    Good thing I have til November 5th. I have something in mind and a partially-written vignette that I could repurpose, but, I'm still debating on using it, and lately, I've been trying to blast through some piled-up Dear Diary entries. I'm cutting out entries like pumpkin innards just to get caught up!

    I'm pretty sure that Monday Mush is open to all varieties of fanfic, including NSWFF.

    Well, the passed couple of nights, my muse and I made amends long enough for me to write a short vignette. I'll be typing it up and polishing the prose eventually, but I at least wrote something.

    Well, here is my MMM offering. It fits in with the truncation challenge.

    Clouded Vision

    I had started one that would have been for the first challenge, but I couldn't get it done on time.

    Finishing up mine, stuck on a sentence unfortunately.

    looks for a sledgehammer

    There! Got it typed.

    Untitled story that could be titled "Reflections," if I didn't hate that title so much, for whatever reason... "Speak to Me/Breathe"

    It has title now. :D

    [HP] New

    Also part of the character challenge (if it's 10,000 characters).

    And I sneak in under the wire:

    There Is No How

    It's only a little mushy I think and isn't connected to the challenge.

    So, when's the next one? With the Holidays coming up, there's plenty of fodder for mushy stuff. Not to mention my son is providing me with more fodder. [face_tee_hee]

    I actually started writing up some holiday fodder a while back! Doubt I'll use any of it, but it's good practice.

    Is there a Star Wars equivalent to Xmas?

    Well, I usually give every two weeks to read the previous fics before putting up the next one. Also, it's NaNoWriMo so I haven't really thought about it. I'll see what I can come up with though. :)

    Ish. There are various holidays in the GFFA, any of which could be considered to be like Christmas. Probably the closest you'll get is 'Winter Fete' if you're thinking of white Christmases and such. Wookieepedia has this great article which lists most, if not all, holidays: http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Holidays

    Many associate Life Day with Christmas, despite the Holiday Special airing on Thanksgiving.

    I think I will never use a 'Life Day' ever in my fics, just because the Holiday Special was so very, very bad.

    I used Life Day in a vig I wrote for MMM a while back called "A Family DInner". I received some favorable comments on it, one of which said, "it takes away some of the horror of the Holiday Special."

    Ive always used Life Day for birthday. Never knew it originated from the Holiday Special.

    I've used both "birthday" and "name day" for birthdays, as they made sense to me. Life Day, I've used for Christmas, with the Galactic Moon Festival for Halloween, and made up a couple other holidays for my own use, such as Alliance Day for Independence Day and Feast Day for Thanksgiving. Those haven't made it into anything I've posted, though. However, I've used "Name Day" in a birthday image.

    For birthday i've used lifeday... note the lowercase "l" & "d" as opposed to uppercase as well as making it one word... as opposed to Life Day for either Thanksgiving or Christmas. The closest equivalent to Christmas in the GFFA is Winter Fete.

    I use naming day as a term sort of equivalent to how some traditions have a separate ceremony for naming a child/baby from the actual birthday.

    "Name Day" I tend to reserve for Gand characters.

    Sorry about this, but November is a hugely busy month for me and I've been ill the past week. If I manage to get something up for Monday, would January 21st be too late for holiday shenanigans?
