nonesane: (How Jeeves _really_ manipulates Bertie.)
...yaaaay, lists. No seriously, lists help me not panic about All The Stuff I Want To Do. I know I won't get all of this done, but getting it all written down in an overview like this helps :)

Also, I've promised myself only to have two writing projects on at the same time, to prevent me from dilly-dallying and only writing two orders on each of my gazillion WIPs.

This is very last minute, so I'll make sure to update this to be an actual "what I like about Books of the Raksura" post a-sap. Until then you can check out my old what-I-like post from Yuletide where I have some info (though not the exact same characters).

Since I've already talked about Jade, Stone, Moon and Chime in my old letter linked above, I thought I'd just briefly summarize why I like the other two characters I've requested.

- Ember. I think he's a great addition to the cast, as a contrast to Moon. I don't think Moon should or needs to change his ways to be a "better Raksura" or anything like that, but I adore that we get to see a consort who's comfortable in his assigned role. Not only do I think Ember's ease as a consort underlines that all consorts are individuals, but it also underlines the fact that you don't have to be a Big, Tough, Strong Hunter or magician or what have you to be a good person. I wish Stone would show him a little more respect (that said, I think there are a lot of Raksura Stone should stop treating like annoying furniture...)

- Shade. His lot in life isn't an easy one, but it's so great that he has such a loving family to back him up. I'd love to see him interact more with strangers though - with or without the help of his family. I love that he's sweet without being a pushover (at least from what I remember - I really need to reread the books) and that he's loyal to his people.

So many fun fandoms nominated this year! And all 3 of my fandom nominations got accepted, yes~!

I may be a little sleep-deprived, but I'll do my best to make myself a helpful list of all the fandoms I'd like to get involved with.

Here there be fandoms! )

Next I'll have to dig through the things I didn't recognize in the tag set, to see what new lovely fandoms I can sniff out <3 Always open to recs!

Did a post like this almost two years ago...and most of my projects have remained at a stand-still due to work, health and a million other things *sigh*

It's list time again! (Whenever is it not list-time with me...). These are not all my writing projects, just the ones I'm prioritizing right now.

If anyone's curious about my writing projects (original and fanfiction), I have a tumblr for my writing and a tag on my ordinary tumblr for all posts about said writing stuff.

Projects are not in alphabetical order this time around, but instead in "how complete is this"-order, with closest-to-being-finished at the top of the list.

Here there is a list )

List of fanfiction WIPs is coming up soon. Because lists.

Okay, time to get this vaction show on the road! I'm splitting summer into "two parts" seeing as I'll be traveling for a bit in the middle and thus won't be getting much stuff done then other than, well, traveling.

List, list, such a list! )

Time to bring out the big guns! i.e. I really like making lists and checking off things on them ;)

Things I should be getting done in 2016, organized in whatever way I could think of at the moment... More things are likely to get added to this list. This is just what I could remember off the top of my head.

Woah, am I tired. Oh, and the Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell BBC mini-series sucked me right back into that fandom! With a renewed love for John Childermass, Stephen Black and Emma Pole, I feel an urgent need to write fanfiction. If I only could remember how I used to chat up beta readers back in the day when I wrote a lot of fic...oh misspent youth, why didn't I take notes during you?

That newfound love aside, I feel a great need to make a plan for this year. Since I started working full time I've ended up neglecting a lot of things I've meant to do, simply because I fail to remember doing them. Thus, I'll try to remind myself of things I should be doing by writing lists here everyone 1-2 weeks.

We'll see how long that lasts ;)

Goals until Sunday the 31th of January
[ ] Finish reading "The Dyslexia Debate" for work (1-2 chapters/day).
[ ] Get to at least chapter 21 in "The Fires of Heaven" by Robert Jordan (2-3 chapters/day).
[ ] Get to at least chapter 12 in re-read of "Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell" by Susanna Clarke (3-4 chapters/day).
[ ] Post at least two fics/drabbles in the Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell kinkmeme.
[ ] Find at least 7 stories and 15 artworks in RTH to comment on.
[ ] Sniff out that EQ artwork I want my sister to see.
[ ] Post in all RPGs I'm in.
[ ] Start archiving Lost Holt's latest phase in the RPG.
[ ] Sort through at least 2 folders in my e-mail (oh gods, it's such a mess)
[ ] Make a list of "Things to complete/do in 2016".
[ ] Clean up old notebook with previous years' goals.
[ ] Go for a run at least twice.
[ ] Get all the files on my cellphone in order.
[ ] Take out the recycling because this is getting ridiculous.
[ ] Figure out what I should/have promised to be writing...especially RTH collabs!
nonesane: (Sadly this is true for me.)
I have so many things I should be writing and want to be writing!

Will save this here to hopefully add a list of deadlines for myself later on tonight...

Okay, here goes! I've looked through the WIPs I marked as "priorities" way back when (for original stories here & for fanfiction here, though I've come up with yet more stories since then, ack!) and picked three of of each to focus on so I actually might get something done this summer. The others will be written too, just...later.

Original stories

1) Of Elves and Dwarrows Part 1: Soul-Stealing Elves
I've finished the first draft of 16 of 21 chapters! I really should get this done this summer.
I'll encourage myself by link all the beautiful art I've commissioned of my characters, here:
Headshots of Jale, Warsa, Kaaz, Prince Onren, Fanwa, Beswa, Zurkea and Gelame.
Headshots of Guthra, Queen Luheka, Vergar, Droh, Tura, Bjana, Hreka and Marwa.
Raserath saving her brother Narathriel from falling.
Narathriel and Warsa talking, near the end of the book.
Prince Onren and Jale dancing.

2) Rumskompisar och Annat Oknytt
My short story collection all in Swedish that has gone forward ever so slowly. But I need to finish it. Like, yesterday. Because my uncle isn't feeling too well and he really wanted to read something I've written...and now I've made myself sad, dammit.
Oh well, I've finished the first draft of 1 of 10 stories. Better get working on the rest!

3) Secrets in Ice
Only done with the first draft of chapter 1 of 16, but it is something. Co-creating this with my sister (her tumblr and her dA) which has both sped up and slowed down the process of writing/world-building.


1) Witch Hunt
A Star Trek:DS9 AU-fic focused on Julian Bashir and Elim Garak. Only done with the first draft of chapter 1 of 20, but I've apparently written at least 200 words on each chapter. Weird,

2) Dynamics
Mass Effect fic. Because this silly Shepard/Thane smut has been sitting unfinished on my computer for way, waaaay too long!

3) Punishment
This prompt is so old and unfilled I am ashamed. Especially as it has 2k of it already written! The Hobbit fandom needs more dworin smut. yeah. Let's see if I can get all this done before work starts up again in August. Better not hold my breath.

Making a little list for myself, as a reminder. Will try to add trigger warnings later on, should anyone ask for them (they're horror stories after all, so if I should list all possible triggers in them I'd be here all week...)

Now with short summaries!

Links down here )
nonesane: (Bloody long book)
I got some free time due to forgetting work at work (so to speak). Thus, for no real reason, I thought I'd try give myself a grasp of what it is a do with all my time. Because I think it's tricky to get an idea of where all the time disappears to. Here's my attempt at untangling that question.

Where my time goes )
