This Mercury Retrograde has been surprisingly active for me. It makes me wonder what’s coming when it ends around May 11th. This reminds me, I still need to read my AstrologyZone forecast. While I don’t subscribe to astrology as an answer in all things, I approach it more as a weather report that sometimes just misses, Susan Miller’s abilities and accuracies continue to astonish me.
Among the things accomplished/set in motion thus far:
There’s a lot of rewriting to do, and a survey to release – watch this space for said survey. I’m also going to muster up an article for Witch’s Voice that will hopefully a)fit whatever’s passing for a theme these days and b)will draw attention to my project.
So yes, I’m hurtling down the path towards something happening, whatever that may be.
Also, I decided not to do a post about it, but I did want to point to Diana Gabaldon’s comments on fanfiction. The general consensus is that fanfic is only illegal when the copyright holder objects. While I can’t speak for all creative people, I know that Joss Whedon has actually supported fanfic, and the reason the Doctor Who universe was resurrected is because fans kept it going with Big Finish Audio (now canon.) I’ll talk more about this in the future, first because I do write some for TV shows I love, but also because a lot of people misunderstand what fanfiction can really do for your writing. Do not assume because someone writes fanfic that they are a beginner even when the fanfic is awful.
So that’s what’s rolling right now. It looks like a lot, but trust me, it’s all done in very small daily steps so I can still wash dishes and fold laundry.
