No Quite NaNo becomes just plain not

I found myself becoming a little too obsessed with the word count to the point where it was actually getting in the way of my writing. I really need to accept that NaNo is just not a model that works for me.

In the end all that matters is that I'm working on telling the story.

Not Quite NaNo and fic

So I had a brutal headache this afternoon. It's died down some, but I've gotten no writing done. On the other hand, I tidied up Chapter 8 of "I've Traveled all this Way for Something" and posted it, so that's something.

I might do a little writing tonight, but my totals will be combined with tomorrow's numbers.

So there was this meme on tumblr and usually I don't cross post but this is a fic meme, so i figured why not?

post a single sentence from each WIP you have (or as many as you want to pick). no context, no explanations. no more than one sentence!

many sentences!Collapse )

Not Quite NaNo

I didn't get much done on the 6th, but today was good. So my count for the 6 & 7th is 2747. That puts my month's total so far at 10,008. I'm still behind but more importantly, I wrote a ton tonight and I finished Chapter 8 of the Est fic. This will actually slow me down, because since I'm still planning on posting chapters as they're written, I'll need to spend some time editing. But Nancy and I are going to do the "go to the cafe and write" thing on Sunday which should help.

gah

Completely fucking awful night last night--I wasn't as careful as I should be about late night food and my acid reflux acted up like crazy. It's been a problem since I had my gallbladder out--holy fuck 12 years ago--but it's been getting worse. Yay getting older.

I hardly wrote yesterday either, which I kind of blame on the deadline thing. I can work to a deadline, but not like this. :( Also, I fucking got stalled on the fic. Obviously for the best of reasons--playoff baseball--but I need to get that hectic drive back. Without, you know, triggering a manic episode.

I just heard an empty water bottle hit the floor downstairs and yelled, "get off the counter" like Og was actually going to a) understand what I said, and b) actually get off the counter. Cats, man.

Not Quite NaNo

Word count for November 5 -- 1309.

I'm getting further behind, which is vexing. I have got to start writing earlier in the day because I want to write more at this very moment, but my night time meds are kicking in and it's hard to keep my eyes open.

Not Quite NaNo and time passing and things

Last night Nancy mentioned that she's been here in California with me for ten years now. Actually, we moved her here in early September, but still.... Ten years. That's the longest I've lasted with anyone and it's been fairly smooth sailing. It's kind of funny because we were both "thank you for putting up with me" even though we do really well well when you consider the baggage and health issues.

Ten years. That's pretty awesome.

* * *

This year I decided to try reaching the NaNo word count goal, but not work on a specific, new, story. Mostly I've been working on the Est fic, but I wrote a quick thing set in the Blood Histories series and I'm also working on a fic with Nancy.

As of yesterday (last night/early this morning) I'm at 6024 words, which is about 800 less than I should be at. Overall, though, I'm pretty pleased with my progress.

* * *

Because I'm writing, I'm not reading as much, so doing a regular Wednesday reading thing is probably out for a while. I kind of got hung up on the English Civil War for a little while, so I just finished "Cromwell to Cromwell: Reformation to Civil War" by John Schofield. It was pretty interesting; he looked at how history went from Thomas Cromwell who would probably never had dreamed of rising against Henry VIII to Oliver, who helped depose and execute his king. It was kinda dry but also interesting.

I don't have anything queued up to read right now.

* * *

I haven't done much cooking lately either; my anxiety keeps telling me I'll ruin dinner, which...so what? I mean I probably won't and if I do, it's not the fucking end of the world. But...try arguing with anxiety.


So that's me.

I only wish....

I really wish the Orioles had won the ALCS because a orange and black World Series would have been awesome.

But...we had a game straight from the movies. Ups and downs and unlikely heroes. A walk off home run from a guy who honestly thought about quitting earlier this year because he thought he'd never make the big leagues again and....

THE GIANTS WIN THE PENNANT!!!

For the third time in five years, the Giants are going to the World Series!!!!

still incoherent here

Moving On!!

The Giants won the NLDS tonight! We're on to St. Louis for the NLCS!!!

You don't have to be a Giants fan or even a baseball fan to understand how great this is.

If you're a Giants fan, you understand why it's awesome that they did it the same night the Dodgers lost their elimination game.

OMG!

The Giants won! 8-0

And now, on to DC!

Well this is a fine how do you do

My head hurts so much I can't watch the game. I'm listening, but still, fuck you hormones.

Please think good thoughts for my boys because this is win or go home!

More Fic

[[Over 40,000 words in a little under a month. The hell?]]

Chapter Six of “I’ve Traveled All this Way for Something” is up at AO3.

Chapter Six: Learning As You Go

"You wanna try this?"

Buster's been watching them play for about an hour and while he thinks he's got the general idea, he knows he's nowhere near as good as they are. "I'd just slow you down, Sir."

"I give it another week or so of him watching us play," Lincecum says. "Then he'll be kicking our asses."

"Politely," Hunter says.

"And very respectfully, Sir."

He's not here to be funny but it's still nice to be able to joke and have them laugh. "Why don't you get your respectful ass over here," Lincecum says.

"What the fuck? You asshole, I'm ahead by four runs, so, what, all of a sudden you've got the urge to play with him?"

"Dude," Lincecum says as Buster kneels in front of him. "It's not fucking real time. The game's not going anywhere."

"Yeah, well, neither is Buster."

"Oh he's going somewhere all right," Lincecum says. "Over my lap."

Oh kittehs....

So I was doing a picture of today's Sephora haul and, well, this happened.




If anyone's curious that's: 7 mini Fresh Sugar Tints, Naked Basics 2, Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Blissful, a Sephora brand concealer, a UD lipstick and lip pencil in Native, Origins micro dermabrasion, and a Sephora brand sheet mask—pomegranate anti-fatigue & energizing.

Back to the Post-Season

The SF Giants clinched one of the Wild Card spots today. They will play a one game play off on Wednesday. While the cameras were live Hunter Pence gave a speech.

More Fic

This fucker is eating my life; I'm writing even while I'm playing the Sims and watching TV.


Chapter Five of “I’ve Traveled All this Way for Something” is up at AO3.

Chapter Five: Day Two

"Kneel up over there," Hunter says, pointing to a spot in front of the big sofa. "Don’t bother getting to your feet."

Buster’s face feels like it’s on fire; crawling always makes him feel huge and clumsy. Neither of them laugh at him though. In fact, they’re not really paying any attention; Hunter’s undressing and Lincecum is...digging around in the couch?

"There it is," Lincecum says, holding up the bottle of lube from yesterday. "Fucking couch eats everything." He tosses it to Hunter.

This has got to be the weirdest household any slave’s ever been a part of.

Fic!

Chapter Four of “I’ve Traveled All this Way for Something” is up at AO3.

Chapter Four: Mistake

Lincecum crooks his finger. "Now, over my lap...no, straddle me."

"Yes, Master."

Buster feels huge as he settles on the sofa with his knees on either side of Lincecum's hips. He's got at least forty pounds and two or three inches on Lincecum, but if the size difference bothers his Master, he doesn't show it. He tips his head back and looks at Buster for a long moment before reaching around to rest his hands on Buster's ass. As Lincecum's fingers move over the welts, Buster catches his breath. Between Lincecum's proximity and the feel of his hands on Buster's sore skin, Buster's fully hard in no time.

"When was the last time you came?"

"Four days ago, Master."

"Oh yeah, they like you going into the auction a little hungry, don't they?"

"Yes, Master."

Because I can't stop...

One of those "Just Who Are These Guys" posts because...well, why not? Also because I found the perfect picture of Tim Linceucm. And then I had two of Posey and I couldn't decide which one to use, but then I realized, there's no such thing as too much Buster. Also, the icon here is very small picture of Buster that's one of my main inspirations.



Buster Posey

Fic!

Chapter Three of "I've Traveled All this Way for Something" is up at AO3.

Chapter Three: First Impressions

"Now turn around."

"Yes Master."

"Huh," Lincecum says, once Buster’s back is turned to them. "He’s pretty pale."

"They don’t go in for tanning much in New York," Hunter says.

"True," Lincecum says. "It’s cool though. I like the way those stripes show up. Single tail?"

"Yeah, during the auction. The way he took it was what finally decided it for me."

Buster blinks in surprise, because really? He remembers how he felt, hurting and just on the verge of coming. How he wanted to make Mistress Allyson proud and how he offered himself up to the audience—if you buy me, you can have this; I can be this for you.

Now he knows that it worked. And, more importantly, that the sight of him, in pain and desperate, convinced Hunter to buy him for Lincecum. It seems that, after four years in the system, Buster’s finally owned by a sadist.

Kind of Helens' fault

But more because why not?

I reblogged this picture from [tumblr.com profile] bigbootyexpress and [personal profile] helens78 said something about not being able to talk while thinking about Buster's thighs and I thought...talking is kinda overrated at times.



more Posey thigh pornCollapse )

Well, now I get it...

[cross posted to tumblr]


I’ve always wondered just how someone can write 50,000 words in a month. I mean, 1667 or so words a day doesn’t sound like much until you’ve missed a few days and start stressing about it, like I ALWAYS do. And maybe that would happen if I’d waited until November and did the whole NaNo thing with this fic. But I didn’t and in the last nine days, I’ve written roughly 20,400 words.

And it’s not like I haven’t gone on writing tears before, but this feels different. For one thing, those tears are usually much shorter stories I bang out in a day or two. This is a much more sustained burst of writing energy. I told sophiahelix that it was coming along faster than the vampire fic did and boy howdy, is it ever. I have no idea how long it’s going to be and, unlike the vampire fic, which essentially had an outline because I followed the 2010 season so closely, I’m writing this without one. I know the destination and some knowledge of the stops on the way, but the actual route? The number of words it takes to get there? I have no idea.

tl;dr I’m writing this thing really fast and that’s kind of blowing my mind.

Huh, I need a subbier icon of Buster here on DW. I'll get on that....

Also, I know this is all I post about, but it's all I'm doing. I take a little time off for The Sims 2 every once in a while but mostly, I'm writing or thinking about writing.
