I watched a movie last night from 2015.

I've never seen it but was surprised because it had Anthony Hopkins in it and Jeffrey Dean Morgan. It was on Amazon Prime movie. It was free and I really liked it. Predictable, but still very entertaining. Check it out if you have the time. I guess it would be good to give you the title. It was called Solace. Like I said, it was really good. Hugs, Patt


The SNowflake Challenge: Day 15

Day 15

Talk about why you participated in Snowflake &/or what you got out of it. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

I'm seriously quite shy, so I try and join in most things that get me out of my quiet life. I needed to belong to something right now and this has been wonderful. I also love to read the entries and look at the links for new reading material and just interesting things that people are talking about. I love this Comm. :) Thank you to everyone for all of the entertainment that you've brought to me. Hugs, Patt

The Snowflake Challenge: Day 14

Day 14

In your own space, talk about what you think the future holds for fandom. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

I think the Sentinel Fandom is still doing well. New writers come every month and it's a joy sharing in their excitement. We continue to have Sentinel Thursday, Sentinel Chat, Sentinel Fic Find on LJ, Sentinel Bingo which went all year long and last but not least we had Sentinel Secret Santa. Between these and my friends, I see Sentinel Fandom being here for a good long time. There are so many people wishing and hoping this will be true. I'm pleased to have started out in the Sentinel fandom 22 years ago and still here, loving every minute of what they all share with us.

The Snowflake Challenge: Day 13

In your own space, set some goals for the coming year. They can be fannish or not, public or private. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

I'm going to try and write one additional story to every fandom I write in. That's a lot of stories, but I have a year to do it. :) Keep in mind, I said, try. :)

Day 12

In your own space, create your own challenge. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

I was working on a Bingo for the Sentinel Bingo and I gave up. That's not like me at all. Some things came up and I just couldn't finish all the boxes. So I'm going to finish those boxes if it kills me. :)

The Snowflake Challenge: Day 11

Day 11

In your own space, talk about your creative process(es) — anything from the initial inspiration to how you feel after something’s done. Do you struggle with motivation or is it a smooth process? Do you have any tricks up your sleeve to pull out when a fanwork isn’t cooperating? What is your level of planning to pantsing/winging it? Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

I struggle with everything. I'm constantly asking a dear friend of mine for story ideas, because sometimes I can't even come up with those. And then other times, I write five stories a week and they come to me from anywhere. So I have found that if I'm struggling, it's best to take my time and just try and relax a little bit. Then the story might come to me easier that way.

I used to love doing artwork for the different Fandoms, but my tremors have gotten so bad that it's almost impossible to do art. I try, I really do, but usually I'm not happy with it. I have finally gotten to the point that I accept the lack of artwork now and have moved on. I really miss it. But I still adore seeing other people's artwork.

But another thing I have happened upon, is I get a super good story idea, sometimes like 1000 words that I know I can't write it like it should be and I send it to my friends, Kate and Sheila. That would be Katef and Bluewolf. This seems to make me very happy, so I will accept this and do the best I can with ideas. :)

The Snowflake Challenge: Day 10

Create a fanwork.

I created a short list of stories for The Sentinel, Forever and Almost Human.

I decided to rec some Sentinel Fandom stories.

Snowflake Challenge: Day 9

Day 9: Commit an act of kindness.

On Wenchpixie's Dreamwidth account, I made 4 Keanu Reaves Icons and a recipe for chicken pot pie. On Mr_Picards journal, I put 5 Patrick Stewart icons and on Siberian_skys journal I put three Raymond Redington icons. :)

Snowflake Challenge: Day 8

Day 8

I put the wrong thing up at first, because I think it was last years day 8. I hope this one is right. Three of my self-recs and why I like them.

William’s Boys: I love this one so much because it’s another AU, I tend to like them very much. Some of the things are the same as Canon, but others have totally changed. Blair just shines in this one, which makes me very happy.


Transformation: I love this one because it’s a take-off Baby Boom, the movie. So needless to say, it’s AU.


Sandburg's Signature Touch. This is another AU, I must love them. I wrote this one for Secret Santa. I liked how it turned out.
