But, there are other werewolves out there. Probably people or things who know about stone boxes, too. With Andrews always wanting you two away from others, you never got a catch. I’m saying now, maybe you could get answers I can’t give. )

The lovely website tvtropes is often a time suck. And by that I mean you can spend hours on it and not even noticed that you've wasted half your day. There is also a lovely thing on Tumblr, where you find tropes to describe your favorite fictional characters and make a picture/gif set with them. I thought I'd try it with my stories.

Third up: Simon Turner from Surely Someday. Come get to know (and see!) her.


Who is Simon? )

Simon really doesn't think you'll bother to read this.

As you may (or may not) know I've been having some medical issues lately. Seizures. I have them. And during the months of Feb-March I had five. One of which was a grand mal or tonic; it was huge. The largest I've ever had - completely with peeing on myself and forty minutes of memory loss. It was also followed by a small partial seizure, in which I sobbed for five minutes. Thankfully it happened at home. Though it did happen in the early morning hours and I'm so lucky I wasn't alone. (Apparently I thought people were after me and stumbling around.)

It's most likely an issue related to my new anti-seizure meds. (Which I already hate because they have terrible side effects) But, we did an MRI to be safe. I have some issues with small spaces and actually had a panic attack in the open air MRI. (Hey, the top is right at my nose and they strapped my head into a box.) Not sure if it came out okay, but since I haven't heard from my doctor - they either didn't come out or there is nothing wrong.

In the meantime, it's time to write. Seriously need to get back into it. I miss it. It's like a part of me is missing when I'm not writing something. I have the next part of Surely Someday in the works. Just working out some stuff with Henry and Andrews getting to the cottage. But, I have some lovely bonding planned for the other three. Warren and Simon fighting over which animal would win in a fight; Maggie offering to be with Simon when he transforms. I'm already planning Set 2 of the story and Set 1 ends in the best cliffhanger, you guys.

On a side note, I sort of (maybe down the road or maybe sooner. I already have too much! Stop getting ideas!) have a spin-off of Surely Someday in my head. It would explore the supernatural elements more and how the supernaturals get on together in the 'real world' and involve the Men in the Black Coats/Cloaks. And I have a really basic plot and some rough outlines of characters. Does anybody want to know more about it?

I know that every Sunday I'm supposed to post six sentences from my newest work, but this Sunday will have to be a pass. Why? I ended up writing a short prequel to Set/Arc 2 of Surely Someday that would give away too much. It may also end up being a spin off one day, so I'm keeping it under-wraps until Set/Arc 1 is finished. At that rate I'm going, that will be sometime around June. I also need/want to start writing my other two stories, but I'm a bit lost as to were to go with them; so, they are on 'pause' at this time. (In the mean time, I am reading - even if I forget to comment. Most of the reading is quick, like at lunch or late at night before bed)

I'm still at my job, and it has actually gotten worse since the Holidays. I'd like to go into details, but I don't really want to bring anyone down or get into it at the moment. My one regret is that I took the job, but the interview was so great and they were so nice! Now, I feel like an outsider and have literally cried in the bathroom. I'd love another job, but let us be real, there are none. It took me a year to find this one. I can't leave unless I have something else lined up. I've started looking this afternoon and have already applied to four jobs. I hope to be out of this unhealthy environment (seriously I'm sick) within the next two months.

Surely Someday, Story 5

At last count Andrews noticed five voice messages from Simon. He knew that he should check them, maybe even call the younger man back, but he just couldn’t bring himself to do it. Not after the way Simon had acted earlier. Andrews didn’t much like the idea of Simon accusing him of wanting out of his responsibilities toward Maggie. Nor was he very fond of Simon trying to suggest that the sedatives wouldn’t work properly. As far as Andrews had been able to figure out, the only way to get Maggie out of their home was by sedation or coffin. And he had promised her long ago that he would never put her in another coffin.

From Surely Someday, Story 5

She stared at him for a long moment, seriously giving it some thought. There was a large part of her that like that idea. Yet, Maggie knew it would never work. Things were better off the way they were, even if she didn’t always like them. “It’s a nice fantasy, but it would never work. I can’t have them living just for me. I would hate myself if I made them be that far away from society. It’s maddening never seeing anyone. Humans need interaction. We should stay as we are.”

Charlie said they were stars, the messy yellow blobs that he had painted on the bedroom ceiling. In actuality she thought they looked like large dots or splashes of paint, but she wouldn't say anything. When she had told him that she had wanted to see stars, Charlie had gotten right on it, buying a ladder and paint. He had spent a whole day locked in his bedroom, only coming out for a wine bottle around noon.  Anything for his Lennie. He wanted to give her the moon, but he’d settle for giving her the stars.

It's been a tough last couple of months. My dad has had two major health issues (cancer and heart) and has been in the hospital for two weeks out of the last eight. He's now cancer free and recovering really well from his heart surgery! That's why I've been away a lot. Had to help out around the house, visit my dad, and take care of him. BUT, I haven't forgotten my writing.

In fact I'm half way done with the first set of Surely Someday. If this were a novel, I'd be at the half way mark. I have yet to start story five (though I have written some Wonderlife and Addictions shorts - posts to come), I do have some sneak peeks for my reader(s).

We’re falling. I’m clinging to the skin of this house, but I’m so sleepy. If I let go . . . what will happen? )

Hello

Sep. 13th, 2012 11:13 pm
walkwithheroes: [Strange Heroes] (Look After Her)
There are several things I'd like to discuss and say sorry for during this post.

A) I have not found a job yet, but I've been busy this last month. There is a lot of family stuff that I'd rather not go into detail. Also, I've been doing volunteer work three-four times a week for the last month and a half. Usually the volunteer work is for four-six hours a day, and it's in busy non-profits.

B) I'm behind on my reading for rainbow. For that: "I'm sorry." However, I've been so busy/sleepy/occupied that I knew I couldn't fully enjoy or even understand anything I read. So, I've just not read. I plan on reading at least one thing from all the authors I follow at rainbow this weekend.

C) I haven't written a thing since I sent the first half of Surely Someday's fourth chapter to be beta'ed. However, I plan to write one mini collection for Wonderlife, one dialogue only piece for Addictions, and two or more scenes for Part 2 of Surely Someday's fourth chapter this weekend/next week.

D) I've decided to do an audio "interview" for my writing and stories. If you'd like, in the comments you can leave questions about my three stories, writing style, plots, characters, etc. You can ask as much as you like, and I'll answer them in audio form within the next two weeks. If you all like it, I'll suggest it to the rainbowlounge as maybe a fun thing authors can do.

I'm working on the fourth story in Surely Someday's first arc, and I just made myself really sad. Basically the sedatives aren't making Maggie sleepy, but they are doing things to the way her mind works. And. . .Andrews and Simon are going to fight!

Two questions:

Does anyone else ever picture actors/actresses as characters in the stories they read at rainbowfic?

For example, when I read The Tenth Sage/Legend of the Iron Plum Blossom by [personal profile] isana, I picture Ariel Lin as Yan and Chiaki Kuriyama as Setsuko. Weirdly I picture the male characters as different actors, depending on what I'm watching.


Does anyone have actors/actresses that they've "casted" as the characters in their works?

Wonderlife has "casted" people as the characters. You can see that in the icons at the DW journal and in the trailers/promos. Addictions sort of has a cast, as does Surely Someday. I'm actually currently "casting" Surely Someday.

He couldn’t be taking the sedatives for creepy reasons. Maybe he had sixty sick cows that he needed to perform surgery on? That was ridiculous. Who had cows in the city? )
