oh my...

I seem to be laying lower than usual.

Nothing's going bad.  I got caught up in twitter, where I seem to be hanging around talking to a lot of writers, the news out of Egypt, writing, getting some preliminaries out of the way before March when I have surgery on my left rotator cuff.  And actually reading fic - on my kindle (discovered it's easier for me to read than a lot of text, although I'll read anything, and much easier for my spastic left hand to support it's shape compared to a standard paperback book.  I get spasms in my hand sometimes if I hold a book too long.)

Seems I'm spending huge amounts of time playing with my original fics, too.  I am writing the occasional IK drabble but none this week so far, but I'm spending probably 90 percent of my writing time on stuff that's not really fanfic, although a lot of it has folktale/mythic overtones. 

I am around everyday, even if I am not writing as many journal entries on a daily basis...it's not like I'm gone...just semi-lurker...

I figured with the Egypt crisis you'd be hanging around a lot on Twitter and the news sites instead...how sad is it that I know your tendencies well? LOL.

Good luck with your original fic! =) Writing is writing, whether its worthy of sharing or not.

It is, and its one thing I really, really miss about living in Europe. I can't stand to watch any news from an American media outlet, because I can see the (very frustrating) spin and dumbing down. Ugh.

I only watch American TV news sources if it's a rapidly breaking story and it's just starting to develop. I have an odd selection of news preferences. Al Jazeera is up there, the UK Guardian, the Daily Beast for the American viewpoint, BBC sometimes, Slate (not sure where to classify them) and then a lot of specialized things, like Wired and Slashdot, and the Economist, and then certain news aggregators and reporters. It keeps me informed.
