Working on an important scene for Kala in the future, a transitional moment for her, and it's slowly but surely dragging me up out of the funk I've found myself in for the last week or two. Forcing yourself to consider a character's life and choices has actually always been pretty good for making me think about my own. There's been a need for change lately in my life, a need for something new and yet stable, because God knows summer wasn't for me at all. Summer has NEVER been a good season for me and every year it reaffirms that fact.

So, red in my hair along with the black, action arc coming up in one epic even as we're writing two eras in the other to get us plotted and planned and right even before we get to the end and the next one on the horizon. I'm wrapping myself in the tastes and smells of Fall to remind me why I love the season even as the job's insanity grows worse. There are certain other projects that need some love, but they can wait a little bit longer until the cards are right. There's still a couple of months left, if I keep my eye on it.

The goal of the season? Reshuffle the deck and get everything ready before Christmas. I want to be prepped, planned, and good to go on the final chapters of ATU, catch up all of the back-story we need to move into the heart of Love and Other Headaches, finally get close to publishing Into the Shadows, finish the final story in the Illuminated universe, and have the major plot completely outlined for Blood Will Tell before my birthday. I have until December 11th.

Let's see if I can manage it. Fingers crossed.

This could be said for several relationships I have, both platonic and not and it just keeps sticking with me.

Well, it seems to me that the best relationships, the ones that last, are frequently the ones that are rooted in friendship. You know, one day you look at the person and you see something more than you did the night before. Like a switch has been flicked somewhere. And the person who was just a friend is… suddenly the only person you can ever imagine yourself with.

So many feelings. So many, many feelings on this today.

kalalanekent: (LS-Verse :: Lois on the Rooftop)
My morning and afternoon has been spent reading serious future sexiness from one of the upcoming epics, rocking out to one of my favorite Pandora stations, drinking Dew, and going through every website I have on hold about Urban Exploration.

This evening will consist of writing on the next chapter of ATU, the last part of the Tales of the Multiverse fic, and more of this future sexiness, as well as enjoying a hard cider.

All of this without angsting over the lack of hours at my job [I'm off without pay for four days this week because they had to cut hours]. I refuse to do it any more.

And I stopped doing it after last week's nervous breakdown, when I finally decided that I needed to start taking something for the anxiety. You know what? I don't even feel like a freak for doing it, like I was afraid of.

I'm on meds for it now; so what? I haven't been trying not to cry at work any longer, I'm not freaking out that my story-lines suck and that's why I'm not getting that many reviews at the moment, and the level of calm in my life in the middle of this storm of money issues is the most refreshing thing in years. I wish now that I had done it earlier and saved everyone the trouble of dealing with me. Not a bit of remorse on this one.

I'm going to make a major effort to just chill the hell out and channel my inner Lois and roll out. it's about frikkin' time. :D

How does a Friday night not be a total crash-and-burn situation?

When you work high-end retail, dress a bit edgy and quirky, and can rock out to California Girls while singing out loud when you think the last of the customers have left for the evening and sound decent.

Using the lyrics to Geek and Gamer Girls.

Cred point.

And get overheard by the group of teenagers leaving with their ride [the last ones in the building, shopping with Mom] and get a sincere round of whistles and high-fives for actually knowing the song PERIOD.

Double cred.

Even better?

Having the mom that was with them compliment my baby-blue nail polish and ask where I got it when she figured out where they were.

And having her tell the manager on duty on the way out that they need a few more nice young ladies like me on staff afterwards.

Some days it's WORTH going to work.

*grumps* Well, it's Tuesday and I'm still waiting to be able to dump Clearwire, but it's going to have to wait until this weekend. My connection isn't going to be the greatest and it'll likely be the end of the week before everything gets up, but I'm sick of trying to stay offline. I may not be able to be back up to speed, but I'm going to be posting and the chapter is moving along swimmingly. Expect a spoiler very shortly and vacation pics within the next day or so. I've missed you guys SO much! *snuggles you all*

(yep, that's a sun-bathing Kala. I LOVE this pic!)

MUCH better outlook today. The weather is cool, I have no FIL around to depress me, I can make my own stuff, I got enough sleep, I woke up in the silence of the morning at my MIL's house, I'm nearly finished polishing a chapter I've been waiting forever to write, I have a day out with my family today, and even though I have all of my money sunk into my trip in three weeks and am totally broke, I'm happy.

How weird. I have a ton of stuff I'd love to be buying right now, but you know what? I'll be in the mountains in three weeks. Who needs candy corn-scented body wash when I'll be running around in cold weather shortly? Really?

:D

And [livejournal.com profile] chickadilly , I'm sorry I didn't do much of a write-up on the meet-up. It's not that I didn't want you, because you are the most awesome person I have ever met. Trufax. That four hours meant a lot to me and the fact that you were so wonderful to listen to us go on and on and on was one of those things that kept me going last week when things got hard. You are infinitely precious to me, you know that? *snugs you tight* Why on Earth did you have to go home just when I really wanted you to stay? *pouts* I LOVE YOU, LEA! I MISS YOU!
