katiefoolery: (Get your words out!)
I did something crazy over the weekend.  Insane.  Possibly ill-advised.  Only time will tell...

I pledged to write 200,000 words next year.

Considering I wrote maybe a couple of hundred words this year, this aim seems both hopeless and overly optimistic all at once.  And yet, it comes at almost a perfect time, since I've been thinking a lot about writing lately.  Thinking.  Not doing.  But still.

However, I don't believe I should be the only one engaging in such craziness.  Forget NaNo - a mere month of writing like a possessed thing surviving on caffeine and shared suffering.  This is where it's at.  Don't just write one dodgy novella... write five!  Write a great, long, sprawling saga!  Swim in the stream of consciousness.  Or, uh, actually decide on a project and work on that instead.

Just DO EEEEEEEEEEEET.  Get your words out.

And then blame [livejournal.com profile] theemdash and [livejournal.com profile] sopdetly, because it was all their idea in the first place.

Get your words out!

Also, [livejournal.com profile] crazedturkey did this, so I'm going to do it, too...

katiefoolery: (Back to work)
Oh yes, I am possessed of sheep-like qualities today.  Since it's been over a month since I posted anything here, I figured I'd get back into the LJ world with... a meme.  Of course.

Leave a comment and I will:
a) Tell you why I friended you.
b) Associate you with something: fandom, a song, a colour, a photo, etc.
c) Tell you something I like about you.
d) Tell you a memory I have of you.
e) Ask something I've always wanted to know about you.
f) Tell you my favorite user pic of yours.

Next to come: photos of the new house.

So why not join in?  Even though I don’t do memes.  Nope.  This is merely a figment of your collective imagination.

The Album-Cover Meme.
1) Go to a random page on wiki.
The article title is the name of your band.

2) Go to an equally random page of quotes.
The final words of the last quote on your page are the title of your album.

3) Go to a flickr feed of photos from the last seven days.
The FOURTH image on the page is your album cover. (You can choose to go to here if you prefer a more dynamic, less philosophical cover.)

4) Design your cover. Layout and presentation are up to you.

5) Post your cover, along with these instructions. In the comments your friends will tell you what kind of music you play and the name of the album’s single.

Huzzah for TN61’s debut album, “Enemies Accumulate”!  (We won’t talk about the ill-fated EP.  It never existed.  And would the six people who actually bought it please destroy it and erase all memory of it from their minds?  Thanks.)

Now, what's our first single and what sort of music are we actually playing?
katiefoolery: (Goku is uncertain)
I don’t do memes.  Really  I don’t.


Sometimes they’re just too hilarious to pass up.

On the twelfth day of Christmas, katiefoolery sent to me...
Twelve library technicians drumming
Eleven manners piping
Ten librarians a-leaping
Nine boots dancing
Eight turles a-reading
Seven books a-writing
Six libraries a-spelling
Five bla-a-a-ack books
Four teasing cats
Three charles dickens
Two strange horizons
...and a shounen-ai in an isobelle carmody.
Get your own Twelve Days:

I am beyond amused at the idea of librarians a-leaping all about the library, joyfully tossing the books back onto the shelves.  The reality is that library technicians usually do that - but it appears they’re too busy drumming, so it’s all left to the leaping librarians.

And I do believe that the eight Turleses are all reading the same book: How to Conquer the Universe Using Exotic Fruits.

I love how it begins to make sense, though.  “Seven books a-writing” - oh, if only.  If only the stupid things wrote themselves.  I hope everyone appreciates all these self-writing books I’m giving away.

As enamoured as I am of the reading Turleses (eight of them!  It’s like a dream come true...), I think my favourite is that last one.  It would certainly give Rushton and Dameon something to do when Elspeth abandons both of them to go off and save the world by angsting at it relentlessly.
