That is where my brain is right now.

Fanfic
Still obsessed with fic of the Supernatural variety, though I've been a little nostalgic for SG-1 lately. And Smallville. But currently, I've been spending some time working on my wing!fic series for SPN. The sad part is that I have most of the series planned out and I have fun with it. It gives me something to work on that's a bit stress free. I've just struggled with having the time. I'd say that I'm about 3/4 of the way through the current fic I'm writing in the series. If I'm lucky, I'll finish another scene tonight.

I'm about near the climax and then I'll have the wrap up scenes. As always, my philosophy on LJ is not to post it until it's finished or a couple of scenes away from completed. However, I'm not as anal about it on fanfiction.net where I've posted a few chapters to see how it would look. I don't read WIPs myself, but if anyone is interested in the wing!fic universe, you can check out the first four chapters there: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/9284489/1/The-Second-Deviation

No worries if you pass. I'll post it here for anyone interested when it's done anyway. :)

Original
As for my original stuff, I had a breakthrough this month and it's taken a new direction. The first time in a long time I feel like I know what I'm doing with it. It's a good feeling. It's hard to explain. but I think it's some kind of combo X-Files meets Warehouse 13 meets Supernatural. That's a guesstimate. Contemporary/urban fantasy is my main genre of writing. I tend to sway towards anything with a supernatural or paranormal flare. I'm interested to see where this rewrite takes me. I also need to work on some other works to send back to an editor interested in my stuff.

How goes the writing front with my writer friends?

I've set quite a few lofty goals for this year. I know I have to be practical and realistic, but if I can finally manage my time, this is doable. I know it is.

Writing

Fanfic - By the end of February, I am going to finish my two WIPs - a h/c with Dean and another wing!fic for my Playing the Angel series. Throughout the year I will post more parts of the series.

Original writing - I hit a slump for a while, but the end of last year started to pick up. I sold two short stories to two different anthologies and my short historical came into print. My main genre is contemporary fantasy/some paranormal, so I am aim to breakthrough in one of those categories with a novella at a major pub. I will also revise my novel and submit to agents.

Health

Weight: I am going to lose 10-15 pounds by the beginning of April
Exercise: I am going to have a decent exercise program going for 3 days a week.
Illness: Getting sick really threw my goals out of whack. I am going to take vitamins each day and eat better to see if that keeps major illness away
Doc Appts: I am going to reschedule all the appointments I had to cancel because I was caring for my dog.


I have some other more personal goals to meet as well, but these are the big ones. I've already decided to double my reading, and that is going well too. Yay!

I've been saying it for a while, but I would love to post more and comment more on my LJ. I think it's time for me to seriously start using filters.

Anyway, that's it. Have a great day :)

I saw the "End of the Year Writing Meme" over on [livejournal.com profile] claudiapriscus's LJ and got excited. I always love doing those. I used to do these all the time when I was a prolific writer and reader, but 2011 was a very very crazy year for me. Did I even write this year?

So I went back to see the handful of fics I might have written in 2011 and was shocked to discover I had written one.

ONE.

Wow. Remember the years I would write an obscene amount? 2011 was pretty busy. In some ways good and in some ways bad.

Overall, 2011 wasn't a good writing year for me. It would be one thing if I didn't have so much fanfic because I was submitting like crazy on the original fiction front, but I haven't really finished anything on that end of the spectrum either.

2012 has to change that.

My goals for 2012 are to stop stalling and send out my original stuff, and to finish my wing!fic series that surely everyone has forgotten.

I also have Dean h/c fic with the alt!Sam from a story of mine, and a very short Bobby fic where he plays daddy to the boys. Then we'll see if I translate any more of my ideas. I really want to focus on finishing that series of mine.

So here's to a more writerly New Year!

P.S: What was the one fic I had written? It was The Red Room, a story where Dean has a relapse of vampirism after Sam got his soul back. Maybe not my best, but it satisified me, and that is all that matters :)

I really need to learn to schedule my time. I have plenty of time during the day being currently jobless yet I don't give much, if any, of that time to myself.

Things I Very Much Want to Do

1. Writing - I used to write so much and now...

I have the next story in my SPN "wing!fic" series that I want to finish and post, but I'm not close to being done yet. I'm also working on some of my own stuff in terms of novellas and those aren't done yet. And then there is my current manuscript and that is not close to being finished either.

I was writing like every day for a while there, and my schedule has been wrecked by other factors. Honestly, I think I just need to sit down and finish something so I can feel like I've accomplished something. Right now, I feel like I'm working hard on various things and not getting anywhere.

I just really miss being prolific in any way...

2. Art - I want to make new icons in the worst way. And banners. And maybe walls. But it's so hard with my stressed out computer here. It crashes easily and can't handle that sort of thing, so I don't usually even bother. But I do miss it. What a great stress reliever that was. Computer work for me!

So yeah. Those are my big wants right now. I have other things I want and need, but that can always be the subject of another post LOL

Freelance?

Anyone know any freelance writing jobs? Like real, legit ones?

I know I've had this conversation before with people and I swear one or two of you gave me awesome excellent advice/suggestions, but my brain is Swiss cheese these days and I have trouble remembering where I put my glasses. I just never know what I could actually write about.

In unrelated news, I guess it's Supernatural against Fringe tonight. That makes me sad. SPN isn't really a headlining show. I don't want it to take a numbers hit. I love my little cult show. I'm not doing that against P.Diddy twitter thing. SPN fans don't need negative press. I'd rather promote in a positive way.

And I still need to find a photo for my book jacket *sigh* That actually makes me physically out there which is a bit scary.

At least I had a writing epiphany last night, and I shall be posting new icons in the future.

All is not lost in the world, at least for me, LOL.

First of all, happy birthday to all my August birthday flisters. I hope you all have had or will have awesome birthdays. Please don't take offense if I don't name you personally. I am not online every day so I feel like a nice big shout out is fairest :)

Onto other stuff...

I have one episode of Farscape left and then the Peacekeeper Wars. You know, I really didn't like this show much in its first season and season 2 was hit or miss for me. By now, though, with the final storyarc, I am really enjoying it. That may be because I am drawn to plots that have a political bent, though. I love politics in fiction. I'm sad it's ending with it having gotten so good. I'll post my thoughts on the episodes soon.

For whatever reason, I am very excited about the new season of Smallville. But where are all you Smallville fans? I have no one to talk Smallville with!

My SG-1 muse has been stirring a bit so I might actually get something written. That would be nice. And I might do some quiet reading. Just pick a couple of fics on my list and start going very slowly. Maybe a little meta if the mood strikes. But I'm in quiet fandom mode and I'm not feeling overly participatory right now. It's nice. It's like leisurely fandom. I just don't have the energy to be 100% right now.

I'm probably going to give SPN a try come the fall. I loved Season 1 and I was hit and miss with Season 2. The casting spoilers don't bug me and I'm taking a wait and see attitude. But I think SPN is going to be one of my casual viewing shows.

I've been thinking a lot on my original novel and that is actually where my energies are focused right now (aside from the RL crap). I've made some breakthroughs, but I'm still having inadequacy issues. Got to fix that.

I haven't been on LJ since I think Sunday and no way can I keep up with my flist. If something important has happened, please tell! I just needed a break for a few days. RL is sucking bad right now and instead of venting here, I just needed to be away. Things are still bad so I might be a bit sporadic. Just an FYI.

Carry on :)
