Advent Calendar Day 20

Have lots to say but no time to say it; you'll have to wait for the rants against Parcel Force, all the thank you's and the award thingy.

Open Day Twenty!

*sigh* I guess that means today is the summer solstice for me and from here on in the days just start getting shorter again.


Beautiful icons... If I had to choose a fave it would probably be the first one, but I love them all.

It's tomorrow, I'm just a stressed idiot.


Love the 'Tara' one with its blue swirls. Thought the solstice was tomorrow?

Congrats on the award thingy - very well deserved.

Er, yeah. I've been stressed...

You don't say?

Oh - you just did.

::soothing vibes::

These are gorgeous! You've captured Tara really well. :)

They're lovely. I especially like the one with the flowers.

Thank you! I like Tara, can you tell?

Oh these are simply beautiful. All have a very delicate feel. Very suitable for Tara.

All that despite my habit of plonking on the textures! ;)

Yes! Congrats on the Award thingy. Black Widow is one of your best.

Lovely icons. Just in time, too. Tara spoke to me today and I actually wrote a couple pages of next The Vorpal Blade chapter. Tis truly a season of miracles.

Hope you are busy with fun stuff.

I wish! Bloody Christmas crap. I like Christmas up until about mid-December, then I loathe all the inconvenience and expense. Like everyone else, I suppose.

More TVB? Whoo! Hope you don't need a beta until after Boxing Day... :) I have an outline of the next Working chapter, but I'm uninspired.

Hey, I was meaning to email you before I was swept up in the Christmas avalanche. You have been very quiet.

I'm the original Scrooge. I don't decorate, and avoid any celebrating that my family doesn't totally guilt me into.

Well, send your chapter along once you have something. I'm hoping to be at the coast next week, where I'll be internetless, but I should be available after that. If you are still uninspired we can try some brainstorming if you wish.

I probably won't get much of a chance to work more on TVB until next week and I don't think I post anything until I actually finish the story, so there won't be any hurry either way. I hadn't intended to work on it at all but Tara scolded so I had to.

I've been feeling the seasonal SAD, so even when I have had time, I've tended to sit and just watch TV instead of being sociable (and it is pretty unusual for me to watch TV). I got four seasons of the Dead Zone and watched them all over a three-week period. The first couple of seasons weren't too bad. They even gave me a possible idea for an original character that I might use someday.

Then I got the original Stephen King book, and I think I'll get the movie with Christopher Walken since I haven't seen that. It is interesting comparing the different ways the drama is handled.

Heh. Even when I'm brooding I seem to bring everything back to writing somehow.

Writing does take over your life.

I hope the lengthening days give the SAD the boot.

I don't decorate much, there doesn't seem much point when there's only me. I did get bullied into it this year though.

I have two weeks off, so hopefully I won't piss it all away on the Playstation and I'll get the chapter done.

I've got the next week off. I think that is helping even more than the longer days!

I'm hoping we'll get to the coast but we may cancel because the dog has an ear infection. Veterinarian care there is spotty.

If I don't respond for a few days it will be for lack of internet connection. We'll be taking any room we can get if we go.

I thought the solstice was tomorrow! *gets confused*

These are really gorgeous - I love Fate Decides (Tara looks so pretty!) and the last one for the colours.

Congratulations on your awards, by the way!

Thanks. You're right. My head is a bit of a tangled mess at the moment, I know perfectly well when the solstice is, but it all got mixed up...


You're forgiven. :(

Is it new job issues, or general Christmas, or...? (I mean, it's not like I keep anybody updated on my own mental state, but I still worry about all of you lot!)

:)

I think it's all of it; work, christmas and christmas bloody cards, Parcel Force, the WIP, the Advent calendar, no time to myself, the bloody tumble dryer with thinks it's funny to make my clothes wetter, money...

New job is keeping me from writing, that's for sure.

Tumble dryers are bastards. As are Parcel Force - it always pisses me off when they leave those stupid notes instead of just leaving the parcel in a sensible place or giving it somebody else. Generally, if you're not in between their stupid hours you're not available to pop over to their depot.

You could always become really militant in your pagan atheism and refuse to send out Christmas cards. Spend the money on booze instead...

I wouldn't mind if Parcel Force had actually left me a card in the first place. They're redelivering, supposedly to a new address, but as they seem to be unable to allow me to speak to an actaully person and prefer to cut me off instead, I have no idea where they think they are delivering to, but it better not be here because I won't be in!

You sometimes wonder whether these people actually want to deliver stuff, or if they're just in it to hawk things on eBay.

Ha! If you see any cordless drills...

Beautiful. I love Tara icons ! Snagging the first one ( obviously ) .:)
So the solstice is today ? It's more often on the 21 December , or even 22December but I know that it may change depending on the year.
And that means a little more sun soon!

Congrats on the award.

There can never be enough Tara icons.

Yeah, yeah! I got the date wrong! I admit it!

very pretty, gentle soul

Beautiful. I particularly like the first one.

you'll have to wait for the rants against Parcel Force

You should hear my rants about Royal Mail's Recorded (non)Delivery!


Recorded delivery doesn't seem to be a problem around here, I have a good postman (must write card...) luckily.




Happy Yule!

And I loved these icons, particularly the last one.

Thanks. I started by writing Tara, she is a favourite of mine.

'Fate Decides' is beautiful among beautiful icons.

It goes to show what judge I am of my own work, I didn't think that ones was really good enough, but I chucked it in anyway!
