leaveatrailoffire: deny me and be doomed (Default)
I have not been writing at-fucking-all. It sucks, but there is a reason. My computer (with all my writing stuff on it--notes, actual stories themselves, MUSIC OH MY GOD ALL MY MUSIC) managed to acquire some kind of virus, which we took our own sweet time in getting fixed. Apparently the guy doing the fixing now is making progress, which sounds good because although I have all the writing stuff backed up, I DO NOT HAVE MY MUSIC. WHICH IS VITAL IN ME WRITING. I mean, I have some stuff on my mp3 player, but out of the 22 scenes with very specific music that I have planned out for BURN THE DEVIL OUT, I have only 10 songs, and they're scattered all over the place.

I did write a ficlet thing for a mix of music that I made my friend--I need to post that somewhere. I also worked on an application for a roleplay I'm involved in, Beyond the Rift, and that's been eating my brain. I've also been reading a lot more, which is good I guess.

Maybe I should try poking at THE AFTER ADVENTURES, or THE TEAM, because my brain's been really focused on HER I MUST FOLLOW and BURN THE DEVIL OUT recently. OUT has to wait until I get my computer back, because I fail at writing screenplays without proper formatting.

Mostly I'm just frustrated with myself. Rrrh.

Exam week has once again rolled around, and I should be stuyding. I am not right now, because I don't know if I can study for this stupid English exam any more. However, I am also not letting myself write because I CAN'T. Because I should be studying. HOWEVER. There is no rule against me POSTING ABOUT MY WRITING. SO HAH.

Okay. Um. Where to begin. I have NO idea what's going on with THE TEAM. That thing doesn't even have a plot right now. It's kind of ridiculous. It just consists of Finn passing out and waking up. Not that I mind, because I love her, but.

I'm resisting writing KILLING THE DEVIL in first person. Because that's just so cliche, and it could work in third if my brain didn't insist it be in first. Or something. I don't know. It feels TOO removed in third, and it's a pretty upclose and personal story. I don't know. It's frustrating.

And then, we have the as yet untitled screenplay I'm writing based on vaguely real events for my friend for her graduation. It's about a mutual friend as an action hero, based on certain events that actually happened that I've twisted and changed the order of so it makes more sense in the context of the story. It's not a full-length screenplay by any means--just a basic breakdown of scenes and dialogue and fun stuff. But I'm enjoying it and I think it's pretty funny if you know the whole story, hah. OH. Just thought of a title. I love when stuff like that happens. A CHANCE HAPPENING. You'd... get it if you knew the whole story. Or something. The title will probably change at some point. I don't know.

OH MY GOD. I just went into my writing folder to make a file the previously mentioned screenplay, and I found OUT, which was going to be my romantic comedy for ScriptFrenzy before I came to my senses and dropped out in favor of We Write in Hell. MAN I will have no problem writing four hours a day with all these projects.

And, of course, JUMP WITHOUT THINKING is laying across the room moping at me to pls be revised. THAT IS ANOTHER SUMMER PROJECT, DAMMIT. Or something.
