Ahhhhh new laptop. Yay! Been wanting one for a while and finally got myself and my money together. In order to get close to the basic specs I wanted, I was made to buy a "gaming" laptop. LOL. I don't think that was a thing the last time I bought one. My old laptop had the equivalent, for the time, of these specs and it didn't need a glowing keyboard. Ha!

So now, maybe I'll be able to vid again. Trying to figure out the versions of Sony Vegas is doing my head in though. The latest Pro version like I used to use is outta my price range. Thinking the other version will easily suit my vidding needs though. Will download the 1 month trial once the muse hits.

Is anyone looking to do Nanowrimo? I'm seriously tempted, especially now that I have a laptop (i.e. means). But most of my novel-shaped ideas are not very well formed. ;)
If anyone is looking for incredibly random writing prompts, This promp generator is giving me a kick at the moment. So much fun. Just refresh the page for new ones. :)

I find it incredibly interesting that Kindle is basically paving the way for completely legal and legitimate fan fiction. I've already downloaded a few of the stories, but not read them as yet. Some of the royalties go to the copyright holder of the original work.

I'm not sure if this link will work, but just google it if it doesn't. --> link.

How do you all feel about this? I quite like the idea and even find it exciting, though a small voice in my mind hopes it doesn't open up possible lawsuits for those of us still writing in the open and free domains of the interwebs.

ALso this is... interesting: Kindle Worlds is a creative community where Worlds grow with each new story. You will own the copyright to the original, copyrightable elements (such as characters, scenes, and events) that you create and include in your work, and the World Licensor will retain the copyright to all the original elements of the World. When you submit your story in a World, you are granting Amazon Publishing an exclusive license to the story and all the original elements you include in that story. This means that your story and all the new elements must stay within the applicable World. We will allow Kindle Worlds authors to build on each other's ideas and elements. We will also give the World Licensor a license to use your new elements and incorporate them into other works without further compensation to you.

These word count trackers are awesome!
There's SPN ones or just fun designs with pirates and stuff. An excel spreadsheet where you can keep track of your word counts. Very handy! :D

A list of SPN episodes and the places the characters visit in each episode (as in where they are in America) for Season 1 though 3.

Does such a thing exist? Supernatural Wiki is a bit of a mystery to me, I'm sure I found something like this on there once, but now... not so much.

How do Americans usually refer to a toasted sandwich? Like something you'd buy at a coffee shop chain with ham/cheese/tomato or something.

Jaffle, toastie, toasted sandwich...?

It's for a fic. Sam and Dean are in Utah, I think. In case that makes a difference. Still working on that, my geography sucks in my own country, let alone a whole other one.

Thanks guys! :)
We so need a WIP Amnesty day! I have all these abandoned work in progress (WIP) documents. I don't even remember starting some of them. I'd love it if someone knew how to finish them. Though I suspect they will mostly just remain WIPS.

There's a crossover with Bobby and The Doctor (SPN/DW)...
Bobby blinked and cocked the shotgun. )


4000 words of Sherlock/Inception fic! 4000 words! I mean I remember writing that one, but still. What?!

A DW musical!!! I kid you not!
"Cardiff is alive with the sound of music!" he stated gleefully. "And it's brilliant!"


And OMG just looked at my google docs folders.
ROUND ROBINS!
Abandoned ROUND ROBINS!

Holy shit these are hilarious! We should so do these again, people!! [livejournal.com profile] rinkle, [livejournal.com profile] sarlania check google docs! Hilarious! Indiana Holmes!! Sam speaking like he's from the outback! An abandoned SGA WIP that reads quite well, though I suspect we had no idea where it was going. Hearts you guys!!! Yeah!

Oh my lord! Digging into the fan fiction wips on my computer hard drive is the funniest thing ever!

*Keeps digging*

Yay! I really enjoyed that.

spoilers )

Thanks show! :D

I still want to write something that has Toby still searching for his family. I had a plot outline, but I need to change it a bit now that they've explained why Thea is different. And I need to actually write. I can't believe how long it is since I've written something. I am finding it hard to know where to start.

Oh and fact check: Sandy still doesn't know about Toby's gift. Right?
This announcement came in a newsletter for writers I got today. Just boosting the signal on this one as I think there are some fabulous erotic writers on my flist who might be interested in some prize money. This is a short story competition, not a fan fiction competition.

Stringybark Erotic Short Fiction Award 2013

Stringybark Stories is delighted to announce our second Erotic Fiction Award. The first competition was such a great success and revealed so much new sexy erotic writing that we decided it is time to do another. The last competition culminated in two paperbacks of award-winning writing and we hope that this competition will do also.

You have 1800 words to produce a short story that will delight the judges. International entries welcome.

There is a total value of over $770 worth of prizes in cash and books available. Stories must be sent via email. Closing date for entries is 31 March 2013. Winners will be notified by 15 June 2013. For more information click here.

Name three fics you think I will never, ever, ever write. In return, I will attempt to write a snippet of one of them.

Try me...


For anyone curious, the results from the last time I tried this (in 2007!) are over Here. Weirdly, they never got beyond the comments of that page. :)

Oh Merlin. How much do I love you, let me count the ways.

Most of my shows are boring me this season. No idea why, but I'm just blah about shows I used to rave about. But Merlin never fails to make me chuckle and squee and want to throw things at the TV. And is Merlin getting more handsome? Has he put on a little weight or something? Just he never did it for me and all of a sudden... yeah anyway.

&hearts &hearts &hearts

And in other random, is anyone at all familiar with BOTH Sherlock and Inception and maybe interested in hashing out a few plot points with me?

I'm a little stuck and Arthur, John, Sherlock and Cobb are staring at me like "well?". At least Eames is sleeping off a bender on the settee, so he's not so mad at me. O_o

Like mad. Seriously. I have this massive *flail-hands* plot that keeps getting more and more intricate (for me) and I just need to somehow get it all on paper.

It'll probably be a while before I can get it all down, but I think this may even turn out well. Sherlock/Inception. Who woulda thunk it?

I think I'll seriously need a Brit-pick though. It's times like these I realise Australians just mix up British and American words as they like. I never know which ones are which. Ha!

I have an Archive of Our Own account. I tested it out and it's easy as pie to just plonk all my ff.net/lj stories right in. But should I? My writing has changed a heck of a lot over time.

Question: Should I archive everything or just the stuff I feel most comfortable with now? How are people going about using the site?

1) I'm participating in [livejournal.com profile] wrisomifu again, so hopefully some fic writing will occur this coming month. lol. I love a community where the goal is to write for ten minutes a day (LJ posts totally count) and whining about your lack of progress or gloating over your awesomeness is totally encouraged. *hugs her favourite November community. :)

2) I have ideas for a Defying Gravity vid. (Do any of you watch the show?) So there may be more vids in the future in fandoms other than SPN. Not that there aren't several partially finished SPN vids on the go too. lol

Oh and a third thing, but it's just me whining.
3) Why has one of my favourite gen verses suddenly turned Sam/Dean? :(
It was a gen-verse goddamnit, GEN! *shakes fist* [/random whining]
