For this reason (among others) I've been a lousy reader of LJ and and even worse commenter. I can barely even focus enough to read a drabble. Considering I still want people to read and comment on mine, this really sucks.
I'm incredibly behind on getting drabbles (and other fics) posted to Fanfic.Net, Whofic, and A03. I have three days off next week and may just sit at Cafe Petra all day drinking mint tea and getting caught up on that.
You don't even want to know how far behind I am reading fanfic. Let's just say I'm getting to stories from LAST YEARS MMOM! So yeah, I suck. If you're posting fic now, even if it's my favorite pairing, or sure-fire, guaranteed real!Jack fic absolutely tailor made to warm the cockles of my bastard!Jack loving heart....I'm probably not reading it, unless you send me a PM with the link and PROMISE it will meet the criteria.
The one thing I have made progress on is the NOVEL. I've finished Chapter 10 and posted it to the Novel Filter. I've also developed more and more doubts about the whole thing. I may have to finish and then burn it and move on to something else. I just don't know. The story that seemed so important for me to write in 2008 just doesn't seem to matter anymore. The rage that fueling it has dissipated considerably. If you're not on the Novel filter and you want to be; please let me know. I'm looking for brutal honesty or honest brutality. Whatever it takes to tell me if there's any point in pursuing this.
I was really tempted to do some comfort eating last night. A big plate of Vietnamese food was calling my name, but I did manage not to go there. I really want to keep it as clean as possible until the trip. Less than a month to go and I'm basically just hanging on by the proverbial thread until I get on the plane.
Parting stray thought:
Am I hypocrite for loving how close my OTP of Gibbs/Fornell are to canon on NCIS when I bitch about fanservice elsewhere? I figure as long as Bellisario doesn't start tweeting about slashfans or using a smushname (Fibbs?), I'm in the clear.
