READ IT & WEEP
After finishing the first draft of my FIRST EVER 10K FIC, I've got it printed and have edited about a quarter of it. So far, even with minor mistakes and notes on scenes to rework, I'm enjoying the story and can't wait to read more. That may change the deeper I get into this and as the conflict leading to the buttsex heats up.
I've checked my fic records for this fic and it turned out that I spent exactly a month writing the first draft. This means that I need the margin of time in between chapters to think through the plot and that I'm far from capable of completing the NaNoWriMo challenge. I don't have to aim towards that though, especially when I'm deliberately focusing on a project that's not 'time sensitive' and that I have to post asap in order to catch a captive audience.
Taking writing slow and steady also gives me more room to experiment and really think about what I want to have written. In the writing of my draft, taking the 10 days of 30 just to think and sort out my worries enabled me to be better at the aspects of writing I thought I'd be really bad at. For one, I liked the exposition/worldbuilding bits!
Finishing Kyoryuger (8 eps), LuPat (5 eps) & Time Force (7 eps)
On top of that, I started 4 eps of Metalder, yet another Metal Heroes series >_> The toku franchise that's probably the least female fan friendly of them all. Speaking of Metal Heroes, I keep thinking about the latest Space Squad movie (Gavan VS Dekarangers) and its potential for kinkfic. Too bad that there's already a fic in the tag or else I can focus on it to come up with a PWP for the upcoming Be The First Challenge.
Maybe I need to accept that I can do away with the plot of tokusatsu. For shows I'm watching the first time, it might be worth watching the endgame just to know how it unfolds. But for shows I'm rewatching, I might as well skip to the end and over the parts I'm uninterested in.
Binged minutephysics' vids on Youtube & started Philip K. Dick's Ubik
The scifi research continues! I'm engrossed in Ubik and just reached the part where the serious shit goes down (one-third through the book). As per my case with the classics, I don't really like any of the main characters. That may not be a problem for me since I'm mostly into this for the worldbuilding.
HOLY MOTHER EXPOSITION
There's good news and bad news regarding the development of my latest Timeranger fic.
Bad news: INFO DUMP FALLING LIKE ROCKS FROM THE SKY. Sometimes I ask myself if this fic needs this much worldbuilding to connect one sex scene to the next. Then again, I'd have a much harder time portraying the development of Naoto and Tatsuya's relationship if they aren't doing anything else important in their lives. Since they're such driven guys, it'd be more believable for them to have the mental space to work on better relating to each other once they've made a dent on growing in other areas.
So, I'd just have to keep working on pasting up my scifi one day at a time =/ All my years of only skimming the sex scenes of Manna's The Administration series and little of the plot are catching up to me. As I muddle through the expository sentences, I'm amazed at how many ideas I've gathered for this verse since coming up with it in the middle of Meidi-ya.
Good news: ONE MORE PAGE TO GO. Until I complete this draft! I continue to turn my restless mind inside out for a way to end this on an intriguing note and get prepared for the slog of editing.
Karaoke video for TimeFire's Theme nearly done!
New video coming up! I've been planning to make a karaoke video using Powerpoint with each slide containing a screencap + three lines - the Japanese lyric, the Japanese lyric in Hiragana for singing along and the English translation.
What's left for this project is to decide what to put for 20-secs the Instrumental bits. I'm thinking of putting more Japanese info on it and my own translation, but I put it off cause it's nerve-wracking ;_;
With this done, that means I'd have one more Timeranger fanwork prepared for next year's 20th anniversary. By then, I'd have moved on to another show and who knows what it'll be...
Re-watched more than half of Kyoryuger
Randomly decided to rewatch my first Sentai. I still haven't made headway on figuring out my problem with finishing Sentai shows -- only 7 more Time Force episodes to go and the entire LuPat endgame to go through. It's not worth stressing over completing shows, so as with my usual pattern, I shall just play what I need for the day to lift my mood.
