Today's writing is a bit of a piece that [livejournal.com profile] havenward and I started writing together after Con-Con. Not sure that it will make sense out of the context of the story, but it was basically inspired by a story Christian told at the gig at Dante's to end the convention that struck both of our muses. Hopefully someday we will actually manage to finish and post it. *crossing everything*

Ok, stole this and am going to see if I can get my muses talking again. The challenge is: using the prompts below, write a drabble (or whatever) a day for the next 30 days. Find someone willing to hit you if you miss a day.

Prompts:
beginning. accusation. restless. snowflake. haze. flame. formal. companion. move. silver. prepared. knowledge. denial. wind. order. thanks. look. summer. transformation. tremble. sunset. mad. thousand. outside. winter. diamond. letters. promise. simple. future.

I started, appropriately enough with Beginning - MCR, approx 200 words )

No idea if I'll keep posting them here or what, but I'm counting on to smack me if I miss a day. So yeah... here goes nothing :)

7:30p Sunday night and what have I done all weekend? Sleep. *sigh*

I was feeling a bit run down all last week and around Wed. or Thurs. I started thinking I had caught a cold. Come Friday and I was positive. Nothing horrible, just a low level fever of around 100 to 101 at its highest, some sneezing and stuffy headed-ness and an overall feeling of blah... but on top of a 52 hour work week, it was draining my energy every second I was awake. I had to teach a class for 8 hours on Friday and by the end of it, I was sooooooooo ready to come home and crawl into bed. Which is basically what I did.

I didn't end up leaving said bed for any time longer than it took to go to the bathrooom or get a cup of water from the kitchen all weekend long. I literally spent the weekend in bed. Most of it sleeping, the 3 hours I've been awake this afternoon/evening is the longest block of consciousness I've managed since Friday night. I also managed to miss most meals and consequently feel as weak as a newborn colt, but I've got some homemade chicken noodle soup warming up now and once I eat that I think I'll have a shower and then go right back to bed.

In the meantime, I am enjoying the Supervisory gig so far. Of course most of my team is in training right now, so I reserve the right to change my mind once they hit the floor.

Still no plane tickets to ConCon, but hoping to rectify that with my first paycheck in Feb. Also starting to get way excited as I bought my ticket for the Kane concert this past friday and its slowly becoming more real. Little over 45 days or so I think and I SO can't wait!

Have gotten no writing done this weekend, which is a bit nerve-wracking as I have my p2w story due soonish as well as my 2 [livejournal.com profile] help_haiti fics due as well. I'm not as worried about my AU Big Bang as I have a bit longer to go before that one is due, but the 3 above are all due in about 2 weeks. But I also have a needy dark fic POV that is whispering in the back of my head almost constantly as well as a Hades JDM that is all kinds of cranky with me right now.

Tv has been awesomesauce lately and I am so head over heels for White Collar it's not even funny. It ranks just below Leverage in my tv love. (Sorry Burn Notice, I still love you too... but you moved one spot down the ladder.) I am enjoying Caprica so far, and the new season of RuPaul's Drag Race starts tomorrow and that has me all kinds of gleeful even if I don't have anyone to squee over it with. I was not overly impressed with the last episode of Supernatural, but I have hopes that this week's will make up for it. And really the "Pudding!" adorableness is still going, so boys have a buy for a week.

And really, I'm just wittering over nothing now so I should wrap this up. Here's to hoping that this week is better (altho at this point I'm prolly looking at 56 hours at work since I have to work next weekend...)

Goal: 200 words/day
Word count this week: 1582
Total word count so far: 9248

Not my most prolific week, and there was one day that I didn't write at all due to a nasty migraine. And several of those days I had to push to make myself write at all, but in spite of all that, I am still happy with what I have managed to achieve thus far.
darling_lisa: (MiniNaNo)
Goal: 200 words/day
Word count this week: 4568
Total word count so far: 7666

Managing to continue the trend of making my word count for the most part (had another day where I so didn't even come close) and I have written every single day. Finished up a fic that has been on my hard drive for about a month, and started a new verse. Overall pretty happy with the way things have turned out.
darling_lisa: (MiniNaNo)
Goal: 200 words a day
Total word count so far: 3098

So overall I've managed to hit almost double my aimed for word count. Most days I've hit somewhere between 200 and 400 words, with a lucky day thrown in where I made over a thousand. And then there was today with a whopping 52.

Frustrated with myself for not being able to commit to one story, or even consistently write one 'verse, but at this point I'm just reminding myself that writing is what is important. But with that being said, I really want to focus this week on finishing some stories that have been sitting around because it drives me a little batty to know that they are undone.

Gonna try not to beat myself up over not making my word count today and see if I can make it up tomorrow.
