Winter is here

Oh boy, it's here all right. There's ice on the pavements and a chill wind in the air, and I've caught my first cold of the season (luckily, it seems to be of the mild variety easily managed with ibuprofen and lots of strong coffee).

Still stoked about Christmas - the presents are mostly bought and my decorations are already up, not that it took long, seeing as it consists entirely of an advent calendar and a bauble dangled from one of the fronds of my potplant. There's still time to request cards, if you want one! I've got one batch sent off, but I've got enough cards left to do more.

Otherwise, life is okay. Nothing back from the colleges I applied to yet, but the deadline for Fall admissions is in January, so I doubt there'll be anything until some time after then. Work is dull, but unlike the last place, doesn't send me home filled with rage; also, nobody notices if I disappear for long periods of time and hide in a spare room reading articles about the Red Army on Wikipedia, so that's okay. I've been approached to write for an online magazine, completely out of the blue - not paid, mind, and from previous encounters with these 'hey I could totally run the next Jezebel/Awl/Vice from my bedroom with a staff of unpaid strangers' ventures I sincerely doubt it'll still be going in three months' time, but hey, it's at least practice.

Though talking of writing, boy, am I failing hard at producing any fic. So with that procrastination in mind - and maybe a kick up the arse in terms of thinking about what I write - have a meme that's been going round!

Pick a character I've written and I will give and explain the top five ideas/concepts/etc I keep in mind while writing that character that I believe are essential to accurately depicting them.

Preferably one I've written recently/regularly enough that I'm likely to actually have five concepts, or the answer you receive is likely to be disappointing.
