1) I finally got to watch Toy Story 3 yesterday. Not gonna lie, I cried at the end. I mean, I was straight up boo-hooing. It was an excellent movie, by far my favorite out of the three.

2) Out of boredom, I watched Tyler Perry's "Daddy's Little Girls" Saturday night. I have to say, it was much better than I thought it would be, though some of Tyler's "issues" with black women (particularly those who are educated) were still present. Still, not nearly as much misogyny as "Why Did I Get Married?" (I didn't bother watching the sequel, ugh), and the plot, though a bit weak and cliche in parts, was far more decent than some of the things he's come out with.

Speaking of Tyler Perry and black women, I still haven't decided whether or not to see "For Colored Girls". I mean, the cast is excellent (and it's sad that Tyler Perry is one of the ONLY people giving black actors/actresses of this caliber work), and I know he is only adapting the work from someone else, but I don't know. I have a habit of walking away from his movies pissed off.

3) My NaNo fic is stalled. I decided to start late, and did not have time to plan it out accordingly. I still have time to at least get it up to 50k (it stands at 22k right now), but if I don't like where it is heading, what's the point?

I've been sick all week with whothefuckknows (I don't have health insurance, so it's not like I can pop up into the doctor's office and find out). I even missed much of Thanksgiving (I did cook, but I did not eat anything until late that night and spent most of the day in bed).

On the plus side, it's a good thing I hit my NaNoWriMo goal last week, or I would have failed immensely. I only wrote like 3000 words this week, LOL.

Speaking of writing, Suitors does not like me very much right now. I'm being pulled into two different plot directions, both of which are interesting.

ALSO, CAUSE I FEEL LIKE ADVERTISING THIS SHIT - [livejournal.com profile] capslock_kkm IS GOING TO DO FML WEDNESDAYS FOR THE MONTH OF DECEMBER, PLUS A GIF/MACRO PARTY TO RING IN THE NEW YEARS IS IN THE PLANS. HEADS UP. EITHER I OR [livejournal.com profile] chicki_marshies WILL MAKE THE INITIAL POST ON WEDNESDAYS (AROUND 7 PM EASTERN STANDARD TIME). FROM THERE, TAKE AN ICON OF A KKM CHARACTER AND USE IT WHILE POSTING A FML-STYLE POST ABOUT THEM.

Boo-yah!

I hit the 50k mark on Friday, btw.

This has truly been fun for me. My novel is not finished, so I'm still writing (I've decided to hit the goal every day until Nov 30th, who knows I might even hit 75k). I managed to complete something this long (LOL I'm always giving up on things).

More thoughts behind the cut )
shazafram: (Default)
As of Saturday (it's Sunday here right now, lol), this week I clocked in at 17,991 words this week, which is less than twenty words more than last week.

Total NaNoWriMo count is:



35,970! Who would have thought I could write that much? LOL I didn't.

It's funny, though. I'm not completely in love with this plot, but I'm in love with the characters that keep popping up. I still haven't done any character sheets, but it's alright. Every time I'm writing a scene with one of them, I throw in an aspect of their personality.

Which reminds me: guess which KKM character unintentionally showed up in one of my characters? Three hints:

1) It's a he.
2) He is very possessive (hyuk hyuk hyuk).
3) He is not Wolfram.

Who's that man? )

Well, I'm finished with this week's NaNo. Total week count from Sunday to Saturday is:

17,979

Current count (this updates when I update, I think?):


I surprised myself!

My daily goals have been 1) hit the daily goal for NaNo (1667.7777777whatdafuckever) and 2) finish a chapter a day (my chapters are short).

Breakdown on words a day, and discoveries about myself )

All in all, it's been a fun week so far. I haven't pushed myself too much, and I have set limits. For example, instead of playing Tropico like I want to (the old one - I still love that game so very much. One of these days I'm going to get a new computer that's able to run the new one. One of these days...) I wrote chapter 7.

I'll post an update next week! ♥

National Novel Writing Month

Anyone doing it this year?

I'm thinking about doing it with original fiction.
shazafram: (Default)
I finished my Wolfram x Murata TAATS fic! OMGOMGOMG, I'm extremely happy!

I'm especially happy because I have a bad habit of starting something, but not finishing it. I have been that way all of my life, and to know I can change this late in the game makes me feel so very happy.

It's also motivation to finally start seriously working on the book idea I've had for some years. It's different from fan fiction considering I have to take the time, invent and develop the characters, and create completely different scenes and back stories -- but I am much more motivated than I was before.

After this, I think I'm going to take the time and finish up a few sequels I've been tossing around (namely the sequel to the Wolfram x Saralegui "1 Up"), as well as plot out a fic involving Conrad and Wolfram. I'm going to see how Season 3 ends before tossing around the idea of a new Wolfram x Yuuri fic.

Sidenote: I was LOLLING something hard when my 6-year old was watching the news (she insists on seeing the weather every night -- WTF?), and this lady was spelling something. She pronounced "R" "arrrrrrrrugh" all long and pirate-like, and my daughter said "Girl, you're too old to be saying it like that! It's 'are'". I'm still laughing. She is a trip, journey, and safari rolled into one.

It's interesting, really. I've managed to fall somewhat back into the Batman fandom and fall somewhat out of the KKM fandom within the past week. WTF self?

Maybe it's because of the month-long KKM hiatus (LOL, it's only been one week), and the fact that the Dark Knight movie is coming out (as well as my having watched the Gotham Knights DVD shorts -- which were awesome btw)? I don't know. Or maybe I'm coming down from my new fandom high?

I still have a few fics I want to finish up however. Pretty much done with the Wolfram x Murata fic, just going back and hashing out a few things now (and inserting a crucial character that I totally did not intend to leave out). My Wolfram x Saralegui sequel is on hiatus because it seems forced (in other words, it's not coming together well for me right now -- for some reason it's starting to lose its lightheartedness, which is what I don't want). Also, my Wolfram x Yuuri "very unusual" mpreg fic will never see the light of day... >_>; I'd sooner post my Wolfram x Yozak one... D: I also have a Wolfram x Murata short that I have no clue what to do with... *sigh* I might insert it as "back story" for the long MuraWolf fic... It could explain the "moment" they started to... um... connect?

Also, I still haven't posted anything to my Detective Conan Fanfic 100 claim. I finished one, but I don't know, I don't think it's up to par enough to post. I have, however, started back working on "One Truth, Countless Lies". I had plotted that out months ago, and if I knew what I do now I would have written the bulk of it before posting any of it (I've found I work better that way).

One more thing: I wrote my first original short story -- I may post that after I rework it some. I've also been creating characters for an original (long) story I've been planning for about a year now -- I've written the "prologue" to that. I'm a late bloomer to writing, however -- so I'm still learning about characterization, etc. You're never too old to learn is my motto!
