Finishing Season

Seems to be the time of year for finishing stuff up. I'm 1500 words away from the end of Clockwork Souls and I've just-last-night reached an ending for my fanfic, Crime and Punishment.

I'm going to ponder which fanfic I'm doing next because I can't not write. There's a few juicy ideas I have excerpts for. I just need to pick the shiniest one.

Announcements when that happens, of course.

Today's another cleaning day, and having our new toy means that all the un-used cooking scrattle from Monday is still chilling on my kitchen counters by Thursday.

Plus side: less to wash up.

Minus side: It's criminally obvious how lazy we all are.

Whoops.

Tomorrow, I write the last words in this novel, and then begin a week off to just fart around with my family before I start the next novel. Ahead of my schedule.

Three cheers for shiny ideas, I guess. This way if I'm slowed down by some incapacity, I still have all that buffer time to work with. Huzzah.

I just wish I'd kept track of how much. Probably a good idea that I didn't. Don't want to give myself conniptions if I know how much time I have in my "bank". Panicking over whatever never improves the situation, and letting myself relax is inevitably for the best.

Today's "whatever" between this upcoming Blast and the next one is definitely going to be "posting a chapter of fanfic" so those of you who follow me on AO3 look out. Good stuff incoming.

I feel so productive this morning.

::Evil Laugh::

Today's the day. I posted that chapter of Random Encounters and the angst floweth deep in the comments section, oh boy.

They'll forgive me at chapter twenty-four.

I didn't get 1K in, yesterday. And rather than punishing myself for that, I decided to give myself an 'out'. I write a minimum of five hundred words. 1K is the 'bonus points' goal for the day. And it may be more merciful on my wrists over time.

I have noticed a twinge or two

Planning for fun

I have been writing some funny fucking stuff, but it's not ready for publication, yet. I have some scenes of chaos to do.

And probably a lot more chaos, yet.

I'm having huge amounts of fun. Listening to the Adventure Zone and powering through the ad breaks so I can listen to more Adventure zone and get inspiration points for the five fucking stories I have going with NO END IN SIGHT...

Yeah, I fell of the self-limit wagon again. Stop looking

Challenge #01750-D289: Confessions at a Bus Stop

Writer caught doing research, then realises 'captive audience'. -- Anon Guest

Officer René wasn't intending to be on duty. They were just chilling near the bus stop and not paying attention to anything much. Someone was already under the shelter and working on their laptop.

And then they heard the words, "No... that's too much decapitation. Uh... pierced jugular. Slow. Plenty of signs of blood spatter."

There are some things you hear that you're better off walking away from. There are some

my-own-little-nerd-paradise:

“I am a writer” I say as I’m staring at the blank piece of paper for hours.

“I love writing” I say, grinding my teeth and breaking my pencil in half.

“Writing keeps me sane” I say, laughing like a maniac and spinning my head around 360 degrees while climbing up the wall.

Ancient Alphabets.

Thedan Script - used extensively by Gardnerian Witches
Runic Alphabets - they served for divinatory and ritual purposes, as well as the more practical use; there are three main types of Runes; Germanic, Scandinavian/Norse, and Anglo-Saxon and they each have any number of variations, depending on the region from which they originate 
Celtic and Pictish - early Celts and their priests, the Druids, had their own form of alphabet known as “Ogam Bethluisnion”, which was an extremely simple alphabet

internutter said: D'you ever cackle in a witchlike manner as you come up with plotlines? I'd love to know if I'm not alone.

sketchypandagames:

This is basically me when I write ALL the time. And sometimes when I wandering around in public and an idea comes to me.

Also, I’ve committed to post of a video of me impersonating Rumple if we successfully fund, so if that doesn’t get people to follow us, nothing will.

Firkin rheumatism...

Yesterday afternoon, I did something awful to my left wrist as part of my everyday writing regime. No big problem, I put my one remaining thermal elastic ‘sock’ bandage over it and thought no more about it.

And I forgot to take it off when I went to bed.

That little fucker rolled up on my wrist and caused some more painful damage to my left wrist that now means I can’t do anything without encountering excruciating pain.

A majority of
