I read, I write  
> It has been a week. Which I'm not going to rehash because I want at least a few hours last thing on Sunday where this week is done before I have to face another one *face palm*.

> I have finished and submitted a fic for geckoholic and franztastisch's friends fest! I struggled with this one, but I really wanted to give it a go. Also, summaries remain the hardest thing to write.

> In not unrelated news, I found this tumblr thing that explains the difference between Mature and Explicit ratings using licking an envelope. Which I found amusing and really helpful. This is going to be my go-to definition I think.

> The Masterlist for Promptathon 2017 is up on be_compromised and I'm working my way through the ones I missed.

> If you would like to read a book about girls being friends and feminists featuring punk rock music and all different kinds of girls coming together to fight back against sexism at a small town high school, Moxie by Jennifer Mathieu is the feel good book for you. I read it recently and said HELL YEAH a lot. It's 99p on Kindle in the UK and $1.28 in the US :)

I'm sorry your week hasn't been fun. :( *hugs*

And I always just pull out a paragraph from the fic for the summary. Unless it was for s specific prompt, in which case I put the prompt. Sometimes I even DO BOTH.

Thanks *hugs*. That was the low point, I think. Just had to be lived through. Everything is improving now and then TB weekend ahead!

I've been looking back and I mostly do the same thing. I think I just have envy of those people that can somehow summarise the point of their fic, and capture the tone, and without giving away spoilers.

Yay! I'm so excited for Thought Bubble. :D

Oh man, I know what you mean. It reminds me of when I had to write an abstract for my dissertation. It's so fucking difficult to do that without making everything a "what if" question and leaving it at that. That's why I lift paragraphs. :P

Yay new Inkvoices fic! I CANNOT wait, even though there's only a 1 in 11 chances it's for me...

And hugs for your week. I sympathize - I had one like that, thought I was having a weekend, and then ... something like 12 hours on the blackberry. But in between I got a fic done too (albeit late), so that's good.

See, I read this the other day and though 'uh-oh' but glad you ended up liking it anyway! I'm also writing the adventure of Clint and Wade that happens before/at the start of the tree fic - how would you about a beta read of that one when it's done? It's pretty mission based. Also I think i've made Clint more comics than MCU :/

There's been a lot lately,family as well as work, but I think that was the low point. And this week is a good one :)

Clint and Wade? CLINT AND WADE??? I am so in!!!! Just let me know when!

Also, glad to hear your week was better! I'm looking forward to a *mostly* work-free weekend...
