Working Hard...

Well then.

As you  know, I've been writing. Writing, writing, writing. You don't get to do an awful lot of other things when you're writing. Well, sometimes you do, but not when you have deadlines like these. The short stories I'm writing, all of them, need to be delivered by Wednesday. The first draft of Book Nine needs to be delivered by the middle of next month.

To say I am a tad busy would be something of an understatement.

Of course, all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy, and why would Jack want to be a dull boy? I've been doing things. Reading things. Watching things.

Take this evening, for instance. This evening I watched the last Sherlock of the current season. The first episode of the season was oddly character-driven, at the expense of the central mystery, but I didn't mind that in the least. The second episode, the wedding episode, was hilariously sublime. And the final episode, having Sherlock face off against a truly unique villain... well. It was just wonderful stuff.

And I've been reading. Stephen King, mostly. Going over his early works. His classics. When I was a kid, I went straight from The Three Investigators and the Hardy Boys to Stephen King and these wonderfully violent and detailed Gold Eagle books like The Executioner and Able Team and Phoenix Force, books that gave you diagrams of the weapons they used at the back of the book. Basically, I graduated from kids books to horror and action. And after a few Stephen King books like Cujo (the first King book I can remember reading) I went on to James Herbert and Shaun Hutson — overtly violent and brilliantly horrific.

And now, after all this time, I'm going back to Stephen King, and loving it all.

Recommendations? Read The Stand. Then read It. Two MASSIVE books. You won't be sorry.

So these things have been my break from the writing. Christmas, for me, was mostly about the short stories. But there was one story...

It started off fine. Exactly as I planned. It would be a new kind of story, something I hadn't really tried before. It would probably end up as one of the longer stories of the collection, though, but not by much.

I thought.

I have just finished it. Half an hour ago, I finished it. At the moment, before edits, it is over 20,000 words long. That's twice as long as The End of the World. So you'll be reading through Armageddon-Outta-Here (haw!), and hopefully enjoying the stories, and then you'll get to this brand new novella, a good, solid chunky story, and I think this story alone will make the collection worth the money.

I think. I hope. Right now I'm far too tired to form a coherent opinion. All I know is, I've been working hard. And it's not over yet.

We miss you Derek *sends Zaffy hugs*

Hmm omg if I'm all by myself I shall take this oppurtunity to happily read chapter 22 of LSODM and go read 51 and devise ways to freak on Derek.

Oooh do we invite him or not.....hmm he isn't deserving. Not after LSODM. Hmph. Ruined Zavel. Zaffy not pleased.

I am most displeased.

Hear me out: I die, Saracen dies or China lives or all 3 Zaffy uses her bundle of dynamite

Noelle said...

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

Hailo Snow

*giggles and starts trying to explode Derek*

Its been 20min so I actually doubt he realizes I'm exploding him. Maybe he doesn't like Blogland....

Snow said...

:O

*tackles zaf* I AM NOW 14 BECAUSE, AND I STILL DONT BELIEVE THIS, IT WAS MY BIRTHDAY ON SATURDAY

Unknown said...

Hello. I believe I only have a few moments, but I wish to tell Derek how rude he was to send Darquesse on me.

Very rude.

Snow said...

AND I ALREADY TOLD YOU, DIDNT I?!

Amethyst Temerity said...

happy birthday!

Snow said...

XD

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

RAVEL!!!!

Unknown said...

Yes, Zafira? I probably have a short amount of time to chat.

Hello those who are here.

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

Erskine I miss you! Why are you here though? Derek has no heart he has a bottomless pit

Snow said...

*total facepalm moment*

Unknown said...

Hello, Snow.

Snow said...

Hmm

Unknown said...

Snow said...

Nothingggg

Rae Hudson said...

Hey guys! Hey Derek!
Dude, that's some seriously awesome work on AOH! I can't wait to read it.
So, what are all my fellow minions up to?

Unknown said...

Hello there.

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

Hai

Snow said...

*sits in shadow's and sips tea*

Rae Hudson said...

Personally, I've been doing a ton of writing too. I decided to re-write my first novel for like the millionth time, and in two months, I've managed to write 48,000 words. ^_^

Noelle said...

Hullo!

Administrator Kestrel LeStarre-Sparrowhawk The Celestial said...

HELLO FIRST POST OF 2014!

Jeeze, I haven't been this early in FOREVER.

ADRA, THANKS FOR SAYING HI FOR ME!

*not here, just couldn't pass up the chance to be this high up*

Noelle said...

Yeah Kessie :P

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

Hmm cool

Noelle said...

I can't tell if that was Zaf as Ravel or...

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

Not me.

Noelle said...

I read back again- and I guessed not. If you, I think, he woul have stayed...

Hm.

Snow said...

*popsout kf the shadows, still drinking tea* adra! I got a lovely mint and lavender infusion tea. I dont know why I told you that

Noelle said...

Because we were talking about peppermint!

But lavender? I haven't tried that before..

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

Yeah he left I mean he may be here like Sir or Ari but yeah he would have stayed I'd have roleplayed, maybe he was actually looking for Derek. And also if i was him i'd have said Zaf not Zafira....

So! How many votes do I have for dying in Book 9?

Noelle said...

Not for, but everyone's going to die, regardless :P

That is, if we're even in it, you know?

Snow said...

You? Die? Ne- oh, who am I kidding? I would laugh my head off if you died in book nine. Sorry.

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

Did I mention my friends irl are taking bets to see if I die in Book 9? I may have a chance to be mentioned if Nikki becomes an Elder. I don't care either way. To me it's a plus o be mentioned with her as she's epic but it's no biggie to me if I'm not. Ahem. I did get Vex alone which I can see Em glaring for

Noelle said...

Everyone would be

Vex is such a babe.

I mean

REALLY

A BABE

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

I know....I was drooling when I read my chapter. Omg...He's gorgeous....

*blushes*

Ravel is my ultimate. Saracen wouldn't be the type he's to physical. Well maybe...and I have a shot with Ravel! You saw what company he keeps a Necromancer is totes ok

Snow said...

*shakes head in shame* I will never understand what you see in vex. For a start, HE IS A FACTIONAL CHARACTER

Noelle said...

R u srs


Damn son.

It could be worse for me, I think. Damn Derek for making me think Adra was dating that WORM

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

Snow I'm looking at my TMS poster and Vex is good looking.....I mean I wouldn't date him, Ravel hmm yeah gimme him

Snow said...

XD.

I wonder if derek is looking for mages or mortals to die kn book nine... I wouldn't mind being either, because then my friend would scream...

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

Hey ok picture this: we're all on Skype with Derek and I'm on Nikki's lap. And Derek being his usual weird self decides instead of the yes or no to me being with Ravel off page, he tells a story! And I think I died....I'm pretty sure that night when I was laying in my sleeping bag I remember someone saying: Sheep and 16 Asians and Celine

Snow said...

*slowly hits head on wall* why?! Why am I friendswith you ppeople?! Oh, yeah, thats right : I have no life

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

*pokes Snow*

Noelle said...

Oh Jeez

Sir said...

I find that carbon-based chaos to be overrated, Ms. Stormberg.

Fabi S. - Fashion-Conscious Fire Wraith said...

Indeed?

Nice one.

...

That wasn't in response to the post, by the way. I read it a while ago, but my response was cut off by the disconnection of the internet, and I haven't the patience to type it up again.

...

I did say I would come back completely the next time Derek posted, didn't I?

Rhetorical question. I did.

I'm not sure if I will stick to that, however...

We shall see.

Snow said...

Hello sir.

*pokes zaf back*

Snow said...

Hey fab. I cannot believe zaf and adra are talking about how "dreamy" fictional characters are...

Fabi S. - Fashion-Conscious Fire Wraith said...

Tbh, fictional characters are often a lot better than real people.

...

Sorry to disagree with you, Snow.

Sir said...

Greetings, Ms. Fabienne.

Ms. Stormberg, speaking as a fictional character, I would tend to agree with you.

Snow said...

I shall never understand the teenage girl.... which is a shame, seeing as I am one

Noelle said...

Hey Fabi, Sir!

Snow, it isn't nice to speak down on other people. Shame on you

Noelle said...

Actually, what makes fictional characters so great is because when we fall in love with them, it's because of the way they speak, how they act, who they are. Not because of appearance, because we can't see them.

Btw

Snow said...

Alas, you are right adra. I shouldn't force my opinion.

Sir said...

While I understand that, Ms. Dark, I have held the personal belief that love is more about interaction.

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

Thank you! Exactly Adra!

Fabi S. - Fashion-Conscious Fire Wraith said...

Hi. [waves]

[Shrugs]

Sorry.

Noelle said...

Thank you, Snow.

Sir- although that is true, well... Not to make a religious argument, but I'm fairly certain that those who are Christian love God? *Shrugs* For debate's sake.

Duck said...

CAN'T WAIT FOR THESE SHORT STORIES! I WANT THEN SOOO MUCH!

Sir said...

I apologize, I meant love in the more romantic sense of the word.

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

Hai Duck

Snow said...

Hello duck.

Noelle said...

Ah..

I see.

Well, from my standpoint, if I did meet someone like a character, and they were interested in me, of course I would go for it.

But the curse of loving a character is knowing you could never meet them, so loving a character romantically is out of the question.

Usually. There are, as always, outliers

Duck said...

Hey Zaf, Snow, Sir, Fabi and Adra.

*nods*

Noelle said...

Helloooo Duck!

Sir said...

Greetings, Mr. Duck.

Naturally, Ms. Dark.

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

Agreeable

I love Nic, I think he's cool and in my head I think he's cute, and I like his personality. Nic isn't real in the sense I could meet him, I could meet Ari and speak to him that way but outside here he does not have a body. So yeah.

Duck said...

I once fell in love with a character from a book...

...Then she died...

Well, actually she was a robot the whole time so it wasn't that bad.

Noelle said...

Yeah...

So, I guess, in a nutshell, what Zaf and I are talking about is loving a character, not being in love.

If that makes sense

Snow said...

Rory: Doctor, what are you staring at?

Doctor: Shh..

Rory: Is that…a teenage girl? Is she trapped in there?

Doctor: In a sense. Timey-Wimey thing. I think it’s time to rescue her from her boring little world. What do you think?

Snow said...

Okay, I take it all back. You can love a fictional character. Though that is more admiration

Sir said...

Certainly, loving a character is entirely possible.

Noelle said...

Right

Good

Because Sydney Carton- *weeps in the distance*

Ethan Frome*Weeps more*

That chic from Bridge to Terabithia!


damn

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

Snow said...

Yet I still dont understand the teenage girl.

Fabi S. - Fashion-Conscious Fire Wraith said...

I think I'm going to go...

Okay fab. See ya.

Good bye, Ms. Fabienne.

Chilling, Mr. Duck.

Duck said...

(Just forget about that 'i' that shouldn't be there)

Snow said...

Ooookkkkkaaaaaayyyyyyyyyy ddddddduuuuuuuuucccccccccccccccccckkkkkkkkkkkkkk

Zanida Laufeydottir Queen of Asgard (Zafira Kerias) said...

I ought to sleep now! School tomorrow, ugh.

Night

*cuddles dynamite murmuring in sleep, "John Smith"

Sir said...

Good night, Ms. Kerias. Sleep well.

Noelle said...

Bye Fabi!

Okay Duck?

I daresay, Snow, using the term "the teenage girl" is a bit... Generalizing, eh? The way you say it, it's as if there's an underlying negativity with it. There's nothing wrong with loving. What's the difference between loving a movie, or going places, and loving a character in a book?

I daresay, all ages and genders have at least one character of SOMETHING that they like.

Sorry.
I just don't like being labeled, and that feels like a label.

Which it shouldn't be a label.
I'm going to blame media for this.
But being a teenage girl shouldn't feel bad. Especially when people call you that.
Again.
Media.


But yeah. I hate being labeled. I'm so much more than "the teenage girl".







That escalated. Please don't take that personally, and I'm not mad at you- just... Idk. :P

Noelle said...

Goodnight, Zaf!

Noelle said...

_Oh damnsilenceSeeI'mNotGoodAtExpressingMyOpinionsSorryI'mSoTouchySometimes_

Snow said...

I might go as well. I dint have much to say and I need something to eat... bye

Noelle said...

What was that, Thrust?

NOM Ominous said...

Who? where? what was what?

Quick before the hyenas commmee

Noelle said...

What the hell?

NOM Ominous said...

I don't know how to answer you. You're going to need to be more specific.

Noelle said...

What the hell are you doing?

NOM Ominous said...

doing?
I'm not doing anything. Thats why I came here.

NOM Ominous said...

What are you doing?

Basalt Skies said...

I'm on a quest to read through the classics, while at the same time dig into the newer YA. So many books! I have a growing pile that I am slowly working my way through.

Looking forward to getting a hold of the remaining SP books as well, and seeing your next projects.

Noelle said...

Sorry- the power went out for a sec.

I am re-arranging my bookcase.

Yum.

NOM Ominous said...

Cool. I should do that.
*looks over at bookcase*
No wait, no point. I don't have that many books

Noelle said...

Awh :/

I shall share mine, if you want

Sorry

Brief delay

My older brother just came into my room and started to attack me with a rubber Nerf sword. He turned the lights off, but didn't know that I had a wooden sword. He took up his other wooden sword so it was 2:1, but I picked up my Quidditch broom.

Yeah

That was fun.
I stepped on some glass.

And I have to go now. Goodbye, friend! *cuddles*

*tackles ember*

Mycroft Holmes (Ember) said...

☂The first episode was self-indulgently character-driven... and OUT OF CHARACTER at that! It was like a bad fanfic!☂

☂The second episode was just SAP. Sherlock, what happened? Did somebody drug you while you were away? Did you finally get laid or something? Is that why you're so cheerful? Plot-wise, that one was better, but seriously?☂

☂I haven't properly watched the third episode, just skimmed, but YOU GOT RID OF HIM IMMEDIATELY? And SO AND SO ISN'T DEAD????? I'm getting really tired of this. It just takes away from the drama of the whole thing. Sherlock's going away, oh look, he's not! Why is everything so goddamn convenient?☂

Fabi S. - Fashion-Conscious Fire Wraith said...

Ugh, there's something near the top of the page that really bugs me, and it takes so much effort not to blurt it out.

I'd make a rubbish spy, tbh. :-P

Anyway, I'm going to put the iPad somewhere I can't reach it so I finally get some sleep.

Okay. *hug*

Oh.My.God. Derek watches Sherlock!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I wonder if he ships anyone....... Johnlock perhaps?

*facepalm*

Snow said...

"Her disguise:
'I'm fine.' is her response.
But, she isn't. She's just hoping to convince herself that she is, when she smiles and tells them she's fine.
Just to ease her little mind, she puts on a mask. She folds up all her problems and disappointments and shoves them away.
Just for the day. Thinking maybe, just for now, she could be happy.
Thinking if she forces that fake smile, it would one day become genuine. A real smile.
A genuinely happy smile. That's all she ever wanted. But the thing is, nobody knows.
Nobody who she really is inside, or how hard it is for her.
Not her parents. Not her best friend. Why? Because she wears a disguise.
And because if they knew, they'd say she's exaggerating.
She wants attention. She's just having a bad day. Well, the bad day turned into a bad night.
A bad week. A bad month. A bad year. But, she doesn't want a bad life. She doesn't try to make herself miserable.
She tries really hard to be happy. Sometimes too hard. She's learned not to expect anything from anyone, because with great expectation comes great disappointment.  So much disappointment.
Enough to make her sadness become into emptiness.
She'd rather be sad than empty."

Did you say earlier that you can't love a fictional character

Mycroft Holmes (Ember) said...

You can love a fictional character, the same way you can love a pen pal (I've heard of pen pals that married literally the day they met, and they STAYED together), or on a celebrity that you will never meet. You love a fictional character when you accept them for everything they have to offer, every little flaw, and believe in them. You can love a fictional character, the same way you can ship fictional characters, the same way you cry over fictional characters, the same way stories about heroes in the old days inspired people to become great.

You can love a fictional character.

You can love a fictional character.

You can love a fictional character.

And I know this.
