I have produced words since the 15th, really I have. They just haven't been fiction. *sigh*

On the bright side, I think I know how I want to rework the opening to Carnival. I just haven't done it yet.

Word count remains:



5863 / 10000 words. 59% done!

My excuse is that I was at a con all weekend, see. Which wasn't as much fun this year as I hoped it would be, but I did get a bunch of knitting done instead of note-taking at panels on Saturday. So. *shrug* Trade-off.

Dear Yuletide Writer:

This is my first Yuletide, so it is all very new and exciting to me! Thank you for offering to write for any of these fandoms! I hope you will have fun with them - there's little to no fic in any of them, so anything will be a welcome addition.

Two of my fandoms I haven't talked about much in my journal, so this letter contains some thoughts about what I love about them.


Darker Than Black )

Takeshi Kovacs trilogy )

Saiyuki Gaiden )

Happy writing!

I've realized that the reason I wibble about doing book reviews is that I never learned a template for them in school. I mean, I'm sure I did the crappy grade-school kind of book review, but they weren't really done in high school, when my writing brain was actually active and engaged. Except maybe that one time that Mr. Horton made us each get up in front of the class and name three interesting things about the book we were reading, and rang a bell if we misused the word "like". >.>

So anyway. I am now reminding myself that devolving into squee about what I liked, or picking out what I didn't like and why, are perfectly valid reactions!

I really need to finish my commentary on Broken Angels and Woken Furies (aka WTF, me reading military hard SF??) and do my thoughts on Witch Eyes.

This is not a placeholder. :P

Sign-ups haven't even opened and I'm looking at the massive list of nominations and wibbling. IDEK GUYS!

I will not flail. It's doable. I've seen you guys doing it year after year. I'm just. WAAAH.

First timer freakout. ^_^;

What happened to the importer/uploader for AO3? Do I *have* to copy and paste everything now? Was it a victim of the deploy?

Day 11:
* 225 words on the next Carnival scene

Day 12:
* ~1200 words (hand-written) on Ride, which is Rob/Ed on a motorcycle, and which may never get posted because it devolved into SRS talk about open relationships and stuff and is not at all my silly fun !boyband. (Except it is, very, because they are both married, and I refuse to just get rid of wives, but I also very much want them *together* and that requires negotiation to not fail, and OMGWTFBBQ you'd think this was an origi-verse or something.) *facepalm*

ETA: Forgot the counter!


5217 / 10000 words. 52% done!

Anyway.

I think I might do Yuletide this year. >.> Am definitely nomm'ing Darker Than Black. Other than that, I've seen others nom several fandoms I could probably do, so I'm debating filling in something a) crazy (like Takeshi Kovacs trilogy) or b) for someone else (someone wanted "Barrett's Privateers" but ran out of nom slots).

Thirdly! As soon as the importer is functional again, I am backing up my LJ to nekonexus@DW, and I am going to stop allowing comments on LJ because I am sick and tired of this bullshit and the DDoS attacks (which are only likely to continue/get worse until/during/after the election), and my paid time expires in March 2012 anyway. But first I need to get Carnival and stuff over here.

That is all. Carry on with your Sunday. :P

nekonexus: (Hei)
Okay. Finally got the x-poster settings to work here, so I don't have to manually c/p posts. Feh.

If you're wondering how to do this, DW folks, here it is:

On the "Other Sites" tab of the My Account page, click Add New Account.
For "Site" - choose "Other" instead of Livejournal.
In the "Custom Service URL" box, put: http://www.livejournal.com/interface/xmlrpc
Type your account name and password as usual, then click Create.

Voila! (I hope. :) )

Day 8:
* 332 words - Saiyuki Gaiden ficlet (for Hallowe'en meme)



3792 / 10000 words. 38% done!
nekonexus: (writer)
Day 7:
* 1125 words on the 'sequel' (which I hope to make standalone) to the still-as-yet-unpublished short story about the gunsmith's wife. Strangely enough, it's quasi-horror. o.O; I thought I confined that to Saiyuki. Hah. Anyway. Someday you'll all get to read it!

*shounen fist pump* Take that, MiniWriMo!



3460 / 10000 words. 35% done!
nekonexus: (writer)
Day 5:
* 0!

Day 6:
* 0!

Complete and utter lack of werds - except the ones I wrote in my head, which don't count because I don't have a mental wordcount app. :P

Good thing I had some buffer.
nekonexus: (writer)
Day 4:
* 886 words on Carnival ~ Scene 29 (about half the words in that post were already written, so they don't count towards mini-wrimo total)



2334 / 10000 words. 23% done!
nekonexus: (writer)
Day 3:
* 700 words - Node (which you can find over here, if you're so inclined)




1448 / 10000 words. 14% done!

BTW!

On the occasion of Ember's 1+1 day (1 year + 1 day old) today, she wishes to inform you that chicken is tasty, sardines are even better, and a little green salad is a nice treat.



She has survived a year of Apocapuppy duties, and will happily continue. -=^_^=-

Day 1:
* 68 words on Wyrm's Journey
* 300 words on steampunk!Toronto

Day 2:
* 380 words on steampunk!Toronto

Total: 748

Goal: 10k/30d = ~334w/d

Status: on track! :)



748 / 10000 words. 7% done!


ETA: By the way, Samuel Jarvis was a first class jerk (with special honours in asshattery). End of your Toronto !history lesson for today.


RETURN OF THE ETA: You can still leave requests on the Fic or Treat post. I will try to get to them all this weekend. :)
nekonexus: (death AND cake)
Halloween meme! from folks on DW, via [livejournal.com profile] lady_ganesh and elsewhere.

Fic or Treat!
  • Leave a comment with a fandom, pairing, character and/or prompt.
  • Multiple requests are okay (but as options rather than a shopping list).
  • You will get something, either a fic or a treat!
  • For the purposes of this meme, Destruct-o Pup and assCat are totally a fandom. ^_~


Fics: Enough to tell a story, I promise you that much.
Treats: Pics! or links, or recs.

Talk to me, people! Even if we haven't chatted much in a while. Use this as an excuse to spam up my inbox! Please. It's lonely. :(

Ideal fandoms are probably Saiyuki... and um. er. Maybe Fringe? Well. >.> Let's say anything from my tags is fair game. (and yes, that includes origi-fic, too)
