The power cord for my laptop has died again. At this point, I’m 90% sure that the problem is damage caused by various people tripping over the cord when I’m using my laptop in the bedroom. The only outlets I can reach in there put the cord at mid-shin level. I have to step over it if I need to leave for any reason, and Cordelia has to step over it if she wants hugs. The plug comes out of the wall easily, and the cord falls in half easily and detaches from my laptop easily (it’s magnetic). Cordelia’s power cord is working for my laptop, so it’s not my laptop.

I think I even know what I did this time— One end of the cord got stuck in something, and I tugged to get it loose rather than going over to see what the problem was. I didn’t tug all that hard, but… Yeah. Scott is going to be pissed at needing to buy yet another cord.

I didn’t do any writing yesterday. I was too tired. I suspect I’ll be too tired, today, too.

The Small Fandom Big Bang, [livejournal.com profile] smallfandombang, is looking for artists. Right now, they’ve got twelve artists signed up and expect to have sixty five stories. That ratio is not sustainable, particularly with small fandoms. The list of fandoms (which is longer than the number of stories because of crossovers) is here.

Stories have a 10000 word minimum (no maximum) and the rough drafts are due the 31st of January so that artists have time to work. The time for writers to sign up is long past, but artists are still needed.

Artist claiming is set for 7 February through 13 February, and final drafts for both stories and art are due 31 March with posting from 5 April to 30 April.

The parameters for what qualifies as art are: "Acceptable art includes: A fanmix with at least 8 songs, a series of at least 8 icons, a video, a podfic, a single piece of two-dimensional art such as a cover or banner (manip, drawing, etc), or title and chapter banners."

The artist sign up form link can be found in the community’s sticky post. The challenge rules are on the community profile.
