So I have this novel I started during NaNo, right? I wrote 30k words, plotted the whole thing out, fell in love with people who weren't the JJ's (!!!) and basically started doing what I've said I wanted to do for YEARS.

And now it's the end of January, and I want to finish the first draft by my birthday in April, b/c I can be just as symbolic as the next person, BUT. I'm having a hard time getting down to tacks here when I ALSO want to write the JJ's making out in the surf of some white-sand beach, and Merlin and Arthur falling in love in Victorian England. I was moaning to [ profile] sori1773 about this a few weeks ago.

Me: What's wrong with me? It's like I'm purposely distracting myself! If it weren't for NaNo, I would never have started the book in the first place. *frets*
She: So do another NaNo.

She's smarter than I am. It's one of the reasons I love her. :D

Soooooo, I'm taking a live journal break for the month of February to work on my book. (eeep!) I'll still be around on email, and to answer bigbang questions, and I'll most definitely be back in March.

But BEFORE I GO *g*, I'd like to offer up some datestamps, if anyone's interested. (oh, man. I never do stuff like this b/c I always expect, you know, *crickets* in response, but.)

Comment here with a future time frame and the title of anything I've written, anything at all. I'll write a few hundred words in that 'verse and post them on Monday.

Thanks for playing. :D

ETA: That's ten, so I'm going to cap it here. Thanks so much for the prompts! :D:D

I would love a follow-up to either So Close To My Heart or to Open Mic Night. (I saw the person above me also asked for Heart, so I thought I'd let you choose). Nothing in particular....just what happens NEXT.

*loves* I can definitely do So Close six months out, if that's what you want. Actually, can I make it a year out? That would be great. :D

Would you be keen on doing something for One Night at the Paramour? Mikey centric, if possible? Mikey/Bob or Gee-Mikey or Frank-Mikey or Ray-Mikey or MCR-Mikey, you might get the picture lol Really, I love all combo just the same :-)

How about a datestamp for Not Moving Mountains? I would love to see what happened next. :D
posted by [identity profile] at 09:03pm on 27/01/2009
Oh, neat! Okay, sweetie! :D

The things I immediately thought of have already been asked for (would you believe I was thinking about So Close to My Heart and the t-ball season on the way home from work tonight?), but in the spirit of More is Better: So Close to My Heart, the first time J, J & J (or just J & J) hang out without the Rosenbaums present.
posted by [identity profile] at 09:09pm on 27/01/2009
Really? That's about the coolest thing anyone's ever said to me. *hugs* I can definitely do that one, hon -- thank you! :D
posted by [identity profile] at 08:30pm on 27/01/2009
So Close to My Heart, obviously. Um, I'd actually like to see something from Alona's pov. Can you do that? If not, then any time in the future. Though I see two requests for that already. I'll gladly just read theirs!
posted by [identity profile] at 09:10pm on 27/01/2009
Alona's a big part of the one-year out piece I have in mind, would that be okay? *hugs* :D

Whistlerverse; "trust me not to think (and not to sleep around)" Later that same night, maybe Steve and/or Chris's observations or thoughts on the boys and that 'who was kissing who' scene?
posted by [identity profile] at 09:10pm on 27/01/2009
oh, I know exactly what to do for this one. hee! thanks! :D

I'm gonna try and make you write Numb3rs, please *g* Something post G for Gamble, after they wake up, maybe? Just anything in that verse, really, would be awesome!

I was just about to request this *exact* same thing--Don and Charlie after G is for Gamble. :D

I am giggling so hard right now. *squishes*

(also I just cleaned my entire kitchen with many actual bleach type products and so now I can go read more H/D guilt free. :D)
posted by [identity profile] at 09:34pm on 27/01/2009
IT WAS YOUR IDEA. and a brilliant one. :D:D

(and also? I woke up at 5 and couldn't get back to sleep so I read new h/d for TWO HOURS. *desk*)
posted by [identity profile] at 08:55pm on 27/01/2009
Oh, WOW! Um, since people have already asked for 'So Close' and 'Open Mike Night', I'd love something from 'Numbered Days'... maybe a date a week later, maybe six months after the story?

Good luck with your book, sweetie!!!!
posted by [identity profile] at 09:34pm on 27/01/2009
I can definitely do that! Thanks! (and thanks -- omg, so nervous!) :D:D
posted by [identity profile] at 09:22pm on 27/01/2009
WHATEVER. I will just throw myself on the So Close thing. :D Although REALLY what I'm encouraging you to do is finish the damn sequel. :D I would totally accept datestamp that involves The Talk or other traumatizing parenting moments.
posted by [identity profile] at 09:43pm on 27/01/2009
If I could get them to actually DO something in the sequel, I would be happy to finish it. SO HAPPY. :D However, galvanizing parental moment I think I can handle. hee! Thanks, thanks!

Thanks! I'm writing an urban fantasy about nature elementals. I'm having way too much fun with it. :D
