Note: Some of the links for the older stuff go to (and two go to A Teaspoon and an Open Mind), because I don't have everything posted on my journal.

And now for something completely different. How long ago did I promise to write this? I finished the first part so long ago I was sure I'd posted it already but apparently I didn't. Trying not to post things before I finish them but these chapters can sort of stand alone and today I finished off the drafts of parts 2 and 3 so I thought I might as well post part 1

Word Count: 1762 (this chapter)

And done...

Final word count 50,315! NaNoWriMo done! Celebrating with pancakes! I would celebrate with chocolate but I ate it all yesterday thinking correctly that it would help with the writing. I feel brain dead and I didn't even write that much of it today. There are people on my friend's list who are writing over 10K this weekend. They are amazing! Love to all those still writing.

And now a break before I get on with all the stuff I've been avoiding doing for the past month. One thing I love about NaNo: it is a very good distraction from real life.

NaNo should come with warnings.

WARNING: Doing NaNoWriMo may cause sleep deprivation, burning of food, and mild insanity.

I can't believe how long it took of me wondering what that strange smell was before I remembered I'd left a pancake cooking on the stove. Do not start writing when you are in the middle of cooking something! This sort of thing happens every year I do this I swear.

Meanwhile my novel has entered a surreal stage and I'm quite enjoying it. I'm not entirely sure what is going to happen but that doesn't matter because at this point I can write anything because this part of the story isn't actually supposed to make any sense.

Oh, NaNo. My NaNo...

Posted on 2014.11.16 at 21:13
Halfway through and only about a day behind. Not too bad. This is usually the point in the NaNo process where I start to hate my novel and I don't yet, but I am getting a bit tired of it.

Favourite way to add to word count: List random things!

Favourite thing to do when stuck: Go back to the beginning and add a prologue

Weirdest thing about novel so far: It seems to involve a lot of people running about while carrying robot dogs

More NaNoing

Posted on 2014.11.06 at 20:27
I actually managed to hit all the goals for four days and then yesterday I kind of ran out of steam. I was tired and got stuck trying to figure out how to get people from point A to B and once I'd finally managed that realized I still wasn't entirely sure where point B was. Seem to be catching up again but I keep hitting plotholes. I think too much. I keep thinking that makes no sense why would they do that when they could just do that and if he can do that then why didn't he do that earlier and the only reason why is because if he did that it would ruin my entire plot. I need sleep. Really looking forward to the weekend.

Day 3 and somehow I'm actually right on track. Usually I start behind and stay behind. 5000 words exactly. How did this happen? Okay, I may have sort of cheated a bit, just a little bit. I've had this story in my head for quite awhile and I did try writing it before but I thought I'd only done a couple paragraphs, a couple very bad paragraphs, but I found the old file and there was more than that and it wasn't all bad, so I may have borrowed 1000 words from there. I'm cheating and I've only just begun. Oh, well, I don't care as long as I'm writing more which I am.

It's all dark and pouring rain here so in my story London is having an unusually sunny spring.

My last line:
“I'm sure,” Sarah Jane said. “We've been talking too much of dark things. Go find some light.”

NaNoWriMo 2014

Posted on 2014.10.31 at 22:14
I'm attempting NaNo again this year. I don't know why. I must be crazy. Still haven't finished editing NaNo 2012! And next week is going to be really busy at work. But I decided I have to at least try. This year I plan to increase my word count by writing unnecessarily long and detailed descriptions of everything. It's going to be Doctor Who again because I'm in a Doctor Who mood. Or Doctor Who-ish. It's more of a Sarah Jane Adventures/ Gallifrey crossover, but I think the Doctor will have a cameo somewhere in it. I should really do Avengers since I've got some great Avengers ideas that would make a good novel. Well, I reserve the right to change to something completely different if I get stuck on the first day or two. That happened in 2012 and that's the only time I actually managed to finish it.

Anyone remember this one? My 2012 NaNo which I seem to be editing ridiculously slowly. Of course, the first thing I did when I started working on it once more was to edit the first chapter again! The problem isn't starting editing it's stopping. Hopefully, one day I'll actually manage to finish.

Title: What Lies in Wait
Characters: Jack, Ianto, Gwen, Martha, Mickey, 8th Doctor
Rating/Warnings: PG-13 for swearing, violence, and scary stuff. Vague mentions of off screen torture.
Genre: Mystery, Angst
Word Count: This chapter 4,000 (Total 53,000)
Spoilers: Takes place after the Doctor Who episode Journey's End and after the 8th Doctor audio To the Death.
Summary: When Martha agreed to help Jack do a little inventory she wasn't expecting to find a Time Lord frozen in his basement and she certainly wasn't expecting what happened when they woke him up.

[Avengers Fic] Floor Appreciation

Posted on 2014.08.14 at 18:21
I am here! I am alive! I have finished something! I would have posted this yesterday but I had a slight password issue with DW which thankfully is fixed now. I seem to be in an Avengers mood again and I was able to finally polish off this fic which was 99% complete three months ago. Hopefully, I'll be able to finish more of my incomplete Avengers fics before this mood passes.

Title: Floor Appreciation
Characters: Bruce, Tony, Dum-E, U
Rating/Warnings: G
Genre: Friendship, Hurt/Comfort, Humour
Word Count: 2359
Spoilers: None
Summary: Tony tries to appreciate the floor while Bruce tries to deal with the force that is Tony Stark.

Neil Gaiman talking about the author Harlan Ellison

"He said he wanted to demythologize the process of writing. He wanted to show people it was a craft like building a chair and mostly it was done by sitting there and staring at a blank piece of paper and hating everything."

[Avengers Fic] Friendship Magic

Posted on 2014.03.23 at 11:24
I actually finished something! And considering I started two other fics in the past week this is a very good thing.

This fic despite its cracky subject turned out surprisingly serious and fluffy. The whole nightshirt thing came up in my fic In the Company of Friends. It was just a random silly thing my brain came up with. My brain also fortunately provided the story behind it and this is me finally getting that story down.

Title: Friendship Magic
Characters: Clint and Natasha with cameos from various Avengers and Coulson
Rating/Warnings: G
Genre: Friendship, Fluff, Humour
Word Count: 2148
Spoilers: None
Summary: The tale of Clint Barton, Natasha Romanov, and the My Little Pony nightshirt.

[Avengers Fic] Patriotic Paint

Posted on 2013.12.06 at 11:45
Trying to tidy up my incomplete fanfic folder which is a giant mess. Twice as many unfinished fic involving three times as many fandoms as last year. Managed to finish this little thing (in other words added description to the diaolgue) which I initially wrote just to see if I could in fact write Tony Stark. It was supposed to be the start of something longer but I can no longer remember what that actually was.

Title: Patriotic Paint
Characters: Steve Rogers, Tony Stark
Rating/Warnings: G
Genre: Humour
Word Count: 500
Spoilers: None
Summary: There are certain dangers that come from living under the same roof as Tony Stark.

Patriotic PaintCollapse )

Not the Doctor Who fic I'm supposed to be working on but at least I finished something. This fic had one objective: get the Doctor into a bath. It was not as easy as I thought it would be.

Title: Of Frozen Time Lords and Rubber Ducks
Characters: 11th Doctor, Amy, Rory
Rating/Warnings: G
Genre: Hurt/Comfort, Humour
Word Count: 4800
Spoilers: None
Summary: What to do with a delirious hypothermic Time Lord.

So apparently it's still possible for something to completely surprise me and blow my mind.

Spoilers for The Night of the Doctor minisodeCollapse )

Damn my perfectionistic nitpicky attitude to writing. I'm actually doing what I said I'd do and editing last years NaNo which I hadn't looked at in over a year. It's fun in some ways because I can look at my word count and say look I already have over 50,000 words, but my editing seems to involve rewriting things over and over again including trying desperately to add more substance to my bare bones writing and changing lots of small unimportant things. Like I said, I'm nitpicky. So only chapter 1 is done and I managed to add about 800 words to it. I'm only posting it here for now in case I find a major plot hole down the line and have to come back and change something.

This fic is, to be specific, a Torchwood + Martha & Mickey/8th Doctor Audio Adventures crossover, but hopefully someone will enjoy it. Its alternate title is What to do When You Find a Time Lord in Your Deep Freezer.

What Lies in Wait
Characters: Jack, Ianto, Gwen, Martha, Mickey, 8th Doctor
Rating/Warnings: PG-13 for swearing, violence, and scary stuff. Vague mentions of off screen torture.

Spoilers: Takes place after the Doctor Who episode Journey's End and after the 8th Doctor audio To the Death.
Summary: When Martha agreed to help Jack do a little inventory she wasn't expecting to find a Time Lord frozen in his basement and she certainly wasn't expecting what happened when they woke him up.

NaNo or No NaNo?

Posted on 2013.10.31 at 17:09
I keep debating this but I don't think I'm doing NaNo this year. I haven't written anything for months. I just really haven't been up to it. NaNo could be the thing to get me back into writing, but I'm sick of writing things and not finishing them or making them good enough so they can be posted. What I'd really like to do instead of writing 50,000 words is edit 50,000 words. I want to edit last year's NaNo and post it. Considering how fussy I can be when editing this might take me just as long as it took to write it.

The Light at the End!

Posted on 2013.10.24 at 20:15
Have I ever mentioned how much I absolutely love Big Finish and its Doctor Who audios? I listen to their audios at night to help calm down the chaos of my mind so I can sleep and during the day to keep myself from becoming bored to death at work, and now after spending a week suffering from the worst cold I've had in ages, I find out they've gone and released their big 50th anniversary audio a month early!

Warehouse 13

Posted on 2013.07.27 at 21:17
So, I've finally gotten into Warehouse 13. It took me awhile. Actually, it took me three tries over a period of a year, but I'm definitely hooked now. It's a weird show. It's often overly cartoony and cheesy. So much so that it can be hard sometimes to take the serious bits seriously and there's some very serious bits in it. Also, the acting and storytelling quality can be very up and down, and I have to admit that being able to recognize over 90% of the guest stars tends to throw me off a bit. It's not just all the Star Trek and Joss Whedon alums and those who've appeared in other sci-fi/fantasy type shows (Supernatural, Dead Zone, etc) but also local Toronto actors from the Listener and Flashpoint.

But I am a sucker for a team as family shows and I seem to have fallen in love with Steve Jinks so as I said I'm hooked. It also seems to be a very fic-able (not an actual word but it should be) show. I've already got ideas for about ten different fics and I've stared three so far (one which is complete and should be up shortly). It's also very crossover-able (also not a word) so who knows where this will lead.
