I feel like a bucket-O-poo...

Last night was our annual company party.  We always have it at Jillian's.  If you're not familiar with Jillian's it's like an adult "Chucky Cheese" or "Peter Piper's".  It's three stories, bowling alley on the bottom floor, but it's like a disco room, music playing, lights, you get the pictures.  Second floor is billiards and games and the bar, and third floor is the dance club.  Fun place I just tend to go a little heavy on the drink...hence my feeling like poo. 

Vodka was the snake that bit me.  Ouch.

I'm hoping to have pictures of our drunken debauchery tomorrow...ahh to get totally shit-faced with your co-workers.

So anyway, I wanted to just talk about something other than FIG and tell you it may be awhile before more FIG comes out (don't fret, it is not forgotten, I've got my layout for chapter 9 set).  I've got good reason tho, see...I think.  I've started an original story and for once I'm liking how it's turning out.  I've been working on the idea of writing an original story for months, hell it's probably been about a year now.  Well I never realized being creative and writing down your thoughts and ideas could be so bloody difficult!  But the past two weeks I've finally found my character's voice and I'm actually really happy with how it's going.  This character has been in my head since I was probably ten years old.  I'm not sure where he came from, but honestly, after writing him, I think he's a little part of me.  The way he thinks and feels are very much a part of me and when I'm writing him I completely lose myself.  It's mental.  He reminds me of Sirius sometimes, which I think is the reason I've always loved Sirius as a character...I always knew in the back of my head that my Daniel (he started out as Michael) was a non-magical Sirius.

I'm not sure if I'm going to post the story to my LJ, I'm going to wait and see how it goes and see what my "beta" says.
Who knows, it could be complete crap!

Oh, don't be silly. Of COURSE it is not complete crap! I am sure it will be excellent.

I mean, non-magical Sirius? Bring it on! And even better, HE'S STILL ALIVE! Now isn't THAT something to write about? An alive Sirius. And one that's around now.

Hm. I am babbling. I apologize. I have been sleep-deprived.

Ah, I'm sure your original story will be great, especially if the main character is even remotely like Sirius!

Just don't do a JKR on us.
