I've just been quiet. Mostly because I've been working on a fic that when I planned it, was not going to be as long as it is and I'm still not done with it.
Also, because I've learned that I can't handle several fics at once, the other seven stories that I should be editing, rewriting, and just plain writing have been kicked to the backburner hard.
I was also working, which is good as money supply was dwindling fast. My boss said I did a really good job and because they liked me, I'm going to work there next week too. It's at a law office and it's a great experience - much better than my old job and though I don't have a steady job now, I am making more money just by temping for a couple of days.
I'm currently re-reading OotP, which I am enjoying muchly.
