NaNoWriMo 2013: Ready, Set, Start!

Well, it’s now the first of November. Meaning we are into NaNoWriMo! Yay!

Turns out, I’m not just doing The Trickster’s Trade (though don’t worry, Dad, Mayumi and Darrel are still the priority); I’m also doing a second novel that I’ve been meaning to get more written of for several years now, currently called The Pack. So my personal goal for this November will be to get 100K words – 50K for each of them. (Winning NaNo will be good. Getting to my personal goal – which I’ve accomplished 2 out of the 3 years I’ve won, in terms of word count, will be even better. Actually finishing both books will be a delight! ;))

As mentioned above, TTT has priority, meaning I’ll work on that first each day. (Today, I’ve written 1,904 words on it so far – more than the daily goal – yay me!) Once I’ve got at least the daily goal met, I’ll also work on The Pack, which has been stalled on v7.0, beginning of Chp. 3, for several years now (even longer than TTT, which I got some writing done on a couple of years ago). Both are stories that I really want to tell, and really want to get finished, so NaNo is, of course, the perfect time to work on them.

(No fanfiction words will be counted for NaNo, even if I also write some fanfic – Sanzo presented me with the summary and an image from “Summer’s Pleasure”, the second in my Saiyuki Seasons series [Pt. 1, “Winter’s Treasure”, has 4-1/2 of 7 parts written thus far] last night just before I fell asleep. How do you throttle a character in your head?)

Anyway, that’s the report from the start of NaNoWriMo 2013. Enjoy, all!

[Edit: 23:56 hrs.] Got 364 words written on TP, so that’s a total of 2268 for me today. Yay me! 1.36 times the daily goal! [/End Edit]

‘Later!

Saiyuki Fic: Entangled: Reload

Finally finished my (authorized) sequel to Vathara’s Saiyuki story Entanglements. If you haven’t yet read Entanglements, I highly suggest you read it first, because what happens in Entangled: Reload relies heavily on the events of that story.

Summary: Sequel to Vathara’s “Entanglements”; takes place after Saiyuki: Reload Vol. 9. Hazel overhears the Sanzo-ikkou discussing his presence, and the fight with Ukoku. What are akuma, anyway? And… who is Gonou? And Kenren? Also, Hakkai and Sanzo discuss Heaven, and Heaven’s Plans. (Contains non-specific implications of Sanzo/Hakkai slash.)

Fanfiction Cover Images

So, I mentioned in my last post that I’d put my fanfiction stories up on Archive of Our Own. What I didn’t know until after I’d put my fics up there was that AO3 lets you download fics as ebooks (in epub or mobi formats, no less!). And, hey, I like reading my fics as ebooks. So, rather than having to go through converting them over to that format through iWork’s Pages, I simply downloaded some of my favourite completed ones directly from AO3 in epub format.

Then I thought, Hey, I’ve got a cover pic for Something to Live For already, since I translated it to epub way back… but not for any of the others. So my next decision on what to do was easy – I created covers!

The covers are in gallery format below. And I plan to upload the epubs I’ve got to tag’s Library and Bardd’s Tales to make them available to others to download… sometime. Not immediately, but hopefully not too far in the future.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I think I’m going to go start uploading those particular stories to WattPad as well….

SaiyukiFic: Mine Pt. 2 (Sanzo/Hakkai pre-slash)

And here’s part 2! BTW, I’ll have some 3D renders of some of the “Awww…” scenes up on deviantArt (at tag0.deviantart.com/ ) at some point over the next few days.

Mine, Part 2

SaiyukiFic: Mine Pt. 1 (Sanzo/Hakkai pre-slash)

More fic for those Saiyuki 383 fans!

Okay, this story is definitely all Vathara’s fault. I was re-reading “Entanglements” (great Sanzo/Hakkai story, especially with the weirdness – I recommend it highly!), and I got to the part where Hakkai throws a youkai off Sanzo with a thought of “he’s mine“… and my Hakkai!Bunny went, “Ooooh, I wanna do that!” This was the result.

Mine, Pt. 1

This is shounen-ai/pre-slash Sanzo/Hakkai, rated PG/Teen for Sanzo’s language. If you don’t care for slash, feel free to not read.

Summary: “Why did he do that?” Sanzo had worked hard to make sure that no one liked him….
