Creativity! Stuff! Lateness!

I posted a creative thing. It needed to be off my hard drive. Naturally I decided that the optimum time for posting, in terms of maximising one's readership etc etc, was to post at 3am on Valentine's Day morning. As one does. Feh, sod it. It is 11,000 words of a crossover between Doctor Who and The X-Files based on an unclaimed prompt from a ficathon I didn't take part in three months ago. No, I have no idea why either.
HERE: The Flexible Concept of Tomorrow, or Five Times Donna Noble Remembers Meeting That Bloke With The Stupid Name (and One Time She Doesn't)

I suck at titles. I'm sure I used to be good at them. Feh, sod it, Part II

I have to be up in six hours to talk to an Irish bloke called Vincent about fascia boards and skimming. My life is the ne plus ultra of excitement. And on Sunday I have to go up north and visit my parents. I need to write about the many ways in which Thursday was tremendous but maybe tomorrow. It needs links and playlists and I am knackered.

Oh, one last thing: this is a total shot in the dark but does anyone have a song called I Perceive Things by a Brooklyn singer-songwriter called Ish Marquez? I don't think he's signed, and I certainly can't find it on any iTunes or paid-for site. There's a torrent of demos but obviously that's completely naughty and I would never do that and the torrent is buggered. It's just that it's a completely *wonderful* song and it burns that I can't get my grubby mitts on it except by sparking up the hideous MySpace.

I just started reading it but it's really good. Yay.

Uh, I'm so sorry. I hadn't forgot about this; it's just that this weekend is the first free time I'll have in a long time. I probably should have warned you about my unpredictability on the beta front.

I am looking forward to reading this sometime this weekend, though. I still love the idea to pieces.

No, no worries. I assumed you must be busy with life. Everyone I know is having a complete bugger at work at the moment. Also, you saved me from a horrible error, so I am totally grateful for that ;)

Ish Marquez sounded familiar and when I googled him, I knew why - he sang regularly at a bar just down the street from Mr. Landlord's. I may be down there tomorrow, I'll see if they have any of his stuff for sale.

Take Care

Oh, that would be amazing, thank you. I found him through MySpace links and it's impossible to find anything he's done over here. Let me know how it goes and I'll sort something out.

Are their enemies sleeping with the plesiosaurs?

Brilliant, beautifully realised and utterly, utterly readable. I shooed my 8 year old out of the room to swallow it it twice. You do know how to write them missus.

Thanks, I am glad it drew you in. Now what's this about you hauling something off your hard drive and having a butcher's at it?

I have just run past it with a chainsaw in anticipation of the kids going off to the grandparents on Saturday. I reckon, with some work, I could actually have summat done with it by next week.

I fear your ability to motivate with words.
