Happy April

Hey guys, sorry I've been so quiet around LJ. Trying to use my free time to work on stuff like the list below, plus I just haven't been in the blogging mood. Nothing bad; I like to think of it as recharging time.

Usually I really love April Fools Day, but it works out best for general silliness, and the jokes aimed at actually fooling people seem to have gotten out of hand these past few years and imploded, so yesterday was a bit of a snooze. I wrote something ridiculous for Ao3, but it was between the hours of sentience and the hours of creativity derived from sleep deprivation, so...soon to be forgotten and possibly deleted.

Looking forward to more show and tell this month. Anyway, here's my progress from March.

Complete a fic of any length for the GotG fandom: Started posting it, even. Shouldn't be a problem to finish by the end of the year.

Original fiction:
Clean up and post/publish a couple poems: I...actually remember that I was cleaning up "Prayer for My Friends" from wherever I last posted it, but now I don't remember what I did with it.

Sketch the main characters from the two comics: Managed four of these, posted here, here, here, and here. These are technically the two main characters from each comic; I may keep going with other characters because I wouldn't say I didn't get anything out of it, but I'm also crossing it off.
Use my sewing machine: Bought fabric for my apron.


Finish a book a month: Unicorn Western by Sean Platt and Johnny B. Truant. I realized I wasn't going to finish the Dostoevsky by the end of the month, so I reached for something short and light to meet my quota. The hype around this one was aimed entirely at the wacky-zany-outrageous genre combo, and to be honest, there isn't much else to say about it. If you like Westerns and/or unicorns, go for it. I probably won't bother with the sequels.
Finish the Civil War event before the movie: I'm still not done with it! So many comics! Still enjoying it though.
Read one poem every night before going to sleep: The habit is pretty much established now, but I skip more nights than I'd like, just due to tiredness. Close to halfway finished with the complete works of Robert Frost.


Catch up on Game of Thrones: Rewatched the first season. I know, I gotta blog about this stuff!

Nothing this month.
