200 Followers?!?!?!?!

So this happened while I wasn’t looking:

…and then right after I nabbed this cap, I rocketed up another ten followers or so. So uh, HELLO NEW FOLLOWERS!! Are you… are you all on winter break? Did I do something particularly cool lately? Did I get signal boosted somewhere awesome that I don’t know about? I HAVE NO IDEA BUT: WELCOME!!!

In lieu of another inordinately long writer’s state of the union, my 200-follower update is a simple two-part goal:

1) Inbox zero on both Tumblr and Ao3 by 12:59PM EST Dec 31, 2015.

2) New chapters of both Grand Pas and Second Skin posted, also by 12:59PM EST Dec 31, 2015.

I can only hope that this goal is not dramatically overambitious. Bets are open on how close I cut this deadline. I know a(n embarrassingly) lot of people are waiting on responses from me, but with NaNo (and Rei and Abe’s birthdays - whose idea was it to make those 3 days apart?!) behind me, I think I’m finally going to have a chance to come up for air and actually start responding to messages again. Love and kisses for all of you, old and new, and bless you for your support!!!

The Mayfield Four

the second & final album from the mayfield four in which Myles Kennedy stated

“I wrote probably over 100 songs before we picked the 12 that made the CD. It became an obsession to make sure this was a great record.”

“When I started back in my Mayfield Four days, it was all very personal, in fact I can’t listen to the first two Mayfield Four records because it’s like listening to a musical journal.”

The Chameleons - Second Skin

A gorgeous, underrated song by an underrated band born in 1981 Manchester, right after the death of Joy Division. They should have been bigger. The song is off the album “Script of the Bridge”.
