I don't say it often, because I think it usually makes me sound foolish, but I really like the fic I wrote for Yuletide. I had my main assignment and then I grabbed a pinch hit. I like how both of them worked out.

Of course, I've learned long ago that what I like doesn't always translate to what others like. So, I'm rather nervous. The last thing I wrote for Yuletide (many moons ago) was well received and you would think that would make me less antsy. No such luck.

Well, I'm not going to be around much today and tomorrow, so I'll have to wait and see!

For the season I give you a short drabble I wrote a while ago, in honor of joy and wonder:

A Wintry World

The sky raged with snow, as if stirred by an all-powerful hand. At the apex of the storm nothing could be seen but swirling flecks of white. The storm waned and small houses could be glimpsed as the heavy flakes slowed and settled.

A scene evolved from the chaos. A tiny hamlet of houses, brightly decorated with snow covered awnings and dark evergreen trees. The last of the snow drifted to the ground, peace reigned.

A small child clapped and laughed, wonder and joy filled the small sounds. “More, p’ease. More!”

The mother smiled and shook the snow globe again.

Just drabbles, but still writing.

I joined [livejournal.com profile] xoverland. It's a community where you write fic, make graphics and play games to earn points for the team you belong to. The best part is that it's all about the crossover, baby!

I'm hoping it gets me writing a bit more. I've been... unfocused as of late and that makes it hard to motivate myself to do anything.

Not sure if it will work, mostly because I tend to miss the deadlines for things (bad me). But I did manage to enter in the first fic challenge (good me).

The first challenge: write up to three crossover drabbles with the theme: kiss. Even though I hate the prompt (it really almost forces you to write a ship), I managed to write two. Yay, me! They will be posted shortly!

In response to my Drabble Meme, here is a non-fandom drabble for [livejournal.com profile] donnickcottage, who wanted me to "write of wonder".

It's not to late to get a drabble. Ask and you shall receive!
