Hello, Because I Suck.

Written by Vicelin on January 31, 2010

Sorry that I haven't been on here in a whi-- WOAH, IS THAT THING COUNTING MY WORDS!!? WTFWFWTF!

...

Ok, so that's interesting. I actually kinda like it

And this is kind of perfect, in a really funny way, because the topic of my blog is going to pertain to word count.

So, the reason I haven't been here in a few months is because I've been really busy writing my story. Book. Novel. Whatever.

It's an action/adventure/romance/comedy/fantasy.

Which isn't all that wierd after you've seen Firefly, which is action/adventure/western/futuristic/sci-fi/comedy with heavy Chinese influences.

Yea, it's pretty out there. But it's Joss Whedon, so I'm not complaining.

Anyway, I started the story in October of last year, and it's going along pretty nicely.

93,000 words, 270 pages. That's how far I am.

To put that into perspective, I've just passed Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (85,141 words), and I'm moving on to Prisoner of Azkaban (107,253 words).

But...I'm only a quarter of the way done.

So 93,000 x 4 = ...372,000 words.

Which is...a third bigger then Order of the Phoenix (257,045 words).

Which means...

I will be inactive for a really, really long time ;_;

But I really love my story and I want to finish it.

Not sure about publishing it, though. I might give it to a few of my friends to read to see if they think it's worthy.

Anyway, one of my characters looks a lot like Theo Theodoridis.

Who makes me really, really wish that I had been born in Greece. -Drools-

...

Anyway, sorry for my rambling. Just wanted to let you guys know that I'm still here.

I just mostly lurk. Because I suck.

Your character is hot. :D When you're ready to show it a bit, I wanna read it a bit even if only a sneak peak!

Wow, that's really impressive. I've never had the resolve to finish any seriously long story I've begun. I think the most I'd ever done was 30 pages (I finished chapter 2 and my motivation died).

I want to read D;

I end up procrastinating so much I never finish the next chapter of my story, so kudos to you for reaching a word length longer than Order of the Phoenix! :D

(Hmm... I should go work on Cavalry now while it's still in the early stages of fail...)

If you'd be willing to share with us... I, for one, would LOVE to read it. It's been a while since I've read anything awesome. x)

It's cool to hear that some of you guys are interested in it maybe I'll think about posting it sometime. I'm trying to keep it really low on the radar (my parents don't even know about it) because I'm just...really anal about not letting anyone see my stuff until it's finished xD...Right now only two of my close friends have a copy of it, because one is my "editor" and the other just...a really close friend who likes to read.

Dee: Oh yea, he's definitely hot. His hair is blonder and a bit shorter then Theo's, but the face shape is a perfect match, just like I imagined him

Dest: I would love to, but I'm not sure I'm ready to post it online >.<...I'd feel much safer just sending it to people's e-mails.

Tarheel: Funny enough, neither have I xD...all the original stories I've tried to start before this never made it past one or two pages, because I just lost the motivation.

Nass: I don't blame you

Reve & Chameleon: I'll think about posting it...I'm wondering if there is somewhere online where I can upload it privately, like password protected and shit. I really love this story so I'm being intentionally overbearing and overprotective xD

I think there are some social-networking/blogging type of sites that allow you to set restrictions so that only friends are allowed to see any of your stuff... Dunno if that would work for a work the length of yours though... ._.''

I think your safest bet would be to just email them. I cant think of any sites like that off the top of my head

i love you
