11:26 am - Writing goals for November
I am not doing NaNoWriMo this year.

However, I do have some specific writing goals that I hope to meet during the month of November (subject to RL distractions like getting a job, of course).


This week: Keep typing up the last few written scenes of my Supernatural Finishathon fic.

Next week: I'm taking the five weekdays and dedicating them to something very specific: coming up with lots of ideas for possible TV specs.

Monday--Bones
Tuesday--House
Wednesday--Supernatural
Thursday--Medium (possibly Numb3rs)
Friday--Burn Notice, Chuck

November 15th: when my remixthedrabble fic is due. That won't take too long; I'm figuring on an evening of work, like last time I did this ficathon.

Last 2 weeks of November: Go through all the notes I was given on my original feature outline. Sort into "workable, good;" "crap;" and "let's consider this" piles.

Begin reworking the plot/setting/characters into a new and more useful form. I'd like to have a new outline done sometime in December, though it's unlikely I'll be able to hand it to my writer's group till late January at the earliest.

Current Location: limbo
Current Mood: okayokay

It's already Nov. Is that too late to drop in and sign up there?

Naw, I don't think it's too late, it's pretty relaxed.

You are so ambitious, it makes me feel like a slug. Feel free to call me if you need to be distracted from doing anything productive bounce stuff off someone.

My SPN spec suggestion: Dean Winchester and the Carnivorous Watch Cap.

LOL.

I'm attempting to be productive because I'm not working. IMHO, if you had no job, you too could make these ambitious goals. *g* (Now, if I can do half of this I'll be good.)

You know, I was re-watching Thursday's SPN, and for some reason I started thinking about a TS fic that had . . . a floating banshee head, like a balloon . . . I'm sure it was one of Martha's . . . and it made me start thinking that the boys should come into contact with something very Far Eastern in their hunting. Something from Japan, maybe. Or China. And they could investigate in Little Tokyo or Chinatown or something . . . Oh! And if it was Chinatown, Dean could recite lines from his man Jack's movie . . .

Anyway, spec script idea . . .

Hee. Don't get too excited; all I'm doing is coming up with ideas for Supernatural stories. I want to write for television someday, and a spec script for an existing show is how the studios learn that I'm a good writer and that they might do well to hire me. :-)

But since I am working on Each Should Carry, too, you may look forward to that.

I'm too bad with titles so don't be upset if i forgot some *sigh* But i remember the actual story :)

The thing is it's plenty of SN fics around but small amouте ща them are readable if you want to read something that not porn (i have no problems with porn but if you read couple of those fics - you read all of them cos they're too cliche-ish) or wincest. So it's hard for me to find something decent to read. That's why i'm glad to find someone i didn't read yet :)

Oh, yeah, that is totally true. There's a lot of good gen fic in this fandom, but it's really tough to find, and tougher to find the good stuff in with the badly written stuff. (And I am not fond of wincest either.)

There's a gal I know (dotfic who keeps a list of SPN fic recs on her del.icio.us list; most of the stories she has bookmarked are gen, or at least wincest-free. Don't know if you'd find stuff there you haven't read, but that's where I find a lot of good stories.

Yes. Sometimes it's so sad when the idea is good but writing... not so much... *sigh*

Oh, thanx for the link! I'll bookmark it and see what i can find there.
I've read wincest when it was my first year in this fandom and it was new. But with time passes i found it constrained to the whole story - cos usually writers choose to describe only one main emotion - boy's love when there are the whole sea of mains emotions (if you see what i mean) so i was bored with the idea and think of it as dead-end in fanfiction here so i stop reading.
