I am in a dilemma regarding what to work on next. I like getting input from other people, so if you have any suggestions I would love you for it.

Ah, so the last week has been fairly awful. I'm not really sick anymore, but I've been coughing so hard that people on the street asked if I was choking. I had a midterm and there was SO MUCH WRITING and I'm a super-slow writer on tests and didn't finish the essay. I'm desperately hoping for a C. ;_;

Then my grandfather had a fall on Thursday. It happened before in April, when he stood up too fast and got dizzy. He's fine now, but this family has been spending way too much time in the emergency room lately.

But then the weekend was awesome! I didn't do too much, but I got to hang out with Dani and have mini-adventures and cupcakes.
And I got my first fanart!!!! Well, not so much 'got' as 'stumbled upon a sketch while browsing tumblr and subsequently confirmed that yes, it was from a story I wrote'. But holy fuck, I never thought that would happen.

I'm also having a hell of a time deciding what to work on next. Lots of drawing to do tonight. So much to do aaaaahh.

So I was going to post the last chapter of my story today, but then my friends weren't able to beta, my computer got a virus and now I can't access LJ on my home IP.

metatronis: (Smile)
Finally finished the chapter! It's like, twice as long as the first one howdidthathappen. I'm gonna try to get it ready to post by tomorrow, but there's a Community marathon tonight so I don't know how I'm going to handle this, but it'll happen. Yes, I can have it all.

I'm getting super excited for Comic-con this year. It might be my last time going for a little while, so I've got to make the best of it. I might even cosplay at some point aaaahhh.

Aw poop

Oh jeez. They just posted the new NaNoWriMo shirts.
I think I have to decide whether I'm going to participate this year.
So far I haven't gotten any big ideas, and I'm not sure if I want to continue in the same vein as the past stories.
I still love my Jerbear and all of those guys, and I don't think I'm done with that universe at all. Maybe I need a break from them? Or maybe I need a break from Nano. That's what I keep thinking, but on the other hand, I keep getting that urge, and in my stony heart of hearts I want to do something.
It's my 4th year! I've gotta try, right? I mean, this November will be busy, but it's been busier.
Aaaaaaahhhh, I think I'll get the shirt now, but I'd better start brainstorming soon.

OH MAN, I'm done.
Almost done. Two more weeks of actual school, then it's over forever until fall.

I was up until Real Lateā„¢ last night finishing a term paper, and by the time I was done, I had no idea what I'd written about. Like, seriously. Ten pages of complete crap. I think?
That's not a good feeling, but at least it's nearly over. The worst parts of the semester are behind, and the Bath stuff (interviews, acceptance) is going to start soon, so I'll know in a few weeks whether I should start planning. Holding my breath.

One month until my 21st birthday! I want a car made of ice cream! And no, those two things aren't related.
My eyes want to sleep but my body does not.

My brain is everywhere these days.
And not just with summer wrapping up and everything, but the steady approach of Nano as well.

For the past week or so I've been coming up with ideas for the next [continuing] story, and it's going well but is also very, very frustrating. I can't talk to anyone about my ideas because a) no one irl is gonna listen and b) more importantly, if I talk about it, I won't be as motivated to write two months from now. The person I normally have these lengthy discussions with is fffffaaaaaaaar awwaaaayyy, and the only other person I have [4 seriouz] discussions with has just started reading my stories. OOPS.
So basically I really don't want to talk about it because it's better for my brain in the long run, but it's hard not to because this point in the process is exciting and I'm a hopeless attention whore. It's like this every year, though. If I can't cope by now, I should probably just move to Hhhhacksville.

The ideas that I've been expanding on are also kinda depressing, which is...making me depressed. I've gotta start thinking up some happiness, and fast.
Oh well. School starts tomorrow, so hopefully that'll distract me enough that I can pocket my fictional universe for a while.

Yes, our semester is starting on a Thursday.
No, I don't understand it either.
metatronis: (Story of MY LIFE)
Here is something completely ridiculous for all y'all.
I'm sure most of you know about my expansive, tender flesh by now. Well, my friend pineapplegrl186Erin went to my Asian Art History class with me last week, and something occurred in our boredom. I stole her camera afterward and took pictures of it.

The next step after note passing )

Ever since I got an actual copy of my book, I've been editing whenever I have the time (and remember to).
I realize that one of the reasons I'm so ashamed of my writing is because it's very plain. It doesn't really have much flair...and I'm not sure if that's a major flaw, or if it's just my style of writing. If I tried to make a conscious effort to add more sweeping flourishes while writing, I'd never get done with anything. For me, it really feels like the driving force in my writing is concept. Not necessarily the overall concept, but more so the smaller ones that add up to create the larger ones.
Sometimes when I'm editing, I'll come across a sentence or paragraph that makes me cringe and think, "how the hell did I ever think that was coherent?"
But then sometimes I'll find an idea in there that makes me say, "how the hell did I come up with that?? It's actually kinda...good."
It's interesting how things fall into place. Like, how easy it is to put something really random and seemingly inconsequential in a scene and then you realize that it could be part of a major plot point and it scares you that your subconscious can put things together in such an odd way. R-right?

Also, I changed my hair again. I don't mind saying that my new hue(s) is pretty darn cool. I think I would like to share a picture or two tomorrow when I can photograph in the daylight.

Also, while doing research for a speech, I discovered that I still have a form of OCD. I'd always thought that the symptoms I have were just left over from the full-blown OCD (like, residual or something), but it turns out they consider it to be a whole different form of OCD. Huh...interesting. My case seems to be extremely mild and infrequent, so it's not like I'm going to rush myself back to my psychiatrist's office. It's just good for me to know that I still do have a mental disorder. Oh lawd, my family is so mentally fuckededed up it's not even funny. Well, okay, it kinda is.
