Brief summary of vaguely structured thoughts

The GoodCollapse )

The BadCollapse )

The UglyCollapse )

So, yes. Had a lot of fun. There's more good than bad or ugly. There's things to pursue, roleplay to be had, growth to be done. All these things are good.

I thought I'd play too.

Ask any character I've written/played in any system or fiction for advice, and they will provide it, advice columnist style. Your problems or fictional characters' problems both welcome. Management is not responsible for the results of following said advice.

So, for all of you who don't know, Peter and I are buying a house.
The contracts exchanged today.

This means, all things being equal, completion on Tuesday. On Tuesday 20th March, we will own a house.
How cool is that?!?!?!

But yes, a request. Anyone who is around and able to help on:
The weekend of the 24th & 25th for painting
Sunday 1st April for lifting & shifting of heavy objects

Would be hugely appreciated. We can reciprocate with feeding and drinks afterwards, and much much gratitude.
Please let Peter or me know if you're able?

She dreamed.

She dreamed of sunsets; scarlet fire spreading across the horizon, a conflagration of heat and light. Molten gold in rivulets along dusky shapes, and over silhouetted distances.

She dreamed of strange and disturbing worlds, where people changed colour dependant on their mood, and where you could only ever speak of the emotion you felt in that moment.

She dreamed of flying; tumbling through a great expanse of blue and knowing that she would never fall because she was in total control. Exhilaration and discovery and freedom, all above a patchwork spread open to explore.

And then she woke. She woke to a world that seemed grey, faded, to the vibrancy of her dreams, but occasionally surprised her with a flash of familiar colour. She woke to a world that moved too slowly, too uniformly, compared to the changeable nature of the dreamscape she played in.

She would attempt to dream whilst awake, let her mind wander, and for some part it worked well enough. But the real world would steal in, and she would find her thoughts far from where she would have them go.

The real world stole her time away from her, made her thoughts grey-tinged and regular. She grew up and joined the steps of everyone around her, the pattern that everything followed.

But still she dreamed.

The month I start using my livejournal on a regular basis, to update everyone on my NaNoWriMo progress.
1810 out of 1667 words written.

I'm hoping that this is the year that I finish the goddamn story in terms of plot, and I can move onto editing it soon. Because I can feel a difference in it this year; it was harder to pick up and it's harder to get the words on paper, and if I don't get it done this time I'm not sure I'll carry on with it next year.

I hope I'm not the only one who thinks that would be a crying shame.
If anyone wants to read the progress, leave a comment and I'll set up a filter.

In other news, there is Life, it is full of stuff.

A circus in Bath, there is.
Here until the 25th, it is.
Interested in going, I am.
Tomorrow evening or Saturday, I am looking at.
7.30 tomorrow, the evening show is.
The times for Saturday's performances, I would have to check.
Interested in joining me, is anyone?


Update
http://www.netherlandscircus.eu/venues.htm
Sat, 24 September - 14:00
Sat, 24 September - 16:45
Sat, 24 September - 19:30

Tickets are 24 each for ringside, to 12 for the rear circle. We'd probably be looking at the cheaper end of the scale.

Would probably be the 7.30pm show, as Peter has rugby during day
