I signed up for twreversebangtwreversebang and sort of regret nothing?

I hope I get art that can inspire me to write at least 3000 words. I mean, I've written 1800 words based on nothing more than a prompt, so having a picture should help more, right?

We'll see once art preview is posted on April 9th (and claiming on April 11th). I have a feeling it's going to be like how it was for h50_reversebangh50_reversebang but more competitive and I'll be staying up all night (10th to 11th) to make sure I get the piece I want.

I mentioned Kim offering my a place to stay. That's still a go and this week I'm going to start moving stuff over. Mostly on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays since I don't have a car and have to work with the schedule of other people.

My mom's packed up the DVDs in the living room and she's going to ship like 3 or 4 boxes back to her sister's so that they're already there for when she gets there.

I need to pack up the shelves in the kitchen so that I can wipe them down and they can be ready for the yard sale my sister convinced my mom she should have. Whatever. I still get the money from it.

I haven't heard back from any of the last 3 or 4 places I sent my resume to or interviewed with. Everyone keeps saying "something's around the corner!" or "God's going to send something your way soon!" I smile and nod, but in my head I'm just like shove it. Platitudes like that don't do anyone any good.

I wrote a teen wolf ficlet. It got more hits/kudos on AO3 than I thought it would. I'm sure if it was longer I would have gotten some other comments. The last 3 or 4 days I've been thinking about doing a Sterek big bang? I don't even know what my life has become! I didn't even start writing McDanno stuff until I'd been in the H50 fandom for a couple of years. I'm not even "in" the Teen Wolf fandom and I'm already contemplating (it's outlined in my head, but shh) a Sterek BB.

Also, I'm in the last 9 days or so of a 30 day fic writing challenge on tumblr. It's been an interesting ride, that's for sure. This one is McDanno/McWilliams (Mary McGarrett/Matt Williams). I'm already thinking there's going to be a sequel.

and now to read some fic before bed.

After procrastinating for a little over a month, then writing in fits and starts, I FINALLY FINISHED MY [livejournal.com profile] h50_reversebang  FIC!

I was hoping that it would be around 10,000 words, but when the minimum word count was lowered to 5000 words, that was much more reasonable for me, and my fic is around 6581 words!

The fic is due on Sunday and has already been beta read. I'm going to give it another read through before submitting/posting it.

Also, have to see what the posting procedure for the community is as well. I've never participated in a reverse big bang before.

So as soon as I'm able to post, I'll share here too.
simplyn2deep: (Scott Caan::writing)
so productive with my h50-reversebangh50-reversebang fic!

chapter 1: 1100 words written
chapter 2: outlined
chapter 3: outlined
chapter 4: outlined
chapter 5: needs to be outlined

I want to say I have another 900 words to write for chapter 1, but thinking about what I have outlined that's left to write, it'll probably be another 1,000-1,100 words.

I've got roughly 8 weeks to write 10,000 5,000 words! I can do this!
simplyn2deep: (NWABT::Scott::brood)
I've taken the first tests in my 4 classes.

87%, 81%, 80% and 76%.

I got the 76% because the instructor gave everyone in the class 4 extra points, otherwise, I'd have 68%. I'm not pleased with this at all. I know there's 3 or 4 other tests in the class, but I just don't like/can't follow how the instructor does the lecture (he basically re-reads the book in between telling real life stories and insulting people in the class). I'm going to have to do extra credit because I want to pass the class with a B, though for transferring, a C is acceptable.

The other 3 classes are much better because we have a workbook that we fill out as the lecture goes - we're basically writing our own textbook for the class.

Also, today in my second class 2 people were supposed to bring cookies and what do you know...they weren't in class! The teacher said on Tuesday we need to "narc on them" and he'd take care of the rest. Also next Tuesday another girl is supposed to bring cookies and next Thursday another guy is supposed to bring cookies. We'll see if they remember. LOL

Right now I'm in the campus computer lab charging my phone and using the computer. Once my phone is charged, I'll be heading home with a stop at storage. I sold a couple of textbooks from when I was taking classes with ICDC. One book I had in my room and the other I hope is in storage or I'll have to refund the girl her money (and she started classes on October 7).

In more enjoyable news...I've been writing nearly every day this month. Not thousands of words or anything, but like 250-400 words on a good day. On a really good day I can do 500-700 words. Last week I did nearly 1000 words. I wish all these words were going towards a fic I can post soon, but it's for a big bang that won't start posting until FEBRUARY! Isn't that ridiculous?! I'm probably like 2000 words from finishing it, and I'll have to sit on the fic for 5 months! I need to remember to message the mod and ask if there was a way to move the posting date up if a majority of the writers are finished so that artist can claim a fic to do art and we can get this big bang moving along.

There are certain numbers, that when they show up on my caller ID, I sort of freak out, but "OMG, who died?" or "OMG who's sick?"

but this time it was different. My friend called to ask if I wanted to go with her to Menifee to drop off some animals (a chicken and 5 kittens) at her cousin's place. Apparently the cousin was supposed to come down yesterday but the engine on their truck blew, so then today my friend was going to go with her parents, but said parents aren't feeling well...so she called an asked me. Cool!

I get out of being at church! YES!

While I do have a bit of work to do, if I get there early enough, I can get a good chunk of it done before she comes, then we can leave.

It takes about 1.5 hrs to get there, then I figure an hr or so getting the animals situated, lunch, then come home. I should be home by like 3 or 4 pm...which would sort of be like last Sunday with all that I had going on at church.

The downside now, is my lack of writing time. and I'm so close to finishing part 2 of Fair Winds and Following Seas. I don't care if I have to stay up all night, I will post it tonight!
simplyn2deep: (Scott Caan::writing)
I knocked my writing out of the park today! 2,214 words!

and this is maybe 2/3 done?

I've seriously got the best cheerleader in the world! Over the last 17 days I've written 6981 words!

That more than doubles my goal!

most productive I've been...EVER!

Working on a story I adopted from someone on ff.net

I'm completely re-doing it...or making it more my own while keeping the limited plot that the original author had.

Details go a long way to filling out a story and making it better!

I'm not going to post this story until it's complete because I don't want to fall into the current trap I'm in of posting a fic as I work on it..then losing interest as I get to the end.

But according to my cheerleaders, it's already 1000% better than the original. I hope that continues as I get to the "meat" of the story.

as of 10:33 pm, my McDanno Spring Fling fic for stevedannoslashstevedannoslash is finished!

The total is about 12,630 words! That's about 2,000 more words than last year's fic!

Right now, I'm doing a read through and waiting to see what my betas have to say. I'll be posting late Sunday/early Monday morning.

I wish I could see how the apartment looks now. I want to have some idea of how plain my room is going to be until I can properly decorate.

I still don't know what the general "theme" of my room is going to be. I mean when I was packing up everything for the move, I toyed with the idea of having a tropical/Hawaii Five-0 theme (thanks in part to the "Hawaii Five-0 Survival Bag" that bluedelftbluedelft gave me in July), but I don't have nearly enough "tropical' decorations. I guess that means I'll have to raid some party stores and possibly order some prints from Art.com (a search of Hawaii alone gives me over 1,000 options!)

M & J have been at some church related conference since the day after Christmas and come back today. Yesterday was the family dinner night so I went with my sister (free food so I wouldn't have to cook or order fast food). Holy crap was it an unorganized dinner! They had it semi-catered in that they ordered the dinner from Panda Express and everything else was provided by some of the parents of the youth. Well, my sister was told she was supposed to get the food but she couldn't get a hold of the person who ordered it. She tried calling him 3 times! Then she found out from someone else that the man who ordered it went to get it because it was "too far away" and he didn't want her to "get lost or be late to the dinner". Dinner was supposed to start at 5 but it didn't start until nearly 6 because they were waiting for the guy to come with the food! Then at 7 there was a church service kind of thing. That went until 10. It was supposed to be over at 9 because there was going to be a talent show at 10, but the talent show didn't start until 10:30. J asked my sister (and by extension me) to stay because she was in a drama skit. We had to sit through 3 or 4 acts before my niece's group was up...then we stayed for one more group before leaving at midnight! There went my plan of watching a movie before going to sleep! But I did get Taco Bell and watched the last 10 minutes of Benny Hill before trying to get warm enough to go to sleep.

Today...I don't know what I'm going to do. It's freezing (it's 55 degrees but that's still too cold for me!) and there's a bit I want to do (after holiday shopping) but I don't want to spend hours on the bus dealing with cold and possibly having to stand because there's so many people out using the bus. Also, I don't know if I want Taco Bell or Panda Express for lunch...or if I'll even be able to stop and get lunch (if I get dropped off, there will be no stopping for lunch, sadly).

Small group in church today! 7 counting myself! Last Sunday there was over 50 but that was because the Spanish speaking members came out early. The Pastor had surgery on the 22nd to remove his colon! The surgery went fine but I don't know if he's home or has been moved to an aftercare facility. But with him out, that means his wife is out and so is Lora.

Also, internet is being a bitch. I'm going to write. I got back chapter 19 of But Why Daddy? from my beta, so now I can fret about chapter 20.
simplyn2deep: (NWABT::Scott::hoodie)
I have 8 days to finish my h50_holidayswaph50_holidayswap fic! It's due on December 24th!

Since I scrapped (sort of) the last 2 fics I had in mind for this, I have a grand total of zero words for this new idea.

Also, I know I was supposed to have contributed twice to [community profile] fannish_advent/fannish_adventfannish_advent, but I just haven't had the motivation. sucks hardcore! But I did download some Polar Express screencaps so I can make some icons and hopefully post them before the comm closes for the season. *crosses fingers*

Anyways...I'm gonna do some writing now.

PS it seems my work internet speed is back to where it should be. I think it slowed down so much because I'd done a lot of downloading. My laptop can't/won't connect to my sister's wireless and she makes a lot of noise when one of her kids asks to use her laptop to type up some school papers, so I'd rather not have that annoyance directed towards me.
simplyn2deep: (Hawaii Five 0::Kono::red top)
it feels like I'm missing out on a lot of stuff since I don't have the internet 24/7 (update on that in a bit), but when I get to my office, which is where I'm at for a 3rd time today because of internet withdrawals lol, nothing has really been updated.

I don't spend lots of time on sites like AOL Rocks or Book 'em Danno, but I do follow the updates on twitter and/or facebook.

There haven't been any new fic posted that I haven't already read...but I'm not in the right area to write - I have the words, but not my usual writing place (my bedroom).

Last night, Jasmine asks my sister to turn on her T-Mobile HotSpot so she could get on the internet. I wasn't asked if I wanted to get on the internet as well, so I decided to call T-Mobile and see what I would need to do to get it myself. After over an hour and 2 different tech calls, it turns out, my service plan includes the HotSpot feature! I just needed to turn it on, and connect my laptop to it! Well that's great! I get walked through it and by all accounts, it should connect me to the internet, however, that's not the case. The signal is being sent to my laptop, but something is preventing my laptop from receiving the wireless signal! I don't think T-Mobile tech support can help with that. My next option is to ask John (the church's computer go-to guy and my boss' husband) or wait until January when my parents return and have my dad to look at it. But I'd go to the Geek Squad before asking my dad because he doesn't exactly have the best track record with setting up wireless internet at home.

Like I said, I just feel like I'm missing out on stuff even though my LJ feed hasn't been updated in the last 30 minutes, but before that it was something like 5 hours between updates! I could work on graphics. I haven't done any for h50icontesth50icontest since challenge 66 and challenge 68 is going on.

This morning I went to the dentist for a follow up check up from the deep cleaning I had last month. My gums are doing better, but I still have an infection that's making my gums bleed. You poke at my gums with something sharp, of course they're going to bleed! Since having the deep clean, I've brushed my teeth 3 times a day and flossed twice and you know what...NO BLEEDING! but the dentist says the infection is still there and my broken teeth really need to come out because they're causing or contributing to the infection. So December 14 is my next appointment. At that appointment an impression of my teeth will be taken and 2 teeth will be extracted. Then I figure that every couple of months I'll go back to have the remaining 4 broken teeth removed. Hoping that by next September I'll be done with the expensive dental work and can just deal with the regular cleaning every 3 or 4 months.

Got a couple of movies from Redbox. Battleship and Starship Troopers: Invasion. I don't usually watch a movie that's apart of a series without seeing the ones before it, but the Starship Troopers: Invasion trailer looked really interesting. I was also surprised there weren't other movies that I wanted to see. I usually get 4 or 5 movies out at a time. This time it was obviously only 2.

Umm got a call from a collection agency while I was at the dentist. I don't know why as I don't have any bills in collections. So I call them back and they said they don't have my name in their system? So I ask about my dad's name thinking it might be in regards to his student loan and his name wasn't in the system either. Okay, weird. I'm also very curious. I might call back and ask for the person who called (I didn't ask for the person when I first called) to see what's going on.

Went to Costco and got a membership. I really don't need it, but having it will come in handy in getting food while staying with my sister and also for church dinners. Plus, since I can drive, I don't have to rely on my parents to take me if I need to pick up cat liter (Costco seems to be the only place that sells the brand that doesn't cause my cat problems). However, there are several downsides to having a membership. The books and movie section. No joke, there were about 20 books I wanted to get! Sadly, the movies I wanted were in blu ray only and i don't have a blu ray player. Also, I can buy stamps and movie theater tickets at costco. I see myself going to the movies more in 2013. Costco doesn't take Visa credit card (American Express is their card of choice), so I have to make sure I have the cash or money in checking account to write a check or use my debit card. The last of American Express will keep me from spending more than I can afford that's for sure.

I know I owe fills for Trick or Treating and they'll be worked on tomorrow. I downloaded some fall kits and need to unzip them and see what strikes my fancy to make things. Also, I need to write another 500 words so that willow_fae_20willow_fae_20 can fill another of my bookmarked comment_ficcomment_fic prompts. Everyone should read Still Allowed to Worry that she wrote.

Thank you dante_s_helldante_s_hell, bluedelftbluedelft, tkeylasunsettkeylasunset, and willow_fae_20willow_fae_20 (and to anyone else I forgot to thank) for the virtual gifts

• The Pastor & his wife want to go to Mexico to visit the church we helped build back in the 70s and since travel requirements have changed since the last time they went (back in 2006 I believe), they have to get a passport. Every month for the last 2 years I swear they’ve been asking me to help them with the paperwork and now that a trip is actually planned (November 12), I’ll be going to their house tomorrow to help them with it, then sometime this week driving them to the passport agency in Downtown LA so that it can be expedited. Current wait time (from the time it’s dropped off to be processed to the time you get it) is 4-6 weeks and they need it in 4 weeks. Pastor’s wife asked me if I wanted to go to Mexico with them. I said I’d like to, but I simple didn’t have $105 for the passport card and fee to have it expedited. She then asked me that if she and the pastor had the additional money for me to get my passport, if I would go. I said yes because they’re going on a day when the courthouse will be closed and it’s just a turnaround trip – leave California early in the morning and come back late at night. The Spanish church that uses our facility will be going as well.

• Apparently we’re out of packing boxes. This isn’t good as I actually want to pack the clothes in my closet (I won’t be taking them with me to my sister’s) and my blankets and sheets…and other stuff. My dad said I had to have my room packed up (with the exception of what I was taking to my sister’s) by next week. HA! Fat chance of that happening without boxes.

• I think after this week, I’m going to e-mail J & N at Legal Aid and let them know that I won’t be available to volunteer until November 14th – at the latest. I need to devote as much time to packing, not only my room, but helping my parents with the kitchen and living room, then we have to move the stuff to storage and it’ll go by slower if I’m not there to help them.

• Called a vet about boarding Ms Marple. They only offer it to clients/patients, and if I wanted my cat to be boarded there, I’d have to have them conduct a physical on her and make sure her shots are up to date. Walk in appointments are Mondays 2-4 pm and its $25. Okay, I can do that and that’s what I’ll be doing tomorrow afternoon. I hope my cat doesn’t hate me. The last time she went to the vet, she was given a shot to help with her scratching as she had an allergic reaction to fleas a couple of years ago.

Now on the writing front:
• It’s safe to say that all this packing as made it damn near impossible for me to write. I dropped out of journeystoryjourneystory last week.

• On the 14th assignments are sent out for h50_holidayswaph50_holidayswap with posting being sometime between December 12-23

• For mpregbigbangmpregbigbang, I have 1 month, 3 weeks and 5 days until an 8,000 word rough draft is due on December 3rd. Thankfully, I'll be able to write (hopefully undisturbed) at my sister's place. I have a grand totally of zero words written, but an idea of what I want to write.

• My spook_mespook_me fic is due October 26. Thankfully I can do a drabble for that if push comes to shove.

• My fic for h50_harlequinh50_harlequin is due to be posted October 26-31. I haven't started on that either. A few weeks ago, I thought I'd be able to get 1,000 word minimum, but I got maybe a paragraph in and my muse decided to go on vacation!

I think that’s all my writing projects! I really hope I haven’t missed anything.

And this bullet point entry is done!

Danny keeps hearing about 'Miss Kono' who is Grace's surf instructor (to Danny's amusement, not chagrin -- he's more laidback in this 'verse). When he finally meets her sparks fly. Apparently it sort of ended with the potential for sparks flying.
