I don't expect anyone to respond, but if you leave a comment, I'd be forever grateful! One story/series/line/whatever you liked, one thing you'd like to see more of and one area you think I could improve in. Thanks in advance. =)
( I'm very critical of my writing. )
I haven't heard much about the online capabilities of these things, though. Are they good for reading online stuff? Or should I just stick to lounging on the couch with my laptop and powerpack?
I'm afraid to write anything—don't even get me started on editing—because this damn platform has eaten whole posts alread. My master fic list? Gone. My 100 fic table? Gone.
I really don't need this. LJ, get off your ass and fix your problematic code.
The YunJae manifesto photos and other Photobucket photos WILL BE back...just not until Sept. 30/Oct. 1. I'm so poor right now I'm grocery shopping with my web money. *creys*
I'm currently trying to outline and crank out the next three or four chapters of "The Hours That Are Passed." I don't like writing without a map.
And finally, I still want to make those YunJae (OT5) plushies. And I'm dangerously close to doing it.
That's my life. How's yours? =)
Oh! And this blog has a sister Tumblr now. I like some of the writing challenges I've seen floating around there and the Tumblr fans are crazy active. I'm excited. Follow me?
Me (thinking): Oh shit. Don't say reading fanfiction. Don't say writing fanfiction. Don't say the word "fanfiction" at all. Pretend to be normal. For the sake of our rent check, PRETEND to be normal!!!
Me: I like ... the Internet. You know, doing stuff on the Internet.
And tonight I finished my first chaptered fanfic, "Love is Blind (But Lasik is Cheap)." I'm glad I've got it done. It's kind of a relief; I didn't want it to become one of those multi-part stories that never end. Now I can go back to writing one-shots with no point. I feel slightly guilty for writing it on a Saturday night, though. Being whacked out on allergy medication is horrible for my social life, but it seems that it's been great for my fan life. Next week I'm going to a night club. I promise.
Future for Pazz_and_jop consists of manifestos and one-shots. I'm excited. How about y'all?
I'm mad I have no other place to post this than on Live Journal, because I had to go and attach my real name every place else (Twitter, Word Press/personal website, Facebook).
I'm discouraged that I've completed nearly two dozen job applications and gotten barely a word back.
I'm depressed because all of my family and friends are at least eight hours away.
I'm disgusted by this city, the lack of anything in it and the rude people who live here. I want to get out of this place so badly, but nothing I do works. I didn't get enough grant money to be able to afford to go back and get my masters. I can't get anybody to contact me back after applying to jobs. And I can't figure out if it's worse to be unemployed and live in a city I can actually stand than it is to stay employed in a city that makes me feel so awful. I'm sick of this job. I'm sick of living in a city that always stinks. I'm sick of the lax attitude my co-workers seem to have about the job.
I'm so tired of scouring job boards and websites for a damn job opportunity.
I'm sad that I probably won't be able to do NaNoWrMon because I'm so busy writing stupid cover letters and letters of inquiry. I haven't written anything in over two months because I have no motivation because I'm so angry by my situation.
And I have absolutely no idea what to do about any of it. I can't move back in with my mother, no matter what she says. And I have to stay employed; I have too many bills. I feel like I'm just spinning my wheels and going absolutely no where. I cannot tolerate the idea of another year here, but it seems inevitable.
I just spent two weeks trying to figure out how to change the style of my journal only to learn I had downloaded the wrong theme. I is dumb.
I'd like tweak it a little more, but you have to pay. I already pay for internet space, at www.myrealnamehere.com. I'm not paying for something on LJ's servers. =/ Oh well.
