Aftermath of NaNoFail.

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
I think I know what went wrong with my Bayverse rewrite. I was just pretty much following the plot of the movie, and at a certain point, I was all, "Why am I doing this? This story has already been told." And any and all motivation went out the window.

So Imma work on other stuff for a while, and then I'm going to come back and see if I can't come up with a story that Wants To Be Told.

EDIT: Also because, y'know, I really suck hard core at writing that much per day.

Why do I keep doing this to myself?

I'm having second thoughts about the Bayverse rewrite I've chosen for NaNo. I just don't know if I like it enough to stick with it for a month.

I could switch to Steampunk Beast Wars, maybe. They're both rewrites, in a sense. But - I've done absolutely no prep for BW, unless you count the drabbles that are already floating around out there. If I went with Bayverse I'd have that framework to build a plot around. Hell, for Bayverse I've at least got some notes for the first couple of chapters. But I'm fond of Callie in a way that I'm not fond of Mikaela, and I wouldn't feel like I was banging my head against the brick wall of entrenched race-class-gender-sexuality-FAIL that is Hollywood, and dammit Beast Wars could use some love. On the other hand, dammit that brick wall needs a sledgehammer taken to it.

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGH. I'm going around in circles! Why am I doing this? I should quit.

Yet another thing to procrastinate with.

So Mom took me out for breakfast today as an early birthday thing. Three words, flist: Apple. Bacon. Pancakes. Nomg. <333333

Also, I have a TV now. (Well, I had a TV before, but it was an old boxy thing, and this one is a New Hotness.) Unfortunately it is a New Hotness that didn't seem to come with a remote or a users' manual, so I had to figure out how to turn the thing on and hook up my PS2 via trial and error. I am totes savvy in the Information Age, yo. ;)

Though it does occur to me that having yet another distraction in the Mooglenest right on the eve of NaNo may be a bad idea. (Yes, I'm on NaNo, just as I threatened. My nick's enercoffee if you want to add me, though I will be doing precious little socializing. Writing advice tends to have the effect of making me stop writing.)

.....I think I've lost the knack of how to post on LJ. I've been relying on Twitter too much. -_-
