ooo! Sekrit admirer! - LOLMac
u can has RDA
ooo! Sekrit admirer!
So I return to my computer to try to catch up on emails, and find that someone has sent me an anonymous gift through LJ!  Glitterati sunglasses, no less!  I can has fabulousness!!

*puts sunglasses on, looks awesome, can't see the screen*  Ah, well!

If the sekrit donor is reading this, thank you very much!

And as long as I'm doing a weekend post, here's a progress report:  barring one of those unforeseeable mutations that can happen in a story, Reverb has two more chapters to go, plus an epilogue -- around another 10,000 to 12,000 words, I think.  Because I have a lot of story to wrap up, I'm writing both of the final chapters at once.

So Chapter 13, although it's finally progressing well, is still a long ways from finished.  The good news is that, although the lag before the posting of chapter 13 is running even longer than usual, the lag between chapter 13 and chapter 14 is likely to be a lot shorter.  (And when you see how chapter 13 ends, you might be glad for that.  Or you might want to throw things.)

Many many hugs and thanks to everyone who's been giving me support and feedback, not to mention my inestimable Research Assistants!  You folks rock.

I've truly been enjoying Reverb though - I have to confess - what happened to Murdoc (don't wanna spoil anything if someone hasn't read it) makes me feel funny inside. LOVE Murdoc. Still, I trust your vision....

Thank you! Both for the trust and the delicate non-spoileryness.

One of the most evil things about Murdoc turned out to be that he can be way too much fun to write.

Well, you've got his voice spot-on. Should we be worried? ;-)

Oh, and Michael Des Barres is the shit!

Better wait till the story's finished before you decide whether or not to be worried. *evil laugh*

I fantasise about having RDA and Michael des Barres do an audiobook recording . . .

OMG, Yessssss!

Aw, crap. I make a new friend and now her brain has imploded! Waaah!

*applies brain restorer*

Heh! That's okay. My brain implodes (or explodes) on a regular basis when I'm immersed in the Mac!Universe. It's rarely permanent. ;-)

Whew! :D

ETA: If you haven't yet discovered the comm rda_daily, that's a nice source for brain asplosion of the more pleasant kind. (I'm a co-mod there, so this is pimpage on my part.) The macgyver_daily comm, alas, has been inactive for a couple of years.

Sorry about hijacking your journal entry/thread. Just thought I should introduce myself. I'm Taryn, 45 yrs old, recently divorced (April 2009 after 17 years) with two kids - my son will be 22 and my daughter just turned 13. Born, raised and living in Northeast Ohio. Oh, and I've been an RDA fan since Emerald Point NAS and Seven Brides For Seven Brothers (though never General Hospital - my soaps were all on CBS).
