The tide flows in and the tide flows out, twice every day returning

I do not like to talk about stories while I am working on them or before they have been accepted, but I have completed my first piece of original fiction since the fall of 2015 and I think this is a good thing. A comment [personal profile] ashlyme left was the inspiration; at least I feel it bears the signs of recent exposure to Sapphire & Steel. If I can place it, I'll say more. I am still not doing so great, but I feel it is important to record this sort of thing when it happens. Autolycus, purring at Cape Canaveral volume and trampling on the keys as I type, feels it is important to pay attention to the cat.

This is only right and proper; cats are the most important, they all know that.

(Congrats on completion!)

He has a valid and important point. *nods seriously*

(Yay for completing fiction!)

Yes, you may be hanging on by threads, but please, let us not forget duty to cat?

Actually, cats are marvelous threads and life preservers--we can both attest to that.

Big congratulations about the story! I very deeply hope it gets accepted somewhere, as your stories always make a big impression on me, and I'd like to read another.

And I do hope things do get better. I didn't say so last entry, just raved about the music instead, but I hope this patch of exceptionally vicious insomnia goes away. And, well... I wish real life didn't keep supplying such horrors, of course.
asakiyume: (definitely definitely)

Hooray for writing! I am so glad you have the cats to keep you anchored here, even when things are terrible. <3

Autolycus does have a point.

Congratulations on the story - hope it sells. And cats, I think, are universal in their desire to be paid attention, high priority, whatever you're doing is unimportant. (Except when they don't want it, and will swipe at you with their claws for violating their unspoken request.)

It's a fantastic story, and it deserves a good home. (And I agree it's got an S&S feel.)

Respects to the cats, *hugs* to you.
