Who is Proseac?
I figure it's time I updated this profile. Amazing what can change in a year...but first, some background.
I discovered NCIS in the summer hiatus between seasons 6 & 7. The promos for Truth or Consequences intrigued me, but it was tuning in late at night to watch House, and catching the tail end of The Meat Puzzle, that got me, hook line and sinker. David McCallum, lying on a slab in a funeral parlour, the victim of an apparent blood-letting! And oh, heavens, there's Mark Harmon, coming to the rescue! And... OH MY... who is that gorgeous young specimen with him? Tony, they call him. Wow, how have I not seen this before? What IS this show? Must. Watch. Every. Episode. NOW.
And watch every episode I did. All out of order. Which led to some confusion, as you can imagine. And so was born The NCIS Daily Drabble, which turned into the Weekly Drabble, which ground to a virtual halt with the arrival of Sam Ryan. I do intend to pick it up again. Honest. Please be patient with me. Time is at a premium at the moment, because...
I'm currently in training for the Ottawa marathon, and as you can imagine, that takes up a LOT of my spare time. It's amazing enough to me that I'm actually writing again, but I did manage to win NaNoWriMo this past November, and yes, the draft is an epic NCIS fanfic, which I also hope to polish up and post within the next couple of months. The story has haunted me for over a year, so it felt good to get it out. I'm excited by the prospect of posting something fresh and, I think, a bit more challenging and thought-provoking than my previous multi-chapter fics.
I hope if one of my recent postings brought you here, you'll go back and check out some of the old stuff too. Feedback is awesome; feedback on old stuff is doubly awesome. :)
Some personal tidbits:
I'm a cat-lover (like most writers, it seems), and currently live with one very demanding little 14-year old tortie named Abby, believe it or not. No, she's not actually named for Ms. Sciuto - she came to me a full three years before the NCIS premiere. Call it a happy coincidence!
I'm a runner. After 27 years of sedentary sloth, I put on my shoes again and took up the sport once more. Discovering that after 30 seconds I felt like dying was certainly a wake-up call. I started back at the very beginning, and worked my way up from there. I ran my first marathon on May 3rd, 2014 - The Cincinnati Flying Pig - where I had the great pleasure of meeting my online NCIS pal mamamia1964 in person for the first time. I now share my love of running with others as an instructor at The Running Room, and will be tackling my second marathon in Ottawa this coming May. Life is good.
I'm a jazz freak. You have no idea how much joy it gave me to learn that our Tony is a Coltrane fan.
I live in Canada. And no, we don't have snow in September. Right now, however, we have a ton. Want some? Take it. Please.
