yuletide reveals

Yuletide happened! I wasn't able to read as voraciously as I did last year, so I haven't collated enough data for a recs post as of now. But I was, unlike last year, able to write more than one fic. I also learned a lot about Senegalese animist beliefs and the perils of creating sock Tumblrs (not for the same fic).

A muse does not exist in isolation, especially in the age of social media.

Just wanted to drop by and thank you again for that extraordinary Worst Muse fic — I kept thinking it couldn't possibly get any better and then it did and it just *flails* there's a poem in there somewhere when all these feels settled down a bit more. By which I mean, in more coherent prose, it moved me to want to write poetry, and I think I will when I can get out of the interpretative dance of delight phase.

(Thank you. What an amazing gift of a fic. I'm still unstrung from my eloquence and ringing yet.)

ETA: also, did I meet you at con.txt the time before last via [personal profile] stultiloquentia? Your username here is oddly familiar...

Stulti and I are both Boston-based; let us know if you're ever in the area and up for dinner or something!

Given that I tend to tag my sense of humor 'punbad', 'visual puns' and/or 'success in humor lies', I'd say you nailed it beautifully. :o)
