So! Good news first! I decided to make a blog for book recs over on Tumblr since I like the accessibility of it and I think it's a good way to meet fellow book nerds. If you're interested:

There are only two recs up so far and they're two that are already on this journal. But there will be more to come. I will likely only be adding a select few here.

If I stay here, that is. That's the bad part. Like many other users, I hate LJ's recent changes and I heard a few minutes ago that even more changes are in the beta process. I reserved an account over at dreamwidth (no invite codes, this week only if you want to do the same!) because this website is going down the shitter. LJ hasn't responded to the backlog of complaints but apparently dreamwidth is working on updates for members who are jumping ship, or so I've heard. course, I'll stick around long enough to see if it sinks or gets back on its feet but I'm not expecting much. I'll tell you if I move for good, of course.

Either way I'll be trolling around the internet somewhere. And I hope all of you are well.

So I'm reading Blue Moon, the eighth book in the Anita Blake series.

Cut for matters concerning rape. You don't have to be familiar with Anita Blake to understand my outrage. )

ON A HAPPIER NOTE. I already have a nice spark of an idea for NaNoWriMo. Yes, I'm excited already. I reread my story from last year and, honestly, it's not as bad as I expected. Of course, it's still pretty cringe-worthy but there were parts I genuinely enjoyed. Specifically, the dialogue. I always hate my dialogue when I write it but end up liking it once I reread it a few months later.

If I choose to stick with the idea I have now then come November I'll be writing a fun, creepy story involving lesbians, cupcakes, and the supernatural. A winning combination if I've ever heard one. ♥
