Hrmm... guess that'll be my next project when I get distracted from writing/finally caught up!

In the meantime, I have an awesome new NaNo desktop background! :D It features the lovely Starscream and has encouraging comments on every day! I'm ridiculously happy about it.

Still have about 5 pages worth of handwritten stuff to type up. I'm figuring that's about another 2000 words in all to type yet. Oh, and I have two voice recordings I made the other night for one chapter. Need to get to those soon too. At least I'm writing at around 4-5 pages a day to keep up with my daily word count goal! I just need to keep on top of typing it now. XD

Hmm, I feel like I was going to write something mildly entertaining here... whoops?

Anywho, I'll be on sporadic internet again for the rest of the week. I've got family coming, my mom has surgery I need to drive her out of town for, I'm behind on my homework, and I've got almost double hours at work this week!

and for real guys, this green bottle fly thing beside me is about to make me have a panic attack

After scouring the new rules of NaNoWriMo this year (which have gotten stricter since I first joined and caused me some concern for my novel at first), I think I have finally settled on my idea for the month.
Since I still don't have an actual original fiction novel idea in plot, I'm following the lovely lead of [personal profile] sharpest_asp and writing multiple stories. Mine will be an anthology of Transformers fanfiction ideas I've had sitting in the wings for a little while now. And yes, I did verify the rules to make sure I'm still allowed to validate my win at the end of the month (willing I actually finish these stories).

c/p from the NaNo site (just in case anyone else was wondering):
I'm writing fanfiction. Am I a rebel?

Not even a little. The only rule we have for content is that it must be fiction. Beyond that...

I'm writing a collection of short stories. Am I a rebel?

Probably not. There's no actual rule on this one. We define a novel as "a lengthy work of fiction." However, we the moderators feel that since you find short story collections on the shelves alongside longer works of fiction, if they're related, they count. They need to have some common theme, or linking thread that weaves them together that makes them a single, "lengthy work of fiction."

I can easily link two of them, "Faith" and "Burn Me Alive", since I count Starscream setting other mechs on fire as a linking thread (and the fire is actually essential to each plot!).
"Can't Afford to Care" and "Deadlocked" would be a bit harder to link in if I needed to write them to add to word count, but I'm sure if I need to, I'll just set some mech on fire in each of those as well and make it a collection about mechs getting set on fire and advancing the plot.'d actually be pretty easy to set somemech on fire in each of them...

*headdesk* or I can always say that since they're in the same fandom and they're each rare pairs, that's a good enough link to count. even though I kinda wanna set Deadlock on fire now

Bit late on getting my NaNo post up this year, but whatev' *twirls*

I still don't have a plot ready for when November rolls around! I've still got a week, but... a week. 6 days. It seems like such a tiny amount. Last year I had my plan in August. And the year before that I was itching to start writing by now. So not having a plot yet is a little... disconcerting.
I'm currently waffling around a few ideas for either
a) rewriting my currently semi-epic level TF fic as an original story involving hive minds, the pressure of stress, and the morality of consensual agreement under mental duress
b) break down and write the fanfic I planned out in July for my crack!OTP in TF
c) new original fic involving a broken hive mind, children raised as poison testers, assassins, and royal feuds
d) adding more the epic level, multi-universe, story that was my 09 win
e) make something else new up

I'm leaning strongly to hive minds this year. :/ I blame my current WIP for having First Aid in it. Silly gestalts. Wanting into everything.
I kinda wanna bounce some more ideas off someone to try and get into a new novel mindset. I'm a bit gutter stuck in the TF short story area atm. And it's a rather deep gutter full of narrow-minded plunnies, song lyrics, and more prompts then I think I could write.

(( Fellow Wrimos: When the NaNo buddies system finally reintegrates itself back into the new servers, feel free to add me! I'm Naoi on there too! ))

In good news though, thanks to an unfortunate bit of wank that got me pissed the other night, I began writing a reactionary fiction piece that actually got me somewhat over the writer's block I'd been having for a few days! :D Just goes to show, when you think you can't write anything, just sit and stab something out onto paper, and magically words will begin to appear that you might like. Case in point:
Sometimes Drift thought he was insane. That he was imagining that almost awkward pulsing. Then it would happen again, and he would wonder how he could have ever doubted that it was there.

The entire thing is about 500 words long, and miiight stretch to 2k if I keep rolling with it and all goes well. If not, eh, it served it's purpose, and the meta that inspired it is still there.

I've also gotten into a very stressful situation at work right now, and I'm planning on meeting with the store manager tomorrow to try and get the majority of it sorted out. Some of what's been happening these past few weeks is somewhat, or really, is, morally unethical. And it's a load of bull. Hopefully all turns out well. *crosses fingers*
