Time time time ain’t got any of it

Decided that I’d finally get around to my novel rewrite this summer, there’s barely any time for breathing as it is right now.

Novel rewrite?

Yeah, I finished the rough (first) draft, and I’m about to launch into the second run through of it, assuming I live past this next four weeks of exams and moving out.

But more news will be posted here and at my writing tumblr (, so stay tuned for the fun stuff.  This is the novel that I did for NaNoWriMo 2012, but like I said, a rewrite is necessary here.

Rewrites might just become my friend this summer. *sigh*

Will post more novel details at a later date.  Maybe tomorrow.



So I’m back.  Was sick for a while, had to recover from that, and then catch up on the mountain of schoolwork.  On top of that as well was the short story fiction that I’m working on right now as a part of classwork.

I’m waiting for next week however to really get down to business about it because that’s when I’ll have all the time in the world.  But it really needs to be sorted out, especially after today’s (slightly, okay I lied it was very) embarrassing episode involving a lot of unbelievable information in the latest installment.  So that all needs to be sorted out.  And I need to get off my rear and edit some work from last December.  There’s been some demands on the fanfiction spectrum that need to be met, and tomorrow is when that will be done.  (It’s a response to a challenge from Tumblr, but I won’t talk about that much here)

So once school is done for now (and I’m packed to travel again, that’s going to take a while), maybe I can get something worthwhile out.  We’ll see.




Short story here.

I was cleaning out my desktop folders and stumbled upon some old projects (think, ‘2009-2010 old’) that had been put aside.  At the time I didn’t think I was going to return to them, but seeing an old potential NaNoWriMo project got me thinking about it again, and so I’m going to go back to those and start re-writing the first chapter (this will be the seventh attempt) in order to get to the rest of the story.

I had been hesitant about publishing the story on, but I figured I’m not going to do anything else with it.

On a completely unrelated note, anyone familiar with Hetalia Axis Powers?  Two of my characters from this revived project resemble Arthur Kirkland (Great Britain) and Alfred Jones (United States).

My characters were created back in 2009-2010.  I just got into Hetalia over the summer.


The funny thing is that the one who resembles Alfred is American, but leans more toward his English roots.  The one who resembles Arthur doesn’t acknowledge his roots, preferring a ‘quiet’ life in Washington D.C.

I’m not thinking too much into that one.  It’ll make more sense once it’s up and going.

But this weekend, (after I get the editing done for class manuscript #3), I’m going to start writing the revived project.  We’ll call that one ‘Revive’ (how original, I know) until I publish the first chapter to Fictionpress.

The Fictionpress account link will be available once I find out what the heck happened to the profile editing formats.

Ahh, classwork now.
