Hello, all! Sorry I've been pretty much MIA, as of late. I'll try to be better about keeping things lively here.

Lately, I realized I have a lot of unfinished writing projects. Over a period of five to seven years, these stories have been slowly congregating into one big, inter-connected saga, with huge time jumps in between some of the books. Rather like Tolkien's works, which is half coincidence and half not.

I'm tired of leaving these stories alone for weeks at a time, so I'm challenging myself to work at least a little bit every single day. I want this saga, big and cumbersome though it is, to be DONE in five years. I want the crux point, which was suppposed to be one novel and ended up growing into a trilogy, to be done in two.

I think I'm crazy. But I'm happier for coming to this decision, so I'll be crazy and happy. :)

Hope you're all doing well!

Where did August go? Honestly, I need to know what time is doing to speed up so fast!



Then I can do that, too, and find a way to finish my writing projects before the end of the year. My current vampire-bashing WIP (which grew into two very complex books not just about bashing vampires), and my kid's story about a wizard (which is growing way too dark for children) are both crawling along at a snail's pace.

But at the same time, I desperately want it to be October and November. Supernatural, Sherlock, Thor 2, Catching Fire. Oh, this fall is going to be so amazing!



In other news, I need to stop spending money on cute dresses, especially stuff from Korea on e-Bay. But they're all just so precious, I can't help myself! :)

(Here is Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, and Part 4.)

Chaos breaks out. Not the giant spiders are attacking, we'll all be spun cocktails in five seconds, run, Mr. Frodo, run sort of chaos. (Thankfully.) Just the social discomfort of the highest degree that seems trifling when read about, but very, very, very bad when actually experienced first hand.

Onward, ho! )

At the eager requests of [livejournal.com profile] litlover12 and [livejournal.com profile] msantimacassar, I bring forth a crossover fic about Sir Percy Blakeney meeting Severus Snape. I'm sorry it took so long to whip this up, ladies. I was afraid to start it for a long time, thinking I wouldn't be able to do the concept justice--then I decided to just get it over with, and rewrite it if I feel like it later on. Guess that is one of the beauties of writing. :)

A little tribute to two of the bravest men in fiction . . . )

Chapter IV
The League of the Scarlet Pimpernel

Everybody's sitting happily at the well-laid table in the coffee room of the Fisherman's Rest—everyone, that is, except one of the following possible people.

a. Severus Snape
b. Eeyore
c. the Lone Ranger
d. those domino-playing guys who are NOT French

And the answer is . . . )

A trend of thought seems to have emerged in The Hunger Games fandom. When people think Katniss Everdeen, they think of a strong, powerful heroine. Katniss has basically become the symbol of young girl without a single weakness.

Why do so many people assume Katniss Everdeen has no weakness? Where does Suzanne Collins state or imply in her Hunger Games trilogy that her heroine has no weakness?

Nowhere.

So what gave people that idea? )

I just got a few more ideas from these beautiful images (found in this tumblr post). That's it, I need to tear myself away from the internet and WRITE.

I got to thinking about writing, and what motivates me to write, in the wee hours of the morning. This is the result. Why is it always easier to write about writing than anything else?

To those of you all excited about the beginning of 2012: HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

To those of you feeling a little jet-lagged by the sudden ending of 2011: Know the feeling. Maybe we'll all get better at getting used to how quickly time flies next year.

I'm feeling just the slightest bit depressed, because I would have liked to have more to speak for at the end of this year; but that's life.

And now I'm going to get wordy, like a true wannabe-novelist . . . )

NaNoWriMo is approaching. Since I’ll be trying to wrap up a novel I’m nearly through and whip up its sequel this month, I probably won’t be posting much, if at all. I’ll post when I post. See you all more often once this upcoming whirlwind of a November is over!
