i raised my claws at the darkness and ripped the night apart

I finally picked The Rook back up. Working on finishing chapter 12 (it had a couple thousand words on it at the end of november) now. I hope to update it sometime before my birthday.

My birthday is December 27th btw. XD I'm going to be old. I don't want to be, but at least it's more stuff pour moi.

Happy holidays all~

too much of heaven a life and soul hellbound

Sooooo I wrote Pedestal's chapter 50 today. :D I'm slightly proud. I've only made it to that mark on two stories before... Granted, it usually has pretty short chapters, but still. Fifty chapters, woo!

I actually see myself finishing this, too. :D This is an amazing feat. OMG I'M SO EXCITED FOR IT. I'm so close to the "omfg crap" climaxy thing. XD;

And I want to take the Chekhov's Gun that is *spoiler here* and start firing. |D

i know that i can take no more it ain't no lie


I found out that the winners of NaNo can get proof copies of their fanfics.

I SO WOULD WANT TO PUBLISH DARK KNIGHT. Like, no one else knows how it is to write a 500k (yes, five hundred) word fanfiction with 99 chapters and epicness and ffffff. I'm trying very very hard not to use that code for Dark Knight...

I guess I'd also have to pay to get it published? XD;; This thing is all so confusing. Blah. I'll go work on The Rook again. (all of a sudden, it seems like I'm very, very close to finishing. whaaaaat. and I'm pretty sure the Rook and Ram are canon now.)

you can run you can hide but you can't escape my love

Would anyone bother buying The Rook? If so, for how much?

I can't sell it for under 7.50, because at that point I actually have to pay for the books. I break even at 7.50. And, let's face it, I would like a little profit for this if I'm bothering to publish...

So how much would a paperback book from an unnamed author sell for? (it'll be roughly 150-200 pages, if all goes as planned)

Also, what should I do about the internet copy of The Rook that's available on fictionpress right now? Should I just not finish it? Or should I delete it? Either seems like a pretty bitch move... I'm going to be editing The Rook and maybe adding/deleting some scenes, so it's not like anyone would be paying for what's free on the internet... But still. ARGH I SHOULD NOT HAVE POSTED IT DX Even if I enjoy the reviews and stuff.

Hmm hmm hmm. Any input, anyone? Plz?

hottie with that tomb raider body

So I'm writing a literary analysis of The Yellow Wall-Paper for my comp class, and I find myself able to use the phrase "unnamed narrator".

It's all I can do not to type "nameless narrator". MLIA. :D

Also, I'm just chilling, waiting for the I Wrote A Novel, Now What? page to go up. I'll work on stuff later.
