Hey, I was just wondering if anyone knew some good communities to post in if you need to find some shit out. I have a few questions about certain legalities that are going to pop up in some fiction. Specifically the nuts and bolts of restraining orders, as well a few other things. I looked on Wiki but it didn't say what I wanted to know.

I'm an atheist who wants to believe in God
I'm a cynic who wants to fall in love
I'm a humanist who thinks people suck
I'm a naive boy who opened his heart too much

I love badly
There's nothing for it, I just love badly

I'm the smart one that hated school
I'm the nice one that followed all the rules
I'm the one with vague goals I never set
I'm the one missing a man I haven't even met

I love badly
There's nothing for it, I just love badly

I want to believe in love so badly it hurts
But I'm a fury I can't put it into words

I love badly
There's nothing for it, I just love badly

So this insanely talented fanfic writer [livejournal.com profile] leonidaslion has been doing this cool thing with a prompt table where she only writes a short little bit for each prompt, but they are all connected. Somehow she has managed to tell a complete story by the end, just by a short little update each time. I am ichingly (shuddup, it's a word) curious to try it, but it's like--I have enough damn stories I'm not updating. Still, the format appeals to me greatly, and I would really love to give it a whirl some day.

Maybe I could use it as a warm-up, and just write a short one each day. I mean they would have to be short because if I wrote a full-chapter sized update I wouldn't write anymore that day, probably. I dunno. We'll see what happens, I just really like the idea. *shrugs*

I don't know what good this will do because I didn't follow the last one, but let's give it a whirl.

To do:

  • HOWL 2.2 (really need to finish this motherfucker)
  • Voting Incentives
  • Audio chaps for youtube

Since I haven't even worked on this damn thing since I put it up, I might as well repost it so I keep thinking about it. I actually manged to get a little done today.

  • HOWL 2.2
  • Subfic (subscriber fiction)
  • Voting Incentives
  • Some traditional ms work


I'm also thinking about updating my layout, maybe something in a queen of hearts theme...we'll see.

So I'm wondering if I should just remove the most recent writing section from my sidebar. I haven't updated it in forever. Hell, chapter 28 was literally months ago, and I have written much more recently than that. Not as recently as I'd like, I wanted to get some more original stuff up on my website but then my girls came to see me and I get sick.

On another layout note, I'm surprised the colors have lasted this long. Usually I get bored much more quickly than this.

So, as I mentioned, I finished my first book yesterday. Unfortunately I cannot tell anyone in my family about it. Why's that do you ask? Simply because it has gay content in it and I'm not out to most of them. Ah, I can hear you say, but isn't the solution to that problem easy?

No. No it is not. I know the closet is self-defeating, I know that it's hurting more than just me, that there's this huge chunk of my life that I can't ever share with them. I know that, really. But the thing is? I'm not all that upset about it. Oh sure, I'm frustrated and mad at myself, but not enough to rock the boat. The status quo may be flawed, but it's working for me right now.

But of my problem is, I'm not a big risk taker. I'm not coming out to my parents until I'm absolutely sure I have a place to say if things go south, just in case. Not that I expect them to take it badly, but it's just too much of a biggie to worry about. Can't be homeless, after all. The closet is a lot more complicated than the gay party line says it is. It's not about shame, it's not about self-flagellation, and while there is some fear involved, it's not really about that, either. For me, it's about caution, and having all my ducks in a row.

Maybe they'd be cool with it, maybe they wouldn't care...but what if they did care? It's just too much to think about, to process. My fragile human mind can only handle so many what-ifs at a time. Better to let this one happen as it happens, I think. At least for now.

So I finished my first book today. Cat Valente said something like whenever she finishes a book she expects confetti to rain from the ceiling and is always disappointed when it doesn't happen.

Anyone who has ever read anything of mine, now you can vote for me on TepWebFiction.com. Sure, it's for my original fic and not for fanfic, but that's okay. Send a little goodwill my way, anyways, please.

Gail Simone, current writer of the Wonder Woman comic book, just posted a haiku contest on the CBR forums. Whoever wins gets a signed TPB among various other "small goodies." I doubt I'll win, but here was my attempt:

Diana of Days
O Icon of Love and Peace
Lead us, Princess, Lead

I tried to follow as many traditional haiku rules as possible, though I'm not sure 'days' strictly counts as a seasonal marker. I wanted to say "Diana of Ages" but that, of course, doesn't fit the structure. And I didn't quite manage a question either, but I like it anyway.

Yeah, I'll be lucky to break 10,000 at this rate, forget about 50k.



8865 / 50000 words. 18% done!

Oh, well. I'll just keep on keeping on.
sethgray: (Default)
Well, I'm not sure what day it should be, since I didn't even write on Tuesday. But eh, here's yesterday's and today's word count combined, since it was a piddling anyway.



7304 / 50000 words. 15% done!

15 percent. Sigh.

Oh, well, think positive. I've still written over seven thousand words since the start of the month, which is better than what I do usually. Think positive, self, think positive.
sethgray: (Default)
Made up a little progress today. And two percentage points!



6148 / 50000 words. 12% done!

Go me, I'm awesome.
sethgray: (Default)
Well, I did write a few more words, but it wasn't even enough to raise me a percentage. >_<



4994 / 50000 words. 10% done!

However, 4994 is a cool number, so I'm putting up regardless.
sethgray: (Default)
Okay, dropped the ball the last few days, but wrote two side stories today so made up some progress.



4821 / 50000 words. 10% done!

Still have some tinkering to do on the second one, so the word count may change slightly before the day is out.
sethgray: (Default)
Wow, so I made even less progress today than I did yesterday. Oh, well. Still wrote today. Here's the numbers so far.



3066 / 50000 words. 6% done!

Someday this month I will do an independent project that I can give a sample of here.
sethgray: (Default)
Only made 900 some words today. Only, I say, but actually made a lot of progress.



2214 / 50000 words. 4% done!

There are some people that are already breaking five digits, and I've yet to break five thousand. It cracks me up.
