A Question

*raises hand* I have a question: so, do you think that if you have 10k of a draft for a story, is it possible to get up to 20k!? Like easily up to 20k or will I have to sweat blood and tears and make up words that aren't even in the English dictionary!? I reeeeeally want to do this year's BigBang but I'm afraid that I'm focusing too much on a story that might make it up to 20k, while I could concentrate on a different story that also MIGHT get up to 20k.
*sigh* the worries of a writer ... no one said it was easy, huh?
So any advice, any experiences anyone would like to share?! :) I'll take it all!

You know what sucks? I mean, well a lot of things suck LOL, but ... it sucks, too, when you write a story, but you're too lazy to edit it. *sigh* Like really too lazy. I mean editing takes soooooooooooooooooooooooo much work&time&concentration. I can write you a story in an hour or so, but then I edit for daaaaaays (sometimes weeks)!!! Ugh. It's annoying. It really is.
Sometimes I wish I could just post an un-edited story. You know!? With all the grammar mistakes, with all the weird, odd, crazy sentence structure, etc. I mean the story would have a head and a tail, of course, hahha, but it would be like hot off the press type thingy. Just written. Not edited. Not fixed. Just ... as natural as it flew from under the fingers. :)

Although, I think some people do that too. I sometimes see a story, that has so many mistakes that I'm just like: "what is this!? mistake central!?"
And no, I'm not a grammar nazi, so don't go there.
And sometimes I find a story, that is said had been betaed, but dude, who betaed for you!? Aliens!?

So yeah, sometimes I totally wanna join those people who post their stories with tons of mistakes or with an incompetent beta (yes I said incompetent, because come on, if you're a beta it's basically your job to find mistakes, not ignore them!)

Oh well, so editing for me later this week. :)

Peace&hugs!

... I very rarely post things that AREN'T stories, but I need to ... have a bit of a 'I need a break' here. I was on vacation for the last 3 days with a friend of mine and we went around my country and we (totally unplanned and totally on a weird accident) visited 2 monastaries. With monks still living there. And we saw the monks, they were very polite, very quiet-spoke, very nice, kind.
And ....I wanted to write J2 where one of them is a monk.

Problem ... )

heh :-)

You know what I love? I love it when a plot idea hits me out of the blue ... I wrote a scene for a story almost 2 years ago, well 2 years and 4 months (I checked the date and ... nevermind) and I had absolutey no clue what I wanted to do with it and sure I could just post the scene but that's not really me, is it? So last night an idea just bam hit me like lightning and now I have a plot to wrap that scene into ... heh, idk just wanted to share. It made me realize that hey, sometimes something just needs to marinate for a while! No rush ... :-)
Anywho ... have an awesome day! :-)

Peace&love

So I just send in my draft for the samdean OTP minibang! :) YAY!!!!

This is where my rambling hides...beware! )

BUT IN HAPPIER NEWS: I finally will be able to post that J2 fic that has like 37 warnings/tags, so that's something, right?! I counted them, I had to do it three times, because *scratches head* I kinda got lost somewhere around 26, LOL and had to re-count, but yeah ... but I had to write them all down, because I don't want to trigger anyone with anything and I certainly don't wanna deal with comments that would scream at me why I didn't warn for a certain thing. I'm so not in the mood.

Stay awesome!!! :)

I'm thinking of signing up for the ummm supernatural hardcore big bang ... I do have a story, well half done, but apparently mini bang only requires 5k of words or more (with me and my inability to shut up, I don't think word count would be a problem, LOL) and I could finish the story by the time drafts are supposed to be turned in ... and the story is kinda hardcor-ish and 'm kinda too shy/scared/embarrassed to post it just like that out of the blue, LOL, but if it would be a part of a challenge, then maybe .... pffff, God, idk ... AND then who would make art for that story!? I mean ''kink'' wise, because the ''kink'' the story has, it's not exactly everyone's cup of tea ... man ... *whines* this is what I call "hard decision making" :)
soncnica: (SunFlower)
Sooooooooooooooo I signed up for

Sam Dean OTP Minibang 2014

DO NOT ASK and you shall not receive a dumb answer, because ROFL, all I have are dumb answers! Idk why I signed up, dunno really, but it's only 10.000 words or more and well with my word vomit, I'm sure I can scrounge up 10.000 words, right!?
Yeah ..... and maybe this is an awesome opportunity to finish that Sam and Dean in Sahara fic, I've been working on for like YEARS! ... hmmm ....
And now - after my BigBang - I'm more experienced with this challenge thingies and now I know what/how/when etc.

Have an awesome Saturday!

So, the summaries are up there on the BigBang page for the artists and nosy people *grins, because I'm so one of them* to look at and I saw my summary and nearly puked! LOL :) but in a ''' I'M SO EXCITED I CAN'T HANDLE IT''' kinda way :)))) man, this is really happening, huh!?
I'm off to edit my story a bit more, get it to my beta and such and such and then yup, I'll wait for an artist to come and put my words/scenes into pics or manips or idk what :) LOL :) wooohooo!!!
oh and ANOTHER exciting thing happened and I think I can say it .... I was on Tumblr like idk 2, 3 days ago just scrolling down the #supernatural tag and minding my own business lalalalala and then BAAAAM!!! There was a pic of Jared and his EYES!!!! The color of his eyes on that pic (it was probably done in photoshop I think) was EXACTLY the same as I wrote it be in the story! I'm not kidding you, I wish I could give you the pic AND give you the description of Jared's eyes in my story, but I can't ... but I saw the pic and I nearly had a heart attack. It was just THERE and I was like OMFG ARE YOU FUDGING KIDDING ME!!!! WHO IS THIS PERSON WHO SHARES MY BRAIN?!?!?!?! I never told this to anyone, but I have this ... thing ... about colors and I love experimenting with colors in my stories and I just found a combination of colors that I thought would fit Jared's eyes in my story and then BAAAM this person on tumblr colored Jared's eyes EXACTLY THE SAME!!!! How ... how does THAT happen!? I'm still just .. WHOAH! So now, I have a very good visual of Jared's eyes and I can describe them in my story even more detailed! I really just ... whoah!

Uh ... so ... have a wonderful Friday! :) Love&peace!

Just what the title of the post says!!! :) :) IT IS DONE IT'S DONE AND DONE AND DONE AND I'M SO DONE I'LL START CRYING!!! But it's done!!! :))))

Well 1st draft is done, BUT ... all that means is the skeleton of the story is done, all the scenes are written, all the plot is in there and all I have to do now is: I have to edit it, remove words, add words, stuff like that, change some names, and all that, BUT still .... IT IS DONE!

It has (as of now) 73.104 words, which will probably change and go up to maybe 90k or so when I'll edit and add more descriptions and details and stuff like that, but I'm just happy that the 1st draft is done and I can sent it to the big bang people on May 1st :) yay :)))))

Although right now when I was putting all the chapters (9 of them, plus prologue and epilogue) I was like: but who will read this!? how to make this ... not so boring? how to make this even more --- readable, compelling, interesting!? *shrugs* idk, I just hope that I will come up with a good summary to get people to ACTUALLY give the story a try ... but I'm fearing because the story is J2 and general, as in nooooo slash and so no sex, that people will not wanna read it ... because sometimes *whispers* I think I'm the only one really liking J2 as general, as just friends! I mean don't get me wrong, I love J2 in any form and way, LOL, but ... sometimes I really love reading general stories too ... idk ... maybe I'm thinking too much about this ...

Anywho ... my big bang, my very 1st big bang, actually my very 1st challenge at all, is done and I'm so happy, 'm gonna go write some porn now! I won't touch my big bang at all this weekend and just write some porn! whooot! :)

I just wanna say A HUGE THANK YOU MY SPECTACULAR F-LIST FOR ALL THE SUPPORT AND JUST FOR BEING THERE, OKAY?! JUST THANK YOU!!! *love&hugs*
soncnica: (SAM!!!)
I am crying my eyes out, my computer BROKE!!!! And and and WHAT IF I LOSE MY BIGBANG?!?!?! I'm giving the computer to get fixed tomorrow and and and ugh, God what if I will lose all my data?? I had my BIGBANG FILE on my desktop, right and like my computer broke in such a way that it says that my desktop cannot be found, that it had been deleted and or the disk shifted and I DO NOT FUCKING KNOW and I have Windows 8 and all the programms there just ... disappeared!! I mean I am noooooo expert and idk maybe the data is still somewhere floating in my computer, but what if its not?!?
I mean ... *wails* what if I will loose my bigbang!? What if I will lose ALL OF MY STORIES???!
Fuuuuuuuuuck!
I hate this, I hate it and the biggest irony of all of this ... do you wanna know it? I turned on my computer right now to get my big bang on an USB key AND to send it to my beta!!! That is the biggest irony of it all ..... like, at the moment I wanted to do the back up file of it, my computer decided to screw me three ways to Sunday!
I am angry and crying and I just can't ....
I'm on my tablet so, thank goodness for my tablet, but I want my computer so that I can do my Big Bang and and I just wanna know if my data can be saved! I hate that I will have to wait until tomorrow to find out what is wrong and where is my data and how long will the fixing take and damn it, its a brand new computer, wtf?!!?

I am done... I'd get drunk, if I didn't already have a headache and took a pill for it ...

I will make a post when I will find out about my data and if the computer is fixed or not .. yeah .... *sigh*

Take care, everyone!

I JUST CHECKED THE DATE ON MY CALENDAR AND OMFG WHAT THE HELL!??!?! WHAT THE HELL?!?!?! I SHOULD BE WRITING MY BIGBANG!!! WHAT THE FUCK, LIFE!?! WHY ARE YOU BEING SUCH AN ASSBUTT?!?!!? STOOOOP!!!
But, year Mr. Life doesn't want me to do that, because it's spring and well, I live on a small farm, so ... meadows need raking, the fields need to be plowed, the trees we chopped down need to be hacked into smaller wood (to fit into our fireplace), the animals are having babies, we need to put the seeds into the fields ...  and I'm just DONE! I AM SOOOO TIRED AND I AM SOOO SORE (like muscles I never knew I had are aching) and I feel like I haven't eaten in days ... well, I only eat lunch anyways and even that's like spoon-mouth-spoon-mouth and then back to work! I've lost 2kg already in 3 weeks and I see muscles forming all over my body ... and the spring weather has only begun and ugh ... this year will be busy as always, it seems.
I will TRY my very best to finish this darn BigBang, but it might not be ... all that good! *sigh*

oh so this is what writers of the BigBang call *FREAKING OUT*!? heh,  ... me no likey! no! NO!

Anyhow.. have an awesome week that's ahead of us! :)
Love! :)
soncnica: (SunFlower)
Well then folk, YOU know you're written something dirydirtydirty when you ACTUALLY have to go to the spnkink-meme's pinboard AND spn-hardcore to check their list of kinks, to KNOW how to call some/certain things in your story! And THEN you really, really, really know it's something dirtybadwrong when the list of kinks becomes 28 (and counting) kinks/tags/warnings long!
t'yeah ... *headdesk*
I've NEVER had to do this, and it freaked me out! It really freaked me out!
soncnica: (BigBang)
OH MY FUDGE YOU GUYS!!!! I JUST HIT 20k!! WELL 20.304 WORDS!!!!
so ... yeah ... no need to worry that I won't achieve the minimum words required LOL
I already have the prologue DONE
CH1 is right now at 13.487 words, and it's halfway done (meaning I have to squeeze two more scenes in it and then it's done)
and then I only have 3 more chapters to do! YAY :)

*hugs everyone who will read this* :)
soncnica: (BigBang)
Soooo ... if anyone would like to know (probably no one) BUT ...
I have signed up for the spn_j2_bigbang!
I have gotten myself one of them cute icons and idk who to credit, but oh well ....
I have a TITLE and a SUMMARY for the story!
I have decided it will be J2, not SPN!
I still haven't decided if it will be full on slash OR something very close to it. But not really it.
I already have a beta.
I already have a prologue that is 6.000 words long (yay only 14.000 more words to write!!!)
I have divided the story into a prologue, and 4 chapters, no epilogue, because the last sentence in CH4 will be enough!
I have written a scene already, that made me cry into my pillow and choke on my spit!
I am debating with myself if I should include the mentioned scene in the fic or not, as it broke me!
The story is not supposed to be sad, it's supposed to be happy, laughted-filled, sunny and bright and funny and smelling of hay and forests.
The story is hurt,abused!Jensen with A LOT and I mean A LOT of comforting!Jared (it's my story, I can do what I want! :P)
There's a three sentences ('m not kidding) long het scene in the story that made me bang my head against my desk, because ... well ... het?! Really!? Ugh

That's it ... I am VERY confident that I can do this! I am! Just ... **takes a deep breath** 14.000 or so more words to go!
soncnica: (SAM!!!)
*clears throat* umm, okay my lovely f-list ... umm so I have been giving a lot of thought into MAYBE signing up for this years spn_j2_bigbang *coughs* I still have time until Feb. 1st so ... yeah .. okay ... still some time!

Read on or run away and save your sanity! )

I sometimes ... wonder ... why can't I write something simple and short!? I read so many stories where the plot's done amazingly and all wrapped into this short, awesome, simple story that's still so amazing, you have the feeling that there's absolutely nothing missing, even if the plot's crammed into idk 2.000 words!? And 'm talking stories where the plot could easily be stretched into 20.000 words, yet it's done in 2.000 or so words and there's absolutely nothing missing in terms of feelings, scenes, dialogue, etc.

WHY?!?!?!?!??!!?!?!?! WHY?!?!?! I would have so many stories done, finished and posted if I could do that ... if I could neatly fold a plot into 2.000 words or so!!!

But noooo, I have to write damn novels, have to stretch the freakin' plot into 10.000 words or more ... *makes a gagging sound*
WHY?!
And even if I do somehow manage to write a story, and make it have a plot and be all nice, in 2.000 words or so, I always FEEL there's something missing and I have to edit and edit and edit until the story is 8.000 words long and here we go again!

I hate this, I really do. And I don't even know why this is such a problem - 's not like a lot of people read what I write - but it is and it's kinda driving me nuts!

*sigh*

ugh!

I'm frustrated. I'm writing a story, a one shot, short (well at least I hope it will be, lol), and the story only has two scenes, one happening at one place, the other someplace else, and I can see it all happen in my head, I can freaking smell it, but ... I just can't seem to put what I see into words. It's so frustrating! And annoying! I mean its just two scenes, damnit! Two scenes to put into words, scenes I see soooooo clearly in my head when I close my eyes, but when I wanna write it all down ... no words come to me. *shakes head* But I have to write it, otherwise my head will explode. *sigh*
And then I'm all like, but who will read this? And then I'm like, write for your own peace of mind! But... but... uhhh... idk... and then I'm like, is this steampunk? Or is this just another made up world? And then I'm like, ugh just write, you moron!
Yeah...
Rant over.
