But this past nine days has been insane for me - two galleys to do, all the play stuff, a novella that was due to my publisher two days ago that I still have to finish the last chapter on, house stuff (my kitchen sink is finally fixed, woo hoo!), and making sure my family can eat/has clean clothes. I did take some free time away from everything this weekend to play games with friends on Saturday night and with Alex during the day. I seriously needed the distraction. Because every time I think I have some free time to actually get on LJ or do something fandom-related, something else comes up that I have to take care of. Last night, it was discovering our PR person can't get the headshots done this week for the cast, so I spent two hours scrambling to find someone amongst people I know. Luckily, I got a friend to do it for ad space in the program in lieu of payment. She's only done natural lighting photography, but she's got a great eye, she's smart, and she'd love the experience. AND, most importantly, she can actually do it this week, lol.
To save my sanity, I've decided I can't play in fandom for a couple months. I have two fics I HAVE to write after this novella, so those have to have my creative juices. I don't have time to read online, which makes me sad. And I can't spare the time for Seasonal Spuffy this round. Hell, I haven't even had the time to pick up my Buffy rewatch yet. I'm just before all my favorite stuff in S5, too.
