The (Cyber) Bag of Weasels

"About as much fun as a bag of weasels"...when I first saw this Irish adage, it made me think of the life of a writer: sometimes perilous, sometimes painful, certainly interesting. My paper journal has always been called "The Bag of Weasels." This is the Bag of Weasels' online home.

Well, the holiday season is upon us again, which feels a bit odd since my mind is still stuck back in September and the weather in Maryland has been in the '70s so perhaps more fitting to September! Alas, the official holiday season is less than a week from beginning, so I must get in my holiday post before it is too late.

Last year, an ambitious Dawn Felagund wrote stories and sent candy to people on her flist. I am afraid that I will not be able to be so ambitious this year. I don't know if I'm going to be able to make much candy (those of you whom I have promised candy will get some eventually, though it may arrive at a completely random time. Happy Arbor Day! Have some candy! I am teaching candymaking to my friend Tammy at some point, so whatever I make in the way of examples will probably be shipped out to friends since the best way to kick a candy habit, I've learned, is to take up making confections oneself! Which is good for my friends and assures that my butt will continue to fit in my new trousers.)

But, I would like to do something for my friends this holiday season. For one, if you would like a card, leave me your address, and I will send one your way. (If I have your updated address already, you'll be getting a card, so no need to ask. If you've moved since last Christmas, please leave me an update?) Comments are screened, and I will not un-screen any comments that have personal information in them. You may also email me at DawnFelagund@comcast.net.

Secondly, I would like to offer writing. Unfortunately, I'm not going to be able to manage full-length stories this year. I had twenty requests last year and barely made it--though it was a fun challenge and has made my portfolio quite fat. However, I would like to write drabble series for my friends. Many of you will be getting a drabble series, like it or not. ;) However, I am open to suggestions and requests of any nature (and even those of you who are new or quiet or don't have LJ accounts--please feel free to speak up and ask for something! Most of my favorite stories started as requests from friends and flisters.)

My hope is to post a drabble series each day through the month of December (with modifications to account for my holiday travel schedule). I'm open to nearly anything; however, I ask that requests be for either original writing or Silmarillion/Elf-based fanfic. Sorry, I don't do Star Trek or Harry Potter or Wheel of Fortune fanfic. Requests can be as broad or specific as you'd like; I do all ratings, both het and slash, so requests for pr0n are always honored here. ;)

So, in short: If you want a card, leave your address. If you want a drabble series, leave your request. Simple enough.

And I will eventually get to answering my comments, some of which are two weeks old. I had intentions of doing so tonight, but here it is after midnight, and Alex has a veterinary appointment tomorrow morning, so I'd best be getting my booty to bed.
