Well. Is this thing on?

So, LJ roleplay ate my brain. Like, a lot. But I'm trying to get back into the swing of things, so here I am. Is anyone still around? What are you up to? Writing? Convention-going? Submitting your work? Let's get this party started again!

As for me, like I said, LJRP ate my brain, but I've completed two new stories, garnered my eighth Honorable Mention at Writers of the Future (along with a slew of other rejections and one acceptance at Stupefying Stories), and am working on a steampunk werewolf western.

I went to WorldCon in Chicago this year, along with World Horror (since that was right in my back yard in SLC). Next year I will be attending MisCon (BECAUSE JIM BUTCHER) and a writing retreat in Chattanooga put on by the good people who bring us Writing Excuses every Sunday.

So? How about you?

I'm still here, I'm still writing. It's my escapism.

Wow, here we are again! Cool! :-) Congrats on your honors and acceptance!

I've been writing fanfic sporadically -- especially Person of Interest fanfic -- and trying to give myself a kick in the pants to write more. Also having some nonfiction articles published, and trying to work on a nonfiction book.

Oh, and I went to a Christian writers' convention -- really not that much fun, except that I got to meet a few wonderful people. Too many earnest liberal navel-gazing Christian writers. :-) Also to a Charles Dickens bicentennial convention, which was TREMENDOUS fun! Hardly any navel-gazing at all, just lots of sightseeing and exhibits and performances and lectures all about my favorite novelist. Oh, and a big fight out of nowhere during a Q&A session, over the reliability of Dickens biographers. Good times. :-D

Hey. I'm doing NaNo right now. Have several books for sale. 2012 wasn't as good as 2011 for some reason, so I'm looking ahead to 2013.

Just joined Livejournal, but I'm glad to have discovered this group! I own conservativefiction.com, am involved in Liberty Island Magazine in some as-of-yet undefined role, and write lots of conservative leaning stuff in many genres, though my favorites are historical and disturbing fantasy. Right now I'm working on a book tentatively titled Skinwalkers and trying to wrangle writers together to start a conservative fiction movement - change the story, change the culture. Change the culture, change America BACK.

I'm looking forward to getting to know people here!
