It seems like forever since I've made a post just for the sake of posting. I haven't really been on LJ that much in the past year. I have been pretty active in Twitter if anyone wants to friend me there (I'm paraka12 over there).
I'm seriously thinking of giving up any claim to the thought of a RL from now until the end of the year and just devoting myself entirely to fannish things. God. I have issues with over commiting. Seriously.
Fannish things I'm currently working on:
(things are kinda of quiet right now, but I'm anticipating some crazy pinch hits near it's end)
-Signed up for podbang. Twice *winces* I did it last year and it was awesome. Although this year I'm pretty much only into Kradam but I signed up as part of grou slashpad so I'm likely going to have to do something non-AI for that one.
-I offered myself up over at help_pakistan
-Still slowly working on (this is not) a statement (seperis
mentioned tonight that she has about 50k written in sequels, so if I plan on podficing this 'verse, I better get my ass in gear). I'm hoping that when I go back to this I can get it to move a little more smoothly. I was having trouble getting some of the dialogue to work, since things that were easy to follow visually were getting a bit confusing in the podfic, but I spoke to seperis
about it at Vividcon and she gave me the go ahead to make edits to the text where needed. Yay! for extra dialog tags.
-I've also started to podfic Husband Revealing Magical Lemonade
. When I asked permission, I mentioned I probably wouldn't have time until December/January but I just couldn't wait to get started.
-I've somehow managed to start organizing a multi person anthology podfic of oldspice_kinkmeme
-Slashpad is also slowly working on a 100+K SGA podfic. I have no idea when it'll be done though. At this rate? Never.
-I spent last night trolling through the lastes aianonlovefest
prompts and picking a couple interesting ones out and may try my hand at one of them to get me into the groove of writing fic because next weekend is 3 day novel!
and I think I'm going to try and get some of that Kradam love at first
touch fic written.
So yes, I have a lot of fannish stuff on the go right now :S So when, at work, my boss sent out an email asking for people to do overtime, I just deleted it. Then she pulled me aside and was all "but you're the best
at this, are you sure you can't make some time?" And because I have issues with over commiting, I agreed to take on an extra project for over time. Except I have no time for it!
The only day this week I could do it was today. I was given about 200 lines to crossrefernce. In the two hours of overtime I did today, I got about 10 lines done. Kill me now. This project needs to be done next week and at this rate I'd have to give up sleep to get it done. But that's not everything. Monday, I'm leaving for Guelph straight after work because on Tuesday raxhel
is defending her Master's thesis! Which means I have Tuesday off. And Wednesday is the first day I'm volunteering at a place called Voice Print. So it's due Friday and I'll be able to work on it Thursday.
*sigh* Which means I'll likely spend this Sunday at work (I can't go in Saturday since I'm having friends over for a party).
Seriously, I'm so screwed.
