My husband is a loon.

Richard's opinion on my NaNoWriMo novel: "This thing's been going on for HOW MANY pages and they still haven't got it on? You're crap at writing porn, you are!"

I had to point out that it isn't supposed to be porn :) It's a friendship story that eventually becomes a love story, but it takes them a while to realise that they both feel the same way: what with all the Evil Demons Trying to Destroy The World inbetween.

Also, he didn't like the scene I was writing. I explained to him that I couldn't talk because my characters were busy having an argument and I needed to get it down before I forgot what they said. "You're creating stress!" he told me. I said "What, so you think I should write a story where they meet and are happy and fluffy forever until one of them Collapse )

In other news, I really need to stop writing this story backwards: scene 4 followed by scene 3 followed by scene 2 followed by scene 1, because then I have to go back to what I've already written and make continuity corrections. It's most annoying, but I just can't seem to help it. I write what I'm in the mood for and what the characters tell me to write. There're a couple of scenes right at the very beginning of the story that are absolutely plot-essential and which I cannot be bothered with at all, so I'm likely to get to the end of the 50,000 words without having written them. Ah well. No one said it had to be coherent or complete :D
Oblivion

Why StellarWind and I love each other, Part 953

An irc log of great silliness, in which I made a typo, and then we crossed the memes.
Meme 1: Dot Dot Dot a.k.a. a Dramatic Reading of a very bad video game review (by someone who didn't realise that the game was a parody).
Meme 2: History Lessons a.k.a. THE BEST story on skyrimkinkmeme, not even slightly sexual, and the reason why I fall over squealing at the word "TEN!". Oh yes, and another spoiler for the ending of the Oblivion Main Quest.

I don't expect this log to make sense to anyone other than us, but I am Recording it for Posterity nonetheless, because it makes me laugh. Collapse )
