words for september

  • Oct. 2nd, 2016 at 11:07 AM

This month I wrote 5.543 words, and over 3.000 of them were in the form of a Homestuck rant posted to a secret side-blog in which I argue that the conclusion to Dave's character arc was shit and that it might have been on purpose. What is my life.

Words for August

  • Sep. 2nd, 2016 at 10:18 PM

8974 words! For both my terrible, terrible Suff/Dualscar fic and my Sinful rewrite. I'd post an excerpt from the former but I feel that if I'm going to hell, I might as well go for a finished fic, so for the time being I'm keeping it under wraps. But Sinful is already out there in the form of an inexpertly planned comic with a truly amateurish handful of initial pages, so... I might as well publicize some of my unedited, unbeated prose.

Excerpt from the first chapter, in which an innkeeper takes in a wounded stranger )

Keeping up with my word counting

  • Aug. 11th, 2016 at 8:14 PM

I usually try to post my word count for the past month on tumblr (a habit i picked up from [personal profile] askerian) but... I keep forgetting to! Like on this month. I wrote a bunch last month but then I didn't post about it, and now it's the 11th and it would be just embarrassing to post about it now?

But then I remembered this account is here to be used, and noticed that for some reason the one previous semi-introductory post I had is gone, and all that's up on my journal is a reminder of the massive extended mental breakdown I suffered mid-april. I mean, my opinion on homestuck's ending hasn't changed, so I don't want to delete it, but the post is kind of an embarrassingly incoherent mess that I don't feel like revisiting, so I kind of want it off the top of my page. But what else do I have to post here? Numbers, I guess.

So I'm going to keep track of my monthly productivity here. That seems reasonable.

Latest month: December 2016 - 5.022 words (The Other Side, NSWE Origific)

November 2016 - 9489 words (Stillness of Hours, Goldenverse sidefic, Mob Psycho 100 untitled fic, NSWE Origific)
October 2016 - 0
September 2016 - 5543 words (Stillness of Hours and a long post on the homestuck ending)
August 2016 - 8974 words (Rhetorics of Conversion, Sinful)
July 2016 - 3,067 words (Stillness of Hours)

I was going to add past months for archiving purposes but then I found out I hadn't posted my word count for June or March or January either so, whoops?

...I don't even, man

  • Dec. 25th, 2010 at 3:18 AM

It's 3am and I'm really sleepy, but can't settle down because... well, I'll just put this down because... uh. For the ages, I guess?

During most of this last month:

Sister: Hey, I see you bought yourself those cheapo headphones.
Me: Yeah, well, sometimes I want to listen to music you don't like when you're around, and sometimes you're listening to music I don't like when I'm around. Also, I hate listening in on you and your boyfriend's constant bickering... except these headphones are total shit and I can hear you just fine even with them on.
Sister: Oooh... I guess you'd like some better headphones then?
Me: Sure I would.
---

Sister: Hey, I see you're really into those headphones.
Me: Yeah.
Sister: Yeah, but I see you're still listening to me through them... maybe some headphones with better isolating properties would be better for you?
Me: Totally.
---

Sister: Hm... so you still having trouble with them headphones.
Me: Shhhyeah.
Sister: Thoughtful hummmm....
---

Sister: Sorry, I guess all this noise is really bugging you.
Me: It is.
Sister: Maybe those headphones what look like Princess Leia's hairdo...
Me: Yes. Headphones. I'm flat out broke and new headphones would be awesome.
---

Sister: Merry Christmas! Here's your gift what I bought specially for you - a fancy bottle of limited edition Givenchy perfume!
Me: ........ *draws a blank*

It's... talk about conflicting signs. I mean, the perfume sure is nice, except I don't really like perfumes, and most perfumes smell obnoxious to me. This one is nice and, most important, very, very subtle, but it's still something I'm likely to use twice a year at most. A pair of headphones would have been way cheaper but, and this I really can't be nicer about, much better appreciated.

Yes, the expensive-ass perfume was an extremely underwhelming gift, and I feel terrible for feeling this way. Clearly she felt terrible about it as well, as someone (don't know who exactly) convinced her that giving me headphones would make me more withdrawn (I'm withdrawn because most everyone around me is shit to hang out with!), so she went with the perfume because... because I can't ever find perfumes which don't get up my nose, I guess. But still... those headphones... my life would be so much better with them. And she wouldn't be guilt-tripping me about being unnapreciative.

I dunno, I think she went to sleep thinking I absolutely hate and abhorr her present, when, really, it's more like I'm completely indifferent to it (which is worse?). She keeps telling me that I have to express myself, that I shouldn't act like I'm fine and happy when I'm not, but she seemed so upset about the perfume thing, I'm wondering if I should have acted like I liked the thing. :/

Happy Holidays

Things what I have done recently

  • Nov. 27th, 2010 at 6:27 PM

Things I have accomplished this past week:
  • Coloring 3 fully photoshopped webcomic pages and drawing 14 more for a side story, effectively giving me a buffer which'll last me up to January 15 (which I hope to spend creating a longer buffer, hopefully a chapter-long one).
  • Talking to my sister about her terrible habit of assuming people are being stupid, unfaithful and/or maliciously holding back information when they're unable to answer a question from her right away... WITHOUT turning it into a shouting match. It was a surprisingly civil conversation.
Things I have not accomplished this past week:
  • Catching up on NaNoWriMo. Currently stuck at 37.344 words. My webcomics took precedence. How many words of description would 17 comic pages translate as?
So, I dunno if I win or I fail here.

Hey there, world

  • Nov. 1st, 2010 at 1:31 PM

Suddenly, I notice it's been almost half a year since I last updated any of my journals. Erm... sorry? I have been following my flists, though. I'm sure you have seen me comment here and there. I just haven't sat down to write any going-ons. This post is to make sure visitors know I'm not dead.

A quick rundown of what I've done these last few months:in topics for easier reading )

As for the last month: Not in topics )

This is about all I remember being relevant from the latest months. 

Jul. 2nd, 2010

  • 10:31 AM

It's amazing how my mother managed to destroy my day before I even woke up just by leaving a note on my desk.

I can't remember the last time I felt this shitty.

oh my god shoes

  • Jun. 17th, 2010 at 5:52 PM

This week so far:

- Waxed my eyebrows and upper lip on Monday. On arriving home, my father took one look at my face and said he saw no difference. Way to make me feel pretty.

- Woke on on Tuesday with very, very strong pains on my right foot, that seemed to fade throughout the day. My foot hurt if I moved my pinky sideways; it hurt if I put my weight on it, and later in the day if I put my weight on my heel. But after half a day or so, the pain would be gone so long as I didn't put any weight on it, even if I were to stretch or flex the ankle and toes like I do in ballet class. If it were a ballet-related strain, it was one weird strain. I thought it was related to the cold (I've been experiencing all-new temperatures in this new house, I swear it didn't get this cold last year...), and since the pain was almost gone by night, I thought it would be a one-time-only occurrence. Until...

- Wednesday saw me up at 6am again because of the foot-ache, now more achey than ever. Mother drove me to an orthopedist, who diagnosed my foot pain as... tendonitis. On my ankle. I'm a sedentary artist who takes two weekly hours of ballet class just for the sake of not turning into a blob of fat, and yet, I get tendonitis not on my wrist, but on my foot? And the reason why is... because I abuse flat shoes. Flat flip-flopy havaianas at home, flat converses when going out. My last pair of sneakers kicked the bucket years ago and I haven't bothered to replace them since, despite thinking to myself "I could do with new sneakers" every now and again. Well, it's come to bite me in the ass. I still find it quite hilarious, though. 5 days of pills and hot compresses on my ankle, and anti-impact sneakers ASAP, was what I was told. Also, I should invest in footwear with heels, so long as they're no higher than 3cm. I hate heels.

- So today, after discussing with my mother when, where and how to buy new sneakers (I can't walk long distances, and mom is the kind of shopper who checks stores for the whole day only to buy diddly shit), she went to the doctor and I stayed at home. And then she came back home with a pair of Reeboks and a brand new bag! Well, that was kinda out of left field, but I needed a new bag, my old one was very beaten up and still had traces of rock that my sister would collect during her master's course in geology (she never used her own bags for rock-gathering). And now... I'm wearing the new sneakers, they're very comfy. And the new bag is pretty cool and... pretty. Pity my wallet doesn't fit any internal pocket, but my wallet is kind of a jumbo monster anyway.

Good week so far.

So much dust...

  • May. 17th, 2010 at 8:21 PM

Guess what? I'm the new computer analyst/troubleshooter in the house! And for free!

Yesterday I was volunteered to format and re-install Windows in an HD my father brought from his store - and today, he brought it back + its CPU because it was still not loading, and also another HD to re-format (a ridiculously old, brick-shaped one).

Turns out the HD I fixed yesterday didn't even need formatting - the motherboard was the root of the problem. It's kinda not recognizing HDs. The other, oldass HD actually managed to make my motherboard not load. Yes, it froze Asus Expressgate. You could hear the disk inside it trying and failing to turn. It's like the good old times, when I had to slap my CPU to make the fan turn!

Tinkering inside computers rose a lot of dust, and it's making a mess of my throat. I'm still kinda sick :/ Hope I don't get worse again.

Lawlryngitis and Failryngitis

  • May. 13th, 2010 at 3:36 PM

So, a while ago I had laryngitis. Well, now I have faryngitis. Yay?

yay fever

  • May. 12th, 2010 at 4:46 PM

Okay, the fever seems to have broken. It actually got to 39°C (102.2°F), and though it's only lowered to 38,5°C (101.3°F) so far, I'm starting to feel hot when before I was shivering under a thick eiderdown. I also feel okay with standing up and sitting at the comp. I'll take that as an improvement.

I've been coughing a lot, but there's barely any phlegm coming out. My eyes are heavy and a little achy. Also, I'm bored out of my mind, and my father's an ass.

What should I do to relieve the boredom? Try and draw more Steampunk Vikings? Try and write down the fairly angsty h/c HTTYD fanfic that's worming around in my mind (it involves sickness, and I'm getting some first-hand experience here!)? Try and watch my OMG ILLEGAL copy of HTTYD? Browse youtube for more japanese trailers? So many options, so little energy.

important message

  • May. 12th, 2010 at 10:22 AM

Okay, body, you gotta stop this.

First, it was the sore throat starting last night. Then the long sleepless hours of coughing. Then the waking up at 7am with more sore throat and achy muscles, and now the headache?

We were so awesome together, yesterday. Remember all that drawing we did? The Steampunk Vikings? I want to do more sketching. There's a webcomic to update. Stop crapping out on me.

No love,
Paula
