Two Buffyverse fandom awards sites are open for voting now!

The Willowy Goodness Awards - Willow-centric fic. C'mon, you all know you love our geeky witch. Go support the amazing writers and spread the love!

The Hellmouth Awards - this site focuses on rare pairings within the fandom. Go take a look and you never know, you might find a new OTP!

And, yeah, I may be nominated in both sites...

*SQQQQUUUEEEEESSSSS!!!!!*

I don't want to stop any of the awards sites - especially not the WKA which is where it all started for me!

I'm actually considering a whole new start and am also considering a couple of new ones as well. I floated the idea on Twitter yesterday but didn't get any feedback there. What do you think of adding Dollhouse and/or Leverage awards sites into the mix?

A lot of the time I feel terrible because I start each round with the best of intentions and then by the time the winners are announced I'm snowed under with other things and can't devote the attention to them that they deserve - hence me asking what people think of the timings of the different awards and also whether they would be willing to help out.

I'm having a crappy time right now - no real reason, just my meds not balancing and the people I connect most with being unavailable to me for one reason or another - but I adore fandom and it makes me happy. So I'm trying to throw myself back into it with a vengeance. I'm writing again, I signed up for [livejournal.com profile] thebigbangjob as an author and have my idea, have a hook, was brainstorming it on an A3 sheet and got shivers up my spine. Speaking of, I may be in need of a beta or two in a little while for this - anyone interested?

I've been working quietly with [livejournal.com profile] r_becca and she and I are really excited about the prospect of the thing we're working on... (*is vague*)

Waiting for [livejournal.com profile] thedothatgirl to get back from holiday so that I can get stuck into the AVA special summer round.

And three (or five) awards sites (staggered so that my brain doesn't explode...) sounds like fun to me.

Now I'm going to go home and try to write something that isn't the epilogue...

(and I'm signed up for [livejournal.com profile] whedon20in20 this month as well. See? I'm determined.)

Only one day left to get in your nominations for the White Knight Awards!

Go on... you know you want to!

and speaking of... )

I've contacted all the nominees so far, if you're on the list and you haven't got a message from me, I'm so sorry - let me know?

Still looking for judges for the S&B Awards btw - if you're interested, please let me know? And I know I should be at home right now setting up the new layout for that site, but that would be a sensible thing to do. I'm not exactly sensible am I?

The Faith awards site will be going ahead by the way - as a hybrid pop choice/judged site for which I'm also looking for judges... (and suggestions for site names other than Five by Five Awards because that just seems a little too obvious to me.)

White Knight Awards - Summer 2009
Open for Nominations!


Yup, exactly what it says up there - the WKA is back and open for nominations. There's been a tiny pruning of the categories and a couple of changes to the rules so please take a quick look before you nominate.

And now I'm looking forward to sitting back and letting that old familiar awards site stress take over my life... (I love it really!)

Dude, Saturday morning and I've been up for four hours already. Okay, so I didn't actually get to sleep 'till about 3 this morning, but as they say "Sleepiness is weakness of character". Thank you Wash.

Emails are now all sent - yay! And yes, I screwed up and put the wrong damn URL in some of the WKA notifications - sorry about that if you're one of those who got both that and the "I'm an idiot" email that followed it ten minutes later. *shakes head* I am an idiot sometimes!

Right, done and dusted. I need to wait for replies from two one authors who have has two fics in a single category and then voting can be set up to start on Monday the 8th for the WKA. Yay!

Judging is more or less sorted on the S&B Awards, although I have to spend the rest of my time online here downloading fics to my pen drive so that I can judge them (I'm covering all categories but focusing on the longer ones - didn't think it was fair to take advantage of the generosity of my fellow judges too badly) And I also need to decide on criteria for judging authors. That one's not so easy - quantity over quality? nah, of course not, but on the other hand... too many thoughts. Brain hurty.

Right, now I'm off to upload some more things to Fandom's Bitch (most of my fic is up there now - except some of the longer WIPs (Crimson Regret, WaDaDM) - I have over 100 fics. I didn't know I'd written that much. Dude!) and then start downloading fics to judge.

Yay!

I have a huge favour to ask - anyone who has read and is famililar with this fic:

Terror Town, USA by bayre

could you take a look at the categories on the salt & burn awards and point it into an appropriate category? It was previously nominated in the 'Unfinished Fic' one but is now complete, the author's been in touch and I've told her I'd move it. Of course, it's one of the ones I haven't read before so I don't know where to put it.

Yikes!

Also? One of the judges has contacted me to let me know she can't guarrantee having the time and has had to pull out this round - is there anyone willing to step in and help out?

*hugs*

WKA people - I've had a shocking week this week and have only just made it outside to update the nominees. Sorry it took so long! I now (of course...) have encountered a problem with the PHP commands in the voting and results forms - hopefully that will be fixed by the weekend, but if not then I'll be using a free poll service this round to make sure voting can start on time.

(and yes, I'm aware of the irony of having site problems I can't fix straight away whilst I'm wearing my 'no I won't fix your computer' t-shirt!)

Oh! [livejournal.com profile] jasonsnene - I was about to email you, do you house your NC-17 fics elsewhere? One has been nominated but it's a flocked entry which would normally discount it from being added. If it's somewhere else on the web then I can link to it there)

Busy writing - have updated both awards sites

Salt and Burn Awards

White Knight Awards

I'm a bit rushed right now and haven't got the time to email the nominees (the network was down for most of the time I've been in the library unfortunately), but I will be doing so on Thursday when I am back online.

Been busy trying to get my life together, finding some things amusing and some things heartbreaking. Sometimes they're even the same thing.

Could the remaining judges for S&B who haven't yet sent me a blurb please do so soon? Thanks.
Oh! And [livejournal.com profile] aaronlisa? Your yahoo email seems to be bouncing, is there another I should be using? (Message me if you'd rather not leave it public here)

So yesterday I went and spent some time at my sister's house, my eldest nephew's not well right now so he was off school, talked a little, hashed out some things, went home to my own house and went to bed. It was about 7pm or something, I know it was early. I didn't sleep very well, I didn't write anything, I ended up reading a couple of Pratchett books that I know inside and out, and I feel... not so down. Not better or anything, but not so down.

So that's good.

I have to head into the next town in an hour to sign on and I forgot to lift my wallet when I left the house to come to the library so I have to go back home first (which wouldn't be a problem except I have to walk past the train station to get home and then walk back, thereby looking like a prat.) And my mp3 player has finally bitten the dust. I guess it's not so bad given that it was a tenner three or four years ago. But with it gone and my CD player skipping all the time (probably needs the lens cleaned or something) it means I am completely tuneless for most of today (it takes about ten to fifteen minutes to sign on and then fifty minutes to wait for the train home).

I'm starting to get concerned that there's been no nominations at all in either awards site. I know the forms working because I've run a few tests on both of them. Is it worth running them if there's no interest?

Realistically I have nothing really to say right now, I'm just typing this to justify my coming into the library. Oh, and I'm still really behind on my flist - not seen any eps of the shows we all watch yet - so please let me know what's going on in your lives?

(Congrats to [livejournal.com profile] emeraldswan and family by the way! I've already said it, but I love you honey - *big hugs*)
