Things!
  • Valentine's Day Meme. I've left some prompts; come on, guys, don't leave me lonely! (Other pairings you know I like such as Rydia/Quistis or Ellone/Anyone are totally fair game guyz.)

  • [livejournal.com profile] ff_exchange could still use your feedback in the poll, if you want to be a part of the SUPER COOL FINAL FANTASY EXCHANGE this summer!

  • If I can figure out how to work it, there might be a porn meme in [livejournal.com profile] ff_smutathon for Valentine's Day. Requires thinking though. Any interest?

Nerdy Pictoral Representation Of My Progress:


Notes on JanNoWriMo )

Goals for February:
  • Write 15,000 words, total. This is so I get ahead on [livejournal.com profile] getyourwordsout in Feb, because in March I'll be drawing.

  • Finish Seifer/Irvine AU, 0tp Prompts, and get at least halfway with Beacon outline.

  • Write at least one freaking piece of porn.


Anyway! I've seen a few JanNoWriMo Summaries on the F-List, so~! Let me know how you did in the comments if I haven't talked to you yet (or just point me to the entry). :) Go our team, guys! OI!
seventhe: (Quistis: smarter than you!)
I'm spammy today, guys, sorry.

I've been thinking about NaNoWriMo this year, as always. I'd write Beacon, like I always do, and probably make a lot of progress on it. But again, we're going on a Thanksgiving vacation, and as amazing as I am I don't think I can write the required 50,000 words in 20 days. I didn't last year, and I didn't the year before. And ILU NaNo, but I'm not giving up my vacation this year.

So I thought... why not do something different? I've been wanting to draw more, and I've been wanting to get into Beacon. So I thought, maybe I'll draw, one page of Beacon every day. Not totally FINISH like through the computer and everything, but draw in the sketchbook, one page of the comic every day. If I get behind, I'll draw two pages. At the end, I'll have a start, and I can scan them in and start working on them in Photoshop while I (hopefully) continue the story. The other benefit is that a sketchbook could come on vacation with me, technically. (I'm not sure whether I'd stick to it, but there's a chance.)

On the one hand, writing, yay! Getting back into it, getting more story down. On the other hand, drawing! Finally making myself draw daily to get better.

So I can't decide. And because my batch totally F-ed up and I'm cranky, I figured I'd write a poll on it. What do you guys think?

[Poll #1275003]

Cute things, more self-insert fic (what is wrong with me?!!), and a super-long ramble on my origiverse. What could be better??

NaNoWriMo Meme: Stealed from [livejournal.com profile] lassarina and [livejournal.com profile] katmillia.


Novel Title: Seven Beacons
Estimated length: Long. Fucking long.
Your writing experience: Since childhood. Ha. Lots of absurdly long fanfiction since 7th grade.
Your genre: Fantasy
New genre? Or old favorite?: Old favourite. Stick with what you like!
Other genres of your novel: Action/Adventure, Mystery/Suspense, Drama, Science
Gonna publish?: I WISH

Cliches/archetypes you're including (not necessarily a bad thing!): Ragtag group of random heroes saving the world, mysterious boy with sooper speshul powers, hell - everyone with sooper speshul powers, airships squee!
Cliches/archetypes you're avoiding: One-dimensional characters, male/female archetypes (can we say male white mage?), saving the world always works out in the end, magic not having any scientific explanation
Theme(s)/Issue(s) discussed: Overcoming weaknesses of all kinds for a greater good, strength in the face of huge adversity, religion vs spirituality vs faith, science is a good thing!, when you're trying to save the world make sure you know what you're doing
What we (the readers) will learn: Um, I'm just hoping that the story will rock your ass off.

Main character(s): Morgan DeLumens, Flash Hermes, Armenise Prynne, Nerea Levia, Ashain, Dianali Noir, Forte Pyrus, Rafe
Secondary characters: Herman, Kina, Nimo, Dyina, Raissa, Mentany, Daive, etc...
Protagonist(s): All, really, but Part One: Morgan and Part Two: Ashain
Antagonist(s): Rafe, the Extari, the Seven Sins, the world...
What does your protagonist(s) or main character(s) want most in the world?: Oh hell. They all want something different, really. To generalize ... In Part I they want to end the war; in Part II they need to save the world.

Setting: fantasy planet, ~1000 years after a huge war which destroyed most civilization, and in the midst of another war which has been going on for ~60 years.
Is the setting static or does it shift: It will shift as the characters meet each other and travel.
Is a place/culture/real-world environment? (Which): Ha! Hahaha! Um, no, it's all made up, to the point where it's governed by imaginary laws of thermodynamics!

Main Conflict: In Part I the main conflict is the war between the North and the South and how the East fits into it; in Part II the main conflict is a good-and-evil, save-the-world battle.
Sub Conflicts: Alllll kinds. So much of the story is the individual characters overcoming their internal weaknesses.
Obstacles in the journey: Loyalties, technologies, beliefs, secrets and mystery
Expected resolution(s): Well, I'm pretty sure they save the world the second time, because they sure fuck it up good the first time.

Summary of plot: There's been war between the North and the South for over sixty years, but it's not what it seems: a secret is discovered which could unravel the truth behind the conflict. A handful of people contain the information needed to piece together this puzzle, and at the center of it stand two men, both with no past and no name.

Tagline (a one-sentence slogan that sums up the tone and premise of your novel): READ MY STORY, I'LL WRITE YOU PORN! Um. Kidding. I'll think of one later.

Working on a brand-new chapter of Beacon over at [livejournal.com profile] seven_beacons.

Man, I'm inspired by Beacon lately.

I need to stop drinking on work nights. I'm tired.
seventhe: (Reno: Chill)
OK, so Jim and I have been working on the Beacon timeline a whole fuckton in the past couple days. It makes me drool. I love this project so freaking much. We have done such awesome things with these characters and this plot - it's the best plot ever - and I'm just so excited about the way we work together and the things we've come up with.

It's a shame it won't ever really become an RPG, because it'd be the best thing ever.

It's also a shame that I can't really draw, because it would also make a great webcomic. I'd love to start it, because it would help me learn to draw good (and do other things good too). I just have all this ambition and no followthrough. I can just never find the time, or the willpower.

Ah well. I can write, and I do write, so at least the story will get realized in that way.

So, I think I'm off to write another chapter.

(I love my job. It's not that I have nothing to do - oh trust me, I sure fucking do - but it's that those things are all like, running batches. To make a batch of polymer there are a bunch of steps, and some of the steps take a set amount of time, like "wait until you reach this temperature" or "charge this much monomer at this rate". Which is perfect for writing - it gives me a bunch of 20-min breaks throughout the day, so I can churn out drabbleistic crap and still be productive at work!)
