I'm going to buy a e-reader, but I've no idea which one. Does anyone have any good advice for me? What should I look out for?

Edit: I bought a Kindle. First fanfic I downloaded onto it? Loaded March.

Do you know how annoying it is to be in the middle of a fic, stop to sleep for eight hours, and in the morning, the fic and the LJ account it was posted on are gone? It's frustrating.

(I mean, I can't blame people for wanting to pull their writing off the internet. It's their right, after all. But... exactly when I'm reading it? Why do I have such bad luck with those things?)

Panic mode

I've started to panic. Not horrendously, yet, but just slightly. I don't understand how I'm supposed to get everything done. BB, work, meeting family, meeting friends, writing, podficcing! And I want to do ALL those things! Well, except work, but I can't exactly skip that, now, can I?

I just don't get it. How does everyone else manage?

Okay, so this is what I'm writing about (although I haven't gotten very far, yet):

Based on this song.

Morgana is watching the world 'from above'. She chose to keep her memories and to live on as an immortal when she was presented with the choice as she died. However, as punishment for her selfishness in canon, she must watch over Merlin and Arthur until they find each other. She's fine with it - now - although she wishes they'd really find each other already, so that she can be set free to do whatever she wants.

(Deviation from canon: Merlin died, but he - unlike Morgana - chose to lose his memories and to be reborn.)

Merlin works at a bookshop. He has a weak kind of magic ('household magic'), nothing like in canon, and two best friends in Gwen and Will. Early on, he'll get into a relationship with Mordred, which works fine (but isn't excellent).

Arthur's in a relationship with Mithian (which is also fine; they're planning their wedding). He's working at Uther's company and is generally pretty satisfied with life.

The boys run into each other at the supermarket (without knowing it), and sparks happens - literally - when an unexpected flare of Merlin's magic makes all the lights in the store go out.

After that, they'll run into each other at different places without realising it (cue Morgana being frustrated); each time with Merlin's magic reacting to the proximity between the two soulmates.

However, something is rotten in the state of D-, uh, Albion, and while neither of them are aware (seriously, it sounds like they're completely clueless, but they will catch on... later), both Merlin and Arthur are in danger. Someone - or something - are out to kill them because of an ancient prophecy.

Merlin and Arthur will find each other eventually, and they'll fight the mysterious force/person that wants them dead and everything'll end well.

That's pretty much it.

(Jeez, it sounds really complicated, and I guess it is... but it'll be fine. I'll work it out.)

All podficcing is put on hold (thanks to who/whatever that I finished my LM parts last week!) due to the fact that I woke up with a disgusting cold this morning. Probably isn't a totally bad thing, though, since I always prioritize podficcing before everything else nowadays. It's fun.

I have a lot of other stuff to do, so... yeah. Maybe it's good to not be able to podfic for a week. Otherwise I'm working today, trying to get a lot done. By necessity, of course -- the deadline is tomorrow morning.

I also should help out a tumblr acquaintance with a creative writing thing -- and let's not forget my own BB fic. I really, really must get started properly on that, otherwise I won't finish it, and I really want to.

So, spending my Tuesday in front of my computer again. But this time I'm actually working, which is good. This does mean, however, that I'm behind on the podficcing, but I'll catch up tomorrow or the day after that. It'll work out.

This has been a short update. Back to work!

Not great

I'm such a blubbering mess sometimes. My brain has officially checked out because it got sick of all the thoughts.
scinscire: (Default)
Suddenly feeling a lot of pressure again. No worries, though, I'll work through it. I just have to put ABC on hold for a week or so. We've gotten our LM parts to read, and I'm worried because I've lost my podfic mojo slightly lately. I've lost my everything mojo lately, actually. Hah. But I at least wrote something the night to yesterday (only 3,000 words, but it's a lot for me), and the lovely Cee has beta'ed it, and I'll put it up on AO3 in a few days (or at the end of the week, at the latest).

And I should also look through my cv and job applications (and maybe write some more), and send them.

But first, I need to sleep. I really, really, really need to sleep.

I've recorded a few parts of ABC today. It does not go very well. Or, rather, I think it does, but when I listen to it (after having edited it), I make so many mistakes! It's just so frustrating.
scinscire: (Default)
Yay! It's been a while since I recorded anything, due to stupid Audacity problems. I have had to buy a new mic, and this means that I have to re-record the progress I'd made on 'A Binding Contract'. Also doing a podfic collaboration with a few other people for the recording of LM. That moves pretty slowly forward, though, so I don't feel so stressed out any more. To be quite honest, I'm having a great day!

I'm having a bad couple of days. Didn't update LJ yesterday, because I didn't have anything positive to say. I do today, though. A friend of mine is turning 30, so we're meeting up for dinner at a restaurant this evening. It'll be great seeing her. Hopefully my bad temper will have cooled down by then.

I made it!

We-hey! I made the deadline with the amazing time window of 20 minutes. And I've worked all night. But still! Made it!

Going to bed now, though. At 7:41 am. Still counts.
scinscire: (Default)
It's 2:29 am, and I'm not done by far (at least 5 hours to go), and my deadline is 8 am. I fear this might go straight to heck.
scinscire: (Default)
Actually working today. But I'm tired and really in a pretty bad mood. It's going slowly in the right direction, but it's not the best work I've ever done. And I'm worried about the future. But whatever, it'll work out sooner or later.

Haven't started properly (only written one page) on my BB fic either, which worries me quite a lot. I have a pretty good idea where I'm going with it, though... Although, when I actually sit down and write, it tends to go off in a different direction. Need to rein it in a little.

And the podficcing of the story I'm doing on my own has gotten a bit shuffled under the table lately. To be honest, all I really want to do when I don't fret about work/future/obligations is sleep.

When I'm done with this work (on Wednesday), I'm taking a week off. No, really, I am. Because that's the one thing that's good with being a freelancer. I can actually do that.

I really don't want you to not like me, and I find myself adjusting my opinions and expressions to suit you. And then hating myself for it, because you should like me for who I am, and I'm too old to not be myself.

I should be sure enough in myself to stand my ground, but I'm not. I've never been. I want and need your approval, and for that I'm sorry.

I found this poem via [ profile] loaded_march's lj, and, naturally, I needed to try and pronounce all the words. It didn't really work well, but I blame everything on the fact that I'm not a native English speaker. That's what I always do, but at least it's true.

Here's the link if you want to listen to me making an ass of myself: online link.

And then I looked the words up, and recorded it again, and then it sounded like this: online link.
(Everything is still not pronounced properly, but at least a little bit better...)
