Every year I take a trip with my Mom to the same place. It's become a sort of a tradition with us. A chance to hang out and enjoy a beautiful place. I'm packing up right now for this year's trip and I'm facing the typical conundrum of 'do I take my laptop with me?' There is no internet access and very poor reception otherwise, so I am looking at printing out a few stories in progress and just taking those with me. It's reminding me that one of my strongest memories of these trips the last few years have been me working hard against a ficathon deadline. It's funny to me that I sort of can't separate that out from the trip traditions anymore. I so clearly remember pacing around as I wrestled various plot twists into place on Beneath the Stains of Time for the apocalypse_kree ficathon. I remember working on my porny Compliance 'verse for the porn fest. I remember trying to get String Theory to cooperate. I've pretty much given up ficathons in the last few years, mainly because in my old age I am getting slower and slower at finishing things. But this year I fittingly do have one more deadline looming, my help_japan fic. Hopefully tradition will hold and I will actually finish it. :)

Have a great weekend!
