On the bright side, I'm over the word minimum, and for the first time in my life I will write something with length to it, and prove that I can in fact do so.

On the dark side, I'm nowhere near finished and the draft is due in like, a day and a half *panics*. I'll send in what I have with a very apologetic letter as to why it doesn't have an ending. My reason for only being 5,000 words in instead of like, 10,000 (at least) like I wanted is that every single MAJOR assignment for uni was due in fucking October, so LJ got put on the backburner, and reversebang only gives a month (this time around) to write the damn thing.

Also, I have to write my statement of intent for my honours application, due tomorrow. Which I HAVEN'T STARTED AT ALL.

I usually hate acronyms, so here's the full version:

Fuck My Life.

Also, I want Sherlock to come back. I miss it.

Numbered for convenience:

1. I love Matt Nathanson's new song- "Faster". I've had it on repeat for the past three days. It's also possible that [livejournal.com profile] _mournthewicked  wrote a hot little J2 fic in one of her verse's using the song that I can't help but think of nearly every time I hear it.

2. I'm back at uni, have been for one week now, and it's already doing my head in. BASICALLY, I'M GOING TO DIE.

3. I saw Black Swan, and holy moley moses. Can't say I loved it (I need to see it again) but man, did I appreciate. My inner psychologist went WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE, IT'S THE CRAZY. CELEBRATE.

4. That friend I mentioned that I hadn't talked to in months? We're speaking again. It seems it was a misunderstanding involving forgetting to pass on new email information. But, I'm still upset with my best friend ('C') for bailing on our plans. I haven't spoken to her in a while either. Neither has she called me, so I don't know if I can call her my best friend anymore.

5. I've been trying to clean up those unfinished fics I'm planning on posting, but I read them over and just think 'lost cause', 'lost cause' and they're so awful I don't even want to put them up, even under the guise of being unfinished.

- Am going to start working on reverse bang soon, since the deadline is a LOT closer than I originally anticipated, but I know where I'm going with it (which is a first) so I should be able to get to 5,000 (at least) fairly easily. I haven't started yet because there's still a few assignments I have to finish up for uni which are somewhat major and I'm putting off, and I'm finishing up a piece for [livejournal.com profile] paxlux  based on an open prompt/request she made back in like, July or something. Oops. But I'm finally getting somewhere with it, so I don't want to put it to side until it's done.

- I'm not putting up any more of my original-from-class-fiction because one of my assignments is a 'portfolio' of work, and I don't want to accidentally get pulled up for plagiarism should they check it (which they shouldn't, but you never know) and then have to explain that yes, this journal belongs to me, this work is still mine. And so is the fanfic.

- There's a bunch of other unfinished work that I'm thinking I may just post up anyway, because I just don't know if it'll ever get finished. Is it worth putting up unfinished stuff?

- I'm finally catching up on bigbang fics. Really slowly though. (I haven't read anything in MONTHS). I bought an e-reader and downloaded a lot of them in pdf form so that I can read them in private when I'm waitng for class to start.

- This last line goes out to [livejournal.com profile] mimblexwimble  because I wish so much that I knew her in RL.

I have high expectations of myself for this, and my fingers permanently crossed in optimism.

I need something to get me happy about writing- I've written two stories for [livejournal.com profile] hs_bingo but am scrapping them, cause they're like, seventh grader level/newbie crap. I think it may have something to do with the fact I'm going through another depression episode. Anyway, I'm excited for this.

I may have finished a new story. This... is very very good. One, because its's been too long and *fist pump* I ACTUALLY FINISHED something recently and two, because now I can concentrate on my upcoming exam and not procrastinate any further (which is what I've been doing with writing this).

I'm excited for it. I was really proud of myself with it up until tonight, when I suddenly went "oh god, this is crap" but I think it's due to the fact I've been editing as I go, so I've reread it a thousand times over and the words have lost their touch. Anyway, later today (because it's three am) I'll do another edit on it, because I think the ending's still a little sketchy and so I should have it up tomorrow, which is awesome, because tomorrow is my birthday (this fact both pleases and somewhat terrifies me).

bee tee dub, I've been totally squeeing over big bangs. I've had to stop though because urgh, exams at the end of this week and through next week (what awful timing, I want to read fic! Not uni things!) but I've been in utter delight at what we've had so far, and can't wait for the rest of them.
lemanya: (S.A.M. 2000.)

Here's an excerpt from something I'm currently working on:

Sam gapes up at him and whispers Dean! You're not supposed to say things like that! And yeah, Dean knows that, doesn't really know why he said that, only December's eyes are big and grey and she brought it up first anyway, and Dean kinda feels like she's okay, like she'll get it, and won't ask questions.

Read it out loud. And then laugh, because that second half... it's ridiculous right? I should change it because it rhymes so freaking wierdly... and completely by accident. I only just spotted it now, doing a readthrough, didn't occur to me in writing.

It is wierd yeah... it's not just me? And I need to fix it?

lemanya: (bb what did I do)
So I signed up.

Oh, Christ...

On another note, I'm almost finished an original fiction that was for a Notebook in Hand challenge, but couldn't finish on time, so it should be posted within the next few days. Fingers crossed.
And my moods have been all over the place. Part of it is exhaustion- I've been working six out of seven nights for the past two weeks and it's just taking it's toll- I was so tired yesterday I cried because my mother didn't tell me she was coming home instead of going out. Yeah, I know.
And I found out recently that my best friend from uni isn't coming back this year because she needs to work so once it starts back up I have to go through the whole "making friends" process all over again.

And today has just been waay to hot. Over 40 degrees celsius, which translates to 104 degrees Farenheit. It's insane. It's now nearly eight o'clock pm, and though the temperature has dropped, there are cold things I still need: I have one ice cold cloth draped over each leg, another ice cold cloth alternating between my stomach and the back of my neck, and an ice pack tucked in under my bra clasp. I'm melting.



The munchkins would be pleased.

is up to 4,444 words.

well, not really, since I'm transfering what I've got written on paper into the computer word document so there's actually a lot more than 4,444 words in total written down. But I thought it was so cute that I checked the words count and it was a quadruple four. Like, for instance, the first time I ever checked the word count on this story it was sitting at 666 and I freaked with joy cause it was so cool.

That's all. Totally uninteresting but I'm really really tired so it seems like a brilliant idea at the moment to let everyone know that hey- 4,444 words!

And on a related note, it can not be fully expressed just how excited I am that Supernatural returns in like, less than seven days. And dude, it's not even returning in my county on September tenth- so goodbye download usage! (but omg omg omg omg omg).
