I want to try and finish the 4th part of Halcyon Days. Maybe with sex in it? That would be nice. I've been shitty at writing lately but I want to finish it up before NaNo starts. I wasn't going to do it, but then I got it with a plot stick this afternoon and I might actually give it a try? It was really tough last year and I have just as many time commitments this year so I'm not above cheating to get my free book at the end, but I'd like to actually finish for my own price. Might include my Yuletide fic in my word count.
I'm gonna do an AU that'll be the kind of AU that's so far removed from the source material that it really might as well be an original story, kind of like the corporate AU I did over the summer. I just don't like writing original because it feels too much like I'm trying to be a Serious Author. And then there's all these different standards and measures of success that I really don't want to have to deal with because this is just fun for me, really. It's easier to just say Hey, this is just Fanfiction, I don't expect it to ever go anywhere anyway. Then I can fill it with as much unnecessary and gratuitous sex as I want. :D
(I'm still of the opinion that the best way to hit 50k for Nano is to have a plot with multiple couples that all need to have sex. :D)
My other arm got finished today. Sam took pics on her iPhone, which I have to admit, has a far superior camera to almost any other phone.
SO PRETTY. <3 I was kind of sad that it was my last appointment with Sam, though! I luff her.
It's kind of hard to explain this tattoo to people. Essentially she's me, but not like, ACTUALLY me. Just a representation of all of awesome this stuff that I love. I could call her my Muse, but in reality my muse is a gay ginger dude. I guess she's my non-writing muse. My Art muse.
Going for Thanksgiving dinner with family tomorrow. Gonna be the longest commute ever. I might as well be driving to Edmonton. Fuck my life. Maybe I'll charge up the Netbook and try and do some writing on the way?
Thursday the roomie and I had this hipsterriffic Thanksgiving dinner with Paris and his roomie, my roomie's BF. (Ex bf? Technically she dumped him but now he's all romantic and attentive so I think maybe she's taking him back? Eh. I like the guy.) It was delicioussss. We all kind of brought various ingredients and cooked it and drank all the wine and smoked pot and ate way too much. I broke out the bottle of Shiraz ice wine I picked up in Niagra, and we had it with pie and whipped cream. AMAZING. They really feel more like family to me than my actual family (not that they'd touch ice wine) so it felt appropriate. :)
Then on Monday I'm going to spend the day making my living room sparkle. I want to finish as much of my Jessica Rabbit dress as possible on Monday so I'm not rushing to sew when I get back from San Fran. Gonna be hot. I hope. I feel a little self conscious because she's such a sex bomb and I'm still not quite where I want to be. But this is about what I weight when I started dating Ronnie, and I was really confident about myself at the time, so it seems like a good celebration of getting back to that. ^___^
