Write me a story?

So real life has taken a turn for the worse... *glares at reality* After reading about some of things that other people have going on, I really feel guilty about complaining. I suppose everything is relative though.

The boyfriend and I were supposed to go on vacation this Thursday. We were heading to our cabin in Virgina for a week. Between graduate school and the two jobs, it's extremely hard for me to get away. Now because of his serious back problem and the need for him to find a new doctor, it's not going to happen. I don't blame him because he has to put his health first. I know I shouldn't whine about it, but I was looking forward to the break. I *needed* the break. But alas, I shall continue to march.

I've got stacks of cases sitting on my desk at work and lots of school work that I've let slide that needs attention so I suppose that's what I'll be doing over the holiday break. I'm not going to take any days off from work though. I've got a strange mental block when it comes to taking time off. If I'm not leaving town, I can't justify it in my mind. I've always been weird like that. Sure, I've got over two months of leave on the books, but god forbid I take a day off. I need to work on that. lol

So basically, will someone write me a story? A drabble? Anything?

I feel like writing, but I'm afraid I'll start killing off characters. I tend to do that when I need to vent. :)

If anyone is still reading this, thanks for listening.

*hugs*

I'm sorry. It's not nothing. A canceled vacation *is* a big deal. We *NEED* our vacations.

I hope your boyfriend's back is okay.

"Write you a story?"

Hmmmmm....

He got an appointment to see a new physician on December 4th. He seems hopeful so I'm happy about that.

We do need our vacations! I'm close to taking myself on vacation... I'm not too proud!

Sorry I can't write you anything, but you've got my sympathy. We never get enough vacations- or even mini-breaks/field trips to take a mental escape. And I'm so like you, I somehow find it hard to justify taking time unless I'm going to be elsewhere. We are so brainwashed!

Hang in there. Happy Thanksgiving at your casa.

Maybe someone far more talented will answer your call!

We HAVE been brainwashed! I never thought about it like that, but you're exactly right! I'm going to work on taking more time for myself. I'm not going to make any promises on how that's going to turn out...

I'm actually working at the hospital on Thanksgiving day. Yep, life of the party down here. lol I go in at 3:30am, but I get off at 12:00 so I'll have time to do something.

Thanks for listening and just being kind. That actually going a long way. :)

I'm elbows-deep in some other writing at the moment, and have holiday,work, and outside business stuff to attend to, but I really feel for you. :( I can't promise anything, but if all goes well I'll be posting another "Flowers" story before Turkey Day . . . not quite a personal fic, but at least it's new stuff on deck.

Do take a little time for yourself over the holiday, if you can. It's hard to do sometimes, but it really does help.

YAY for another story from you! Personally, I'd read your grocery list. That's how much I enjoy your writing so whatever you post will be just fine in my book.

I'm going to try to take some time for myself. Hopefully after classes end I'll take a few days and relax. I've got a couple stories I want to work on.

Thanks for listening. I appreciate it.

I can very much sympathize with the whole grad school and multiple jobs thing. I wanted to write something for you, and of course the first thing that came to mind was to have the characters express the same frustrations you talked about in this post. Thus I give you this. :-)

I hate that it was written thanks to nightrider's misfortune, but- *sweet!*

And strangely, not unlike an interaction I've been working out in an OC story where Ryan keeps barking 'Seth!' and of course Seth doesn't get it. *hee*

I did! And I forgot to let you know. *shakes head in wonder* I was *really* sleepy, last night, when I posted the story.

Anyway, it's called "Sit Down," and I was prompted to write it because of your request.

Unfortunately, I never bothered to *ask* you what kind of story you might like, so...

I hope it satisfies.

:)

p.s. Plus, it was, kind of, inspired by your amazing fic, "Alcohol, Curfew and Consequences." Which filled a fic-need of mine. And made me want to write my *own* version. :)

And you did your own version so well! I'm flattered that my story inspired you! That's one of the highest forms of praise you can give. :) Thanks for writing a story for me. I appreciate it so much! I left proper feedback on your page. :)

Sorry that you couldn't take your break!
Hope you'll be able to take a break in a few days/weeks (Christmas break, maybe?)

I'm leaning towards Christmas break because I'll be out of school as well. Let's all cross our fingers and pray. lol

Thanks for listening and being so kind. I appreciate it!

Rants are always okay. And this does suck- I can't imagine sustaining your schedule, so it's easy to convince 'moi' how much you need the break.

Stories, huh? *ponders* I can't start today, but perhaps tomorrow. Meanwhile, *hugs* for sure.

Look- a reason to be motivated and inspired to write! That would be a bonus for all of us and medicine for nightrider.

And I know I have to get to your ocitagain post that sort of addressed some of my "Snock." And I WILL comment on your amazing challenge fic for real. I'm so slow these days!

End of hijack. Take off.

I started a drabble but didn't get far. I'm sorry for the lose of vacation - I hope the BF is better soon.
I promise to try to find the time, etc to finish the drabble and then it'll be just for you, 'kay?

Take your time. :) God knows we all have real lives to contend with. I'm thinking about leaving mine. I wonder if anyone will notice. ;) Thanks again for listening.

I tried. And failed.

But I did find a story I never posted, so I will post that for you. Even though there's not much Ryan in it yet...hopefully it will kill a little time for you.

Hope you did/do get some downtime.

Killing off the odd character, not Ryan, is worryingly theraputic!
nightrider101
Nov. 25th, 2007 04:18 pm (UTC)
Eh, not really but that's okay. :)

I don't plan on doing a whole lot today.

I don't think I could ever kill Ryan. Well, I suppose I could...but where would be the fun in that? ;)
