Submissions? [Dec. 6th, 2010|07:33 pm]

I did not do NaNoWriMo. I had planned on doing it but laziness got the better of me, and moving and settling also, so I didn't write a single word in November. But after making a careless mistake at work recently, I realized that I only made it because I don't care about it as much as I used to. So what do I care about? At this point, it's hard to tell. I've made effort to get to a state of peace and stability -- no drama for me -- but now I'm thinking that's not enough. It's time for something new! Or "old".

The new would be fully diving into web development. I still haven't decided if I like it because it's new or because I actually like it.

The old would be writing again. It's been so long that I feel incredibly rusty whenever I try to write snippets, but practice is always good, so you may see more postings from me of first drafts and writing prompts.

Now, a question: does anyone know of any calls for submissions? Targets are always good to have, even if I always miss them. So much for my school motto!

3rd time's NOT the charm! Did NaNoWriMo again this year, this time with more pressure because I made a pact with RL friends that we'd share our work with each other after. It's one thing to share with online friends who've seen my stuff before - I don't mind that as much, because we all write on the Internet. We know what to expect from each other. But with people you've never shown stuff to in real life? That's a little more nerve wracking.

In any case, we agreed, and so here it is, 3rd time around on NaNoWriMo (yes, yes, I know that's against the rules, but I'd rather not waste the rare effort I make in writing). This isn't the official NaNoWriMo version that I submitted - I plugged in the parts I wrote from last year to fill in the gaps for the rest of you.

Original: Truths Unseen. Young Adult. Philippine mythology. 11.7k+ words.

Sala wasn't sure if they could handle the target, but they pressed forward with the plan anyway...Collapse )

Post too large, it says! Next part here.

I haven't been writing so I need to find my voice again. Forgive the stiffness. Am going for quantity this month, so most will be first drafts written on the commuter train.

So. Written for 31 days. No series, just a short I came up with on the fly.

At the door. Original. Short, romance, supernatural. Word count: 534.Collapse )

I tried to do NaNoWriMo but as usual, I slacked and let life get in the way, so this is all I have. Thanks for the company and prodding, swollenfoot! We'll get it next year, ne?

So here it is. Original: Truths Unseen. Young adult. Philippine mythical creatures. Unofficial word count=4,708.Collapse )

And THAT is all I have. Woeeeee! But I'm glad I've written something. I haven't done creative stuff in a while. Me needs more discipline and practice!

Defend yourself, my lady. I will not be gentle.


--
I wonder if it would work better with a semicolon. I know I could use a comma if I said "for I will not be gentle" but I wasn't going for that sound.

Rambling over a single line. It's no wonder I hardly complete anything. ^^

By the by, many thanks to swollenfoot for the birthday gift - a subscription to Writer's Market! *glomps* One step at a time, ne?

Title: The Lines are Drawn
31 Days Theme: March 7th/Hate blows a bubble of despair
Series: YYH
Character: Koenma/Botan
Rating: G
Notes: Writing because I need to get out of my rut. Written for 31_days. This short coming from an epic Koenma/Botan fanfic I haven't got around to writing. Rushed, unrevised, short.

As a ferry girl, Botan wished for a lot of things. Once upon a time, she wished for him. Now, she went to him, knowing that it would never be possible, but hoping, hoping that something could be salvaged.Collapse )


OKAY, I seriously need to sleep now. @_@
