I was pretty sure this day was gonna be a fail. But interestingly enough, once I was tired enough I could look at a screen without twitching, I got some words done! Who would have guessed! But now my eyes hurt from being open, and I realized another scene I might have to write before I’m done. Or maybe I’ll just allude to it…
I am so excited to be done. You have no idea.
Also, Jennet went out to look for children and came back with a gun. Sometimes that girl scares me. And Petria is GOOD at making people jealous, I can tell you that right now. Too bad Appel’s good too, and he uses different methods. I heart those two. I need to shut up and sleep. Only now I’m scared of my dreams, due to certain bizzaro fiction I read today. *sigh* Think happy thoughts about happy things! Like the fights I get to write next! Yes, happy… ^_^
I thought, since there’s, like, three whole* new people who are reading this blog, and they haven’t read any of my so-called writing, that I’d jump on the excerpt bandwagon. Also, formatting this post buys me almost five whole minutes of procrastination time, and I’m out of tea to procrastinate by making. My logic is without peer.
*Perhaps not “whole” people, because they seem to be pretty much insane in the best of ways, which lends its self to being mildly shattered.
Appel and Petria decided to fight with each other today, just in case Danen and Haggerty weren’t QUITE uncomfortable enough. Appel goes really expressionless when he’s mad, and boy oh boy, was he mad. I was twitching just writing him. I only managed two pages, but I think they might be good pages?
Oh, who am I kidding, I have edits for years to do. But at least I got people moving. 😀 Yay for movement! Tomorrow I think Sarti and Etna get their place in the spotlight. Maybe.
I do not know what muse I was channeling for this morning’s scenes, but it makes my skin crawl. I am now at the fun place where I have taken my appetite away due to having taken an little side foray into the mind of my psychotic villain.
Yay for Plucky-Heros-Are-Defiant scene. *flatly* Only it doesn’t make any difference, you’re all going to die anyhow. Painfully. Yeah, sometimes I really don’t like the way my mind works. *is ill*
On the other hand, I think I established my despicable villain as fully despicable. Oh, and Petria, Appel and Jennet endeared themselves to me even more than usual. I knew you were all awesome, you just needed a chance to show it.
I’m sorry, guies!
EDIT: And Jennet just gave a “buck up” speech, despite the fact that I just knocked out her teeth. That girl is QUALITY.
EDIT2: New crack-ship! Jole/Kael. You know they would be CUTE together. *falls into hysterical laughter* Yeah, the fact that this amuses me this much is one of those signs that maybe I should stop. Now. Just stop.
I bought the new Gordie Sampson album yesterday afternoon, and since then I’ve written something like five thousand words and listened to the entire thing 8 times. And there’s these two songs I’ve repeated 35, (thirty five) times. I know, I am In-Sane.
Anyhow, there’s that craziness, and then there is also the fact that I realized I have never written a torture scene. What brings this to mind, you ask? The fact that the next scene I have to write consists of Appel talking to people being asked questions he’d rather not answer. I am rather certain that it’s going to be lame totally awesome. Wish that I survive me luck!
Yes, I watched Juno, as might be evident from my title. I’ve also been writing.
It is curiously liberating to just throw quality out the window, shred it into tiny pieces, jump up and down on it, douse it in gasoline, and shower it with lighted matches. It’s the Nano state of mind, only more so.
So, current state of affairs: Kael and all the Military are hungover, Bleach and Cole are sightseeing, the rest of the techs are cracking the world network, (assisted by the Military,) the Drudges are shopping, Appel is being interrogated, Jennet discovered an empty closet, and Dane and Very are being nauseating. I think Petria locked herself in the shower again too, which is related to Dane and Very being nauseating. That about covers it!
EDIT: Objective of the weekend- write 6k. Everyone else I know is juggling some combination of school, work, reading, and writing, so I can manage this, right? *crosses fingers*
