A nice, friendly reminder from the Pan Pacific Defence Corp, helpfully pinched from Tumblr...

shouldn't you be...

Yes, I'm doing [livejournal.com profile] mini_nanowrimo again. Still 100 words a day - mainly because on some days (like yesterday!) getting over that magical triple figure goal is an achievement in itself!

Still, I'm over 1,000 words for the month so far, so that registers as a win!

* * *

There have been movies watched. I want to discuss one of them but as it doesn't open until this weekend in the US, I shall keep stumn. If you can work out what I mean and want to discuss it already - drop me a line.

And I will talk about the films I saw at the London Film Festival at some point!

* * *

So, that's me - how are you guys?
beckymonster: Becky icon (mini_nanowrimo_success)


I was supposed to be writing 3,000 in that month - overachieved much?! But it's taken me this long to post - which kind of balances everything out;) I will be sharing the 'fruits' of those labours over the next couple of days... so consider that fair warning!

[livejournal.com profile] xmenbigbang - rough draft is IN. It now stands at over 27,000 words. I have a final finish date that due to circs (remind me to update about 'Mick') is a bit earlier than others but... hey! I can and WILL make it!

*

[livejournal.com profile] secret_mutant - I'm going to bash out the first draft of this, this week. I have a sneaky suspicion that my giftee has re-written their 'Dear Secret Mutant' letter. Not that I mind but I had a 'good' ending planned using the details from the letter I first read.

Oh well - I have a title, I have an idea, I have analogies... I need to get on with it!

*

[livejournal.com profile] yuletide - I've downloaded (LEGALLY!) canon to rewatch. Does that count? Also, I think I have an idea and a title. These are important! Now I just have to write the bugger!

*

So, that's me - how are you guys?
beckymonster: Becky icon (general_cat pffft!)
[livejournal.com profile] mini_nanowrimo pledge - 100 words. Written - 561 words. Getting there... eventually!

* * *



Warm Bodies trailer - which looks rather delightful. The book is in my 'to read' pile but now am conflicted as to whether to read it next or wait 'til I've seen the film...

Thoughts?

You can't send wheelbarrows to Nigeria and you can't send pairs of shoes to South Africa. No, I don't know why either!

* * *

PSA - for those of you who gave up on Delicious during the great migration of last year... they've started listing the full RL names of users as part of their account. Such as 'Beckymonster'/'Becky REDACTED FAMILY NAME'.

Ahahahah no. So, yes, my account is no more. Separation of 'church' and 'state' just isn't for elections you know!

* * *

Talking of church and state - Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom (and part time Bond Girl) offers her congratulations to Barak Obama on his re-election as President of the USA - good to 2016 or until independence is revoked. ('tis a joke but just in case... it's a joke!)

Just don't make us regret the independence thing kaithanxbai!

* * *

[livejournal.com profile] mini_nanowrimo pledge - 100 words. Written 734 words. I think I can see the ending but I'm not too sure as I need a telescope to make it out.
beckymonster: Becky icon (movies_wall*e)
[livejournal.com profile] mini_nanowrimo pledge - 100 words. Written today - 1116 words. Overachieve much?

* * *

I may very well be the only person on most of my flist's friends page who will not talk about that wee election thingee. Mainly because, you know, British and all that. Anyhow - in the meantime - watch this. You can thank me later!

[livejournal.com profile] mini_nanowrimo - 401 words. Wanted more but it's Monday,

* * *

To be filed under 'I'll Believe It When I See It!'

Matthew Vaughn is RUMOURED to be in talks to direct Star Wars: Episode VII

I didn't talk much about Vaughn leaving XMFC - because I was praying to the Goddess of Geeks that we'd get someone 'good' to take his place. I still have the horrors over X-Men: The Last Stand - six years on, it *still* sucks like a Dyson!
Someone must have heard as Bryan Singer stepped up to the plate - someone who's work I like a hell of a lot (And if he can pull Sir Ian's 'Magneto' suit out of storage and get it tailored to fit Fassbender - all the better but that's just me). So coloured me a happy monster. Also with the other knight talking about returning... could be good!

Again, it's all rumours, lies and conjecture - but if he goes from Mutants to that Galaxy, Far, Far away... best of luck to him. He has the chops, can handle the FX and big casts but the pressure?

Hmmmm....
beckymonster: Becky icon (general_headsplode!)
[livejournal.com profile] mini_nanowrimo total for the day - 1263 words. Yes, it's supposed to be 100 words a day but there *will* be days when I'll just scrape across that barrier... Just not today!

Moved some of my icons over to my dreamwidth account. I'm Beckymonster over there. Not that I'm planning to move from here anytime soon; it's just a back up of this account at present. No 'original' content. Make your own jokes about what you see here;)
I must be one of the only people on LJ that's relatively okay with the new friends 'feed'. I prefer black text on a white background, the neverending scroll doesn't break my computer... Would prefer that some things are left well alone but not my call to make.

Even so - the whole 'no more paid accounts' hoohaa did peturb me but I'll wait and see on that matter. Said it before, say it again.... I leave when they carry me out!

I have an idea for my [livejournal.com profile] secret_mutant story. I want to do some research first but I think it's a goer. Will try to get the first draft done once I've handed in the 'requisite' amount for [livejournal.com profile] xmenbigbang. It won't be finished but at least it will be over the 80% mark!

Add in getting a number of boring but necessary errands and it's been a productive day.
beckymonster: Becky icon (DW_dalek_fanfic)
[livejournal.com profile] mini_nanowrimo pledge: 100 words. Written: 815 words. My [livejournal.com profile] xmenbigbang story won't write itself, y'know!

Talking of which - it is possibly the 'longest' story I've ever written as of today. Nearly 20,500 words written. Obviously, I'll call it when I finally post it but there is still a ways to go.

* * *

Some of you may be wondering what that great disturbance in the Force is.... The [livejournal.com profile] yuletide assignments went out and... although I was *not* expecting to be matched on the fandom I have been... I think I'll be able to do it justice. Although I reserve the right to flail like no one's business between now and hand in.

IF YOU, OH WONDERFUL YULEGOAT ARE READING THIS my letter is here and remember, whatever you write, I am bound to love it, so long as you've enjoyed creating it. Remember - optional details are optional!

* * *

So, that's me - how are you guys?

[livejournal.com profile] mini_nanowrimo pledge - 100 words.

Written - 819 words. Alas, I can't carry them over for the 'lean' days ;)

* * *

So, sounding off:

[livejournal.com profile] xmenbigbang - 19593 words so far. 'First draft' due on 12th - should make that with room to spare, just glad it doesn't have to be *finished*

[livejournal.com profile] secret_mutant - 0 words. I have my prompts, still trying to figure out which one to write. It doesn't help that there are two I could do....

[livejournal.com profile] yuletide - sign ups are closed. Just waiting for my assignment and second guessing what it could be in the meantime. I won't get it right, but hey! it's fun to try;)
beckymonster: Becky icon (ncis_YES!)
I've written het fic. NC-17 rated het fic. I'm feeling rather faint from the shock.

Total words for the day - 596 words. Alas, the muse is either lying down in a darkened room with a damp flannel over zie's eyes or watching The Great British Bake Off.

I'm not quite sure which and whether I *really* want to know.

* * *

In other news - [livejournal.com profile] mini_nanowrimo is open for business for the *cough* year running. I did a count up in my head of all the years I've gone in for this and well... I scared myself.
As usual - rules are simple. 100+ words a day for 30 days. Speaking from experience - somedays, it's the easiest thing going. Other days... it's not pretty.

Even so, it's a *good* challenge - especially if you're doing something like [livejournal.com profile] yuletide...

10,459 words being the final count for the month. Not bad for someone who volunteered to write 100 words a day for 30 days;)

*

In other news - tantalisingly close but no banana on so many things. Will report back when it makes a bit more sense. If anyone is wondering why LJ has been so p*ssy last couple of days - Russian elections taking place with presidential elections due early in 2012. These events are *not* co-incidences, that I am sure. Here until they drag my sorry arse out of here!

Also, [livejournal.com profile] torn_eledhwen - still on for Wednesday?

Last day of [livejournal.com profile] mini_nanowrimo for 2011 - 416 words. I have no *idea* what my total for the month is - apart from A LOT. But I did it and I am hoping to keep up the good work as there is still much to be done.

*

As already noted - I've only seen three films this month - reviews will be forthcoming but in happier news, December should be more 'fruitful'. Not least because I've booked to go see Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol at BFI IMAX just after Christmas. Three good guesses - and the first two don't count!.

Also in 'It-was-kinda-obvious-but-thanks-for-the-confirmation!' news 20th Century Fox confirm sequels to both Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes and X-Men: First Class. Naturally there might have been a very loud 'woo hoo' over the latter.

CanNOT imagine why...;)

Ahem! Today's totals:

[livejournal.com profile] mini_nanowrimo target - 100 words

Today's total (towards my [livejournal.com profile] secret_mutant fic) - 412 words \o/.

So - yeah, good news: I've passed the 500 word minimum! The bad news: I've barely *started* writing!

Oh and the [livejournal.com profile] yuletide assignments are due anyday... we shall not speak of the fact that I've picked out three people for possible treats.

I would say 'Send Help' but I am too far gone for that;)
