It’s been a while since we last spoke, hasn’t it? It’s my fault, really. I’ve not been writing like I should, and I’ve been calling in to question my devotion to be a writer.
Don’t worry, the blog isn’t ending. I’m just having an emo moment or two. As you read this, I’m probably landing in LaGuardia (if my flight hasn’t been delayed) since I’ll be in Staten Island for a wedding this weekend. Go me.
I can’t say for certain when I’ll be updating again. I do have stuff written, but it’s nothing I would post here. I hate the way I write NSFW scenes, and all of it is NSWF. Perhaps I’ll fix that one day, but I am FAR too shy to try.
Again, I’m sorry I haven’t been posting, but I figured I owed you guys and gals an update.
Thanks for reading. Maybe my confidence will come back soon.
There’s a few things going on that have started to interfere with my schedule. We’re apartment hunting, the roommate is graduating soon, and we might have a second roommate join us soon. So that posting schedule I had has gone out the window. Updates are going to be sporadic for the next few weeks, possibly more. I’ll see if I can have something up by Friday, but I make no promises.
Sorry for the late notice. I’m usually more active on twitter or tumblr since they don’t require much effort.
First, its problems with my car; got that fixed thanks to a bailout from the bank of Mom. Then MORE problems with the car (bad sensor) which also got fixed. Then the PARENTS have massive problems with one of their cars and both computers, which resulted in a new engine, catalytic converter, a new desktop, and a new laptop.
Windows 8 and old people get along surprisingly well.
So I’ve had a busy week. The rest of today and tomorrow aren’t looking too good either, but next week looks better.
We’ll get back to our regularly scheduled programming on Monday. In the meantime, have a picture of an Eastern Screech Owl (Grey Morph) that was chillin’ out underneath my parent’s porch.
Mine started out with the catalytic converter being stolen out of my car last Saturday. Hence no post on Monday. All I wanted to to on Saturday was eat some goddamn Chinese food, play Xbox, and have a relaxing weekend.
No. I was not allowed to. Instead, I spent the rest of the weekend and into Monday at my parents house (hence no blog post). I’ve at least managed to procure a very swanky rental car on Wednesday so I have transport until my car is fixed.
Thank you, insurance company for being awesome.
I’ll make it up to you with a 3-a-week update starting this coming Monday. I’ll run it for two/three weeks since I’ve crapped out on you guys for that long. But for now, have a conversation with aliens. Continue reading →
Good lord, I keep forgetting to update this. I am a horrible, forgetful person.
Here’s kind of an update on what’s been happening (nothing major, I swear):
Reworking: I’ve been r-working some characters in my major story (that’s still untitled) and in my minor story of Atlanta. I’ve changed some things around, edited their back stories and decided to NOT reinvent the wheel (although that is fun to do).
Retooling: Speaking of wheels, I finally settled on a place to put everyone (yay!). I’ve also kind of figured out a time line for the overall story, and a back story that leads into the main story (again, yay!)
Rewriting: I like my beginning, but it needs some help to be less… fanfic-y sounding. I’m also trying to flesh out the characters a little bit more, give them some motivation behind their actions, and answer the ever burning question: why should Anya leave the farm? (Just don’t do it like Dorothy did.)
So that’s been it on my end of things. I’ve been super forgetful this past week, but I’ll have another blog up on Friday. My aim is to get back on track with updates and keep writing (obviously). I’ve been getting a little bit better about not playing the Xbox and spending all of my time on tumblr.
Not that I’ve been spending all of my time on tumblr.
I was going to try and get sprints together for this week and next, but that is not happening. With Christmas next week, and several other things happening all at once, I won’t have enough brain power to get something together for those days, so we’re gonna take a small break.
Blog posts will resume on January 7th. Until then, Happy Holidays and have an awesome New Years!
Happy Thanksgiving to all of my American readers. And Happy Thursday for the rest of you non-Americans.
Unless your across the international dateline. In which case, HAPPY FRIDAY!
As you may have noticed, there have been no posts this week. By the end of this week, I’ll have worked a good 50-60 hours this week, and will be very tired. Next week is not looking much better with 40+ hours. In between that, I have something to finish up before the December 1 deadline. Yay over time and writing, but boo a very tired me. Motivation will be hard to come by to write for fun.
Posts might resume on Monday, they might not. My life is a tad bit crazy so I’ll resume when I can, but I’m hoping for regular updates at least sometime in the near future.
I make no promises! Have a wonderful rest of the week, I will see you… at some point.
