My mentor hasn't been at work for the last few days, and my supervisor is very busy most of the time, so I spent a lot of thursday chasing her down to ask for more work, and a lot of yesterday chasing her down to ask for more work. Because usually my mentor gives me work, and she she's usually at her desk even when she's busy, so...

Chained, aka the vampire anti-romance, started working the way I wanted it to work, through figuring out that the main character needed some agency.

And for no reason at all, I want chocolate.

That some of the write-ins on Good Game: SP say that if they don't get help they'll turn into a n00b (or a n000000000000b)

That I've seen enough of Good Game: SP to know that.

That this unit has sort of become the ABC3* unit, and it's mostly my fault. Mostly as in, my sister mostly hasn't objected to it so far.

*It's kind of the kiddy channel. But it had the Iron Man cartoon on, I couldn't help it!


I've been asked to do an interview for a business admin traineeship. My current thoughts on that are- if there's money, I'd like it if they want me, if there's not... I'm less sure. I've done admin as a volunteer; I don't know whether it would be worth giving up the conservation and land management for it. Even for job prospects, if the market is that competitive, though I guess I won't pass the interview if they didn't think I could work in the industry.


I'm currently on school holidays. And waiting for us to get some furniture delivered. We're getting a futon couch and a kitchen table with chairs, as well as each of us getting a bookshelf and me getting a set of drawers.


I have been writing, sort of. I've been editing Chained and being not-entirely-happy at it because it- you know. It's not as good as I think it should be. It's not even finished- I planned to edit through to where I was up to, but now I think it starts too quickly and this other bit could be better, and all.

Short stories are so much easier than all of that.

My sister came over yesterday so we could go out for dinner for her birthday. I got her the dvd of How to Train your Dragon, which we watched last night. It's a really good movie. On wednesday me and dad and her went bowling, and in one game she scored a spare by bowling a miss and then bowling a strike. It's kind of a bizarre thing to watch. And I sucked worse than usual.

I cleaned my room a bit yesterday. I swept up some dirt clods caused by small doggies bringing their muddy feet into my bedroom, and moved my stuff around so I had more room for dvds in my dvd shelf, and moved some of my books.

Homework is kind of... not getting anywhere fast. As in, I'm not doing as much work on it as I should be. Also, I hate Internet Explorer and want it to die. It aaaaate my beautiful web design :( ...I think I may have found a workaround. And not a fiddly one. Yay! *hopes it works*

Writing is going well, as usual, but has been.. unusually interesting. It looks like this draft is going to finish at the 25k mark. I know there's things I need to go back and put in, but I'm not sure if I have 50k worth. The proof will be in the pudding, I guess. And if I don't, I'm sure I can fit in another sub plot somewhere.

And you know you have issue when the browser it is working in is Explorer.

And I just basically have a heap of homework that I need to do.

I think I finished the draft of Chained, at 19,500 words. And that's okay, because I was missing chunks of plot and wasn't working from an outline. But I have one now. Mostly.

Icon love!

I've just stoled two icons across from LJ. So I have iconsss!

I was up until 11 writing a scene that's going in the next draft of Chained, so I didn't count it towards my word count, but it was so perfect I couldn't leave it until it was done. Currently at 17000 or 18000 words, I can't remember which.
