Bits and Pieces

sick

current mood: sick

2ch has been quite active with talk about the latest Migawari novel (~no Kokuhaku) ever since the no spoiler period ended. At a guess, I should have the book early / mid next week and am really looking forward to reading it. The only thing that worries me is that everyone's saying that they want to read the next book even more than they wanted to read this one! >.<;; At a guess, the next book will be coming out in January (assuming the author maintains her current release rate). O_O;; Original thought on 2ch was that the next vol would be the end of both the Chalon arc as well as the series, but current opinion is that there're still too many loose ends to be wrapped up for it to be the end of the series (or at least so people hope). Personally, I'm hoping that the series will still continue after the next volume. :P

Otherwise, again according to 2ch, younger brother Kelpie shows up again in the current SS in Cobalt for HakuYou. Shall see how the comments go for it over the next while, but it's possible that not much will be said about it since it's a mag release and not an actual book. I'm still debating if I want to try picking up Cobalt mag or not since the only thing I really read in there is HakuYou. >.> There's another series that I'm curious about with a SS in the current issue, but since I haven't actually read the first book for it yet... I'm not sure if I really want to pick it up.

BTW, how many folks are planning on doing NaNo this year? I've already been to the site since relaunch, but haven't completely decided on what, if anything, I'll do this year. >.<;

I have signed my soul to writing, lol, so I'll be doing plus I have too many projects kicking me in the head that need to be written.

You know you wanna join the craziness. November just won't have the same hectic 'gotta catch up' feel otherwise ^_^

*laughs* Heaven knows I always fall behind early on and have to rally to catch up. Although this year I'm not planning on writing in Japanese, so that should make things much easier. :P I'll have to give some more thought to the ideas that are sort of in the brain and go from there.

BTW, are you pre-planning your story this year? Good luck with things! ^_^

Yay! Another person in for the insanity! ^_^ Have you decided what you want to write (in general or specific) yet?

I think I'm going to continue with what I was doing last year, which is sort of an original story. Its about 7 (then 8) gay porn stars who have to live together and the crazy that happens.

*blink* ^^;; The brain automatically started thinking in one direction, so I think I'll go wash it out now. *laughs*

I actually write porn very badly. But thankfully, most of the "action" so to speak, happens outside of sex... Though, if I felt like it, I could write the porn they film. XD

*laughs* Its okay. The thought of the combinations that can happen are sometimes distracting. XDD

*laughs* That's just it. It's that the brain automatically assumed one thing, and the other possibilities only started coming after a few moments pause. ^^; Good luck with it! (And all the distractions, too! ^^; )

I'm thinking about doing NaNo this year since I'm not going to be as crazy busy as last year, but I don't know if I would hit the word limit. Probably could (given how epically long my previous short stories have been XD ) but I haven't signed up yet.

I know what you mean about time constraints, but fortunately, that probably won't be an issue for me this year. ^_^ I'm still waffling between fanfic and original fic if I do decide to go for it, but having a clearer plan would really help, too. >.> Good luck with plotting/planning!

I'm tempted to just start writing and seeing where that will go, are you supposed to plan NaNo's out or not? It'll be fun either way. :3

Not necessarily. It's an anything goes approach to writing, so if you want to pre-plan you can, but it's by no means necessary. ^_^ The first time I did NaNo (GH fanfic IW), I had a couple of scenes that I wanted to write and the rest came out as I wrote, while last year, I had it much more planned out (although I ended up with some massive plot holes that still need to be filled in). ^^;

I'm doing Nano again this year. Maybe this time I'll actually finish. One can always hope.

I have to admit, things are feeling really waffly for me this year. >.> Good luck with your NaNo! ^_^

lucy - uh...

I've heard of NaNo before but have never really been curious enough to look it up. Before now. And I've gone and signed up. *gulp*

Here's to all of us finishing.

*laughs* Yay! You've taken the first step towards taking the plunge! Good luck! Less than one month to get the brain in the write frame of mind and the story concept hammered out... ^^;
