    Thanks, Lisa

    Oh god...Captain Planet, why.

    I never watched Star Trek. Stargate, sure, but no Star Trek.

    I used to have a weird thing about watching Star Trek when I was a kid. I can't remember any of it, though.

    Whichever is the old Star Trek movie with the whales, I like that one. Especially the bit where Scotty is trying to use an old fashioned computer. "Oh, a keyboard. How quaint."

    Apart from the evil woman villain tempting the heroic men with her evil womanly wiles.
    There always seems to be one of those.

    And then I met a man called the Doctor. A man who could change his face. And he took me away from home in his magical machine. He showed me the whole of time and space. I thought it would never end.

    I envy your productiveness.

    There is no way I'm going to write just over 20K in two weeks, even with all nighters.

    Don't get me STARTED on First Contact's fucking of the Borg.

    Honestly, I wouldn't be nearly this productive if I didn't have two people who are absolutely in love with Weeping who keep ordering me to write more.

    Lisa, they're just two friends of mine that I knew were into the sort of fiction I write, so I threw it at them one day and they've been demanding ever since. Go find a few buddies to do that for you--it can seriously help!

    I love Star Trek. The original series, though. Spock.

    Okay, I'll see what happens when I post the query letter in QLH and on here with future projects.

    ETA: I think Wrock is helping with motivation, though.

    I think TRL's the kind of book that has to be written over months or even years. It's really tough to write all of a sudden. I think I'm going to get some work done on a different project.

    Instead of writing (gotta get over that nausea) I am now organizing my 38 gigs of music to figure out how many songs I have. Do I want to know? The answer is probably not.

    At the moment, I have 2105 songs on my iTunes. And I have films, a TV show and podcasts.

    I still want new music. *loves music and iTunes*

    I'm pretty sure I've got at least 9,000 songs. But we'll see when I'm finished with all the organization--granted, that could take a few days.

    ETA: I hate it when keys stick :/

    There is a tiny, baby, hint of a possibility of an SNI crawling up to me. It's a totally superficial plot, too, unless...

    Damn. No, I think I'll just go with the superficial plot.

    Well, I don't know.

    It's like... The Clique meets Artemis Fowl.

    Man, that's even weirder than I thought it would be.

    That sounds....strangely compelling.

    And I haven't. Why haven't I? I don't even know. I keep thinking about it, too, and meaning to get to it, and then just not. I should really do that. Especially since I was enjoying what I'd read of it.
