Ok, I AM CAUGHT UP. Practically just in time, as I believe it comes back on March 31?
this got long... )
IT'S OVER.

Holy cow, I don't know how I made it. And frankly, I'm still not happy with my fic - I still think it needs a lot of help - BUT the deadline has passed, Debut Day has passed, and my brain is an uncreative, wrung dry, pile of MUSH, plus I feel just over it, lol. So maybe once I've recovered, I'll take another pass at it.

mushy mushy brains )

Bang Update

So right now I have about 20k written (with another rough 3k of extra scenes that I've written pieces of, but haven't gotten to in the linear progression of the fic yet). I've adopted a sort of "No Looking Back" policy, which means I'm trying to just pound it all out and not reading back what I wrote to pick, edit, trim, etc.
trying is the key word )
Hey! Ok, update finally. I finished the Bang! *does dance* And I completed the art, AND betaing the other fic. I got it all done. I feel like I'm going through with withdrawal in terms of writing - after how many weeks of hardcore writing, I have no more to do, haha! Anyways, so this post is full of linkage. :D

challenge... COMPLETE )

So as you may or may not know, back in May, I signed up for this fanfic "Big Bang", where you basically have to write a big story in a (relatively) short amount of time (kind of like NaNoWriMo or whatever it's called, which I have never attempted because I am the lethal combination of procrastinator and perfectionist when it comes to writing). For this one, it has to be centered on a het pairing (therefore the genre should be mostly romance), must have 25 000 words or more, and must be done by September 25th.

why yes I AM ridiculous )

Dang.

Ok, clearly the internet is done being my friend for the night. After cutting out repeatedly, now Photobucket isn't working, so Part 3 will have to wait. I would just use TinyPic, but for the purposes of LJ, Photobucket actually works better because it downsizes the desktops to a manageable size. I COULD do thumbnails and link them to bigger versions and stuff using TinyPic but remember a few posts ago when I said I was lazy and this was happening because I was randomly motivated? Ya, still applies. Part 3 will come... soon. 

In the meantime, feel free to check me out on tumblr (HERE) where I am obsessively addicted and spend most of my waking hours. Ok, not quite, but seriously, I can't get off it once I get one without severe difficulty and triumph of will power.

Later!

Hey Ljers, I just wanted to pop up a quick post here and update you. I have a shiny new laptop, I have shiny new Photoshop and I have since made shiny new arts. I promise I haven't abandoned LJ, I've just been busy with Rl and way overly addicted to other websites like tumblr (redrackham87.tumblr.com/). :D

Eventually I will get around to posting art like I used to. Considering my TV schedule this season is freakishly empty (for me - until Survivor comes back in Feb, I'm literally only watching TV Mondays and Thursdays. It's frighteningly empty in comparison to past TV seasons in which I would pretty much have like four or more shows a night, five nights a week) I should be able to find the time.

'Course, my other new addiction is vidding, and I have way too many ideas on my plate for that and not enough mad skillz to execute them (still very much learning Vegas). And I took up being a beta for two different authors over on FF.net before Christmas, and I'm trying to rewrite this one story that I hate, and anyways.

Promise. Eventually.

Ok, just so y'all know that I haven't died...! Here's the deal. My wonderful laptop, which served me so wonderfully for almost 6 years, literally just up and died one day, taking many things, like my Adobe Creative Suite (Photoshop!!! *sob*) with it. I did once upon a time purchase it for school/college, but have since misplaced the discs/package and therefore could not reinstall on the new laptop which I recently purchased. I do have a friend who happened to have CS2, lent it to me, but his licenses are expired/used up, so until I can afford to buy the CS5 upgrade (a good couple more paychecks from now, unfortunately, b/c I'm kind of a pauper these days, LOL) I have no functioning Photoshop.
reader's digest version of the saga continues... )
Thanks to the miraculous program entitled Word Repair, downloaded from the internet, I have saved most of my story and notes. *CHEER* There were random words and lines missing and mixed up, missing punctuation, weird symbols where there should've been dashes or dot-dot-dots, but all in all it was mostly salavaged.

Now, I wasn't going to give you guys anymore for a while, like until I was much farther along, but in celebration of not looing everything, I'm going to give just a little more: the beginning of chapter 2. Enjoy! And feedback very much wanted. :D

...please sir, some more? )

Alrighty, I've got some great news and some horrible news.

The great news: As of now, I am working on a brand new George/Izzie story and it's going to be a long one. The idea came out of nowhere while I was driving one day. I spent almost an entire day creating a very difficult desktop, complete wth tricky photo manipulations. And then my good friend Nicola inspired me to get going and actually write the story! So Nic, this will be dedicated to you. :D And in a moment, I'll give you a chance to see chapter 1... which while it is rather short, it makes for a solid introduction into things. The only things you need to know is that this story will start sometime in later s5, but will be quite AU. The story is currently untitled and in the very early stages.

The bad news:
The word file where I had my outline, ideas, several scenes etc all written decided to up and be corrupt, so I've lost it all. I don't know how long it will take for me to get back what I had, or if it's possible to recover the file. I'm working on it.

Anyways, in the meantime...! I now present to you a sneak peek at the upcoming story, with the first draft of Chapter One. Enjoy, and feedback is oh-so-loved!

O'Malley 2.0... I would be lucky to be the new you... )
