ceitfianna: (breaking each other)
Today started out hopeful, I turned in a cover letter and the new job continues to be great and oddly good for my inspiration. I started a Cassian fic that the Hamilton soundtrack made me go oh, so many amazing lyrics. As I was driving home listening to Hamilton, suddenly I was over the curb with two flat tires. Someone was looking out for me as there was an auto place on the corner, I was on a side street behind the Watertown mall and I was fixed and going in about half an hour.

Now I’m home and realizing that I have bruises but feeling lucky. Also I have a lot of long periods during my current sub job and access to a computer. Please send prompts as the Star Wars’ release day is Thursday and I’d love to post some fic then. Rogue One is the fandom I’m writing for the most with a focus on Cassian and Jyn but I know Clone Wars, OT and some of the books so try me and keep my mind busy.
ceitfianna: (stormy ship)
I just posted this on my Tumblr and I'm putting it here too. Though for here, instead of asks, suggestions for posts or anything you're curious would be great along with prompts.

I need help keeping my mind busy as my sister’s in the midst of a major surgery. Please send asks or prompts from any memes floating around or any ideas you have. At the moment, the easiest canon for me to write is Rogue One but try me with any others that I’ve mentioned. Thank you.

ETA: My sister is out of surgery and resting, it all seems to have gone well.

Grey days

Its raining today. I have some plans to try and do some writing but I thought I'd be a part of that December writing meme. Though I'm adding my own small twist, you can request a topic or a fic with a prompt, fics might not appear exactly on the day but I'll try. I love writing for others and miss doing it.

Dates in December )

I'm back to fact-checking as on Thursday, I was emailed with another book. I'm trying to do more writing and put a prompt request over on my tumblr and I'm doing one here.

There are a lot of ideas and unfinished fics bouncing around in my head and fact-checking is something I need mental breaks from.

Please send prompts, at the moment, the loudest fandom for me is X-Men movieverse but I'm up for trying something, just ask. Thank you.
ceitfianna: (Dean time rambles on)
The past two days have been rainy and grey, which made it hard to do all the things I wanted to. But I'm working on getting myself back into a schedule for fact-checking as well as more job stuff though today I was reminded how the librarian job market is a hirer's one. In the mail, I received a sorry, but no thanks letter from a library I applied to I think in February.

I was wondering how those of you who've done the sort of freelance editing that fact-checking falls under put it on your resume since each assignment takes about a month. Also I think I need to redo my cover letter, I hate cover letters since I never know what's going to click and I'm worried what I have now hasn't been working. Job searching suck but it helps to know that the fact-checking place trusted me enough to send me another book.

In fun news, I stumbled across a commentfest that looks like a lot of fun and will be of interest to many of you.

Sparrow Hill Road is being a fantastic read and today, I went to read it at the closet to a diner I can find around here since I've been craving pancakes. I really miss The Broken Egg in Ann Arbor and The Pancake House on Woodward Ave, there aren't enough proper breakfast places around here.

My fic writing brain has been returning and I saw this great meme on [personal profile] newredshoes's journal and wanted to post it. I want to try and post finished things this month.

FIRST — the first two sentences of my current project
LAST — the most recently written two sentences of my current project
NEXT — the next line. meaning i will finish the sentence I’m on and write a new one, which you’ll get.
PROMPT — you post a prompt, and i’ll write three sentences based on that prompt, set in the same time/setting as my current project
THE END — i’ll make up an ending, or post the ending if i’ve written it
BEFORE THE BEGINNING — three sentences (or more) about something that happened before the plot of my current project
POV — something that’s already happened, retold from another character’s perspective

I finished my fact-checking job! I found out that I really like fact-checking even though it kind of eats all my mental space. It reminds me of when I was working at the Seaport Museum and I got lost in logbooks to prepare them for archive precis, but this time I'm making sure the history given to kids is right. Also people pay me to go poke history and go, you know, that seems way too simple. What's really going on? I love it and they pay me. I don't know if I'll get another book since I'll be traveling to DC the rest of the week and then off to LA for a job interview the next week but this is a freelance job I could do.

Since I'm uploading and emailing it all away and tomorrow driving to DC for the job fair, I'm going to open myself up to prompts. I miss writing and road trips are the best for giving me time to think and hopefully words to come out. DC folks, I'll have my laptop and if you need my telephone number, DM or PM or whatever me, because want to see you guys. I recall a fantastic Mexican place that I went with college friends somewhere around Dupont Circle that I want to find again and its Winter Soldier time. Movie watching probably won't happen as that always requires major planning but coffee, dinner, whatever works for me. I'll be free after 4:30 on Friday and all day Saturday.

Now for a great prompt meme from [personal profile] walksbyherself. Below the cut are One Hundred Prompts. Pick one or two or however many, give me characters and get a drabble or more. Open to AUs, RPs, everything. I want to write again.

100 Prompts! )

And I really need to do a road trip or something up New England way as this fact-checking reminded me that I last was a tourist in Boston when I was in high school. It was a marching band trip and a lot of fun but a few decades away.

Since I work on Fridays and don't feel comfortable making prompt requests on Twitter until after 4 pm, I thought I'd take up [personal profile] ladyoflorien's idea.

Work is being fairly good other than some boys acting immature during lunch and the school is pretty quiet with a lot of kids off on a field trip.

Leave me a prompt and I will write you a comment length fic, it won't be 140 characters but I'm still aiming for brevity. I'm going to try and not go over two or three sentences but some might grow on me.

After work, I'll move my prompting to Twitter.

I don't think my holiday cards are going to happen this year. I'm really sorry about this but the combination of new job, moving, the difficult transition has meant that my year has felt pushed about and I haven't had the time. Most of my vacation has been talking, resting, which I really needed and the cards aren't happening.

Since I do love gifting everyone and doing something for all of you wonderful people. I'm opening myself up to write more gift fics as I'm still working on the other ones. A new prompt, something we've discussed that I haven't written, whatever you would like, I'm here to write for you.

Tomorrow I start the drive back to Michigan with many supplies, goodies and I think a new coffee table from my father before starting work on Monday. I think I'm ready to reenter and face new challenges and keep doing more.
ceitfianna: (Books don't forget to fly)
This weekend, I'm off to visit family in New Jersey but then I'll be back for the New Year. This means that my current threads will get a little slower but probably not too much.

I don't have to return to Michigan until the weekend of the 5th and would love to connect with anyone who's in the Maryland area. I have my car and am happy to drive places.

Today was nice as I got a chance to wander around a lovely bookstore in Rehoboth and pick up some books that I've been wanting; The Brides of Rollrock Island, Snuff and City of Dark Magic. Then I was able to sit in a favorite cafe and just read Code Name Verity for a while, that book is amazing.

Signal boosting the wonderful ficathon that [personal profile] walksbyherself has started up "Aren't You Glad You Left Livejournal" Anniversary Fic Exchange/Festival/Creatathon. Go leave prompts, answer prompts, let's keep writing stuff.
ceitfianna: (holiday kittens)
It turns out a school party that I thought was tonight is tomorrow night, so I can have a restful night. The day is rainy but not as cold as yesterday, I always appreciate not having to deice my car in the morning.

Now for two holiday things, I'll try and hit up everyone's love meme threads this weekend and if you don't do them, know that I think you're wonderful. I hope to get started on my cards soon as I feel a little overwhelmed at how behind I am on my shopping.

If you'd like a holiday fic, leave me a prompt here.

I have a second interview on Friday and made it home in one piece. I hate the roads around Detroit so much, they always leave me feeling like I'm going to miss my turn or get side swiped by someone. The only roads that can compare to worry and terror are the ones around Baltimore for me, but I made it to the interview and back safely.

My lunch at a local deli was rather disappointing, so I'm planning on going out later to Whole Foods to pick up either some wine or beer and something delicious for dinner. I also had a bad moment of my lunch considering coming back up on me but it didn't. My parents will be arriving sometime tomorrow night to help me move and as they said celebrate all that I've accomplished in Michigan.

At the moment I feel rather like a harp that someone's run their hand across and all the strings are vibrating. Most of the vibration is good but some of its leftover from Detroit driving, which is a touch nervous.

I think since I have energy and am in the mood to write, let's end this with a prompt meme.

Give me character(s) from a fandom I know, setting or a lyric or anything else and I'll write you at least a hundred words.

ETA: And now the energy's gone from good to uncomfortable and I can feel myself being a little snappish. I think there's just been a little too much today and I need to give myself more time to process and a trip out will help.

Second ETA: I have driven where I know and want to go with loud music, bought delicious wine and food and feel better. It's just been a full day.

The new job angle has turned around so fast on me, it's amazing. They're already referring me to jobs and all I have to do is write cover letters and keep getting them documentation. I actually feel like I'm going to get a job at some point in the near future. Someone's not only on my side but thinking, let's see how we can help you and get you placed. I just want to bottle this feeling and bring it out on bad days.

Otherwise life is being fairly good, the weather's gone back to being cold again and I feel like I might be fighting off a cold of some sort but nothing too horrible. As long as I rest and eat properly I'll be fine and don't worry too much about the end of the month bills. I have a plan to take care of them with a touch of stretching until my next paycheck.

I'm hoping to be visiting the East Coast at the end of April, beginning of May for a niece's birthday party and to get away from Ann Arbor for a bit. Hopefully some visits can actually happen this time. Sadly my winter break was minute and there wasn't time but my parents aren't that far away and with my car, things are possible.

My writing bug is starting to come back. Today's DE about What Ifs finally prompted me to share an AU idea that's been sitting in my head for a while and that I might make into a story. On Twitter I also shared another little fic idea. I think I'll add a sort of prompt to this.

If there's a fic idea, we've talked about that I mentioned writing at some point. Leave it here and I'll try and write you at least a hundred words or any ideas. Be warned if the idea has been simmering in my head, it might be larger. Make me write for you!
ceitfianna: (paper butterfly)
As I'm finally filling prompts on my last writing meme and things are starting to slowly happen, it's time for another one.

I'm feeling hopeful about this coming week and month, also Spring keeps surprising me here. One day it will be cold and crisp then suddenly I feel like I need to put away my sweaters. It's confusing but lovely as well.

This feels like a nice metaphor for my life at the moment, lots of quiet moments with bursts of progress.

Give me two characters and a prompt (or not) and I will write porn.
ceitfianna: (running towards a happy ending)
Monday is hitting me rather hard and I don't like it. Last night around work wasn't great. On my walk up, there was a guy who I passed that just made me nervous and then on the walk back, my ankle started hurting. I'm trying to ready myself to do more pushing myself in job things. I need to send out more apps, write a librarian blog post and tomorrow I'm talking with a staffing agency. Overall I just wish I felt more hopeful, but that's a hard thing to call into being. I'm also feeling sad as I realize how many paid accounts I need to get my pup icons, but I'll manage that, it's just another nagging, money thought.

So that means I need distraction and am going to ask for prompts or picture requests. I will get to the Valentine's Day ones, I promise. My writing has just been coming in odd fits and starts lately. Also you don't have to do both memes. I'm just putting them down as they're the ones that seem to get my creativity going the most.

Give me a prompt of a lyric, line of poetry, or picture plus characters and/or setting. As always RP characters are always welcome.

Tell me something to photograph.

More love

Happy Galentine's Day
my thread

Oh and there's a ladyfest prompt to accompany this over here.

I plan on spreading lots of love in the next couple of days.

And I'm also taking prompts to write stories for everyone here as more love is wonderful.
ceitfianna: (feathered face)
I've been thinking about what I want to do in terms of showing how grateful and happy I am to have all of you in my life as Valentine's Day approaches. My solution which probably surprises no one is that I want to write you stories.

Give me a pairing and I will write you at least a hundred words of them being together. Feel free to give me a lyric, an image, anything and a sense of would you like fluffy or sexy.

Also the pairing doesn't have to be romantic, any sort of pairing. I'm here to write for you as all of you inspire and support me.

I have also had some hopeful job news but I don't want to say too much for now.
ceitfianna: (James: We areYoung)
I have things that I should be doing and want to be doing but none of them are quite happening. I've noticed that if I'm waiting on something then it makes it trickier to plan.

Today I waited on landlord maintenance that didn't happen and so it threw my day off. Tomorrow there will be job moving and I really want to finish at least one fic this week, along with sending job stuff out into the world.

So in the name of distraction and in the hope that maybe some quick fics will help me finish the current one that feels so close to done I can taste it, have a meme.

Last seen on [personal profile] adiva_calandia's journal.

Comment with a couple of characters and a song and I will drabble for you.

If you're unsure of my fandoms, they're listed in my interests and RP certainly counts, also don't be afraid to ask as I just want to write.

More Ideas

I went to bed last night with the AU for William/Thalia Indiana Jones/boarding school/I don't know what spinning around in my head and then found this wonderful prompt meme from a friend. Sadly that AU has created too many ideas and none of them have been written yet, hopefully soon I'll feel happy enough to actually write them. My mind is odd. I've already started on a new XMFC story for it.

50 reasons to have sex fic fest


Life is busy as I try to figure out when I can leave to get back in time for work and if I can trade out my shifts for the end of the week so I can have the weekend to travel.

I hope so because this has been another terribly busy break that's been glorious but tiring. I would love to have a little more time to just be with my parents and spend some Christmas money. *fingers crossed*

Written as a gift for [personal profile] bodldops who requested William, Katya and a proper Russian Christmas. I'm sorry for the delay and I hope you like it.

At his look, Katya laughs and puts on the hat as he opens the door for her and as the cold Russian air surrounds them, she moves through, tugging him along. )
