Experiences in the land of fanfic

This is a totally out of character blog, but I was interested enough and motivated enough to actually write alot on this.

I've been trying to write a fanfic, my first one, for about a year now. And let me tell you, it is F-ing hard! I suspect partly because of the way I'm approaching it, partly because I'm using characters that I didn't create in a world I didn't create, and partly because I just haven't written anything in awhile.

Like writing a trilogy and starting with the third book...Collapse )

New layout up on Tribe Leader, which means new wallpaper

Finally made a layout I love, and so had to make a wallpaper of it too. It's Lex and Amber again, so sorry if you don't get excited about them. I don't actually see them having a relationship, but the strength that each of them carries would have made an interesting combo.

Here it is, and don't forget to check out the layout at Tribe Leader!

See, this is all Sarate's fault. She posts some silly, ridiculous comment about how she misses my wallpapers, which is stupid of course cause they suck, but then I want to make one. Dammit.

Anyway, here's one of Lex, Zandra, and especially Ryan. He's kind of been intriguing me lately. All innocent and melancholy and not very bright, but feeling everything and wanting to be good.

What's going on with Tribe Leader

Okay, so here's the status of Tribe Leader if you're looking for it and can't find it.

Great news! Sarate's host, Jerilee at Not Without You, kindly offered to host the site since I can't afford to shell out the money for the hosting fees anymore. So the site can currently be accessed from HERE. I've transferred everything over already. I'm trying to see if I can keep my domain name, but that will depend on whether Jerilee's hosting package allows it.

Unfortunately, I deleted the forwarding to the domain, so if you've checked tribe-leader.com it says nothing's there. I'm trying to work on it, but I don't know if I can get it set back up. You probably don't care about all these details, lol, but I thought I'd share cause they're very much on my mind right now. Like, driving me crazy on my mind. If a hosting package doesn't allow addon domains, can you still get a domain to point to a subdomain? These are things that keep me up at night.

But, I'm not going anywhere and in fact have already added more screencaps! YAY!

Don't you really hate it when you've been doing something one way for a really long time and then you find out there was an easier way all along?  Well, I just discovered an auto screencapping program and I want to slap myself in the head!  WTF.  I've been making tons of screencaps for over two years the absolute hardest freaking way possible!

I knew of them before of course, but I doubted the quality of them.  Then I discovered one that you can alter the frame rate on.  Which basically means you could cap every single f-ing frame if you wanted to and it would take less than 10 minutes.  Of course, that would be crazy cause that's like 50,000 frames, but still.  You can cap every 5th frame, or whatever.

Here's a wallpaper of the new layout I'm putting up at tribe-leader.com. I took the idea from Annie's icon of Amber and Lex with the same pictures. She did a brilliant job with it, and I wanted to do a larger version. I've made a 1024x768 and 1280x800 version, as well as a differently colored version. Layout should be up in a week or so...

I've been addicted to the Exclusion layer lately. Probably OD'd on it too :D

I've added a few new obsessions lately, which has surprised me. In an effort to avoid my research and bibliography homework, and just to keep track:
