Almost at the halfway point … ended up in a fairly heavy discussion with one of my sisters earlier resulting in much thought, so I didn’t quite get as much done as I would’ve liked.

That said … I’m feeling very good about it all. I’ve been making progress, which is more than I can say for the past several months. I’ve been feeling better physically, as well, which I am very glad for. So … hopefully it’ll stay this way. Because I’m sick of feeling like shit. 😛

Got words

Taking a break to eat at the moment. Being hypoglycemic sucks.


I finished the character bio!!! Wheee!!!

I’m really rather pleased with how it came out. I learned a lot about the MC and her past, along with some worldbuilding information … now I need to do the hero’s, but I may let that one wait until tomorrow.


This would be more than I’ve written in … well … since I moved here, actually. And I managed to do this with a migraine, which makes me especially happy, because … well, it’s been a very long time since I’d actually done so. (I used to all the time, because there was a time period of about three or four months two years back where I would get a migraine almost every other day. Granted, I didn’t know they were migraines then, because I don’t get the visual disturbances–I get just about everything else, though … nausea, light and sound sensitivity, general physical and emotional oversensitivity …)

And I love my wonderful male. He brainstormed with me prior to working on the bio … it’s been a very, very long time since I had anyone I could brainstorm with on a regular basis. (Ex-fiance, before we got together IRL, actually … after I moved in with him, brainstorming turned into something that he could use against me … “I spent three hours discussing your WIP and now I’m emotionally exhausted and you don’t care about me or my WIP at all”–that sort of thing after I’d spent quite literally days discussing his with him. *rolls eyes*)

I really did miss it. And … *sigh* I’ve honestly always had trouble writing when I didn’t have someone for a “writing buddy.” I’ve had the same trouble the past couple years that I had before I joined a writer’s group in the first place. Meh. Sucks. But oh well. Have male now. Have very willing male. Er, that sounds wrong. Gah. Male willing to writhe with me–write, for fuck’s sake. Mreh.

Whee. Have I mentioned I have a tendency to babble when I’m up too long? Well, if you didn’t know before, you do now. 😉

And I’m going to shit up now before I typo anything else.

Um. Right. See what I mean?


Okay, got the post for the Sex & Sexuality thread done. That was … difficult.

And I’m staying up. So, hopefully, writing will happen tonight.

No, make that, writing will happen tonight. Dammit.

Oh! And see the nifty progress meter my male wrote!

He’s still working on it–this’s beta version–but still … *purrrrrrrrrrrrrrs*

There are serious advantages to having a geek male. 😉

Mreh …

Okay. Dammit. I need to write. I have two plotbunnies–two!!!–and a book to rewrite, on top of that. So, I need to do some prewriting on one of the bunnies … probably I’ll work on the cat-people one, as that’s calling me atm.

Romance between a felinoid warlord and a human tracker/ranger with both their peoples on the brink of war. Will be much fun. The idea actually came from a dream, which I typed up …

In the dream, I was a human female in a Tudor-style village. My uncle, one of the Queen’s lieutenants, came to me one day, and explained that the threat of the cat-people was increasing. They were raiding the villages, and they needed my help to scout out their locations.

I agreed, and went, in the middle of winter, over much snow. It was a very far ways from the village to the cat-people’s land … they lived by the ocean. I ended up on the beach; hundreds of the cat-people were gathered on the shore, and a tidal wave was coming in. I didn’t know how to swim; it was forbidden to my people, the in-landers, because it was something the cat-people did. I figured best to take my chances with the cat-people and ran for them. I ended up with a mother and her cubs, and noticed that the ears were almost human … hybrid.

The water came in, towards us, and the cat-people didn’t move back … it was coming up over the shore, and I thought that we were all going to drown. Then the cat-people combined magic; the water flowed over us like there was a shield protecting us.

When it passed, I tried to escape. I heard footsteps behind me, and I ran. The Warlord of the cat-people caught up with me and demanded to know why I was there. I explained … and realised that having been there, I didn’t want them dead like I had before. And, well, extreme lustage for the Warlord. He took me aside and told me that he did not have as much power as he wished, and that what I had heard was true; the cat-people had broken into dissent, with those that wished to live peacefully with the humans and others that wanted them dead. His son and the shaman were a member of the latter party.

We ended up having sex, and then heard the shaman and son coming up for us … so we fled. He knew that they would smell my scent on him, so came with me; we ran into my uncle along the way, who captured him and took him back to the Queen. She wanted to kill him, but decided to let him return in a gesture of good will… in hopes of attaining peace.

It will most certainly change as I prewrite, but that’s what I’m working with right now. 🙂

All righty … off to take bath, then try and get some work done.

The beginning …

I hate writing opening posts. I bloody hate it. Then again, I don’t think anyone particularly likes doing it.

Anyway … most of y’all know me; if not, you should be able to figure it out fairly quickly by looking at my profile. 😉

So, I’ve been on LiveJournal for about two years after getting fed up with the way Google’d handled Blogger changes; why the hell did I decide to come back? It’s not that I’m disappointed with LJ at all; I’m certainly keeping my account there. The one big problem I have with LJ is that it’s a royal pain in the ass to customise your account at all. I can’t figure out S2, nor can any of the programmers I know. That said, the ability to friends-lock and filter entries is certainly worth it.

Anyway, the main reason I created the account is that the majority of the chicks over at Romance Divas use Blogger, so I figured I’d come back and see if it’d gotten any better … and I’m rather impressed, to be honest. Friends list capability would be nice, but since I use SharpReader, a feed aggregator, it’s really not that big a deal.

So, pretty much, I’m probably going to use this blog for tracking writing progress and general thoughts on writing. Personal entries will be over at LiveJournal … as will any long-term posting of WIPs, for reasons of publication rights. 🙂

See y’all around!
