brilligspoons: (needs to be least 3 times bigger)
Normally the first day back to work after vacation is terrible, but today is terrible magnified 1000 times. I'm pleased that things seem to have gone smoothly while I was gone, and it's relieving to know that most people managed to do what I needed them to without a lot of problems, but it's those few who just can't get their shit together no matter what that are bugging the shit out of me. Just do what I tell you! Don't argue with me! Those are the rules!

Ugh.

Anyway, vacation was mostly great. The kids were well-behaved 99% of the time, the museum was awesome (except for the panic attack I had), and the private suite we had at Yankee Stadium spoiled me for everything ever. Also we went for manicures on Saturday, and my nails are all glittery and wonderful.

I worked on my big bang a little by repurposing a piece of a Teen Wolf story I'd started last summer and never did anything with. I was bummed that it was just sitting in my gdocs gathering dust, so I'm happy that it was easily editable and fits with what I want to write. Still need to outline the rest of the story, but it's nice to have a beginning at least, you know? (Of course, everything I write now will be jossed by the start of season 3 in a few weeks, but whatever, it can be AU as of season 2, it's cool.)

Uh, I also started watching Vikings. I didn't expect to like it quite so much, but it's pretty great, and I want all of the fic for it immediately. I even wrote a little fluffy thing last night for [livejournal.com profile] pearl_o. :D? And there's another story I have in the works as of this past Thursday. Most of you probably don't care. )

...that may end up being longer than a ficlet. Balls. But yeah, that's a thing.

I suppose I should get back to work now. Hmph.

Doug told me I'm not allowed to start something with this person while I'm loopy and in so much physical pain I can barely breathe, so I'm going to rant about this here instead. This is a link to the exchange details; I'll just quote the highlights.

I’ve already messaged some of the best authors that I know on tumblr (and I’m sure there are many of you I don’t know about) to see if they’re willing, so now I’m going to ask ALL OF YOUUUU.

I’m not very good at telling you what’s going on so I’ll just put it in a bulleted list. Not everyone can get in, mostly because I want everyone to get something on a level of writing that they’ll enjoy, instead of mentally beta’ing it.


and

Each entry must have your username, an example of your writing ( at least 2k words) and the things you WON’T write.

If accepted, I’ll send you an ask.


and then

Also, I’m going to be in the SS as well. but I’m a right bastard so I’m going to pick whoever’s prompt I like best. As for who’s filling my SS, please let me know if you’re thinking about filling it, and I’ll send it to you. That way I’m not picking THE BEST AUTHOR, OMG OMG. but just someone who’d enjoy writing it.


Words cannot express how much I want to punch this person in the face.

Like. How much elitist douchebaggery can you fit into one tumblr post? What about anything this person says is appealing to writers? And, disregarding the elitism, does she or he even comprehend how incredibly MEAN this is? Is this really what fandom is about? I'm not denying that there are some shit writers out there. I'm not particularly good at catching my own (many and varied) mistakes, and I consistently forget to ask for a beta before I post something. Should that preclude me from participating in an exchange? Do my poor writing choices mean I don't deserve something nice written for me?

IN CONCLUSION SOMETHING IS ROTTEN IN THE STATE OF DENMARK AND I AM FINDING IT REALLY DAMN HARD NOT TO SAY SOMETHING DIRECTLY TO THE PERSON RUNNING THIS THING.
