[livejournal.com profile] hp_halloween | [community profile] hp_halloween is posting today! I was the first person to get my gift - yay - and make sure to watch the comm for ALL THE AWESOME 200 WORD DRABBLES. So much talent!

I wrote a 20K fic this month and published it. It has over 2000 hits on ao3 and 200 kudos. I feel very popular. The fic is ok, too.

I just submitted my first entry for [livejournal.com profile] hd_owlpost! I have 2 more gifts to tweak out and send them in!

I'm severely behind in my MERLIN fic writing & need to get back on that. I am thinking of doing a bunch of holiday fics for Merlin. IDK yet if they're gonna be part of a fest or a prompt based exchange fest from me to my friends.

I also signed up for the EARLY BIRD special for [tumblr.com profile] slythindor100! It's mad exciting! Let's see if I follow through. I don't have any travel plans for the x-mas holidays yet but things always change.

[tumblr.com profile] siriusblackfest starts posting on SATURDAY! It's gonna be so awesome and we have like ridiculous amounts of WOLFSTAR that I can't even. I hope you guys watch that comm - on LJ: [livejournal.com profile] sirius_black

That's all for now, folks! Enjoy your WEDNESDAY (and HALLOWEEN)

Event hosted by [livejournal.com profile] rarepair_shorts | [community profile] rarepair_shorts

Is it your birthday? No? That's okay b/c the summer wishlist is here to grant you fic / art wishes, anyway.

How the wishlist works. From now until May 30, make a wish for your fav. rare pairs (or gen) stories. Your wish will remain anonymous until May 31. Then your wishlist will be open to the public and whoever wants to make your day will write you a fic or do art for you.

No pressure. All genres. All ratings. Rare Pairs ONLY. More info on LIVEJOURNAL or DREAMWIDTH for you.

What's the best part? THERE'S NO OBLIGATION. You do not have to grant ANY wishes because this fest is about YOU. If you wanna be nice and do something for others, we'll love it, but just sit back and relax, and write about what you wanna read.

Trouble with creating art w/ white boys.

Me: Are the faces too similar? (re: neville and charlie)
Mrs Dig: uh…yeah. If you told me this was a story about two clones, I’d believe you.
Me: That are in love?
Mrs Dig: nothing about you surprises me anymore.

Typical Sunday in the Dig household.

Audiobook Recap: May, June, July 2017

It’s been a while since I updated my audiobook posts. I was quite busy in May and June to do it, and then in June, I didn’t really listen to much b/c I just wasn’t feeling it. I put my audible account on hold because of the “not into it” and legit every gay audiobook I picked up, it was just more and more cliché, and I couldn’t stand it. It was also in June, I decided that I was going to eventually write a short gay (m/m) original fiction b/c (I’m sorry to say) there’s so much trash out there and I really need to write something I want to read.

You know what I’m saying?

Anyway, below is the list for May – July 2017. It doesn’t compare to my past updates but I am/was paying for this service and in July, I kinda lucked out and got to listen to SOME decent books.

I also listened to one female queer book for my GF’s bookclub. It’s called: Juliet takes a breath. I truly enjoyed it, and def. recommend it for queer POC people as it discusses a lot of things young queer people go through in a white world.

Anyway, here’s the list. Man, I’ve been slacking. I read some short stories on my phone too, but I had been so uninspired by life in May and June, I didn’t make any records of them. I’ll have to go and hunt them later.

Title Author Length (in hours) My Rating/Grade Date Finished
1 Rescued (Rescued Hearts, #1) Stevens, Felice 9 C 5/3/2017
2 Boy Crazy: Coming Out Erotica Labonté, Richard 8.75 B+ 5/13/2017
3 Wolfsong (Green Creek, #1) Klune, T.J. 18.75 A- 5/18/2017
4 More Than Everything (Family, #3) C., Cardeno 8 B- 5/24/2017
5 Interborough (Five Boroughs, #4) Hassell, Santino 6.75 A- 5/28/2017
6 A Marked Man (Assassin/Shifter, #1) Gasq-Dion, Sandrine 4 C+ 6/5/2017
7 Falling Hard (Eight Second Ride, #1) Sullivan, Sandy 6 C+ 6/8/2017
8 A Kind of Truth (A Kind of Stories, #1) Hayes, Lane 8.5 B+ 7/12/2017
9 Burn Voinov, Aleksandr 1 B+ 7/20/2017

SIGN UPS FOR LDWS are here and going fast!

I had participated last year and lasted a few rounds before I was voted off (hahaha) so I'm thinking of humiliating myself again. HEY, YOU SHOULD TOO.

No seriously, though. It's a lot of fun and you should JUST DO IT.

♦ The theme of the contest is Magical Items and Artefacts.

♦ The first prompt will be posted on Friday, July 7th, around 12pm GMT.

♦ Before you sign-up please take a look at the Rules and the Writers' Schedule for the eight weeks.

The only trouble is I think my travelling schedule might be in the way. But I have until Tuesday evening to decide.
