Finished making the caramel apple blondie cheesecake I was working on last week. It was delicious; I ate the last slice for breakfast today (like a grownup.)

Made peach pie, currently cooling.

Regular Thursday worship reminder email.

Conducted straw poll and counted votes at congregational meeting Sunday.

Had lots of ideas for writing and vidding, none of which I implemented.

time to begin procrastinating on NaNo! (I have really low expectations given how very little I've been able to write in the past several years, but I don't have to work so I'm gonna at least pretend to be trying.)

so:

I signed up for [community profile] femslash12.

I can do this. I can write 1000 words. I used to do this all the time. I will have over a month. I can write in any style I want, sparse or lush, sweet or sexy. I can write in a fandom I've written before. I can write it out on paper first or just type it. I can write 1000 words of fiction.
wisdomeagle: (nonconformity)
(via [personal profile] likeadeuce, modified.)

Not that they even live in my head anymore. But go ahead and pick a character and question and we'll see what we can do:

1. How they use social media
2. Weakness
3. Why they love their best friend
4. Last time they cried and why
5. Bodymods they have
6. Favorite Band
7. Biggest turn off(s)
8. Top 5 (insert subject)
9. Bodymods they want
10. Biggest turn on(s)
11. A/S/L (for those of you who don't remember dark ages slang, that's age/gender/location)
12. Ideas of a perfect date
13. Life goal(s)
14. How they describe their style
15. Relationship status
16. Favorite fictional trope
17. A secret
18. Phobia
19. What their Mary Stu/Marty Sue self is like
20. anything you want to ask

(I'm aware I keep tossing memes out there and not necessarily responding. I'm trying really hard to jumpstart the creative part of my brain.

BSC has proven to be one of the best bets; you're welcome to try anything that feels likely -- the Jossverses, RPFy things, Harry Potter... idk.)
wisdomeagle: (Kaylee2)
All right, let's try this.

A continuation of Kayleeverse1000 (where I'm currently at Kayleeverse22)...

drabble requests involving Kaylee Frye. I'm kind of in the mood to write Kaylee does oral on various characters.

So, if that's a thing you might be interested in: Kaylee pairing (trio, etc), one-word prompt, with the understanding that if all goes as planned there will be oral.

*crosses fingers that I can write things*

Yuletide Madness has begun! Huzzah! I already had uploaded 2 stories. Inorite? I haven't published any fanfic in two years, since Yuletide 2009. But this Yuletide will change all that. I will ctrl-f gleefully though the list and somehow find the time to write and the internets access to upload.

And Starbucks opens tomorrow at 8:30. I... will probably be here (as that's where I am now), because presents can, occasionally, get me out of bed.

Will gleee! sometime in the next couple of hours, before Starbucks closes, then head home to write and make myself lovely(ier than usual) for Christmas Eve service. :)
wisdomeagle: (Beka ::facepalm::)
1. So I did indeed check out one of the other sources that my Yuletide recipient requested, and I was quite charmed. Unfortunately, of all the possible stories for that fandom or for the fandom we matched on, the ones that are pinging me hardest are absurd crossover-fusions between the two fandoms that are superficially chronologically compatible, are SO ABSURDLY DIFFERENT IN TONE that crossover-fusions would be... okay, they would be lovely and delightful, and I am absolutely in love with a particular way this could work and have started writing it, and this is why my brain shouldn't be allowed out in public.

2. I broke Rule #1 and read the comments on some trans-related blog posts (not noting which ones, because I know the first thing I would do would be click the link and read the comments, and I don't want to inflict that on anyone else), and now I feel vaguely ill. (DO NOT READ THE COMMENTS, SELF.

3. Meanwhile it's not often that you get two Fridays in one week, but this week is a happy exception (that's my positive spin on having to work today.)
wisdomeagle: (River)
I figured out how, of course, the Much Ado ado can help me finish the Jossverse RPF high school AU that stalled out because I couldn't decide what play they were going to put on.

Good ideas make me tingly. *crosses toes that I'll actually be able to write words*
wisdomeagle: (West Wing)
By me, Ari, aged 7. Written February 11, 1993 - March 25, 1993.

[warnings for being written by a seven year old. Spelling and punctuation have been normalized, except when they're really funny.]

A new President... 100! There are 100 rooms in the white house. 100 is very happy. His family is very happy. 28 ran for president. He is sad before 100 became president. He laid a rose on 10's grave. It was on the [indecipherable] had a wife named Molly.

100 signed a law. 28 got more votes than 100, but 100 got more elecdrol [sic] votes. The law is that bosses have to pay more money to people that have families. And even more money to people that have children. 100 has a daughter named Chelsy. It is Chelsy's birthday. Some people are plotting against 100. Guess what - 28 is one of them! It's in every newspaper. Chelsy was screaming. They tried to get in last night. The Secret Service just barely stopped the. Chelsy has a new bed.

One of the secret service is a spy on 100. He lets the rest of the gang hang out in a room in the white house.

100 couldn't sleep last night. Chelse tiptoed out last night.

Shy caught a spy closing the door. Tonight Chelse got [indecipherable] She hid behind the door.

When the gang came, she listened carefully to what they said. Then she wrote on a piece of paper she brought. They said, "Let's try to get him tomorrow." That was enough. She tiptoed out of the room. The next day she ran to her father's office. She said, "Father, father, today the spies want to get you."

"How did you find out?"

It was too late. A hand reached out for 100!

"I told you, Father," said Celse.

"Do not be afraid," said the Secret Service. spie.

Just then Celse turned around her father was not there.

Molly said she was in the kitchen. So Celsey ran to the kitchen. Where was olly?

There was a note:

Dear Celsey,
I'm at the pool."


Celsey ran to the pool. Just as Celsey was about to warn her, a hand reached out and just like that Molly was gone.

"Yiks [sic]!" she said. She ran back to bed. She hugged her teddy bear and went to sleep. She went out to play with a secret service. All of a sudden Chelsy saw a hole! She looked inside. There was her father and mother. Celsy ran to get the phone. She called the police. The police arrested the bad guys. And lived happily ever after.

P.S.

The bad guys only got ten years of jail. And there was a new president. 15 was her name. And 100 died. 100's grave was in the hole.

15 lived happily as she lived.

[There is not actually a THE END, but I feel there should be. So]

THE END.

That was the first real story I wrote. It took me a whole month and I was really, really proud of it -- other people were journaling to the daily prompts about whatever, but me, I was grinding away on the story of 100 and his daughter Chelsy Celsy Chelsea. I think it's really stood the test of time, don't you?
wisdomeagle: (midnight musings)
Because I am moody and meh.

I plugged "Bridget Jones Cleans All The Things" into the I Write Like meme and got, alas, not Helen Fielding:


I write like
Stephen King

I Write Like by Mémoires, Mac journal software. Analyze your writing!




Amoral Boundaries and Gone Hollywood get me H.P. Lovecraft. My srs bznz fic r horror?

Abby's Hanukkah Tales! gets me P.G. Wodehouse, which is at least the right genre.

Okay then!

Porn Battle 10 is collecting prompts! Woo! I will go leave sexy prompts to cheer self up before church council meeting.

Don't ask about NaNo. Or, ask me about sparkly Lutheran vampires, but don't ask me about wordcount!

I signed up for Yuletide at the very exact last minute, figuring that if I wasn't meant to do Yuletide this year, I wouldn't finish my sign-up in time. Apparently the universe wants more Ari-fic! (Girlfriend says the universe is a better place with more Ari-fic in it, and there certainly hasn't been an abundance of it this year!)

My Yuletide letter is here (Fandoms: Matilda, Beethoven's Last Night, "The Finishing School" by Patrick Califia, and the It Girl series).

I have cramps and they hurt and I'm tired and I can't drink coffee because I just told everyone I was cutting back and I can't go to bed because of my new improved lifestyle plan but my uterus hurts and I need to write Secret Slasha.

Moments later: okay, decided to take Ibuprofin and drink herbal tea and change the pairing of my Secret Slasha story, and all these things are helpful.

So, haz a poll:

[Poll #1318044]

[hey guys, did you know I have a "Calm/meditative" icon? For some reason I rarely use it!]
wisdomeagle: Original Cindy and Max from Dark Angel getting in each other's personal space (Default)
1. I have looked at hundreds of Dear Yuletide Author letters and starred 20 that I might want to try my hand at for Yuletide Treats.

... plus, you know, the one that I need to write for my awesome recipient.

2. NaNo. << shiftyeyes are shifty.

3. Must go to library to return books for self, girl. Also not borrow any more books, because stack is already big enough + NaNo + Sekrit Yuletide Source [unless Sekrit Yuletide Source is a movie, commercial, song, or obscure RPFandom without any canon, in which case, it does not require great outpourings of energy. However if it is comic(s), book(s), or TV show, then will require great outlay of time. Unless it's the BSC, in which case I could whip out 1000 words in half an hour without rereading any of the books (although I would totally reread them anyhow.)]

4. Phone with Elizabeth now. \o/
wisdomeagle: Original Cindy and Max from Dark Angel getting in each other's personal space (Default)
1. My NaNo fail, while not quite epic, is still pretty darned awful. How hard is it to sit down every day and write? Super hard, apparently.

2. I've been looking forward to going to church ALL WEEK! And now I get to go. :)

3. Sadly, I have to put gas in the car first. Grr.

4. Maybe I'll get my butt to a coffeeshop again -- the one where [livejournal.com profile] mayhap and I hung out was nice because there was no tempting, distracting interwebs.

5. My new Indigo Girls CDs rock my world.

6. We watched Dogma last night. Bartleby's rant always makes me tear up:
from IMDb )

Better go now. <3

1. I wish LJ would stop randomly switching my viewing pref to things that aren't Dystopia. *CLINGS okay*

2. I may have signed up for [livejournal.com profile] remixthedrabble a bit ago. I worked on it yesterday -- have completed required assignment, have various ideas for extras. Yay!

3. I registered at NaNoWriMo. I won in 2005 (some of you will remember the gleee! with which I created a novel from nothing in 16 days. If I acquire a job that prevents me from devoting all my time from writing, I am excused. Otherwise, I will be in the 1666/day crowd!

If I could think of a premise that would be nice. (I would say "a plot," but that would be overly optimistic.)

4. Dad emailed me to let me know my birthday package from him and the kidlet has been mailed! :)

5. Um, I used to be really paranoid about casting spoilers but I promise this isn't that kind of spoiler. Still, behind the cut, upcoming guest starrage on network TV: Read more... )

6. I keep on thinking of ridiculous projects that I will definitely neverever actually accomplish. Not that this is news or anything.

Possibly attainable goal: finish writing up 2007-in-fic before it's time for the annual holiday-card-request post.
wisdomeagle: Original Cindy and Max from Dark Angel getting in each other's personal space (Default)
1. I've never written Claudia/Ben proper. I've written them! Together! Flirting and bantering and teasing like crazy and in one case having a previous sexual relationship, but never actually DOING stuff. Just angsting about it or thinking about it or remembering it. And it's like, hey, Invisible Line In The Sand Concerning The Private Lives of Celebrities, there you are! It's been awhile!
2. The wings. How are you supposed to... paste them on? I mean, they are WINGS. WINGS FROM NOWHERE. That's the whole idea! And Claudia would be so pretty with wings. But. WINGS? WHEREFORE WINGS? Stupid magical realism with the magic and the realism.

Unrelated: every time I use this icon I miss [livejournal.com profile] cheese_munkey. Oh, Z., where have you gone?

....!

With huge, huge thanks to [livejournal.com profile] sangerin and [livejournal.com profile] yhlee, my [livejournal.com profile] purimgifts giftlets are COMPLETE. I just emailed them to the mod. Oh my goodness I am so relieved. I have three overdue fics (deep, deep shame), but those are done ON TIME.

I'm not even going to speculate what this means for my mental health. Now is not the time. Now is the time to rejoice, for I will make someone's Purim happy.
wisdomeagle: Original Cindy and Max from Dark Angel getting in each other's personal space (Default)
3:24 am -- 1268 words written. Fic is basically outlined. Watched crucial character episode, now have "Least Complicated" on repeat.

4:27 am -- some # of words written in various scenes. Watching Taray stuff now. Oh, S5!Buffy/Giles, why so awesome? (Dynamic complex and hurty, but mostly -- serious, serious chemistry.) Oh yes. Tara is awesome too.

... in my head Tara has the same birthday as me. (Airdate 11/7 and my birthday is 11/3, so not entirely out of the question!)

5:35 -- BUFFY/GILES. SERIOUSLY. Am watching OMwF and oh, that -- rueful resigned look he gives her in "If We're Together." <3<3<3<3<3<3.

Have I ever mentioned I love this show a lot?

6:02 am -- hi Joss. I love OMWF but do you know that "Standing" practically reduced me to tears? Oh, favorite song ever. What's yours? )

7:07 am: Also, I made myself an icon.

There are about 3500 words in the .txt, but a lot of them are outliney stuff, not publishable words. Must drink more coffee and try to write seriously. Seriously!
