I have a character from Torchwood that is making an appearance in Children Through Time.

See who it is )

When I need to procrastinate, I procrastinate. Below you will find a new "comic," but it is spoilerish for my story Children in Time. If you have not read it, you can choose not to click. (But if you want to read it, go here!)

On to the funny )

... and PROCRASTINATION! )

After all is said and done, I am proud of the story I came up with. So much so, I used my real name, thusly why it is listed under Carole B. instead of huskyfriends. You can find it here: Children in Time


I do want to thank some people for their help in taming this story the size of space whale. [livejournal.com profile] avon_09 was an awesome beta. Not many people could survive getting 30,000 words dumped into their lap at a time and not bat an eye. Thank you so much!

[livejournal.com profile] erin_giles for cheering me on and for being my Brit Consultant. Your knowledge helped so much. Can I buy you a pint?

[livejournal.com profile] knitchick1979 for the copy editing, the soft head to bounce ideas off of, and the many late night car rides and text messages.

[livejournal.com profile] chicago_girl_07 for being a great alpha and for waving those pom-poms high.

[livejournal.com profile] laura_guerin for the most awesome cover art. It blew me away and made me squee in the Starbucks.

And to Johnny Venom who kept giving me reality checks (Sleep is essential) and for providing last minute translations.


I thank everyone who supports writers in general. And now my advert for a couple of other authors. [livejournal.com profile] knitchick1979 has a story as part of TARDIS Big Bang also. Check out Kiss Her Goodbye. And we cannot forget [livejournal.com profile] erin_giles and her mafioso-style masterpiece Damsels in Distress.

In case you were wondering, after all was said and edited, my word count on my computer for Children in Time came in at 83,916. I cannot wait to see the artwork!! But I did it! I wrote a novel with a complete beginning, middle, and end. This feels awesome, and my brian is NOT a pile of gelatinous goo resembling rat jam!

So, it has been a weird couple of days. Got my TARDIS Big-Bang rough draft in. Unfortunately I needed to add in plot notes because it still needs to be finished. Word count for the story alone? 35,441 words and in the plot notes gives me 37,313.


Now my life needs to take back over again. I have a American Cancer Society Relay For Life team to get donations for and finals next week. Plus a monthly show next week and I am working my first ACEN. Quick pointer: If you ever want to make new friends, even at an Anime Con, carry around a knitted Dalek and see how may people squee and come over to you and "Oh My God!" And then watch them dies as you offer a real, honest to God Jelly Babie. (I love my little shops! Jelly Babies, Crunchie bars, Irn-Bru and Scottish bangers, and black pudding!) Hee-hee-hee.


Add to that that I got into a car accident this morning at a major intersection. SO far I am good, but I did bounce my head against the headrest. It could have been worse. I was on a six-lane highway, intersecting a five lane highway. If there had been cars coming when she bumped forward into the intersection... lucky I only have to replace my bumper and maybe a bit of the back end. Court date for the woman's ticket is in June, and hopefully it will be good. The cop seemed a little wary about the name of her insurance company.


Back to my so-called life... Anyone want to hire me just to write for them?

Okay, so one week from rough drafts due and I have 30, 430 words and 20 chapters done and the aliens are first coming in. I still have a good chunk of storyline to do. Too many thoughts rattling around in my head and it isn't fair that [livejournal.com profile] knitchick1979 just slapped me upside the head.


All this and I have to get ready for a script workshop I am holding on the 26th (Brilliant! Yes I know!) for a t.v. show I will be pitching. Gotta love it.


Oh, and by the way....

Finished Chapter 15 at 24, 574 words! WAHOO!


[livejournal.com profile] knitchick1979 are working on a piece of fluff Torchwood Round Robin based around Easter. I blame the chocolate eggs and inordinate amount of Peeps floating around.


In other news, I don't know where these days are going, but hopefully things are starting to look up? Ever feel unsure of yourself? I do, but I sincerely hope that this is the start of a bright new era, at least a semi-bright decade would be nice.

I have passed the minimum! 21,160 words! This has made me so happy. I took this as a personal challenge since this is pretty much the style of deadlines for when you publish books, I figured if I can't do this, how can I write. Passing this has made me so happy!


Yet, now I still have the storyline to finish...

theatre_girl79: (Default)
Chapter 12 is begin and I am at 18,100 words. I am trying to get this finished so i can get to my other writing and concentrate on my American Cancer Society Relay For Life team.

I am into Chapter 9 and am at 14,152 words. Things have been on a tear the last couple of days. WAHOO! Next question, I would love to have a second beta, my beta is awesome, but I don't want to overwhelm her.
theatre_girl79: (Default)
YEAH! 11,054 words, and Chapter 6 is done. Finally moving along. HUZZAH!
