So I got a phone call that my assinment to Alabama may get diverted. I may end up in either Del Rio, TX (TX, but NOT where I'd like to be) or Biloxi, MS.  AAAAHHHHHHHH!!!! I have to move in 2 1/2 months people! Don't change things on me!!! Husband was crushed... and the worst of it is, that now I feel like I am up in the air all over again. I don't want to get excited about going somewhere when I'm not sure if I'm going there.


AAAHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oookay.  So I go out with some folks in my class tonight, trying to be all sociable-like.  Not bad, but kinda boring.  I plan on leaving at midnight, but one of the other girls says she's staying a 1/2 hour longer.  Damn it.  So I stay, then call the cab at 12:30.  Cab comes at 12:45 and I can't find her.  Finally get a text, she's staying.  Damn it.  I would have left at midnight. *sigh*

Rant part 2: One of the guys asks me if I was upset about our last "peer assessment."  Peer assessment.  Ridiculous.  Call it a popularity contest.  I answer that yes, I was.  I felt like I did a lot of things for the class and I wasn't rated very high.  He proceeded to tell me that he admired a lot of things about me, but that I come across as acting like I was better than everyone else.  He also said that I was a bit less tactful than I should be.  

Am pretty upset.  I don't think I'm better than anyone.  As a matter of fact, I have been feeling quite the opposite since I've been here.  I don't measure myself against them, I measure myself against my own standards, and no... mediocre is not good enough.  *sigh*  I think I'm a freak.  I don't understand the way people think sometimes.  I don't understand jealousy and I don't understand this either.  Gah.  This is why I don't usually even try to socialize.  I fucking hate people. (not individual persons, but just in general)

LOOKIE!  Recieved this today:

"We have reviewed “The Turning Away” and want you to know that it has been accepted for publication on BuzzyMag.com in 2012.  We believe that this story has the potential to be expanded into a novel. "


AAAHHHHHH!!!!  WOW!  I have to send in the agreement and then it will go to the professional editor.  OMFG!!!

Thank you thank you thank you to [livejournal.com profile] evenstar_estel for beta and idea bouncing, and [livejournal.com profile] tay_21 and [livejournal.com profile] prehistoriccat  for helping with the beta on this.    Ok.  Gotta go flail some more.

Ok, so I am at this school for the Air Force, and so I'm away from home staying in billiting. Damn crappy internet in the room keeps going out.  I'm in the lobby now so I can use the Wifi, which I actually just learned that they had down here. Grrrr.    Very frustrating.  I'm about done with ch 2 of "Grant Me Asylum" and I feel terrible for not getting a fic written for Wilemina.  Sorry!  School has been crazy, and I have a ridiculous amount of papers to write and speeches and studying and tests and AAAAAHHHHHHHHH!

Miss you guys.  Hate being so out of the loop.  Anyone else read the Primeval season 5 spoiler stuff?  Grrrrrrrrrrrrr.

Did I mention... grrrrr.

So I have been without internet for an entire week, although they promise me that this morning it will be fixed.  Hopefully I can get this to post from my phone...

Sorry E!!!  I have your birthday fic, but can't post until I get web.

Falling behind on reading!  Ah!  So sad, no interwebz! 

School is busy, have five papers/speeches to write already and a test next week.

Hope to have interwebz soon, miss you guys and need to catch up on all those lovely fics. :)

Okay so lots of stuff.  "Forever" is finished, finally... all 171,369 words of it (plus the smutty Missing Reels.)  Not so many reviews for the final chapter.  Kinda bummed about that, especially considering that it was 6.3K words and I put loads of work into it. *sad*

I have one chapter left on my original fic, and it is in progress.  I'm going to be fluttering my eyelashes for a few friendly betas once it's done before I get brave and send it forth to the publisher.

After that, I'm starting in on [livejournal.com profile] evenstar_estel'sConby birthday fic. :)   

Ok, so the real life part.  I got picked up to go to Senior Non-Commisioned Officer Academy.  For ya'll civilian types, it a 6 1/2 week long school that is focused on upper level leadership.  I'm supposed to be learning leadership from a strategic level and all that fun stuff.  It is pretty unusual for someone like me to get to go; usually class space is reserved for those that are a rank higher than mine or are waiting to sew on the stripe for the rank higher than mine, or people that have been Master Sergeants (MSgt) for a very long time.  A portion of class space is reserved for the occasional very sharp MSgt that scored in the top 10% on the promotion test, but did not have a high enough promotion board score to actually get promoted.  That's me.  I scored higher than 95% of the people that tested, but I didn't have enough points from my records review to get me promoted. (Mostly because I have only been in 16 years and the average for the next rank is like 22 years.)

Sooo, I get a call last night.  The highest ranking enlisted guy on base (works with the base commander) had to fill a spot in this class on short notice.  He saw my name on the list of the top 10% in my career field and he knows me (because I had to interview with him for my new job and through some other work stuff) he asked if I could fill it.  Tada!  I'm in.  Class starts on Tuesday.  Yes, THIS Tuesday, and it's in Montgomery, Alabama. Luckily, I'll have internet in my room. :)  Bummer to be away from the spawn and spouse for 6 1/2 weeks though.

This is actually a very good thing for my career, and being selected means my leadership thinks I deserve promotion.  It will help me to get promoted next year, that's for sure.  Bummer about being away though.  I'm driving out on Monday... 12 hour car trip, weeeeee.  So much to do! Gah!!

 So I put all the pretty for my Alice/Hatter fic on my LJ page behind a cut so that it was nice and easy. :)  Enjoy.


Behind THIS cut : ) )
casy_dee: (grin)

Sooo... final chapter of "Forever" is posted.  I still have to write the epilogue to wrap things up, but it is done.  Whew.  What a ride. 165K words on this one.  I'm guessing the epilogue will be another 3K or so. I'm hopeing I've managed in the last couple of chapters to wrap up my loose ends appropriately.  I'm very proud of both "Always" and "Forever," and I think I have done well by it.  Nothing like creating your own cannon, eh?  I'm going to miss my Hatter. *sniffle*  I may have to do a honeymoon fic.

I couldn't wait to get started on my original fic.  I hated to wait as long to start as I did.  Strike when the iron is hot, and all that.  Tonight I've written 565 words, and I think it is off to a good start.  Aim is for betweem 8-10K.  Wooo!  Am excited.   Gah, and scared!

Slow comms lately and I miss ya'll. *sad*  Well, I got my newest smutty Missing Reel posted for "Forever," and I'm quite happy with it.  I'm about 1K into "Whiteout," but Abby and Connor are refusing to get nekkid.  *sigh*

Ok, so something wierd happened.  Wierd.  I got um... scouted?  I got an e-mail from the v.p. and co-founder of a publishing company.  She explained that one of her jobs is looking for 'talent'... She read my fics, and she said they were good.  Her company is launching a literary magazine in 2012, and she wanted me to submit some of my original stuff.  So at first, I was thinking I was getting punked.  Nope. She's legit, the company is legit, and the magazine is legit.  So, wow, right?

Anywho, I'm going to be doing some 8-10K word fics and I just mght be batting my eyelashes for a few betas before I send them in.  I so completely understand if you tell me no when I ask, and it's cool.  Honest.  So... wierd.  I'm starting my novel after I work on the shorts.  They're from the backstory in my novel, so this should work well.  So.... wierd.  And exciting.  Course, I still have to sell my story, but exciting.

casy_dee: (What?)
I'm going a wee bit nuts.  My muse is pissing me the hell off.  I'm having a hard time with ch 3 of "Whiteout" and arggggg!  Just... ARRRGGGG!  *whimpers*  I feel like I'm wasting very precious fic time by staring blankly at the screen.  I've got all of 413 words.  Someone shoot me.

Oh.  And I have to work tomorrow for a little bit. :(  Sad.
casy_dee: (take that)

Holy frickin' writing, Batman.  FINALLY I finished chapter 39 of 'Forever.'  Gah!  I resolve to write the next one much quicker.  Next up is the final chapter of 'Whiteout.'  After that, possibly a Missing Reel for 'Forever.'  I refuse to think past that point for now.  I'm not short of ideas, just time and inspiration.

Well, I know I've been scarce and quiet, but that's just because I was in a sneaky hate spiral.  Clicky on the link for a humorous explaination.  You'll be glad you did.  I think I'm pulling out of it, which is good.  Damn us moody writer types, eh? 

I think I'll go stare at beaten and abused Ryan Reynold's bare (and beautifully ripped) chest now as a reward.  Thanks Alyse for re-wakening my Ryan Reynolds lust... teeheehee.  Yummy.  Then I'll follow with a shot of Andrew.  Yummy times two!

Well I've been strangely quiet so I figured I'd post and ramble and whatnot.  I've been positively buried in fic, but I've written nothing the past two days.  A bit of overload, I think.  I have started my Valentine's Day fic, and I've got a good idea of the whole thing.  I'm fairly certain I can get it written today.  Hubby is getting tattooed today, so he'll be out of the house for about five hours or so.  I plan to spend lots of that time ficcing.  Ideally, I can get it written tonight, edit again tomorrow, and start on the next "Forever" chapter.  I feel terrible about going so long in between chapters for that one. Usually one week in the absolute maximum amount of time I wait.  After that, I need to finish the last chapter of "Whiteout."  After THAT I really need to finish my smutty "Christening the Flat" fic... then back to "Forever," and then perhaps I can have a go at finishing PrehistoricCat's body swapping fic (although I wish SHE'd finish it.)  I still have a few other things I'd like to write... I had planned a fic based on the "Persistence" drabbles, one more fic where I killed Jack off horribly, and a 'Honeymoon in Vegas' fic for Alice-land after I finish "Forever."  I had a dirty little bunny about a trip to England for Alice and Hatter where they encountered a certain couple... but I am having trouble with my Hatter sharing.  His psyche simply wouldn't allow that.  However... I could  imagine all four of them getting it on in the same room, and enjoying a live action porn.  I don't know how that would play out, but I think it could still be hot.  Thoughts?

Life is life,at the moment.  My old section got me an incredible going away gift, and I'm touched beyond belief.  It wouldn't do to let them see it though.  They got me a bullwhip and mounted it in a shadowbox with a plaque.  Cool, eh?  It'll look suitably intimidating hanging over my hatbox in my new office (once I get it.)  My hatbox is a glass case with my Smokey hat in it from when I was a MTI (drill sergeant to the layman- I taught basic training.)  So far, my shadowing has consisted of me actually filling in.  Our 1st Sgt. has been out all week... Ive learned a lot, but I'm going to go nuts simply folloing someone around until I go to 1st Sgt. school in September.  Promotion results will be out March 10th, so we'll see if I get another stripe.  I'm doubtful.  Our secretary screwed up and a medal I was supposed to get didn't happen in time to be included for my promotion consideration so I'm missing out on points I desperately needed.  It's SUPER unusual to make this particular promotion the first time.  It's only 2% of the Air Force to begin with, and out of the people that do make it, average is on the 4th or 5th try.  Furious that someone's incompetence is fucking me over.  I can apply for supplemental consideration (once my medal has been awarded,) so hopefully I can make it that go around, but it's a lot of work to apply, and a longer wait to find out. *sigh*

Wow.  I guess I had some things to say.  OK, back to ficcing.
