Stump Home (ohsweetwitchery)

Stuff, and things

[ETA: Some links have appeared on my post, they are spam. Don't click them. Meh. Revenge of the LJ, I guess.]

Ever have that mildly terrifying 'shit, am I dead?' moment when try as you might you can't get the motion sensor to see you?

Or have I been watching too much Supernatural?

I miss you guys. I miss LJ. But I think what I miss the most is taking the time to actually write a proper journal entry. It's not that I couldn't use the app to post at any time, but I don't want it to be a tweet or a Facebook status. That's lame.

Taking the time to read the entries, too. And comment. Fuck adulthood. Fuck going to work every day.

Whatever. I'm watching The Walking Dead on Netflix because I always meant to catch up. But it's mostly background noise as I reread an old half finished manuscript I was working on earlier this year. I really like what I've read so far. Just needs some tweaking so I can move on. It's not Terra Paradox (more on that later) but I'm really excited about it.

There's enough worldbuilding in it to keep me happy, but it's not as complex as the world of Terra Paradox. I kinda wrote myself into a cosmological clusterfuck in that one. I think at this point I should finish the whole trilogy, just to make sure it's not so convoluted that I can't write myself out of it. Then release each part.

Anyway, back to the one I'm working on now. I'm calling it The Outlaw Duchess and I think I'm keeping that title. It's an adventure-mystery-romance set in a medieval-style post-apocalyptic world. (Yes, it's still simpler than Terra.) Like, I really want to just gush about this story but I'm really bad at explaining my stories, somehow. It's weird.

Also, I'm going to be releasing, at some point, a series of YA short stories. They all take place in the same world, and for now, the same high school, but they're only vaguely connected. Like a minor character from one may be the protagonist in the other, so forth. I'm calling it the Mythic High series.

Rick and Shane are fighting again. Really, boys? Zombies all over the place and you're fighting over Rick's wife? Great, now you woke up the zombies. Good job, Shane! I think you should get written out of this show soon. Apparently this school was full of zombies. How is that any different from before the zombie apocalypse? Haha.

Anyway, the Mythic High stories. The first one has to do with a mermaid. The second, satyrs. That's all I'll say so far.

My other YA short story series is kind of sitting there, it's a traditional medieval-fantasy setting but the first story needs to be better than it is right now, so we'll see how long that takes.

I'm not giving time frames. I never keep them. But all that I just talked about will get published at some point. Hold me to it.

Love you guys! Hit up my comments.

Got a new Skype user name, jameshalfelven.

I need new LJ icons to reflect my current fandoms, and stuff. Also need to delete some from there. Yech.

Okay back to work.

Hey, LJ is owned in Russia, can I talk about gay stuff? Uh can I? Can I?

Yeah, by the way, all my stories have GAY PEOPLE! BECAUSE GAY MEANS HAPPY! Also, gay is awesome.

I had to.
