*So last year, I tried to read 100 books in the year, and only made it to 60. This year, I'm not going to get ahead of myself. I'll stick to the fifty book challenge, and if I read more, then that's just a bonus! Like last year, only books I am reading for the first time go on the list I changed my mind. I'm going to add books I've read before, but if I read them more than once in the year, the second time doesn't count. I'm still have some books left over from last year, so I'm going to try and finish them first!

*Well. It's July and I've already hit 40 books, so I thought that now would be a good time to change my goal. I've signed myself up for 75 books on Goodreads, and depending on my status come October, I may change it to 100. We'll see. I'm having a lot of fun and it's been great to read so many different books. Cross your fingers for me that I make it to 100 this year!

Last year, one of my resolutions was to watch as many horror movies as I could. I think I did pretty well, but this year I'd like to include ALL the movies I watch. Any movie I watch will go on this list, whether I've seen it before or not. If I watch the same movie twice... well, obviously the second/third/tenth viewings don't count. Hopefully, I'll be able to start filling it up soon enough! As for reviews... eh, we'll see.

SUP GUISE. I did this silly thing and signed up for like a BAZILLION AND ONE big bangs over the next couple of months (as an artiste~ -aka mixer-) so I thought I'd pop my 'schedule' up here so I don't forget any important dates. I'm colour-coding things to make it look professional and shiny. I already have a hand-written version of this hanging up on the back of my bedroom door (and I had WAAAAAAAAY too much fun making it. Markers are awesome!)

*12/8/11 - sooooooooo someone invited me to join the Journey Big Bang... how could I resist?! I can't believe how many I'm signed up to do, seriously...

**14/8/11 - someone has to stop me from signing up for these. Seriously. Stop me. This is getting ridiculous. Just found the bigbang_mixup, which is TOTALLY up my alley. I HAVE to do it!!! And then, well, I saw the link for the Original Big Bang.... God help me. Seriously. I'm going to get it all done though, I promise. It'll just be a challenge :/

***20/8/11 - this is getting ridiculous. Historical Big Bang, yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah.

****24/10/11 - it was bound to happen. With Nanowrimo and life being all crazy and stuff, I'm dropping out of a couple of these. Le sigh :(



Read more... )

Aaaaaaaaand here we have ANOTHER new years resolution I plan to commit to this year - reading 100 50 100 books. (I've joined [livejournal.com profile] 50bookchallenge  , THIS IS REALLY HAPPENING!) This will include the stuff on my new ebook reader, library books and books I own. The only rule for myself is that I CANNOT have read them before. I want to read completely new stuff this year!

Wish me luck!

One of my new year's resolution this year was to watch as many horror films as I could possibly manage. I didn't give myself a specific number I had to watch, because I didn't want to put too much pressure on myself. Horror is my favourite genre, so I want to have fun. I spent awhile debating how I was going to go about this, but then some lovely darling on [livejournal.com profile] ontdcreepy  linked to this. TA-DA!

I've decided that this post will just list the movies I've watched, and the year they were released in, and the date I watched them. Once a week or so, I'll do a post about the ones I've watched recently, because they'll be ridiculous and I'll need to laugh about them :D LOL ONE DAY I WILL GET AROUND TO REVIEWS.

it begins... )

(If Firefox crashes again I'm going to HULK OUT. Seriously.)

Okay. So. I'm a member of [livejournal.com profile] fanficrants, and I also read with mild horror [livejournal.com profile] weepingcock. While going through recent entries on both these communities, I got to thinking about things, which led me to think about writing, which led me to think that I should really get around to doing that writing resources post I've been planning to do.*

So here you go. They're split into different categories, and there are links**, and titles and a little blub about each site so you actually know what you're clicking on. There's also a category called 'other' because I wasn't sure where to stick those links.*** If anybody reading this had anything to add, I would really appreciate it.

Now, I'm not saying that any of these sites are going to be helpful to every writer - I don't find all of them helpful myself - but some of them are excellent starting points. Also, consider this list of doom a work in progress - I'll add and remove things as I see fit.

* Instead of the massive giant rec list I've also been planning to do. Ahhh, procrastination.
** Also, I read and write harry potter fanfiction, so you might find that some of the links are geared towards that fandom.
*** They probably belong under something, but I'm so frustrated with this blasted thing that I gave up.
