    September (cough) state of (hack) the (urgh, snot, splort, groan) writer

    I've been sick for the last three weeks. Frelling magnificent.

    that third thing: c25k

    Told you I was scatterbrained... I finally remembered what that third thing was that I've been doing. It's called 'c25k'.

    C25K stands for 'couch to 5k', as in 'couch potato to 5 kilometer runner'. It's supposed to lead you from being a fat slob sitting in front of the television to be able to run for 30 minutes - or roughly five kilometers - in about nine weeks.

    I've just started week 3, but I've been doing this for about five weeks... blame school holidays ending, trips to Estonia and some really shitty weather for making me repeat (not abandon or postpone) weeks 1 and 2. I have to say though, I think it works. It's scary when you start a new week, and the first attempt at each new week is always worse than the one before it... but I'm doing okay. I'm running the distance.

    If you've ever wanted to get into shape, but just don't know how, then this is the easiest, cheapest way to get into shape I've found yet: all you need is an mp3 player and a pair of sneakers. And clothes - most people look at you oddly if you're not dressed.

    Follow this link and download the podcasts, do what the nice lady says and you'll be on your way in no time.

    Oh mah gawd, it's alive! It's ALLIIVVEEE! (muahahaaa)

    Yah yah, I know: long time no see.

    Well, I thought I should kind of fix that. 'Kind of' because I'm kind of scatterbrained at the moment, don't really have the time to dedicate to a proper entry and a third reason which totally helps explain things. I have been busy in life. The good sort of busy, I guess, which leads to not much writing but doesn't lead to horrible depression and ennui. I've not really had much time to interact here, so... I'm alive. And writing - slowly.

    When it comes out, out and about chapter 10 will be the last. I hope it's as awesome as it is in my head...

    And when it comes out, king of diamonds chapter 28 won't be the last... but it will also be awesome.

    Promises, promises, I know, but almost one thousand people can't be that wrong, can they? Yes, that's right, almost a thousand people think I'm kinda awesome! I'm shocked. I'm also hoping that it's a modicum of talent and not merely having been here forever.

    So what have I been doing when not-writing? We-eelll... I've been coding. It might be going somewhere. And once I finish (actually, once it's 'good enough') then I might use what I've learned on something else. Something writing-y related.

    Stay tuned.

    So, what've you all been up to?

    Con day zero: 96* hours remaining

    So: Thursday was the first day of the con for me, same as it was for everyone on staff who wasn't actively involved in any real pre-setup.

    Thursday (super early!) saw Tabitha and Kevin arrive. I believe the flight went relatively well, but at something like 14 hours plus, it was exhausting as heck and the pair understandably needed to decompress and get some energy back. They did that by soldiering through the jetlag like real troopers and enjoying themselves some Helsinki in summer. The only stories I could really tell at this point would be second hand, so I won't embellish - they had fun and that was pretty much that.

    By the way, have I said yet that Tabitha is super-super-nice? And that so is Kevin? Because they both are. Honest. I've seen pissy diva's and pushy little monsters but Tabitha is so awesome and a lot of fun to be around, and Kevin knows his stuff when it comes to the little details that really round out the experience for the guests. If I ever get to do this again, thanks to the little tricks he just flat out does at the flick of a wrist (hoof? I guess he's an honorary pony, though - without being mean, honest - I'd see him more as a sharp-eyed griffon!) I'll be better next year.

    I didn't get to meet Tabitha on Thursday, and to be honest other than walking to a bunch of hotels I didn't care about because I didn't really need to know where they were and seeing a bunch of people I would come to care about but at that moment didn't (no offence, but on Thursday everyone was a stranger in person!) and faffing around at the airport with the sorts of minor schedule mishaps that can occur when Finnair (I think, don't quote me on that) loses an entire effin' plane's worth of luggage, everything went pretty well.

    My target, Anneli, made her way to Helsinki fine, but remember when I mentioned about losing all the luggage?

    Yup.

    You may have seen her joyful reunion with her bright yellow suitcase on twitter from the Friday, because her belongings had a mini vacation of their own in kocha bamba...

    I could have seriously missed Thursday, but I will totally agree that it was good preparation for what was to come...

    *yeah, I know, the actual time the con had wasn't that long, but what'm I gonna do, huh?

There comes a time in every growing dragon's life when he has to go visit the doctors. Twilight just needs to show him who's boss... hijinks, as they say, ensue.

Awesome story I was laughing my ass off most of the time!

#2 · 158w, 2d ago · · ·

ok, ok, this was pretty good. It amused me.

A few little parts in this (grammar wise) could be changed, but they're not so rampant that it takes away from the story, good job!

#3 · 158w, 2d ago · · ·

The entire story was cute, but for some reason my favorite part is the idea that dragon saliva can eat through diamond like a human's can through hard candy.:moustache:

#4 · 158w, 1d ago · · ·

I'd try to bite people if they were trying to neuter me as well.

#5 · 158w, 1d ago · · ·

Oh, Celestia. :trollestia: You and your soaps...

#6 · 157w, 4d ago · · ·

:moustache: < "Needs more moustache."

#7 · 153w, 2d ago · · ·

I've always wondered how Celestia sends scrolls (and nurses) back

was there a detail I'm forgetting? can she just wave her horn and zap it back?

#8 · 144w, 6d ago · · ·

I'd definitively recommend reading this before reading "Teething Problems", the two stories really tie in well to each other.

#9 · 106w, 20h ago · · ·

LOL nicely done

#10 · 75w, 5d ago · · ·

I love it! :rainbowwild:
