Random update is random.

Greetings and salutations my sorely neglected friends! I return with a great deal of news and chatter. A lot of things in my life have changed recently, for the better overall.

First, the thing that's probably of most interest to most of you, my fics. No, I haven't been working on them lately (I'm sorry!), but this doesn't mean they're dead. My interest in fandom in general has declined a bit, but I absolutely hate leaving things hanging. I will finish Dichotomy and BIEH. After that you probably won't be seeing much in the way of fannish work from me, but I will finish those. I promise. Probably sooner rather than later, because I don't want unfinished work hanging over me while I try and tackle my original fiction.

On the subject of writing, I've finally decided to settle down and take a real, hard shot at writing original fiction. I started a writing blog at fiction_foxtrot for those of you interested in keeping an eye on me as I attempt to forge myself a writing career. Most of my posts will be going there from now on, although fandom related things will still go here.

In real life news, I've gotten myself a new job! An old friend got in touch with me, and I'm now working as a graphic designer for a new web design company. They're still in the infant stage, so I haven't left my old job yet, but I've already done work for one client. Here's hoping it takes off! Working from home piddling around in photoshop all day is far preferable to going nuts-insane at a busy coffee shop. And it pays WAY better. XD

Also, as most of you know, I dropped out of high school and have since despaired over my chances of getting back into school, but I have! Barring any unforeseen circumstances, I'll be starting a Police Foundations course this fall, which will ultimately lead to a Forensic Science course at the local university. I'm so excited!

So, yes! Lots of good, happy things, and NaNoWriMo just around the corner. :)

Sorry I haven't been around much guys, you know I love you. ♥
