      2016

      So, despite all the bad in the world in 2016 (and there's lots), I had some good things happen to me this year. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia back in March which, on the one hand, sucks because now I have this nifty lifelong chronic pain condition. But, after months of waiting for a diagnosis, finally having one and having a method of treatment that keeps symptoms under control is definitely a good thing.


      I also got into the University of Rhode Island's PhD, which was by far my top choice, with a full graduate teaching assistantship--and I got a 4.0 my first semester! I also got to move to Rhode Island, which is both a place where I really wanted to live and a thousand times better than being in Arkansas.


      My first book, Queen of Pentacles, came out in August. I also had 30 publications this year, and passed my 50th publication of all time.


      And, in September, TJ and I decided to have a baby, so this is also the year that I conceived my first child which has been an experience--ups and downs, for sure (ups: spiritual/instinctive connection to my kid from day one; downs: morning sickness; etc.), but I put that in the win category.


      I also have some book manuscripts I finished this year, and one that I'm currently writing that I'm really excited about.

      2017

      Which brings me to 2017. First off, I'm really excited for tomorrow night. For New Year's Eve TJ and I carry on my mother's tradition of doing frozen appetizers for dinner. We picked up mozzarella sitcks, pigs in blankets, pizza bagels, and taquitos (with the hopes that I can tolerate most of those). I might see, too, if we can find the Times Square special for free online. 


      I'm going to hear back from a publisher about Devils in the Valley supposedly by March, so I'm hoping really, really hard that it gets picked up.


      I'm also planning to send my new poetry collection and my short story collection both out to some publishers to see if I can get those picked up.


      I'm planning to finish my WIP YA novel, which has a bi main character and a lesbian love interest disabled with fibromyalgia, set in a school that was born out of the darker ideas of fairy tales. I really have a lot of faith in this book, both in its concept and in its ability to draw agent interest.


      Then, while I'm editing that and sending it to agents, I'm going to return to the first draft of an adult fantasy based on a group of goddesses (with more queer romance, because fuck it I can).


      And I'll be continuing to work on some baby/motherhood-centric poems. I don't know that I'll finish that collection next year, but I'll work on it some.


      All of this, of course, has to work around the fact that I'm having a kid in June 2017. I imagine towards the end of my third trimester and then shortly after I give birth there might not be a lot of writing happening. Exhaustion, new baby, etc. etc. From what I've heard of people's plans, I think we're going to have a lot of visitors next year, especially because of the impending child. (This is the first grandchild/great-grandchild on both sides, as TJ and I are the oldest. So it's an especially big deal in our families.) As a side note, I'm ridiculously excited for the Baby Heffers' first Christmas.


      And, of course, I'll be teaching and taking PhD classes in the spring and fall semesters. I only have three more semesters of coursework--Spring and Fall 2017 and Spring 2018--then I spend a year taking comps (tests), and then the year or two after that I just work on my dissertation--all while teaching, of course.


      So yeah. It's been a big year for me, and next year is going to be even bigger.

      That's right! The Rooster Teeth Community will soon have a new tiny community member. As of today (Christmas) I'm 14 weeks along with my and TJ's baby. Current estimation of my due date is June 25th, 2017. It's been really hard to keep quiet, especially when Lindsay and Micheal announced theirs on Extra Life. I really wanted to tweet at Lindsay "We're only a week apart!" But alas, we wanted to wait until the second trimester, and until after we told my family on Thanksgiving and TJ's on Christmas Eve. But now we can make the news public--FINALLY! I'm so excited. I keep thinking about how this is my last Christmas without a kid to wake up to. I really love this little guy or gal inside of me already.

      Buffy_christmas_still.jpg



      So I was thinking today about how I wish I could get more people Christmas gifts, but I just don't have the money right now. So I thought I'd try something a little different. I write things. A lot of those things are available online. Think of this as a sort of a White Elephant Gift kind of deal. Below, I'll describe certain stories, essays, and poems that are available online. Look over them and see which description catches your interest. Comment with the description, and I'll reply with the link to the piece that I've written. I know it's not much, but it is something that I can share with you during the holidays, and it's all stuff that I've spent a lot of time on. Okay! Here we go!

      Fiction
      * A seance. Witchiness. Mystery.

      * Science fiction. Genetic engineering. Sabotage.

      * Queer women. Growing distance. Confusing signals.

      * Dead boyfriend. Runaway girlfriend. Roadtrip.

      * Blood. Disturbing calm. Very short.

      * Bad mother/daughter relationship. Strange men. Dark.

      * Car crash. Secrets. Short.

      * Pregnancy. Gardening. Sisters.

      * Following a career passion. Taking a relationship to the next level.

      * Sister tension. Spousal tension. Surrogate.


      Poetry

      * Prose poetry (9)

      * Queer (3)

      * Fibromyalgia (5)

      * Female identity (4)


      Creative Nonfiction

      * Gender expectations.

      * Community. Rooster Teeth. Forming friendships.

      * Lyric essay. Economic stress.

      * Lyric essay. Mental illness.

      * Lyric essay. Planning for the future.


      Take your pick! :)

      What is the book that, when you think back to your childhood, immediately comes to mind?

      For me, it's Charlotte's Web. After that, it's probably Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, then Stella Luna, and Verdi.

      I've also started watching Gilmore Girls for the first time ever a few days ago, as a way to keep myself from going crazy with PhD work.

      14369904_10153957516461270_1846215779853

      I've been swamped with PhD reading and proposed an article to a magazine on bisexuality and Buffy that I hope gets picked up. I've been working, too, on my fibromyalgia memoir and my queer YA novel. And now, I'm gonna go and sip my cappuccino and maybe kick some more critical theory ass.

      Lots of stuff going on. I know it's been a little bit since an update.

      - Attended Graduate Teaching Assistant training last week
      - Taught my first URI class yesterday
      - Watched the entirety of The Guild on Netflix within a 24 hour period last weekend
      - Am reading a million things (Madame Bovary, Ink Mage, the Norton Anthology of Theory and Criticism)
      - Am writing a million things (queer YA novel, fibro memoir, random short things, as well as subbing around a short story collection and a picture book and a second poetry collection)
      - Have my first class as a PhD student tomorrow
      - Came back on here after a couple of very, very busy days to 9 notifications, including an unnecessary/unkind message...

      tumblr_inline_mhdggtFNDs1ql4nrq.gif

      Tl;dr: Things are going really well. I'm happy where I am and I'm happy with the work I'm doing. How are all y'all anyway?

      I also found this really spot-on passage in Felicia Day's "You're Never Weird on the Internet [almost]" which reminded me of you guys:

      "That early community taught me how wonderful it is to connect with like-minded people. No matter how lonely and isolated and starved for connection you are, there's always the possibility in the online world that you can find a place to be accepted, or discover a friendship that's started with the smallest of interests but could last a lifetime. Your qualification for finding a place to belong is enthusiasm and passion, and I think that's a beautiful thing."

      Hey Audrey, I’ve been running a little personal project. Nothing too complicated, I’ve just been leaving a few kind words on people’s walls in the hopes that it makes them smile, my way of heling people I guess. Today, it’s your turn.

      It’s people like you that make this community special. You are an inspiration, so kind, smart and amazing. Don’t ever change.

        It's nothing on the grand scale of things (compared to things like you or Ailsa do) but sometimes a subtle whisper can do just as much good as a grand announcement and I want to help people, even if its only for a little while.

      I can't look at my homepage because your journal is at the top and I'm not there yet! (I stopped watching at the end of Season 7 because I was super pissed at Ted running away with Victoria and finding out for sure Barney and Robin ended up together just because of the massive amounts of back-and-forth bullshit it confirmed within the storyline. I decided I wasn't going to watch again until they were done...so when I found out last week that tonight was the finale I started again...but from the beginning for a refresher. I'm in 7.05 now...so your journal's existence shall haunt me for a few days more....

        I apparently accidentally hit "Submit" when I was trying to click around somewhere in the message--the second one is how it should have finished. Nevermind. Apparently the first took the edit but then also took the delete command. I really want the site to be consistent about when and how it doesn't work.

        Exactly. She's just a backstory uterus. In the story of Ted's life she's just the chick who gave him Luke and Penny and died in a timely enough manner to allow him some good years with the love of his life, Robin. Thanks, Tracy! Way to die on time and not waste all of Ted's life!

        And it almost makes this sick sense out of why she's "the mother" and not named until the final episode: Contextualized this way, she's just the mother of his kids. Who she is otherwise is inconsequential.

      • capnbirdman Likes Stars

        3 years ago

        Precisely. Someone else brought up a good point: what would have happened if the mother had lived? Like...what if she didn't get sick and die after 10 years together? What if it had be 20? Or 30? At what point does Ted no longer go after Robin? Where is the tipping point? How long would Ted have to have been with Tracy for her to no longer count solely as a loveable distraction and functioning uterus so Ted can get a couple kids while waiting for Robin to settle down? At what point does she become more than just the mother of his children and become the love of his life? That ending reveals Ted as a despicable person and makes the entire show unwatchable. He's not just an unreliable narrator from time-to-time due to memory loss and censorship issues now. The whole story is cast in the light of him being an obsessive, unforgivable narrator. They didn't just ruin an episode. They rewrote and ruined the whole series with it.

        Yeah, I agree. Overall they just undid way too much of the character development. The Ted/Robin ending as the frame just was the most offensive part to me. Even the mother getting sick--even the mother dying--could have been salvaged because then this is Ted's sweet tribute to the love of his life. Framed this way, it's Ted still obsessing over Robin. Who knows if he ever stopped? Then how much did he love Tracy, really? Why wasn't Robin the mother other than the writers wrote themselves into a hole? Why have the mother as a character at all if this was what was going to happen? Etc. etc.

      • capnbirdman Likes Stars

        3 years ago

        Yeah, I clicked the link in the person's comment above my own and found that out. For me, even the last five minutes being gone wouldn't fully change it. They should never have broken up Barney and Robin for fake reasons that didn't make sense within the story or real life if they were going to spend six years building up to it. There's no fixing it. Maybe people are right and I should've stopped watching after Season 3.

        There was an alternative ending somewhere where it ended with them meeting and Ted saying "and that's how I met your mother" without the last 5 minutes of shit, but it's been taken down because of copyright claims.

        I haven't actually seen the finale yet--can't until tomorrow. But Twitter spoiled it for me.

        I stopped watching last season, watched this one and... Well, you'll know when you catch up. smiley3.gif
