happy halloween & nanowrimo & stuff  
by lucy_locket

Good evening, beloved flisters! How are we all doing this evening? I've been ill all week but am feeling quite a bit better as of tonight and so shall ventre into work tomorrow for the first time in a week. But that is neither here nor there if I'm honest! Just some random chit-chat before I start with my other random ramblings. So really, how is everyone? Anyone out there celebrating Halloween/Samhain? Anyone trick-or-treating or planning on throwing eggs at those who are? ::grins at dancy_dreamer:: Tell me what's happening in the world of YOU. For serious, guys.

In the world of me, aside from being sick, there's not been a whole lot going. Which is made of loads of epic fail if I'm honest, but these things can't really be helped. Started again on my thestopwatch fic this evening and managed to work out a kink that's been annoying me since I finished reading the Torchwood novels (damn that Tosh not believing in ghosts!). The way I've got this story planned, there'll be around eight parts. The first of which is at about 3000words. I'll be really interested to find out just how big this story will have grown to by the time it's done! But I'm really excited about it and my plot and even my miffy-maybe-ending. Ya'll will keep prodding me about this, ys? It's due for submission in about three weeks time!!!

In other news, just realised/found out that it's NaNoWriMo time again. Now, no one panic, I am NOT planning on taking part this year XD I did however find out about two other forms of this event- one where you have to post a blog entry every day for the rest of November and one where you have to post a fic of a specific word count every day for a month. Now, again I'm not signing up for either of these, but I think it's a good idea and sure to get me back into a groove in regards to writing. Maybe ;D so I'm thinking I'll endeavour to combine the blog and fic thing so that I'm posting *something* everyday for the rest of November. Anyone want to jump aboard with this endeavour?

Also, if you leave prompts, pairings and fandoms I'll try and write drabbles/fics to them as the month goes on. Sound like a plan? Rock on. If you're not sure I'll write for a fandom just comment with it anyway and I'll let you know/give it a shot!

Now though, I'm going to curl up in bed and rewatch the Jekyll tv-series :D it seemes appropriately sinister for this evening, all things considered. That and it's completely fuelling my Moffat and Nesbitt love <33

Nope not trick or treating! Haven't even had anyone knocking on the door yet!!! What been happening here? Honestly, I've been ill, only just this week been over it! Work = epic pressure!!! Gotta learn a ton of stuff by middle of November, because we are losing our full timer and yeah I'm taking over half his hours and have to learn the open and deliveries and transfers and rentals and retail and....::tries to remember to breath::

Good luck on thestopwatch thing! I finally getting a fic out again, although I really need to write something lighter! XD

Erm....my mind is drawing a blank on prompts! Prompt = Cold, Shivery. Fandom = Torchwood. Do with that as you will.

Aren't you watching Dead Set??
Campaspe: Torchwood \\ Jack&Ianto; Blindfoldedcs_whitewolf on October 31st, 2008 09:42 pm (UTC)
Yeah, it's been really quiet with the trick-or-treaters my end too. Very strange!

I think all of us have been ill since the hub :S I think it's probably got something to do with the fact we were all so desperate to not be sick at the event itself, now it's catching up with us all! lol. but so not fun!

oh now, isn't that exciting? XD I'm sure you'll do fine learning everything :) plus extra hours means more money which is always good.

thanks! I'm really excited about this story! It's like a proper epic piece and lots of fun to write. It's been a while since I wrote team!fic, you know? XD

Ooo that sounds like a good prompt! Will add it to my list :)

And no, am not watching Dead Set. What's it about?
Joulez217joulez217 on October 31st, 2008 09:48 pm (UTC)
Maybe it's just too cold for anyone to be out! I mean I'm indoors and still in like four layers and sat next to the fire! XD

Aye i suppose there is that! We all doubly made sure not to be ill before or during the hub we did end up just relaxing too much afterwards and ending up ill!

It is exciting, and nerve wracking, to go from being just a normal CSR to praticlally half running the store in such a short space of time! Yeah I think I panic a lot when i think too much on it!! Oh yus I'm very much thinking of the money! XD hehe.

Oh thats good, it's always brilliant when you enjoy writing a fic!! Yup I know what you mean!

You're quite welcome, I figured with the way we are all feeling it would make for a good prompt or too.

Zombie Five parter, the only survivers are the big brother contestents. It's the last part tonight and I haven't found anyone who's been watching it! It's quite good, gory but good! XD
Campaspe: RP \\ Chris Ecclestoncs_whitewolf on October 31st, 2008 09:54 pm (UTC)
Ah see, zombies, that automatically gets a "not watching" from me. I hate zombies. XD and I hate big brother XD but I hope you're enjoying it anyway!

You'll be fine! It's alot of responsibility but I'm sure you'll manage it just perfectly :) when do you start it all properly like?
Joulez217: To Do Listjoulez217 on October 31st, 2008 10:00 pm (UTC)
Well half the big brother lot did get eaten if that makes it any better? I am, I generaly don't like this type of thing, but Dead Set really gripped me! i'm quite getting into my horro movies at the moment!

Well I've got my last supervised open next Thursday I think and then the week after I do one on my own!! So within the next two weeks I start on this properly!
Campaspe: HP \\ Severus; smileycs_whitewolf on November 1st, 2008 06:44 pm (UTC)
And in the end everybody dies/becomes zombies right? XD

Have you been watching something called "The Fringe" apparently its like a modern day x-files. Sounded pretty alright so might look into it.

You'll need to let us know how you're getting on then :D
Joulez217: To Do Listjoulez217 on November 1st, 2008 06:54 pm (UTC)
Pretty much yeah! Was quite gutted they did that actually, was half expecting someone to survive!

No I haven't with the time that it's on and my work I missed half of it!! I caught like five/ten mins of it the other day and it looked quite good!

Oh I will, I will! Well I'll try not to forget that I have a LJ and life online! Hehe! XD
Campaspe: Torchwood \\ 1.12 \\ Close to youcs_whitewolf on November 2nd, 2008 03:06 pm (UTC)
T'was a typical zombie movie. No one ever survives them. Which is why I don't like them. I'm all for wiping out the planet, but zombies are just such a boring way to go about it. lmao.

Joulez217joulez217 on November 2nd, 2008 03:26 pm (UTC)
Meh I suppose! But then i suppose the very first originaly Zombie movie woulda been quite good! XD Eh kinda like a bloke was saying last night that they all get to be the same, Earth gets destroyed, no one lives and they still come back with a seque/remake! XD

I had such a giggle/ego trip today wandering through Tesco. Staff had dressed up for Halloween and I saunter in in my usual clothes (and my huge lovely headphones :D) and I get more stares than the staff!

I had such a hard time trying not to giggle my head off. That's how I spent Halloween.
Campaspe: Torchwood \\ Jack; bondagecs_whitewolf on October 31st, 2008 09:43 pm (UTC)
you just know it's going to get done

Rock on! XD I love that you turned heads despite everyone else being dressed up ::high fives:: That's originality for you! hehe.
absinthefairy88absinthefairy88 on October 31st, 2008 09:46 pm (UTC)
Yay! *does happy dance*

I turn heads anyway in my town. I do stand out a fair bit. That's what my town gets for being so dull and plain and boring.
Campaspe: RP \\ JB&GDL; I do believe in faries!cs_whitewolf on October 31st, 2008 09:49 pm (UTC)
rubs hands with glee

Well good on you! No one like to follow the mould. I'd love to stand out but I live around the Glasgow area so yeah, that's never going to happen XD

do we get to see your Hub pics yet? X)
absinthefairy88absinthefairy88 on October 31st, 2008 10:01 pm (UTC)

My town is pretty small and crappy so it's to be expected.

I'm not that far from Glasgow actually (bout an hour or so down the road) but I know what you mean - hard to stand out up there. It's nice going up there and not being stared at like I am here.

Maybe. I was going to scan them in today but I wanted to go and mock the Tesco staff so I didn't
Campaspe: Harry Potter \\ Mischevious Weasleycs_whitewolf on November 1st, 2008 06:46 pm (UTC)
That's not so bad. I do live just outside the town myself (just easier to say Glasgow) and it takes about the same amount of time to get in. Where abouts are you? I'm in Hamilton.

I do like Glasgow for it's variety. You know you can go in there and no one is going to look at you weirdly XD

asdfghj. how about today? XD
absinthefairy88absinthefairy88 on November 2nd, 2008 12:34 am (UTC)
Sometimes it's okay and quite fun to be here but sometimes I just hate it. I'm in Lockerbie.

Glasgow is fun. A few of my friends are up there working/at uni but I don't get up to see them as much as I would like to :(

If I can get anywhere near the scanner I'll do it later today (since it's past midnight)

It's my Bro's birthday so I'm not allowed out trick or treating :( ::sadface:: on the other hand, I have read some fecking aesome Janto fic tonight LOL.

I have finally gotten over the worst of my cold and am having to get up at 2am to drive to Bangor uni open day tomo - kill me now ..seriously! :(

I personally think you should write Jack/Ianto/Rhys ;) or even some Randy ;)
Campaspe: Torchwood \\ Ianto&Gwen; Made in Walescs_whitewolf on October 31st, 2008 09:47 pm (UTC)
Aww, that sucks! On the other hand... care to share the good Janto? I haven't read any for what feels like *years* and am all deprived of it :S

That's good to here! It's so strange that we've all gotten sick since coming back from The Hub XD made of fail though.

I have no idea where Bangor is, but good luck with that! XD

Dude, you're on. Probably for both depending on how many prompts I get for this. Got any prompts to go with your pairings?
__♥..Jemz-y Baby..♥__jemzamia on November 1st, 2008 09:50 pm (UTC)
I went to Livvy's Halloween party. Which was good until Livvy's Dad got attacked at the end :( And my Ricky went to a different one so I missed him all night and got very drunk. NO HANGOVER THOUGH! XD

I might join in on this. I have been itching to fic lately just don't know what about :S

Campaspe: Dr Who \\ Ross Jenkins; red capcs_whitewolf on November 2nd, 2008 03:05 pm (UTC)
...attacked!? must've been on helluva party! :S eep. What'd you dress up as??

Oi! You realise you have to post something everyday in November for this right? Which started yesterday? XD better hurry and post double fic for the lapse ;) bwahaha.

__♥..Jemz-y Baby..♥__jemzamia on November 2nd, 2008 04:30 pm (UTC)
