The Misadventures of DW~

Want to know the progress of some old works? Want to know what's in store to come? Or even want to just know how my life in general is going? Check here!

Walking in a winter wonderland...well, sort of.

A specticle happened here in Texas last Thursday--it snowed! Not that I could enjoy it...or even look at it. I was working. And it only snowed like...an inch? Lol. Nothing spectacular. But apparently it's enough to make everyone go psycho. Other than that, a few new things!

Chopped off my nails. I know, I was so sad about it. But then again, I use acrylics, so I can always just make them longer again if I  want to. Though, it is definitely much easier to type with shorter nails. (They're gold with green holly! I'm so festive~)

Bought a new microphone. Though no one would really know what I would use it for, so it's more or less just a random blurb that I'm sharing with y'all. 

I'm getting a new laptop for Christmas! Yayness, right? Don't get me wrong, love my desktop, but it's annoying to have to sit in a chair for hours on end and be uncomfortable. Not to mention it's a pain in the ass to try and concentrate on writing when there's the boyfriend in the background yelling at the stupid people in his game. Ya know, gamer life.

Coming along nicely with the outline of my Xanxus sequel. A main plot outline is starting to come together decently enough. Though it's still being a pain in the ass...and it's making my story longer than what I had anticipated it being. I've changed my mind so much with what I want to happen in that story. First I wanted it to just be a one-shot, then it morphed into at least ten chapters, and now it's turning into something more or less closer to twenty or so chapters. I hate making my creative juices overwork sometimes...but I enjoy it and it's easier to deal with than overworking myself at work~

Okami HD comes out tomorrow! Woohoo! Man, I LOVE that game! And it's being rereleased for the PS4 and I'm going to play the shit out of that game for the eighth time! xD No regrets.

Participating in the anon fic trade. I'm kind of excited for it! Though I can't really think of a good story with what I've been given, but I'm sure something will hit me in a day or two. It usually does. 

I kinda want to do more fictrades again. I used to do them all the time back in the day. But it seems most of the crowd I traded with has become inactive. Bleh. We'll see. Maybe I'll try to revive it after the holidays. I'll be sure to take plenty of vacation time. Lol.

Other than that, I don't really have much else going on here. Besides playing video games and neglecting to do laundry...because it's cold...and my washer and dryer are in the garage...which is equally as cold. 


So until later~


Oh the Holidays...and Long Nails

dark_wing19 Friday December 1, 2017

Oh my freaking God. Ugh. Retail and the holidays suck!

Okay, a little backtracking to give some backstory. Hit it~ *hits rewind button*

For those that don't happen to already know, I work in retail. Not only do I work in retail, but I'm a manager in said retail business. Well assistant manager. Have been for the past two and a half years. I also work on average 45 hours a week. Yay. So much fun.

Okay, forward now~ *hits forward button*

Here we are, the beginning of December, and I have a stockroom full of merchandise. Why? Because we get seven trucks a week that seem to be consisting of five to nine pallets a day. Normally that wouldn't be a problem, but we were all told that apparel freight was going to be slowing down to allow more space for gift giving product. Well guess what? They freaking lied. I have apparel running out of my ears and piling up in my stockroom. Not only that, but just about all other merchandise as well because I simply don't have the room on the sales floor. I'm being sent more freight than is being sold. *sigh*

Oh, and I have my RVP coming next week. orz

But, you know, no stress.


In other news, I've slowly been getting back into the writing scene. I literally haven't written in like two years prior to like two weeks ago. So let's look at some updates!

A Lovers' Quarrel (KHR)
OMG FINALLY FREAKING FINISHED!! Felt like it took me forever. Probably because it literally did.

'Tis The Season (OHSHC)
Not gonna lie, just haven't been feeling the vibe for Ouran latley. *shrugs* May update something during December just because it's around the holidays that the booklet takes place.

Childhood Stories (KHR)
Still plan on adding to this! I enjoy retelling fables. It just takes some motivation...and the right story.

Endless Possibilities (KHR)

Honestly, I have to find my notes for all the stories I had lined up and the people who made requests. Heh, oops.

Let Me Be Your Wings (GW)

Okay, so this one I honestly wanted to work on completing next, but the GW bug hasn't hit me yet. It's still stuck on KHR Not only that, but I wanted to get the sequel to Caught in the Cradle posted and finished. Wanted to keep my mind focused on one story at a time. But I do plan on working on it and finishing it!

Taming the Bronco (KHR)
Honestly, I'm probably never going to finish or revise this story. I had wanted to, but I just don't see it happening anytime soon. :/ 

Wonderful, Whimsical, Weird? (KHR)
Jut like with EP, I have to find my notes and what I had planned. And more importantly, the order that stories were requested. 


Other than that, there are only two stories that are new and in the works that I want to post. 

The Heart Wants What It Wants (KHR)
Sequel to Caught in the Cradle. I have honestly had the hardest time deciding what to do with this story. I've started writing three different things with three different plots and nothing is sticking solidly yet. *sigh* So I think I'm going to try and do a mesh of the three. Some aspects from each and see how that turns out. Then I can't decide if I want to include canon events or not. I'm usually not any good at that sort of thing because my memory sucks. 

Marry Me (KHR)
Honestly, this one just hit me in the butt a few days ago. I heard a song and instantly wanted to write something for it. And then I wanted to punch myself in the face for thinking about adding to my work load. 


Aaaaaaaand that's about it in a nutshell. 

Oh, and typing with nails sucks. v.v For the past two years, I've gotten used to having long nails. Can't really have them long if I want to type on a keyboard...*heavy sigh*

I need a vacation.
