, win and have a quickening, or saw him die and come back to life. With his sense of curiosity, there's sure to be some kind of adventure in there.

And the third is in the character journaling stages. I've been writing character journals for Damian and Casandro, two of my Immortal Watchdogs characters. They're brothers from Crete. I have a good grasp of what Damian's story is--or at least his purpose. I've been stumped on Casandro's purpose for a while now, but I think it's finally coming together. This is what I love about character journaling. You can learn a lot about the character, but you can also learn some things about their backstory and their current and future stories. Awesome! :D

My mini is doing well. She's not as fast as she could be, since she's got a single core processor, but she's great for writing. She's my main word processor, but I've done a little writing on the biggie, too. The biggie is having some problems. That's nothing new, since he's about three or four years old now. We plan to take him to a computer repair shop at some point. If he can't be fixed, we may just get another mini laptop.

Jeff and I went down to Moka Joe's on Tuesday. We took both the mini and the biggie. Jeff used the biggie to check out some companies on Angie's List, and he loved it! I wrote a character journal entry on the mini and talked to Maria. I also got a free decaf Americano. It was a good night. :)

The pupplet and the kitty are both doing well, and we've only lost one fish recently. It was one of the neons, and it wasn't totally unexpected.

Jeff started laying carpet in our third bedroom. He also repainted the walls. He had to move everything out, of course, and he put our empty 20-gallon aquarium into the master bedroom. I want to set it up for fire-bellied toads, but I need to find out more about keeping them. And I'm not sure what to do about the crickets. If I can buy some in town instead of going eleven miles to PetCo, that would make it easier. I don't want to raise them myself, but that's a possibility, too.

My mom went back home last weekend. She had a good trip, but she was kind of annoyed with security for making her take off her coat and shoes, and I guess they had a hard time getting her off the plane at the other end. But now she's home, and all is well! :)

And my battery is starting to get low, but the nearest outlet is too loose to hold the power supply's plug in place, so I'd better wrap this up for now. I hope you're all doing great!

I've finally finished the summary for my new story, thanks to the patience and brilliant input of a friend of mine. Now I have two people reading it to look for inconsistencies; needed changes, additions, etc.; and anything else that needs to be fixed.

Tomorrow, I plan to work on a couple of character journal entries. One will be connected to this new story, and one is part of a blog story I've been working on. I'm more happy about this than any person has a right to be! :D

And to top that off, I looked out through the window a few minutes ago and saw this:



Breathtaking, isn't it? :)

And now, I'm about to get off here and relax. It's getting late, and I need some time to unwind before bed.

Have a good one!

Lois
