It's taken me longer than normal to do the goals post for 2015. The large part of this is that I've been sick. In fact, I'm sick again as I write this. However, this too, shall pass, and it's time to get busy.

so, it's been a while since i've updated.  partially, i've been just kind of tired lately, and partially, not much to say. 

today i have stuff to say )

and that's the state of me, today.  tired, but content, angsty but staying with it.

you know you're in the spotlight when... a trip up the stairs into an airplane generates an AP story.  sheesh.  i know it's Ms. Clinton, but really?  are we *that* hard up for political news?  i didn't think so.

i dream of Ghostriders and Wen Specer's Ukiah Oregon cross-overs... )

and then i had to quickly jump out of bed, because i'd slept longer than usual!

and now, i'm poking at Farad, because i seem to remember her telling me she has an idea for my Green Day universe, and she hasn't written it yet, and i still want to read it.  Farad, what say you?

sooo.... the last little bit of editing i kept trying to do on Green Day, at Farad's suggestion, was to take a tighter POV on Vin during his session with Dr. Will, so we could see his emotions and how he was reacting.  i don't disagree with Farad's suggestion, it's entirely possible that the section could be fleshed out and intensified a bit.  BUT, i came up blank for two whole weeks - no ideas, no inspiration, no nothing.

at the end of the day, i think that's the sticking point - i think that what's been 'holding me up' on editing that bit is that really, the story 'feels done'.  i don't think i can write on it anymore, whether or not it could be improved.  so, it's there, it's finished, it's complete. 

i will do one more spelling/ grammar/ punctuation edit on it this weekend, then i will post it here, and the corrected version at D'n'F. (i need to get together with Charlotte to see how to edit the entry there.)

now, here's the deal:  i am honestly grateful to everyone's comments who've been following along as i posted the WIP version of Green Day.  it's been wonderful to see everyone comment, and know that i'd have a chance to react to and edit with suggestions from those comments.  but when i post the final version, i'm going to close the WIP posts to commentary.  they'll still be publicly available, so people can see them and *read* the comments - i'm just going to lock the comments down. 

new comments should be posted to the finalized version, and i shall be very grateful to have them there. 

again, i want to thank everyone for coming along on the ride with me, and i hope the finalized version of Green Day meets or exceeds all your expectations.

so... i've written roughly another 2000 words on Seventh Gift, and keep having little scenarios and scenes pop into my head as i wonder just how long it's going to be.  (it would be rather ironic if it turns out to be 30,000 words on the dot, and if that happens, i'm going to be seriously tempted to do some editing on my tenses to make the sections reflect the section headings....)  but Green Day, which just needs one last bit of editing done before i re-post it in it's final version, appears to be temporarily stalled.  i know this is because farad asked me what Vin was feeling in Dr. Will's office, and said that i needed to show that better.  i don't disagree, but ACK! feelings!  i'll trade you several emo tears if you just let me write about number line theory, really!

and even that reaction is strange, because i attempt to write each story in a style that will evoke a particular emotion in the readers, and if the feedback i'm getting is any indication, i'm doing fairly well at that.  not that i don't have a lot to learn, but that for where i'm at writing-wise, i'm managing to evoke the reactions i want fairly consistently.

but yeah.  i really, really want to finish Green Day, because i'm *so close*, and don't feel like i can do the christmas story in my werewolf AU or the meta inspired by farad's editing commentary on Green Day, even though i don't *have* to wait, in a technical sense.  it's just, i have this little list, and i totally can't move on to those smaller pieces until i finish the 'big piece' of Green Day, and it's kind of driving me batty.  and it's driving me batty that i'm pulling a blank on something i really should be able to add to Green Day quite easily. 

does anyone else's writing habits occasionally drive them around the bend?  why or why not?

A/N:  Yay, I'm finally done! Well, I'm done with the rough draft, anyway.  I hope you all enjoy this, and I hope you all enjoy the re-write when I get to post it around Christmas/ New Years (if all goes well, that is).  On with the show. -bs

A/N:  Yay!  I'm almost finished with the rough draft!  One more conversational sequence to go, and it'll be done.  OTOH, I have serious problems when trying to write dialog - but I don't want to talk about it. >:-)

Part 3b/3 )

boogieshoes: (Default)

A/N: This is a big author's note for me, so I'm putting it up top this time.  This little piece is kind of a teaser to incite excitement and give me a chance to repost the URLs to previous parts for everyone to refamiliarize themselves with this universe.  I continue to work on Green Day's 3rd section, and I'm literally a scenelet and a bunch of dialog away from finishing. 

What I really want to emphasize is that the current 'Part 3' is a Rough Draft Ending - depending on comments from betas and other consultants, I may end up heavily revising Part 3 for the final version.  But I wanted to stick this up here for a couple of reasons:  to encourage *myself* to continue all the way to the end, and to re-assure readers that I haven't forgotten this piece.  I know at least one person would like to see the end of this piece before she starts on her own story in this AU, and so I want to finish the rough draft version by the end of October so she can start/ write/ finish her story with a clear understanding of the tone and style I'm hoping to set up here.  

Now, on with the show:

dude, i get so creative in titles, and then am so mundane in the post entry.... anyway, three bullet points today:

*the house.  i went to see the house from yesterday.  the house itself is every bit as cute as advertised.  the neighborhood didn't give me warm fuzzies though.  turns out i'd been there before on a previous house-hunting expedition a couple of years ago, and it still looked like a major disaster area.  even if that area didn't flood from katrina, i know it got major amounts of wind damage - you could just see it.  they've made a lot of improvements since then, but literally, right across the street was an abandoned house with broken windows.  um, no.  there were a lot of houses that showed pride of place, but there were enough houses that just looked like crap that it was an instant turn-off.

i'm going this afternoon/ evening to the carolton (?) area, which is across gause from Momma Tegan's place.  it's a bit more upscale than Tegan's neighborhood, i think.  i know there were some listings there in my price range, though, and it's worth checking out.  this weekend, i may go past 433 to look in that area.  we'll see.

*the Wii-fit.  finally got onto the Wii again last night, and felt less guilty. :-p  it tells me i've lost 9lbs in 7 days - i'm not sure i believe it, but oh, well, the point is to do it.  i did the long run (very pretty) and almost didn't make it, heh.  also did the kundalini breathing and the warrior pose yoga stuff.  i've got more options in the yoga section, but i'm not really balanced-enough for 'em.

* Green Day fic... got in touch with badgersathome yesterday who assures me he got the file i sent, he's just painting.  i assured him that i'm all cool with that, to take the time he needs to get around to my fanfic, i was just worried because gmail and yahoo don't always play nicely together.  badgersathome says at least 2 weeks before he works on my stuff.  again, it's all cool, just wanted to give those who are following this an idea of what's going on.
