Day 6: 1063 words, and I'm gonna have to chew over the next part of this rewrite (Castelia City and the theft of Bianca's Munna), since I'd already totally rewritten Our Hero's first encounter with Ghetsis and consequently his reasons for thinking he can just ask for it back.

And I'm still chickening out of that one sex scene I was wanting to do a few days ago. Dammit!

Day 4: 1300 words. Goal met with room to spare.

In which our hero catches a Venipede. Awkwardly. And has a mildly angsty chat with Cheren. And I chicken out of a sex scene (what's the point of writing dirty fanfiction if I'm just going to chicken out of the sex scenes?!). And I've started a little on the next but I know where that's going so it's a decent stopping point for tonight.

The guy who asked me out last night... I probably overreacted. So I'm going to contact him a few times over the coming weeks to be polite and friendly and let him know that I'm not really looking for romance but I appreciated the conversation.

In the meantime, I'm going to look for a D&D group to join because I really need IRL friends before my faith in humanity atrophies and I turn into Cyrus and try to destroy the universe because people scare me.

Day 3: 850 words and then a guy at the coffee bar asked me about myself and I freaked the fuck out and could not write any more. Goal not met.

What do real people talk about, anyway? I can't exactly explain that I'm writing dirty Pokemon fanfiction.

Day 2: 550 words between 1 and 2 AM this morning, 775 words this evening, along with some minor tweaks and such that I didn't count closely. 1325 total, which more than made my goal.

In which our hero angsts, learns by eavesdropping that he's lousy in the sack, angsts, gets told off for talking to N again and accused of preying on N's seeming mental instability, angsts, and catches a Pidove.

Set myself a lower goal this year for NaNoWriMo since I'm kind of sort of doing job training and trying to get my first couple of sales this November and maybe looking for a seasonal job. All the same, I feel like writing every night will help me cool down after stressing over work and let me feel like I've accomplished something.

Goal is 1,000 words per day. I'm revising/rewriting a plot-with-porn Pokemon (Nuzlocke Challenge Pokemon Black) fanfic of mine that is probably never going to see the light of day.

Day 1: 600 words, goal not met but I did break some of my writer's block for the Nacerene City encounter with N, so I'm willing to call it good enough.
tinfoil_hats: FUS RO DRAW (fus ro draw)
Hey, look, I actually can draw.

... Except for that ear. But otherwise, I'm pretty happy with how he turned out.

Someone who never played 5th-gen: "He looks like an ecofag. And effeminite." (misspelling theirs)
Someone who has: "That's... a pretty good description, actually."

Decided last night to break my brain and try downloading the GIMP again.

Holy shit, I could actually navigate it this time. I spent some time tonight working on reconstructing the lost Veilstone updates of GLINDA's Hard Mode.

Behold, Edgar the Ralts Kirlia. Think of it as a sneak peek. (and yes, it's a dude)

I have been up since 8:30 AM bouncing off the walls. I did not go to bed until 3 AM last night, so I'm kind of wondering what devil I unwittingly bargained with for all of this energy.

Thus far today, I have:
- Applied for jobs
- Searched for summer housing
- Hung out in the student union until I was bored
- Walked around campus twice
- Walked around local businesses hassling for job openings
- Archive binge on Black Adventures
- Wrote a (locked) LiveJournal essay about how Ghetsis is the single most evil character in all of Pokemon canon or fandom-- he abuses his son, kicks dog-types, and has terrible fashion sense-- and I'd still ride that like I stole it
- Went to the library and hassled about volunteer hours
- Did some work on a GLINDA update for the first time in weeks
- Decided the next GLINDA update wasn't going to work unless I retconned in the Veilstone City part of the story that got skipped first, because a lot of the plot I was hoping to work on is set up there and I really need a break from all the talking heads to draw some damn Pokemon
- Did some sketchwork for the recovery of the Veilstone City arc
- Got on Platinum and level-ground Boudicca from her low twenties to her low thirties.
- Made a fancy dinner

Aaaaand I'm waiting until after 8 PM to call Mom and wish her Happy Mother's Day because Dad probably took her out for dinner or something.

I am sorta starting to understand how party!Elliot feels in this scene

Wait, Chimecho's a windchime? I totally thought it was a doorbell.

Then again, I also think Togekiss looks more like a kite than a jet plane, so...

At some point, someone on Fandom Secrets made a post about shiny Pokemon. This got me into the mood to fire up my Pearl version and try that PokeRadar "chain" method again (GLINDA can't use chaining because you don't get PokeRadar until post-game, plus it's kind of cheating). I had a little success with Geodudes, but a lot of failure. Then this afternoon while I was coming home from class I figured out what I was doing wrong and how to stop.

Long story short, two blue Ralts in about an hour and a half of farming. And still going. Gonna have blue Gardevoir and it's going to be AWESOME. (might do some trading with GLINDA later so I can get Pokerus on my Pearl pokes)

ETA: And here's something to make my icon relevant.

Sometimes I feel like I'd rather write RP applications for characters than actually play them.

But I did get Yamame in, and I did register a journal for her, and I did collect some fanart of her to make into icons, and I have at least two friends wanting to play... I'll find time or something. Not tonight because I got about four hours of sleep last night and feel kinda shitty.

I was supposed to have a job interview tonight, but the company decided at the last possible second that they made some changes and don't need the position I was applying for after all. That... kind of stings.

Threw a tantrum this evening, and then this whole shading and coloring thing kind of started to click, FINALLY! I drew May from Pokemon, and so far all the crit I've gotten has been that her eyes are sized strangely and her cheekbones need to be higher. If you want to give more crit, go ahead! I can take it!

Why May? Because last night while taking a break from GLINDA's Platinum Hard Mode, I downloaded a ROM of Sapphire and let someone in a chatroom talk me into playing as Brendan. OH MY GOD. I hated May in the TV series, and I hated playing the Hoenn games as May, but NPC May is SO FREAKING ADORABLE.
