Happy Anniversary to Us!

It's our anniversary. Fourteen years ago today, fosteronfilm and I were married in a private ceremony beside a waterfall in the Pocono Mountains. Matthew is my best friend, my sweetheart, my helpmeet, my confidant, my joy, and my sanctuary; he's my everything.

Happy Anniversary to us!

And, amusingly apropos, a link ganked from teflaime: The Kama Sutra as performed by gummi bears.

   

Writing Stuff

7 out of 7 sections on the research/writing freelance gig completed. Counting on my toes, yes, that is indeed the whole thing. Whee! Donedonedonedone.

Before sending it off, I want to do a few passes for editing and style, and make sure I didn't contradict myself somewhere or make any embarrassing gaffes. But for the most part, it's ready to go.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again: writing nonfiction is tons easier than writing fiction.

And for my next freelance job, I've tentatively tossed my hat into the ring for a gig to write up wedding veil descriptions. Ah, the glamorous life of a freelance writer. Snerk. Until I get concrete specs and confirmation, it's back to work on le fiction. Except my gears seem in need of oil. I'm having a hard time disengaging from analytical scientist mode and activating creative fantasist mode. *shakes muse*

As a serendipitous segue, I'm writing up my answers for two interviews: my Apex Digest featured writer one (psst: Buy a Best of Apex Digest 2005 chapbook, yo!), and also one from a college student who found her way to my ferret and skunk website, and is writing a paper on animal rights and how the Internet has impacted the movement. So, yeah, I need to make sure I send the right interview to the right interviewer or crazy wackiness may ensue.


Received:
- The tentative ToC from jimhines for Heroes in Training. Tentative still, so I can't post it, but I can engage in some preliminary squeeage. *squee!*
- 111-day personal "pass" from Fantasy Magazine. They "thought the story was well-written, but . . . " Snartleblast.

I'm feeling:
accomplished accomplished

Thanks, sweetie! And yepper, it was in Bushkill at Mount Airy Lodge. It was actually a bit chilly, as I recall, but I was so nervous I'm not sure if me not being able to feel my extremities was due to nerves or the cold.

Yeah, it's sort of a surprise to me too whenever I think about how long it's been. And at the same time, I can't conceive of a time without fosteronfilm.

The conga rats are dancing for both of you!

And, coincidentally, I live next to a waterfall in the Poconos.

Okay, it's not an impressive scenic waterfall, like one might get married next to, but it does descend, and water runs there.

Okay, okay, water only runs there when it rains. Lots. But, still...

It is in the Poconos.

Or on the edge of them, anyway.

Ahem. Now back to your regularly scheduled congratulations... =)
