SECOND. My horse came second, and it was literally down to a photo finish. And for a good minute I was screaming like a banshee because I thought Red Cadeaux was in the lead, and it was and then NOT. UGH.


Yes I am procrastinating but in my defence it's the Melbourne Cup! The whole of Australia practically stops for this thing, so I don't feel that bad.

1753 words and counting....

Good luck to everyone participating this year - GET WRITING! See you in December!*

*or rather, see you when I get sick of writing/start going mad/am procrastinating. Sigh.

oh_deanna: (mine // crying)
I'm writing a Sims 2 story (temporarily called Counci Thirteen until I come up with a better name), and in the middle of writing a scene for one of the later chapters I just killed off a character. And I'm crying. Tears streaming down my face, etc.

I've had this death planned since the beginning but oh god. I did not expect to get this upset. To make matters worse, I'm listening to Timshel by Mumford and Sons, and it's just making me cry more.

I know a fair few of you are also writers - do you guys cry when/if you kill off a character? What was the emotional you've ever gotten when writing about a character?

R.I.P. character who shall remain anonymous for now. You fought a good fight.

I completely forgot about this meme until I was going through the folders in my memories and stumbled across it. I'm going to try and finish it this time, I swear!

Day Four - Your least favourite female character?

I'm going to go with the expected response and say Dolores Umbridge. Everytime she pops up in a chapter, I literally grind my teeth and grimace. She's such a horrible villain - maybe not in the same way as Lord Voldemort is, but enough so that she gives me the heebie jeebies.

previous days )

In other news - I've been playing my Sims 2 uberhood nearly every day. Well. Okay I haven't actually been 'playing', but I've finished making over all the maxis characters, including the university ones and several resurrected sims ;) I decided at the last minute to add the Life Stories sims I downloaded from trippytexan's page, and I'm making them over/adding them to various hoods at this very moment. When I'm done with them, I'll start posting batches of the maxis makeover shots (though I might wait a bit longer, my internet is running so slow, it's incredibly frustrating).

ALSO. I was tossing around ideas for photoshoots and fun pictures I can take, and I came up with this idea. And it was meant to be this little thing and then suddenly there were 25 pictures and a whole backstory and then I started getting more ideas about how to tie it in the megahood. So. I will also be posting that in a couple of days. A hint - it has to do with the supernatural sims and my backstories for each of the different types.

Hope you're all well xx

So I downloaded plasticbox's Baskerville hood on modthesims, and have spent a couple of months re-decorating and filling it with Sims. I originally was just planning on using it as a breeding hood, but then I started my nanowrimo project (a zombie/b-movie type of thing) and decided that Baskerville was the perfect location. So random Sims became characters in the novel; residential and community lots became important settings and owned businesses.

Here we have the town proper:

A sleepy little town in the desert, Baskerville has agreed to allow Gerry Newsom to film the cult classic "Then They Were Dead" among their homes. What secret did Gerry and his assistant bring into town with them? Will the Baskvervillians regret giving their permission? And what exactly is the government doing skulking around town?

character introductions this way -13 pictures under the cut- )

And that's just the first lot that I've had time to take photos of. More to come, I suppose.

(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.
