Fuck everything

apollymi: Doujinshi art of Sirius Black, no text (HP**Sirius: Do not approve)
I'm pretty sure that's all I've got to say for myself for today: fuck everything.

And let's start with fuck everything about Mirko Pasta. I'm so damn sick of this place. I'm not even sure I could stand to go back for food if I ever manage to quit for good.

The one upside is that I think I've finished making a playlist for zombie!fic.

NaNoWriMo Day 8

apollymi: Manic look Ninth Doctor, text reads "I solemnly swear I'm up to no good" (DW**9th Doctor: Up to no good)
I'm meant to be writing. Instead I'm making a pretty hefty playlist for the Damn Robicheaux Boys stories. Honestly, it's 13 15 songs so far including: 3 by Bishop Briggs, 3 by Dorothy, 2 by Halestorm, and 2 by Kamelot. Some of them are just songs that make it easier for me write for these boys (such as "Time Machine" by Ingrid Michaelson and "Renegade" by Styx), and some of them are character specific (such as "Raise Hell" by Dorothy and "Silence of the Darkness" by Kamelot), and some of them are shippy as hell (such as "Pray (Empty Gun)" and "River", both by Bishop Briggs).

It's all kinds of all over the place, especially as far as musical genres go, but it's at least somewhat heavy on metal and rock/hard rock. Even with that, there are only 5 by male artists. That... was not intentional. Or it wasn't intentional in the way you might think. I had to go and hunt songs by male artists to put on here, because almost all of the ones I had and loved best were by women. It's just funny to me. It's not a common problem for me. I guess it comes back to the same damn phrase we keep coming back to in my head and in my car: "damn Robicheaux boys".

There's a reason why that's the series name (at least in my head).

Anyway, that's where my mind has been for the past few days.

I do have to say that Roo is looking a lot better. He definitely has a much larger appetite. His gums are slowly pinking back up. The weird swelling he had on his face is all but gone. He does stills seem to be grinding his teeth when he eats, so if everything else looks good when we take him back in a week, I'll ask the vet about it. If everything else looks good. We've got a pissy enough kitty, because of all the pills we're having to give him: one of them is twice a day, one is once a day, and one is every 3 days. It's a lot of pills to try to get down the throat of a very unwilling cat. He's even taken to hiding behind the television when we first get up in the morning and when we first get back home for the day. And that makes me hella sad.

And yeah, I think I need to stop here. I need to get more words done. I aim to get caught up to where I should be by the end of the day. Here's the most up to date word count as I sign off:

apollymi: Scarlett looking pissy, text reads "Bitches get stuff done" (GwtW**Scarlett: Bitches get stuff done)
I have no idea how the hell I did this, but I just wrote over 2100 words in just over an hour. I mean, I know a lot of it was Write or Die, but it seems like it was a whole lot for the brief amount of time. I did 2 15-minute/500 word challenges, 1 14-minute/500 word challenge, and 1 13-minute/500 word challenge. I went a little over on all of them, so I have 2151 words for today.

I credit most of that to Write or Die. I credit some of it to my own competitiveness (I will catch up to [personal profile] katsuko and [personal profile] daimeryan_rei!). I credit more than a little of it to having good music playing while I was writing. If I'm going to get words flowing well, sometimes I need good music playing. Sometimes that classical music, so the lyrics don't distract me. Today it was my old Darkshipping/Casteshipping fanmix I made way back when, along with the Yu-Gi-Oh/Within Temptation fanmix I also made way back when).

It occurs to me that it's been a very long time since I've posted a fanmix. In fact, it seems that the last one I posted was on LiveJournal back in 2010, for BetrĂ¼ger. I certainly haven't stopped making fanmixes, but posting them? Yeah. For much the same reason that I've pretty much quit posting my fanfiction: no one really gives a shit. All of my books have their own soundtrack/fanmix, and most of the stories I've written do as well. Hell, even stories that I haven't finished have their own fanmixes.

On that note, I found out that I have about 3 chapters in reserve of both Crooked Way and BetrĂ¼ger. Reception hasn't been stellar lately--and by that, I mean in the last year or two--so I guess I've pretty much fallen off writing for now. Or rather, I guess it's more than I've fallen off writing anything to post online. Stuff I can sell? Hell, yes. But there's really not a lot to be done for it. If there isn't interest, then there isn't interest.

Anyway, here's an old quiz I just redid:

And here's my word count for the day:
