Asta 2

(no subject)

Geez, it's the lunch hour, I'm trying to eat my lunch while talking on the phone with my mom and someone on their cellphone decides not to notice that I'm on the phone talking and attempts to ask a work related question. This is only one small incident amongst many that I've had to put up with in the past several weeks.

The only good thing that's happened recently is my department recieved new 19" flat screen monitors yesterday. It was a necessity after a system upgrade and the fact that the old monitors were too small to allow us to properly view the programs. The downside of this is that when I'm writing in Word or surfing the net, you'd have to be blind not to see what I'm doing. Yet, I still do it. ;)

I wrote 500 words of a Hornblower fic this morning. I decide to start what I've been mulling over in my head for the past several weeks, get past my fear, and commit something, anything, to the screen. And, I have to say, I think it's a decent start. So much so I wanted to keep writing (I have it all pretty much mapped out in my head), but I had to stop myself. Stoopid job.

And I still need to complete the Lee/Laura epic. I say epic because I somehow managed to cross the 8,000 word mark. Eep! I'm actually quite satisfied with the fic and working with k_julia's comments is going pretty smoothly. With previous fics there always seemed to be a point where I'd get frustrated because I wasn't seeing something or felt I was struggling with my own limitations, but I think I'm starting to get the hang of this. I also remind myself there is a lot of bad fic out there. ;) Now if I only could find time to finish the darn thing.
