I think I'm writing one of those Cardassian epics that Julian Bashir hated so much on DS9, where there's a cast of hundreds and every generation makes the same mistakes and eventually gives their lives over to the service of the state.

However, my place LOOKS like I'm making a lot of headway on nano so far, because I have no clean clothes, no clean dishes, and it's freezing-ass cold in here because I haven't yet tarped my windows or moved my furniture away from heaters so I can use them.

Totally not-nano question: Do we know if Jennifer Keller was on Atlantis as an underling prior to taking over for Carson, or did she arrive after "Sunday"? IT'S IMPORTANT BECAUSE OF REASONS. I totally wish I were writing Sparkvember instead.

I wish we were all writing Sparkvember too. Even though I'm currently enjoying getting into my character's heads

Me too but my novel is totally crap and even though that's the POINT of nano, it's making me wish I could just write Sparky because I know them so much better and also because porn would happen more often because nnng porn. I think my novel could actually be good tho if I were not writing it like crap! So yay!

We should do an online write-in or sumthin!

I wish I had your porn-writing skills, but alas I am TOTALLY lacking in the porn department. Just as well, really, as I dread to think how my novel would turn out.

Could you not pretend you were writing Sparky and then just change names/places? I don't even know if that would work, since your Sparky have such a clear voice...


I think my novel could be somewhat decent if I could only get the plot worked out! I have bits and pieces (and OMG, I have an ending AND a bonus chapter about which I AM EXCITE LIKE WOAH) but still don't quite know how I'm going to tie it all together.

Still, I've written over 3500 words today, so that's pretty good going (except I was behind by about 4k, so I'm not quite where I need to be at this point).

Also? YES! I WOULD LIKE THAT VERY MUCH.

I'm behind a lot! I wrote about 3K yesterday (and then lost 400 words in a stupidity-quit, not counting that part) and I'm hoping my migraine meds kick in soon so I can write today! And do laundry, so am not naked tomorrow at work.

WHEN DO YOU WANT TO DO WRITE THINGS?? Weekend is prolly best because of timezones? idk!
georgie: merlingeorgierae on November 12th, 2012 12:49 am (UTC)
Yes, weekends are good. Saturday could work for me... I'm possibly at work until 8pm GMT, but that'll work out okay for you, I guess!</p>

Argh, too much pressure to get things written so I don't, once again look like a total failure!

*shakes fist at last two NaNo years*

Re: Write-in!
Srsly, sloth!! I am blaming being sick, because that means I'm either in pain or hopped up on meds! Neither of which make me feel like moving my brain. Also, I've reached that point where I'm aware that I'm writing tons of words that will have to be taken out because I'm stretching a 200 word scene into a 1500 word scene or whatever. :-/ Ah well! I wish I could write plot quickly. I'll keep trying! :)

I don't think it's ever mentioned? idk.

And wiki does not confirm either.

Ellie found a quote below that suggests she was an on-site replacement who got shanghaied into keeping the position. Woo!
elliejaneelliejane on November 11th, 2012 11:44 pm (UTC)
Hmmm, does this quote at the IMDB help? It IMPLIES she was already there and thought she was just filing in for Carson...

Somewhere it says First Strike was the ep she was introduced and that was 2 or 3 eps after Sunday.

Eee! OMG, that's perfect! <3 <3 THANK YOU, research goddess!

I just remembered her seeming kind of woefully unprepared, so I wasn't sure if that was because they plucked her off of Earth with no warning or because she didn't have the leadership experience. Poifect!

You are awesome! This has been a sticking point in a fic I've had on my h/d for months (years?) and I'd never quite got around to researching to find out when Jennifer arrived on Atlantis. You've just solved all my problems! *g*
