Writing a book is a horrible, exhausting struggle, like a long bout of some painful illness.
One would never undertake such a thing if one were not driven on by some demon
whom one can neither resist nor understand.

You won't find a lot of stuff under a "friends-only lock" because I really don't have that many personal things to say. That doesn't mean there aren't friends-only things, but they're somewhat rare. I update friends with how my writing is coming along, future writing I plan to do, rants about my family, etc. If you're interested in that, feel free to add me as a friend and I'll add you back. :)

I love new friends, so don't be shy: add me!

Just a heads-up to those that might have been wondering where I was/what I've been doing.

Not feeling up to writing it all out in longs paragraphs, so I'm going to make a short list.

The list. ~Collapse )

That's about it! I'm alive and well. Hope you're all alive and well as well.

This is a continuation to the meme that took place here.

After I finished the commentary toward the five words given to me by somniumweb, quorothorn provided me with five more. The new words are: Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy, Maiko [alternatively WARINESS], hivemind effects, adorable Pokemon [Mew, Pikachu], and enthusiastic userpics.

My commentary.Collapse )

For my fellows from chat:

Just for you!Collapse )

For everyone and anyone:

Updates under the fake-cut!Collapse )

First of all, I'm going to complete this little meme that Som introduced me to. It's similar to something I did with yukinoomoni< a while back.

Click here for the meme.Collapse )

In other news, my mom spilled the beans a week ago on what she and my dad are going to do for me for when I graduate with my Bachelor's in a year and half to two years. They're going to get me a bird! YAAAAY. I want to graduate right now. 'Course, it all depends on where I am at that time. If I'm not in an ideal situation to get a bird, they'll be getting me a pug puppy. ASDFHGHDHDHD.

My grammar class is going well. I enjoy going to my professor's office with several of my grammar buddies to diagram sentences. It's like an unofficial club of AWESOME. Diagramming is so much fun! (It doesn't hurt that it helps us for upcoming tests, either. :P)

Life if great. My roommate is awesome. We've had no quarrels with each other, no gripes or small pet peeves, nothing. It's like we were meant for each other. It's great. <3

Hope you're all doing well, too!

Peace out.

I have a short attention span, and knowing that, you know why I had to change my profile layout. In case you don't understand, it's because my old one no longer made my eyes happy. It has also made me sick of the color pink for the time being.

I chose something simple and then added my own little flair to it. That flair was... PIKACHU! <3 He's one of the most adorable Pokemon ever as I'm sure you will agree.

On another note, only one of you posted a prompt for me in my last entry, so I implore you to go here and post one. For my sake!

Heck, don't people normally line up for free ficcage of something or some pairing they enjoy? :P

Hope you're all having a swell time!

P.S. I'd like to give a big howdy-do to my newest LJ buddies. :)

Hey, guys!

So my personal writing hasn't gotten me anywhere. I've been so busy with homework and life. My globs, my Grammar class is tons of fun--diagramming sentences, woo!--but it's also a crazy amount of work. It takes up all of my time, even the time needed for my other classes--which don't require that much work, just a lot of reading. Thank goodness.

That's why I'm coming to you! Give me some prompts for Avatar mini-fics, fluff, etc. It could be a word, several words, an idea, an opening line, an ending line, you name it and I'll give it a try!

Don't expect amazing magical things. I still haven't quite got out of my crappy-writing slump, but I'm hoping this extra boost will push me in the right direction. At least I'm to the point where I'm not afraid to show my work to the public. ROUGH TIMES, MAN. ROUGH TIMES.

Lay 'em on me!
