PSA  
Don't use prepositions twice because you're trying to sound fancy.

Correct: "To whom am I speaking?"
Maybe not technically correct but acceptable: "Who am I speaking to?"
Incorrect: "To whom am I speaking to?"

The point of shoving a preposition in at the front of a clause is to avoid ending the sentence (or clause) with a preposition. Don't still do that.

Can everyone do me a favour?

[community profile] zenderael_ooc is in need of new blood to keep the game alive, and word of mouth is the best way to attract new players. However, all the interested OC game RPers I know are already in the game!

I would greatly appreciate it if everyone on my flist could tell anybody they know who's interested in playing OCs to check out the game! It's been slow for a while but we're trying to pick things up now that we have a new mod and a new gameplan.

Just spread the word for me, okay? You will be my best friend ♥

What is your favorite Girl Scout cookie flavor?

View 581 Answers



FUCKIN' DO-SI-DOS YO.

Except they changed the name apparently and they are now the much less unique "peanut butter sandwich" cookies.

Last time I went grocery shopping, I walked out of the store to see a group of girl scouts setting up a table. I dropped my bags off in the car and walked back to buy three boxes of cookies before they even managed to finish setting up. When I said do-si-dos none of the younger girls knew what I was talking about. THIS IS A TRAVESTY Y'ALL.

Renaming aside, they are still fucking delicious.

Hello dear everyone! One day I will talk at length about all the cool ideas Snapple's class gave me for AC, but TODAY IS NOT THAT DAY.

Today is the day I talk about my not-so-secret supersecret project!

You see, a couple of years ago Snapple and I decided we really wanted to run an OC RP together. We were determined to make it happen, despite certain Snapples' incredibly busy schedules, because we knew it would be the Best Thing Ever.

Unfortunately, we couldn't come up with a premise.

Until I went to visit her in August, and she just blurted out THE MOST AMAZING PREMISE EVER while chillin' in a dog park with Logica and her corgi.

So, armed with a premise, we built a game.

Cut for TOTALLY SWEET TABLESCollapse )

So come check us out over at zenderael_ooc and ~*TELL ALL YOUR FRIENDS*~

HAH. Validated and everything, it'll flip over to "winner" as soon as tomorrow hits.

God I am SO DONE w/this!! I am not touching this thing again until after I have book 1's third draft finished, sob. (And even then I'll be starting over from page 1 and revising the shit out of everything I have here.)

I have 10.5k on day 3 omfg.

lmao I don't really expect to keep up this rate, but I do plan on writing at least 1,667 daily, so I will end the month with more than the target 50k, which is good, because the novel will probably clock in around 200k.

I am about to introduce one of the Valkyries too :O=-< that means lots of rambling dialogue to establish characterization!! That kind of thing is awesomely easy for me to write.

IN OTHER NEWS Snapple's class is apparently REALLY EXCITED to start reading my manuscript X) she sent me a text and said they're all really into the fact that Matt/Ravindra is a canon ship.

omg 6400 words on day 1.

I got all the way up to the big scene with Ljasame, too. \o/

I prooobably won't post chapters this time around, like I did for book one, because I just don't know what's going to end up happening with book two. After I do my third draft revisions, and figure out whether start of book two needs to be at the end of book one, I'll do a revision of book 2 and then post that. I already know most of what I've written is terrible and will likely get axed in the second draft, so I'd rather not put it up for folks to see so I can continue to keep my inner editor off instead of going "HATE IT, CAN'T SHOW IT" every time I write a scene I hate.

BUT ANYWAY.

I'm 6400 words in now! I am going to go to bed and then wake up and write EVEN MORE WORDS.

Name me one of my characters, and I'll tell you the inspiration(s) behind their initial conception, whether they be real-life people or fictional characters. Present, future & past are all fair game!

I haven't done a meme in ages, feels like. I also don't feel like listing out my characters, but you can find a list of my usernames here and go off of that.

I'm also extending this to book characters because some of them do have interesting stories!

If I finish my revisions in time (which let's be honest I totally will because I'm a bro and I'm swank like that)

I can do AC Book 2 for NaNo this year!!!!!!!!!!


SHIT YES.

(Progress report: I have 99K make that 91k left to go and am slightly ahead of schedule if you assume a chapter a day. I've also managed to get under 186k total wordcount.)
