First of all, I changed the layout of the blog and it did something to the jump breaks... Like, if you click the link, it doesn't show you the rest of the post. I have zero idea why; need to fiddle around with it. Sorry. Bear with me.
Secondly, a few people asked me why I didn't post Color Me on Literotica yet, especially since I said I was doing that very thing! Well, I DID submit it, but it bounced back because I said it was an edited version of a previous work and the admins thought I was editing a current work. Oops. In the span of time it took me to realize it wasn't uploaded, I spotted about a zillion mistakes.* I'm working on finishing the story and I want to make the corrections, so I decided to just hold off on publishing to the site until the whole beast is finished. Roar.
As for the other pieces, they are coming. In small little bursts, but they're coming.
I might have mentioned this, and I'll bitch about it to anyone who will listen, that I'm in grad school right now. It is such a gargantuan pain in the ass. I'm serious. Rainey & I spoke recently and she said, "No one tells you how hard it is! No one!" That's true. The coursework itself isn't really what's challenging; it's the fucking obscene amount of it. At the end of the day I just want to eat one of those little cups of applesauce and huddle underneath the covers to watch something entertaining and simple, like Judge Judy or Cops (those people are wayyyyy worse off, am I right? ... Right?!). Seriously. This is my life now. Nothing to see here. Unfortunately that leaves me a little uninspired when it comes to writing, and even reading, anything fun. The good news is I have a bit of a break when the holidays come so perhaps I'll push something out around then.
I really want to read something during the break, too. Something wonderful and fuzzy and totally un-academic. And as blasphemous as it sounds, I also kind of miss reading books for the sheer fun of tearing them apart. Mean-spirited, I know, but we've gone over this. Lizard-sex and bug-sex was/is so hilarious to me.
Hopefully everyone is healthy, well and excited for the upcoming holidays. I kinda hate Thanksgiving and could go on a whole rant about it, but I'm containing myself.
Have an awesome Thanksgiving. Enjoy the day off (unless you work in retail. Then you're apparently fucked.). Catch Charlie Brown. Do a puzzle. Take a bath. Read a good book. Relax. I think we all could use it.
Talk to you later :)
* How freaking annoying is it when you realize after posting that you have a whole bunch of errors? Keeps me up at night, I swear!
P.S. I promise I won't come back on here only to complain and ruin Christmas! Santa already has me on his naughty list. Don't want to end up on his shit list; dude is fierce. The North Pole would harden anyone, folks, trust me.
