starlit_desires: (Buffy come as you aren't)
Top Ten Commenters )

I am going to go back to posting a weekly list of what I want to get done for the journal, including how many words I'd like to write. I find that sometimes if I don't force myself to write, then I get really lazy. Like I have been this week.

So as of tomorrow, I'd like to write 2500 words for the upcoming week:

Zokutou word meter
0 / 2,500

I've been working on my memories and tags, so both should be looking a lot better. Currently I am still working on them but I should be finished soon. And can I just say how much I miss my laptop.

I stole this from [profile] goddess_loki because she almost always gets the cool memes before I do.


Saw this, stole this: Every person on your flist gets to request a drabble (real drabble: 100 words exactly) from you. In return, they have to post this in their journal and write a drabble for you. Post all fandoms you're willing to write for.

Your friends can pick a relationship, a story arc, a missing scene, or pretty much anything they want, unless the author has previously mentioned that they will not write it. They comment with what they want, and you write drabbles and post it in your LiveJournal.

Fandoms I will write in: LJ Smith (Secret Circle or Night World), the Buffyverse, CSI, CSI: Miami, Labyrinth, and Harry Potter.

I will not write slash/fem slash in Harry Potter, LJ Smith or CSI: Miami (or Labyrinth but that's just because I can't see it happening). I will write slash and femslash in the Buffyverse. And I will write femslash in CSI. Those are my only restrictions.

Everyone can request at least two drabbles from me. When I finish with those, I might allow more requests, depending on how many requests I get.

Yes it's that time of the month again... and look it's the end of the month and everything. I know that I won't be posting anything else tonight, so I thought I'd get this posted now instead of mid-April.

the very small list of posts for the month of March )

Two little promotions:
[profile] spring_of_cordy - show your love for Cordelia Chase this spring and sign up!

[profile] csi50 - love the CSI shows? Want to write 50 fics? Go and sign up today!
starlit_desires: (Greg)
First of all... for any Cordelia Chase fans on my lists, please go sign up at [profile] spring_of_cordy and spread the word. It's starting March 21st and there's still a lot of days available for people to show their appreciation for Cordelia Chase through fanart and fanfic.

Also [profile] csi_drabbles just started it's new monthly contest, go check it out and join the community in order to participate.

So I should probably do this at the end of the month but as of late, the end of the month have not been good days for me...

February fanfiction posts )
starlit_desires: (Queen C)

I keep meaning to post this but I keep forgetting. Anyhow here is the list of fics that I posted for the month of January.

Onto the Fics.  )


Now I just need to get cracking on posting some fanfiction for this month....

Just an fyi for anyone who is interested, the second challenge at [profile] color_i_fic has just been announced. The deadline isn't until April and this sounds like it will be a fun one, be sure to check it out.

I am also working on a new fic/graphic community called [profile] spring_of_cordy it's still in the set up page, but be sure to check that out. I am hoping to have it all set up for sign-ups by the end of this weekend.

I am slowly but surely changing over all of my fanfiction to the new fanfic rating system from the MPAA rating system. For those of you not familar with the new rating system, here's the catagories:

FRC - Fan rated suitable for children. All ages permitted as there is no adult content within the fanfiction.

FRT - Fan rated suitable for teenagers. For the purposes of my fanfiction, this will be divided into FR13 and FR15. Essentially a fanfiction rated FR13 would be suitable for teens over the age of 13, and FR15 for teens over the age of 15.

FRM - Fan rated suitable for mature. Essentially no one under the age of 17 should be reading anything with this rating as the fanfiction will likely contain adult material, including sexual situations and violence.

FRAO - Fan rated suitable for Adults Only. Any fanfiction with this rating contains graphic sexual content or violence. All those under the age of 21, should ensure that it is legal for them to read material rated FRAO.

The original site:

For about a two week period to a month, I'll be rating all my fics posted here as the old system and the new system (ie PG13//FR13).

Long time no update.

My goal for this weekend is to get some of the fanfiction that I've already written posted. I have a total of about 6 short pieces to post and 2 longer pieces. Once I do that I think I might be able to get back to writing regularly.

Anyhow to help inspire my muse and give him something else to do besides making icons, I've started writing an essay on Willow & fanfiction. I figure that writing it will a) give me more insight into the character and make me think about Willow, b) give me something fandom-ish to do, and c) it will give me the writing practice I need when it comes to essay. To be honest I like writing essays. Anyhow, if people are interested in me posting an essay on Willow & fanfiction, please let me know.

That's it for now.

And apologies for spamming the friends list today...

Does anyone know where I can find some decent Cordy/Lindsey fics? I have a craving to read that pairing.

I am doing a lot better this week for wrting. Even with having to write exams and going to a concert. I still have some more writing that I am hoping to get posted on Sunday.

I'd like to get some more of "To Fix Broken Things" written by Sunday as well. But I don't know if I will be able to because my family is having my godmother over for dinner that night.

Anyhow here's my current word count (with what I have posted so far):

Zokutou word meterZokutou word meter
3,776 / 4,000

After last week I am quite proud of myself.

If you haven't requested an appreciation drabble from me yet, please go here and do so asap.

I totally missed my goal last week. Not surprising since I was feeling burned out. I probably came closer than I calculated because I wrote quite a bit by hand but I didn't type it up and it's a pain to count handwritten work.

Anyhow my goal this week is 4000 words. Wish me luck.

That's about it.


starlit_desires: (I'd do me (credit: thelalaprincess))
yes time for the weekly to do list.

1) Write 5000 words
2) Work on "Faith's Revenge" & "To Fix Broken Things" (and possibly other WIP)
3) Re-write "The Unusual Suspect"
4) Continue to finish updating Blood & Fangs.

It's not much but I've already started the 5000 words:

Zokutou word meterZokutou word meter
502 / 5,000

EDIT I put down the wrong word count, I only meant to get 4000 this week.
starlit_desires: (cordydemon (credit: beneathgulmissy))
Ugh I have so much I have to do...

I am not going to have a word count for this week. If I manage to get any non-academic writing done, then that's good. If not, then I am not going to worry.

Mind you I did get some writing done on a plot bunny that attacked me on the way to work this morning. I had an idea of Dopplegangland but with Vamp Xander coming to Sunnydale from the Wishverse rather than V. Willow. It's going to turn into a W/A fic too. Hard to explain. I got some of it written today.

Then when I was coming home from work I managed to get attacked by another plot bunny for original stuff. Cool.

Anyhow my goals this week:

1) to type up what I wrote last week so I can figure out if I managed to get 5000 words or not.
2) update my fics on other archives & my own site.
3) complete my History 416 paper due on Tuesday (this is probably the most important one of the lot.)

That's it.

EDIT: Last week's writing goal:
Zokutou word meter
5,483 / 5,000
starlit_desires: (csi's warrick (credit: evilgiraffe))
I am feeling good about this week & managing to write 5000 words. It's only Monday and I already have over 1000 words written.

Zokutou word meterZokutou word meter
1,830 / 5,000

Anyhow just posting this because I know I'll lose the piece of paper with my totals on it. Plus I'll probably be doing a massive clean up on Wednesday... so yeah hence the postage.

I probably won't post anything again until Wednesday!

EDIT: Since I was horribly wrong at that estimate of not posting again until Wednesday, here's my revised word count:
Zokutou word meterZokutou word meter
2,434 / 5,000

I so need more user pics than 50. Do you know how hard it is to pick user pics? Well I am sure you all know that. That's the only reason why I liked greatest journal was because of all the user pics.

Anyhow I changed my user pics and am probably going to be messing with the layout again.

I am bored but suffering from a slight bit of writers block.

That's it for now. I did manage to get a bit written today but nothing on my WIP's. I am going to try for a bit before I go to bed.

I wrote "A Ray of Sunshine" based on a challenge that I found at [profile] goddess_loki's Challenge Swap. However I posted the wrong link for it, the correct link is here:

If you like interesting challenges check it out. It's a fun thing to do.

Ok so I know that I wrote over 5000 words, I started a fic but I ended up ripping it up because it wasn't working for me. However, I don't know how many words I wrote and I am not about to guestimate. I did manage to come very close to my intended word count of 5000:

Zokutou word meterZokutou word meter
4,975 / 5,000

Weekly To Do List:

1) write 5000 words
2) work on WIP's, including "Faith's Revenge" and "To Fix Broken Things"
3) finish updating Blood & Fang (if I get that done, then I can update the Quizzical Essence of Willow, with my latest Willow fics.)
4) Mood theme for [profile] goddess_loki
5) Rewrite "The Unusual Suspect"
6) Work on some other challenges.
7) Enter fics into award sites.
8) Send fics to other archives.

This week has been super crazy for me. Well that's a wrong way of putting it. Between Sunday & Tuesday I was pretty sick and didn't really get that much done. Wednesday was the first day that I was feeling better and I used it to work on my site (Blood & Fang) so that I can start entering my fics into some awards sites & other archives because as I was saying to [personal profile] velvetwhip if I want to be serious about writing, I need to build up more confidence for it. So awards sites and other archives are a way to do that. One it gets me more feedback and two well if I can submit my fics to a wider audience that's a good thing.

And then Thursday, Friday & Saturday were all work days for me. On top of other things. I didn't get a chance to do much writing on Thursday or Saturday but I did get some done on Friday. And then yesterday I didn't get home til after midnight. Today I am going out with some friends to watch some movies. Something that I need to do.

So anyhow that's a mini-update on the fandom side of things (for more on the personal side, I'll be posting something at my main journal.)

I am so proud of myself, I seem to be on a roll. Not only did I finally finish uploading my personal archive yesterday with the new look that I'd started in February but I actually got 8 fics uploaded onto the site today. I probably would have gotten more done but I had to do other things. I am quite proud of myself.

I hope this keeps up. I'm finally motivated to get things done, which is always a good thing for me.

EDIT: Now if only I can get some work done on my Demonic Forsenics stuff I'd be even happier.
