acresofhope: (kira power up)
Wow, I just had the best sleep I've had in a while. For the past week or so I've been waking up every few hours, but this time I slept straight through the night. THE NIGHT! As in I didn't do the vampire thing I usually do. I have seen the sun and it is bright! I wonder if I'll catch fire when I go out.

In addition to the last RP I mentioned, I also joined Angel Grove, a pan-fandom RP set in the Power Rangers universe, post-Zordon. I grabbed up Chloe Sullivan, because it's so hard to find an RP without her. I also have Kira Ford, who I love. She's a little reminiscent of Kimberly from the first few seasons, which I guess is the reason for the fanon of them being related, but she's still very much her own character. She's anything but a valley girl, except for this one time with a meteor rock (ZING!), but I think they have the same kind of spirit.

Anyway, if there's a character you like who seems to be always taken, think about joining Angel Grove. Yes, I know, Power Rangers, but I doubt it's going to be at all like the shows.

On a side note...I'm not sure how much I like the Chloe in the Destination: Eternity RP. It's probably just because I'm anal about capitalization and all that, but we haven't gotten to the third person part yet. Still, I think Chloe would use proper capitalization if she were commenting on something like a blog or forum. It's her nature as a writer, and I say that as a writer myself.

I've found that I really like roleplaying and writing Lana. Yes, I know, "Lanaughgrrbarf," but I really do. And everybody has told me how much they like my Lana. Actually, they like my interpretation of all my characters. I think other than the comments about Lana, the best compliment I've had is how much they like my Clark, and "it's so hard to find a good one!"

Anyway, speaking of Lana, I have some writing to work on. Comment at will.

Well, isn't that just how I like my peas: frozen into large clumps of greeness.

Yes, ignore my random beef with my veggies, pun totally intended.

I really wish I was better in the illustration department. I have this nifty idea for an original story, one that I would only do for fun and wouldn't try to sell. The only thing is it involves anthropomorphic animals, also known as bipedal animals or furries, so pictures of actors and actresses don't do it for graphics. I got the idea months ago after watching Chicken Little. In fact, I'm watching it again now, trying to get a handle on what I'd orginally invisioned. Anyway, I think I've come up with the character would would be at the center, but I'm trying to think of what kind of look a site could have without me being able to draw something of relation. It stumps me.

I deleted all my fanfiction challege communities on LJ, with the exception of the ones I mod. I'm not doing that on IJ because I have very little problems from IJers. I question if I should finish The Reefside Diaries. I probably will, because there are a few people interested, but I'll probably only post it under flock.

Blah blah, yap yap, dribble dribble dribble. Goodnight.

So I mentioned [ profile] circulartime had inspired me to start working on a totally original story, so I have been. Most of the elements I had figured out a long time ago, but some have changed. For instance, I roleplay a lot with [ profile] ferretgirl_1124 a lot and one of her characters (Alex) begged me not to have my character (Nendyé) involved romantically. Yes, I said the character begged me. We're weird like that. Alex and Nen are kind of...married with children. Yeah, only in roleplay world, but Alex was like "Asdfjkl;&@!" so I tweeked the story. Anway, here's a graphic that gives a preview. It's large, so be warned.

[ profile] circulartime has been writing this amazing original story called Guardian and I decided since the fanficing hasn't been going well for me I might try to actually work with the ideas I have for originals. Thing is I, like her, like to have some visual representation. She has Kristin Kreuk and Jared Padalecki...and I got nothin'.

Help please? )

All these ideas for stories, and yet, I have no real inspiration. I blame Clayfrakes, the clay monster of my dreams, played by Jonathan Frakes. Therefore, Clayfrakes. I will eventually turn him into a meteor freak, whenever I get past the block. Maybe I should try something totally different, like some icons. I was meaning to make some more Chlooge and Lanapedia icons a few episodes ago, but I apparently forgot about them and the ideas I had about them. So I guess I'll have to suffer through some bad Smallville to get some good ideas. After I have enough, I might offer them up to the Two of Us Chlark forum.

Or I might write poetry. I haven't done that in a while.

Nightmare on the Kent Farm made [ profile] sv_ledger.

You guys have no idea how happy this makes me, especially since I didn't personally recommend it to them. Getting a little essay or a giant list of ships listed there is as easy as writing a horrible Smallville episode pie, but an actual story...

Breathe, must remember to breathe...

Okay, so I need to get myself my own laptop. I've been using my brother's, and boy what a difference it makes. I hate Windows Vista, but I love being able to take this to whatever room I need. For some reason, sitting at that one desk just drains all the creativity right out of me. Yesterday I actually got some writing done, which his hard to do at that dumb desk. Maybe now that I can focus I'll actually be able to finish all the writing tables I've accumulated.

I'm starting to feel must better since I started eating healthier, even though I haven't made that many changes. My headaches are getting less frequent, among other things. Did I mention in addition to watching my sodium intake alltogether, I've also been reading labels and avoiding MSG? I'm shocked at how many products have that stuff in it. There's a lot of Campbell's soup just sitting around because I refuse to eat it. If anybody I know nags because I'm "wasting food", I'll just have to explain to them that the food in question is not fit to be consumed.

To be honest, I don't have a lot to say about the new episode of Smallville, except that it was wonderful to see Pete. I tell ya...I dream about guys like that. I want me a Pete Ross. And after seeing the interaction between him and Chloe, I should really add that to my long list of pairings I like.

Okay, so I lied a little, without meaning to. I'm saying more. )

Now that the spoilers are out of the way, just a mention that I changed my icons and layout. Nothing too interesting, except this is the first time in a while that I don't have a Chloe icon in the mix. Five of them are fandom related (Phoebe [Charmed], Lex/Lana [Smallville], Beast Boy/Terra [Teen Titans], Conner/Kira [Power Rangers Dino Thunder] and Angel [Angel: The Series]). The other is spiritual. I really like it and I'm glad I made it, however long ago that was.

Now, to actually get some writing done.

Wednesday is my weigh in day, and I report that I've lost all of half a pound. Looking at the reports on FitDay, I can see why I lost so little. I ate about 1,000 calories more than I burned one day last week, and I haven't cut that many this week. I'm not too depressed about it. I might not reach my goal for April (I'd have to lose about 2.4 lbs every week), but I think I could still get a shiny one up front by then. I'm still eating too much sodium, but my intake has dropped 1,000 mg, so that's still good. If I can continue that trend for the next few weeks I'll be good. I also opted for an olive oil salad dressing instead of Caesar, and I'm making sure I only use a serving of it instead of just dumping it on. Next step for me: adding a good source of potassium to my diet. (In case you haven't figured it out, I'm trying to lower my blood pressure.) After that is a little bit of exercise. I'm taking it slow because when I've tried to make big changes, it does work. I thought maybe if I took little steps it would be easier.

I started another writing table, this one at 12days, my claim being the Book of Shadows from Charmed, prompt table 3b Spring. I think that'll be fun. I might make another claim there, when I figure out what to claim. I'll probably be making another claim somewhere, for Teen Titans probably. I also considered trying a hand at original fiction, though I wouldn't know where to start. I know I like fantasy/supernatural type stuff, but I'm afraid I'm going to copy too much of what I've seen on TV. Any ideas/suggestions?

I just joined more writing communities. Insanity, thy name is Elizabeth.

I never realized how unhealthy my diet is until now. I took an assessment at The World's Healthiest Foods, and if nutrients were hair, I'd be a naked mole rat. I exaggerate slightly, but still. At least half of them listed depression as a sign of deficiency. Not that I expect nutrition to solve all my problems, but it would help. I am now officially watch my calories and sodium intake. I'm going to start planning my meals, too.

Going to church tomorrow. Forcing myself to, actually. I can't keep isolating myself, even if it's what I feel like doing. It's just not healthy.

Sometimes I hate being a woman. My brain isn't working well right now. Being leaky bad.

Okay, just in case [ profile] strangevisitor7 is wondering, yes I have been working on the next part of Five Families Clark Never Had. I just write slow. I envy people who can come up with a good story in a short amount of time. Fiction is really hard for me. I'm much better at poetry and commentary. I don't know that my stuff is very good, but I enjoy it. It just takes a lot more time for me.

Anyway, I haven't thought of enough families for my fic. Suggestions?

not enough

There's just not enough hours in the day. Or maybe I just need to sleep less.

Anyway, between trying to work on my fanfiction claims, reading other fanfiction and trying to get off my butt and get ready for college (not an easy task where I'm concerned), not much time left for anything else. I need to get out, or at least get away from my computer. This thing is my life.

And that sounded so pathetic.

So many plot bunnies...too many plot bunnies...make them stop! This is the reason I have a dislike and even fear real bunnies. I think the association has worked itself into my subconscious or something. It's probably also the reason I can never seem to get anything written. All the bunnies are begging for my attention all at once. Gah!

I'm trying to come up with some ideas for my [ profile] 10_letters claim of Chloe Sullivan, but I'm coming up with nothing. Like always. It really gets on my nerves when my imagination is dead. If anyone has any ideas, let me know. My prompts are here with my crazy list of tables.

not again

Writers block. I'm told it doesn't actually exist, but for some imaginary ailment, I seem to come down with it a lot. I'm hoping it has more to do with my insomnia than anything else. By the way, if anyone says that doesn't exist, Lex Luthor won't be the only one hiding bodies in a crypt. I just hope the sandman visits me tonight.
