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.

Just thought I’d do a round-up of what I’ve been up to.

1st April )

Round 5 began over on [livejournal.com profile] sherlock60 yesterday and it appears to be going well. We seem to have preparing for the new round for so long that it’s just nice to be over that hurdle and for things to be back to normal again. And I’m hoping to give [livejournal.com profile] holmes_minor a bit more attention now.

My [livejournal.com profile] heroinebigbang fic has now reached 20,000 words. The whole story is basically there but there are still scenes missing and it needs a lot of work in general. However, I am confident it’s all going to come together.

I’ve also signed up for [livejournal.com profile] intoabar and we all should be receiving our assignments in the next few days. This time I’ve picked Dame Hilda Bracket from Dear Ladies, and my randomly assigned character will be from either Sherlock Holmes (ACD), The Pirates of Penzance or Are You Being Served? I’m presently working through an obsession with Pirates, having discovered the 1983 film version on YouTube. (I can often be found striding home after work singing: “Come friends who plough the sea..!”) I don’t know if it’s permissible to have crushes on entire choruses but I seem to have fallen for the policemen and General Stanley’s daughters, and their respective choreographies. And Are You Being Served? is a sitcom from my childhood. My teenage nephew is a media student, and recently worked as a cameraman on a student recreation of one of the episodes. His enthusiasm made me decide to give the fandom a go. And lots of episodes are available on YouTube so I can refresh my memory.

Last but not least, [livejournal.com profile] smallfandombang will be starting posting tomorrow. I have chosen the 10th for my posting date--so very shortly my first long fic and my associate’s accompanying artwork will be making their public debut! (V. excited.)
