Severus woke feeling rather strange... )

Oi Life

I got up today in the perfect mood to write. My Muse was finally allowing me to think about my WIP.

I have since opened three different documents and written, at best, 100 words.

The DOT has decided to aimlessly, for hours on end, roll a bulldozer over the empty plot next door. The noise, though loud, I could drowned out. The intermittent shaking of the building? Not so much.

I suppose I should be glad that it isn't the vibratory soil compactor (steamroller) again. That rattled the building so much it made Mom and I nauseous. Mom had to go to Ann's to sleep, and I spent the day herding brats so they wouldn't wake her up.

So now I'm irritated and my Muse has completely fled. *whimper*

State of Sarah

Realized it's been a while since I did an update on what's up with me so...

Last semester was pretty hectic. But I did alright grade wise I got 4 A's and a C.

I'm taking 461 Alaskan History and it lasts for six weeks. Yay, cause I'll get the other 8 weeks of summer off, in trade for2 hour lectures 4 days a week. The reading load is kind of intense, and we'll have a paper/presentation and final exam. Hopefully it will be fine. I like professor Cole, so that is a plus.

It doesn't seem like we'll have to move this summer after all, but I don't know if that is a good thing or not.

Ann's GF is due to have another baby in a week or so.

Mom's got grand jury duty this month, it's kind of a pain since we share a vehicle. I've been at Uni since before 7am and won't get to leave until my class ends at 6pm. Oh well.

So, yeah. That's the highlights for now. How are you all doing?

Things, Stuff and Creative Writing 275

So my Dears, I am embroiled in school work - about usual for this time of year. What little brain power I have left over from that has gotten sucked into the BBC Sherlock fandom. XD I know. Like I needed another one. So expect something from that eventually. (I may or may not be thinking about contributing to the Red Pants Monday madness)


For my Creative Writing class we have to create a character and then post in the characters blog. (yes, from the character's pov/as if the character was writing them). This includes replying to comments and making comments on classmates' blogs in character.

I've created the character John Henry Alistair, and set him up with an LJ. [info]not_a_watson If you're bored feel free to take a look at it. There is only the hometown post at this point but there are more to follow. If you comment I will reply as JHA. :P

We've had one long assignment so far (2k words) and a drabble, I've decidded to do any non-specific assignments as part of the greater cannon of John Henry. I'm thinking of either posting those here or adding them to [info]not_a_watson somehow after the class is finished. Thinky-thinky.

I'm putting the bio that I created below. Comments are appreciated -- you know I value you guys' opinions over my classmates'. :D [Srsly guys, you would not believe some of the stuff I'm currently peer reviewing.:\ ]

Old School Challenge @ [info]windles_orbit

Dust off your old fandoms and give 'em a spin!

Sadly in the world of fanfiction once a show goes off air, or a book series finishes, often times the fandom goes dormant. Writers move on and pick up the latest shiny things, but deep down we still love those golden oldies. Now is the time to play with an former fav that's been gathering dust on the shelf.

The rule is 3 years. Anything that had its finale/publication/theater run 3+ years ago is fair game. For books, they also shouldn't have had a movie in theaters in the last 3 years. For Comics - not the current reboot or timeline (or whatever you want to call it when they rewrite canon).

I'd like to see these for Valentines (Thursday 2/14/13) but I'm leaving the challenge open ended so if you can't make that, post when you can.



For a double dose of OLD SCHOOL use one of these fandom staples as prompts:

Snowed In (aka Blanket fic, or Storm Trapped)
Sex Pollen
Off to the Wars
Don't Wanna Die a Virgin

Woke Up Married (aka Vegas Wedding)
We're Dating??
Secret Admirer
Blind Date

He's What? (aka Secret Agent Man, or OMG, I'm Dating a Vampire!)
In Love With My Best Friend
Geek Gets Guy

Mistaken Gender (aka Cross-dress Dare)
Wrong Side of the Tracks



*Challenge is currently running at [info]windles_orbit. Please post fics, or links to the comm.*

Writers craft

With my Uni Eng classes one thing that the Profs have been trying to get us thinking about is the craft of writing. Styles, process, et cetera. This is something I would love to talk about more... only not really with most of the kids in my classes who are taking them to fill requirements and not because they want to write/like writing.

So, question: Is anybody else interested in doing some kind of interactive discussions? It would be on topics like first line/first page or natural dialog or perfect world versus grity reality or writer's block - anything really. Would you rather try chat-room-something or stick to comments in LJ or a mix of the two?

~pokes~ Ideas?

Dress project from summer

From Bratling's B-Day part. She liked the dress, so I'm happy.

I think I might stop following one of my sew-craft groups. (Not saying which one, so I can whine w/o hurting anybody's feelers.)

I still enjoy seeing the pretty things people have made, and picking up tips here and there. But I'm awful tired of seeing thinly veiled adverts for professional/semi-professional shops. ~sigh~ It's turned to the point where better than half of the post are "Here is my latest thing. Shot with professional model [link], with photographer/studio [link]. Oh, and by the way my shop [link].

I wouldn't even mind these if they had more wordy-bits about why they did things or what they were going for, or problems they had/adverted.

Which is my whole point in following the group. I want to see what neat costume-thingies people make and what went wrong/right/could have been better. So I can take that and apply it something I'm doing or plotting. :P

Gift Art: BDQ's Cover Me

I'm working on clipping [info]blkdragonqueen's Cover Me, a 2600+ page (ongoing) monster Transformers fanfic into book size bits for easier reading. I've made covers to go with the PDFs. Snag them for your own copies of the fic, if you have a version you prefer. But please don't crop/edit.

These are for the first 7 arcs, I'll post the rest as I finish.

brains?

So my Sisters girlfriend just announced that she is throwing a birthday party for her daughter at ChuckyCheese in two weeks. Not a bad thought for her age group.

But.

There is no CC in Fairbanks. This means driving south360 miles to Anchorage. Yeah. Plus her kid doesn't live in Fairbanks anyway she lives 150 miles north of Fairbanks.

For her friends it's a 360-510 mile trip. One way.

Factor in motel rooms and the suddenness... *sigh* THINK. people.

So I'm not going, Mom's not going... don't know who they expect to go, really. Mom's kinda bummed because she took vacation day so she could go to the kid's b-day party, which was supposed to happen like two days before this CC thing is happening.

stuff and things #something

I signed up to do [info]inspired20in20icon challenge again. This time I picked Big Bang as my topic. so now I'm going to need to screen cap some music vids. Oh the hardship. Watch pretty boys sing music that I like, maybe repeatedly? What ever shall I do? ~_^ The theme for the month is "Year In, Year Out" and is basically icon trends from the year - as seen in the comm. Not a bad one really; there is a lot to choose from and the styles are broad enough it's not pegged in.

I'm nearly done with my Hist 132 class. Took the final this morning, now I'm down to essaying. :P Whats been holding me back with that is we have to watch Full Metal Jacket as part of our source material and, well ... I really, really don't want to. I've got a bit of a squick about war movies, particularly ones based on real events or about real wars. Unfortunately it's a big enough chunk of grade that I can't just blow it off. Oh well, gotta step up I guess.

Today was my B-Day! I've officially survived another year. Went to Seoul Gate, a Korean restaurant, for lunch with the ladies. Sadly the connected grocer was closed. :( Connie and I were both looking forward to picking up some stuff - neither one of us really bothers to go just to shop.

So. Yeah, That's what I'm up to. Hope everyone has a smashing 4th of July! Or, at least a good Over the Hump Day! :)

Question

Is anyone else frustrated with the slew of posters fiddling with the text color/size when they post to groups? Is this just my bad luck?

I feel like commenting that I can't even see most of what they've writen in the header so I'm not going to bother even going to read the fic. Or pointing out that if they want specific text elements the place to format them is in their journal setting.

IDK. I'm just sick of seeing black text (my journal has black bkg), or super over sized text (we're talking 60-ish point).

So - too bitchy? Do you think it's just that people don't know? I wouldn't mind someone going "Just so you know, I can't read this. Please format text color/size in your journal settings, instead of posts." Would you be insulted?

\o/ Finished CIOS (a ramble)

I got my Final project in and all the assignments. So glad to be done with that class. I love InDesign but the teacher has been a pain.

I'm looking forward to free time. I'm going to paint this summer and sew the dresses I got fabric for last summer if it kills me. I've been writing a bit at work. Nothing spectacular, just odds and ends of things. But at least it's something.

I'm going with Gray' to see Lilly Tomlin on Tuesday. I'm wearing the dress I bought for my class reunion -- since that has turned into a BBQ event. Not wearing my dress to that, kids+food=stains, so gotta wear it somewhere. :P

Ann+GF+Baby stayed with us a couple of nights while they were moving into their new place. They had to be out of the old before they could get into the new. Not too bad a thing since I worked until right before they go to bed and then sleep while they are up.

Talked to landlord about the DOT buying our building and if things go like they have been we might not be moving until spring/summer next year.

Mom is making me 7 layer dip for Cinco de Mayo. |o/ I'm thinking of getting stuff for margaritas after work.

Hmmmm that's about everything. TTFN Lovelies!

Shhh Working

So I'm at work (it's the down time of my shift before the night crew gets here, after the day crew has left) and one of the guys was singing the fraggle rock theme song. I'm reading Harry Potter fic right now so my mind, crazy place it is, starts to ponder weather Harry might have liked some fraggle companions in his "room" under the stairs.

yeah.

Anyone seen any HP/Fraggle Rock x-overs?
