This is a big overwhelming list which is probably going to be overwhelming and then turn into maybe putting things on Trello?

Big list of big )

That'll do for now...
randomling: Peter Bishop (Fringe) ponders something. (peter)
So there's a lot of old stuff from my old hard drive that needs airing out and shaking vigorously and turning into useful notes so I can maybe one day get some of it written.

Under the cut: I go through the old bunny list and make semi-coherent notes.

Content note for mention of (my own) transphobia and child sexual abuse.

In which I air my dirty laundry )

Ooh this was useful.

I should do more processing.
randomling: Dana Scully (The X-Files) (scully)
I keep meaning to make a grand life update but I am failing. I keep feeling majorly intimidated by the idea of writing out a whole entry, though, so here are some bullet points.

* I keep meaning to get back into DW development and failing.
* Mental health is variable and dodgy.
* This week I started learning German. I am doing quite well at translating song lyrics, with lots of help from a friend who's a native speaker, Google Translate, cognates, and linguistician's logic. I'm also doing the absolute beginner's course at Livemocha which is teaching me useful things. (But having a native speaker around who's willing to take me through things and geek out with me about linguistics, is invaluable and awesome fun.)
* I have two large WIPs and one short one. (This is just the ones I'm working on right now. The list of languishing bunnies is terrifying.)
* I have started (edit: I mean "started playing in") an RP! I am playing Joel, who is the main character of my languishing paranormal romance novel. He is awesome and it's lots of fun. It's offsite, but I'm considering making him a journal.

That will do for now!
randomling: Mulder (The X-Files) looks up at the sky. "the truth is out there" (the truth is out there)
Almost 17,000 words this week!

~7.5 on WIP Big Bang.
~9.5 on my original sci-fi porn.

My mood is all over the place, but I am getting words written, so that's something I can at least call an accomplishment.
randomling: Peter Bishop (Fringe) ponders something. (working)
Social media is complicated. I have lots of it, in various states of disuse. I'm reasonably okay with these accounts being linked to each other, but if you know my wallet name, please don't link it with any of these accounts.

Places you can find me! )
randomling: A very young Justin Timberlake with an expression of great distress. (oh noes)
Well. OLD new fic. This was written alongside Park Guy (sooooo, five plus years ago), and serves as a prequel and companion piece. I just found it in my email, polished it up and gave it a title (with the aid of the wonderful folks at #yuletide), and bingo. New fic!

Specifically for [livejournal.com profile] phaballa, who cheerled it hard back in the day.

This came to me in the form of a TV script. I don't know how to write TV scripts and I don't actually care - I'm not planning to do anything with this. Just wanted to get it out of my head. It's junky and needs some work and I don't know if I've actually stolen it wholesale from a Sorkin show (it has that flavour) but it needed to be posted.

randomling: Garak (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine) (garak)
I'm seriously considering doing both [livejournal.com profile] wipbigbang and [community profile] queer_bigbang. So I'm making a list of potential candidates for each challenge.

WIP Big Bang )

Queer Big Bang )

I've struck out the projects that are clearly novel-length and the two original pieces I'd like to try to publish (Voicemail from God and Factory Settings).

This leaves me with two candidates for WIP Big Bang and TWELVE for Queer Big Bang, oh God.

Cal and Vincent has the advantage of already being on the slate, and it'd give me motivation to finish that thing, which is good. So that seems like a reasonable thing to write for WIP Big Bang. But nothing is leaping out at me for QBB. I suppose it's complicated by, while I have lots of queer romances on my bunny list, not being sure if that's really sufficiently queer for QBB. So I'm dithering.

*dither, dither*

ETA: I think I'm going to do the time travel story.
randomling: A slightly off-centre picture of Nine (Doctor Who) in black and white. (black and white 9)
Just some rambling on what I want to do next of the many, many projects on my bunny list.

Priorities )
randomling: Dr Julian Bashir (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine) (bashir)
By organising my bunny list. Oh my god, there are so many things I could write. Including prompts that are more than five years old (I'm so sorry, guys). But yay, ideas! Including many ideas for original stories, which is amazing, and not a thing I ever thought would happen.

So that is a positive.

And I'm currently being really inspired by a story I am writing, with the aim of submitting it to [livejournal.com profile] bb_shousetsu. Which is extremely good news!

Focusing on writing is a useful thing when I'm down. So having it coming back to me is awesome.
randomling: Jack Harkness (Doctor Who/Torchwood) looking pissed off. (jack harkness)
Borrowing also the concept of the TA DAH list from [personal profile] kaberett.

Dull )
That will do for now!
randomling: Zoe (of Firefly) looks confused and disgusted. (zoe)
Okay - having whined about my lack of resilience, here is an attempt to get slightly better:

List! )
randomling: Kira Nerys (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine) (kira)
Ugh, this is exactly what I mean by resilience.

The fact that I got a cold and have been out of action for a week and am back to getting out of bed at 1.30pm instead of 9am.

The fact that I haven't got dressed for three days and am struggling to get even tiny things done and am avoiding checking my voicemail and returning phone calls.

All of this because of a cold.

This is the problem I am talking about, the one I am struggling to fix.

Ugh.
