Ms. Marvel

So I picked up the first issue of the new Ms. Marvel after hearing a bunch of good press about it. A female Muslim superhero? I'm down. It's as good as I expected. The main character is adorbs and she writes Avengers fanfic. She has a hedgehog sidekick. Definitely going to be making the weekly pilgrimage to the comic store for more of this.

True Detective

Started watching True Detective on HBO tonight. It's a crime procedural with a Lovecraftian twist. Only got through the first two episodes so far, where the King in Yellow is just a passing mention. Episode three is supposed to start the really freaky stuff so I'm hoping to watch more of it soonish.

Kitties

My Valentine's Day present was a kitten! She's super sweet and adorable, loves everyone she comes across. We're not sure yet if she's going to get along with our existing cat. She's confined to the spare bedroom for now while we do the slow introduction. Going to start trying to integrate the cats over next weekend, and hope they get along. If they don't, I have a friend prepared to take the new kitty off our hands.

Writing

Seasonal Affective Disorder and depression have been kicking my ass. I've got a ton of stuff in the works, but I can't seem to go anywhere with them. It's like the part of my brain that comes up with plot just shut off. Like, I can write if I know where I'm going, but once I hit the end of what I've pre-plotted it's just like deeerrrr, what are words? Now would be a great time for some editing but I don't have much that needs editing.

I keep meaning to post and then getting distracted. January and February have been... special. Not bad, just different. Haven't been home much, which means my DVR is constantly full to bursting. Starting to get back into the swing of writing. I have a pinch hit for [community profile] smut_fest which is going to be AWESOME (and my regular submission was pretty awesome too in completely different ways). One of the things that amuses me eternally about that challenge is that I keep getting all the incest prompts. I think I'm 6/6 or something like that. Not complaining, just greatly amused.

I started watching Downton Abbey and I am ADDICTED. That show is so good. We should be finishing off season 1 Thursday and I'm hoping that season 2 comes up on Netflix shortly.

My second published short story will be coming out in May. I wrote "What It's Worth" for the "Like It or Not" dubcon anthology. It's a contemporary piece (something I haven't done in a while) with a surly writer and the mafia. I'm thinking about doing a sequel to it if another anthology call comes out that fits the idea I have.

I'm also writing for the Grimm Exchange, which will be my first attempt at writing Grimm. I've had so many Grimm plot bunnies running around my head. Time to break the ice and jump into the fandom. ^__^

I am on Twitter, unsurprisingly as @gryvon. If anyone else is on Twitter (I know Sejitsu and Avocado Love are ^_^) let me know cause I need more fandom in my twitter stream.

So my [profile] hp_3fofun story has been turned in, full of Snape, Draco, and Harry goodness. The story will appear on the community LJ sometime after November 1st and then my site January 1st. I think this is the first challenge comm I've run into that requests an exclusive on posting for a certain amount of time, which almost made me not participate. But the story idea was awesome and it'll make its rounds to other sites eventually.

I can't wait for December 9th and getting my first short story published! Looking into doing a lot more anthology submissions, and November's going to be insane with NaNoWriMo. I will get my novel done.

This month is all about KakaIru, with maybe some Psych (aka the third part in that Psych series I've been doing where Shawn's actually psychic) thrown in if I get done early with the rest of it. And then that kills off my signups up until Yuletide. But it's a good thing October is light because...

...the rest of the rambling )
