Nanowrimo, Day 11: Somehow most of what I've written today is either Crowley and Icarus talking, or Crowley and Icarus talking in the past. I'm trying to figure out what the hell these two have plotted but they're not talking. So Crowley's coming to the camp. Because of reasons. I don't know what's going on anymore. And there's still a demon attack to write, an angsty couple of Steve-memories, and, oh yeah, the angels to find and do something plotty to. And Kezef needs more page-time. I can't even.

Nanowrimo, Day 10: I've got down most of Crowley's bits of dialogue (expositionexpositionexposition) but need to fill in the gaps with whatever Icarus and Dean might say. I'm behind on the word count by 280 words, but it's just not happening tonight.

Nanowrimo, Day 9: \o/ Finally got to introduce Crowley. Saving most of the snark for tomorrow (broken up with a scene of Kezef), but I think I'm going to enjoy this next bit. There's a lot going on and Crowley's going to be exposition man. Or, more realistically, "Oops, you didn't want them to know that, did you? Oh dear, angel, whatever are you going to do."

Just barely over today's word count. I need to get a good head start this weekend. Why does Novemeber have to end on a week-day?

Everything not Nanowrimo: On hold. I have so many open tabs and links saved it scares me to think about it. (To say nothing of the week of LJ that I'm behind on.) Also all the reactions and feelings to all the shows have to be expressed. I also have emails and replies pending. I have not forgotten about any of this.

Nanowrimo Day 5: I've written 2,986 word today. Catch-up is murder. I've written two italics scenes (i.e. random little one shots), a kissing scene, a plotting scene... Oh gods. Tomorrow I'm hopefully reaching a fun bit and introducing a snarky character. But for now, I will go die over in that corner.

Day 2: More teeth-pulling. It's starting to take shape - at the very least, there's a few things planned for the immediate future. Had a wonderful epiphany that cleared up something I hadn't known since Time 1 way back in 2009. I finally know why Icarus left the camp - MIA - a week before he fell. The fact that this epiphany means I'm going to be writing Crowley makes it pretty awesome. Now, if only I can figure out just how to bring that all in...

Day 1: Pulling teeth. I have no idea where this is going. I have tiny little benchmarks like "Oh, and then these two talk!" and "The fence has to be warded!" and... I got nothing.

Fortunately, I've got [livejournal.com profile] seschat at my back. ♥

During the brief moments when I haven't been working or lying in bed cursing a cold, I've been watching television. Have some comments on that, because apart from writing some Time drabbles (and there's some Chip/Icarus there for you, [livejournal.com profile] seschat), I've got nothing new.

I had every intention of making a post today - well, a proper one, this one doesn't count - but since today's been crap, that plan's been scrapped. Besides, I haven't done much today: went to work, was cold, put subtitles on a documentary all day, Tumblred, was bored, was even more cold, had lunch with people (even through I was a social-anxiety-cat all the way and besides, no one talked to me, not really), was attacked by dodos (i.e. massive wibbles for no reason), was cold, went home, went to the park to knit (for some strange reason), went home again, was even more cold, obsessively organized my hundreds of GIFs into fandom folders (because' I'm that kind of crazy), wrote this crap.

And now, The Walking Dead! And hopefully my fingers and toes will stop aching in my barely-nineteen-degrees room with a goddamn breeze. I am so cold.

I am bloody freezing - at home, at the office, in my bed. It's nineteen degrees in my room and my balcony doors believe in breezes. *shakes fist*

I'm trying to post more often, namely so that I don't drown in links, but also because I just seem to have lost the habit of writing shit down. I've been using the same diary since 2007, for example.

A person who feels lonely regardless of if she is at a family gathering, with friends, or alone is experiencing chronic loneliness. It does not matter what goes on in the surrounding environment, the experience of loneliness is always there.

Hello, dolls! I'm back, although Ye Great Retelling of my vacation will have to wait until I go through the hundreds of photos and all that fun stuff. Short version is I went to Vienna, Prague and Budapest and it was glorious \o/

As a result of all that, though, I'm now a bit swamped in all my projects and behind on all things fandom, although as you can tell from the LotD, I'm trying to catch up.

At work today I came across two articles which were upsetting for a number of reasons. Background information for the amnesiacs and newcomers: I spent four months tracking lions in Amboseli, namely five radio-and-GPS-collared ones, which means that for four months I saw them nearly every day and learned about their lives and prides and then analyzed the shit out of everything.
