Author sign--ups are now open at DCU-Bang and Marvel_Bang. I think I'll pass this year, the first time since 2011 that I won't have a Big Bang on my plate, but I'm pretty busy with my Bruce/Dick Bingo Card, anyway. So far, out of 9 squares I have 3 filled/posted, 2 in the queue to be posted, writing No. 6, ideas for No. 7 and 8, and no idea for No. 9. :)

I'm hoping to get back to some of my Han/Luke stuff again, and am pleased to see that METV will be airing the original Battlestar Galactica starting June 3rd. Could be some fresh inspiration there! I've got a few Clark/Bruce stories in mind, too.

Hmm, looks like DC is taking up my time, but I'm sure Marvel will sneak in there, too. Some Steve/Bucky? A little Natasha/Pepper? ;)

Stay tuned!

Natasha’s eyes closed. She could still hear the men in the kitchen, arguing good-naturedly while washing pots and pans, loading plates into the dishwasher, and setting the dining room to rights. )

Golden September turned to yellow-orange-and-scarlet October as the days and nights grew cool and there was frost on the pumpkins, at least in the fields outside the city. The World’s Fair would close before November with the promise of re-opening in the spring, its popularity encouraging a second season. )

Cars glided by, looking like something out of an old gangster film with running boards and gleaming black paint. People walked by leisurely, men in double-breasted suits and fedoras and women in dresses with shoulder pads and smart hats over elaborately-coiffed hair. Boys in short pants ran down the sidewalk carrying stickball bats while girls in floral dresses and saddle shoes pushed doll carriages. )

The wind was cold as clouds passed across the face of the moon, momentarily blocking its silvery light. The street was empty of pedestrians and only a few cars drove by as it was fifteen minutes before midnight. A display of grinning Jack O’Lanterns glowed at the entrance to the park a few blocks away. )

Writing Rambles

bradygirl_12: (bat o'lantern 2)
How typical is this? I'm just about to write the final paragraph of the story I'm planning to submit to my 2016 DCU Fic/Art Halloween Challenge, and I decide I've got a better angle and now I have to do a major re-write! Fortunately, it's not a super-long story, but it will delay my posting. I know, you're all waiting with bated breath, right? ;) Better that I came up with the new idea now instead of after posting, eh?

Most of my writing efforts this month will revolve around my [livejournal.com profile] marvel_bang story, mostly prep for AO3 posting and figuring out how many chapters I can fit into one entry on LJ. I also have to write out my master post for the announcement on [livejournal.com profile] marvel_bang, but I'm probably going to use the summary I've already used, anyway.

Otherwise I have three Halloween ideas I'm juggling, the one mentioned above, another DC Comics idea, and a Marvel Comics idea. My other DC plot bunny may end up using my Late Entries Policy grace period, as I'm still kind of letting the idea simmer in my cauldron for now. I've already started work on the Marvel idea.

Funny how I'm getting all these seasonal ideas when we're supposed to get a heat wave this week. Thankfully cold weather will be back by next weekend!

Hope your Halloween Muses are spooking you, too! ;)

Natasha deftly cracked the walnuts with an old-fashioned nutcracker, her slender hands appearing delicate but powerful. Every crack of the nutcracker sounded loud, Pepper’s eyes flickering at each sharp sound. She continued to read. )

The [livejournal.com profile] marvel_bang and [livejournal.com profile] dcu_bang will be opening soon for artists to claim stories (this Saturday at noon EDT). Stories are up now for early perusal, so if you're interested, check 'em out! Marvel's are here and DC's are here. Marvel has 35 stories and DC has 5 this year.

Funny how Muses work. My [livejournal.com profile] marvel_bang started slowly, even though I had the beginning and end and some scenes I wanted to put into the middle. For whatever reason, despite my deadlines, it was slow going at first, to the point that I wondered if I would have to drop out (which would have been a first for me!) but this past week has been all Big Bang, and I should have the last chapter finished this week. *fingers crossed* I did have to submit my manuscript at the final check-in at 80% instead of 100%, which is a first for me. Still, it's been a lot of fun and I look forward to seeing if an artist claims my story today. :)

Creative Energy!!!

bradygirl_12: (han--luke (sickbay))
I woke up this morning with a lot of creative energy, so I got down to work right away after my walk to take advantage of it before it disappeared! :)

I FINALLY broke the logjam in my profic, which has been sitting around for a couple of months. I couldn't even force myself to write a sentence a day on it because I was completely stymied on the direction I wanted it to go. Now I've been busy writing all morning, yay, me! :)

I also got going again on my [livejournal.com profile] marvel_bang story and am making good progress with that, as well as a Han/Luke story that was stalled forever. I also have a short Han/Luke idea that I might write soon which has been in the back of my mind for awhile.

A new Clark/Bruce idea paired with Steve/Diana could be written up soon, or at least sometime this summer. My priorities this summer have to be the profic and the [livejournal.com profile] marvel_bang, but I like dashing off short pieces to keep things fresh.

The Raven And The Nightingale might end up shelved for the summer, but there's always research to do for that one that will be ready when I go back to writing it.

Who wants to see another seaside story this summer? :)

Enjoy your day, luvs! Sit on your deck or patio, listen to the birds sing, and connect with Nature. Your Muses will come back if they've stalled! :)

I signed up for the [livejournal.com profile] marvel_bang! :)

Frankly, I thought I was going to bypass any Big Bang this year as I had no ideas as the sign-up dates approached. Wasn't that big a deal since I've been writing Big Bangs since 2011 and nothing was materializing for the [livejournal.com profile] dcu_bang and [livejournal.com profile] marvel_bang, so I decided to see if I could get inspiration from Captain America 3: Civil War. Even after that it was sketchy but with a couple of days before sign-ups closed, I got inspiration! :)

The Raven And The Nightingale is stalled after I thought it was revving up again, but such is the way of things. I think I'll do some more research while waiting to write again. It's just too much fun to relegate to never getting out of the notebook stage. :)

I've got two birthday stories I owe and happily am working on one and have an idea for the other.

I've got some stories that are still in the notebook stage. One's a Jurassic Park tale that I wrote last year in a flurry of inspiration after seeing the first film again and those fun 'n' sexy scientists, Alan and Ian! :)

I've got a Steve/Bucky tale inspired by Age Of Ultron that's just been sitting in the Unsatisfied pile. I may try and fix that up.

And I've been editing a Clark/Bruce story told from the POV of Lois, one of my favorite things. :)

Still working on my Han/Luke comfort food fic. Comfort food: a fic that has no deadline and is generally fairly long so that I can enjoy the writing with no pressure. Even my own Challenges and Big Bangs have slight pressure. You have to work on a deadline fic while comfort food is worked on when hungry, er, in the mood. :)

I might even take a crack at the [livejournal.com profile] clexmas Spring Fling! Reverse Bang. I hadn't intended to but the art submissions are pretty intriguing, so who knows? That's in the 'Maybe' queue. :)

So it looks like my [livejournal.com profile] marvel_bang story will be a summer project. Maybe I can spin a few seaside tales this summer, too. :)
bradygirl_12: (captain america (shield))
Now that the has been properly pimped, we turn our attention to the [livejournal.com profile] marvel_bang! Eagerly anticipating Captain America 3: Civil War? Finally ready to write that Steve/Bucky epic that's been nagging at you since Captain America 2: The Winter Soldier? Checking in at Heartbreak Hotel for the Steve/Tony split? Trying to figure out the new world of Marvel Comics since the Incursions erased the status quo? Then head over to [livejournal.com profile] marvel_bang and sign up! You've got until May 15th, authors! :)

Once the movie's out in more countries, expect a TON of inspired sign-ups! :)

Author’s Note: I had this story idea before Thanksgiving but naturally nothing coalesced until the day after! Enjoy! :)

Steve sighed. He had not envisioned spending Thanksgiving in Baltimore’s run-down neighborhoods, but Sam had gotten a tip worth checking out. They had split up to cover more ground, and Steve was now trudging through garbage-strewn back alleys dressed in faded jeans, an old blue T-shirt and ancient brown leather jacket. )

Hi, luvs!

If you haven't voted yet on the 2015 Halloween Challenge Poll, please do so in the next few days. I'd like to get more feedback! :)

The stories are up for artist claiming at the DCU_Bang. Mine is one of the offerings. :)

I've sketched out a rough outline for Book III of The Raven And The Nightingale. It'll be my ultimate relaxation project as I've got plenty of time. I haven't even finished posting Book II yet! :)

I've got a handful of fanfics in the queue that will gradually see posting. They're in various stages but should be coming close to finished, whether in first draft form or revision stage. Most is DC stuff but there's some Marvel in there, too. And some Jurassic Park! :)

Hi!

Hi, luvs!

Just a quick reminder that the 2015 Dick Grayson Fic/Art Diamond Anniversary Challenge is in Month 2 of its 3-month official submission period. :)

I signed up for the [livejournal.com profile] dcu_bang. Sign-ups are open for it and the [livejournal.com profile] marvel_bang. Maybe Avengers 2: Age Of Ultron will get you inspired! ;)
