1. Go to page 77 (or 7th) of your current ms
2. Go to line 7
3. Copy down the next 7 lines – sentences or paragraphs – and post them as they’re written. No cheating.


All right. Invisible Library, page 77.

"Indeed I am," Vale said.

"Are they connected to the Fair Folk?" she probed.

Vale laughed, a dry surprised bark of a laugh. "My dear Miss Winter! Show me a society that isn't connected to the Fair Folk. I suppose you could say no more than most of them."

"And to Liechtenstein?" she continued.

"Ah. Now here we come to the nub of the problem." Vale frowned. "I should probably have offered you tea. I do apologise. I always forget that sort of thing. But in any case, from what I've heard, those Fair Folk in Liechtenstein are very definitely not affiliated with -- well, let us call them The Society. So the Ambassador's arrival under these circumstances is notable for its timing."

"You think he caused the explosion?" Kai asked.

"Possible." Vale waved a hand. "Possible. Certainly it is worthy of further investigation. And now, Miss Winter, Mr Strongrock, since I have done my part and told you why I am involved in all of this, I ask you to do the same." He leaned forward in his chair, dark eyes glittering. "If we are to progress, then there must be some trust on both sides."

So let's have some fun . . .

Name me a character A and a character B (possibly but not necessarily from the same fandom, preferably from a fandom I'm familiar with) and I will write a note/letter/e-mail/restraining order, written from A to B.

When I write a story, what do you immediately look for?

Since it's been six months or so, and I like this format...

Name me a character A and a character B (possibly but not necessarily from the same fandom, preferably from a fandom I'm familiar with) and I will write a note/letter/e-mail/restraining order, written from A to B.

The title meme!

1. Find a title.
Any title, be it hauntingly, lyrically beautiful, irresistably quirky or awe-inspiringly insipid.

2. Share it!
Leave the title in the comments.

3. Let me find the story your title should have.
I'll tell you a little bit about the story that I feel fits your title (which may or may not be the story I would have written for the title in question).

4. If you want, post this in your own LJ.
Find stories for other people's titles!

(Except that they don't have to be Christmas-themed, really...)

Every person who wants to gets to request a drabble (real drabble: 100 words exactly) from you. In return, they have to post this in their journal and write a drabble for you. (Actually, this is not required by yours truly. Request ahead.) Post all fandoms you're willing to write for. Your friends can pick a relationship, a story arc, a missing scene, or pretty much anything they want, unless the author has previously mentioned that they will not write it. They comment with what they want, and with a prompt, and you write drabbles and post it in your LiveJournal.

(Side note: you are free to pick the relationship, but I reserve the right to write my own take on it.)

(Side note 2: please do give me a prompt. Prompts are good.)


Fandoms: Avatar: the Last Airbender, Amber (Zelazny), Angel Sanctuary, Blake's Seven, Bleach, Cortege des Cent Demons, D.Gray-Man, Dr Who, Exalted, FFTA, Firefly, Full Metal Alchemist, GetBackers, Harry Potter, Hoshin Engi, In Nomine, Karakuri Circus, Knitting, New Angyo Onshi, One Piece, Onmyouji, Phoenix Wright, RG Veda, Saiyuki (any period, but no Hazel or Gato), Sapphire & Steel, Scales, Sherlock Holmes, Supernatural, Woxin Changdan, Yami no Matsuei, Crossovers of all sorts.

Ask any character I've written for advice, and they will provide it, advice columnist style. Your problems or fictional characters' problems both welcome. Management is not responsible for the results of following said advice.

If you were to spot me being hauled off in a police car, what would you suspect was my "crime"?

Post your reply here as a comment here, then echo this question on your LJ to find out what folks think of you.

This looks amusing.

Name three fics you think I will never, ever, ever write. In return (and if inspired), I will attempt to write a snippet of one of them.

Invent a memory of me and post it in the comments. It can be anything you want, so long as it's something that's never happened. Then, of course, post this to your journal and see what people would like to remember of you, only the universe failed to cooperate in making it happen so they had to make it up instead.
