So, I've either had a revelation or lost my mind. I've signed up for a Last Author Standing.

Yes, I've been swallowed up by True Blood writing.

I mean look at this pretty. It begs for you to write about Eric's childhood by the North Sea and the skills Sookie has to show him. ;)

Plus the TB coms are so fun and amazing. So here's hoping it goes well. Come play if you're in the fandom too. :)

OMG look at him rocking this blue sweater! Unf! Unf! Unf!

A little How To for you lovelies. This is how to create a custom filter on your friends list with some instructions. Sometimes certain people or communities have things you don't need every day, but you still want to keep track of them, this is how to do it. Hope you find it helpful.

Screen captures and directions.Collapse )

Hope you have found this informative. If you have any questions, let me know.

1hour2write Notice

For those of you who might be interested in dipping your toe into something new.

1hour2write is a community that lets you set aside 1 hour (and a bit) each week to meet up with other writers, go write, and come back to discuss how you did.

Chat tonight: 8:30PM (EDT - 7:30 Central, 6:30 Mountain, 5:30 Pacific)
AIM Chat Room Name: onehour2write
Ping us at onehourmod on AIM if you need an invite.

Chat is open to writers of all fandoms and genres. It's time to set aside one hour to write, and a little more to communicate with other writers in a supportive community meant to encourage writing in general. Pull up a spot and get ready to write!

If you are having connection issues for the AIM Chat, we would like to suggest using the free web messaging site

We're changing up the schedule a bit for the next couple of weeks to see if we can accommodate more writers. The schedule is as follows:

Depending on the traffic, we might change it again in July, but for now, these are the days that were the most popular in the poll and that the mods could accommodate.

CSI Fic - I Do

AUTHOR: jenbachand

DISCLAIMER: I made no money from the writing of this fic.

NOTES: A gazillion years ago someone suggested Jude's I Do as a good songfic for angsty GSR. As I wasn't in a place for it then, I kept it in my mind, but here it is. It carries a hankey warning, as mingsmommy told me it made her weepy when she looked it over. Thanks to losingntrnslatn for the second read through.

I got a letter todayCollapse )

Writing Exercise

A while back que_quae_quod put this up in her journal and I was intrigued. Of course 500,000 other things have taken priority, but I'm feeling like I need an outlet this afternoon.

Write three short paragraphs, the first FEAR, the second ANGER, and the last PLEASURE, without using those words. Try to render these emotions by describing physical sensations or images. Try to make your language precise and fresh.

AbigailCollapse )

SaraCollapse )

SarahCollapse )

I'm not quite sure I got all the emotions by themselves, but I do feel better now. All done in my little LJ window with no editing. Hope you liked.
