30 Days of Me: Day 08

“Short term goals for this month and why”

Considering there’s only one day left of July, they’d have to be very short term goals indeed!
However I’ve got a few things already lined up for August, so let’s go with those.

One of the biggest is that I need to do more writing. A blog post a day is a good start, that’s true, but I haven’t written a piece of prose outside of my blogs since NaNoWriMo. I’m considering WeSeWriMo, which takes place over August, with the goal of writing 2 podcasts a week and getting at least 4 recorded by the end of the month. I also need to start mulling over my framework for NaNoWriMo this year, although I’m not sure if I’m going to enter yet due to November being our major assessment month and all.

So many shinies, so many flawed points

-Not my picture- For those of you who aren't familiar with Steampunk. Go google it. Do it now and squee.

On the other hand, I’ve thought of a dozen new ways to kill zombies and several new characters. So we’ll see.

Next on the list is finishing my update of Kult, gathering the other 2 players we need, and getting a new RP group together. I haven’t done much gaming at all over the last year or so, so it’s going to be interesting being the GM. Fortunately by the time I’ve finished the re-write, I’m going to know it inside out! And I’ll have a handy, dandy cheat sheet! HUHZAH!

The why for both these goals is simple: it keeps my brain fed. Continue reading

Script Frenzy: T Minus 1 Week.

There’s nothing quite like a friend saying “I’m thinking about doing blahblah but I don’t have anyone to do it with” to make one consider all sorts of insanity.

Things like singing in front of 300 odd people, trialling for sports teams that I don’t expect to get into, writing a novella in 30 days or cranking out some 100 pages of a script in the same amount of time.

That’s right, I’m doing Script Frenzy.
You can throw things at me later, for now I have plotting and all sorts to do before it kicks off on Friday coming! OHNOES!
I’m leaning towards plotting a webcomic based on the mayhem that is being a theatre tech. I’ve been saying I’m going to write it for a few years now, so this might be the kick that it needs.

Would people even read a webcomic about that sort of stuff?
I know that Backstage Badger is starting to go viral and, according to a poll she did, most of the readers are Stage Managers. So I think there’s a place for it, I’ve just got to write it well. And maybe get the drawing thing down pat… but minor details, right?

I’ll post random updates on here about it, so don’t feel like you’re going to miss out on me completely during April.
I’m also running an IRC channel called #NaNoFrenzy on mibbit(dot)com, aimed at the NaNoWriMo kids who are insane enough to try this one out too but anyone is welcome to join. Unless you’re coming to grief, than I’ll stab you with my titanium spork.

And with that I’m off to bake a pretty cake with Rarakie.
Have a great day y’all!!

Three days to doom us all

Now don’t get me wrong, I’m loving writing again.

I adore the writing group that I’ve fallen in with, it’s more enjoyable when you’re writing with people instead of for people.
The Querkites, as the members have been dubbed, are terribly interesting bunch. They provide timely prods, inspiration and respite. And have been, frankly, the highlight of NaNoWriMo 2010.

NaNoWriMo, for the uninitiated (sane?) ones amongst us, is National Novel Writing Month.
Fifty thousand words in thirty days, making an average of one thousand six-hundred and sixty-seven words per day. Assuming you write every single day that is.
