New Writing Blog

iolre:

Hello lovelies,

You probably don’t know, but I like writing both original and fanfic stuff. I would like to be published one day and eventually would like to be able to support myself through my writing. Unfortunately, as much as I wish I could, I can’t do that with fanfic.

To that end, I’m starting up a new blog with a good friend of mine who is also a writer and has similar goals. We’ll be posting content to do with our original stuff, writing advice, discussion, reviews, and a bunch of other writing-related stuff (including writing exercises)!

If you’re interested in my original writing, or writing in general, we’d love to see you over there. While our focus is original writing, a lot of what we post will also be relevant for fanfic. We’ll be starting to post on Monday.

I’ll still be keeping this blog, and writing and posting fanfic, probably at about the same pace. But you’ll also be able to find me over on Our Writing Lives.

What is Scary Work? Makes me think of Ghostbusters or something ;)

I have to start screening calls today, where I’m calling people who have indicated they’d be interested in participating in our research project. It’s terrifying. XD

Happy Birthday!! :D

Thank yooooou~

Happy birthday to you ヾ(*´∀`*)ノ I hope you have a lovely day planned out for you!

Hello!

Thank you!

Hi!

Okay. So, I doubt this has eeeveeeer come up on tumblr before, but I get a bit odd/hyper when I’m really tired and I didn’t go to bed until after 4:30am and I got up at 8:45am (Mum called three times until I picked up) and now I’m awake and I shouldn’t be oops. Haha.

Hahahahaha. I’m going to be regretting this tonight.

Okay that entire thing’s kind of irrelevant I don’t even know. Ignore me.

I get to go to work and have a meeting and then do work and then some Scary Work and theeeeen go out to dinner! Which will either be fun, a sociological experiment, or a smackdown. I think it says something about me that I would be fine with any of the three. Hmm.

Thank you, sweet Nonny. <3

(And I apologize for the ramble.)

Happy birthday to me, happy birthday to me, I am so veeeryyyy oooollllddddd…happy birthday to meeeee~

In honour of my birthday I am allowing myself to post AMP Chapter 12, so that will be going up later. :D

aaaaa yes I love soulmate AUs. It's such a shame that there's so few fics in the Mystrade tag with that kind of setting, so you can understand how excited I was when I first saw yours! I shall fortify myself with tissues and sweet food when the angsty times come, then.

I have to give major thanks to my lovely beta dreigiau for getting me into soulmate AUs. (And for pretty much everything related to writing fanfic, but if I kept that up this would dissolve into a weeping awards show thanks, so I won’t.)

I was quite surprised with how well-received AMP has been. Thrilled, of course, but I never expected quite how popular it’s become! It’s a lovely fic to write and the characters are so much fun (I love Anthea in particular).

:D There’s an inkling in the next chapter, but also some…mildly fluffy cute stuff. I might post a preview today or tomorrow.

'Lover of angst', your blog says. I suppose we'll be seeing some of that in the future chapters of AMP then ;A;

Quite! Angst is one of my favourite things to write. The more broken, the better.

AMP is interesting in that it’s not the darkest thing I’ve ever written but it certainly doesn’t fall on the light end of the spectrum. They’ve got a way to go, those boys, but some of the worst is behind them (not all of it, mind you).

I really have fallen in love with the whole ‘soulmate AU’ thing and certainly hope to do more of it in the future.

Oh, that was so satisfying to read. How are they so bloody adorable I am dying. And I'm thrilled that you have the next chapter lined up already! Until then, I shall just bask in this happy feeling from reading your cute mystrade.

Sorry, this got buried by all the prompts Dreig and I got today, oops!

I’m so glad that you liked it! They’re such cutie pies sometimes. Can’t guarantee it’ll stay that way for long. ;)

Chapter 12 is nearly finished! Ideally I’d like to have a week between chapters at least, especially because I don’t really have any writing time right now!

Thanks so much and I’m so glad you liked it. <3

Young writers should read books past bedtime and write things down in notebooks when they are supposed to be doing something else.

Fun fact, when I was between the ages of about 6 and 12, I consistently slept about four hours a night because I was reading. To this day my parents (and I) still haven’t worked out how I managed to function during those years. (I figure the annoying need I have for sleep these days, 8+ hours a night, is an attempt to catch up.)

Iolre’s random addition:

I was going through my room a few years ago and stumbled across a diary from when I was 7 or 8. In it there’s something like this:

Dear Diary,

This morning I woke up at 6:30 so I decided to read. Mom came in at 6:57 and told me to get up. I told her I would get out of bed at 7 once I finished this chapter. She left.

To this day I still find it hilarious and so totally me.
