I'm a 33 year old Scottish woman, trying to get my journal groove back. I'm a mum of three boys from teen to newborn, and work in healthcare but (thankfully) I'm on maternity leave just now. I mainly write about daily life, the struggles and highlights of attempting to adult and parent and be healthy as a highly strung, stressed over-thinker who doesn't like herself most of the time.  

Wow, I sound fun.  Should I mention that there will be wine, gin and chocolate?

I was obsessed with my Livejournal back in the day - I started it back in 2003 and even though I've only dipped in and out of it in recent years, writing is still very much how I make sense of my life and my mind. That's why I'm trying to reignite that obsession I once had...though it's difficult with increasing grown up responsibilities and shrinking time of my own to put pen to paper fingers to keyboard.  But I know I need the chance to record snatches of life as it flies past, and an outlet for when my mental health takes a dive. 

I swear and I like to write no-holds-barred.  I'm very liberal and support choice - be that choice of who you love, choice over your reproductive options, or just the freedom to chose what you're going to watch on telly tonight. I'm doing my Masters in weight management so I try to live healthily through fitness (like dancing and weight training, albeit on a very beginner level) and healthy eating, but more often than not find myself alone amongst the crumbs at the bottom of a packet of biscuits. I'm book obsessed (mainly literary fiction and never fantasy, chick-lit, or much sci-fi), love a good tv series (Mr Robot, Stranger Things, The Handmaid's Tale, OITNB, Top of the Lake and Homeland have been recent highlights), and sometimes I even get out to see friends.  Some or none of this may come out in my writing.

Along with a lack of time, I guess part of why I've lost touch with my journal has been my shrinking friends list.  It's hard to make time to update when it feels increasingly like you're just shouting into a void. So I'd love it if anyone out there who is in a similar place in life or who is into similar things would like to take a punt on my journal.  I wont promise a very active journal but I am going to try, and I'm also going to try and be a good friend in return.

It's a good job I've been with my husband for ten years, because I'd suck at filling out a dating profile.  Feel free to swipe left (or is it right...? I'm not on Tinder).

Cracktastic, right? I always wonder how people come up with hilarious stuff like that. Do you know any other funny gifs or manips? Please, share them with me! I always enjoy a throw your head back, belly hurting laugh. :D

a day most deviant

gracerene: (Daily Deviant)
[personal profile] gracerene
The always lovely [personal profile] alisanne post some DD ruminations which totally inspired me to take a think on my own participation in the [insanejournal.com profile] daily_deviant community.

I haven't been a member for all that long now--I officially joined in January 2016--and when I was invited, I told myself that, for as long as I could, I would try and write a different pairing every month (and for the major anon fests). So far, I'm mostly kept that promise. Technically, this past month, I had a repeat pairing with James Sirius/Teddy, but considering the fic also included H/D, I'm considering it different enough to count. ;)

Part of what I LOVE about [insanejournal.com profile] daily_deviant is the opportunity for me to really stretch my writing muscles. I try and use the space to really push myself and try out different pairings and kinks (of course) but also new styles or POVs or genres. I thought I'd list out some of my "firsts" below. :D

(also, be warned that all of the fics below are explicit, and most of them have additional warnings. some may also be locked on AO3 to those who have accounts, depending on content. read at your own risk!)

First time writing a pairing featuring an inanimate object: Take a Little Ride (Sirius/Motorcycle)

First time writing a threesome: Give In, Don't Fight It (Albus/James/Teddy)

First time writing femslash that wasn't just a PWP: the thrill of under you me (Cho/Lily Luna)

First time writing outsider (and child) POV: In Plain Sight (Ron/Victoire, POV Hugo)

First time writing in first person: Drunk on the Scent of Your Skin (Draco/Remus)

First time writing creature!fic: Bite to Break Skin (Draco/Theo)

First time writing about two main pairings and with more than two POVs in the same fic: Switch (James Sirius/Teddy and Draco/Harry) [not yet on AO3]

Woo! That was fun. I just love this comm SO MUCH! I was working on my contribution for August yesterday and I am feeling pretty excited about it. :)

Birthday wishes and useful stuff

19 July 2017 10:35 pm
reijamira: ([Stock] cake greenish)
[personal profile] reijamira
First of, happy birthday, dear [personal profile] flarelunari! Look, the King is dancing just for you! How's that for a birthday present, eh? :D



Now to the useful stuff I promised in my headline.

# First, icons for writers and book lovers. [personal profile] flarelunari, you remember us talking about needing some writing icons? I just stumbled upon a few and wanted to let you (and everyone else, of course) know. They are here and here. It's not much but it's a start.

# Another really handy thing I came across today is a website that helps you find the html code for a certain symbol or character. Ever wanted to place a 🎔 in your entry or comment? Or a 𝄞? What about this ⚔? There are tons of emoticons, characters and symbols. And it's easy to find and copy them. Just go to amp-what.com and discover a character. Here, look: ☕ Aww, that's too good. I like that site!

I wanted to write more but it's late over here (after 11pm) and I have to get up early in the morning, so this little update has to do for the moment.
