Starting to slightly panic about my sekret santa fic for hlh_shortcuts. Deadline is Dec 10th, and I might lose internet access on Dec 1st (switching providers) so I really need to finish it but it's proving to be a right mardy bugger.

Have made in-roads on a Plan B fic in case Plan A fails to co-operate, so hopefully one of them will be finished in time.

In other news, I'm off to see Eddie Izzard again tonight so very excited about that, despite the truly abysmal weather.

*looks at date again* meep!

I've not done my hlh_shortcuts fic either!
With regards to having no net connection, the library is your friend and if you can upload the wip to a google doc before the switchover you'll be able to access in online without having to upload or download anything. I would have not survived with my sanity relatively intact without my net connection via the library last year.

And yay for Eddie!

Gotta love the library! Although Poole libraries are still a little parochial, so getting computer access isn't always easy, but it's definitely better than nothing!

Eddie was indeed yay! And I now have a shiny black Cake or Death mug! It's sitting on my shelf and Five has taken up residence in it *grin*

I still need about 4000 words to reach the minimum! And I have no idea what to write. I really want to write the Plan A fic because for once I've got someone I know really well, but I'm resigning myself to the possibilty I may have to abandon that idea completely. :(

You nearly made me die of fright there - 4000 words to reach minimum? Ack! Then I checked again and minimum is 500 words. Phew! I can do 500 words in a day easily if muses co-operate.

I saw 500 and assumed misprint because it was longer the previous two years, wasn't it? Oh well, at least I can breathe a sigh of relief :-)

aeron_lanart is right, word limit is 500:).

All I need is a couple of hours with clear head, but it's the end of the year - a bunch of other deadlines in the way:)
