scfrankles: knight on horseback with lance lowered (knight)
Well, as my sister likes to put it, I have just handed in my homework to the [livejournal.com profile] holmestice mods. I’m pretty happy with my fic and I’m looking forward to seeing what my recipient thinks of it. I’m also pretty excited about finding out what my gift fic is going to be like. Posting will begin on 1st June and runs to the 14th.

I’ve also finally completed my [livejournal.com profile] heroinebigbang fic. It’s about 26,500 words long. My sister is currently reading it, just for (alleged) pleasure at the moment, though she is doing a bit of informal beta-ing as she goes. So far I have called the vicar’s wife Clarissa instead of Cressida, demonstrated a tendency to drop the pronoun “you” from questions, and teamed a shawl with a chiffon scarf—which is apparently “too much”. (The scarf is being replaced by a hat.) I am determined to get the wretched thing posted sometime in the first half of June, and then I can start thinking about writing something 50,000 words long. (^^”)

And in other writing news… I think I might be in the process of selling my first story. It’s for an anthology being produced by a (self-proclaimed) tiny publisher. It wouldn’t be much money but I’m very pleased—it’s a start. I’ll bang on about it in more detail if/when it actually happens.

To finish, a personal update: my sister is nobly fixing the results of years of water damage at the back of the kitchen sink, so we’re having to do the washing up in the bath. Not actually in the bath—in a plastic washing up bowl. But still—in the bath.
