echoing_dream: (Gossip Girl: Three Words)
Hello LJ, long time no see. I think I got lost there somewhere in a haze of not sleeping properly and trying to sort out visas...

Have a book meme (which I stole from [ profile] badfalcon:

Choose 10 books that you like. List the first sentence or so of each of those books. Let other people try to figure out what book that first line is from.

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times... )

I am finally up to date on all my essays (eight of them in the last three days *flops down dead*).
I have read all my notes for history for the coming week.
I have ordered all my new texts off Amazon, to arrive before the weekend.
I have sorted out my shifts for the weekend.
I have submitted draft coursework for review.
I have chosen my coursework titles.
I have learned my parts for joint Choral (and remembered to speak Ecclesiastic and not Classical Latin)
I have chosen my piece for Sarah’s concert.
I am writing fic.
What could possibly go wrong?

Stolen from [ profile] temporal_witch who apparently is NOT an HTML tag:

If you could have me write a fic specifically for you, what would it be like? Fandom, characters/pairing, genre, plot elements, kinks... what's your ideal fic from me?

Apparently, reading explicitly suggestive poetry is not conducive to holding my trains of thought. I do love it when I'm not the only one with my mind in the gutter though...

On a slightly related note: I've noticed I listen to different bands according to what fandom I'm writing for, and sometimes there are different bands for different pairings (eg. Rudy/Pappy have adopted Owl City, Queen is for writing Torchwood fic.). Am I the only person that does this?

So, I may have fallen in love with Office 2007. Just a little. But it’s shiny! And there are COLOURTHEMES!

Also, there is OneNote, which just makes me want to organise myself (and I am never organised on the weekends, I operate a make-it-up-as-I-go-along system). It kind of makes me want to plot epic AUs with plot and screencaps! Which is very exciting. Especially since I never plan fic, and then I forget what I was thinking about and then all the epicness leaves.

Word does not approve of my made up words, however. I will have to find a system.. IT COUNTS YOUR WORDS AS YOU TYPE THEM! And then it flashes them up at you! This is the best WP software ever. And if you highlight words, it tells you the number of those words and also how many there are in total. I am writing fic just so I can keep using my shiny new programmes.

Ahem .

On a side note, I need to work out who I want one my GK icon. I'm thinking the LT, but Ray keeps looking at me like a kicked puppy, and I kind of have a soft spot for him...
