Happy Easter, everyone. Welcome to April. How have you all been? Has anyone got anything interesting written? I've had one of my usual months of not getting much done for me, due to the amount of work I have on right now, but hopefully that will be changing at some point in the next month. That really does depend on work though.
I should hopefully be getting the community cards up tomorrow, so be on the look out for them if you interested. :)
Sorry I'm a couple of days late - life happened. :) At the end of last month (the 26th) my boyfriend and I celebrated being together for 12 years, but as we haven't been together for a while, and he's back off tonight, we've been making the most of the time we had together. Including going for a snow walk. England had snow. So exciting. Well, for us it was. We like snow a lot, but it's gone now, and we've just realised how happy snow makes both of us. Now we just need to find somewhere with snow we might want to live.
February was also one of the best months I've had for writing so far, which is really good. I'm very happy about that. So far no luck with the bingo card, but it does help if I look at it occasionally. :D I've also been playing a lot of Stardew Valley while my boyfriend has been away. Anyone else play? My new plan is to set up twelve farms, marry everyone, and then be happy. I've also got a number of mods set up, to make certain characters look different (Shane is now wearing something not Joja and trousers, Alex's sprite matches Alex, and Harvey has no mustache).
Like every month so far please post any fills that won't make a bingo, and let me know if you want a new card. If you're new you have seven days to comment here for a card - we look forward to seeing what you write. Community cards will be going up tomorrow.
Hey, everyone. How are you doing? I was going to post this up yesterday, but... well, I forgot by the end of the day. Sorry for that. I am here now though, and hoping you're all getting on well.
Work, for me, has been busy, which is good and bad. Normally I have no brain left by the end of the day, but recently I've been a little better with that, so I've actually been writing - for me. It's exciting. Hopefully I'll be able to keep up with it, and might even get around to actually looking at the bingo card I made for myself... whenever it was I made it. Or not. :D
Sorry this has taken so long. It was my boyfriend's 30th at the weekend, so lots was happening. Now I'm finally back to normal life once more, and that means I can finally get the community cards up, which I promise won't take so long next time. :)
I'm not going to try the cut this time, because I'm pretty sure it's not going to work, so let me know how you prefer this.
Hello, everyone. As mentioned before here's the mid month check in and update post. How are you doing? Has January been a good month for you so far?
Although this month hasn't been great (auspicious beginning to 2018) I have managed to get some world building work done, which is the first thing done for me in several months. I've also been going through some older stories, working out what needs changing, and also planning some new stories. This, for me, is a really good step. Of course now I actually need to follow through with the actual writing, but I'm hoping to have the time to do that from tomorrow onwards. Something I've always found complicated is working around my long term boyfriend, especially as we live together, and I've been really bad at taking time to do the things I want to be doing - like writing. He's got some stuff that needs doing away from our home for a little while, so I'm going to try to create a nice schedule for myself. I've always worked better than way. All I can do after that is hope that I can stick to it when he's home again.
One of the things I daydream about is having my own office. A space of my own, to have my books, and work stuff, and laptop... only that's not going to happen any time soon. I did have an office for a while, but it was a 40 minute walk away, so I found myself not using it, which made it a waste of the money I was spending on rent. For now I have my corner. It's better than nothing.
Feel free to talk about your month so far in the comments. I'd love to get to know you all better. :)
The first community cards will be in the comments. I don't know why, but I can't put the cards behind a cut, so I see this as the best way of doing this for now. When I have a bit more time I'll experiment to see if I can make this work the way I want it to.
