Day 03

In your own space, set some goals for the coming year. They can be fannish or not, public or private. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

I absolutely hate resolutions but this sounds less... stressy.

1. Write more. I tend to write only challenge fics these days and I want to do more.
2. Clean out my basement and get rid of things I not longer need or want.
3. Be more activist, more revolutionary. We may need revolutionaries.
4. Lose more weight and exercise some.

Day 04

Comment to someone you haven't ever interacted with before or introduce yourself to someone you've interacted with and friend/follow them. Afterwards, leave a comment in this post with the equivalent of "I did it!"

I went to this friending post: http://st-aurafina.dreamwidth.org/241564.html, as someone suggested, and friended four folks and was friended by several others.

And a welcome to all new folks!

It's cold and bleak here in North Carolina, a beautiful state with a 3:1 idiot ratio.

But that's not what I came here to talk about. I'm going to talk about me - a subject that I don't often talk about because I don't always interest me that much! Or perhaps I simply know a lot about me already.

I'm mid 50's, married to the same man for 36+ years. We had one daughter who was killed in a car crash in 2005. She was our love and our lives so we muddle along as well as we can.

Fandom is my escape from that and my not so great health.

I came into fandom through Babylon 5 then I stumbled over Legolas. I had read The Hobbit, LOTR and The Silmarillion years ago and loved them. The film adaptations of LOTR were wonderful... yes, they moved things a bit, but the spirit was intact. I met some wonderful people, people who became real life, in person friends as well. I also met a few who were bantha poodoo.

I love to post links to my writing (I also have a fic journal [personal profile] alexs_storybook- ask to be added) and I also post my fics on AO3 and OEAM. I like to challenge myself to post every day in a given month - sometimes just random stuff, sometimes a theme such as Halloween in October, and sometimes drabbles or stories each day.

I have seen people doing Reading Wednesday and I think I might try that too. I uised to read 100-200 books a year but I do good to read 25 these days. Between the internet and other stuff, i simple don't find as much time as I used to. I hope to fix that some in the coming year.

It's getting late and I've been popping in and out working on this post for a while.

Good night, Mrs. Calabash, wherever you are...
