I won art from [livejournal.com profile] twisted_slinky in [livejournal.com profile] spn_bigpretzel's Hurricane Sandy Relief Auction. I asked her if she'd do some for the second story I ever wrote, a Buffy/Supernatural crossover called Take the Long Way Home. She did TWO pieces for me and they're both awesome. I also owe her so much for giving me such great feedback when I was writing that story, because it is so terrifying when you first start posting and I had NO IDEA what I was doing.  A little support goes a long way, so thank you :D

Obviously, giving to worthy charities like disaster relief is extremely important, but as far as the fandom family goes, I think we all (myself included) need to do a better job in the 'giving feedback' department in the coming year.  Personally, I'm often very tied up in writing my own stuff and miss out on a lot of great fic. I need to take more time to enjoy reading again! 

If you're one of those that is afraid to leave reviews and doesn't know what to say, trust me, 99% of us authors are just regular people.  We're not sitting in some French cafe wearing a beret, sipping some fancy coffee, and chain smoking while we finish our "masterpiece".  We're much more likely to be doing the laundry and (God help me) trying to clean out whatever it was that was under the microwave *is ashamed*.  Point being, we're not that scary.  Anyway.... Check out my pretties!!!

LOL! I have never worn a beret and if I am anywhere near a cigarette, you might as well hit me in the head with a sledge hammer. It would have the same effect. I feel the same way about my job. If people saw some of the things I did at work, the title "Director" would not seem so glamorous.

That art is amazing.And it reminds me I need to go read part II of your story from the other day...

I can't get anywhere near smoke either as well. On second thought though, I should purchase a beret to clean house in. I think the job of scooping the litterbox would seem so much more deep and layered if I had a beret on... *ponders*

I look good with a beret and I love coffee, I would enjoy that.
And yes, nice art!

I'm drinking coffee now, but hats never look good on me :( I'm probably lucky I didn't live in the 19th century, I'd look ridiculous and I'd pass out all the time. The back of my wedding dress was a corset. OMFG! Pretty, but now I understand why women were considered such wilting flowers in those days :P
