Huntress i.e. my Dean-has-a-twin-sister series needs help. I have a plot bunny about the series that JUST WON'T GO AWAY. I've tried telling it no. I've tried ignoring it. I've tried to give it away even but it keeps coming back.

This tells me that I should probably seriously consider using the bunny because it further seperates the Huntress series from canon.

In part, the bunny was inspired by you, StarAndrea! Your Sky 'Verse Michael!Dean is a favorite of mine, and while I could never write your Dean, you made me think of this.

The problem is this, Dean's twin sister is Anna Campbell (and the reason she's a Campbell and not a Winchester is a story for a later day). There is a Supernatural character named Anna that people should be very familiar with: Anna Milton.

Or rather, Anael.

FYI: I don't know if you'd consider this a spoiler given that I don't know if I'm going to go with this bunny or not, however I will say that this could be a spoiler in the future, so if you want to be surprised by the Huntress stories and not have a hand in deciding on the bunny, don't read. There is nothing here that is actual Huntress headcanon spolier, so you should be safe if you're curious.

Now my plot bunny is this: )

So, there's the delimma. Any thoughts, or am I going to have to invest in the heavy duty bunny killer?

 In addition to publishing my own novel last year, I wrote 253,069 words of fanfiction. December was my best month for writing fanfiction with November being second best. This is ten thousand words less than I wrote in 2010, but I counted my originals in the 2010 count but not in the 2011 count.

Last year my New Years Resolution was to not write chapters of less than a thousand words unless it was a one shot and I was marginally successfull in that goal.

This year, I have several writing goals that I should call resolutions.

1. Finish and publish Highband Honor
2. Write a thousand word short story every day
3. Finish The Rainbow Brotherhood
4. Publish at least one short story anthology
5. Participate in one Camp NaNo session and win with a single story
6. Participate in NaNo and win with a single story
7. Finish Get in Gear
8. Finish Wayward Son
9. Start Fantasy Novel
10. Finish one of the NaNo Novels from 2011

Ten's a good number isn't it?

For story facts, right now, I am working on:

Get in Gear (RPM)
A Bend in the Road (Samurai)
Courtship of Kai (Lost Galaxy)
For The Safety of Bystanders (Dino Thunder)
Wayward Son (Turbo/Stargate Atlantis)
The Blood Children (The Black Jewels Novels)

I plan to start in the near future:

The Power of Friends: Speed (Ronnie/Operation Overdrive)
Huntress 04: The one with the missing children, a witch and the yellow eyed demon

Not to mention my NaNo novels:

Blog of a Teenage Superhero
Fighting Fates

and A Thousand Voices, my personal challenge to write one thousand stories of a thousand words each. The first fifty are grouped under the heading Tabitha's Toy Chest and are about a Wish Fairy taking care of children and protecting their wishes and dreams.

Not to mention my new FanFic writing rules to improve discipline:

No chapters to be less than 1250 words each unless it's a one shot
Round chapters to the nearest multiple of 25, up or down as needed
Huntress specific: Plot twists are spontaneous, but the mystery must beknown before the story is written, the unsub identified, the victims and a vague idea of how to catch it, plus the quote.

Oh and finally, I want to be a better artist, so that I don't have to use other people's work as a guideline.

Why I opened this up.  Except, I know that I'm about three chapters from the end of Rituals, but I think Wayward Son is going to be a very long one.  GiG is fifty plus, easy, but Honor (which I need to update) won't go over twenty five.

Oh, I remember!  Starting tomorrow (? Today?) I'm going to post a series of essays about the Rangers to my "community", and link it here.  Just a way to organize my thoughts and make my characters a little more 3D.

I have this insane urge to write an AU Samurai fic about Mike being some rich heir whose uncle is a douchebag.  I don't know about that though...

I do know I want to do a low-dialogue piece about Mike and Emily and their friendship to romance.  We'll see.

guardian_of_hope: It's all about us (Zhane and Andros)
Just wanted to share something, but first, background...

I'm working out a sequal to Of Magic and Ninjas with a working title of First Mystic and it's a crossover between Mystic Force and[personal profile] starandrea 's story First Blood, (and the rest of the 'First' Universe of course)  Although I'm not really writing in First, it's more like I'm using First as inspiration for First Mystic.  Anywho, I thought I would share a short paragraph just for the heck of it.

Andros knew he was paranoid, Zhane, Ashley and even Karone had complained about it.  Zhane, and to a lesser extent Ashely, also held out that he was insane to.  If he was insane, Andros knew he didn't have hallucinations.  When the green clad teen appeared in his living room with a concussive boom of displaced air, he didn't think twice about dropping the red mug Ashley had given him and drawing his blaster while sending a mental summons to Karone, Zhane and Ashley.
When the teen spotted him, raised his hands and said, "Hi, I'm Xander." Andros wondered if Justin had been toying with ID travel again.
And then Karone 'ports in with Zhane while Ashley comes charging out of the bathroom, possibly half-dressed and things get very confusing.

I'm working on this one kind of slowly because I want to do it right, and I'm in the middle of a bunch of stories right now.  Also, birthday goal: to complete a story before posting.  Now that I'm at a point where I'm finishing stories, I want to move to writing them before posting.

I think I may have managed to get Tumblr to follow my dreamwidth journel...but I can't make the opposite happen.  Not fun.  Ok, maybe fun if I can make it work, because then I can post here and have it show up over there and that will fix this little new years thingy that I've been pretending I didn't make last year.  (AKA the promise to post more on DW)

We'll see, we'll see.

People are following me on tumblr which kind of sets off my phobia about being followed.  (I once bolted out the entrance of a haunted house because someone started following me when we walked in the door.)  It also makes me feel like I should say something.  Since I don't know what to say...I thought I'd share my thoughts over here.

I think I'll just put up another banner and some quotes...just to put something up.

Looking at the stories I have listed on, I am surprised to realize that I am currently working on the longest two stories I have posted. While currently Red Fraternity holds that honor, being over 44,000 words long, The Power of Friends is already fourteen chapters posted and I haven't even gotten out of Dustin's story. Don't get me started on Summer's Boys. After fifteen chapters, I still am building up to the big night, and then the climax will follow, and working out the climax and solution is going to take chapters. Chapters of conversations and actions and observations so that when the truth is revealed it's had a nice bit of build up without giving the game away. And besides that, I suck at foreshadowing, either that, or I'm brilliant at it, because nobody's guessed the unusual pairing that will appear in the story, but at the same time it's frustrating that I'm scattering these hints and awkward moments and only half of them are actually being picked up on.

Not to mention that I'm plowing through The Valient my Chronicles of Narnia story, a chapter at a time. That's fun. I'm going slowly to make sure that I'm laying some of the ground work for Lucy's future.

Other than that, I don't know too much else, so here are some banners. Enjoy!

Banners!!!!!!! )

I was thinking about doing JulNoWriMo, because I've been hashing out this story, but then I realized that I still don't know enough. I know a lot of the back ground of it, and the world building is fairly simplistic, because most of the story takes place on a single space station, but there's a lot more it needs.

So it's back to the drawing board for The Warders. Maybe I'll have the planning stages done for NaNo. I hope so. This story is going to be intense.

This is a rose, and it represents weird RL moments and awsome thoughts.

THIS is the awsome thought for this rose... )
