I originally planned to bunch this with my previous post but it grew to long, so I split it… So, here in this post I’m going to explain all things I’m getting myself entangled with lately. So read on, if you dare… *evil laugh* Continue reading
Well, progress lately has been slow. I don’t have as much free time as I used to. And for some reason, it’s takes more thought and energy to compose chapters than it used to for me in the past. But it’s coming along slowly but surely. I’ve written a couple of chapters for “The Expatriate” and Ulqui/Ruki fic that’s turning into a Ichi/Ruki fic…. well… I don’t control inspiration XDDD. I also started on a Soul Eater fic entitled, “His Way of Thinking”
As for AoM, I’m re-writing a particular scene and it’s taking forever so I’d like to apologize to those who have been waiting for an update… I’m working on it, honest… I’m determined to not post anything on FFnet until I get AoM 14 done first. And that’s a promise…
Well I actually took these pics awhile ago, but I didn’t have the time to write up this post… XP
Wassup! Thought it’d be good, if I show you guys a bit of my workspace. Granted, it doesn’t really look at all of a professional level, but I’m sure this would be an interesting post for you guys to read through.
Here is some artwork I did for my fanfiction, “The Art of Manipulation” Unfortunately I haven’t illustrated any scenes from the fanfic, and none of them has been colored :
When I started reading/writing fanfiction, was so confuzzled and lost with all of the small abbviations they’d make. Diving into that universe was mostly a self-learning process. But it doesn’t necessarily have to be that way.
I’d thought it would be nice to quickly jot down all the funny looking terms used in fanfiction. I read/write anime fanfiction… but I believe it generally applies to all fanfics in general. Hope it proves helpful to whoever reads this… Also; be aware that a lot, if not all the terms below are not just used to categorize fanfics, but doujinshi (fan-comics), fan-art, AMV’s and anything produced in the anime fandom universe. But here, I’m just going to focus on how the terms apply to a fan-fiction story.
Yesterday was HOT! Oh my goodness gracious, I’m surprised to still move about, it’s incredible . Well, on my free time, I’ve been trying to work on my fanfictions but it’s coming out rather slow. Wrote only two and a half pages for a Ulqui/Ruki fic I have. I’ve been wrestling to find a meaningful purpose to drive the story along and it suddenly hit me yesterday. So I’m doing progress, thankfully. AoM fans want to kill me, I’m sure. I take forever for the updates… and there’s no reason to because the 14th chapter is finished and all I need to do is type it and edit it. I have internet now to help me so I have no excuse, they’d say. But I blame it on the heat. It slows me down like molasses.
I’ve been watching Soul Eater, just got ten or so eps to finish watching the series. Might end up reading the manga after I’m done. It’s a very good anime. Don’t be surprised if I write a post or two about it. I should. My blog is getting really lame these days. All I’ve been doing is working on the other sections. XP. Oh well. Need to work on interesting posts in general.
Another fic that I’ve been tackling extra hard is SoF (Spirit of Flight), It’s one of my personal favorites next to AoM. I’m doing a total revision to the second chapter and it’s taking forever. And if that’s not enough, I lost the document and so I’m working with a back up that hasn’t been updated. I’ve printed out a hard copy of sections of the original lost docuement, but it’s so mendokusei to work to try to remember and fit between what I have and what I have to re-write from scratch. That alone, just knocks the wind out of me. I want to get this chapter finished because I occupies my mind. I can’t seem to be able to work on anything else devoitedly because I’m always thinking about getting it done.
Another fic that’s been bugging me is “Garden Bird”. There’s a whole bunch of crap I have to type up. A chapter and some pages of a small pre-chapter section called the KGC (Konoha Gossip Corner). That part is so fun to write! *squeals*. I need to do a significant amount of editing in that one, so much so that I can’t start working on the next chapter of that fic, until I type it up and print it out… and that pisses the hell outta me… *fumes*
Lately my rough drafts have been very messy. They’re filled with so many revision errors, like switching sentences around and adding unique synonyms. Expanding scenes adding more descriptions… It gets me so upset. Why? Because, when you see that I update a chapter on any story, I’m usually at least, one chapter ahead. When I have chp 1 of a fic posted for the readers, I’m writing chap 3 or 4 at that moment. I rely heavily on my previous chapters to push the storyline along. So much so, that I often quote dialogue from the previous chapters to provide emphasis and also to remind the readers what happened at that previous moment, since so much goes on in a story. I don’t mind if I have tons of spelling, grammar, or punctuation errors, because that doesn’t directly affect the content of the story. I read over the drafts and can quickly proceed to writing the next chap. But when there’s revision errors, that stops me dead in my tracks. Because I need to switch sentences, add new material and that makes it extremely difficult to continue writing the next chappie. I have to type it (that’s when I revise it) and make the changes, print it out and THEN, I can keep working on the story.
It pisses me off. Pisses me off, so badly. I have to do that for SoF, Garden Bird and Sober State (Gintama fic). Three stories! That’s enough to drive me insane! Unfortunately, it’s not letting me concentrate too well on writing other chapters in general. I want to write a one-shot Neji/Hina because my two current Neji/Hina fics (SoF, Garden Bird) are both stuck in that rut, and I need to write a scene with them because my mind is screaming for it. (I’m such a dire-hard fan of that couple, it makes people sick XP). But I can’t. I have a block. And I know why. It’s because I need to stop beating around the bush, and start typing those shits already. Damn, I’m so lazy when it comes to typing! I love, love, LOVE to write the chapters—but when I have to type them up… it’s so medokusei… ugh man!
For those reading this post, thanks… at least you have an idea on what goes through the mind of a fellow writer. *laughs*
I’m trying so very hard to keep on track with my school work… but I’m burning so bad with the need to work on the fanfics. I’m currently trying to type everything that I’ve written for now.
And I’m looking to expand adding more blog pages under the “my fanfictions” sections… ahhh so much to do.. but I really like working on this stuff wahhhh… *gets shot*
I spent this weekend typing up the 13th chapter of AoM which is like 35 pages long front and back, I have seven pages left now *victory dance* I’ve yet to proofread and check for grammer issues… I’ve noticed that my writing style is too wordy. But when I cut it out make it more concise it looks so… naked?
As for this blog, there’s two more “Artistic Spotlight” posts I wanna do, which I think I’ll try to accomplish before the end of this week… >w< Uwah they’s so awesome… they really make me want to keep drawing… I keep imagning how my own art style would look like after much pracitce… uwah.. really can’t wait till I can reach that level… *sighs*
Well that’s all I got for now, just wanted to post something just keep this blog updated, I guess.
I’m posting by bulk aren’t I? Third post of the day last one I believe…
I’m in the process of revising some of my old fanfics that I have up on FFnet and I’m often tormented with the thought of typing up some other unfinished fics… but the thing is I’m worried that if I do so, then, I’ll have more on my plate…
So I’m wondering should I do it or not?
Fanfiction for those who don’t know what it is, it’s a literary work; chapter story, one-shot, poem, drabbles–that are based on works from a popular fandom, be it a movie (Pirates of the Caribbean) a TV show, (Friends, BONES, CSI) and/or an animated series (Simpsons, Naruto) Right now I feel the longest prevailing and the strongest fandom fanfiction writing that I have found is in anime hands-down. There’s even fiction works written for korean pop bands! (That amazed me…)
Surprisingly I feel more comfortable writing fanfiction than original works which is kinda sad, sorta of… ehhh… not so much. I find it more of a practice actually… I have some issues, I usually feel I’m not really good at writing so I spend more time scribbling drafts or just writing anime fanfiction.
Write now, I’m just writing for Bleach, Naruto, and Gintama… because I’m more inspired to write for them right now… and because they’re really popular… (I’d really love to write for others like Pandora Hearts and Final Fantasy though ^_^”)
I have a link to my fanfiction profile on the side bar under my links—>
If ya like to take a little look feel free. I enjoy writing drama, and romance is a biggy. I don’t like to make it too depressing and I like to put in some comedy here and there…
Fanfiction.net (FFnet) is an awesome place. I like the changes they did to it… because before it was a pain in the butt with all those crazy flamers and plenty of users that write pre-schoolish scribbles that my baby cousin compete with in terms of content and grammar…. no seriously… But now, it’s really improved and I really like it now.. It’s been about five months that I jumped into writing again because for a while I was really out of it.
