up the ladder, down the snake, loving the game  
Downwards type news: I have posted my last fic at fwhg_ldws. I've had really great fun coming up with ideas for those challenges, and I know that I'm going to enjoy cheering everyone else on until the end of this round, because there are some fantastic writers over there. And wonderful mod-ly folk. :o)

And going up:

- I received my weasley_fest  assignment. There may have been a moment of plot bunny breeding which had to be quashed in the face of an unfinished spring_fling  fic. I shall go back and smile at it a lot when said spring_fling  story is finally finished.

- Prompts are available to claim at flames_n_tatsfor the National Charlie Month Fest, which is for April. :o)

- And, ohmygosh, I am one of the very lucky people in a prize draw to win an Advanced Readers copy of The Demon's Lexicon by Sarah Rees Brenan! *flails* If you haven't heard of this author, who has in the past written fanfiction and parodies under the names Maya and mistful, allow me to tell you that she is so fantastic that I had the release date for her first ever novel written on my calender before I even knew what it was going to be about. June 2nd 2009. I can promise not to give anyone any spoilers, but I can't promise not to collapse from sheer excitement the second I get ahold of this treasure. Excuse me, I need to go and dance around the house with a dazed smile on my face now.

Well, actually, I need to go and cook dinner, make lunch for work tomorrow, and write stories. But there will be dancing and a dazed smile. For quite some time.

I've been entering a million drawings at Goodreads for advance books. So far, I've won two.

Sweet! I can't believe you managed to get hold of one, I forgot to enter, I knew there was something I should have done when I got home last weekend *hangs head in shame* - I expect a review as soon as its finished, not that I'm expecting you'll be biased about it or anything ;p

Sorry to hear you didn't make it through to the next round of the drabble - though I think the advanced copy of Branan's book by far makes up for it :D

I know! 'Tis so very fantastic! :oD

*tries to look innocent* Me? Bias about this book? Never.

Yeah, I was having fun with those challenges. But I guess that means more time to crack on with other writing anyhow. And with an ARC of The Demon's Lexicon I can't say I haven't been cheered up!

*points at icon* Quote from book! See how fantastic this book is! *grins*
