what do I put here?

 So writing has been minimal lately as I've started several home improvement projects.

I made the decision to finally get some new flooring installed as my kitties have not been kind to the carpet. I'm going with laminated wood (which you'd think is cheaper than hard wood, but it's not.) After many talks with my uncle, who builds homes, and different flooring people at different stores the laminate just made more sense for me. However, once I decided on new floors I realized I wanted to paint which also lead to me overhauling both bathroom closets. 

In the past few weeks I have learned how to remove trim, patch drywall, install corner bead and sort of create drywall texture. The texture is not my strong suit but I'm removing the rest of the builder grade towel racks in my bathrooms this week. I wish I'd decided to to that before I'd painted but oh well. I thought I could live with them and I realized I can't. They are just so bulky and white and not at all my style. Who knew you could have a style for towel racks? 

I feel like I should've done some before and after shots. I have some holes in my walls shots from when I took down the first towel rack that was behind a door for whatever reason. 

Also electrical is not that scary once you get a voltage tester. I can now install ceiling fans, light switches and outlets. 

Wish me luck and sanity! :) 

And possibly some writing for the August Fic-A-Day challenge!

Buffy Summers is a lot of things to a lot of people. Friend. Slayer. Lover. Dead. Hydra Asset. Assassin.

For years her friends thought their Slayer dead. When they learn she’s alive they’ll stop at nothing to save her. Steve Rogers, however, is just trying to keep her from killing his best friend.

welp I did it again

 Hello to anyone who might be still reading my journal! I went ahead and signed up for the [community profile] heroinebigbang and while I feel a smidgen anxious about it I do believe I can handle 10K words by the end of January. I signed up for Buffy Summers as my heroine (I find it the easiest to slip into her noggin so no need to challenge myself just yet). ;) 

However, I've wrote nada this month other than finishing a Faith scene that had been giving my fits. My goal is to get a little written for the 9th chapter of History for Sale tonight. Wish my luck and hopefully I'll come back with an update later this evening. 

Update:
I stayed up too late but I got 1300 words written. They need editing something fierce but progress.

Bye, September!

I didn’t write as much in September as I did in August, but I still wrote some and that counts for something. I managed to update History for Sale over on AO3 and I located my old notes for it so I can now finish the story. The next 2 chapters are written and there are 3 more to write before it’s complete and can work on a different WIP. I’m hoping to participate marginally in NaNoWriMo, but I’m not sure I’ll push myself to write the full 50K. Maybe start with baby steps and go for 25K.

I’ve been writing, but mostly Anita Blake. I’m not sure why either, but it’s words to paper—erm—Word and I’m not going to argue. Hopefully, I can finish the next scene tonight in the Faith centric short. Faith is mouthy and suspicious.

Wish me luck and I hope this finds anyone reading it happy and healthy.
