queenofzan: (O rly?   Sammy!)
So, I just got back from my first meeting of the writing group that grew out of my area's NaNo community. It was interesting. I've never actually been part of a writing group before that was both real-life and made up of people who weren't my friends. They were all people I knew vaguely from write-ins and such in November, but no one I really knew, and so I was a little quieter than I might have otherwise been, when it came to speaking up and critiquing and such.

Overall, it was enjoyable, and I'm looking forward to the next meeting, two Thursdays from now. I managed to only spend five dollars even though we were at an IHOP, so I feel like I did good there. And there were only a total of six people there, three of whom I knew from write-ins and one of whom was me, so I didn't get as freaked-out-closed-mouth-stare-straight-ahead as I might have. I was definitely the youngest person there, though, and I felt like the most inexperienced, but that might not have been true. I just always get a little awkward when people start talking about how terrible they were when they were younger, and "when they were younger" invariably turns out to be about my age now. Oh well.

Just figured I'd write this up since it was what I missed out on a gazillion other things for--a Sleeping Beauty ballet, Volleyball, and a movie are just a few of the things people invited me to do on this particular Thursday, and I skipped all of them to go to the writing group. I feel like I made the better decision there (though I really wanted to go to Sleeping Beauty).

So, that was the big exciting part of my week. Next week I have my first few exams for this semester, and we start sewing in costume class. Hopefully I'll get some more work on Silver Chain done, and maaaaaaybe I will finish another writing comic.

One: Comics should not be this addicting.

Two: We should probably actually do something as long as Sophie is here.

Three: Writing outlines is not difficult. Plots, however, still are.

Four: Holy shit that is a huge monster I am so glad I am not playing this game.

That is all.

Fun fact: I saw three movies in as many days! (Hancock, Wall-E, and Get Smart)

Fun fact number two: I cried at Hancock but not Wall-E (though okay, it was close)

Fun fact number three: alksflksdjfaksdghglaslkdkfjdj spies.

Thought I was done being sick. Evidently not. Still working on the epilogue because I don't trust myself to write when I have a cold. Mostly because my fever-addled brain is even less sensical than my regular one.

Also: wrote an entire fic in my head yesterday that wouldn't have made sense to anyone but me. Figured it was a lost cause to try to write any of it. Also, by the end, I had forgotten the brilliant way I started it. Sigh.

Have two fully colored pages of comics and ten (I think) more drawn with inked borders and balloons. Haven't done any studying, haven't played any video games, have watched all of Season One Supernatural for the second time, started on season two, and finished watching all the commentary on Buffy and Angel. I am such a huge loser! But that's okay.

Now, I am going to go watch things blowing up, because that is the only good part of this ungodly hot holiday. Well, that and making fun of my dad because it is his birthday. And taking him to go see Get Smart because, hey, what better way is there to spend time with your family than sitting next to them in the dark for two hours and not talking?

...and in my head (and probably [livejournal.com profile] nehi's too) that last sentence has all sorts of terrible connotations. Hate my brain. Happy America Day! (woo blowing things up!)

I am in no way about to draw a comic based on chapter 30 of FWOAP. In no way!

Also, there will in no way be small comics about random Hartigan and Ford family members. Because what kind of loser draws spin-off comics after finishing the book? NOT ME, THAT'S FOR SURE.

Now, where did I put that comic paper? Man, I need a new sketchbook. Or two.

P.S. I will also totally not be posting icons based on lines people liked from FWOAP at any point. Not even for my own personal amusement. Or even Shannon's. despite the fact that I owe her.

p.p.s. DUDE I AM WRITING THE EPILOGUE OF A BOOK. BECAUSE I AM ALMOST DONE WITH IT. AS IN, SEVERAL HUNDRED WORDS FROM THE END. Duuuuuuude.

First of all, this was the best April Fools' Day ever. I didn't get a chance to pull any jokes, but there were chances! And I witnessed some amazing ones.

But mostly, my day is summed up by this text I sent some boy in Wisconsin (if you are reading this, I love you):

argh one day i will live in a house where all the animals use the bathroom outside and i have to clean up far less feces everyday.

...yeeeeah.

Boring writing stuff that I really just need to write down somewhere and which I'm sure no one else wants to know (unless maybe they were stalking me but I don't think anyone is right now so yes!) )

YES THAT ENTIRE THING WAS JUST AN EXCUSE FOR THAT LAST SENTENCE. SO WHAT.
