Losing myself in fanfic . . .

Thank God for fanfic. After the week I've had, I need the escape and enforced alternate reality.

And somehow my procratinating has gotten me to the due date of my pre96 story, and I hadn't even started it until the middle of last night. I was only vaguely convinced of what fandom I was choosing and what the actual story would be. So last night I started tooling around, looking for stuff about the western 'Lancer,' a CBS series more than 30 years ago.

And I started the story, slowly and painfully.

Today I've decided to really go for it. It's going to be slash and incest. Woohoo! (Much different than the stuff being written in this fandom, believe me.)

I also wrote my drabble for ka100. After waiting until the middle of the night Thurs/Friday to do last week's, I wrote this one 24 hours later. And it was easy. (Here's the link for my wonderful friends who take the time to read these: Rest)

I can't write about everything else today. I have to come to terms with everything at work, with the hard days to come and what it will be like to lose more friends and supporters and why I've decided to take a 10% pay cut. But not today.

First things first: Shower and drive to Jenny's deli in Woodburn (!) to get my Powerball ticket.

Too bad to hear you've had a rough week. I hope things get better for you!

Yeah, fanfic is like GOLD during times like this. Helps to write or read -- or even do research. (And being me, I love graphics involving fanfic, too. LOL.)

Being able to get LOST in fanfic is one of the great parts of being in fandom, I think...

By the way, I love your drabble "Rest." Very powerful. You do such a great job with 100 words! Impressive.

I don't think I know "Lancer." Would it be a fandom Jimbo and I would like? (We love Westerns! Big "Bonanza" fans here! LOL.)

Don't forget to share later about work and all. I'm really interested!

Love,

Bri

Slash and incest. Sounds wild. I want to read it, lol.

And I wondered how you were doing.
