I'm back stateside again, hopefully until the fall. Looking forward to taking an overdue vacation, catching up on reading (including the last part of the sshg_exchange — that I couldn't finish before my trip), and getting back into some drawing.
I'll be playing catch up again for some time, but at least I made the sign up for the severusbigbang — by a few hours! Happy Birthday and hello to all those who've I missed! Hope you all are well!
Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and a fantastic start to 2009. It's good to be home!
Is there a "generally accepted" etiquette on reviewing a story? Do you post a review for every one you read or just every one you like? Do you review every chapter or just when you're moved to by the writer? Being more of a reader than a writer, I figured this was best answered by authors themselves.
And while I"m in the question asking mood, how and when do you friend someone? Is friending folks you don't really know, but are a fan of their work, akin to running around hugging strangers? Do people really prefer the random "Would you mind if I friended you" post verses the "ninja" friending?
I feel kind of silly but I'd rather ask than step on toes. :)

In appreciation of the many wonderful and talented authors whose work I have enjoyed these last few months, I'm attempting to rectify my lurking ways. Unsure exactly how to begin, a journal seemed a proper place to start. Advice from the kindergarten bus seems strangely appropriate right now: find a seat, say hello to your new neighbors, and enjoy the ride.
