rambling hereCollapse )


Goal for the weekend: 
Wave one: 2000 more words
Wave two: Outline, shoot for 1000 more words (and maybe you'll get some cake, Si, just think about that)

IN OTHER NEWS, I'm fucking done with this stupid wart on my finger. Looked up some home remedies since I'm po' as fuck. I think a cheap bottle of vinegar would be a much easier burden than fucking Freez-Off, so I'll snag some of that when I get  the chance. I've made a little notie-poo on my laptop (I fucking love sticky notes like whoa). This whole paragraph is so random. I just don't want to go to bed.

DABB Wave One word count: 2600

Chugging along at a nice pace. I don't write every day, but when I do...It's quite nice. Just kind of writing bare-bones, lay down the plot sort of thing right now. I can always go back later to flower up (or flower down) dialogue, insert internal dialogue and develop characterization later. Anders' parts in particular are a little generic. Merrill's seem to be coming along nicely, though, but she's rambley, and I'm rambley, so I guess it works out. 

For a while I had wondered if this story could even make it to 10k, but then I realized that Merrill plays a very important role, and she will have a lot of bits from her point of view. And she's rambley. So, no probs there. 

Meanwhile. I saw The Amazing Spiderman yesterday, and dear gods, I loved it. More than I thought I would. But now all the little lizards in my area look so suspicious. >> <<

SO. I've recently added some people through dragonagebb and so I'll just say HAI EVERYONE. I don't post too much, and journal very little (though during the BB I may be posting more). Mainly just fic stuff. Sometimes rants. 

My first idea for the BB didn't pan out as soon as I started researching it. XD I didn't know the Fog Warriors were human. I thought they were kossith. I mean, Fenris mentions how he learned all about qunari culture while he was with the Fog Warriors, so I just assumed they were kossith. I STAND CORRECTED I GUESS. 

But that's okay, I have the tendrils of another idea forming in the squishy meats inside my skull. Either way, it'll probably end up being an Anders fic. Most likely. Or I might save that for Wave Two, if I decide on that, and instead go with some Varric/Merrill friendfic. WHICH WILL BE CUTE, DAMMIT. 

If I seem excessive in the ALL-CAPS tonight, it's late and I spend like an hour in two creepyposts on ohnotheydidnt so I'm full of creeped-out adrenaline. Good thing I have tomorrow off. >> <<

NOW THEN. I should get to actually working on my fics. Just talking about it won't get it written.

So I've currently signed up for Wave One of the dragonagebb, and I am damn excited. I have a story idea, the means to complete it, and the best part, is that it only has to be 10,000 words. And it's due like two or so months from now. I've done NaNoWriMo. This'll be a cake walk. 

I'm just glad that this started just as I've been finding ways to literally inject this fandom into my brain. I love everything that is Dragon Age, and I'm so pissed at myself for taking forever to get into Dragon Age 2 because it's fucking revolutionized my life. Well, not that dramatic, but I really really really love it, to the point that it irks pickgoldies which is always a good thing. Sort of. 

I'm not too sure if I want to sign up for Wave Two, though (20,000 words), simply because I'll be working on it during the school semester, and since I'll have that and work, I dunno if I'll have the time for it. We'll see how this goes.

Erg, there's a storm rolling through town right now, complete with torrential downpour, a light show and Thor's chariot raising hell and shaking the earth. I'm deathly afraid of thunder, and I want to crawl into an underground, rubber-insulated bunker right now. ;-; There's also flash flood and tornado warnings all over the place. Many people had funneling clouds, some saw a few touch-downs and holy fuck, it's crazy shit. 

Hoping, at least, for a slow and relaxing day at work tomorrow.

Spent a good part of the day assembling my new desk, which we're going to use as an entertainment center. It looks fantastic! We also now have a couch, which makes the ottoman much more practical....And Pickutsu just jumped from ottoman onto desk. Oh lawd.

It's nice to actually have furniture now. Even though my dining table is covered in stuff atm, I still grin every time I look at it. Because it's mine (well, and pickgoldi too, since we did buy it together, and we're also basically married so). Same with this couch, and the desk in front of me. We bought it with our own money, and we own it. I feel so...adult. I AM ADULT. I HAVE THE POWERRRR.

Well, time certainly has gotten away from me. 

Among the usual IRL stuff (including getting a second job, fuck yeah), I've been kind of writing. Sort of. Well, I've planned a lot. And since I didn't do NaNo this year, I'mma try and see if I can take on MarNoWriMo. Yes, with my busy schedule. I AM AWESOME AND I WILL PREVAIL. I even have at least two story ideas I can use, one a Phantom of the Opera fanfic and the other a piece of original fiction. 

You can do this, Si. It's only ~1800 words a day. They don't even all have to be real ones! And you can vent all your frustrations here! LET'S HAVE FUN AND NOT GO MAD WITH POWER, OKAY?
