I've been banging away at my dgficexchange story this morning. I've got about 5,000 words and only just hit the first plot point.

*sigh* I'm glad there's a word cap this go round. It helps keep things narrowed down so that I don't go down rabbit trails. Or plot bunny trails as the case may be. *har dee har har*

I'm having a crisis of decision: I really want to audition for Grease. It's hands down one of my favorite musicals, and although I'm tired already, it surely would be cool to end the season the same way I began it. With a musical. I've got a song ready and everything, Gershwin's "Someone Who'll Watch over Me." I &hearts that song. It makes me all romantic and squishy.

But there's a girl's trip with Mom & Emily that I want to go on in mid-April, and a Train concert we've been invited to late March.

Plus the aforementioned exchange and everything else in my life that needs doing. It's completely feasable, and Nolan has been supportive of whatever I want to do.

So, yeah. I'm selfish, but I really want to take the chance of being gone for another two months. On the other hand, I might be too old and not get cast. It happens. Though the rumor is the director is going older....

So, yeah. Thoughts?

And anyone willing to beta read my story for the exchange? For typos, plot continuity and Briticisms? Pretty please?

DO IT!!!

Seriously. It's Grease. You have to. For me. :D

Also, I'll totally read your story. Can't do much about the Briticisms, but I've been told before I'm a pretty decent beta. ;)

LOL *snort*

Uh huh, pretty decent. :D

And thank you for being my enabler. I'll audition, but only for you. ;)

I completely agree with needing to audition!!

If it were me, I'd kick myself for a long time if I didn't at least audition. *nods*

I'm starting on my DG fic today...I seriously want one of those banners!

I don't do the exchange thing, but I love the way you write D/G and would be HONORED to Beta if the job is still open.

Dude. You have to do Grease. Sleep in the summer time.

GREASE IS THE WORD!!!

Of course you have to audition!! That is a no-brainer!! You do remember I saw Grease 15 times....in the movie theater....in 1978? One of my all-time favorite movies!

Side note...we are coming to see you guys next week, just don't know which day yet. Mom is coming with me but going to hang out with her aunt and a cousin for the day, so we are trying to coordinate dates. I'll keep you posted!! Can't wait!!

With See. DO IT. It might not come along again! And you never know, maybe next time you won't be able to do it. At least this time you technically can.

Also, am with her again. Will read it for you, but am not much help with Briticisms.

Lastly, *SMOOSH*

P.S. We should plot after this weekend?

Must. Remember. Word cap.

Thank you for reminding me. Not that it's a problem at the moment. *glares at fic*

I've got about 5,000 words and only just hit the first plot point.

Yep, that's me. I'm writing away and seeing no end in sight. *bleh* But I'm sure I'll whittle it down to something manageable. :-/
