OMG [livejournal.com profile] sgabigbang is LIVE!!!!

It's been six months, over 75 000 words, a lot of sweat and frustration. Now the result is finally available to the public. The site looks fantastic!

Hooke's Law is the latest instalment in the Entangled Particles 'verse.

Summary: Five years ago, Major John Sheppard read a novel and fell in love with the author, one M.R. McKay. His life has changed a lot since then. He might not be able to fly anymore, but he has a job he loves and he just moved into a new house together with his boyfriend. But not everything is perfect. Who is the crazed fan sending Rodney those deeply unsettling letters? Will the rest of the world conspire to tear down everything that matters to John? (NC-17)

I owe many thanks to my incomparable betas, [livejournal.com profile] the_cephalopod and [livejournal.com profile] wanted_a_pony, my proofreader [livejournal.com profile] yarnaddict, [livejournal.com profile] sgamadison and of course the rest of the almighty f-list and [livejournal.com profile] team_bigbang. You guys are the best!

The talented [livejournal.com profile] bellewhan made the most gorgeous art to accompany the story. There's this clever, amazingly detailed title page and also this beautiful drawing of the boys and Newton. Please take the time to let her know how awesome she is!

Now, where to find the time to read all these stories? *bounces in anticipation*

I feel the need to explain myself. You see, I had this awesome preview planned for my [livejournal.com profile] sgabigbang story. There were going to be pictures and interviews and questions from the audience.

However, that was before I came down with a 101 degree fever and acute torticollis. Let us just say that I'm not thinking so goodly right now, and every attempt to move sends my neck into spasms of agony. Work has not been fun. (Long story short - it started two days ago. Mr Boss called in Massage Guy yesterday to fix it and I was relatively painfree for all of twenty-four hours before it hit again today. All I want to do right now is curl up and whimper softly in a corner somewhere.)

So I'm afraid you're going to have to settle for this slightly more lame but, I hope, still somewhat awesome movie-trailer style preview for Hooke's Law. (Coming soon to a screen near you...)

I need a picture and I'm not sure if it exists. The picture I need, is a picture of either John Sheppard or Joe Flanigan in civvies. It should be a picture that could be taken out of the Entangled Particles boys' photo album, maybe the one Rodney framed and put on his desk. The one Rodney stares longingly at when John is working late. Sometimes he even reaches out to caress picture!John's face, but he will never, ever admit this.

They don't officially have a photo album... )

What I meant to say is this: I'm definitely not encouraging you to post tons and tons of pictures of Joe. I will definitely not love you if you do this.

And now I'm off to the NaNo kick-off. Yay!

Hi gang! It's almost time for the Big Bang previews. I'm planning to make mine in interview/chat style so I have a little question for you all.

If you had the chance, what would you like to ask the famous author M.R. McKay about Hooke's Law, the story he's starring in?

[livejournal.com profile] sgabigbang status report: 75 610 words. Done, edited and submitted.

Thank you, gang! Remind me to never do this again, will you?

This might mark the completion of the first draft. Whew. Just need to read through this monster and make sure there's nothing I've missed.

And I only hate every other word!

Okay, so between the fail marathon of the SGU-writers (yeah, I said I'd give it a fair chance but I think I'm changing my mind) and this sad excuse for a human being, I only have this public announcement to make:


*hides under the bed until all the stupid has gone away*


Good things: Leverage! I want Parker to be my crazy sexy girlfriend! I want to take Hardison home and keep him! Why is there only one ep left on my harddrive?

[livejournal.com profile] sgabigbang progress report: 40 130 words. I'm really not nice to John in this one. But I figure, if I had to spend all day yesterday with a migraine that made me throw up until long after there was anything left to throw up, why should he get off more easily?

Time to write some porn now, I think.

Oh, and why didn't anyone tell me how awesome Leverage is? I think I'm in love with Parker and I don't even find blondes all that hot...

Progress report for [livejournal.com profile] sgabigbang: 36k.

Now I'm getting to the point where I need the help from the mommies and daddies out there again. That baby I asked about a while ago? Well, she has grown. She's now a two-year-old, and I have questions concerning toddlers.

- What do they eat? Baby food? Adult food in suitable pieces?
- What kind of vocabulary do they have? Can you have a simple conversation with them? Would people other than their parents be able to understand them?
- Sleeping habits. Do they need to nap during the day? How many hours of sleep does the average two-year-old need?
- Anything else you think I need to know to write a believable toddler.

I realise that the development differs a lot from child to child (I asked my mother and it turned into a long discussion comparing me and my siblings. Apparently, they had much trouble potty training me. TMI, mum!) So any stories about your kids or kids you know or just kids in general will be extremely helpful to me. Hey, if we could build a dog together, we should be able to build a child, right?

Good news: The [livejournal.com profile] sgabigbang story is now at 34 122 words and it's a relief that I've finally managed to make that mental transition from 'short story writer' to 'novella writer'. I can write both, but it takes some effort to change between them. At least now I know I'll be in good shape for NaNo! I think the story might end up somewhere around 50k if everything goes according to plan.

Bad news: I'm nearing the point where I'm going to need a title to sum up the story. I can't call it 'bigbang09' forever, can I? Also, my OC:s are evil and refuse to listen to me. They all want a spot in the limelight and I have to hold them off with pointed sticks or they'll take over completely.

Speaking of NaNo - I'm beginning to get e-mails wondering if I'll be returning as Municipal Liaison this year. I wonder if I am. A lot to do last year. On the other hand - no pain this year. Maybe it's time to head over to the NaNo boards and check them out. It's August now, and soon it'll be September and then October and time to sign up again, and after that NOVEMBER!

1. Happy birthday, [livejournal.com profile] winter_elf!

2. Half a week left until I get to go on holiday. Why does it feel so far away? And why do I still have so much ironing to do before I can leave?

3. [livejournal.com profile] sgabigbang progress report: 11k and counting.

4. Some stupid customers and a nice one! )

1. Signups for the third and final SGA Big Bang are open! This year, I will not chicken out. Now, what to write... maybe that thing where Rodney keeps getting married?

1,5. I reeeeally have to get somewhere on the Merlin BB. Curse you Star Trek for distracting me!

2. My little baby brother is 18 years old today. This means he's an adult according to Swedish law. When did that happen? Happy birthday, brother!

I am so not in the mood for angst right now. Instead I kind of want to write a long story in which Jack and Ianto do nothing but nap and have sex. Or maybe that McShep hairdresser AU. Damn you, Big Bang![Poll #1179084][Poll #1179084]

1. SGA Big Bang (Also known as Bloody Big Bang) status report:

10050 / 40000


The good news is that I might have a title. The bad news is that I don't know if it'll work. Only time will tell.

2. I've been writing all day and it feels like I need to get out of the flat and get some exercise. Taking a walk, however, is more fun with a purpose. Therefore - photo meme!

Ask me to take pictures of any aspect of my life that you’re interested in or curious about. It can be a general prompt, like 'age' or 'culture' or a specific request, like 'I want to know what you see on your way to work'.  Leave your requests as a comment to this entry, and I’ll snap the pictures and post them as soon as I can.
 
I reserve the right to refuse requests I feel are too personal or stuff I don't want to advertise on the net (like the state of my bathroom). But don't let that stop you from asking!

Of which 1000 words is showersex! And it doesn't even suck! (No, not like that, you know what I mean.) Yay!

Okay Rodney, you got laid. Can you please tell me about your plan now?

Other news:

* I have watched a lot of due South lately and I have come to the conclusion that Ray K still rules everything that could possibly be ruled, Ray V might be less of a schmuck than I thought he was, Benton Fraser is a pretty, pretty man, and the brown uniform is so much hotter than the red.

* I'm thinking about getting a new kitten. Stupid!cat still lives with my parents and my flat is suffering from a severe lack of meow.

* I do not have time for [livejournal.com profile] mcsmooch so if you, Rodney, would kindly stop telling me about all the different ways you like to kiss John, it would be much appreciated.


Also:

Dear uterus,

Can we please stop with the cramps now? It's not my fault we're not having a baby!

no love,
Zin

Everyone has things they blog about. Everyone has things they don't blog about. Challenge me out of my comfort zone by telling me something I don't blog about, but you'd like to hear about, and I'll write a post about it. Ask for anything: latest movie watched, last book read, political leanings, thoughts on yaoi, favorite type of underwear, graphic techniques, etc.



Oh, and just because I'm crazily addicted to these things....
