Hopes

A Preview.

Here is a preview of  “Irregardless Regardless Regarding Romance”. I’m not sure how well that title works, if at all, but it sounded neat to me when I thought of it at 4 in the morning, so until I think of something better, that’ll have to do.

Anyway,  I hope you’ll enjoy it and come back on the 11th for the rest!

“Are you ready for this?” mused *Jeneveve, a hand resting on her hip as the other toyed with a shiny new dagger bought only that morning from a local street vendor.It was a plain little thing, a black rubber handle and a blade freshly sharpened for the purchase.

“As ready as I’ll ever be.” countered Xora, who raised her arms above her then, towards the heavens, giving her frame a might stretch in preparation for what was to come. Beneath them a bustling, thriving city went about its business as usual. T’was early in the morning still, the warm reds, oranges and pinks of dawn still lingered in the west whilst ever higher the bright orange sun rose higher and higher. It’s magnificent rays burning away the last remains of night while it made its way across the sky.

For several silent minutes the two women looked down over the already bustling morning traffic. Women carting their children down the streets, carriages plodding along over the freshly laid cobblestones, street cleaners milling about, dispersing of the odd clumps of dirt of debris remaining from the previous day whilst also attending to the newly left bits. Vendors were firing up their kiosks and their carts; those that served food had already begun preparing for the traffic by starting their cooking early. Thus by the time the first rays of the sun had started to show, curly tendrils of smoke rose upwards, entering Jeneveve and Xora’s nostrils and causing their mouths to water in simultaneous affirmation of their mutual hunger…

So so so sorry.

SO sorry its been a HELL of a long time. I’ve been busy with stuff around the house and the recent passing of my beloved ferret Ringo.

I do currently have a couple different projects in the works. The first is a new story I’m going to HOPEFULLY be running with more and developing a great deal further. You’ll see that on the 11th, and the second is a (and again I emphasize the word HOPEFUL) revival of  ToTSM on Mondays.

My days off have changed. Whereas Mondays I used to have off regardless and could ensure a chance to post without (much chance of a) distraction, that day now falls on Wednesdays, so I’m not sure where or how it leaves ToTSM showing up on Mondays (regularly), but I’ll try.. I really want to post good stuff, so I hate trying to force out something EVERY Monday and such if ‘it’s’ not there.. But anyway, we’ll see.

I also plan to get back to my ferret book I’m trying to write and illustrate. It’s a children’s book called ‘The Adventures of Faramond the Ferret“(c), I’m really excited for it. I can see how I want it to come out in my head, but its the matter of GETTING that to come out I have issues with. Maybe I should focus on the writing/plotting of it first BEFORE worrying about the illustration part instead of trying to do both at the same time? Sounds reasonable. XD

Anyway, just wanted to give my peeps a heads up and another SORRY for being so absent. I blame it on NaNo *HISSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS*

– S.


NaNoWriMo – Down for the count.

Whelp. I hate my story. Hated writing it this year, got writer’s block more than I can count, but with a lot of work, long nights and zoning/spacing out and listening to rain while I wrote, my current word count is thus: 50473

 

Victory.

 

Next year I’m going to have a different plan of attack. I tried a Steampunk-y story this year and it have me so much trouble, I guess because I’d never done it before. Oh, and despite kind of loving her, I really wound up disliking my heroine. She became one of those independent girls to a fault. Overly stubborn, Hamlet-level second-guessing herself.. And so forth. I mean, I adore her. She’s sassy and smart and such, but what she was so much work to develop. Bad Kathryn, BAD. XD

 

Next year, providing I’m going to do it (never count chickens before they hatch and all. I want to say I’m 75% sure I am, but come this time next year I don’t want to be working my ass off or heavens forbid be sick or some such, et certa) I’m going to do something really fantasy-ish.

 

Possibly a sequel to my first years thing that I never actually finished although I had/have it planned out.

 

Anyway. Carry on.


Gearing up.

Sorry it’s been so quiet lately.I’m trying to mentally gear up for NaNoWriMo *sigh* I bitched and complained about it, but I’m probably going to give it a shot this year. Most because I have something to prove. AND I have a good idea for a story I think.

 

So Stay tuned for that, I’ll probably be posting snippets from it as I write.. Urg. Yay…


A reminder to self.

THIS is really cute. Remind me to give this a whack shortly. Hehe.


After a bit of a break..

I’ve got a couple Mondays lined up. Wednesday is back on track, and I’m still unsure of what will become of Fridays stuff. I may just merge that into Wednesday’s deal, but we’ll see. I’m also contemplating adding a ‘Dream Journal’ of sorts to perhaps take Fridays place. In any event, more content is on the way, so stay tuned! :- )


New News and more news.

 It’s UP. FINALLY!!!!

(Get your mind out of the gutter. Rofl. XD)

Check out this Wednesday’s 15 Minute Writing Exercise!!!

I know it feels like I’ve been letting ya all down with posting schedule, but I have an excuse! XD.

As many of you know, inspiration and the will to write doesn’t always happen ‘on time’, especially if you command it.. There’s been family drama going on, work, stress, life. All those fun things popping up. I’ve been trying, writing bits and pieces here and there, but I promise to try better.

If you have a suggestion for something you’d like to see written about for Guilty Piece of FanFic Friday‘s, let me know and I’ll take a vote.

OHHH! ‘Fore I forget, if you haven’t noticed, I fixed the GPoFF link in the drop down menu. So 2.2 IS there. Have a read. I knew looking at the thing that I had written something afterwards, but couldn’t find it. A bit of sleuthing later and I realized  had number the pages wrong. So, that’s settled if you want to have a gander.

ALSO!!! I’m fairly confident I’m going to have next Monday’s TotTSM up on time for a change! SO check back soon! It’s  extra long to make up for the wait. I hope it’ll make up for my slackerness.

On a side note, I am putting together something kind of nifty I hope to share before long.

Lots of stuff happening. Finally. XD I think this is a product of sleep deprivation and too much caffeine, but I’ll take it!

So. Anyway. Enjoy!!!
