9974 / 50000 words. 20% done!

Well, I'm a little closer to finishing. I think I need to really buckle down this weekend and try to catch up. I might actually stay up really late all weekend. It seems like I get a burst of inspiration late at night.

All 3 of my nephews to sign up for the NaNoWriMo Young Writers Program. They're actually pretty excited about it. They've got their titles and their outlines all worked out already. It's pretty awesome.

Now to my dilemma: I know it's only 6 days until NaNo starts, but I've been wanting to participate since I heard about it back in 2006. I don't really have anything to write, though. That's pretty much why I've never participated. But I'd really, REALLY like to participate this year. Which, okay, I just sign up and do it. But my dilemma is that I don't really know what to write. There's one Original Fiction idea I've had in the back of my mind for years. I have the barest of basic idea of the plot, or part of the plot, swimming around in my head. I've never gotten around to writing it because it's pretty heavy, serious material. I don't know if I can handle that with such a strong deadline, but on the other hand, maybe that definite deadline could make me actually write it. The other thing I was thinking of was maybe easing myself into it by writing an epic fanfic for a fandom I've been wanting to write for for a while. I actually kind of have an idea for that one. No matter which way I go, I have about the same amount of an idea for it.

So, what do you guys think? Serious original fiction or epic fanfic?

Note: I'm posting this from a phone, so please excuse any spelling or grammar mistakes. Not that that should be any excuse.

So, I told myself that I was going to do an update at the beginning of the year. And then I realized I was a month or so behind on my F-list. I decided to just go back to the first and catch up from there. It took me a week and a half to catch up. Then I wanted to stay caught up. And so I never got around to updating. So, today I decided to make sure I did it.

Let's see... what's been going on? Not much, really. I've had some ideas for writing, but I haven't really been able to write. I've mostly been... I really don't know. I seem to always be busy, but it doesn't seem like I've really been doing anything.

I did just go to the Dr. The other day. My liver numbers have been a little elevated and bouncing up and down for a couple months. Not really high, only 60-something, but it's been kind of steady, so she wants to check it out. Sometime before my next appointment I have to get a liver ultrasound. She wants to see if it's simply a side effect from the Methotrexate or some fatty deposits or what. She's not too worried about it being something bad because she says I'm not really at risk for anything major, so... I just wish I had had the time to get it done that day, but my youngest brother took me and he had class that day. We tried to hurry, but he ended up missing class anyway. Oh well. I'll just have to make an extra trip. If I have the youngest brother take me between classes (he has 4 hours between) it would be cheaper in gas than if I took Paul's car. Whatever. He didn't seem to mind. Especially since I bought him a big slush from Sonic. And I told him I'd buy him one if he drove me again.

That's really about all that's been going on with me lately.

It's been 2 months since my last real update and a month since the last meme, so I should really get on this. I actually meant to update about a month ago, but I just kept putting it off.

cut for the sake of your f-lists. )

And that's all I can think of for now.
domino43: (George - sit hat)
hehe. I love me some George Harrison lyrical references. XD

Anyway, it does seem like forever since I've updated. When was it? No posts at all since the end of August? Wow, I've really been neglecting this thing. I know I haven't read my Friends page for nearly 2 weeks. That was mainly because dad was here and I had no real time to get on. He left the middle of last week, but I just haven't been able to find the time. I've been in my comp lately writing and such. But you can read about that over here. I really should get a Beta reader. Don't want to give away too much, but two of the major characters, besides the OC, are Viggo and Karl (minor) characters.

The last few days I've been kind of 'blah'. I don't know. I've been having my once a month Dr. visits, nothing new there. I had another PT/OT appointment last time. I didn't see the original PT, I saw the other one. He gave me some more stretching/strengthening exercises. I haven't been doing them like I should. I really need to pick them up properly again before my appointment next week. I should do them all tomorrow. :\

I...don't really have much else to say. I'm so out of the loop that I have no comment to make on anything.

Also, I guess my journal's getting paid when my brother gets his income taxes back, so early to mid February. :\
domino43: (George - sit hat)
Had a Dr. appointment a couple weeks ago and he referred me over to the Arthritis and Osteoporosis center over at the hospital. I had that appointment yesterday. I was referred for OT and PT. Saw the OT first. She checked me out, focusing mostly on my back and lower body. My range of motion is pretty bad. She gave me some simple stretches and core strengthening exercises to do. All but one are done lying down. The stretches are so I can hopefully improve the straightening of my knees. Saw the PT after that. She's focusing on my wrists and hands and helping me find easier ways for me to do things, while helping me make sure I do things correctly, keeping my posture correct. She said my posture is actually pretty good and I already do some things right. We just talked about what we'll be doing this time. next time we'll start doing things.

Also, I'm a nerd and miss writing essays for English class, so I've decided to write some. I'll post them over at my writing journal when they're done. Started the first one today. Gonna work on it more in a little bit. Hopefully I'll be able to finish it tonight or tomorrow.

The night before last, brother's computer got some malware somehow. Took forever to get it off. It wouldn't run right until it was off. In fact, it was running the comp extra hard so it kept overheating and shutting down. He finally got it off last night and it's been fine all day.

Speaking of which, I need to get off here so he can get on when he gets home.

Also, I have no idea when he's paying my journal. He was supposed to do it at the end of last month, but didn't. Whatever. He'll do it when he does it.
domino43: (Default)
As mentioned in my writing journal, I'm rewriting/revising an old Viggo story. I kind of always wished I had written it fully before posting it, of course, as I was posting it, but I figure now is as good a time as any.

[ETA] Just wanted to add a link to the journal post I actually talked about it in. It's over here.

Just added a Johnny Depp fic that I wrote for my cousin to my writing journal.

Title: What's Your Fantasy?
Author: [ profile] domino43
Pairing: Johnny Depp/OFC
Rating: NC-17
Summary: Marina meets Johnny Depp at a premiere and he comes looking for her.
Disclaimer: I don't own Johnny Depp. I wrote this for my cousin because Johnny Depp is her fake husband. :P

I guess it's time. I haven't really felt like updating lately. Or doing anything, really. I just can't get motivated. And I've been getting distracted so easily. I've just been having these crazy mood swings lately. It's from the stupid Prednisone. The Dr. and I were talking about it the other day. He was telling me how he's on 60mg short term and it's giving him crazy mood swings. I realized that why I had a REALLY depressive day like, a week and a half ago. I just wanted to stop taking all my medications and just go to sleep and just sleep for days. And the day I went to the Dr, I was fine in the morning. I was actually in a decent mood. By late afternoon/evening I was just in a terrible mood. And it didn't help that people kept getting on me about all kinds of stuff. Not that they really knew I was in a bad mood, but that's not the point. They shouldn't have been acting the way they did in the first place.
cut for length and depressive crap )
Also, I've actually been reading lately. As far as my challenges go, I've got most of the V.C. Andrews books read. I'm going to slip "The Time Travelers Wife" in there next, though. I want to watch the movie first. The way I see it, if I read the book first, I'll ruin the movie for myself. If I watch the movie, I'll just find there book that much better. I really wish i was feeling more up to doing things and wasn't getting so distracted all the time so I could fly through books like I was at the end of last year. Hopefully that will get better as I wean off the steroids.

I keep trying to work on that Conan smut I started a couple weeks ago, but I keep getting distracted. I'll open it up and then I'll go check my mail and then I'll end up on Facebook, then here, and never get to it before I go to bed. It's starting to annoy me. But watch, tomorrow night I'll open it up and not be able to write anything either.

I also need to write some non-smut. Seriously. I feel bad for anyone on my F-list that doesn't like smut (how many of you are there, anyway?), so can't read any of the stuff I write. Not that I think I'm a great writer or anything. I do have one story I've been wanting to write for years. I have some rough character sketches and a general outline for it in my head, but I've never been able to start it. I may have to just write scenes randomly and fill it in.

Anyway, that's about all I can think of and make myself do. I'm honestly going to try to be a little more present around here. We'll see how it goes.

The first TEN people to comment in this post get to request a drabble of any pairing/character of their choosing from me. In return, they have to post this in their journal, regardless of their ability level.

When requesting a drabble, please list the:
-suggested rating (for all you porn-lovers and pr0n-haters to identify yourselves)
-prompt (word, quote, phrase, couple words, situation, etc)

I haven't really been writing much lately, but I'd really like to give myself a kickstart. Anything from my fandoms or fandoms I know something about, pretty please. I'd like at least a fighting chance.

I haven't updated since the day after Christmas and haven't done a REAL update in about 3 weeks. I guess it's about time. I don't know why, but I haven't been feeling like posting. Like, something will happen, or I'll want to say something and think to myself 'I need to post on LJ...' but then I just don't. I'm trying. I'm going to make more of an effort. I should really make a little more of an effort to comment, too.

LOL. I just did it again. I opened this window and typed that last paragraph about an hour and a half ago. I seem to get distracted easier nowadays.

Anywho, back to what I was saying before...First of all, I TOTALLY missed my deadline for my challenge. :( But I had no way to get my books for a while, so... At the suggestion of [ profile] 100booksayear . I'm actually going to put my mind to it and do this. 100 books a year is only about 2 a week. Before I was doing about 4-5 a week. And I know as soon as I get home and have no TV to watch (we have no cable and no digital converter) I can go back to a few a week. I'm sure I'm going to start out slow, but I think I can do it this time.

Ugh. I keep bruising from shots and getting blood drawn. I have 2 small, dark bruises on the inside of my elbow where they drew blood last week. The girl accidentally poked through my vein. For some reason it's bruised in 2 spots. I still have a bruise from my shot about a month ago, though that one is faded quite a bit. I have a fading bruise on the other arm from 2 weeks ago. AND I have a bruise on the first arm from last week. I look like I got beat in the arms. :(

Got a little more written on my George/Ringo.  I actually had a little burst of creativity last night.  I'm going to work on it again and hope that burst comes back after I make this post.  I'd like to finish it soon.  Heck, I'd just like to finish it.

I...don't think I have anything else right now.  I don't know, I've been a little jumbled lately.
domino43: (ST11: Stop shots)
Seriously, if ever there was a more appropriate icon...

I had an appointment with the podiatrist this morning. My Dr. wanted me to see him again b/c I keep getting infected. Well, when he heard that it had almost been healed but swelled up and was cut open again, and infected yet again, he decided the edges of the nail needed to come out again. Permanently this time. Last time they didn't have the stuff to make the nail stop growing. This time they did. They, as he said, 'worked around the system'. Last time he wanted to use it, but they were told by OSHA that they couldn't have it in the clinic. I have no idea why, but everyone thought that was stupid. Anyway, they had it this time, so he numbed me up. Those shots hurt like a MoFo. Again. I swear, the pain of those shots is worse than the pain before or after the nail is cut out. Anyway, when he went to cut, it was fine until he got to the nail bed. It actually hurt a bit. Don't know if he didn't get it in that area enough, or if it just didn't take as well this time, but it didn't feel too good. Also, the stuff to make it stop growing BURNS. So I was in a bit of pain and discomfort on my drive back. The nurse was shocked and worried that I had to drive myself, but one of my Dr.'s nurses was in there (they are adjoining offices) and told her, "Oh, she's a trooper." So, I'm all bandaged up and it's not hurting too badly right now. More uncomfortable than anything. I fell asleep when I got back, though. Had a nice couple hour nap.

Okay, I'm going to start to actually use my writing journal as a journal and not just a place to post my writing. Sometimes I just need to talk about writing related things. Not that anyone has it friended...

Also. Is Yuku not working for anyone else? I haven't been able to get it to open all evening. :/
domino43: (Maybe Baby - Dear LJ)
Let's do this one a little differently and see how it works out...

Okay, let's see. I've read 50/64 of the V.C. Andrews books. 2-3 weeks of books left to read and about a month and a half left of the year. I think I made pretty good time. And speaking of books, I am dingy. When I went to my appointment, I took the last two books I had just finished so I could take them back and pick up the next 9. I got there and turned off the car and then realized, "It's noon and there are only 2 cars here... *facepalm* It's Veteran's Day! They're closed today." So I had to drive around the block to drop the books in the after-hours drop box.

Like I said before, the Dr. doubled my MTX from 6.25mg to 12.5mg. It was such a small dose before I really didn't feel it, but this time It really stung and actually kind of hurt for a few minutes. It's so thick, too. I am definitely NOT looking forward to getting these shots now every week. *meep* With the increase, he's hoping I see some improvement quicker. Haven't seen any yet. Most people seem to say it takes about 12 weeks to see any real results, so I'm about halfway there.
Also, since I got back on my Prednisone (didn't have the money to get it for a couple weeks), I feel a little better. Pain has already gone down a tiny bit. Hopefully in a few more days it will be even better. I need to get a refill as soon as dad gets paid, though.

Also, as I said before, Corie has Mono. Still can't figure out where she got it, but she does. So, I'll be here a few days to help out until the fatigue starts wearing off a bit and she feels up to it. The kids seem like they should be okay. They haven't been too bad lately. We'll see after a few days.

As I said in my mini!post, I've been around (quite a bit, actually), but I just haven't really felt up to posting. There have been so many things I've wanted to say/rant about, but I just didn't feel it. I've been reading and commenting when I had something to say, so I haven't been ignoring you all. Just been kind of blah lately. I think I've been mostly tired.

I wish I had steady internet access/a reliable computer. I kind of wish I was taking part in NaNo. Can you believe I've never NaNo'd? Oh, well. One of these years, I guess. I just want to work on something. I have a couple things I need to finish (anyone remember me mentioning a certain George/Ringo Slash I wanted to write? Well I started it shortly after that, but then got quite stuck. A few weeks ago, I nearly doubled it in length, but it needs more. I just need to figure out a couple transitions and details and I should be able to finish it. Plus, that Kirill-Hans story I mentioned forever and a half ago over at VFB. I have that thing a little over half done and need to finish it, as well. AND I need to finish that Karl/Anita story. *headdesk* So much to write, but not quite enough muse to go around. And nowhere to keep it all in one place. And, and, and...

Okay. I think I'm done for now. Let's see how this post looks when it's posted. Just wanted to do something a little different.

New Poem!

I've been picking at this one for a couple weeks. Just re-read it and realized it was finished.

Over here @ my writing journal.

Just updated my writing journal [ profile] it_may_show with pretty much all my stuff. Everything from VFB is now there. Except for "More Than Words Can Say". But I've been copy-pasting all day long and my wrist and eyes are starting to hurt. I'll get to it eventually. I think I have everything that's completed on there. And there's a handy Table of Contents so it's easy to search for specific things or to get an idea of what's there.

And now, it's time for bed.

So, Ryan ended up waking up the next day after my last post totally fine. But Robbie was sick, all that day. Unlike Ryan, he actually slept. He was fine yesterday. Corie was sick, today. I'm still a little sick. Still a slight infection, but nothing terrible. Hopefully by the end of the weekend I'll be fine.

Urgh. So, I want to write a Beatle slash with George and Ringo. I'm having a bit of trouble deciding how... sexual to actually make it. Do I want to simply imply (you know, keep my little innocent Georgie innocent), do I want a little kissing/touching (I actually have a little scene worked out for that), or do I want all out sex? Keep in mind, it's to take place in about '61 when the Beatles came back to Hamburg (as did Rory Storm & the Hurricanes) after George being deported the year before for only being 17, so he's only just 18 and Ringo is 21. Thoughts?

Anything else? Hmmmm... Actually, I think, that's it for right now.

*Did I just say "actually" as many times as I think I did?
domino43: (Hansard - listen)
[ profile] it_may_show

Finally came up with a name for my writing journal and set it up. I haven't started posting anything yet, but I'll probably start with the Beatles fic I just posted here and then I'll start with other stuff I have posted here and elsewhere.

Add me if you'd like. ^_^
