ceitfianna: (lost in a library)
This week I wrote up a new cover letter for a job opportunity that feels like it came out of nowhere. I won't know anything more until August but I feel good about it and my paycheck for my last fact-checking came in.

AU!Week in Milliways was interesting and makes me think I should go and revisit the Pacific Rim AU I was working on for Sameth and maybe write up more of if William went down a darker path. Its something that's come up in other stories for him but I haven't pushed it to the point I did in Bar. Its something I might play with more in the sandboxes.

In happy news for the first time, I participated in the Lost Library Exchange where the focus is on writing fictional works that are mentioned in other works. Its a great idea and there were some amazing stories. I wrote one which is a chapter from one of the Millie books from the Chronicles of Chrestomanci.

“She’s always showing off but she can’t do that much on the piano, she’s not that good. Now come on, I need to finish this essay or else I won’t be allowed to ride in the race next month,” Jane said with a sigh, Millie knew it was only to distract her but she didn’t mind. She knew she was lucky to have Jane as her roommate, because she understood about Delphinia and never thought she was making anything up, even though Jane didn’t care one whit about music or who was best except in riding.



For a gift, I received a brilliant fic from the world of Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell, and I've finally seen the first episode of the miniseries, it looks good. I look forward to when I can watch all of it along with rereading as its one of my favorite books.
