Me at work: 8 hours till I'm free. Then I'll do housework, dye my hair black and paint my nails black and prep my usual Medieval Goth dress for the BVB concert tomorrow night.

Me at home: It's 6 pm. Gotta do housework and dye my hair and stuff. But first, lemme work on my fanfic a little . . .

3 hours later . . .

Me at my computer: Yeah, the fic is finished! OH NO IT'S 9:30 AND I HAVE TO SCRAMBLE!

2 hours later . . .

Me at my computer again: Hair done, nails in progress. But it's worth it because my fanfic got its first review! <3

you search frantically through four or five half-filled notebooks, to find the one with a specific passage. I'm beginning to think I dreamed about writing this one. Luckily, it's just in the beginning stages, so most of the stuff is still fresh in mind.

You'd think writers would be smart and stick to just one notebook for every idea. But, no, that would be way too sensible and easy. *headdesk*

Here, have some Epica!

I don't know if it's cute or pathetic that buying a new broom made me happy today. Also can't decide if I'm tired or lazy, or both.

But I do know that I can't wait to see Maleficent.

Alright, off I go to coax my writing muse into cooperating. Every time I try to buckle down, my brain decides to freak out like C-3PO.

Don't mind me, I'm just sitting here, impatiently waiting for my Hydra CD to come in the mail. YouTube is not enough right now. I kinda miss the old style Within Temptation. "Truth Beneath the Rose" and "Hand of Sorrow" and "Ice Queen" are the first things that strike me when I think of my favorite band. But at the same time, I love how their current musical style is a strong tribute to the rock style of the 80's. I want to be able to write books in multiple genres, so I guess I can't blame them for experimenting with different styles, too. :)

And don't get me started on G's upcoming single. I'm super excited, but more and more, I'm worried I'll be a little disappointed. For me (and quite a few other fans), his masterpiece will always be Last Song. But since G himself wants this song to carry his memory, to be his defining song, in a way . . . I don't know. I don't know. I think, as we say on Tumblr, I have too many feelz. (Yes, that's feelz with the z. It's more emotive. LOL.)

To bring up the subject of writing again, I'm not happy where I'm at with my main WIP. The story has gotten ridiculously long and complex, and I originally decided to split it into two books. But there's just too much material. I'm afraid I'm looking at a trilogy--a very disjointed trilogy that's taken almost four years of my life, on and off. And I feel like it'll take four more years to get it up to snuff. But I'm determined to try to finish it this year, if only so I can move on to another project. It's just not easy to do so while juggling two jobs.

Interestingly, this recurring customer at work, whom I always forget, always remembers me and asks about my writing. (Actually, there may be more than one. Like I say, I forget them easily.) I don't know whether to call that sweet or scary. I can't quite read her, so I have no idea how to react, and I just smile and say thanks. I don't like feeling completely unable to gauge people, because it makes me feel vulnerable. Ah, well.

My brother and I pooled our money into getting a semi-expensive camera. (Bro describes it as high-end personal, low-end pro.) All of us kids want a nice camera to develop our skills before we go into the really expensive stuff, so we're getting one to share. That way I can take pictures for sketching and for fun; one brother can spam Instagram, or whatever it's called, with pro wannabe photos; and the another brother can create his own HQ textures for his 3D graphics. (I have three brothers. None of them are named Darrell.)

Now we're going crazy waiting for it to ship. We can't wait to start taking pictures of everything we see!

More rambling . . . )

I don't know how they do it, but Stream of Passion seems to have a knack to encapsulate how my imagination perfectly in their songs. Granted, pretty much every band I enjoy listening to can do that, but Stream of Passion seems to do it the most accurately. This song puts me in mind of a story I began mulling over in 2006 (same time I first got into Star Trek TOS), but dropped, because the direction it was going was scaring me.

But then, this song, along with a few from Evanescence, brought everything back in a rush. Now I've promised my muse I'll work on the story eventually. (Emphasis on eventually.) Speaking of writing . . . my notebook's calling me.

But, first, note to self: remember to take off fake engagement ring before church evening service. It serves its purpose warding old men off at work, but it's totally different ballgame in the sanctuary. LOL.
gothrockrulz: (hotch awesome)
Blegh. Where is the year going? I feel as if I haven't gotten anything done yet--especially as I'm watching a ton of people struggling to stay afloat during finals, my BFF and brother included. Kinda makes me feel guilty that I've got it easy by comparison--but, hey, working part-time and writing the rest of the time, instead of going to college, was my choice. I'll keep at it, and see if my hunch that I can pursue a writing career my own way will turn out right. (Of course, keeping that "writing the rest of the time" literal and fresh in my mind would help. I tend to get distracted too easily.)

Speaking of distractions, perhaps I should pretend the internet is down for a while. That might help. I saw an icon somewhere that read something like this: "The key to being a successful writer is keeping off the internet." True, that.

But, before I go, I've got to post this video. It's an ad-lib moment from the filming of season 4 of Supernatural. THIS is the best example of why I'm hopelessly addicted to this show. Jensen Ackles is one of the most awesome dorks on the planet, and I will never be able to hear "Eye of the Tiger" again without giggling.

gothrockrulz: (nuada)
Yes, you read that right. B-O-N-N-E-T.

In this ONTD post about disappointing authors, [ profile] boomstick disses Jane Austen in a way that I really can't wrap my mind around. As a huge Jane Austen fan, I'm seriously displeased. (Virtual cookies for anybody who can tell me which Jane Austen character I just quoted.) I'm not a member of the LJ community, so I can't comment. I'm not too keen on joining, so I'll post my thoughts here instead.

On to the ranting )
