State of the phoenix

Well, I didn't achieve the lofty goal of beating March's writing tally, but still pretty good at just over 62,000 words written. I expect by June's tally I will have a total of 4,000,000 words all up since I started writing fanfics.

Two stories completed already for my Clexmas Bingo card. Let's see what inspires me this month.

I pretty much obsessed over one story: A Different Corner. About eighty percent of the writing went into this story, and I'm still not finished. *sigh* It's now over 100,000 words.

I finally finished the next episode of the Illuminati story and I posted that on AO3 yesterday.

I have now locked all my AO3 posts so if you wish to read any stories on there, you will need to be registered. I will still post oneshots and updates to Nightwing Chronicles here. Once I have completed a story and it is posted in its entirety on AO3, I will post the link here. I will post chapters here but only by request.

On personal matters, I have been hired on as a copy sub for a media group here. It's only casual, so I have no idea how many hours I'll be doing week to week, but I have made it clear I'm flexible, ready, willing and able to do as many shifts as they'll give me. I like it so far, although I've had two days of training. It will take me a while to find my feet I guess, since I'm learning a new system (although it's way better than the system I was using previously). Since I'm picky when it comes to grammar etc, it's a job I think I can do well in. And the pay is good. Always a bonus :)

Having said that, I will still do proofreading for anyone who wants their professional work looked over. PM me for info.

Yay! You got the job! *cheers wildly and throws confetti everywhere* I'm so glad for you! :D

You did better than me on word count. I got just over 45,000 words in April and honestly I'm pretty happy with that. It was a busy month.

I haven't locked my AO3 stories down. I know I should but I haven't. I figure my original stuff is more important to protect so I'm putting my focus there. Hopefully we won't have another repeat of assholes stealing stories like that. *grumbles*

You know I'll have another one (or two or three or four) over the next year or two. Just gotta get them finished before I come asking. *huge hug*

Congratulations again!

Thanks Mary. So far so good. I'm pretty much on call for as many hours as I am able to do.

The trouble with my word count is it's all fanfics, no rl writing. I really need to get on to that.

I'm sure my count will go down now that I'm gainfully employed, haha.

You know I'm happy to do as much as you want me to do.

Hugs back

Congrats on the job and the writing goal! That's amazing!!

Also, not sure if you would be interested of not, but The Smallville Sunken Ships event just opened.

Hi, I did see that you had opened that. As much as I want to take part, I'm just not sure I can fit anything in along with my tons of plot bunnies I already have. :(

Work is going to keep me busy, that's for sure, but it's nice to actually be working.

I can agree with work keeping you busy = good thing!

But should your plot bunnies get lonely (or you just want to check out the fills), free free to stop over. :)
