I got a message today that I had a new follower–thanks, healerrachel–so I decided to check my stats. For some amazing reason, I have 97 followers! WOO HOO!
Thanks so much to all of you for your support. I had no idea there were so many of you! With that in mind, I’ll start posting more, even if it’s just a random musing. If/when I make it to 100, I’ll try to do something special. I have no idea what form that will take, but I’ll think on it.
And yes, that’s me, about a million years ago.
What Am I Doing Today? Drinking: Coffee, the elixir of the gods Eating: Nothing at the moment Watching:The Man in the High Castle Writing: Vampire: the Masquerade Fanfiction Playing: Elder Scrolls Online and Vampire: the Masquerade
Oh, no, it’s the “DREAM CAST” article! Yep, it sure is.
Every character I have ever created, all the way back to my first story as a child, was based in some way on someone I could see and watch. Some are based on people I know in real life, but I also use celebrities or fictional characters from TV, movies, and videogames–and to be honest, a handful of professional wrestlers. The reason I do this is simple. I’m a visual person, and having someone or something to look at helps me write. In addition, it’s easy to people watch when they’re plastered all over every screen in the world. I use some people for their faces, others for their personalities, and others simply for the way they move, and one character might be based on three different people.
Day Two was great. We edited over 8,000 words of Clan of the Blood and wrote over 1000 new ones. I’ve also decided to add the short stories and fanfic I’m writing to my word count, because it’s all productive. So after adding in the 1,600 fanfic words I also wrote, I posted a total of 3,000 for the day.
And then there was yesterday, when I did exactly squat. It was a bad day.
I’m feeling ambitious today, though, so hopefully I’ll have better news to post later.
