Moving Journals

I'm moving journals.

1. This journal's filled with crap. I've gone through and selected the entries I wish to take with me. I'll be posting them over at the new journal as soon as I get around to it.

2. The new journal is going to be a place for my brother and his partner Sean to sort of log in and talk as well. A group journal if you will, so maybe it'll actually be filled with something.

3. We're moving to Dreamwidth. However, we'll be crossposting entries to rangeralone. We're rangeralone on DW as well. It was originally supposed to be a single journal, hence the name being something more to my tastes rather than something that would make you think of three.

4. I hope those of you who have friended me here will friend my new LJ. I'd sure hate to lose you all.

5. I'm going to leave this journal up for awhile in case it takes someone a bit to see this post. It'll probably take me a bit of time to get everything posted and crossposted to the new journals as it is.

6. I must thank Sammie for the idea. You're right. LJ's a drag compared to DW. No adds anywhere on that site. Nothing against LJ, though. It's a great site and has really served me well. The little I used it, anyway.

Happy New Year, Happy Birthday

Happy New Year, everybody. I hope 2010 brings you all joy and enables you to start over with a clean slate if you need it. May you triumph over all adversity in 2011 and kick resolution ass.

Happy Birthday, Hallieanna Grace Nicole Matthews. Beloved sister, angelic child. You would have been twelve today. May you watch over us all forever. I love you, baby girl.

Just for references, I raised her. I didn't create her. Hence the "angelic child" comment. I was the only daddy she knew, but she was not mine.

Again, a Happy New Year to all.

My tweets

  • Sat, 16:24: I need a beta. Not an editor. I know who I want, but I can't pay for every story I'll want looked at. Suggestions, anyone?
  • Sat, 16:26: What's the standard length all you writers try and make your chapters? For me, less than 3k words feels like a cop-out. Hell, maybe even 5k.
  • Sat, 17:36: Apparently they still haven't gotten the clinic ceiling fixed, so I get another week or however long off. Hurrah. Can you feel the joy?
  • Sat, 20:18: NaNoWriMo Week 1: 9,785 words. My novel makes me shudder but at least it's evolving...into an even greater pile of shit.

Happy Birthday!

Happy birthday to my adorable little migit-sized Sammie, also known as moonlitxmelody!

May angels smile down upon you on this day, my darling little sister, and may you always find reasons to smile. You are beautiful, inside and out, and my only wish this year is for your complete and utter happiness.

I love you, sweetheart.

Love Always,

Your Mickybear

Will Be Seeking Editors

I did not mention it here for fear of being thought an attention seeker seeing as how I very rarely post anymore, but my best friend of 25 years past away on May first. In her memory, an anthology of short stories is being compiled by her friends and family. So far, there are only five participants.

Me, awakeinthenight,
Samara Raine, moonlitxmelody,
Kit's brother Sean, my brother Jesse and more than likely my fiance, Melody, makemeasammich5.

Why am I telling you this if it does not concern you? Well, as a matter of fact, it may. As we all know, stories do not come out perfect. This is where you editors come in.

We will not need you for awhile yet, but both Sam and I thought it prudent to post an announcement early. Editors will be needed. We will be choosing 2 or 3 among all the applicants to look over each story. For each work, the editor will be paid $25.00. This includes assisting with corrections if needed. We were thinking of adding a self-imposed $5.00 correction fee, but we are not all that rich and, although I highly doubt anyone on my friends list would do it, we would not wish for editors to claim a story needs more work simply to gain more money. As of now, each editor will be presented with $100.00, and $125.00 if my fiance adds her story to the mix. I am still contacting Kit's family and friends, and it is very likely the number of authors will increase, which means so will the wages.

We will be looking for vercitile editors who are familiar in the following areas.

Spelling
Grammar
Flow
Plot
Characterization
Consistency

And anything else that can be thought of. Money is being dropped into the fund each month. There's a $25.00 entrance fee for the authors, so you needn't think we will not be able to pay you.

I will write more as the date when editors will be needed approaches, and shall announce how things will be handled then. In the meantime, you may fill out the following form and post it in the comments so I'll know you are interested. Feel free to be excited in the 'anything else' section. Both Sam and I do enjoy enthusiasm. -chuckles-



PS. I will be e-mailing Sam this form, so if you see it on her journal, that will be why.

Ha! You suck, Satan.

Looks like Chelsea and I are back together. Probably the shortest breakup in the history of engagement civilization. Take that, Luci. Can't keep love down for long, you bastard.

First Trial of 2010

It appears as though my first trial of 2010 is upon me. One that has me feeling as though my heart is being torn out with fingernail clippers.

I think my fiance and I are over.

Heaven save me, I hope I am wrong.

I Return

Well, after a very difficult couple of months, I am finally no longer in hospitals and casts or drugged on painkillers or anything like that, and a new year is upon us. Last year was awful. Sickness, death and betrayal riddled 2009, injuries, despair and breakdowns. However, there was one bright spot and she knows who she is.

I want to thank each and every one of you who supported me through it all. You are all wonderful and I am lucky to be able to call you friends. Thank you.

2010 is upon us. We've passed into a new decade. I simply hope I can make this year one of my best whereas 09 was my absolute worst. If not for me and my love, then for my lost little sister who I know would be proud of me for so much as daring to look ahead without her.

2010, bring it on.
