Hello out there!

Happy December ^_^

Congrats to all who finished NaNo--including those who didn't meet the word count but went Hell for Leather for it anyway! :D We rock!

(I snuck in just under the gun on Nov 30 -- and wrote 15K words that day. I thought I was going to cry from anxiety. Thank goodness I had that day off work.) XD *total cheater* Tho' I did need to take a break from the office anyway and had booked the time off in advance.

If anyone is checking in here or following me for updates on "Merits", I mentioned on Twitter that updates would be coming every two weeks or so (to the best of my ability). I pushed hard to get weekly update out for you in November through the Grace of NaNo; my husband needs me back in action at home to help w/ the kids now that the holidays are upon us. ;)

There will not be an update tomorrow for "Merits", however there should be updates on:
- December 14 (Ch 47)
- December 28 (Ch 48)

New Year update schedule forthcoming; I'm waiting to hear back from work about what's happening to our office schedule there before committing to anything further writing-wise. T_T Things don't look good there... keeping my fingers crossed for minimal damage.

Also, yes, I'm going to *try* and do the 12 Days of SaiMono as I mentioned in the saiunpornium community several weeks ago. *cracking knuckles* Get ready for it!

As for other writing updates, the HP Sev/Mione ("Joy in Small Places") is nearing completion. Yes, it has been on the writing block for over a year--I didn't want to start posting anything (new) that wasn't at least within spitting distance of finished--if not finished and just waiting for final edits. I'm trying to curb my bad habit of running off on tangents on new stories and forgetting about the old ones. (Since I am really, really bad for that.)

Also, for anyone who is interested in writing professionally, I recommend you follow writer Vicki Essex's twitter. (https://twitter.com/VickiEssex) She started off as a terrific fanfic writer before moving on to write professionally, and was/is a big name in the A:TLA (Avatar: The Last Airbender) fandom. (Perhaps you've read some of her work? Yeah -- that's her!) She posts a lot of FANTASTIC references and resources for writers and editors, along with publishing opportunities, calls for submissions, and writing career job openings/ opportunities. Keep an eye on her blog & Twitter for updates -- she's got her ear to the ground & loves to share! (Especially Renner gifs--she has a sizeable collection... many are animated...)

As for me, it has been a long day at work and I could use a glass of water before I hit the elliptical to burn off the End of Day Office Stress that has accumulated. ;)

Have a great weekend, all! Expect some (writing) updates starting next week as we countdown to the holidays. ^_^
