Why, LJ?

I missed the "random posting" day. Sorry.

Can anyone tell me how to put my friends "feed" back to the way I had it before LJ decided that imposing their new style on me was actually what I really wanted? I have googled and searched the FAQs, to no avail, and I really loathe the new look. I liked it the way I had it before, thanks!

And, yeah. It's been a rough patch over at Casa [livejournal.com profile] ratherastory. I'll try to write more, but no promises. I'm busy, stressed, exhausted and depressed (although I'm not technically supposed to acknowledge any of that in public, because apparently I totally have it easy and to say anything would be complaining without cause—heck, I'm sure even this parenthetical aside will get me into trouble), so I haven't been writing much. I'm trying to fix that, but it's slow going.

I'm considering dropping out of [livejournal.com profile] spn_summergen. I've got about half the story written, and I was on track for deadline, but then they started posting early, and it's stressing me the fuck out. To the point where, the moment they announced that they'd start posting early and that if authors didn't hurry up they wouldn't have anything to post after a while, my writing physically ground to a halt. It's like it flipped a switch in my head that started up a one-track record: "You'll never get it done now, so you may as well give up."So, yeah. I don't know what to do about that. I've never had to drop out of summergen before, and it sucks.

I have two other big fic challenges, luckily both due in August. I'm still cautiously optimistic about those.
