Pieces of Me

October 30th, 2006 (10:04 am)
awake

current mood: awake

Torchwood was good last night. Now begins the race between empressvesica to get hold of Torchwood, while I desperately seek out the Amazing Race. *grin* Must do a proper post on this season soon enough - it's probably the best designed one I've seen so far.

Sorta saved the extra hour in bed from when the clocks changed yesterday for today. Something comforting about being able to roll over, blearily remember it's Monday and stay in bed that much longer. Totally planned, and not because I got up yesterday and stumbled around for an hour before realising. Nope. No way.

Need to get myself back into the writing groove again. Part of me keeps eyeing NaNo cos I seem to work well on ficathons with deadlines, but that's something I've never done before. Does it have to be original fiction, or can you just work on a massive fanfic instead?

Halloween event is almost over on City Of Heroes/Villains. Somehow managed to hit the rarest monster spawn three times in a row last night, and was able to switch between different alts in time to be able to grab the kill on each.

Coffee is good.

Studio 60 Cancellation Imminent. Booooooo!

I know of at least one person who's doing fanfic for her NaNo (and another one who's planning on writing her thesis that way), so I would say that you can do pretty much what you want.

text//busy reading fanfic - martoufmarty

I'm planning on doing fic for NaNo this year - tried original writing last year and only just managed to hit the 10,000 mark before I gave up.

So long as you believe what you are writing is a novel/novella it doesn't matter if it's established characters - at least that's how I understand it.

Pwned (Rose and Sarah Jane)

And it's 50,000 words in a month, right?

Ooooo.... I might re-write the Twelve Days ones I lost in the computer wipe, or the Faith and Giles at the Museum one, or the big Season 5 re-write/Stargate crossover....

Okay, NOW I get all the plot bunnies spawning again. Where were they for the last few months, huh?

faith//million lies - me

'tis indeed. Works out at just under 2000 a day I think.

I've been sitting on the bunny for this for about three months now - hardest thing ever not to just sit down and write the damn thing. :)
