So, I've been more focused on working on the geisha lately than I have writing because that has a definitive timeline on it.

However, I did finish Script Frenzy and have since finished the script itself, so that's something right?

Anyway, I have a great many things to talk about but they just aren't coming up. So, let me break this down:

Geisha: I've moved the hoop several times and am working on it still. I'm going to try to have it done by the beginning of June, because my daughter is coming the middle of June and it's for her birthday.

Writing: I am not going to be working on anything new, beyond fanfiction because summer is coming and the children will be out soon. If I can write anything, I'll be happy. But I'm not holding my breath.

Editing: I gave this up for Script Frenzy and need to get back to it. I'm hoping to have this done by the time my daughters come for a visit.

Now, I'm going to try to start doing writing memes or something here. We'll see what happens. Until then, I'm going to go back to my Geisha stitching.

PROGRESS

That's right, two posts in one day about progress.

Geisha Progress! )

Check it out!

I just moved my hoop and I'm working on it more. So damned proud.

This is an update on things that have been done.

So, I am doing Script Frenzy. Currently, it sits at 30/100. That's a couple days ahead at least. Which, is good for me because I like being ahead of the game.

And I probably won't get much done on Tuesday and Thursday of this week.

Anyway, yeah. That's getting places.

Now, to add a photo to this. Remember the Geisha that I've been working on? Well, I think it's coming along quite a bit!

Have a picture: )

The current plan is to have it done and framed for my eldest's 18th.

So, I wanted to update everyone. I haven't been editing lately, but that's because SF has taken over my life. Once it's done, then, I will get back to it and get it finished.

So, happy zombie day everyone, and I hope you all have fun!

So, I've decided to do it, starting tomorrow. I'm totally chill with the idea that I can use it to script out a pair of novels I'd like to work on. That'll be a good thing. Maybe, it'll lead to something good happening in the future.

So, if anyone knows where there might be tutorials for Celtx? I'm all ears. I'm going to be trolling youtube looking for them once I'm done with Saturday things.

So, yes. Now, currently the thought is this for Script Frenzy:

I have two stories that I'd like to poke at and get working on. (One Winged Angel and Dragon Voices)

Those two stories will be the ones that I will be scripting out, during Script Frenzy in a hope to make them easier to write in the future. (Planning! Yay!)

Also during the month of April, I'll be finishing up my edit of Dragon Blooded (sense a theme, folks).

So, let me look at the next few months:

April:

- Script Frenzy (One Winged Angel/Dragon Voices)
- Finish Edit on Dragon Blooded
- Work on Geisha

May:

- Work on Geisha
- Finish NaNo 2011
- Query Letter (KoO)
- Secret Societies

June:

- Finish Geisha

That's as far ahead as I'm willing to go right now, since the middle of May signals the end of school. And I can't guarantee anything getting done during the summer months, save for being very hot.

Also, since this is my creativity blog:

I like working on the Geisha while watching TV shows/Movies/Anime. Please give me recommendations for movies/tv shows/anime that I might like. (Currently watching: Supernatural. Next on the list: Leverage.)

What I like:

- Police procedural
- Mystical/mythical elements
- Fights are a bonus
- Large overarching plots

What I don't like:

- Romance as a main plot line
- Rape culture
- Embarrassment as a major component (which is what made me stop watching Big Bang Theory)
- Sitcoms

So, if you've any suggestions, feel free! Because I'm kinda tired of the tried and true (CSIs, Law and Orders, etc) and would like to branch out a little bit. Keep in mind, it can have some parts from both lists and doesn't have to hit all of them. I'm willing to look at just about anything.

Wow.

So, today, while watching the Super Bowl* I finished my first creative goal of the year. I finished the shawl I was knitting and even crocheted the border on it like the pattern said to.

There's nothing like completing a goal to urge your on to others is there? I'm very proud of the fact that I managed to finish the goal and I'm proud of the shawl. Hopefully, the person who receives it will be as impressed.

Anyway...

I just wanted to update this, because finishing a goal pushes us towards others, right?


*Can I just say? YAY GIANTS! I have a dislike for Tom Brady. I don't know why, but I do, so there.

This is more for me than anyone else. Feel free to skip or ignore at will.

Writing Project outlines )

So, those are the writing projects. There might be more waiting in the wings, but... for right now, that's it.

Creative projects )

I want to find another knitting project, and I'll definitely be adding smaller cross stitching projects throughout the year.

That's my outlines. Any questions? Feel free to ask!

So, this is 2012. Things are going to be a little different. This isn't so much a "writing blog" any more as a "creative blog". I think that works better.

I still won't be mentioning too much fanfiction, unless I have a recc or something. However, I will be mentioning knitting, cross stitch, writing, cooking and perhaps art.

I don't really draw that much, but occasionally, I do pick it up. I have children so I cook quite a bit, believe it or not.

Creativity is part of my New Year's resolutions. Not necessarily writing. However, I am going to post them here:

- Query letter out for KoO
- Finish shawl
- Finish Geisha
- Cook more
- Learn to bake bread
- Sew something

These are my creativity goals for the year. Along that note, I'm looking for recipes and patterns (sewing, not knitting) that are relatively simple and easy.

In sewing patterns: I really don't like hand sewing except for cross stitch and I do have a sewing machine (not a serger). I do have an iron, and will be purchasing an ironing board. I'm a relative beginner when it comes to sewing, but know a few things. I prefer sewing home furnishings to clothing, but simple skirts/dresses would be okay for my daughter. I would like to also sew stuffed animals and things like that.

Recipes: Cheap, easy and simple. Crock pot recipes are love. Nothing too spicy (my son is allergic to capsaicin) or too dependent upon fancy cooking utensils. We love chicken, fish and pork chops. We don't eat a lot of beef, but do enjoy it. I do make beans, but lentils aren't a big hit.

Yeast breads are what I don't really know how to make, so recipes for them are complete welcome, as well as tutorials.

Even if you aren't sure? Just post a link and I'll take a look! I like to try new things.

Keep in mind, I'm not looking to sell anything. I'm just looking to make them for my own enjoyment.

So. These are my goals for 2012. Today's the first day and since there's football, I'm going to go work on the shawl so that it's closer to getting done.

Happy New Year everyone.
