Writing Update  
I wrote about 2-3 chapters of Light of the Towering Dark in December and January. It exhausted me and I'm moving into a new, harder phase of the story, so I'm going to take February off from it and work, instead, on the runner up from the poll I posted forever ago.

I've committed to putting 11,000 words on Higher Ed in February. That's about five chapters. Since it's an unbeta'd story, in theory they may even be out before the LOTTD, which I am editing also this month.

I also continue to work on all my other stories, because my brain never rests. I anticipate that this month will hold one chapter each of: the Friends and Lovers sequel, The Heart Outside, and His Private Ghost, as well as the normal This Land is Your Land updates and one-shots/poetry, as well as some Heroes fic and original poetry. I'm hoping for a chance to work on my original novel as well *eyes gleam* Ohhh, and I also have to write my Master's Thesis. No problem. ;)

I have yet to decide the future of Duality. I'm putting off that decision. It's fiction, so why not finish it? At the same time, it may just be too hard to write.

Um. God bless! You're free to share this info wherever you want. I just wanted to make myself accountable publicly ^^

Yay! How excited am I? WAY! But, you know, don't let this get in the way of your thesis. I suppose that's important too. And good luck!

Haha, don't worry. I don't write at work 99% of the time, and I spend most of my day there working on my thesis, so if it's not happening, it's for a reason besides writing fic. Thanks for all the encouragement!

LOTTD is a hard one for me to read but I love to learn from the important small steps they are taking toward being truthful with each other. I can't wait for another chapter of My Private Ghost - it is a selfish guilty desire of mine to have Jack stay to keep Ennis company. And as always I eagerly wait for future chapters of Higher Learning and THis Land is Your Land!

Yay for all of these. And, um, can I put in a little nudge for "Yellow House on the Right"? If you have a few spare minutes? :)

Actually, yes, you may! Thanks, I love that story too and I wish I had more time to get to it. The next chapter is barely started, though, so I don't want to make any promises. But prodding is appreciated. Thanks for the encouragement :)

Hi Jess. This is my first time on LJ since the morning of January 22nd. I've never gone this long without coming here but it seems it has been a slow process getting back in the swing of things I use to enjoy. I hope you are doing well and I'm sure as I read further and further back on my friends page I'll probably find a lot of difficult posts from a lot of my LJ friends.

I'm glad to see how your writing is going and you sound like you've got quite the plan - good for you. I hope you go back to Duality some day. I didn't read any Jack/Ennis fic for five days following Heath's death and I still haven't gone anywhere near J/H RPS. I love J/H RPS so much and I know some day I will get back there - just not quite yet. When I do I know I'll want to read Duality if by chance you are able to go there at that point. Who knows. Everything still seems so messed up.

I look forward to seeing you and so many others in San Fran - I'm glad this trip was planned and think it will be good for everyone once it finally gets here.

Just wanted to drop you line...

Lisa xoxo

No kidding. It's a little bit like a lifesaver. Grieving alone is hell, but I just tell myself that if I can hold off a few weeks longer I won't be alone any more. ♥

Hey Jess,

Thanks for that and as you can be expected to know I am excited about the LOTTD chapters that are coming up....edit, edit, edit....LOL.

Cheers, Ted

Hehe. Yes, actually, I'm a couple days behind on my editing. Don't tell anyone though *sssh*
