Woo! Summer…Update inc

This is gonna be quick and dirty, just how I you like it.

  1. I’m not much further along than I was in the last update, except that I threw out a scene and may or may not get it out of the trash, depending on how obsessed  annoyed I get with thinking about it.
  2. It’s summer and the only time, where I live, that the temperature gets above FuckingCold° (that’s 15 for you celsiusers and 60 for you farenheiters). In the summer, I’m even more active than I am in the winter because SUN and BIKE WOOOOOOO. (IE this means several things which are more explained down below in the “Maybe You’ll Like This But Maybe I’m Delusional” section of this post but in this section it just means that it’s tougher to write because, again, SUNWOOOOOBIKEOMG)
  3. WHY DOES WRITE SO HARD? WHY?
  4. I made jam for the first time today from the rhubarb plant in our backyard. Why is this relevant? Because sugarhigh and I felt like sharing that I made some progress with SOMETHING IN MY LIFE.

Okay so that’s where I am.

Here’s where I’m going:(We’ll call this section…

Maybe You’ll Like This or Maybe I’m Delusional in Thinking You’ll Like This but I Don’t Care Because Something is Better Than Nothing.

Or, MYLTMIDTYLTIDCBSBTN™, for short.

Also, I’m dedicating this section to Marleen & Kate cuz they kick my ass and I really need that right now.

 

katemarleenbait

oh yeah baby

Okay so the dedication is mainly an excuse for an excessive number of Hiddleston gifs.

reasons

 

Right! On with MYLTMIDTYLTIDCBSBTN™

I’m live writing vignettes. You can join me  for chat or editing or just general commentary. (links incoming after disclaimer)

Disclaimer:

  • These will be spoilers for Shattered Glass.
  • The vignettes are free/unedited/in the process of editing/may never be finished/are exercises to clear the way for NSI and it takes priority
  • I’m extremely active irl. This means my lack of response is because I’m:

a) at the gym venting my frustration by falling under throwing barbells around

b) I’m eating

c) On a bike ride

d) Food. It’s always probably food.

e) Taking the dog for a walk

d) Playing with the cats (but really, opening peanut butter jar)

e) Cleaning house (Also code for peanut butter)

f) Peeing (most likely reason for being afk other than eating)

g) Out with the hubs doing b, c, but not f because no

h) Eating.

i) you know who needs a disclaimer? Skippy. And Nature Valley.

 ** What my absence/lack of response does not mean:

a) I’m not thinking about writing

b) I’m ignoring you.

c) I”m not eating. I’m probably eating. All the things, but mostly peanut butter.

  • Sometimes writing will take precedence and I may not answer your chat for awhile even though you know I’m right there cuz you see me typing. This is good. You should encourage this, not be upset that you see me typing and it’s not to you =P
  • Most of the stuff I’m writing will either be non-spoilery for NSI or there will be a warning for spoilers for NSI
  • I’m not sure what this bullet point is for, is but I’m reserving the right to add to the disclaimer for…reasons that might apply.

 

FAQ

Why are you doing this?

  • I’m frustrated with certain aspects of NSI and I want to get the characters more in my head
  • One of the characters needs more fleshing out. I know his story, but it’s not playing in my mind like the rest of the characters
  • It’s fun
  • I want to get in the practice of writing every day
  • I miss interacting with y’all
  • Hoping this will kick my ass

Why aren’t you writing NSI?

  • I am, this is literally helping me write NSI (get it? Lit(heh)eral–..I’ll show myself out)
