Hi, luvs!

I just realized that it's close to my 10th anniversary here on LJ. I created this journal on October 24, 2006, made my first post on November 12th, and my first fic posting on November 21st (Announcement I: The Ready Room), introducing myself to the DC Comics community here on-line. Little did I know the friends I would make and the prolific writing in my future! Good times, good times. :)

I don't know if I'll come up with something for the anniversary, but I wanted to acknowledge it to all my friends here on my f-list, and who have stuck around when a lot of people took off for shinier baubles platforms. A big THANK YOU to all the people who have encouraged me during low points, celebrated with me in good times, and helped me with gifting me with paid accounts and extra icon userpics, which has really made life here more fun. :)

I've had a great time reading, writing, and hosting my Challenges over the years, too. The 2016 DCU Fic/Art Halloween Challenge is my next-to-last Challenge, as I'm seriously considering doing something special for Wonder Woman next year to commemorate her first ever live-action movie. That will be my grand final Challenge and how better to do it than with one of my all-time favorite characters? :) I'm pretty proud of the many Challenges I've hosted (Complete List here) and another big THANK YOU to all who contributed during these past ten years.

It's been a rainy morning with plenty of fog, but we need the rain after a summer of drought. The leaves are turning bright colors and my sister and I are going to the orchard tomorrow to get fresh apples (can't get any fresher!). Life is good. Enjoy your weekend, my friends! :)

Wow, you have hosted a LOT of challenges! Bravo for all you've done for fandom. I agree doing a Wonder Woman challenge next year will be the perfect way to top it off.

I know the feeling - that it's time to go off into the sunset. "Devotion" was probably my last fanzine. Dovya and I had so much fun doing it and we've gotten a good response, but it's harder and harder to sell zines these days, and even if MediaWest hadn't crashed so badly I really can't afford to travel as much now as I used to. And, money aside, it's more difficult for me. So my days as a zine publisher are over. Interestingly enough, I'm now doing a lot more writing, and I'm really enjoying being able to devote so much time to it. {{{{{{{hugs}}}}}}}} again and congrats again for all the hard work you've put in over the years.

Congratulations! There does seem to be fewer and fewer of us on LJ, so it's always nice to know that someone else is planning to stick around. :-)

Is there a reason you're going to stop doing challenges? You do them so well!
