That worked out okay after all.

I just looked at the state of my friends list and was slightly horrified. So many people! So many people whose names have turned into strikethroughs because they've moved on! So many people who've friended me whose names are unfamiliar!

This is what happens when you turn notifications off. Let this be a lesson to you.

So anyway. Hi! How are you doing? Are you here for the fic? The fic wittering? The rambling? The incisive analyses of economic trends?

In other news, I survived the inevitable mood crash that follows posting significant fic, at least for me. There's this period where all you can think about are the problems you left unfixed, the unwritten bits you'd wanted to put in, the lurking typos. You loathe the story, the impulse that drove you to write it, the text editor it rode in on, and the very pixels that render it on your screen. However, with this one the comments told me I'd managed to do what I wanted to do with it, despite all the flaws. The readers I'd wanted to make happy with it were happy. So it all turned out okay in the end.

My next project is to finish the original fiction thing I have going. As usual I'll have a fanficcy fidget story or two cooking along in the background when I need to flee from the main project. Fidget stories get finished unpredictably, however, because they have to become main projects at least for a short while to get polished & readable. I have no idea what the next thing will be. I have BG, GX, BGX, and GEB stories in progress.

I'm trying out a new LJ client; aslj_client. More info here. If you're reading this it worked. Interesting aspects of the source on github.
