Wow... I'm posting two entries in one week.  Crazy!

So, I wrote a new one shot last week, along with starting to type up my crazy arse long story that I've been working on since November 2007.  I started writing it by hand, but it's just under 100 pages (in my journal) and honestly... it is too damn hard to find anything in it when I need it because I've written so much.  It's nowhere near finished either!  I'm hoping once I get it all typed, I will have more energy to work on it because it won't be so hard to do, along with having more time this summer because I won't constantly be writing for school (though I DO need to keep working on my book!).

Other fun news... I might be going to China in the fall of 2010 to help teach English.  I actually REALLY want to go, but I am also undecided because Josh and I are going to start planning the wedding this coming fall  (and hope to be married by summer of 2010), and I am honestly not sure if I can leave him and the animals for 6 months.  It will be very hard, especially since we have lived together for almost 5 years now.  So I will just have to see, and I have a year before I have to make a final decision.

AND... today I made sheperd's pie!  It's in the oven right now, and I'm super excited to see how it will turn out!  It is the first time I've ever made it and it smells great because I'm starving.

That's all for now....

so... for some reason today (maybe the fact that i'm seeing the 5th movie in a few hours, and the next book is coming out in a week and a half), i felt like working on my novel length story, Outside Our World.  i've actually had the next chapter finished for.... over a year... but i wasn't happy with it, so i never posted it.  there were quite a few things i wanted to change in the previous chapters, from how the boys reacted to certain things, and to make details a bit clearer.  so i just spent most of the afternoon going back through the first 6 (posted) chapters and revamping them, though a couple of them i only changed little things.  i don't have time tonight to do chapter 7 (the unposted one), cause i gotta go take a nap so i'm rested for the movie, plus i have a REALLY long day of work tomorrow.  i'm thinking that this will help me get back into the groove of writing a bit though, which would be nice.  now that i've changed some of the things from my other chapters, i think it will be easier to make the chapter 7 changes and then go from there.  hopefully this week i will be sending this stuff off to my betas for them to redo, and make sure i didn't screw anything up too badly. 

so yeah... that's what i did today. i'm surprised i could concentrate, because i'm sooo friggen excited to see the movie!  it's pouring down rain here right now, lightning, thunder, and all, so i'm hoping that the line isn't soo incredibly long tonight when i get there that i have to wait outside.  that would blow.  we had to do that for PoTC3 and it wasn't fun. 

okay... time for a nap.

Okay... I know I don't post a ton of stuff on here all the time, but today, I am bored.  Like really, really, REALLY bored.  So... I am asking people to comment to me.  I don't really care what about either.  I just want you guys to ask me stuff... about anything you would like.  I feel that since I don't write very much, unless I comment on your journals occasionally, you really don't know a ton about me.  Nothing is out of bounds for what you would like to ask. 

I should prolly be working on writing the last few paragraphs of my most recent piece of work that I've finished, but I'm kinda undecided about how I want to write them (even though I know what I need to add).  So yeah... the keyword of that is 'should' but eh.  I might actually be submitting it to the threesome challenge that is just starting, depending on if it qualifies (I'm waiting for a response on that still). 

So... ask me anything.  I know some of my flist decently well, but others I don't know hardly at all.  And even if we talk occasionally, still ask me something if you have the time.  I feel that I should talk on my journal here more than I do (and other than commenting on other people's posts). 

On another note... if you've never played Guitar Hero 1 or 2, you should.  My sister has it, and granted, I don't get to play it very often, but it's soooo addicting and fun.  I played it for quite a few hours today... I LOVE IT.  If she wasn't borrowing our Playstation 2 right now, I would go out and buy it for myself, cause it's awesome.  It's kinda hard sometimes, and can be frustrating, but it's kinda like DDR... you just HAVE to keep playing until you can do it well.  LOL.  Hence... why I'm listening to John the Fisherman (by Primus) over and over right now.  It's one of my favorite songs to play on it. 
So... I had a rabid plot bunny attack me late last week, after a wonderful chat with a friend.  I just couldn't seem to get the idea out of my head, and at work on Saturday, I started writing.  Granted... I only got about 200 words down on paper cause it ended up being a busy day, but it was a start.  Then, on Monday, I decided I would start typing it up, just to see if I could write any more.  At some point around 3 in the morning (Tuesday morning that is), I had finally managed to type about 10,000 words. 

So... now I'm just waiting for it to be sent back from my betas, and with a bit more tweaking, hopefully I shall have a story to post in a few days!  It's been FOREVER (no kidding) since I've posted anything I've written, and I'm rather happy with this one. 

Yay!  I'm very excited.

I would just like to thank everyone that has reviewed my WIP so far, and my recently posted one-shot. I would love to get back and respond personally to each and every review, on here and on ff.net, but I don't seem to have enough time in the day. So, until I do, thankyou to everyone. :-)

We are currently working on the new site, it should be done by Halloween (at least we are shooting for that). Let's hope! *crosses fingers!* I am sooo glad that Raven isn't a schmuck like me and actually knows what she is doing for it... I'm still trying to figure out DreamWeaver! :-)
So... I stayed up quite late the other day writing because this awesome idea just hit me and I couldn't let it go. It's just a one shot, but I still like it. I am in the process of waiting for my betas to get it back to me, and I have just a few changes to make, but it should be up before the end of the week. YAY!

Of course... it's like 5 months late for the Fic Challenge where I got the idea... but fuck it. I couldn't think of anything for it before... but I've got something now!!!
Soon, I shall be posting the first few chapters of a lovely new story I am working on. Hopefully this lj will someday be home to more than just this story. Eventually (sometime in the future) I am going to post a list of some of my favorite stories (if I can find them again) because I always love a good rec list!


Oh yes... you should go here for cute little icons/banners.

How cute!
