And I'm Back in Business

OMG - I have a computer again! It's like suddenly remembering what an orgasm is like after weeks without one. I missed it so, so much. And yeah, for those curious, I'm hunched over my computer like a little Gollum, rubbing the shiny white case and muttering 'my precious' over and over.

*cough* So I have a love/hate relationship with the thing. When it works, I love it. When it breaks, it is that evil bastard that I always knew would leave me someday and I hope it rots in hell. Although I want to call it a bitch, curiously. Suppose that's my latent lesbian tendencies coming to the fore, considering how much caressing it's getting right now.

Edit: And for those who wonder what evil befell my computer this time, it was the power button. Yeah, that's right, the power button, three months after the warranty ends. Because you don't need to build those to last or anything. They're hardly ever used, right? Frick - such a bunch of crap, I swear.

Okay, deep breath, good air in, emo-angst out. Ready to go on.

In any case, writing commences now, as fast as I can make it happen. Which, as NaNoWriMo has taught me, is about 800-900 words in 10 minutes, if I write like a crazy person and don't mind a few grammatical errors in my blitzkrieg of a first draft. Which is a good thing, 'cause sometimes 10 minutes is about all I've got these days.

Speaking of...

Since life is getting a little better this year than it was last, I believe I'm going to try for NaNoWriMo again. Hope it turns out well enough to put out...once all the other stories are done, that is. Wishing any other NaNoWriMo writers the best in their efforts this year, as well. If anyone has wanted to start a writing project and is having trouble motivating themselves to get it started, this might be something that you'd enjoy. Check it out.

So glad you're back! And don't worry, you're not too strange, I do that whole "my precious" thing with my laptop still and it's certainly not new any more.
I love your stories. I admire the time, detail, work and effort you put into them. I look forward to each and every update. Keep it up, and thank you for sharing with us.

I am the same way with BOTH my Laptops (Vaio and Mac air). I can so relate. I am so addicted to The Last Pure Human so I am so relieved you will continue. Need my Max and Kasan fix.

Yay for being back. Comps tend to break at the most inopportune of times.

Wish I could try NaNoWriMo alongside with you but... stuid University is eating my life. (I so want to wrimo this year, too. Maybe I'll sell my soul and try anyway...)

Maybe there could be some The Other Side of Kazaana before nano whisks you away, yes? (Sorry, hopeless fangirl.=

Thanks for the welcome back, guys! Man, nice to be back!

And saraste - thank you you so much for the comment! I think you just found my NaNoWriMo for me. I'll see if I can write 50,000 words of Inuyasha fanfiction, and see how many of my fanfics I can finish off, finally!

It would be nice to quit leaving those hanging, and also get to concentrate on the original stuff afterward without feeling so guilty about it! :-)

I feel like I should have a big cigar now and say 'I love it when a plan comes together,' LOL.

Hiya, Welcome back
I'm so glad to hear from you. I keep checking back to see if you updated...

I hope to see an update soon but Nanowrimo eats time like the beast it is... But remember all the other people doing the same( me included, third year running)

Good luck,
