Journal Entry: Fri Jul 4, 2014, 12:40 AM
GSJennsen is on a tagging spree this week and I'm biting. Because she is awesome.

The rules if I tag you:
1) Don't think just share the love!!
2) Each person has to share 10 facts about themselves
3) Choose 10 people and put their icons in your journal.
4) Go to their page and inform them that they have been tagged by you.
5) Not something like "You are tagged if you read that".
6) You have to legitimately tag 10 people.(+ESPECIALLY yours waifus /hasbandos/mans or your Deviant Family)
7) No tag-backs.!!!!!
8)You can't say that you don't do tags.
9)You MUST make a journal entry! No comments.

So here it is:

10 Facts About Me:
  1. I buy a wolf calendar every year. I don't generally advertise that I dig wolves, but I do. I think they're pretty.
  2. I'm a cat person who secretly wants a dog. Like a LOT. I feel like I'm betraying my cats by desiring a dog... I can just feel their little eyes screaming "betrayer" at me if I ever let a dog into our house. 
  3. I enjoy self publishing to a ridiculous degree. I know it's work, but when I do it, it feels meaningful and therefore rewarding. It reminds me of when I was in art school and had finally mastered throwing a pot. I slap the slab of clay on the wheel and make it spin. Moments later it's a vessel. Something I made. The work itself to get there is involved, but the end product is the reward, especially once it's glazed and fired and catching the sunlight. I never sold that many pieces of my pottery, but I'm selling a crapload of my books now. The process means everything. The end product is just the reward.
  4. I went to my first lesbian wedding last weekend. It was low-key, but the biggest thing I noticed was that most of the guests were family. One of the brides even mentioned in her toast that it was the straightest gay wedding ever, and it was due to the overwhelming acceptance of everyone in their various families. The pair had been together for a decade already. They'd had a domestic partnership in our state (CA) years ago, but it was overturned. This time they made a point to make a statement. It was a beautiful wedding and evoked this song in my head:
  5. Confession: That song (City Hall) always makes me cry without fail.
  6. Excel spreadsheets turn me on. Seriously... I have a spreadsheet fetish.
  7. I have no bookshelves with actual books on them in my house. We've gone full digital. I do have a few books I keep for sentimental value, but I only buy physical books any more if there's no digital version available. My husband is almost the same but he tends to buy graphic novels, which don't read so well in digital, unless the author has taken the step to make that possible... So we have volumes of graphic novels scattered around our house that he's in the process of reading. (Or that I'm in the process of reading... Has anyone read SAGA? I highly recommend it.)
  8. My husband and I have no kids... never planned to, but we're super excited when his best friend brings his four daughters to our house to swim in our pool. They're coming tomorrow (today... July 4th). Both his best friends have four kids... that's eight between them. Is it wrong that my guilt about not reproducing our phat brains is assuaged by knowing two of our favorite people have already replaced not only themselves but us as well?
  9. I'm glad Elena chose Damon. (I'm about a season behind on Vampire Diaries so I hope this isn't a spoiler for anyone.)
  10. I secretly watch porn for "research" for my erotica. It's rare, but necessary. And one of the perks of being an erotica writer :)

I'm a writer. I'm not sure what that really means at the moment. Maybe it means I want to publish a novel, which I do. Maybe it means I approach the creative endeavor of writing in a particular way. I've been writing fan fiction for a long time, but I've always considered it a means to an end. Now I think I've reached that end. I don't intend to write more fan fiction after the ones I've already started or promised. I believe in finishing what I've started, at the very least.

Beyond that, I believe in exploring my greatest fantasies and bringing them to life and making all of you love them every bit as much as I do. That's what writers do.

When I'm not writing (which is rare anymore), I'm also a rabid gamer, both tabletop and PC (I rebuild my gaming rig about every three years) as well as Xbox.

PS: My avatar image comes from an awesome Japanese artist who makes beautiful art. There is more where this one came from: www.smokymonkeys.com/. I would be ecstatic if there was a detailed RPG that included this artwork and wasn't just a reskinning of WoW (I am so over MMOs in general).

I'm a creepy cyber stalker...  (actually, I think you linked to your dA page once in /r/smutwriters and so I followed you then). :)

The space-time disruption which somehow led to me...now following you?...is incomprehensible to me. I shall now follow you (again, I'm certain of it), and hope there are no further disruptions.

I did notice, however, that you didn't officially tag me in your nefarious plan to take over... something... "Rule 4: Go to their page and inform them that they have been tagged by you" 

If I'm supposed to be your minion, you need to clue me in on these things, chica.

Hahahahaha :rofl:

No, you're absolutely right, I am a blatant and unrepentant rulebreaker. In truth I had family coming in for the 4th and needed to run around flailing to get the house clean, and took too much time getting the Journal up in the first place. I thought about trying to squeeze it in for a moment, then said, "Nah...that Jesse, she's a damn smart girl, she'll figure it out!" :lol:
