Nevermind the story lab! I may indeed be crazy, but part one was planned to the max, I'm gonna see if I can wing the second half.

It's looking very much like there's going to be an Ouroboros: Part II -- in other words, season five. It was just sort of a fancy at first, but now there's enough stuff I want to do that can't be covered in the current storyarc and, well, why the hell not? Life doesn't need to stop after Megabyte.

Hell, it's even possible I could have an outline ready by June. I hammered out the first version of the last one in three weeks, after all, and I'm kind of on a roll here.

To the story lab!

Finally finished the stupid chapter that pretty much cost me my NaNo victory. Have at thee, rough draft! I'll conquer you yet!

I've been watching too much Johnny Test, and it's starting to blur into other cartoon realities. For example:
     - Mom and Dad are the domestic Elaine and Guybrush Threepwood.
     - Storm Hawks is a parallel universe where Johnny grew up to be Finn. Seriously, they're EXACTLY ALIKE.
     - there's some kind of relation to the Fry/Farnsworth family, what with all the flaming red hair, inventormania, and moving science forward via heaps of monkeys, and Zapp Brannigan is descended from Mr. Black AND Mr. White--the twins do freaky genetic experiments all the time, so pretty much anything is possible.

On a huge vidding streak, apparently. I guess I'm making up for last year, when I finished seven vids, and three of those were in November. So far this year I've made eight. Seven of those were in the last two weeks. At least I'm being artistically productive?

Basically, I've been swept off my feet by Supernatural. The last time a show knocked me for a loop this hard, it was Doctor freakin' Who. I didn't even really expect to like it, though with how much I love ghost stories, badass angels, well-written story arcs, and brotherly bromance, I'm not sure why I thought that at all. Go Team Winchester!

Holy shit, it's been three weeks and what do I have to show for it? Not a hell of a lot, that's what. I put together a 20-PAGE OUTLINE in three weeks last October. Maybe January's just not when I should be writing? Should I go knit something until the flowers come up and I can't see the lichen anymore?

Flowers, that's what I need. Get a move on, daffodils!

Once more unto the breach!

Dean Venture is destined for evil, isn't he?

Okay, so I failed NaNo again. Who cares? I wrote seventy pages! Even when I was writing all the time, I don't think I ever wrote that much in two and a half weeks. But my brain conked out and demanded "Do something else!" so I made three music videos in a week while barely sleeping. YEAH, THAT HELPED A BUNCH.

All in all, a productive month, even plagued as it was by a horrid cold and bouts of insomnia. The farthest I'd ever gotten on this story before was about half a page, so I consider it a personal victory. It's not finished yet, but it will be, dammit!
st_jane_ambulance: (four)
It's only halfway through November and I am JONESING to go back and rewrite this thing already. Or to write something else. Or to DO something else. I've got a line of music videos begging to be made, Father Ted is shiny and new to Netflix instant, and I've still got a scarf from last winter that needs finishing, not to mention Christmas presents to knit. I've finished most of the easy parts and the rest is probably going to be a bit slower-going.

But... 30,000 words! 30,000! In two freaking weeks! Another 8k, and this will be the most wordy thing I have ever worked on, finished or not. When the going gets tough, do the tough get out of the kitchen? I don't THINK so!

It's occurred to me that with all the cold medicine and poor sleep I've had while writing this, editing it is going to be a bitch and a half. Especially seeing as I've currently skipped most of chapter four, in which a lot of very important shit happens. Hey, the rules don't say all the scenes have to be there. I'll write it later when I'm not panicking about how the fuck it's supposed to go. I suppose I shouldn't have ordered that deus ex machina from IKEA.

10,000 words! One-fifth down! And not quite one-sixth of the story. This is for sure going to be the longest thing I've ever written.

Made today's word quota last night while also breaking my previous NaNo word record. And now I've got a cold. Yes, I'm writing a story about fighting evil cartoon computer viruses WHILE I HAVE A VIRUS. Although I'm glad it's not a computer one, because that would be fucking ironic. Nice one, universe. But I will not be defeated!

Also, it's just now occurring to me that it might have been fun to treat Daemon's infection kind of like an STD. I'll try to hang on to that one for the rewrite. :)
st_jane_ambulance: (eight)
Day One: I'm only 700 words over quota. Woot and booyah!
st_jane_ambulance: (three)
Three and a half days until the crazy begins... but I'm ready to start NOW, DAMMIT.
st_jane_ambulance: (fourteen)
My outline is largely done, but needs going through to make sure everything makes sense, take care of plot holes, and find something to do for the characters who inexplicably disappear. That shouldn't take more than two weeks, right?
st_jane_ambulance: (thirteen)
I don't mean to count my basilisks before they hatch, of course, but having focus on a single story for longer than I can remember having in years, and this close to November, is a good sign. Usually it's a whole lot of indecision and flipflopping and ending up with half a dozen stories that aren't well planned, if they're planned at all, and lasting barely a week with only a few thousand words. I feel somewhat confident, though, due to the aforementioned focus, the solidish outline I've been working on, and the feeling that this isn't just a story I feel like writing, it's one I need to have told. Even if it's just to myself.

This surely might not reach 50,000 words, though, and I'll either work on another or still be able to say "Failing NaNo since 2009!" but if I just finish this one, it would be beyond awesome.

Have recently seen other people's thoughts on ReBoot season four that mirrored my own, specifically the bizarro animation of the faces and the entry on TVTropes' Seasonal Rot page. It's rather nice to know after all this time that I'm not the only one who had issues with this stuff. I feel much more justified in my attempt to rewrite. :)

Although if I don't get going on it soon it's gonna have to be a NaNo project. Note to self: when you get stuck, just drop a game cube.
st_jane_ambulance: (fifteen)
I usually do a pre-season thingy for my own funtimes, but September snuck up on my this year while I was up to my ass in ReBoot. So this is like a post-pre-season reactiony sort of whatsit.

(Oh seriously Firefox. "Snuck" isn't a word but "whatsit" and "thingy" are?)
This just needs out of my head so I can write something. )
