Oh, thank heavens it looks like summer is returning!!!! (Please, allow me my dreams! ;-) )
Weather’s picked up a bit. True, the breeze blowing this morning is much cooler than I would like, and the sky is turning to that crispy blue which is almost as beautiful as Justin and Jacks’ eyes, but it’s NOT supposed to be up there behind wispy little fluffy clouds, because it’s a sure sign fall’s on it’s way. URGH. Oh, shit…. I SO don’t do winter… :((
But okay, for the moment the sun is shining, and I should really actually be sitting outside, typing this.
However, even in spite of my grass threatening to crawl into my house (I am absolutely convinced this is the longest they’ve ever been!), and going back to work tomorrow, and burning my hands this morning doing dishes, I am smiling…*drum roll*
I can’t believe this, Purr-fect Love’s chapters 10, 11 and 12 are… are… *sniffs*
sent for beta, they are actually tthhiiisss close from finished.
That’s more than six months sweat and tears and swearing and giving up a couple of times. Yes, of course I’m being a drama queen about it, but let me try to put it into perspective. I’m a project manager in an IT company, I am NOT a writer. Apart from having written tender responses for seven years, trying to convince some CEO somewhere that our services are the best he can ever hope to engage for implementing an HR and Payroll system - in spite of the price tag - and writing bitchy emails on a daily basis (I do like those!), I have no experience in writing fic, not even in my mother tongue. So this, to me, actually sticking with it, is so, SO huge.
Uhm… jaaaa… I haven’t started on chapter 13 yet, the last one, but that’s all going to be ridiculously romantic fucking, it just CAN’T be that difficult, can it?
I’m not promising anything on the posting dates, since it would be better to post all three of the next chapters close together, and there’s still some way to go in finishing the beta.
Of course there is no way I could ever have hoped to have done this by myself, and I will do the official “thank you’s” later, but in the meantime, to my gang of cheerleaders (have to add the clichéd “you know who you are!” bit here!), and everyone that’s been following so patiently, *smooches and big hugs*
Having gushed about my almost-done-touch-wood-accomplishment, my 3:08 am fics for the boys4all
prompt are not going to write themselves, so me, Beam and Thumpa are moving outside now, to our favourite spot under my thorn tree.*blows you kisses*
