Just a bit of thoughts I had

I was just wondering, how everyone finds managing fic vs RL?

I massively struggle with this. I find I get sucked into fandom and disappear from life for days at a time, get my sleep patterns all ruined, find it difficult to do my day job, cook food, do the dishes. I get obsessed and I can't put it down. I'll start reading a fic and won't stop until it finishes or I physically have to. Or if I'm writing the same can happen.

And then it gets to a point where I have to break away from fandom just to get a grip back in RL. And then stay away from it for months at a time just to try and get things back on track.

So, how does everyone else manage to be so involved, so constant? Is there a trade off for things in RL or are you all just extremely good at time management?

Any thoughts would be appreciated :) 


It's been a while!

Wow, so it's been a while since I've posted on here.
A lot has happened. I lived in London for two years, but I've moved back to Australia due to visa issues.
So I can be a time travelling Aussie again, writing this entry from "the future" - it's already Valentine's Day here!
And hey guess what, I'm single on Valentine's Day again! Yay.
I had a nice comment a couple days ago that I read today where someone was asking about my WIP, Hope, and I thought that was really sweet. I haven't written anything in years, but I do have some already written additional content which I might read over, edit and consider posting, up to a certain sticking point which I need to fix. Harry and Draco have a certain conversation which I loved writing, and then suddenly realised they can't be having this conversation yet, because it doesn't make any sense -.-

Anyway, just wanted to post a little about what I've been up to. If we used to connect in fanfic world two years ago, give me a comment and say hey if you happen to see this!

Got a review on Fanfiction.net

Died of shock.

That is all. 

Calling all London fan girls haha

So, last night I got taken to this with a few girlfriends in London.

I feel like everyone on here who is in and around London has to go see it!!


It was absolutely hilarious, and a great night all round!

Do any of my LJ friends use LJ Talk?

Trying to decide if it's worth looking into and downloading a "client".
