since school is out, i've had time to enter some icon contests here on LJ.

for hbic20in20, I chose Farscape's Aeryn. entry here.

for nostalgia20in20 (which is brand new and allows lots of options), I chose seaQuest's series premiere. entry here.

so guess what just landed in my school inbox about an hour ago?

about fraking time!

though, at least it was positive. the only thing negative* was to point out the parts that were not yet done (which are being worked on).

so now at least I can get working on that. FINALLY.

now the IT people need to get off their asses and fix the fucking Moodle already.

* - since the assignment was to submit a rough draft of the project, i don't consider it negative feedback for her to say "the following elements are missing and must be incorporated into the final draft".
21st-Apr-2014 11:51 am - writers' resource - RealTimeBoard
shiny [Christmas squee/randomness]
so for all my fellow writers....i ran across the mention of this site on tumblr last night:


it's an endless virtual whiteboard. there are templates for various designs (charts of all kinds) or you can make a blank board and put stuff on it. and by stuff, you're not just limited to text. you can put photos, videos, post-its and more. oh, and not just one board. you can make multiple boards.

working on a project with someone else? want your beta reader to look at your outline? you can invite them to the specific board and both use the board together.

i already have a board set up for my current fic project and I set up another for the NaNo monster and put the working timeline onto it. and that is just for starters. i can see so many things i'll be able to do now that i have this.

tl, dr: where has this site been all my life?? :P

Dear LJ [Bashir geeky/writing/busy]
snagged from zeugma:

Put a number in the comments and I’ll answer accordingly. (hell, pick two, if you like XD)

The mission for those of us who answer the questions, should we accept it, is to stay positive about our writing and ourselves, but to also be fair about our shortcomings

1. Of the fic you’ve written, of which are you most proud?
2. Favourite tense
3. Favourite POV
4. What are some themes you love writing about?
5. What inspires you to write?
6. Thoughts on critique
7. Create a character on the spot... NOW! [only crossing out this question because, with school going on, this question might derail things if my muse likes my on the spot inspiration and suddenly wants to go on a plotting bender. i'll come back to it some day!]
8. Is there a character you love writing for the most? The least? Why?
9. A passage from a WIP
10. What are your strengths in writing?
11. What are your weaknesses in writing?
12. Anything else that you want to know... (otherwise known as Fill in the Blank)

i want a new layout for here. or at least a new header.

problem is, i'm not sure how to set it up. Bel gave me my beautiful Odo/Kira header i've been using for years and i think she set up the coding too. i wouldn't even know how to set up a new layout. though i suppose i could just keep the layout and try to make a new header.

i'd kinda also like to do a new layout period on dracosdreamer as i'm a little bored with the autumn leaves. but the same problem applies. :P

oh and it seems that Local Paper took my pointed comment in their direction to heart when i wrote my letter to the editor project for communications class. the rescue did an event yesterday at our local Senior Citizen's Center. smack on the front page of today's paper: an article and a photo of our special needs kitty Diamond.

under a brighter sky [lyrics default]
let's hope you are better than 2013 for everyone.

at least my 2013 ended on a semi-high note with my 4.0 for the semester. coulda done without the blown tire four days before Christmas tho. just thankful i have an awesome dad who has connections.

and i am hauling my happy ass to bed. must get some sleep before i go to the parents' house for the annual All the Bowl Games Are Belong To Us fest . (aka what i call the eat/watch football/scream at TV "party": crackers, cheeses, oysters/kippers/clams, mustards, olives, weird stuff dad and his best friend John eat while mom and i go "uh no", and crab salad for the Rose Bowl.)
21st-Dec-2013 08:48 pm - so...like....OMG XD

for those not on facebook....

i was shocked, lol. tho i will say the only class i was "concerned" abt was medical terminology....and that is because that was the class with the teacher who took for-fraking-ever to grade anything, so i never knew how i was doing other than the weekly quizzes!
