Okay folks, it's that time. I need addresses for holiday cards. I know for a fact that some of you have moved or are about to move on me (you know who you are), so I'll need updates.

If you are new and have no idea what I'm talking about here's the skinny. Every year, I make handmade holiday cards. Every year, I give people on my friends list the chance to drop me their address if they want one. You can drop your address here, (comments are screened), PM me through LJ, or e-mail me at cj1875 AT gmail DOT com.

Seems there's a bill (technically two) being fast-tracked in Congress that severely alters the way copyright law will work. So far, what I'm reading does not thrill my soul, as it seems to essentially open up any "found" artwork or photos to general use. In theory, it's clarification of Fair Use; in seems to remove the right of the independent artist to protect their work, unless they officially register the work as "theirs." And it affects art of all kinds- illustration, fine art, photography, graphic design, your online photo album- all unregistered works would be considered "orphaned" upon passing of the bill, and thus Fair Use applies. There's some recourse available, but not enough to be worth the trouble.

Now I'm still reading up and researching, but right now, I'm opposed to the Orphan Works bills.

If you would like information on the bills:

Orphan Works Act of 2008 as posted in the Library of Congress, legalese and all.

YouTube video of a discussion of the bill at the recent Craft and Hobby Association trade show.

Orphan Works Opposition Headquarters, also has some good info, as well as a petition against the bill, if you are so inclined.

Soooooo, I'm getting ready to finish up my holiday cards. Making the list, checking it twice and so on. If you'd like to receive a nifty keen handmade card from me this season, just drop me a comment. I'll check my address book, and confirm addy's with you via e-mail.

Return cards aren't required, BTW. I just like making them, and what's the point of making them if I don't send them?

Er, yeah so I haven't actually done the big update...yet. But I did finish my fic for this month's [ profile] genrechallenge. This month's genre was fantasy, and I'm glad I finished- even if I did wimp out and take the 1 time extension.

So if you're interested in a ficlet...

follow the fake cut to my entry

And while you're there, check out some of the other submissions. Read! Review! We all enjoy Constructive Criticism! Seriously, there's some really good authors in the group.

If you would like to receive a holiday card from me and the hubby, drop me a line at cj1875 AT gmail DOT com with your name and address.

hehe, this will be fun, and force me to use all the holiday paper and embellisments I've been hoarding. Because, you see, there's just no way I can make the same card for everyone. Nope, gonna be all originals...

gahhh, I'm insane.

Taking a chance here, since I haven't written ANYTHING in way too long. And I'm a bit intimidated, since some of you guys are pretty darn good writers. But I figured, why not give it a shot:)

The first 10 people to comment on this post get to request a drabble (real drabble: 100 words exactly) from you. In return, they can post this in their journal and write a drabble for you. Post all fandoms you're willing to write for. (this is optional; you don't HAVE to do it in return, but it would be pretty spiffy if you did)

Your friends can pick a relationship, a story arc, a missing scene, or pretty much anything they want, unless the author has previously mentioned that they will not write it. They comment with what they want, and you write drabbles and post it in your LiveJournal.

Fandoms I may be able to write in, hopefully without causing pain are: Harry Potter, Stargate (SG1 or Atlantis), new Battlestar Galactica, new Dr. Who, CSI, and Vampire Hunter D. (yeah, it's quite the random sampling)
