It's been quite weird this week, not going anywhere. I get home, have dinner, read emails/RSS feeds/forums etc, get to 8pm and then wonder what to do for the rest of the evening. Which you'd think would mean that I'd got through lots of things on my to do list and caught up on my viewing, but you'd be wrong. I don't quite know what I did now, but I don't seem to have achieved much.
I do have 1500 words of a first draft for my unconventionalcourtship fic. I challenged myself at the beginning of the year to write at least 2000 words for everything this year because 1000 words or less is easy. At first I was wondering how to actually get the fic to go anywhere because the characters would just keep bantering, until I realised they can banter and pull the plot along at the same time. And then, when I thought of an ending, I realised it's merely the mid-point. The main thing is that I've really enjoyed writing it. I've hardly written any Blake's 7 because I always thought it would be hard (plus there wasn't anything I was especially keen to write) but I like writing banter and they do all do quite a lot of banter. I like it, I should write more!
Redemption is next weekend. Since the last one two years ago I've regained the ability to eat eggs and mushrooms. So the thing I am most excited about is eating fried egg at breakfast. The silly thing is that although I like eggs, I've got so used to not eating them that I just don't eat them. But there's nothing quite like a good fry-up. Hopefully Redemption 2011, where nothing went wrong, will have broken the curse where something went wrong every one since 2005, including becoming lactose intolerant at Redemption 2005 and getting dizzy the day after Redemption 2009.
