I’d hoped to get started back up on tamingthemuse this week. The community had switched to Dreamwidth after the whole LJ user agreement fiasco, but it hasn’t been updated since the middle of August. I was looking forward to the structure of the community even if the words sometimes confounded me.
So I’m going to attempt to challenge myself. I located a random word generator (via a handy-dandy Google search) and it provided me with these 12 words. Over the next 12 weeks I’m going to tackle one a week and write story/scene/chapter inspired by these words. I’m going to go in the order the words were presented to me (no skipping).

Summary: Buffy’s outing with Aiden goes about as well as expected—which isn’t at all. Part of the 'nature always wins' series.

I wasn’t feeling the love because I’d forgotten to actually join the het_banghelp community. I’m a little slow on the uptake sometimes, but apparently they do twice weekly check-ins. Hopefully, that will help me keep on track.
Now to just get myself writing tonight… *stares blankly at the cursor*
My niece is graduating high school tomorrow. I'm proud of her because I know she hates school and this graduation was questionable last year, but she was also just to my knee and in diapers a few days ago. I swear.
I know she'd be incredibly embarrassed by her aunt remembering when I used to call her Stinkerbelle (because my god did her diapers stink) and that my favorite photo of her is of her "reading" the newspaper on the toilet when she was being potty trained way back when.
Now she has a boyfriend. Now she's graduating high school. Now she's considered an adult in the eyes of the law. I'm horrified by these concepts. Not because it makes me feel old (it does a little), but there's this big wide world out there and she's got to learn how to manage it. She barely managed high school.
Can't I wrap her up in bubblewrap and put her in a closet until she's 25 and ready to deal with all the shite that comes with living? (I know that would make it worse, but I'm still tempted.)
Do they sell cards that say "Welcome to adulthood. Yeah. We knew it sucks. But welcome anyway."
Let’s just ignore that my last update was in August, shall we? ‘Cause that’s sad and I have fantastic, fabulous news that also sort of explains my absence.
MY BIG BROTHER IS CANCER FREE!!!
In October D was diagnosed with stage 4 small cell throat cancer. He had 9 weeks of radiation and chemo and kicked its ass right into remission! (The doctors and nurses had something to do with it, but it was mostly D.)
I’d written a couple of posts tell you all (or anyone that’s still around) what was happening, but I deleted them rather than posting. I’m not good with the emotional shit when it comes to my own life. One day I’ll get better at it… or maybe not. *shrugs*
But all that is for another time because my brother is cancer FREE!

Just a friendly reminder that the twistedshorts August Fic-A-Day Challenge will be upon us soon. The title of the challenge is pretty self-explanatory, but the basic concept is to write 31 short stories(between 300 and 3000 words) and post them each day in the month of August.
