fanfic news

Writing news -- okay, fanfic writing news, but still:

I was awarded Runner Up for best GenFic in the Rogue-poet awards (http://awards.rogue-poet.com/winners7a.html), for my story "Profit and Loss"!

Later the same day, I was notified that my "Four Friends" stories have been nominated in the "Joined at the Hip Award (Best Gen)" category at the Forbidden Awards! (http://community.livejournal.com/forbiddenawards/57434.html#cutid1) *does Snoopy Dance, badly* There are still lots of great fanfic writers hard at work out there -- go over to the sites and check them out!

Emily and I are still kicking back and enjoying her vacation. My first priority after she goes back to school will be to get my office fixed up and reorganized -- quite a chore, considering how much I've let it go the last few years -- and then I'll be back in the original fiction business. I am going to finish up a couple of Buffy fanfics that I've been working on as time allows, though.

Meanwhile, I have a very odd idea for a crossover fanfiction that I might be able to convert into an original fiction. A very odd idea. I'm going to mull it over a bit, and if I decide it's workable I'll likely work on either that story, or my zombie novel idea, for NaNoWriMo this year. It's a complicated enough idea that it'll take me that long to prepare!

Talent and diligence pays off, huh? Congratulations! I feel lazy in comparison. I'm proud to know you Mark!

Ha -- you live your own kind of life, but the last thing you are is lazy! Thanks, and I'll try to continue to be diligent!

Well, congratulations there. I’ve read most of your “Four Friends” entries — possibly all of them by now — and they always provide a little lift. And, since the last round at Rogue Poets also recognized me in the General Fic category, that makes us fellow vets.

Update: I just looked at the graphics page to see your award. Cool! Dude, post it here and/or at the location of the fic itself. (Not that hard to set up a Photobucket account.)

Congrats to you, too!

I hadn't even though to go to the graphics page -- d'oh! I'll get on that as soon as I get a chance. I've already got a photobucket; you'll never guess what my screen name is.

Awesome news for an awesome dude!

Good luck with the Odd Idea. Those are always the best.

Re: Congratulations!
Aren't they, though? More difficult to pull off, though. Thanks!
