  1. You’re a hell of a lot more disciplined in your writing process than I am and I’ve got to really admire that. On a morning like today I hope the ants are non-existent and the ideas are a-flowing. On a side note: I totally can’t wait for the end of the month to read your WMC VS episode. I’ve been sitting on my hands for three weeks trying not to do something silly like chew my fingernails into non-existence.

  2. hey, thanks for the update, it really is much nicer knowing how human you are (oh my, that propably didn’t come out right but i meant it as a complement) when checking your blog for fic updates. Also I’m super stressed over my exams, only 6 days!!!! and I’m so unproductive it’s nice to know not everyone is a working machine all the time, i’m sure i’ll end up working at a petrol station instead off completing the biological science course i aspire to.

    Anyway, sorry for ranting folks . Riley, I hope the ants are banished soon and today’s a good day. 🙂

  3. wow, i’m gonna be honest. i’m a little let down.

    there was nothing about ninjas in your update. after the plant, i’m starting to doubt if you really are one at all.

    on a more encouraging note: i’m excited about this novel business. i really enjoyed the last one. any way we can get a small plot teaser?

  4. I can relate. Oh how I can relate.

    A few years ago, I had a dream job. It was a level 1 help desk with a limited, exclusive customer base. Left me with a lot of time to write Sam/Janet stories (with the occasional comic-based femslash & some original stories mixed in).

    Naturally, a good deal like that couldn’t last. While unemployed, I spent most of my time doing the on-line & Sunday Trib job search while watching the Cubs lose out of the corner of my eye.

    Did get a long-term contract job & squeeked out a few more stories before I was back pounding the pavement looking for a job.

    Now I have a job I kind of enjoy (even if the stress levels can, on occasion, have me on the verge of popping a vessel) with a commute I love (20-30 minutes one-way on the El). But, being level 2 in a big gubmint operation doesn’t leave much time for more than thinking good story ideas.

    And by the time I get home, I glance at the computer in the corner before becoming a complete veg on the couch, being spoonfed cable TV pablum

    Glad to hear you’re still writing. I’m already looking forward to your upcoming novel!

  5. Well I wish you job/muse/inspiration/whatever you need to be happy.

    My Muse (the harlot) abandoned me around July, and has only dropped in for a daily visit once or twice since then.

  6. First rule of being a ninja… you only mention it once in passing on your ‘about’ page and can never speak of it again.

    I try to be disciplined in my writing process, but it doesn’t always work out.

    John, while it is somewhat distressing to me that you are not doing any writing, at least you kinda like your job. I think that’s more than a lot of people can say. I have yet to have one I like 😉

    small plot teaser? hmmm… i’ll have to think about that. i don’t know how much i want to divulge at the moment. I am actually hoping to have a few of you faithful peoples read my novel in advance of me sending it out to publishers. Are you volunteering Tara?
