But it looks as though it's going to be necessary. I'm into my second week of the pneumonia, starting to improve by degrees, but now we've run into the problem that happens to all couples. Anissa has it now. *sigh* There have only been less than 1,000 words written since the beginning of last week. So I'm going to go ahead and call it now, as much as it kills me to do it. We're going to have to take another week while Anissa gets better because the current chapter has a huge action sequence in it that's going to need both of us fully on-board to manage.

Sorry, guys. I'm going to say look for the next post from us on September 1. Until then, we'll be trying to get well and plot to have things up and rolling by then.
kalalanekent: (Lois :: Caught)
Go to Anissa's post and read all about it.  Not included: Lois' work-related fuckery.  It's the biggest retail holiday of the year coming up!  Guess which fucktard manager is trying to cut hours and not hire any new seasonal employees!  Guess which crew is ready to kill him, each other, and the customers!  (Why yes, this WAS posted by Anissa.  Two f-bombs in three sentences was your hint.)

*This is Lois dropping in about eight hours after the fact. Yeah, it's been pretty bad over here the last few weeks. I hate that we're blowing deadlines left and right, but the stress has been just too damn much lately. Between the both of us being sick and Anissa's dad being worse and worse off and things at my job being worse than insane, nothing has really gotten done on the current stories. It's just been enough to beat the hell out of some of our muses.

This isn't to say that we don't plan to be back to the grind shortly, but it may take a little longer. There's no plan to drop everything, and I have gotten a couple of questions about that from some fandom quarters, but it may be a little closer to Christmas before everything is back in complete order. I hate it, but it honestly can't be helped at the moment.

Yes, it's that bad over here right now. I hadn't planned to share, but being this disorganized isn't like me and I didn't want to keep my readers and friends and family hanging. So nope, I'm not going anywhere. The writing will be back, but maybe a little slower than I'd like. And yeah, rough times. We'll survive this. We always do. *winks at [livejournal.com profile] saavikam77

Annnnd I'm about to do something completely unprecedented. Something I REALLY didn't want to do.

For the last week, I've been fighting what feels like a strain of the flu and it's pretty much kept me out of work and offline. Miserable from head to toe and just barely feeling like I'm existing. Well, I'm just now back at work and trying to get back to a normal routine, nevermind that I've been going to bed early and sleeping really late. If I'm lucky, I'll be back to 100% by the weekend.

However, Anissa started falling prey to it this evening. And it's hitting her hard, where most colds and viruses don't really stick to her.

The bad part? We've only gotten a little bit of ATU underway because she's been having to look after me this week and I've been no help whatsoever. We know where it's going and what needs to be done for it, but there's no way that we're going to catch up in time. NONE. So, we're forced to hold off for a second week in a row.

No one worry. This isn't any kind of sign that we're stopping anything for good, just that we've both been in a really bad way and need the chance to rest and recoop before we dive back in. I don't expect that we'll miss another deadline and we plan to try to have the first chapter of Love and Other Headaches to you,then, as well, but it will most certainly be out by the end of the month.

As always, we love you all and thanks for understanding! We'll be back just as soon as we can!

But it would be much cooler if I was. Florida is not a place you want to find yourself in right now. The weather is miserable, work is... *bites tongue* work, and I caught yet another version of the plague that's been winding its way through my job. Fun times.

Energy was been low all around of late and what little I have is being channeled into Across the Universe and a good chunk of one of our future projects, so we can have it all nice and shiny before we write the bulk of it. I've also been making videos, but not ones that the general public can see yet. More stuff that you'll see in the coming months. Yep, I'm stockpiling. :D

I also need to take a moment to thank [livejournal.com profile] saavikam77  for putting up with me and my weirdo hours and requests and all the time I'm eating up on her schedule working on this side-project. You're a saint to put up with me and to have agreed to work on this stuff in the first place. I wouldn't know half the stuff I needed to know and wouldn't have the appreciation for that entire family without you. I don't tell you enough, but I owe you so much for this experience. I know it's been tough and I'm a pain in the ass a lot, but I couldn't have asked for more. 

Please remember that when you want to beat me, huh? *hopeful grin*

Consider yourself served with papers. I have a right to be treated better and I know there's another pair out there that would acknowledge my sacrifices and not demoralize me at every turn. Things could have been so good with us if you hadn't continually plotted against me. Expect to see Probiotics and Allegra soon for my last words on the topic. Don't try to see me. Your actions have been goodbye enough.

Now if I could just transplant you both.

No Love,

Me

First things first: XD over my virtual gift. I don't know if that was what was being hinted at, and I see a little hint to Contact in there, but I had a good laugh after a truly AWFUL day. My thanks to the gifter and Jodie Foster. :D

Secondly, sorry for falling off the face of the earth this week. I'm fighting something. Not quite sure what, but I just can't seem to get enough sleep lately. I actually slept eighteen hours on Tuesday and STILL feel exhausted even now, with a lot of sleep under my belt this week. Dunno what's up. But I don't like it. I miss being up on current events with everyone! *makes annoyed, pouty face* And I also owe a good review of both The Borgias and Game of Thrones

OH! Also, for those that care to take a glance, The Artist Formerly Know As Rizny and I have been running a Tumblr account at Fuck Yeah, Margot! A lot of the stuff that should be being posted at Reeveverse is being posted there. As soon as summer gets here, I'm going to see about getting that rolling again as well as working on the production of a permanent and more comprehensive site for my Superman universes. Which means a home of all of the graphics and such. 

Sessions continues on-time, so there's that. I'll have a spoiler up later tonight.

Hopefully I'll feel more spry in the morning.

I hope.

One week before the trip, less than a week even, and we're both sick.

Someone up there has a sick sense of humor.  *sigh*

  • What the hell is up with Sudden Attack Muscular Issues and Sudden Attack Sinus Issues? It doesn't feel like a cold or virus, but I'm just miserable. It's just weird. Been fighting this for two days now. Not a clue what it is.
  • Why is it that I'm finding myself interested in products I can only get in England or Europe? I just keep finding myself drooling over products from Original Source and there's no distributors for it here in the US. Not to mention the smaller department stores brands of cosmetics. Seriously, what's wrong with me? *headdesk*
  • Dr. Elliot Marrin is a picky (but brilliant) little muse who talks to us when he feels like it. He's going to cooperate thus far, but I get this feeling that my Lois muse is going to start threatening him shortly. Good thing I have his ex on-tap, huh? The first chapter of Sessions: From the Notes of Dr. Elliot Marrin goes live this Saturday.
  • Cut For Those Who Remain Unspoiled On Man of Steel ) Now, to just implant the Rashida bug in his brain.
  • Full-steam ahead on Across the Universe. It'll be out on-time next Saturday.
  • I desperately want to crawl back into bed and die, but I have to head to work. I just have to make it today and tomorrow.

Other than working on the fic for the PB and hearing that a certain someone loved their extremely-belated birthday present, I would like to return your attempt at scheduling events. After all the drama thus far, adding pressing stomach issues that have me spending quality-time in a cold room with porcelain isn't going to thrill me. Thank God I got the good boss today. And I feel bad doing it to him, but what can you do when you can't stay in one place for longer than ten minutes? 

No Love,

Me

Ended up calling out yesterday, as my stomach had had just about enough of the drainage. Expecting BS on coming in the door today, but I really don't care because I really needed the rest and I spent the night before with stomach cramps so bad it was after dawn, way after dawn, before I fell asleep. No guilt on this one at all. That said, the symtoms are going away. I'm just dealing with the drainage now, with no other issues. I'm going to buy nasal spray tonight to try to push the last of it out. And none too soon, either. I miss doing anything but laying around in bed. And I miss you guys like mad. :[

God bless you, [livejournal.com profile] cleolinda , for it is the best-fitting term for this mess.

I believe in the healing power of Cinema. After viewing Black Swan last weekend, I started to see a ray of hope. Here's hoping that seeing HP7, with its little nuggets of Harmony goodness, can further counter-act the effects of said Death Blarg. Because I miss you guys and being able to do anything ficcish. I'm going to double-up on vitamins after this, I swear. Two months of great health and then this monster. I just can't win. *headdesk*
