Dear Brain

I know it’s been a rough year other than the wonderful stuff that’s happened on several bright points over the last six months, but can we please stop being anxious for nothing? I mean seriously. Enough is enough.

We are not going to turn into a hermit again. That is the wrong way to live. Once we’re out there with friends, do we not have a blast? YES, WE DO.

So stop trying to make me feel off kilter about going to game tomorrow night. It’ll be great. We love our crew. Denny’s liked us last time. They will this time. It’s only four of us.

Besides, we can say ‘screw the points’ and have breakfast for dinner!

Thanks,
Jenn

Renewal

Spent the morning redoing my Patreon to make it more active and hopefully a better read for my patrons. It’ll still include chapters of whatever original project I’m working on, but I’m going to share my RPG writing and some fanfic on there too. I’ve been posting my fanfic on AO3 for years, but my patrons will get to read the stuff a couple of weeks in advance.

Also now that I’m using Jenn Moffatt instead of Lee Jay Stura, I should kill my Facebook Page. It’s convenient that it’ll link to here automatically, but it really doesn’t take that long to hit the share button or paste a link where I need it.

My cat is sprawled on the arm of my chair, and his floofy tail keeps tickling my armpit. He’s a huge cat. His name is Badger, and I’m his favorite person–like almost a dog’s person–which is nice except it’s really hot today.

Whirlwind and Thanks

We will not be admitting how long I crashed today. I have over 200 pages to edit, and when I’m done with that, I should send in my notice. I can’t do writing, webmaster, personal assistant, AND editor at the same time. My brain would go smooth, and I’d be a drooling idiot.
 
My writing and my two part time jobs are the priority now. The past six months have been filled with so many changes, and I’m very thankful that most of them were for the good. I just wish the first on the list hadn’t been such a sad thing, because my mom isn’t here to see what I’ve finally accomplished.
 
She gave me words. She gave me books kids weren’t supposed to read. She let me watch scary movies, noir detectives, and supported me whenever the various schools got bitchy about me reading those books and studying about witchcraft. Yay mom!
 
I miss my dad too, and I think about him whenever I watch Star Trek. He gave me new worlds to explore in reality and fiction.
 
I also know I would not be where I am without the Five and all the RP friends who have become family with me over the years. I will forever be grateful for their encouragement and support.
 
Now it’s time for me to feed Harley and Gus, because of all the things I do, keeping the furry kids happy is number one on the list. Badger’s the easy one. He only eats dry cat food.

May 2019 – WOW!

This is the best May I’ve ever had. Got a new job with the Paranormal Romance Guild, which is a resource for writers, and last night I was offered a publishing contract for Dreamspinner Press’ Advent Calendar, which means I’m a real author!!!!

Now I need to finish the Prenup from Hell and pitch it to DSP. I only have 3 or 4 chapters to go.

I’m exhausted but really happy. I also want to write a huge fic of Spock and Michael’s childhoods in the Terran Universe…because you know me. I love my fanfic.
