As I clear the dust from my blog, I realize it has been a while. What all have I missed?

TV-Wise: Been watching all my shows.

Once - I so called spoilers ).

Vampire Diaries - Spoilers )

I need to catch up on Arrow.

The Voice is coming back, which makes me a very, very happy girl. Love The Voice. I think it's my favorite talent show of them all.

I still love Smash, but I don't think anybody else does.

Oh, and Doctor Who starts back up at the end of the month.

What TV things are making you happy?

Writing-Wise: Quick, look over there! *Runs away* Okay, so I've been making notes on WHITE SPIRIT. All of my beta readers have sent their comments so I need to incorporate all of their notes in with mine. And then the real work begins. So much revising, but I'm going to make this story work.

Job-Wise: Haven't found a full-time permanent position yet, but I've put in some promising applications.

How is it going in your neck of the woods?

A) Because I am an awards show junkie, I missed this past week's OUAT. I plan to catch up with it this Friday.

2) Speaking of the Golden Globes, who else watched it? Loved Tina Fey and Amy Poehler as the hosts. Grumpy cat!Tommy Lee Jones was fun. Also, yay, Adele, for beating Taylor Swift. Rock! And I'm so happy for Ben Affleck for winning Best Director and Best Picture - Drama.

Of course, I squeed with all the Les Miz wins. Yay!!!

C) I have a job interview tomorrow for one of the Librarian positions I applied for. Wish me luck!

4) I don't think I have a last thing. Just wanted to even out the list. :)

1) My Les Miz: 25th Anniversary Concert came today. I know what I'll be watching tonight.

2) No word on the full-time librarian position yet. I continue to wait.

3) Thoughts on OUAT )

4) Weekly update on OF THE SEA coming soon.

5) The Golden Globes will be on this Sunday. Who's going to watch it with me? :)

How is your day going?

After spending my weekend recovering from a cold, I'm back to my normal self. I still have a lingering cough, but I'm doing good.

I'm also getting back into the writing routine. I haven't touched OF THE SEA for a week so I have to remember where I left off. I think one character sliced another's throat.

I also dipped my toes back into fanfic. I signed up for the OUAT Exchange and am writing a fic for it. It's a rough draft right now and needs some more work, but I certainly wouldn't mind having a beta look over it. I can't tell you what characters its about since the fics will be anonymous until January 7, but I'd welcome the help. Any takers?

Speaking of OUAT, It's owning my soul )

And now for a writing meme I stole from [personal profile] medie: You take your latest WIP and find an instance of the word look and share it with everyone.

Your first glimpse at OF THE SEA - unedited )

As I sit here, the last chapter of White Spirit is staring at me. Unfortunately, with all the changes I've made, it's going to have to be rewritten from scratch. *Sigh* The task feels daunting, but I think I can handle it. I'm at the point where I'm just ready for this to be finished. My new shiny keeps beckoning from its notebook.

I also think I may have a job. I was asked to interview for a temporary part-time library assistant position. The temp part seems to mean I might move from branch to branch throughout the system so there's not an official ending date. But this is a foot in the door and might lead to that elusive librarian position I've been dreaming of.

In the world of TV, all my shows continue to rock my socks. I haven't seen this week's Revolution yet (I'm still mad at them for last week), but I'm caught up on everything else.

Grimm )

Once Upon a Time )

Vampire Diaries )

So, are any of you guys watching?

Things are starting to happen with my library career. I volunteer at the local library, and my first day was Monday. I think it went really well. I was back in the stacks - pulling holds and scanning books. It felt good...really good. I've missed being in the library.

You see, I worked at a library in South Carolina for six years. Loved it so much I earned my master's degree. Then, my husband, The Bearded One, accepted a wonderful job at Duke University. So, we packed up and moved. Sadly, I haven't been able to find a job as quick, but I keep looking.

And now I think things are starting to happen.

On the writing front, I'm on page 172 out of 228 on the revisions. This version is cleaner than the last one, but I know there are still some inconsistencies. I'm going to need a beta reader or two if anyone is up for it.

Finally, who here watches Once Upon a Time or Revolution? I need to talk about them.

OUAT spoilers ahead )

Revolution )
