Urgh. Well, to distract myself from the soul-sucking stuff, here's a short list of stuff I'll be doing in the future.

- [ profile] megaflare_ff, aka the Final Fantasy Big Bang. WHAT AM I DOING

Funny how the desire to do stuff suddenly ten-folds after you recover from a slump. Wish me luck!

I have things to share!

- This post is a description of my life. I'm actually okay with this.

- For Mad Men-fans and friends of clothes, be sure to check Tom & Lorenzo's (who run an awesome blog about fashion and TV-shows) series on clothes in Mad Men and what those clothes tell about their wearers. Awesome stuff.

- My 750 Words process keeps on being a process, and after last week's break of the word dam in general this week was all about my creativity dam breaking, which means I have finally reached that stage again where I don't hate everything I write. YES! \o/

- Thanks to this I'm finally, FINALLY getting around to posting my woefully late [ profile] help_haiti fic, after which I'll write the other stuff I've promised to people. A lesson learned: Don't participate in these events gain because this is PATHETIC AND YOU SHOULD BE ASHAMED, SELF.

- I've been riding on a massive emotional roller-coaster for, like, forever, ranging from life changes to a long-time identity issue, but now things are starting to click in place. I feel extremely great over this.

- Will get around to posting the posts for my latest meme (LJ/DW) as well as the memes [ profile] mrasaki tagged me for a long time ago (seriously, who is late in doing meme answers?). But in order to aid myself in getting rid of the "never post anything ever" habit, here is a 30 Days Of TV Meme.

Day 01 - A show that should never have been cancelled )

Rest of the days )

I've been feeling very depressed about my writing some time now (think a year WAIT HOW DID I LET THAT HAPPEN), and as a consequence I also haven't been writing much. I've been searching for ways to finally break out of that funk, and I finally found one in 750 Words.

The idea of 750 Words is what the title and the fact it's a writing-related site implies: your goal is to write 750 words every day, and you can do that on the site itself in complete privacy. You get points and badges for writing and you can get stats for each entry about how quickly you're writing, what words you use the most, what is the mood of your entry and so on. I only started using it this week but it has already succeeded in encouraging me to write every day, and given how long my funks tend to last that is a huge thing. Thanks to [personal profile] littlebutfierce for introducing this!

My life is going to get busy very soon, so let us procrastinate before that busy time!

Okay, so my fic is too drabble/ficlet based for people to get grasp of it, but..

Now, some writers embrace their id and write it all out there, and that can be a fabulous thing. Self-awareness FTW. But often when I'm reading a fic I find myself wanting to tap the author and say, "Pardon me, did you know your id is showing?"

So, a couple of us got to wondering what our fics revealed about us. Hence this anonymeme. Are our ids showing?

Tell meeeeeeeeee...

Things I've learned this week:

- Man, I sound like a robot. Seriously, I've been looking at the comments I've been dropping around and Kraftwerk starts playing in my head.

- If you feel paranoid about something, there's usually a reason for it. Not listening to your paranoia may lead to some academic fail. >_<

- FF7-specific: If you like both Tifa and Aerith, you will always and forever be in a minority. It's the law of nature.

- Kristin Kreuk-specific: Apparently if you play an unpopular female character on TV once, you will be a pariah forever. I mean some Smallville-fans are actually shocked that she wasn't Lana on that Chuck-episode. Way to be supportive of other women there, people.

- Female characters need more loving. True story.

And then the memes. Meme the First:

The first FIVE people to comment in this post get to request that I write a drabble/ficlet of any pairing/character of their choosing. (If I don't know the fandom, I'll give you chance to change, or I can make something up.) In return, they have to post this in their journal, regardless of their ability level.

DW version here so you can keep count.

Meme the Second:

Comment with the name of a female character (in any show, movie, book, comic, etc that you think I'm familiar with) and I'll tell you one thing I love about her. In return, you can do the same in your journal (if you like!).

You are also free to combine these two memes: Ask me about a female character, then make me write about her. Everything is a go this weekend!

So, my [ profile] femgenficathon story was supposed to grow around this snippet.

Watchmen, Sally, 135 words, references to violence )

Then all sorts of crap happened and the fic died. The end.

Now, I probably won't get much writing done this year aside from NaNo (I backed out last year, but this time I'm hoping to reach the 25 000 word mark at least) and [ profile] yuletide (I've participated in that ever since I first came to LJ and have no intentions of stopping), but I have to find a way to stop sitting in the lethargy swamp all the time. It's not that I lack ideas, it's just concentrating that's apparently too much of a big deal for me. Grumble grumble.
