Friends Only? Man, this girl is insane. . .

So the other day (which, as it turns out, was actually today) I got to thinking, and I concluded that this LJ has, in fact, gone FO. And, this being the case, this would probably be the entry anyone who has not yet friended/been friended by me would probably comment on to have one or both of the previously mentioned actions occur.

You may notice that there are several entries that are not, for lack of correct terminology, FO'd. These posts only talk about writing (mostly FF), so I felt no need to FO them.

The rest of my ramblingsCollapse )

Anyway. I guess that's it. I do not expect anything to come from this post, but I figured that it was sort of missing, so here it is. Comment or always wonder what I had to say. Your choice.

P.S. I update this as my interests change and whenver I have nothing better to do.

Writer's Block: Birthday Shout-out

August 1st, 2009 (12:06 am)

current mood: awake
current song: OneRepublic

Happy birthday, J.K. Rowling! Which of her seven Harry Potter novels do you think is the most satisfying read?
I think I'm the weird one ... I like 2, 3 and 6: they're very character-based, exploring the past, so they tell a tale beyond normal school days.

(Pfft, 4 and 5 were my least favorite books AND movies.)

DID I NOT DO THIS POST?!? I'm slipping. K here's how this works: I saw it at midnight, saw it again on opening day (like at 4ish in the afternoon, around the time I woke up lolol), and I'm seeing it in imax on Saturday. So I will give my full opinion of it then. But really - fantastic. So worth seeing three times in the theaters and then owning it and possibly seeing it another time soon if I can afford it since I'll soon be a poor college kid.

Done and done.

Side note: Wreckage is being updated like crazy. I just realized I have three weeks to post 10+ chapters so I'll probably do a few at a time, none of this waiting business.

Stolen from Missy and direction to that post gott from a mafia chat.

I'm pretty much doing nothing this summer so expect something good. =P

The significant "I updated!!!1!" update

Posted my Tedromeda mystery. It turned into a spoof. =P Should be fun to write the following six chapters.

First mature story, and it's completely unwarranted but I really wanted to have one on my author page now that being of age has sunken in. And I love the title! Such an anti-mystery feel to it.

In Broad Daylight - M on HPFF

Reeeeeeeeaaad please! I've been working on it since March and would love your kind (not honest) feedback. Who am I kidding? I'll take the scathing reviews over knowing that everyone just passed by. =)

Soooo it's tidbit time for you HPFF watchers of mine. This'll be a Wreckage post because, basically, that's all I'm working on.

In this post:
- original character names/sketches
- a look at the calendar I've sketched out
 - a third-person look at chapter one (with maybe comments from me?)

Well, you're probably all (you two readers of mine!) wondering who Irene is by now. So here're some detes that'll capture your interest without giving anything away.

Irene Quigley
Gryffindor 7th year - pureishblood
Extrovert, compassionate, humanitarian, accident-prone, life of luxury, can't manage money, (yet somehow) resourceful, reckless, unreliable, attention-seeking, arrogant, initiative
made Lily feel at home in first year, improvises spells, interested in history - especially her family's accomplishments, wears thick jewelery

Annnd some new character names for ya: Sharon (who used to be Acadia and was maybe Giselle or Marianne for a while), Betty (brusque), Linda, Nellie, Acadia, Corrine, Bree, mostly very minor characters and note that none of them are male. Hmmm.

Lily will spend the next chapter with Irene for the most part, and though it's only halfway done I'm itching to get back to Hogwarts. So expect that soon. The first two months of school should conclude by chapter nine. Lily'll keep up the boyfriend facade for more than just the summer. And, for those interested, the first full moon of the year 1977 occurring in the school calendar will be Sep. 27. Hmmm some more.

Take THAT, unproductive cardboard cutout me

Wreckage is UP.

Because I was bored and feeling bad about not posting and procrastinating on my awful Lang hw.

Most. Interesting. Number. Phenomenon. Ever.

Now, nobody ever read it again! Or read it a ton and bring it up to 1113. =) It's funny, because the implications don't bother me. One of my favorite stories has so few reads after a year and a half? You'd think I'd be worried. But in the end all of the reads mesh together and it all works out. It just makes my writing special to the elite few who read. *winks*

(226 has been popping up everywhere for me in the past two years, and I have no idea why. Maybe I just started noticing it one day?)

On a side note, Unsaid passed Abandoned Aspirations in reads today. I've been waiting forever for that one, it feels like. Now it just has Home Again and the powerhouse one-shots to pass (the icky ones with like a thousand reads; they've been around 2.5 years so I don't blame them).

Latest review = 703 words.



*looks to see who else is rolling their eyes at her*

Because what else would I be doing with my time? =P

Also, giving the first-person take a try on Wreckage. It's turning out much more descriptive and way more effective at presenting info without being an overload. But we'll see. Maybe I'll post excerpts from both versions later.
