Oh, man, all the time. It's cool though, none of them ever found out. They kind of couldn't.

...wait, you're not including fictional people, are you? Uh, well, never mind then.

That's...not too hard, actually. I'd immediately sink all of my money into tickets to see all my friends and take at least [livejournal.com profile] faeriemaiden with me to visit some of the places I've always wanted to see, plus some I've already seen but want to see again. Not sure what I'd do about all my writing projects, because a month isn't enough time for that...

Just today--reading this amazing thread in which, basically, a significant portion of the internet came together to save a couple Russian students from sex-trafficking. Seriously, read it.

...also, uh, I really keep meaning to update more, if for no other reason than because...yeah, icons. My paid account runs out in less than a month and I'll probably renew it (for the icons) but I kind of need to, y'know, justify the expense by actually making use of said account and said icons.

I mean, if you follow me on Twitter or Tumblr (where I also run blogs dedicated to fireflies, raspberries, and my sort-of-in-progress novel Thieves' Honor, and no I honestly can't remember if I've linked these before), I've been a lot more active there, so you probably have a good idea of what's going on in my life...but I don't want to abandon this blog like I've abandoned others, and blogging is kind of free therapy, and also: ICONS.

I DON'T KNOW. D: In fact at the moment nobody is coming to mind--I mean, with a lot of the authors I really love, I spend most of their books in a state of awed resentment and despair, because I would love to write that well and/or that deeply (sometimes it's the style and the way with words, sometimes it's the ability to create wonderful characters, sometimes it's the content and the way that content is addressed), but at the moment I actually can't think of who those people are. There are plenty of authors I absolutely love but whose writing I don't despair of emulating because it's--I don't know, not transcendent? And it's that transcendence I really want? Plus most of the writers who do make me despair over my own writing normally seem to have only one or two of those qualities and not all of them, meaning their writing isn't perfect, which...duh, no one's is. But if I were picking somebody, they'd have to have pretty much everything I want my writing to have.

The problem here could, of course, just be that it's 1 a.m. and I should go to bed.
