A year after I first joined dreamwidth, this is my first attempt to actually crosspost! I'm emboldened by finally having managed to import all my LJ entries to DW -- if anyone else is getting repeated import failures, go here - http://www.livejournal.com/settings/?c=OldEncoding
- and set your encoding options to Western European (Windows). That did the trick for me.
Of course, now begins the much more difficult task of choosing which icons to bring over. With only 15 slots, now is when we find out just how much I really love my old fandoms....
On the LJ side of things, I finally purchased a rename token. I got my LJ in... 2002? And I've wanted to change the name since about 2003. So within the next day or two, marzilla is going to become corilannam. This will probably happen on Twitter, too.
It's not really streamlining my life, but I like to think of it that way.
My fannish energies have been going mostly into my reel_merlin story, which is due in... aw, man, let's not think about that.
It's based on last year's mega-apocalypse movie 2012
, which offers me one distinct advantage in terms of finishing. Should the deadline day arrive and I am not done? I can merely stop where I am and type in that old fannish standby: "And then the world blew up and they all died."
And I will be completely justified in the source material.
It also seems that another Merlin Big Bang is gearing up for over the summer. I think I'm going to give that another try, especially since the minimum word count is only 20K this time. And this time, I'll actually figure out the story before I start, instead of just trying to type several thousand random words in some kind of order.
I'm debating between trying to finish the one where Merlin goes to compete in a tournament of wizardry, or starting the one where Arthur is a personal trainer and Merlin becomes his (reluctant) pet project.
Okay, let's see if this works. *holds breath, clicks post*
ETA: It did not work. Let's try this again.Yes, I'm crossposting from Dreamwidth -- http://corilannam.dreamwidth.org/125249.html. people commented over there. Comment wherever you want!
