Hmmm...mud mask. I went girly and gave myself a lavender mud mask this morning. Now I'm sleepy. But I smell pretty. Not that I am going to do anything today but be fannish and write, but hey, I smell pretty! Lavender is one of the few flowery smells that doesn't send me into a fit of sniffles and sneezes.

Fannish Things To Do

*I am going to organize and cut more icons, I think. I noticed a recent lack of Daniel in my icons and that is very bad. Need Daniel back. But I want to even it out so I have plenty of Daniel, Jack, Sam and Teal'c. I also am in need of Cam. And some pairing icons that I can smile over whether I feel fandom shippy or my regular old gen friendshippy self. Then, I'll look at my other non-SG1 icons and organize those too. I really need to make an icon that captures just me.

*Maybe write. Don't know what. Maybe a little short fic. Maybe work on one of my longer fics. Don't know!!! *indecisive*

*Watch an episode of SG-1. Next is...Memento. Hmm. It better be good.

*Watch an episode of something else. Let's see...Mac, Farscape, or Smallville. Haven't decided yet.

Original Writing

Not that I think many people care on this point, which is fine, and this is more for my sake than anything else. While I have gotten absolutely nowhere with my short story I've been angsting over, I've made leaps and bounds with my novel. I'm jotting down backstory notes like crazy. Since I'm planning this as a trilogy -- ideally, anyway -- I want all the backstory straight so that the books flow well. No retcon or sloppiness. Again, ideally anyway. So I am very very pleased that it's clicking like you wouldn't believe. Also, the character profiles and backgrounds are just fitting so perfectly. Everyone has their big faults now and it works in the context of the greater story. Maybe I am so hung up on the short story because my subconscious is so focused on novel right now. And I'm much better at writing long stories than short ones. I'm so excited! This is always my fave part of the creative process.

Music always helps me write. I don't do the whole song!fic thing, but the power in music helps me set the mood. So, for my novels, they are set to music by Keane and Muse. *happy sigh*

So, my day will be a good one. I'll probably be on and off all day, so if anyone's bored give me a shout out and I'll pop on to chat.

I liked Memento. Actually, I think it was one of my favorite season 6 episodes.
Sounds like a good day to me. Good luck!

I always find it ironic that I can never remember the title of "Memento".

Ever since we couldn't remember together, I've made it a point of memorizing it. Because, really, it was driving me batty.

No matter how many icons I have, I always seem to be lacking the one perfect one for a post. Funny that.

It never fails! I swear you could have 500 icons and still not have just the right one.

Yay Farscape and MacGuyver! I'm slowing working my way through season 3 of FS and season 1 of Mac. Pretty caught up in other things right now, though. Have fun being fannish!

Oooh. I just finished S3 of Farscape. (Good stuff.) and I'm about 1/3 of the way through S1 of MacGyver :)

Goody. :D Though I do believe that the first half of Mac S1 does have some of the worst acting ever in an actually good TV show. It gets much better.
