Fight the good fight, precious!

I've noticed I kinda post a new blog whenever I'm beginning a new paper, so I figured, Why stop now?

My next paper is for science. Basically it's supposed to be an explanation for why evolution doesn't work, preferably in the form of a dialogue. I'm scared to start writing it, cuz I want to be witty and impress JP, but I think I need to just write what I know, and insert wittiness later if I can. :P

OH and I got an inspiration for a short writing project...I might post it here when I'm done cuz it's *supposed* to be short...but we'll see...

You'll understand what I mean when I say there's no way we're gonna give up!

I decided to reward myself for finishing my Scriptures paper by posting a blog. :D I love rambling about writing.

So, what am I up to, writing-wise? For now I have two more research papers for school, as well as a mildly creative piece for Lit.

For May I think I've firmly decided on writing my "Missing Door" plot. I'm gathering other plot-bunnies by the cartload, but I won't talk about those just now. I'm a little disturbed by how many sequels I could write. Like, I have two different sequel ideas for "Furies", a potential one for Tasliri (haha which I haven't even FINISHED yet, bleh), and at least one sequel for the jano (this one is almost completely formed in my mind).

Old projects status: Episode CCXII probably will never get looked at again. I didn't do my usual "let's spontaneously create a million continuity errors as I write!" thing so it's basically how I want it except for basic spelling and grammar errors, which I don't care enough about to go and properly fix. I think my next editing project will be finishing off Hell Hath No Furies, because it's in pretty good shape as it's in, and I'd just like to put that one to rest. The Jano is as good as it's going to get for now. Someday I'd like to go and add a lot more to it, because it's rather short, especially the end. my curse. It has so many problems as of now I'm not sure when, or if ever, it'll be done. I'd like to, though. I really would. I owe it to Zarcael, if no one else. :P Cirx is BEGGING for his own story, too. *SIGH*

Besides big projects, I want to get in the habit of writing like a "sketch" each day. Just a short-short story, or a short descriptive/expository piece, just to keep me writing somewhat creatively every day, because I feel like my skills (the little I have :D) have been slipping lately.

How much time do I have for all this? ABSOLUTELY ZERO! Nada. Zip. Negative. I live in a dimension of negative-time. It's awesome.

Charming spot. Does Jack the Ripper live here?

*a thud is heard in the upstairs southeast bedroom*

*next comes the sound of flying paper*

*bloodcurdling scream*

Outside, the sun shone with a morbid happiness over the doomed household.

Music paper: Check!
Philosophy paper: Check!
Art paper: Check, check!
Scriptures: *bloody pulpy mess on the floor*

"We were against the British and the Indians who were, like, scalping us."

Art paper...not going well. But I still have four days! I cling to that.

I am so ready to go home and actually have time again to write fiction. Have I mentioned that? Sup-ah. Jasmine and I are going to do a novel in May, which is going to be amusing because I'm having my wisdom teeth out so I'll be on drugs part of the month, and I'm also hopefully going to Disneyland. It'll be good times. I think I'm going to do the Missing Door plot though, and save Eros for Nano. Or vice versa. GAH I don't know.

When I get bored, I rummage in my computer's bowels.

That's right, his bowels. Hahaha yucky. Shinra hasn't been very nice to me lately ANYWAY so I don't feel bad for rummaging around in his organs.

But yeah I just randomly decided that I should gather all my short stories I've written over the years, just so I have them in one place. It was entertaining finding them all. So many goofy ones. Good times though. I'm going to possibly....well....*pokes them* Not really sure if I should try editing them, cuz a lot of them are so old it would be kinda pointless. They were good at the time. Anyways I want to read them all through today. :D wheee.....*wanders off*

You: lighten up. You: big trouble. You: get in the car.

I haven't had time for any fiction, writing or editing, lately because I've got PAPERS! Wheee school. Basically we have one due a week from now till Doomsday. "My son, in doing this you have brought about a chain reaction that could bring about the next Apocalypse!!"
What I've never understood about that quote, is when was the FIRST Apocalypse? Did I miss it? Dang I wanted to take pictures....

Anyway so yeah, papers. My philosophy one is painfully coming along (think blood. Lots of blood.). My art paper is most likely going to be on Michaelangelo, cuz he's on the list and I like him. Scriptures is going to be Chrysostom, Aquinas, and Luther on some as-yet-unknown topic. I thrive on NOT knowing what I'm doing. Lit is going to be on Milton, and whether we should read him or not. I'm a Milton supporter. I support. *nods* Andddd let's see what's left....Science. Yeah. Science is going to be on evolution. At least that one I know exactly what I'm supposed to be doing. w00t.

So yeah. Should be a fun month.

What do you think?

Rough draft of a video project I'm working on, describing my classmates:

We are the Augustinians...
neither living nor dead.
We are not rational
But super-rational
We do not conform...
to the pattern of this world...
nor follow the utilitarian path...
of the intellectually stunted.
We do not settle
for what the world decides is true
Or take what we see
for granted.
We look beneath the surface,
Inside the cover,
Through the glass
We are the Augustinians...
neither living nor dead.
We are not rational
But super-rational
