internet? are you there?

Man, this place is dead. My reading filter goes back three days in the first forty posts.

Talk to me! What's new with you? Exciting TV? Big bangs going along all right? Other writing projects? Interesting books you're reading?

I should be writing heroinebigbang, but I'm down with a flu, so I refuse. Instead I spent the evening reading some popular TVD fics, and being absolutely terrified by the amount of bad writing and consent issues :(.

I learned my lesson. Tomorrow I'll try to get some writing done.

Ugh, I'm sorry. I have days like that, too - where I spend the first half of the day reading fics I know will be bad and the second bemoaning how bad they were.

I am supposed to be writing spn_j2_bigbang. We see how well that's going. :P

Good luck! :) I'm just doing a mini bang, so I don't need much to get my rough draft done (due next week, lalalala). I just need to get myself together and decide whether or not I actually like this fic.

And good luck to you!

making a fan film is hard. i have no idea how they shoot and produce so many episodes each season! it's incredible.

(that's my big bang, lol)

Woo! I can only imagine how much work that would be. You've been working on that for quite a while, haven't you? Do you have a target date for when it might be ready to show people?
Apr. 22nd, 2013 07:17 pm (UTC)
Yup! the release schedule is here

I've been working on this since August 2011. *facepalm* I'm a year behind schedule (I blame my baby.)
Apr. 22nd, 2013 07:33 pm (UTC)
I'm super excited to see the results.

*raises hand* I was here today! You know my writing project news (the strawberry margarita was indeed quite yummy). :D Now I have to work on my teensybang revisions. Psych is my new show, and that's quite fun. I'm re-reading Gatsby before the movie comes out. And I ran seven miles today.

How goes GoT? How was bb progress today?

ETA: OH, I also officially changed my default icon to Bela today! Which should not be a big deal except IT TOTALLY FEELS LIKE A BIG DEAL. I used that Spuffy icon for years. But it was past time.

I cannot wait to see this S8 fic you keep hinting at.

I have not watched the latest GoT yet, and now there'll be another one tonight. Acquiring the episodes is a pain, and sometimes I cannot be bothered. This week or next I'll get all caught up again. Actually, maybe week after next - when rough draft of bb is turned in. :)

W00t, new default icon! I've been thinking about changing mine for at least a year, but as I can't figure out what to change it to, I've not done anything about it.

I have been determined to write something, anything, even if it's just a bunch of ficlets I've had ideas for forever. That's my project for now.
Apr. 22nd, 2013 02:52 am (UTC)
Yay! I saw that Darla fic you posted the other day, but I hadn't read the short story, so I haven't gotten around to reading yet.
Apr. 22nd, 2013 03:01 am (UTC)
Yeah, I kind of feel bad that that fic comes with 'reading material', lol. That's why I linked to Wikipedia.
Apr. 22nd, 2013 02:46 am (UTC)
It sure is dead lately.


Sorry...I just came here to say that. :)

Seriously, though, I haven't seen much to comment on. Until the end of the month, when Amplificathon ends, my fannish output is pretty much all podfic, all the time.
Apr. 22nd, 2013 02:53 am (UTC)
Ha ha. Well, hurrah for podfic! I confess, podfics aren't my fic medium of choice, but I'm glad they're there for other people to enjoy. :)

Well I've started a second draft of what might be a novel. Besides re-writing the first 5,000 words, I'm hard-pressed to come up with a catchy title for speculative erotica. Thoughts are:

Dark is the Night
Dumpster Porn
Sour Cherry
Cracker Fever

Man, I can't help you there. That's pretty far out of my field, unless it has beloved SPN characters in it. :)
Apr. 23rd, 2013 03:08 pm (UTC)
oh it has *cough* nothing to do with two guys who kill monsters and then bang each other's brains out

Well, I'm an unabashed Kindle whore so I've been jumping in and out of the Kindle store and accumulating free weresmut (really any kind of smut that strikes my fancy, including vampsmut and cowboysmut and merman smut and regular human smut and some free YA material). And also endlessly fiddling with a new writing program I just bought named Scrivener, which has helped me organize my novel way better than Evernote. That's essentially what's going on with me. :3

I too have been fairly disappointed with the slow activity here on LJ.

I've heard good things about Scrivener! Good luck with your novel-writing project.
