[livejournal.com profile] darandkerry asked: I know your mom is a nurse. So, did you ever consider working in the medical field in any capacity?


yes, and no. no, i never once considered following in my mother's brave footsteps and working the practical side of medicine... i have no stomach for it.

but, for a very brief time, i explored the idea of becoming a psychologist or a psychiatrist... i've always been told that i'm a good listener, and a family member encouraged me to see if i could make a living at it... needless to say, that was definitely not my thing.

though i did explore it. in high school, i was a peer counselor, which included taking some classes in psychology, but beyond that, i get too close to those i'm supposed to be impartially counseling... i'm too emotional, too empathetic to keep a professional distance... so i write. and i make jewelry :)

but my mother? she's one of my heroes, because she works hard, every day, giving tirelessly of her heart and soul so that her patients will heal.

Comment to this post and I'll give you a letter. In your journal, list 10 of your favorite songs that begin with that letter. Then, post in your own, if you see fit.

Sometimes it's ok to pimp yourself out. Post a list of the top five favorite fics you've written, regardless of fandom or the reason you love them. This isn't about the BEST things you've written, but what you LOVE most.

okay, first of all i gotta set a moment and think about the stories because honestly, i often forget what i wrote in a story LOL

hm. i s'pose the first one should be Banshee's Honor (web version: http://www.geocities.com/shaych3/bh01.htm) because it forced me to write out of my comfort zone (fanfiction) and because after years of sweat and heartache, it got published :D

next we'll take a trek down memory lane and go with Moral Dilemma (http://www.geocities.com/shaych3/morald.htm) since it was the first ever fanfic i wrote.

and to accompany that, The Anti Uber, Uber Xena Story (http://www.geocities.com/shaych3/antiuber.htm) and its mate, Thump or Hump: Not a Sequel to the Anti Uber, Uber Xena Story (http://www.geocities.com/shaych3/thump.htm) because they were an absolute hoot to plot (what plot?) and write :D

trekking over to the Buffyverse, Sometimes Angels Fall (http://www.geocities.com/shaych3/saf.htm) because it was the first time i actively sought to write angst with a happy ending, and it worked and people loved it :)

annnnnnnnnnnnd rounding out, RIFTU or Resurrection is for the Unbelievers (http://www.geocities.com/shaych3/riftu01.htm), because you just KNEW i wouldn't make a list without this monster :) i had so much fun playing with these characters and sometimes i secretly wish that i'd saved the story idea for original characters... because it really was that fun to play around with ... and i did start a sequel but got distracted. who knows, maybe i'll unearth it someday :)

there are of course, more stories that i've written and loved... but these were exemplary. currently, i'm about 130 pages into what may well be #6 on this list... it's another story set in the same land as Banshee, but with characters who are making me hone my writer's chops :)

Ground Rules: Name your Top 20 List Of Lust, in no particular order. Your neighbor or grade school teacher doesn't count. Neither does Angelina Jolie, as she is automatically assumed to be on the list of any human being with a pulse. The list can be male, female or mixed. They can be real life celebrities, or characters in a movie or TV show. Tag 5 people on your flist to do this meme.

I think I'll follow along and do fictional characters too... no stalkers here ;)

1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions.
5. Don't search around and look for the coolest book you can find. Do what's actually next to you.

"In the Eight Trigrams Battle Formation, which he signaled by languidly waving his white feather fan."

"The Story of the Stone" by Barry Hughart

(I HIGHLY reccommend this author to anyone who enjoys Chinese mythology with a fantasy twist... Bridge of Birds, The Story of the Stone and Eight Skilled Gentlemen are some of the best books I've ever read and I go back to them again and again just to immerse myself in the sheer richness of their text.)

nicked from a couple of users.

1. Gabriel whatever his last name was from Beauty and the Beast. Thanks for ruining my favorite show as a teenager. *bitchslap*

2. Warren Meers. Annoying clod. *uppercutbodyblowbodyblow*

3. Milan Zergin. Prosecuting the man who raped your sister is not an excuse to beat a woman half to death. Rot.in.hell. *haymaker*

4. Joxer from Xena. Everytime they turned around, there he was. I'm surprised neither Xena or Gabrielle smacked this doofus upside the head. Sheesh. Give the ladies some alone time, will ya? *smacksmack*

5. Carver from law and order: ci. I always thought that the prosecutor was supposed to support the detectives who schlup all over the city in the pursuit of justice. Fracktard. Take your oh so smooth voice and go suck helium. *slapslap*

and there you have it. there's more, i'm sure... i didn't bother to go into characters from books that i, at one time or another, wanted to strangle til they gagged because most of them did actually get what was coming to them... on the other hand without these characters, the characters we love wouldn't have anyone to bitch about/fight/destroy... LOL
