Bren’s writing and movies blog

Because I have an opinion about creativity and know how to use it

Huh, it’s been a while

Posted by brenatevi on June 16, 2011

So, I decided to revive this slumbering beast, mainly because I had thoughts about “An Ordinary Vampire” that I didn’t feel would fit into my Evil Blog. I started to write again after three months of being stressed out, and therefor unable to write. I’m back on nights, there is a light at the end of the tunnel for two other drama’s, and I’m tired of playing video games and watching stuff. Throw in re-reading my Schlock Mercenary books (waiting until I get the new one before I finish the archives – again {Schlock Mercenary inspires me greatly}) and picking up the Troy Rising series by John Ringo (if only he would finish the Looking Glass series *pouts*) and I feel like I’ve had an enema for my mind (that was probably a image better fit for the Evil Blog, but ah well.)

Oh, and her. That’s a conversation for another place and time.

But any ways, some quick notes: Jeanine’s branch of the Family is related to Aunt Beatrice, right? So what were her parents like, considering that branch is even more messed up that Kyle’s?

The Family and the Inquisition: discuss.

The Mistress’s hatred for all things Catholic: see above. (Related, the Netherlands shard’s reverence of all things Mistress. Reminder: Causality is quite often ignored by the Traum, with ideas from the future affecting shards in the past. While the Mistress is a result of a hundred years of recent re-imagining vampires, the idea has resonated so well that it affected the past. To the point that she was there for the Eighty Years War, and helped save the Netherlands from the Catholic invaders. Or was she? Or does it really matter?)

Any ways, I’ve lost track of my train of thought and have grown exhausted. (Got stuck reading about the Netherlands, the Inquisition, among other things…)

Good writing night. Once I got going, the words flowed, and I really didn’t want to stop, but I want to get up earlier than normal tomorrow.

Over 8,000 words in the past month, and almost 16,000 since I got going again… Wow, I have been consistent since the beginning of February. Which is a good thing, of course. Heh, half of the act has been written in the past two months.

Tonight or tomorrow night I will be finished! With this act, at least. Then I get to figure out what in the hell to do with the next act.

conjecture

Another Laundromat night. Ran into a gay black man reading the book “Nigger.” At least I conjecture he was gay. I know he was black, and the book was his, so it’s pretty certain he was reading it. Unless he was just looking at the pictures… Which it might.

My guess is two thousand words more, although the way I’m writing, I’m not going to stick with that. Probably more. It wouldn’t surprise me if I’m able to pump out 4k-6k more.

I just realized that I need a title for the book. Oh well. I can get that later.

Lost work…

Posted by brenatevi on March 28, 2009

Bugger, bugger, bugger! I normally redundant out the arse, with at least 4 copies of my story on at any given moment (Treo, Mini, Laptop, Google Docs) but somehow, despite copying the story between my Treo and Mini… I lost the last edit of my story. It wasn’t that much, maybe 200 words max, but I completely lost my train of thought. I can’t remember what I was thinking. So, I try this again.

I will have more written by tonight, but I had something to get off my chest on my evil blog, and now I’m just tired.

I’m really digging the Mini now that I’ve changed the keyboard map. Didn’t write last night because of my angst, I still think I might finish Act 1 tonight. If not, it’s all good.
