3-31-05 Last day of March and

I worked on the Noir story last night and will do more today! It's really coming together and I'm down to the last few pages. It's funny, I know in general what's supposed to happen, but then while I'm writing, suddenly my character will do something else, just like she's got a mind of her own! (Like Mirielle and that dangerous spatula). So I have to go with it, and the story just gets to be a little longer.
I never have to sit and "think" of a story idea; if anything, I feel more just like a scribe writing it all down as it happens. I wonder if anyone else feels that way.

Monday Musings

3-28-05: For those reading my Noir fic, I promise to finish it this week! I know how it all ends, I just have to discipline myself to finish it. I have great admiration for writers; indeed, I find it very difficult to sit there, concentrating and typing, for any great length of time.

As for the subject of writing itself: There is a wonderful book, written long ago, that I find inspirational for writing. It's called If You Want To Write by Brenda Ueland. Actually, it's inspirational for far more than writing, which is why it is so wonderful. I would advise this book to anyone who wants to write, or anyone who wants to live their life to the fullest, for that matter.

On another note, I am going to be installing and trying some new video editing software this week. If all goes well, I will then use it for the Kannazuki AMV.

3-26-05: Well I'm not going to be dispersing any mood emoticons or posting any food recipes here, but I will keep those interested updated as to what's in the works for the site.

On that note, I started working on the KnM AMV yesterday. Today, unfortunately, my PC crashed and I lost most of the work. I took it as a sign that I should do something else for a bit. Disregarding the raws, I decided to order the HK DVD off E-Bay, and will resume work on the AMV again in a week or so when it gets here. In the meantime, I'll add more areas to this site and try to straighten out the closet known as the "stuff" section. It would be nice if people had something to do besides twiddle their thumbs while waiting for the AMV's to download. :)

Long-term, I have lots of AMV's I want to do; I have some parodies I'd like to make and once I learn Macromedia Flash, get ready for the insanity of The Pink Oink Box. It's something you will just have to see for yourself. In the meantime, I will also finish up the fanfics I've started. I'd like to thank everyone for being so patient, this really just started as a lark but the responses I've gotten have been so positive and encouraging, it makes me want to do more. Whether that's a good thing or not remains to be seen, lol.
