Finally finished my story for this week's Challenge. Suffice it to say that it took longer to subtract words than to write them. The word count is definitely the hardest part for me. And the suckiest thing about it is: I never seem to write the full-length story once I finish the one for competition. I *will* finish The First Journal someday, that I'm absolutely sure about.

This one: It's good enough the way it is. 'Good enough' will have to do. And that's all I'm gonna say about it.

Still gotta go wash my hair . . . there's so much else to do, I can't even count it all. But the story's done at least.

Good for you and I hope the rest of your research went well. Maybe it will be well received.

Sounds like you had fun on the Island on Sunday.

I LOVE your latest LAS fic! It's wonderful. Of course, I think they've ALL been wonderful, frankly...

I love that subject line: Last Author Sitting


Okay, yeah. There's always a TON to do. And we don't always get done what we'd like to. But we're doing the best we can. And still managing to goof off, play games, watch TV and movies and have loads of FUN. So what more can we really ask for?

That cutting words to a word count is NOT a simple task is it :)

I have that issue ALL THE TIME in grants, news pieces etc. And go through the minus 15, hmm wait I still have 3, damn over 6 .. hmm

God, there's nothing like cramming your stuff into those fields they give you for grant info . . .

Dear Mistress Marilyn,

I adore your fics. I used to be a regular visitor to Camelotslash, every know and then in order to check on updates. My favorite piece was The Vessel. Oh...how I adored it! It was such an unique and special plot. Many slash fiction stories contain the same plot, the same theme. Boy falls in love with boy, etc. But in this story, the notion of owing a debt and paying it in such manner. It was just so original. And the steamy scenes. Sigh...lovely. Well, I continued checking and checking but, it seems that this web site has been abandoned. There has not been any updates since 2006. I would like to know then, is this the end of The Vessel? Have you continued the fic somewhere else? Have you been writing other fics?
Regardless, I truly love The Vessel. Maybe, you will no longer continue it, which saddens my heart but I shall understand.

Thank you. I did not know how to write to you, unaware whether the camelotslash email is even working. So, I decided to write here. If you like, please email me at hikoro_sukiyama@yahoo.com

Thank you!
