Most days, it's really nice to cycle to and from work. I listen to my new favourite podcast "Harry Potter and the Sacred Text" (have you listened to it yet?) on Spotify, enjoy a bit of fresh air (as much as air can be fresh next to a busy street) and can leave work behind.

Today, however, there was hail. HAIL/. And, just for the record, I did not enjoy getting hit on the cheek and on my lip, no matter how little those stupid hailstones were.

This weekend is busy - like they all are, kind of - but in a good way. Yesterday, we went to a flea market another town over and then had dinner & drinks with friends, today some other friends are coming over so we can finally finish season 5 of Game of Thrones (yes, I know, we're behind).

The new job is working out well and, though my commute is only a third of what it used to be and I have more "free" time on my hands, I barely have the energy to write or read. I do way more writing in my new job (press releases and e-mails, mainly), so I'm still getting used to this sapping off my creative juices.

I've also noted that my online behaviour has changed, what with mobile devices and everything. A couple of years ago, I had a really old TV and so, in order to watch Netflix etc., I had to switch on my computer. The moment I got home, I opened my laptop and spent the evening surfing, writing and watching TV. When I come home now, I a) have a boyfriend that I talk to (vs. living alone before) b) have a proper TV and a connected PS4 that gives me Netflix and Amazon on a big screen. And I rarely switch on the computer anymore (because I also game on the PS4). It's not only changed my usage of devices, but also how often I actually post on my journal and how often I write. To me, that feels strange. I wish there was a proper (Android) app that would allow me to post and comment here - it would make my appearances more frequent, I suspect. At the same time, I will have to finally kick myself in the butt to get back my writing groove.

Does anyone of you have any tips how to get back into writing more? And have you experienced a shift in your use of devices as well?

Okay, wow, hello. Five years, no post. That must be a record, or something. Now that it looks like DW is getting more attractive by the minute (especially what with LJ being rather sucky), I thought I could start and post something. Looks better than having adventdrabbles from 2012 on the top of the page.

Whew.

Hiya all!

I know I've been absent (lost my password, busy with the new job, tons of stuff happening, got heavy-duty writer's block, and I just poured water over my laptop - hoping it will recover), but now that I've finally managed to log back onto LJ I see stuff about DW on my feed. What's happening? Are we all moving to Dreamwidth?

Also, sorry for going totally incommunicado over the last weeks.

I'll make it short. :)

- I'm good, just in sort of a writing-rut ATM
- I finally got a new job! Starting at the beginning of March, which is perfect. I'll be back at working at a PR agency again and I'm very much looking forward to that. Plus, the office isn't that far away, meaning I can ride my bike to work (vs. the previous commute via tram/metro/train where I contracted every damn cold that people had to offer). Yay!
- Boyfriend is doing better, health/back-wise. Things are almost back to normal.
- I just signed up for [livejournal.com profile] snape_potter's Snarry A Thon! <3

You might have heard about what happened in Berlin - just to let you guys know, I'm okay. I don't live in Berlin and my friends that do are all fine.

As one of them put it: It seems like the year is ending as awful as it began.

Sorry for the delay in posting/writing these drabbles! I was sick (still am, but slightly better) and all that coughing sucked every last bit of creative energy out of me. If anyone has tipps on how to get rid of this fucking cough, I'll take them!

If I give a prompt that is then turned into fic, can I say it's for me? If yes: I've got fic! :D

Yes, I know, there's tons of stuff to read and there is so little time. But if you get the chance, you should definitely check this baby out: Working on Our Issues - Harry/Severus - about 6,800 words with a nice bit of flangst and a happy ending! ♥
