Life Updates

Post  Constance on Thu Oct 13, 2011 1:47 pm

So it's been real quite around here. How's everyone been? How's the writing/editing/revising/anything else going? And who's doing NaNo? I am! Very Happy

I thought at first this was going to be some sort of life update about you. Hehe!

Umm. I'm not writing right now. You prob. know all that. Just chilling out until NaNo! Smile

But the good news is that today was my last chem class for an entire week. Fall break and all. *happy dance*

I am! I am! (NaNo, that is.) Still haven't decided what I'm going to use for NaNo. I'm thinking I'mma use Book 2. But I might use Book 3. Or this other idea. Or that OTHER idea. Oh wait...or idea #3. *like I said...haven't decided* Embarassed

Also, I'm about a fifth through Ch 19 in edits! A chapter & four-fifths to go! So about 9k left. ^_^ I hope to finish by tomorrow. AT THE LATEST. *glares at deadline that keeps drifting farther and farther away...* Rolling Eyes And then I'll do a polish, and then I'll contact my beta readers to see if they're still the special kind of crazy it takes to agree to read my unpublished MS. Razz

And I shall write a query, and...and a synopsis. Not looking forward to the synopsis. At all. They make me want to slit my wrists and give up on life. <--that's way too dramatic, but it's how I feel about them sometimes. I'm sure I'll survive. Barely. Suspect

@Amanda LOL!! You make me laugh.

I think I'm one of those betas, yes?? I need to get myself on a serious reading schedule and catch up with the MSs these wonderful writers are sending me! #badbadbad INCLUDING YOURS! *hasn't read more than the first page*

@Maggie--Yes! But I'd count it a good thing that you haven't read it yet, b/c then you can just delete what I gave you and read my fully polished version, all in one document.Smile

@Twin- I knew this. And no more chem for a bit? Yay!!! Very Happy

@Teo- You should do book 2. You have to write it anyway since people prefer to read books in chronological order. At least, I do. (And as one of your betas, I'd say with much confidence that my opinion actually DOES matter for once Wink )
Hm. I expect to hear "I'm done!" from you next time we speak. Or else! *bright menacing smile* ^^ And yes, I, at least, am still that special kind of crazy. Though it makes no difference what kind of crazy I am until I finish part 1. *frowns at MS* If it wasn't so dang long I'd print it off and read it that way. When it's on Carlton it's so much easier to get distracted. *ponders how I might get it onto my ipod* But I should be done soonish, because I want to finish it before NaNo. (Uh, no promises on the same for part 2. O_o Unless you give me a really REALLY good reason and beg––and I don't mean a "I'll loff ya 4evar" reason, I mean a REAL really good reason.)

@Constance--Weeelll...TECHNICALLY, Book 3 is chronological. Book 2 follows different characters, catching up to the main timeline of Book 1. But I'm currently more excited about Book 2, and Book 3 has many plot thingies that need to be figured out yet. I'll be plotting(maniacally.Twisted Evil) as well as writing for NaNo, probably. Smile And...*retreats from internets until DONE* Embarassed

@Amanda Go with Book 2 then! You have to do what you're excited about, since you're going to be OBSESSING over it during November...

@Teo Still. Book 2 starts before Book 3. It's still logically the right choice. And, like Maggie beat me to saying, write the one you're excited about. Twisted Evil
Good girl. ^_^ *sets aside wicked shiny knife for now*

@Twin You always beat me to my words! Razz

I'm a little late in responding but I'm doing NaNo!! I'm so excited I can barely contain myself. bounce <-- and that smiley is an understatement haha. I've got my plot ready. But for some reason, I still haven't given my characters names. Usually that's the first thing I do. #weird

Anyway, I'm just writing a bunch of poems for my Creative Writing class so noveling has been put to the back burner at the moment. :/ Oh well, only until the 1st of November. Smile

@Shahira YAY! Very Happy
Yeah, names are the first thing my characters get too. Though that wasn't the problem, I DID have issues finding a title, which never happens. I can always come up with titles, even when they're terribly lame ones. But I have one now. ^_^

@Amanda ...Oh yeah. That, uh, title. Er. >.> Ahem. I should tell you, I suppose, that I regretfully have to decline that title.

Neutral I cried the river first. I was going through the stages of grief. Denial, bargaining, anger, depression, acceptance. That was depression, my blog comment was acceptance. I'm all good now. Razz

I'm glad I missed the anger, though the bargaining would've been interesting. Wink

Titles are tough for me too. :/ Usually I name it the first thing that pops in my mind when I tnm of the story then change it to something better later on. It's weird that I haven't given the characters names yet. I feel like I'm neglecting them. Sad

Well, if it makes you feel better, I realized I have no physical descriptions for ANY of my NaNo characters. *should be rectifying that* *is procrastinating instead*

Constance, we're on the same page now. I've named them, but physical descriptions have yet to come. Smile

Do you write the descriptions and stuff in a journal or just kind of stay mindful of what they look like?

The descriptions always get written down, definitely. I can keep in mind personalities, but not physical descriptions, so if I don't write it down, I'll forget. Razz You?
