Today was a tolerable day, actually verging on good.

I was up late last night working on the Holmestice fanfic. Somehow I ended up with fewer words than before errands, but they're much better words, I think. I've also found a beta though I may still need a Brit-checker, and I was describing the set-up to her and was quite impressed by how well I'd worked out what was going on there, or what I hope to have going on by the end of it - what the conflict is, what the various characters' motivations are, etc. So I had a bit of a late start today.

On top of which, I received a drawing I'd commissioned from Shoot Bad Cabbies and I love it. A certain someone in the Sherlock fandom has a birthday coming up in the next few days, and as it happens to involve some of her favorite characters, I've decided to save it as a special treat. I'll be sharing it here on Saturday.

I've also finally decided to to and see the new X-Men movie. It's a Thursday, which means cheap(ish) tickets, I'm worn out but not bone-tired, I'm in Manhattan within walking distance of the old-timey cinema - red velvet, mosaic art on the wall, poofy chairs in a proper lobby.

In RL, I went to a third interview for the AmeriCorps position. I felt a little off because I was up later than usual. But I broke in my new shoes (basically, but not quite, like this; I also bought a pair of black velcro trainers). It was cool enough that I was able to wear a favorite lightweight sweater, and I got there early enough to read some of my fanfic on my cell phone in a public courtyard. I also bought honey from the farmers' market before, and a chrysanthemum to put through a buttonhole just because I wanted the smell of it after from the same market. The interview itself went reasonably well, I thought, and I left it feeling good. I was a little slow because of the sleep thing, but not horribly and I stayed a bit cheerful throughout. I think she liked me reasonably well. Only time will tell, of course.

Now I'm off to do more work on Holmestice, and then go to X-Men in a few hours. :-)

Glad you found a beta. Was going to offer, but still only about halfway through mine...

I really do want to work with you at some point. When you're not busy, when there's less of a deadline - I'd love to either collaborate or build off your feedback. (The offer is mutual, btw, should you ever be so inclined.)

Sounds like a great idea. I look forward to it.

    I don't send out cards anymore, but I was drooling over all the pop-up ones Amazon had and wondering if it might not be time to resume the tradition (I decided no).

    Not much help in the Hallmark…

    That's great! Happy Thanksgiving to you and thanks for the marching, musical cats. LOL
