I rearranged my desk area again tonight. Now that I have a small screen, it's much easier! The problem has been that when I'm sitting on the couch and want to watch Netflix, the screen is too high and I get that negative feedback where black should be. Now I have a place to put the screen so that it's at the right level. I've been watching Stargate: SG-1 lately, trying in vain to catch up with all my friends at [livejournal.com profile] stargateland and [livejournal.com profile] sgoc. Right now I'm watching Season 1, Episode 12 - The Nox. I really like Episode 10 The Torments of Tantalus (and need to make myself an icon of some sort that says "Kathryn agrees" because that phrase just tickled me) and Episode 8 Cold Lazarus (because it was interesting watching O'Neill being very O'Neill-like.

And now on with the Daily Writing Meme:

8. What's your favorite genre to write? To read?

You knew what you wanted to be when you saw someone else being it. -Kelley Eskridge )

I have one completed story for my [livejournal.com profile] whedonland Heart of Gold project. There's another one safely in my notebook but it's not complete and it's turning rather... epic. Part of my problem is that I'm bringing in several different people so I have to tell their stories. It's been in my head for several weeks now but I just started the actual writing a couple of days ago. Not bad for something I've known about for a month. Why, oh why, do all the good ideas come right at the cusp of the deadline!?! I'm thinking it will just be the "back story" and kind of leave it at "And they lived happily ever after..." which is horrid but I don't have the kind of time I really need. I'm sure it's going to work out.

Now I'm hoping to get to the MBB possibilities in September. Who cares that it's due the 10th. Not me. The stupid story keeps rewriting itself every thousand words or so. I'm too fluttery to work on that many words right now. *sigh*

Now, on to the real reason you're here.

7. Do you listen to music while you write? What kind? Are there any songs you like to relate/apply to your characters?

It is not labor that kills but the small attritions of daily routine that wears us down. -Roy Bedicheck )

6. Where are you most comfortable writing? At what time of day? Computer or good ol' pen and paper?

The Golden Rule is of no use to you whatever unless you realize it is your move. -Frank Crane )

5. By age, who is your youngest character? Oldest? How about “youngest” and “oldest” in terms of when you created them?
Millions long for immortality who do not know what to do with themselves on a rainy Sunday afternoon. -Susan Ertz )

3. How do you come up with names, for characters (and for places if you're writing about fictional places)?
I am a little pencil in the hand of a writing God who is sending a love letter to the world. -Mother Teresa )

So I did a bad thing...



I only picked up about 10 prompts which means I'll only write about 5 but I don't have time for this! Why don't I have time for this? What's out of whack that I don't have time to write random drabbles? It's like people who don't have time to spend with their children!

Two of my larger projects have been moved back but that still means I need to be working on them! Rewrote the first 1000 words or so of the first part of the Marauders fic. Don't think I'm going to make the deadline but I want to try. I'm not getting art for this big bang but I want to make this into a story that is GOOD. Thinking about putting it into better accessible chapters and posting it slowly. The key to this is that it'll be done (or close to it). That'll be a good thing, don't you think? An ending...

Heart of Gold for [livejournal.com profile] whedonland has been moved back a week but I'm getting kinda pissed that they told us that there would only be game challenges (or that's what I read it as) and the first one was THE HARDEST I'VE DONE IN A VERY LONG TIME. Grrr... it's not a lie but it wasn't much of the truth. You know?

Have a couple of challenge fics coming due. My goal is to have an opening in September for Keladra. I need some space to put things down on paper and get my feet wet. Right now, it's what I plan on doing for NaNo. The idea keeps expanding while it's in my head, which is a good thing, so I don't think I'll have a problem writing 50k of the world. November is still a long, long way away, though.

Everyone is doing the 30 Days of something Meme these days and I haven't found that I really wanted to do. Plus, I don't get on everyday. Today, while looking through [livejournal.com profile] medie's journal after I worked my way through the challenge prompts, I found this one so...

30 Days of Writing
...the questions... )

++++

You know what else I need to do? I really need to update my Archive of Our Own journal. It's going to be a bear if I don't get to it soon!
