(no subject)

I've just amused myself by running what I've done of my watchersdiaries ficathon story through The Gender Genie (gacked from agilebrit this time around, although I had seen it before): the result was
Female Score: 5197
Male Score: 3824
The Gender Genie thinks the author of this passage is: female!

It's written from a female POV (Slayer!) so I suppose that's a good sign. Right?

I'm rather regretting having offered two stories for the ficathon. This one is going really well, but I'm not sure about the other. I've decided to make it a lot shorter than "The Cloak of Mist" is going to be, as otherwise I'm going to be tied up on this for far too long, and I'm not sure if anything will come of the project to co-write a story with desdemonaspace. Turning my vision into something coherent that I can pass on to her is proving to be remarkably hard.

My posting date for the watchersdiaries is to be February 11th. I plan to be finished with them well before then and get back to the WIPs. However, I fall into the category "mice and men" so my plans gang oft agley. We'll just have to see how it goes. There will be a new chapter of "Life in Shadow" on February 19th whatever happens.

Well, not whatever happens. There are many things that could prevent it; asteroid impacts, nuclear wars, terminal computer failure, supervolcanic eruptions; but I won't let common or garden distractions stop me.

There was a point to this when I started but I can't remember what it was. Oh, yes. Thanks to megan_peta, evilawyer, and zanthinegirl for your valuable assistance. Your thoughts have been a big help to me.
