Subject: The prodigal returns - sort of.
I've had a couple of people email me to make sure I was still alive, and yes, I am. I think. :)
But nobody's heard from me in forever because ...
I've been writing a novel (more on that later)
My daughter started high school (Oh, the angst)
I bought a house (we're watching them build it right across the street. Cool)
I'm packing (because moving is always fun, right?)
I'm cleaning (because landlords get cranky if you leave too many dust bunnies behind)
Did I mention I've written a novel? Okay, so it's a fan novel (I know, nothing to get too excited about), but still, it's a novel. It'll only ever be read by maybe a dozen people because it's for the Beauty and the Beast tv show - which only ran for 2 1/2 seasons 20 years go. But it's easily the longest, most complicated work I've ever attempted. And the really cool thing? I'm working with a professional editor! Although I think she's starting to worry about my sanity because every time she tears apart a scene I thank her. :)
Enough about me. I've heard from a few people asking about a holiday ficathon. I'm certainly willing to organize and run one if there are enough authors out there who are interested in participating. I don't know that I'll have time to write (ever tried to edit a novel?), but I'm certainly willing to handle the organizational end of things.
So can we have a show of hands? How many people might be interested in writing for a holiday ficathon?

- I'm in! The first three were great. (NT) -- janlaw, 20:49:09 10/01/07 Mon
- Oh I SO want to do one. But I don't know if you've forgiven me for flaking out on you in the last one. (NT) -- Cece, 21:16:37 10/01/07 Mon
- Depending on length expectations, I would tentatively like to play! (NT) -- lska, 22:06:19 10/01/07 Mon
- Count me in! (NT) -- lsa, 22:19:49 10/01/07 Mon
- I'm in, but do we have to wait for the holidays? Can we do a Halloween ficathon? LOL (NT) -- Theresa, 22:40:34 10/01/07 Mon
- I might be able to manage a ficathon story. I'd certainly like to try. (NT) -- Ann, 23:36:13 10/01/07 Mon
- I'm in! (NT) -- Colie, 00:28:40 10/02/07 Tue
- I'd love to participate! (though I'm reserving the right to back out if the deadline falls around the time of a big test...) (NT) -- Staz, 03:22:40 10/02/07 Tue
- I'd love to say I'm in, but since I dropped the ball not once but TWICE on ficathon stories, perhaps I should demure. How about it I wait and maybe pick up an orphan prompt after the deadline if I think I'll actually have time to write? (NT) -- lobsterdoc, 05:24:15 10/02/07 Tue
- I know I haven't been around in awhile, but I'd love to do another Ficathon! Count me in. A quick update... -- Hollyjp, 13:12:26 10/02/07 Tue
- yes, count me in. need to get in the holiday spirit (NT) -- jerseygirl353, 16:28:11 10/02/07 Tue
- I'm willing to give it a try if life isn't too crazy. (NT) -- doc, 19:59:59 10/03/07 Wed
- I'm interested, I think it would be a challange to be given a few choices, also known as prompts. Opening it up to everyone for giving prompts allows those who have great ideas but may not be able---for whatever reason--to participate in the ficathon. (NT) -- Karen Joy, 02:07:15 10/04/07 Thu
- I'd like to throw my name in the hat, if possible. (NT) -- keru, 02:52:24 10/04/07 Thu
- I might be able to throw my hat in the ring this time too Pixie! Thnx so much for doing all this when you're so busy! (NT) -- Gibson, 15:46:46 10/04/07 Thu
- I had lots of fun with the first three ficathons. I'm interested in doing another one. (NT) -- Deemus, 17:34:38 10/04/07 Thu
