Don't do this.

Do not put author's notes in your stories.

Do not put author's notes in your stories.

Everytime you do this something cute and cuddly dies.

In a fire.

Clarification: I'm not talking about actual author's notes just before or after the story, I mean INSIDE THE STORY ITSELF.

Don't do this. Seriously.

Go Chouji go!


Okay, still not impressed with latest Bleach manga (Oh, he's training AGAIN? NEVER WOULD HAVE SEEN THAT COMING HAR)

BUT THIS CHAPTER OF NARUTO WAS BOSS. CHOUJI DESERVES HUGS AND BITCHES. OR HUGS BY BITCHES.

I'm so happy for Team 10. Ino made herself more than useful and awesome, Shikamaru took a back seat FOR A CHANGE and Chouji got his chance to shine. It was a good day. ♥

I did write some fics, all ShikaSasu or ShikaNejiSasu. Er, I'll post them up here when I'm not feeling lazy. For now, I'm off to go clean!


And mangastream finally picked up Skip Beat! Yay!

Working on fanfic

Currently working on: It's All A Lie and Reformed.

Just read chapter whatever this week's Bleach is.

Kubo Tite lied.

He's never going to end Bleach.

It's going to go on. Forever.

Plans for this weekend

Finish anthology submission

Work on It's All A Lie (I'm about 500 words in with the off and on that I've been working on it)

Do some plotting on this M/F plot idea I have.

Dunno if I'll manage to finish anything, but it's worth a shot.


Also, I'd kill to be able to see as much SasuNeji as SasuNaruSasu everyday. I think at this point I can honestly say I don't really care for the pairing. I used to be indifferent to it, now I just want to go a DAY without seeing it one way or another. Just one day.

I used to like SasuGaa/NejiGaa but I've kind of fallen out of those pairings too. Mostly because I hate the way Gaara is depicted in fanfiction. An emo suicidal cutter with no real personality beyond that. I've...fallen out of a lot of yaoi Naruto pairings, honestly. I can only imagine Neji with either Itachi or Sasuke (preferably Sauce) and Sasuke I can really only imagine with Neji. Not that I'm not fans of the other pairings, just that my love for them has waned. Woe.

But I'm also probably one of the only people on the net that solidly believes SasuHina can become canon.

Doujinshi!

So, went to Akihabara and picked up some doujin. Unfortunately, none of it was what I was looking for. I was hunting for either Hibari/Chrome doujin or SasuHina, NejiHina, or SasuNeji(Ahahaha) doujin. All I found was SasuNaru and Akatsuki...none of which I purchased.

I picked up 4 total, and I'll scan some of it laterz:

1 Ulqui/Orihime art anthology
1 Roy/Riza doujin
1 Vegeta/Bulma doujin (yei!)
1 ShikaTema doujin ♥

Those were hard to find, the ShikaTema was the last one at the store. The art is beautiful. No Yaoi, as I'm picky about my m/m doujin and they had nothing I wanted. Hell, finding het was difficult enough!

Disability Writing Project

I'm posting this here since I have a lot of followers and I feel it's very important to get the word out and gain some support.

A fellow author, R.J. Scott, is doing a project in support of Autism Awareness Day in addition to any other disabilities out there.  Other writers (You do not need to be published, this is volunteer only) will be either donating their e-books or submitting a piece. I will be doing the latter. This is non-profit, but being someone with a disability myself, I feel very strongly about supporting a cause like this. My piece will be near and dear, since it'll be based on my personal experiences.

Even if you don't submit anything, spreading the word would also be helpful and there's going to be a lot of good reads out there for those who enjoy reading.

Fanfiction Rant - "I like him, he likes her, these two boys want me, I want them, blah blah drama."

Warning: If you like Hinata drama-centric fics where guys fight over her or she likes more than one guy, do not read this rant. Please. I'm not trying to offend anyone, this is just my personal opinion on the topic and I am not in any way trying to bash anyone in particular. And no, I am also not saying you're a bad writer if you write these sort of fics or that your particular fic is bad. I just don't enjoy them.

 

Rant, blah, rant. )

A debate

I've been looking over my old fanfics from time to time and realized...my earlier ones are quite horrid. I really want to go back over them or re-write them...but that'd take away from current updates. So I'm thinking: Go back over certain fics (Like A Traitor Branded and The Ties That Bind Us) or finish what I got and then go back? Probably the latter, but Ties is one I'd really like to revamp. It's not my best work at all. I could give that fic more justice.

S'all I got.

Well nao.

I got published! Silver Publishing accepted Destined.


OMFG editing is hard! You'd be surprised at the amount of mistakes people make while writing. I was given a general pre-editing worksheet and in going through it, I realized how many bad habits I had I didn't know about. (I'll happily share it with anyone who wants to take a gander)

Dunno if I linked this, but I'll be updating my blogspot and Catriana Sommers FB account with up to date information concerning the book as I get it.

This will be the last entry here concerning my original works.

I'm still here

I'm still around. Sorry I don't have much for fanfiction, I guess I've kind of switched up. Instead of writing nothing but fanfiction, I've been working on my original stuff more.

I've submitted Destined to another publishing company. I am keeping my fingers crossed. I'm actually going to stop posting about my original works here, since I now have an author's blog for that. I'll be using my [livejournal.com profile] arcanus_series  blog to post up other original works and leave this strictly for fanfiction.

So just wanted to say that no, I have not abandoned fanfiction, yes, I do still plot it out in my head, but at the moment becoming published is my priority.

I'm working on an anthology for Silver Publishing. It's a Father's Day Theme. I've only posted it up on [livejournal.com profile] tabooslash  I'll post it up on [livejournal.com profile] arcanus_series  for anyone interested. It's M/M, modern setting.

For those following [livejournal.com profile] sasunejisasu , the Gakuen RP between myself and [livejournal.com profile] ero_chibi_chan will be updated once I have some time to edit the chapter. It's done, I've just been busy.


Fics I Plan on Updating:

Reformed
It's All A Lie(maybe)

I'm kind of piled with school work, so I'm not sure if I'll be able to update it this week or not.

Okay, seriously?

Writing a novel? Easy. I swear it is.

Doing the second draft? Now that's where the challenge is. Learning what to cut what not to cut. What to add and not. What to change and what not to change...


*headdesk*

I'm okay, srsly. Every novelist goes through this, right? Because me and Transcendence just are NOT getting along right now. Stop changing on me, you stupid plot! You're annoying! *shakes fist at*

I'm not actually frustrated, it's kind of fun/not really to face the woes of novel writing. I mean, TBH, Destined has gone through so much. I had re-written it twice, submitted it to publishers, expanded it. Expanded it AGAIN, resubmitted. Rejected a Vanity publisher and expanded it AGAIN. It went from 27,000 - 63,000 words. I got me beta looking over it and once she goes over the chapters, I'm going over them once more and THEN I'm submitting it. I gotta write up a synopsis(or is it summary?) and I'm still trying to figure out how to condense everything into one page (Lawl)

Fey Publishing had told me to re-send it after expanding on it (they said minimum was 50,000 but they preferred 100,000). I'm hoping if it's eye catching enough, they'll want to take Arcanus. Or, I can wait until I finish Arcanus and submit that instead. I'll be working on Transcendence at the same time. *lesigh*

I know I should be posting this on the other journal, but I figured some folks might like to read my tales of trying to become a published author.


Fanfiction Front: Haven't given up on it. I'm doing a lot of shorts, like the 100 Theme Challenge. I do not, however, upload those here. You are more than welcome to wait until they pop up on FF, or you can view them on dA, which is where I post them. ATM, my novel has become my top priority and TBH, I'm really not in a SasuHina mood. I've neglected my SasuNeji OTP for too long and it's coming to bite me in the ass. So SasuNeji it is. Blame FF for not having enough good SasuNeji fics to sate my addiction.
