Floptastic Monday!

Holy guacamole, I am an epic flop right now.  Ya had one job, ya idjit and you messed it up.  Hah.

Anyway - HAPPY BELATED MONDAY EVERYONE!  How is your Monday treating you?  What kind of awesome plans do you have for words, graphics, or other creative stuff this week? 

Don't forget that we have the pool party challenge going on. You can find all kinds of amazing fandom suggestions and trope prompts here in the challenge tag.  We also have the Word of the Day and so many other wonderful prompts. 

I apologize for both the lateness and the sparseness of this post.  I promised to handle this and like the leaky bucket my brain is - I completely spaced it.

Am chuckling as I read this and also your post before it. :). Not *at* you, *with* you. Ha. Things happen, brains leak - mine is creating near flood conditions lately.

I am hoping to get some more words in for the month this week - have to assess a couple of short WIPs I have going, see if they still feel like something I should finish and post. I might work on some multimedia for a long-languishing WIP I still have a fondness for. And I want to write at least a short pool party ficlet- if I can just settle on a fandom, that's the hard part.

Hope the week treats us all well.

Oh no, feel free to laugh *at* me here. Because I sure as heck am laughing at me right now.

Good luck with the words! Finding a fandom for the pool party is always the hardest part. And happy belated birthday (since my scatterbrained-ness stretched through the weekend, too)!

Yes! We shall have a good week! I mean, if nothing else, I have a free book now. HAH.

I FIGURED IT OUT!!! My Pool Party fic. I have to write The Good Place.

duh. It was right there all along.

Sorry for the interruption, but I needed to squee about figuring it out. :). I think I kind of sort of have a mushy, sappy/sad friendship-fic idea for it, too.

YES YOU DO! I know season 2 is due out on DVD soon, so I'm praying Netflix gets it soon, too.

Sometimes the obvious is the hardest thing to see. :D

Interrupt anytime. I have kids, remember? And a cat. I'm used to being interrupted and ignored. Hahaha.

Oh boy! I know that feeling so well. I am just about to post the Weekend Challenge schedule for the second half of the year , and three weekends have already passed...

Oh well, onwards and upwards, right? This week I hope to get some more pool party icons done, and a bunch more Peggy squares for the blanket I'm knitting - I am at the halfway mark on them so YAY!

Good luck with the rest of the week being better!
Jul. 24th, 2018 05:00 pm (UTC)
Hahaha - whoops, right?

Exactly. And it's not like anything bad was happening either, just a lot of things. You can do it all, I have faith! Good luck with the knitting and the icons, too.

Thanks! So far, so good. :D

Don't forget to go vote in the poll for August Rush! We need to get those fandoms finalised this week!

I think it's that kind of week. I've been so busy chasing my tail at work so much lately that it's a wonder I can remember anything. And then I'm lucky to get anything done creatively.

I'm just at 50% of my goal for the month and am making a second (or possibly third) attempt at a pool party fic so I'm hoping that gets done.

My littlest nephew is turning 4 this week. He's a great kid, very into Beyblades right now. I don't quite get the appeal, but since I was probably into nonsensical stuff at that age, I'm not going to judge. We'll be having a party for him on Sunday so that'll be something to look forward to.

Hope the rest of your week is a good one!
Jul. 24th, 2018 05:03 pm (UTC)
Agreed! I know how you feel about work, it's like that here a lot, too. Hopefully things slow down a bit for you soon.

That's pretty good considering you haven't had much time to be creative. Good luck with your pool party fic!

Aw, they're so much fun at that age. I know you're right about that, especially considering the decade when I was 4 (not going there, hah). But in the end, if it makes him happy, it's worth it. I hope you have a good time at the party.

Thanks and you too!

Not the ideal time for me to be getting inspired since I'm out of action at a family visit at the end of the week. But I just wrote myself into a corner, or more specifically, wrote the Legends of Tomorrow into a corner having given them an anachronism they can't fix (basically, I've always been fascinated by the legend of the Princes in the Tower, and this fic has them being pulled into modern day, but the Legends can't restore them to the regular timeline since everyone knows they were never seen again after 1483 so restoring them to that timeline would end up screwing up the timeline anyway.)

Argh, that's frustrating! I love it when inspiration hits, but it's so hard when you can't actually do anything about it. Hopefully the inspiration sticks until you're able to do something with it.

Monday had me on the road to my mom's...with my daughter and her kids...to get some stuff she was storing before she sells the house. It was an up, overnight, pack stuff up, drive back home sort of trip, but nothing creative was done Monday.
I did handwrite some words this morning though...so that has to count for something.
Jul. 25th, 2018 06:36 pm (UTC)
Ugh, those kind of road trips can really take it out of you. And yes, it absolutely counts!
Jul. 25th, 2018 06:55 pm (UTC)
and it fed into a bit I just finished...2k/2 hrs worth...and three prompt posts fitted in.
So the morning was a productive one.

Wonderful! Congrats! I managed a 400 word book review, so that's something. :D
