New Year

In the new year, I hope I can become a better blogger. I do enjoy it, I just find myself distracted by far too many things. Since I last posted, I have written for a couple of contests, tying for first in one of those, and have generally changed the entire outline for my fic, Brilliance. Surprised? No, I didn't really think you would be, but I felt I should touch on this anyhow. I'm learning that when I'm writing, I often veer into a different direction than I had been previously heading - not that this is a bad thing. In fact, I believe this is a good thing. My writing seems to be affected by my mood, and I feel I can write more...emotionally, I think you could say, when I'm actually paying attention to my own mood swings. I've been told my angst is palpable and the lemons are good, which is great. But I really want to give humor a go. I'm a funny person in general, but in writing, it's harder to get each thought onto the page, to display the tenor of the conversation or situation. I'm going to look at it as a learning experience. Hopefully one I can grow from as a writer. I suppose this is enough blathering for now. Be on the lookout for more posts!

I Think I Need Another Blog

While I realize I have been quite neglectful in my blogging duties, I have decided to start another for non-fanfiction things. I would like to devote this blog to nothing but fanfiction and yes, I'm sure a few other things will pop up, I'm okay with that. I have been incredibly busy the last month and am hoping to be able to update things much sooner. For those of you reading Brilliance, I apologize in the extreme delay in updates. I promise the next chapter is coming soon! I've been looking into contests and have been beta'ing, among real life duties. As it stands, it looks like we are going to have five more chapters and an epilogue to finish my first attempt at fanfiction.

I would like to explore my first story with you, if I may. Looking back on it, I am extremely disappointed with my first two chapters. There are so many things I would do differently. I also regret making Jake the antagonist. When I started, I had only read a couple fics and all of them, save one, featured Jake the Bad Guy, so I felt this was the norm. I am not strictly Team Edward, so to speak. For Bella, obviously it had to be Edward. But I love Jake. I think he's a fabulously written character and extremely lovable. He also makes a great third to the triangle, because he is rather tempting... By the way, it's okay for me to like Taylor Lautner. He's 18 and only 8 years younger than myself. Wait, where was I? Oh yes, I knew I started with my fic. I do like how I can see my progression as a writer from the beginning to end. Not to toot my own horn, but the last chapters are far better than the first. I only hope I can keep improving.

I am going to be switching things up a bit, hopefully tomorrow. I am going to add a "One Shot" section and I'd like to do a few reviews of a couple of fics. I may also see about doing an interview or two with a couple of authors. If you know anybody interested, contact me. I'd love to hear from you.

Thank you for being fabulous listeners, I have to admit, it's nice to be able to open up and express my love of this glorious world of fanfiction! Oh yeah, and if you have any recommendations for me, send me a link and I'll look into it. New fics, old fics, one shots, crack fics... I love it all!

My first-ever fic, Brilliance, is now officially outlined and there is an end in sight. While the ending brings on feelings of loss, I am very much looking forward to my next few projects. I'm always on the lookout for contests, as I've never entered and am completely ready to do so! I have a few one shots planned and I haven't decided on my next multi-chaptered fic yet. I'm leaning toward trying my hand at a comedy piece. We shall see. For now...beta time!! Oh, and my brownies are almost finished. I love brownies.

I Don't Know What Day it is Anymore

I'm a bad blogger...I haven't updated in a while - I do apologize. I've been lost in a bad mood. Not really sure why, but whaddiya gonna do about it? Shit happens. I have some writing to do...perhaps if I soak into a lovely lemony chapter I won't feel like I want the Earth to open up and swallow me whole. Also, I think I just made the sun disappear.

Blog: Day Three

Okay, I think I've got this thing good and figured out. It's now my bitch. Only one thing for now, as I forgot what I was going to rant about. Tonight a totally funny and awesome thing happened. I was given an award by my Fanfiction hero: BellaFlan and her Trifuckta members, wordslinger and jkane180. I have posted a picture of my award. You will find it at the lower left side of the page. *giggle*snort* I fucking love it. Well, I suppose that is all for tonight because I have some serious beta'ing to do. Peace.

It's not all about FF

While fanfiction is an integral part of my life, I just wanted to share with you another random thought...or two. I hate 'one-uppers'. Yeah, you know what I'm talking about. Someone says or does something and another bitch comes along and tries to one-up ya! WTF? Assholes! What makes me even more annoyed is when people one-up on stupid things. You say, "Hi!" to someone and they come along and say some shit like, "Good evening, sir and/or madam. I hope this day finds you well." And it just makes you poke their eyes out. I try very hard not to engage in one-upping the one-upper. Try to take the high road. However, that's not always the case. Every now and again you just gotta beat 'em - gotta have that last word.  Also, I like swearing. :)

Blog: Day Two

I'm getting some kinks worked out. I promise. Also, just for the record: I will probably be changing the hell out of things as I go. I'm hungry.
