Hello again. Not much work to report. Wrote around 9k for a Pokémon fanfiction then it got shelved temporarily while I worked on the roleplay itself. After almost three months the roleplay is almost finished, but it still has some work to go. Making notes for two other fanfictions I want to do - both for the cartoon Young Justice. One is (I believe) a partial big bang that rewrites the entire universe post season one. The other is a continuation of the series that is a bit more inclusive of some of the mythology that is in the world.
I also recently revisited a few old series and made them into one big series by rewriting some of the elements. Superhumans, boarding schools, fighting tournaments, and strange thunderstorms abound! I have come up with the basic idea of... nine of the books, but there are several others. Probably about 12-15 in total.
However everything is taking a backseat for a bit, as I am dealing with a financial crisis. Yikes.
Back on the diet today (only gained 1 pound since I stopped actively thinking about it several months ago when started this new job).
Editing a short today.
Sending out quite a few poems this afternoon.
So you saw the finale too? ^^ I totally squeed at the end of it! It was awesome!
My Progress: I drew a character sheet for five of my MCs
And I did something bad >~> I wrote back-stories for next-gen kids that can't exist. Well 2 of them can't exist because one of parents is a story character in the world of the moms and another kid's existance is improbable because the parents don't interact at all.
But I couldn't help myself, lol. I was drawing for a meme and the inspiration grew from there
I don't know how much progress I made since I last posted, but it probably isn't as much as I would have liked. smile I've been busy with the last few weeks of my senior year of high school (down to the final 8 days!), Japanese III homework, my boyfriend, and reading. It's been crazy.
Last Thursday, I went to see The Great Gatsby and it was AWESOME! I loved it! It closely followed the book and almost had me in tears at the end. I highly recommend it. I'm going to see it with my mom soon, hopefully in 3D.
Today, I woke up after having a dream about a boy named Eli telling me I had backstage access to his band's show. His friend Adam walked in and said it was time for them to go. A song started playing on my computer (I listen to the radio on my computer sometimes in RL so that's the only reason I can think of why that happened) and Eli looked ready to cry. Adam whispers to me "he always gets like this when he hears Julia's song."
Then I woke up and cranked out three songs in an hour and a half (I've only written a song once in my entire life)! Now, I'm busy with promoting my FB and Twitter page for my writing while listening to music. It's been an awesome day! heart
Progress: I typed up some stuff I wrote in longhand aaaaaages ago.
See, last time I took a break from writing I planned out Part Three which changed the main point of the novel.
I'm taking a break over my final GCSE exams and now I really want to write a sequel.
But I won't, because I promised myself I wouldn't.
But I very desperately want to.
But I won't.
I spent yesterday solidly researching about studying Law, becoming a barrister (which is now making more sense) and moots. As a result, today I have wrote 1,700 words. It was the hardest thing I've written for this novel, purely because I am clueless about the study of Law. I like to make life hard for myself...
For the rest of the day I plan on reordering the scenes in my novel and find gaps that need filling.
So far I have written 20,000 words, excluding scenes I'm debating about adding to the main manuscript.
Now I need to think of a title....
EDIT: Make that 2,700 words. But then again the additional 1,000 words aren't exactly good quality. At the moment it's about getting the first draft done, but I still expect to come out with some good quality work.
Trying to edit some in wake of that Doctor Who finale. Not making much progress. Too excited about the last minute or so of the episode. Finally series 7.5 excites me, and it comes in the form of a legendary actor.
I haven't wrote as much as I would like to because I have been working, and my week off the week before was dedicated to wedding planning. I am also trying to research about Cambridge University and becoming a Barrister in the UK (for my novel, not me) and I am finding some of the information a little confusing and complicated.
Since I last posted (21st April) I have written an additional 7,000 words (now at 17,000 words). I still have chunks to write up from my notepad but I don't like that fact that my speed of writing has massively declined, by hey, life got in the way.
I have written an article about mental illness and Iron Man 3 which I have sent to mental illness charities and some UK newspapers, so that has taken up some of my time too, but I am looking forward to the possibilities that lay ahead.
Progress: Roughly 1400 words on "Words aren't Enough" (Hetalia fanfic) and roughly 1200 words on "A Common Man's Magic" (FEF fanfic) these past few days. I'm hoping for better numbers next week. With the summer break has come a "slump", a laziness that comes every summer and a horrid procrastination. I'm hoping to beat it tomorrow, in terms of finding a job and keeping myself an active writer.
