I'm back! Heh.

We had an ice storm, starting Thursday night. Fortunately, not a killer storm like we had way back in 2007, which destroyed trees and took the power down for almost a week. We just got a sort of glazing, this time around, and the streets are basically clear, and the power only went out a couple times, briefly, over night.

No damage this year, so glad! )


Now on to the challenge! Not as interesting a one, to me, as the others, but....

In your own space, set some goals for the coming year. They can be fannish or not, public or private.

I am definitely setting the goal of *finishing* my space AU, Yesternight. My gods, I can't believe how long I've been writing it. I'm *so close*, but as usual, lately, I seem to seize up at the penultimate moment. So frustrating! I hope to finish it before my birthday, in April - long before! And I really, really want to write more in general this year.

Personally - I need to get up and move. I am getting older, and exercise needs to be a regular thing for me. It's just very hard to motivate myself when it's just *me*. I can't afford a gym membership (though I'm looking into it), and I know if i were paying for that sort of thing, I'd use it, because - paying! So we shall see. But i really want that to be my personal 'thing' this year.

And there we go. Stay warm out there, folks - especially my Canadian flisties - seems like you guys are getting deep-frozen!

[livejournal.com profile] roxymissrose did it, and I replied in comments, and it seemed so fitting, so....

Grab the book nearest you, turn to page 117. The second sentence will be your life for 2017.

I traveled with my pack and my own following

Aeschylus - The Libation Bearers
Spoken by Orestes to Clytaemestra

It's my dad's copy, that he used in college when he came home after the war and was learning to be an anesthetist. I've been reading it over, just lately, really enjoying the language.
