As I'm using dreamwidth more I'm trying to clean up friends list between both the sites. I will continue cross-posting to both but anyone I've currently friended on both will notice I may defriend you on lj. Rest assured you will be on my dreamwidth circle. I'm hoping this will make my reading sessions easier. 

Please feel free to leave your dremwidth username below if I haven't already friended you and since I'm talking about this, it's always a unfriending amnesty on my journal. but I will miss you. :(
ladyoflisquill: (Nanowrimo)
So just to expand on my earlier short post about being a, ahem, WINNER of Nanowrimo this year, I have to say a couple of things.

Firstly it would not have been possible without the use of the website Write or Die. It might not work for everyone and it might not work for me on all writing projects but it was perfect for nanowrimo. Honestly the thought of hearing crying babies or that peanut butter song if I stopped writing was enough to keep me going a lot of the time. 

Secondly, and more importantly, I would not have been able to do it without my writing buddy mapleshy. Honey, I've known you for years but you still inspire me to do things I never tried before and make me feel like I'm not a complete freak while doing them. That is more valuable than any winner icon can ever be. Thank you for being my buddy in nano and in life.

Finally, I was playing around with wordle as I progressed over the month and thought I'd share the evolving progress of my nanowrimo novel.

The "guess my ship" meme is a lot of fun. I still have 13 8 ships which no one has guessed. To help, I've added fandom hints to the pairings. This was almost as much fun to come up with as the pairings themselves. 

Have a look at the post and see what you recognise.

I also realised today I never included John/Rodney... which is a HUGE oversight. Let's just pretend I thought it would be too obvious.

[ profile] berlinghoff79 did this meme a few days ago and I loved it so much I had to jump on board.

1. Think of up to 20 ships you support. 
2. List them using descriptions of the characters involved rather than their names.
3. Have your f-list guess as many of the ships as they can.
4. Fandom hints will be given if asked in the comments.

ETA: Added fandom hints for remaining 13 7 ships to be guessed.

Thanks to [ profile] butterfly  I am now an official Google+ girl. You can find me over there as ladyoflisquill.

Let me know you're handle and I'll add you. I think this could really take off but we need the numbers so shout if you want an invite.


ETA: [ profile] emmagrant01  has an interesting update on using pseudonyms for google accounts. Perhaps the grass is not as green as we hoped. Will have to wait and see.

I often see a lot of lj friends post about issues relating to white privilege or male privilege and I wanted to say something on heterosexual privilege.

I was having dinner last night with a group of girls - some friends, some acquaintances, some I'd never met before. One of the girls who got married about 4 years ago, and who was a single mother previously to that, was saying how her and her husband would have been better off financially if they hadn't of gotten married. As a single mother she would still get lone parents allowance and mortgage allowance but as a married couple they get nothing.

And I was sitting there thinking, wow, I can't believe you're bitching about the fact that you have the choice to get married. I'm sorry you feel being legally entitled to be considered in your partners life is such a burden. I'm sorry that you will never have to face the reality of being turned away from your partners bedside because you are legally strangers, or that your child will be taken away from your partner in the event of your death because they are not biologically related.

And she finished off by saying something like, 'Oh but we wanted to be married, so we just did it'. 
Yeah... I'm glad you could do that!

I keep promising I'm going to do a proper post about all the many and wonderful things that have been going on in my life but I can't seem to find the time. This is not a bad thing but still missing u guyz. I'm on something like skip=340 and trying to catch up.

BUT... you all have to listen to this: ontd_startrek: SPORK! AN EROTIC LOVE STORY Some freaking GENIUS edited together Zachary Quinto reading the ST novels into a piece of unbelieveably fanfic/podfic/mash-up. LMFAO! I literally had to cover my mouth to stop LOLing.

Enjoy and Happy Holidays to all!

Pick five of your favourite shows*, in no particular order, before you read the below questions, then answer them!

Current or just-finished shows only, 'kay?

1. True Blood
2. Stargate Atlantis
3. United States of Tara
5. Doctor Who/Torchwood

* I'm actually surpised at how difficult it was to pick only five. I had to cut Merlin, Being Human, Glee (I can't resist a good musical number), CSI, Supernatural and perhaps at a push Dollhouse, not to mention the older shows I love.

ladyoflisquill: (MISC - Don't Panic by unknown)

My external hard drive, which has everything on it from every photo I've ever taken, my music and stories to all my accounts and pretty important digital copies of documentation, has crashed!!!!!

I can't get anything off it.

Please, please, PLEASE, tell me there is someone out there who can help me with this.

When I turned it on this evening not all the folders were showing up so I tried turning it off and letting it cool down. Now when I turn it on it starts as normal but then after a few seconds makes a loud clicking noise as if processing but the drive does not show up on my laptop. The noise continues for a second or two until the light starts flashing on and off and the noise stops completely.

It's a Freecom 400GB if that helps.

Please pass this around, pimp it or do whatever else need to be done. My whole life in on that hard drive.

ljay don't fail me now!
