And it's time for NaNo! Good luck to everyone participating! (I haven't a clue what I'm going to write yet. It's worse than pulling teeth at the moment. >.> )

FWIW, I've now read up to book 13 for Hakushaku to Yousei, although I skipped any short story books and still haven't finished book 1. Raven's still my fave character in this series! ^o^ This series is lots of fun. So much humour, some good story, it's definitely a light novel series though; it also lacks the writing style and depth of Saiunkoku or Shounen Onmyouji. It can make me laugh, but so far it's only made me sniffly once.

There are sooo many funny scenes in this series though! ^o^ Two more books to go plus all the short stories, but... I'm going to have to hang reading for writing now. >.> Argh! Why must it be so hard to sit down and write?? Reading may be done after I reach my daily word count. ......Yeah right. As if I have that sort of self-discipline! ^^;;

Good luck to everyone doing NaNo~!

Oh, and on the off-chance anyone's interested, this is the English version of the synopsis for this year's NaNo. However, I'm not sure if I'll stick with this story or go with something else. ^^;

The SPR Regulars and Irregulars have been called out on a case to investigate a large Western Style mansion in XX prefecture. According to the client, poltergeist activity has been occurring there, but that's not all. Unable to clearly describe the problem, their client explains that their daughter Kana has also changed a little since they moved to the mansion. Unfortunately, the change is minor and they're not sure if Kana had simply changed since they'd moved or if it was more significant--possibly because of a spirit.

Upon reaching the mansion, the members quickly set about setting up the equipment for the investigation when Mai ends up getting knocked out falling down the stairs. Masako witnessed Mai's accident, but is so shaken that she is unable to tell the others about what had happened right away. Unsure whether the mansion is or isn't haunted, and despite their concern for Mai, the others continue their work. However, when Mai regains consciousness...

Good luck to your nano! :) I'm really impressed that you're going to write in Japanese. Hope one day you'll do it up in English.

I'm going to try my hand at writing GH for the nano too. Haven't start yet though. I'm practising the art of procastinating first.

Good luck with your NaNo! ^o^

Procrastination is always a major beast to defeat. *sigh*

*laughs* Cheers! ^_^ There's supposed to be some downtime tonight, so hopefully things'll be much faster once the new server is brought online. I have to admit, the site's been quite frustrating so far. ^^;

Good luck to you on your NaNo! I can't tell you how impressed I am that you're going to write it in Japanese. Wow!

Ooh, definitely interested... write girl write!! ^^;
Although I might want to see rest of IW in English done maybe first before the new NaNo gets an English version (well, assuming you will)

Argh, Hakushaku to Yousei still only one episode subbed.

*laughs* I don't know if I'd ever translate a NaNo let alone a full investigative story. It's just so *long*! ^^;;

Hakushaku's so much fun. I want book 16! >.<;;

Eh? Eigo only fans only get the summary? *pouts*
There's still more IW chapters in English (over)due isn't there?

Getting my titles confused, one group is subbing it. Must be entertaining to distract you enough ;)

:P Not to mention the writing is currently pulled-teeth horrible. >.>

There is.

^^;; The main thing is it's really quite humourous and that's what's keeping me distracted with it. It's just soooo silly! ^^;;
