sunspot: drawing of a girl in a kilt and hoodie with a chainsaw, splattered red (i behave most of the time)
Ahh, the ongoing woes of a tiny Canadian who wants to get a few bucks from the American government. It’s not like I’ll be making millions selling stories online, why must you take my 30%

My current options for utilizing the tax treaty (which is set up to protect me and my money, apparently) are:

1. Pay Canadian tax lawyer 400$ to file for my ITIN for me.

2. Mail my original passport to Texas for 4-8 weeks while it’s authenticated, pay 180$ plus shipping both ways to get ITIN.

3. Become sole proprietorship for 135$ here in Ontario, figure out now how to file my fucking Canadian taxes because that wasn’t hard enough, call IRS and get an EIN as opposed to an ITIN. EIN is free and can get over the phone in minutes…

4. Suck it the fuck up and lose the 30% royalties because this is all horrific.

5. Just stop what you’re doing and don’t self-publish. Go lie down and watch Avatar: the Last Airbender and laugh at Appa’s giant furry face.

Favourite thing I've written this year: All That Love, All Those Mistakes

Word Count: 19,500
Summary: After a life on the street and now a job at a run down community centre, Clint classifies himself as a hard-and-fast pessimist. Until he gets the stuffing knocked out of him by a local street gang and suddenly his life is like a bad rom-com, complete with the boy with the smile that makes his knees weak, the ever-helpful matchmaking best friend, gratuitous Abraham Lincoln, and one or more cracked ribs. Okay, maybe he's still a pessimist...

Okay, so more words and fandoms than last year, which was my overall goal. :) Still not enough fandoms for me. Want all the fandoms. I wrote more big bangs this year too. I hope I can keep that up, I love those.

Come on, you know you're at least curious. :)

Post the first sentence (or three) from every WIP you're currently working on, even if it's very short. Then invite people to ask questions about your WIPs. With any luck, you'll get talking about writing, and the motivation to take that WIP one step closer to completion will appear as if by magic!

Waaaah, writing about writing is easier than the writing itself )

Seriously, I'm just the worst at finishing things. There's at least 5 other ones I didn't post on account of actual royal suckage (yes, that includes ~AIR GUITAR AU~)

Was going to do a link-spam of every thing I've written this year, but I decided that... No, I won't do that :D

Here's just a quick breakdown:

Total words written+posted: 104,000 (give or take a couple. I tend to round to the nearest 10)
Number of fics posted: 18
Fandoms Represented: 2 (def going to try to write some more next year)
Big Bangs Posted: 4
Total words written+posted for big bangs: 89,900 (I am in loooooove with big bangs. ALL THE BIG BANGS)
Total # of fics written for porn comment memes & # of words: 8&5,550


And though it makes me a little queasy, here's a link to the thing I wrote that I like the best. I wavered; there's 2 that I like, but this one wins on account of banter. Also, it's shorter, so anyone who wants to read it will be tortured a little less.

The Secret Waiter Job, written for AU Big Bang. Leverage Restaurant AU, Eliot/Hardison, warnings for strong language, lots of knives, and spanking. 23k, rated R.

Leverage is the hot, exciting place on the restaurant scene these days, thanks to its hot, exciting executive chef, Eliot Spencer. New hire Alec Hardison is a mild mannered, smooth talking waiter by night and a double-life-living, top secret culinary school student by day. Together, they'll cook up some sizzling dishes... both in and out of the kitchen.


So basically, if it's not a big bang or Porn Battle, I won't write it. >.< Going to expand my ficcing horizons in 2012. More fandoms, more writing for fun and pleasure, more WORDS. Yes, I signed up to "get my words out". We'll see how that goes. :D
