04 Your favourite character to write about and why

I love this question.

One Wing Angel:Kiera. Hands down. I could say it's because I love writing women who kick ass and hold their own with the men. (I do!) I could say it's because she's feminine, a leader, and all those other things. (she is!)

However, the really big reason I like writing Kiera? Is because not only is she all those things? But she's also human. And humans to me are utterly fascinating. Especially when you start digging below the surface.

Dragon Blooded: Min Hou. She's a jackass, honorable, arrogant, has Mommy Issues that grad students could use for papers forever and so military it hurts. She's the one without the sense of humor at all, yet, to me she's hilarious.

Okay, now that meme is out of the way, an update:

I finished stitching the Geisha and have now gone on to doing all the outlining that can't be done until the stitching is done. Sigh. It's possibly even more tedious. D:

But, I am getting it done and hopefully this weekend there will be pictures. I'm hoping to get the outlining done by Monday, and have it at the framers by Tuesday, but we'll see.

My babies turn 12 on Saturday and my kitten is a year old this week too. Now, back to work.

More meme!

Since this is a very lazy Sunday...

03 Explain the main basis of the plot

One Wing Angel: A school that was once the bastion of the nobility, has recently opened its doors to commoners, who are sponsored by the nobles they serve.

However, one noblewoman realizes that the children she sent there to learn are disappearing. So, she sets out to find them and return them home. They are her responsibility.

She just wasn't counting on several complications that turn up. Including her heart.

Dragon Blooded: When great change is imminent, the four Dragon Blooded are born and brought together, under the care of a Protector. Legend says the four are closer than any family or lover. However, the youngest of the group is finding it hard to trust the other three - who have been friends for their entire lives - and run an investigation into why the army has refused to help her clan.

On a break from cleaning, so I shall post a meme:

02 Describe the world that the story happens in (use photos or graphics if you want)

One Wing Angel: Originally, I stated "generic fantasy land" however, I've changed that in my mind. Why?

Because I've been trying to describe the school in my head and the surrounding countryside. It hasn't worked, until I was looking at something else and came across some pictures and my mind went "THAT!"

So, have some pictures. This is the school. I imagine it a darker stone, but that's still the school where the beginning of the story takes place. These two are indicative of the countryside our intrepid heroine goes through.

Dragon Blooded: I've drawn a map for this, and keep it close, but haven't scanned it in.

Not only is this a pseudo Asian world (Koren, Japanese, and Mongolian influences) but it's also a militaristic society. The divisions are fortresses, and the estates have huge walls around them. This makes for tiny pockets of different cultures. It's actually very interesting. Plus, there's the difference of the main island versus the smaller ones around it.

So, yeah.

Since I'm restless and having trouble concentrating, I thought I'd do a writing meme:

01 Title of a current Project and reason behind the title

Two current WIPs:

One Wing Angel: titled because that's the song I was listening to at the time.

Dragon Blooded: When the world is going under a big change, the Four Dragon Blooded are born and come together.

Taken straight from [personal profile] clare_dragonfly:

Here's how it works: To play, first open your music library (iTunes, Media Monkey, iPod, Winamp, or whatever else you use. If you don’t use a music library... well, dang. This probably won’t work so well with Spotify, last.fm, etc., but you could try it). This is your entire, unfiltered library - no special selections, no playlists. Everything.

Make sure your library is on shuffle. Press play and, for each of the numbered plot points on the list that follows, fill in the song that’s playing. Press ‘next’ for each new plot point, but no skipping, and no cheating!

Are you brave enough to expose your guilty musical pleasures to the world... or try to make sense of the soundtrack that emerges?

Soundtrack of my life )
