estirose: A blank book (Kotoha transforms)

After a bout of problems in RL, I’m back on track. There’s a lot of talking in here, a bit of background, and a character that I’ve been swearing I’d get in finally gets in.

Here is part 2, which also happens to pretty much be chapter 2!

The NaNoWriMo forums can be a dangerous place. But sometimes helpful. Especially when it comes to plot moving.

ETA: Figures. First part of this chapter gets eaten, and then I have really screwy formatting problems for everywhere but, and then WordPress refuses to set it back to draft. So, sorry if you got to see the weird version!

This is the first part of my NaNoWrimo 2010 story. It contains spoilers for the end of Kiva. It’s being posted to Estilog/Dreamwidth, AO3, and FFN, so sorry if you see it more than once! I intended to post it yesterday, before Word decided to eat 1700 words of it. *headdesk*

Disclaimer: Some characters do belong to me, some don’t, and the world definitely doesn’t.

Notes: I’m basing this on broadcast canon (plus one or two cut scenes), so it won’t quite square with certain non-broadcast facts.

Summary: Taiga tries to introduce the idea of a new food source to the Fangire. Not everybody takes it well.

I’m not going to do these every day, but it was the first day of NaNoWriMo 2010, so here are some quick notes. The first 5000+ words will be posted in a day or so. These notes discuss the end of Kiva, so spoilers abound.

Well, I know what I’m doing for NaNoWriMo (after discovering writing the Labyrinth of Madness fic required way too much planning for the limited amount of time I have, but I want to write the story eventually).

It’s set post-Kiva, I plan for it to be canon (at least broadcast/filmed canon), and I’ll be posting it on Estilog/Dreamwidth, AO3, and It’ll feature canon cast, some OCs (one or two of which should be familiar to readers of my work), and probably a few JDrama/Toku cameos to lighten things up.

And I have finished NaNoWriMo. Yay! (Kercollapse) Now if I'd only managed a complete plot outline for novel #1. *sigh* But thanks to Meg Cabot's little pep talk, I did finish!

In the typo department, here's one that was a bit Tomorrow People-influenced:

"If you two promise to not break out in the car," Emery's grandmother said, "I'll leave you to your fun."

(The funny thing is, Emery can apport - teleport other things - and possibly teleport herself, so....)

Between the full novel and the aborted one, I managed about 65,000 words. Whew!

Now, I'll post the last bit of the novel to [ profile] esti_rise at some point in the next 24 hours. I also want to put together all of novel #2's posts (so far) and add them to a master post that can be added to the Queen's Gambit post on [ profile] estorise (I have plot bunnies complaining about wanting a rewrite on a fic I've got as a WIP).

I couldn't have done it without the web program "Write or Die". The novel might have been less cohesive because of it, but it got me through. ("Write or Die" is very useful for NaNo. The fic "Worn Down Blood" was also mostly written in "Write or Die".)

What character am I most like in X fandom meme )
estirose: A blank book (Where Was I Going? VV2)
Bleh. I lost about 600 words (of a major scene) in one of my NaNo novels due to an errant paste. *sigh* I guess I rewrite it after Dinner.

Parse the review? )

I lose a couple of hundred words in word count when I paste novel #2 for wordcount, and gain less than a hundred when I paste in novel #1. Very very weird. Same word processor, too.

Well, at least I wrote/posted another ~1200 words for #2.

I'm caught up once more on NaNo (for novel #1). Which is very good. Novel #2? Good question. I intend to write it after Yuletide. My problem is that my characters keep wanting to make it a short story instead of a novel. Oops ) I might write more of #2 tonight because I can't sleep yet (why would probably be TMI).

And, this morning, I discovered Kyou Kara Maou. *Facepalm* I like it, but it's sucking away my time. And I twittered fic.

ETA: The excerpt for novel #1 is here.
estirose: A blank book (Dangerous Otaku Noboru)
Thanks to a web thing called "Write or Die", I'm getting a lot more of NaNo in. Which is good, as I'm completely winging novel #1's plot now.

probably more of interest of me than anybody else )

I seem to have regained my NaNoWriMo muse.

estirose: A blank book (Holds On Nozomi)
I just... can't get into either of my novels at the length and speed I need to. With full-time work, classes and everything, I just have not been feeling it. So, I'm going to put a halt to them, to the most extent, and drop out of NaNo (though if I do write, I will update the word count).

Here's my plan:
1. I'll still write them. I just can't get motivated right now to write at the crashy speed NaNo requires at this point. I want to tell these stories. This just doesn't seem the time to do them. (Yes, full-time work, school, and various and sundry personal problems just have sapped me this year.) These characters do have stories to tell, I just can't manage the speed. (I'm not going to feel guilty about it, though.) I still reserve the right to suddenly pick up a ton of speed and catch up, though.

2. I have Yuletide. Normally, I'd start the fic in December (so, no pressure here), but this will give me time to review source material/check out a new fandom. I'm going to try pinch-hitting this year.

3. Instead of writing NaNo (unless I get inspired), I'm going to continue on with my fics. The latest Kiva arcs have gotten me really fic-inspired, and I have other stuff to do.
estirose: A blank book (Step Beyond)
I think I bit off more than I could chew with two novels this year. Oh well. Usually I'm motivated. This year I seem not to be. So, to keep up with NaNo, primary novel "Late Bloomer" will continue and if I get up enough, I'll write little bits and pieces for #2, "Song in a Painting". (Which is the one, incidentally, I asked for advice on.)

I've also signed up for Yuletide. I'll be making my DYW post public late Monday.

Anyway, on top of everything else, I have a plot bunny from Kiva. This has spoiler for 39-40 from the summaries I read, is very short, and doesn't realize that November is NaNo, dangit!)

Spoilers for Kiva 39 and 40 preview )
estirose: A blank book (Holds On Nozomi)
I'd ask this in the little details comm or the NaNo forums, but I figure I have enough people who know about this kind of thing. (Oh, and hi - frantically catching up my double NaNo this weekend!) Maybe someone can give me an idea what to do with the action sequence.

The details )
estirose: A blank book (He did it!)
Day 2's bit of novel #2 (Song in a Painting of the Crimson Moon) is up here. I'm pleased to announce that between the two novels, I am now over 10,000 words.

Yuletide signups are up. Yeah, the lack of PR is a bummer, but I chose 4 fandoms to be a recipient in and 8 to write in. Amazingly, only 3 of the fandoms I volunteered to write in are Japanese. Speaking of which, there are several Sentai series and a Kamen Rider one for the Toku inclined, and I think in several of them, the same person is the only one requesting and writing in the fandom so far. If Toku is not your thing, there are lots and lots and lots of fandoms out there to choose from.
