I really shouldn't have read my swficathon assignment on a Day Of Work. Really not. I wasn't going to, but then anr was all "omg, reply and say you got it!" and once the email was open I couldn't not look...

... if you need me, I'll be over here writing that thing now.

-- Little Red, whose ability to suck at productivity is UNPARALLELED.

p.s. Can I pretend this is practice for productivity? Since I'm starting on something well before the deadline? No? Bother.

p.p.s. This would all be a lot easier if my muse wasn't a fickle little now-or-never thing. I feel threatened and coerced. *eyes her*

p.s.s. Because last week I failed to meet my Production Quota on my novel, the punishment will be spending three consecutive days totally offline and without teevee. I just bartered (with myself) that this punishment should be like punishments in baseball, such that I can choose the most convenient time and date for this. I'm starting to see why I got away with murder as a child, why I earned the family superhero name of "The ManipulaTOR" and why I'm going to be the most lenient mother ever.

Even knowing they will end up being genetically manipulative and/or horridly spoiled?

1) Yay for ficathon assignments! Mine's going to be... different. *nods* If I weren't so tired and/or addicted to HGTV, it might not seem like such a strange challenge to me.

2) Yes, you may pretend that it's practice for productivity, because whoa, it's not due for six weeks.

3) Yes! Do it now!

4) Hee. You're so cute.

5) Numbered lists!
Little Red: gleee! - nenyamylittleredgirl on August 8th, 2005 07:12 pm (UTC)
5) OMG, numbered lists IN REVERSE!

4) You are cute too! Cuteness for all!

3) *does so*

2) But that makes me all NERVOUS, for now it must be WORTHY of having six weeks to work on it! *flails* That's totally why I never do anything until right before the deadline, I think.

1) Does it involve maggots? And I probably wouldn't be as insanely shrieky-gleeeful about mine if it didn't happen to hit one of my fic-kinks pretty closely. Although I think the girl whose request it is could write this particular fic way better than me, but oh well!

1) Ewww - maggots. The movie Lost Boys ruined me forever. The hardest part for me will be keeping it anonymous. Hope that doesn't give anything away.

2) Six weeks sounds so long and so short at the same time.

3) If you finish early, does it get posted early? :)

4) You two are both adorably cute.

5) *wonders how long we can keep the numbered lists going*
Little Red: sga - atlanteans arts & craftsmylittleredgirl on August 8th, 2005 07:33 pm (UTC)
5) OMG FOREVER, so long as topic substitutions are allowed.

4) [Babylon 5] "Have I ever told you that you are very cute for a Minbari? Yes, you are cute too -- in an annoying sort of way. Everybody's cute! EVERYBODY'S CUTE! Even me! But in purple, I am STUNNING." [/Babylon 5]

3) Er... I don't think so. I will just stare at it a lot and try not to develop a premature hatred for it. :)

2) It really does. At this point I'm all "omg, it is so long!", but that will change as soon as my muse spots something shiny and wanders away.

1) *behaves all sekrit-like*
Melyanna: Lizzy/Darcy (hands)melyanna on August 8th, 2005 07:45 pm (UTC)
5) *nods* Ordered lists are very gleeeful.

4) Cuteness all around!

3) Yay!

2) Hrm, I can see how that would be a problem. Well, you can write it now, put it away for a while, and then be all rushing around to get it perfect. Or something. My thing is that if I don't get it done as quickly as possible, I'm totally going to forget to write it. The only problem is that it's totally not something I'd usually write. (Darn it, I have to actually think about it.)

1) Hee. I realized after I put my request in that my request was totally something YOU'D request. I'm very curious to know how it's going to come out. And, er, no, no maggots.

okay I think I'm missing stuff from not reading LJ much, but what novel are you writing? :D

And are you a DragonLance fan?
Little Red: trashy romance novels! - qwirkymylittleredgirl on August 12th, 2005 03:39 pm (UTC)
1) I'm writing a romance novel! I took a few months off before going back to work or going back to school to focus on writing a romance novel to see if I actually have Novelist Potential or if that's just something I made up. ;)

2) Er... no? Never heard of DragonLance. What is it?
Roxychichiri on August 13th, 2005 01:01 am (UTC)
Dragon Lance- fantasy series!
GO ROMANCE NOVELS! (would never read them, i hate romance! :P maybe I'd read yours)

why I'm going to be the most lenient mother ever.

Dude that is a no-brainer.

*would apologise except... apologising for making you write sparky!fic is one of my big no-no's in life. it's right up there with "no uncalled for dismembering and killing" and "thou shall not classify Mary Sue's as original characters"*
Little Red: sga - omgtehhug! - martoufmartymylittleredgirl on August 12th, 2005 03:41 pm (UTC)

It's, er, probably a good thing I've got a few months to sort this all out. It doesn't have to be exactly 1000 words, does it? If it's, like, a few more thousand, is that okay? *smiles sweetly*
anranr on August 21st, 2005 04:17 pm (UTC)
A few thousand, huh? Well, I guess I accept that... */sarcasm*
