Dept. of Inarticulateness


I can't post - not about big things, nor about little things. F'list, I'm turning to you.

Ask me questions, and I'll answer them in posts. Ask me fannish questions, ask me about my life, about reporting, about my tastes in food or music, ask me the other answer to life, the universe, and everything (the one that isn't '42'), and I'll answer.

Or at least I'll do my best. And you'll have helped me get back into the posting habit.

A grateful kaffyr thanks you!

(And also thinks she should probably apologize if this seems pretty egocentric. So here's another idea. If you'd like, you could ask me for a fic. Name your characters, and some sort of setup - happy, sad, funny - and I'll try to write something. So, yeah, there's that option.)

Favourite food? Favourite recipe to make?

Favourite smell?

The last moment that made you stop and think "the world is beautiful"?

The last moment that made you sad?

Thanks! You and lilacsigil over on Dreamwidth both asked about foods, so you two got the first post!

Haha, coincidence!

*Shrugs* My mom does answers to questions posts all the time. Then again, she has a much larger following.

With that out of the way - question. Are you doing any freelancing right now? And are you doing any kind of fiction writing? (related question - was the write-in back in January helpful at all?)

Oh, good questions, and I can tell you that I'm about to get in touch with some folks on the North Shore to see if they'd be interested in making use of me. It's been so long since I freelanced that I'm actually a little uncertain of how to get started. But I can always ask Bob Seidenberg, since he's doing a lot of work back in Evanston with the Round Table. How did you get your freelance mojo working?

Still doing fic writing (working on an MCU/Who cross-over now.) And yes, the write-in helped me kickstart myself, so it was really helpful.)

How did you get your freelance mojo working?

An interesting question, especially in light of... recent developments. Most of the time, I just sent e-mails writing about my experience and asking if they're looking for freelancers. Sometimes it worked, sometimes *cough*Pioneer Press*cough* I got a polite rejection, sometimes I was ignored completely. With Journal & Topics papers, I responded to a Help Wanted freelancer ad on Craigslist. With Streetsblog Chicago I simply tweeted at their editor asking if I could freelance for him, he asked to see my transit-related clips and the rest is history. I mean, my plan right now is to e-mail Block Club Chicago and a few other places and hope for the best.

I wish I could offer something more helpful, but for me, it has been mostly "throwing a bunch of stuff at the wall and hope something sticks."

Sorry for the delay. Stomach flu in the house has proven to be a bear. I wanted you to know that your answer is very helpful. Thanks! And I hope you get some work from Block Club.

If you had a week just for you, no responsibilities, everything handled for you - what would you do with it?

If you had a familiar, what would it be?

What food can you not get ahold of that you wish you could make yourself?

These are great questions! I can answer your second questions pretty easily; the only animal I"m 100 percent at ease with is the cat - any cat. Mind you, I'm not sure about what attributes a familiar is supposed to have, and how the familiar is supposed to complement its human. It may be that the familiar is supposed to echo the human's own character, and I can't say for certain that my personal characteristics are catlike. I'm so apt to be nervous and anxious, perhaps my familiar would be ... a guinea pig?

The other two questions I'll have to ponder.

*hugs back*

Hmmm. How about a short little fic with Thirteen interacting with a cat or some sort of cat-ish creature? You can include her Companions or not, as you wish. I'm envisioning an interlude while the Doctor is on her way somewhere else.

I like this - it easily goes on my list; thanks!
