Emptiness?

Equilibrium is finished and now I'm at a loss. I've had this story in my head for the last 10 months, like a safety blanket or something. It was always there, I always felt like "I should be writing it" when I wasn't. I felt so guilty for those 4 months when I was writing other things, like I was cheating. But now it's over. It's a good feeling but strangely bittersweet. I'm damn proud of it and all the work I put in (though it still needs so much more). If I get it edited to my liking, I might even send it to my mom. God, that would be the most... I think I would cry if she said it was bad.

It's bedtime.

Done?

I think so!  Just a hair shy of 3,000 words.  I need to proof read it tomorrow since I can't even type properly right now, I'm sure some sentences don't make any sense.  And I think the ending sucks so I might rewrite it tomorrow.  Will post it before work, I hope!

Some little shit gave me his cold.  I'm getting drippy and my throat is hurting and I've got the AC on 27 and I'm wearing fleece and my hanten and I'm still chilly.  :<

2,273 and it's turning into a fucking shojo manga and I love it.  Now that I think of it, the whole thing is fucking shojo but I don't even care.  It's what I would want to read.  This latest chapter is especially a huge sap fest.  I wrote a shitton every spare moment I had today at work. :D  I might get it out soon~  I could say I'm nearly done this one?  Maybe.  It's going to do need a good beta since I changed a whole bunch of stuff and I tend to miss things in rewrites and my eys don't catch them.  Any volunteers?  I also have to write up a little glossary and explanation so people get how fucking symbolic this all is.  I really want to finish it by tonight!  Good thing nothing is on TV. 

I need to do the dishes and make my yakisoba and then I can write more.

Chapter Ten posted @ 19:20:00  There were four comments before I installed the counter around 8 or 9.  As of right now:
  • 99 page loads
  • 88 unique visitors (whatever that actually means)
  • 5 returning visitors
  • 12 comments (excluding my own)
It's not a perfect tally since some of those page views are my own but there is definitely a tip in the balance.  But then, on the other hand, it makes me happy to know that it's been read (or at least visited) so many times. :)  I guess?  It's a good thing in any case. 

Joined [livejournal.com profile] utaoni today for Utaoni updates but I have a feeling I'm going to leave it quite soon, since it's probably going to be the same shit as in about three other communities on my list.  I felt like a bit of a douche for x-posting my fic... I should stop posting in and leave  [livejournal.com profile] arashirabu but it does have the larger readership.  It doesn't have anything decent that isn't already posted to [livejournal.com profile] kotobayori and if it's any good, someone else will tell me about it, I'm sure.  Hardly anything is flocked in the comm, so I can always check back when I'm bored.

Should text Leigh and make a plan for today.

I napped for two hours semi-unintentially before UtaOni.  I'm going to enjoy this show.  I understand about 75% of the dialogue but it's not crazy technical medical/lawyer lingo and they don't talk a mile a minute either.  And the theme song fits the drama for once.  It's totally not Satoshi-like as far as solos go but he's not "Ohno Satoshi" singing it so I guess it doesn't matter.  So much for wanting to translate his mail since I've seen at least 2 other people do it.  It was strange that I was the only (I think?) who did his Maou mail.  I am scared to think of my flist tomorrow; it's going to be like UtaOni shat all over the internet.  Well, I guess it's fair since we haven't heard much from it in terms of promotions before now.

There's a show on TV about being a train driver on the Joban line on the special service train. O_o  Random.  LOL  It's strange to hear them talking about Kashiwa on TV.  Oh it was just that one part. 

Anyway.  I'm going to enjoy this show.  And I've caught a couple other dramas that I am going to enjoy watching.  I just really hope that they will be subbed!  But they've got some hot ikemen in them so I'm sure they will.

Posted Chapter Ten. :)  And embedded a counter in the page because I'm curious.  I wonder what kind of results I'm going to get.  Anyway.  It's done and I can concentrate on my kanji study for the next two weeks. 

I'm meeting Leigh tomorrow for lunch/coffee.  She picked up me up some more Oil of Olay at the base in Aomori.  I got her some omiyage from Hiroshima too.  I wonder if I'll be able to get to sleep again easily.

I suddenly want to write Will Smith and KAT-TUN fic.  It really struck me how expressive Will is.  He (probably) figures they don't speak English--hence the translator--except for Jin.  I don't know if that was the reason or if he's like that normally but he talks with his hands and gestures to emphasize his meaning.  It was really good.  It makes me want to rent Hancock even though I heard it was crap.  I always enjoy Will Smith movies.

Except that it kind of feels like Thursday to me. 

I finished writing Chapter 10 last night.  Even though I want to post it now and come home to a flood of lovemail, I'm waiting for [livejournal.com profile] shourai to give it a once over for me.  I edited again this morning and fixed a couple things but I would like some feedback on the mood before I post it.  I really wanted to get it done because I'm getting stoked to write this again (yay!) and I need to buckle down and study my brains out for my kanji test that's in 2 weeks.  I didn't want to leave it that long.  2,500 words is a healthy sized chapter, don't you think?  I wonder if I'll reach the 5,000 word mark again in this fic... possibily next chapter, but maybe not.  I wonder if I'm not describing enough in order to get to the action quicker.  I don' t know.  At this point, I want to finish it.  Then I can go back and edit and tweak things and repost it again better than it was.  That's the plan anyway. 

Elementary school today.  Yay.  Grade 6 and grade 3 and we're just doing review.  I need to photocopy worksheets first thing and I've learned that printing in colour and then photocopying doesn't really work.  Best to print in black and white.  And then English club today.  I kind of really don't like these days.  I don't get to go home as early as usual.  And today sucks especially because while I usually have 5th period free (to rest haha), today I don't.  And I'm tired again today.  I slept through my snooze again... it's a good thing I set my alarm an hour earlier than I need to be up.  Otherwise it would be very, very bad.

Is finally done.  GUH.  That only took me... a month to get out.  Took me about two weeks to actually write.  Shit.  And because it merits big fonts:

5,174 words.

I really can't wait to see all the hearts and keymashing comments I'm going to get for this chapter.  I'm killing myself as I write it.  I wanted to finish last night but I spent 2 hours fucking around on YouTube watching m-flo videos instead and hoped that staring at the screen would make something happen. 

4,237 words and still not at the sexy times yet.  Shit.

I still have 2 episodes of Maou to catch up on but I will finish this first.  I watched Code Blue and goddamn Yamapi why are you so stoic?  I think I need to get into watching News variety shows to see a more stupid and goofy side of him.  It makes my heart break.  Well done on the waterworks last week, but I didn't quite believe it... not as much as Ryou and her bawling.  That lady's got it.

MORE WRITING.  [profile] everystarrfall are you ready?  I want this shit back ASAP when I send it to you!

Amazingly I haven't posted in ... 3 days?  I think that's a record.  XD  Might have something to do with the fact that I've been writing my face off all weekend and Chapter Three is posted.  Phew~  4,403 words of glory.  I'm still waiting for the landslide of comments... I haven't made my fandom fame yet.  It occured to me the other day... I can't publish this if I want to.  (After I change the names and fix stuff that come out in the end, etc etc.)  I don't want to end up like Cassandra Claire.  I actually remember that happening too in the HP fandom.  Wow... It's kind of amazing how these internet events infiltrate RL and we remember them years down the road... That burst my little bubble but oh well. 

Work was a fucking bust yesterday and will be today too.  They cancelled all my classes cuz they are just handing back midterms.  I had the 2nd year elective class yesterday and I'll teach Araragi today but otherwise I will be sitting at my desk.  Kaneko-sensei gave me some marking to do at least.  It's a nice day so maybe I'll go outside and read some of my book.  I'm over halfway done, I just have to 我慢 and get 'er done. 

So, like everyone else, I have been obsessed with this video:

It's just so cracky and wonderful.  And it's the Step and Go costumes!  Even the fucking cape makes an appearance. :3  I actually like the song... It reminds me of high school when Chris and I would drive around listening to techno (aka "Gino Beats") and hanging out at Tim Horton's.  That was the highlight of our existences.  And then having to be home by 10 because Christina had a curfew.  I actually had a dream the other night which is only a hazy memory now... I think Arashi might have made an appearance.  But in any case we were in some rural place, maybe in Japan but it might have been China, and there was a Timmies being constructed!  I don't remember anything else, but I do remember feeling supremely pissed off that where I lived didn't have a Tim's.  : /  [/random]

It's so wonderfully viral I tried making some icons but... mmm they are just cropped out of screencaps.  So they probably look like shit.  I want crisp images but when you sharpen the colours go wonky so I didn't.  I can't decide which I want to use and all my icons now have a PURPOSE for once.  I can't get rid of any of them!  I might have to shell out and buy more...

 

Alright, fingers crossed that the server is fixed at work and I can get on my email before 3rd period.  It would also be nice of LJ and MSN weren't blocked anymore but I won't be greedy.

I am not doing myself any favours by comparing my word count to this.  It is amazing.  I can only hope for half the response when I post my fic.  I just broke 2000 words.  I get antsy and just want to finish but I can't rush.  If I want this to be some really good shit, I can't rush.  I have to take my time and edit, edit, edit.  I need to do Claire Wright proud.  Spanks to [profile] tohshimari for giving me some comments so far.  I hope I will have this first chapter done by tonight!  There's nothing on TV, no shows to watch (although I do have the latest AnS but it can wait), nothing urgent.  I don't even have dishes waiting to be done. 

In addition to pimping Right Back to You, I should also pimp Immortal Arashi.  To be honest, I really was hestitant to start reading it.  The writing isn't great, but she actually has a style that is easy to read (and easy to ignore/forgive any errors).  It might not be to everyone's taste, it's quite out there.  It seems a bit like LoTR mashed together with Buffy sprinkled with JE.  But who knows, that could be a great mix? 

I am so full from sushi and yakitori.  I hit the grocery store after returning videos and couldn't be bothered cooking so I stormed the pre-made food section.  I am going to make curry sometime this week because those potatoes are starting to spud like crazy.  They look a little extra-terrestrial, actually.

I have a plan and I'm almost ready to start writing.  :O 

Am I really going to do this? 

I don't have a title yet...  That will come to me later, I suppose.

I need to a bit more research but I'm almost ready. 

Now, here comes the scary part: writing the first page.

EDIT:  Fuck, I feel like I'm back in school again.  I've been reading Wikipedia articles for an hour and a half, and have nearly 4 pages of notes.  BUT that will make for some wickedly awesome (and accurate!) writing.
