Spring Ishness! {2017}

[Note: Apologies if you got this twice and/or if the link didn’t work! I accidentally posted it wrong and therefore deleted it… so it might have been wonky. >.> SO SORRY. Let this be a lesson to look at things more carefully before posting…]

Half-March, April, May (2017)

Time for my second Ishness of the year! (Yes, these have been less than regular, of late. XD)

Last time, I talked about the first two and a half months of 2017, so this time I’m talking about what I’ve been doing since then, in April and May and part of March. How time flies! *still in shock that it’s JUNE*

This… may be a little long. >.> I hope you’ll forgive me. XD (But really, I usually take nearly this long to talk about just one month, so doing two and a half all at once might even be more efficient. XD)

WRITING ISH

As you probably know, I did Camp NaNo in April! ‘Twas super fun! πŸ˜€

I wrote a total of 12,085 words for Camp, which is not bad, considering my original goal was 5K.

I worked on a few short stories for that, including A Tale of Two Boxes.

I’m calling Camp NaNo April 2017 a great success. πŸ™‚

I slacked a bit on the writing front in May after all the Camp NaNo writing; I only wrote six-or-seven-hundread words, but I have been doing some plotting for my Kedran’s Wood series, Starrellian series, and The Siren and the Skyship. I also did #WIPjoy (on Twitter) in April for the 5-year anniversary of The Owl of Kedran’s Wood. I had so much fun playing around in that world for that and my anniversary post! ^_^

These days, I’m scribbling snatches of KW2, The Other Half of Everything, and a short story I’m writing that started as a dare, continued through Camp, and which I hope to finish sometime soon; it’s a fairytale-esque short story called Invisible Beauty.

So it’s slow, but I’m still poking along in my writerly pursuits! I currently am having a hard time pinning myself down to focus on one thing at a time. I’m a slitherer-outer like Howl, and not proud of it. *cough* If I would just tackle one project, I might actually get stuff done! *sigh* But I also need to work on making sitting-down-to-write into a habit, because I’ve slacked on that in the last couple of years.

In other news, I ABSOLUTELY LOVE SCRIVENER! ❀ Ahem. I guess you probably knew that, but it needed repeating. *cough*

SNIPPETS ISH

With semi-amusing commentaries about them from moi.

[I’m not posting snippets of A Tale of Two Boxes, since you can read the whole thing HERE. :P]

The sun sank relentlessly toward the horizon, staining the path and sky and grey stone castle with urgent shades of red.

Invisible Beauty

[Time-limits are fun. The sun setting is a bad thing here, in case you can’t tell…]

***

In a last desperate rush, she pounded down a long winding staircase into the depths of the castle dungeon, and there at last she found the sorrowful princeβ€”chained in his own keep.

Invisible Beauty

[I’m currently stuck there. Great place to stop, no? ;)]

***

But, I reasoned, it wasn’t the end of the world. It could be worse. Teague could have been an axe-murderer instead of just a writer. I’d live with it. I’d have to.

The Other Half of Everything

[Because only Meridian would compare writers to axe-murderers. -_-]

***

β€œI’m through playing games,” Tare growled. β€œWhat do you want?”

β€œWell, being able to talk with you is a start. You’re a hard one to find, Tare.”

β€œI’m glad to hear it.”

The Secret of Kedran’s Wood

[Because if there’s one thing Tare doesn’t like, it’s being found. Because that normally entails someone looking for him. Which is almost never good…]

READING ISH

I think I read about 16 books since my last Ishness, before June hit?

Notable books read:

  • Hexwood by Diana Wynne Jones, which is my favorite book so far this year.
  • Well, The Fatal Tree by Stephen R. Lawhead might tie for that spot, actually. O_O (NEW FAVORITE SERIES. ❀ Seriously, just read them, people. Book one is The Skin Map. Go. I can wait…)
  • Other masterpieces include Sentinel by Jamie Foley (SO MUCH FUN) and The Beast of Talesend by Kyle Robert Schultz (SO FUNNY, and Beauty and the Beast retelling and just hilarious).

But really, they’re nearly all “notable”. I’ve enjoyed almost all of these, SO MUCH. ^_^ Much good reading of late!

I should do a reading roundup for this year… Maybe I’ll do a half-way-point post on my book blog in early July, rounding up my reading so far with brief thoughts? Sound like a good idea? If anyone’s interested…

WATCHING ISH

I actually haven’t been watching many new-to-me movies of note, lately. Who has time for movies when there are SO MANY EPIC BOOKS TO READ?? But I did see a couple of interest…

  • Shipwrecked — One of my earliest childhood memories of movies; I think it’s been living subconsciously in my mind and kind of defined epic when I was little. It was amazing to see it again and see how similar and how different it was than I remembered! (Like how the characters are SO YOUNG but when I was little I assumed they were practically grown-up, like… like… old TEENAGERS or something. XD …And now even teenagers, of which I was one not so long ago, seem young. Time is strange.)
  • Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales (Pirates 5) — More nauticalness! Yes, I went and saw this at the theater. Some of it was a mess, but as long as one ignored that, overall it was better than I thought it would be, and I basically had a blast. XD (Not the after-credits scene though. NO. JUST NO. O____O) But much funny, and it was fun to be back with some old character friends. πŸ™‚ And and and I WAS SO EXCITED ABOUT CERTAIN THINGS AND JUST YES. It’s about Will and Elizabeth’s son and he’s trying to break Will’s curse and just alskdjlfkj all the adorbz oh my word. ❀ Not a perfect movie, but overall fun and I’m glad I did get to see it. πŸ™‚
  • Man of Steel — Yep, I FINALLY saw this. I know it came out ages ago, but… *shrug* It’s actually my first Superman movie? Somehow I just haven’t ever watched one. (Too busy with Batman and Marvel movies, I suppose?) Not my favorite, but overall it was pretty fun and I… guess I really enjoyed it. πŸ™‚ (And of COURSE Superman’s dad was the Gladiator…)
  • Studio C — Mainly, if I have time to watch something and am not reading instead, I’ve been watching Studio C. Because yes, I finally got addicted to them. XD I’d heard them mentioned by many friends before, but didn’t really know much about them and hadn’t ever watched any, but I recently got absolutely hooked and from time to time disappear in the black hole of hilarity that is Sudio C and their addictingness. XD

LISTENING ISH

  • Lindsey Sterling. Because all the gorgeous.
  • Also Cara Dillon because pretty voice.
  • And my 2016 NaNo playlist somehow resurfaced so I’ve been listening to The News Boys and Skillet etc., which is making me think of my story The Library and the Stars and… yeah.

BLOGGING ISH

Blogging has been somewhat tricky sometimes, due to less-than-stable internet. >.>

I recently (and currently) have extremely unreliable internet, which loves to go out for days at a time seemingly for a lark. -_-

But I do what I can!

Here are my latest posts, in case you missed them; and/or just for my own personal reference of what I’ve posted lately. XD (Feel free to skip this bit!)

Posts on The Page Dreamer in the last two and a half months (in reverse order):

Posts around here in the last 2 and a half months (also in reverse order):

LIFE ISH

I don’t even know why I put this category here because I really don’t do anything interesting that can’t fall under most of the other categories. XD

I started a bullet-journal around when I posted my last Ishness (I know I had mentioned it) and it’s… almost full already? O_O Ahem. So I’ll probably have to find a new one come July. The past couple of months have been an interesting experiment in streamlining my to-do list processes. It’s very similar to what I used to do, just slightly tweaked. BUT I LOVE IT AND IT’S GREAT. I mean, it makes me realize how behind I am and how I always bite off more than I can chew, but at least it’s all tidily listed. πŸ˜€ Hee. It’s been my constant companion and SO helpful. And I’m so glad I decided not to try to make it fancy because who even has time for that. IT’S JUST LISTS, PRETTY MUCH. Which makes me happy. πŸ˜›

I’ve also been to a couple of writer workshops, which were interesting; got to see a visiting dear friend which absolutely made my year; went to a library sale; went kayaking and got an atrocious sunburn but had so much fun. That’s mostly it in the excitement category.

And just… life, ya know? πŸ™‚

SUMMER PLANS ISH

Somehow, June has begun (WHAT?? Help me out here. Time is insane and definitely up to something mischeivous) and so begins the long double-month of June-and-July. We should just call it Junely and be done with it. 61 days of a long, hot, summer month that starts with Ju and I therefore mix up.

As for my plans during Junely and August-ish perhaps… well. Let’s see.

  • Reading/Reviewing: I have much reading and much reviewing to do… Kind of behind on that. *eyes stack of books I need to review soonish and twitches* I review slower than I read, and therefore I must do some catching up. XD
  • Blogging: Posts you might see around here and my other blog are mostly… erm… reviews? *surprise* (Sorry, I’ve just been reading SO MANY good books that need reviewing. XD) I might throw a couple of other ideas in there as well. And I’m going to be part of something very exciting, blog-wise, come July, so stay tuned! πŸ˜€ I think y’all are going to be pretty excited about it. πŸ˜‰ Haven’t thought ahead to August blogging yet (good grief, let’s keep it down to a sane two-month plan of blogging. *cough*).
  • Writing: Just for the record, I currently do not intend to do JuNo (June NaNo) or Camp NaNo in July. Just… I probably won’t. (Don’t quote me on it though, in case the lure of cabins and stats-graphs is too much for me.) I do, however, hope to work on writing, regardless. We’ll see if anything happens. I have tentative plans. Fingers crossed that I can do something about them. I DO WANT TO WRITE AGAIN.

So yes, the usual things are up for the summer. Reading, writing, etc. I don’t have plans (at the moment) for anything exciting or vacationy. (I’m not going to Realm Makers, for instance. *sobbing like an octopus trying to find matching shoes*)

Basically, I DON’T KNOW WHAT MY PLANS ARE BECAUSE I’M AN INDECISIVE OTTER WHO JUST WANTS TO PLAY WITH THE LATEST SHINY THING AND THEN FLIT ON TO THE NEXT ONE. I don’t do decisions or plans. Ahem.

(Why did I call it summer plans, then? Shush, do not ask me this.)

FIN (ISH)

SO. There you have an update on what this writer has been doing of late!

I’m kind of in shock at how far into the year we are, but at the same time I feel like I’ve been very busy, so. I guess that’s good?

I can’t imagine why people would like hearing about what’s up with me, but sometimes I hear ’tis so, hence I hope this was at least a little interesting!

What do you think? What’s been up with you, my dearest Roadlings? Any summer plans? Thanks for reading! πŸ™‚

      YAY! I’m so excited you’re reading the Bright Empires books! I love them SO MUCH. ^_^ I actually just started re-reading The Skin Map, in fact. XD I’m going to re-read the whole series aloud to the fam, and it’s going to be amazing. ❀ I hope you enjoy the rest of the series! You'll have to tell me what you think when you finish! πŸ˜€

  1. I’m not going to Realm Makers either, so we can mourn the lack of matching shoes together (I love that metaphor and now I’m going to use it when I get a good chance).

    My sister also likes Studio C very much. I like some of their sketches, like Practical Philosophy and the Clue Murder mystery scandal. We quote their lines a lot.

    Axe-murderers and writers. . . you could say the only difference is that our mess isn’t literal, but sometimes. . .

  3. Best wishes for all your summer plans! I feel ya about having a hard time picking one project to write. I’ve taken kind of a year-long hiatus from writing due to college and now am trying to furiously bang out a first draft this summer before school consumes all my time again.
    Ahhhh Pirates!!!! I can’t wait to see that movie. I know it’s gotten not-so-great reviews, but hey, it’s a pirates movie. πŸ™‚
    Anyhoo, so fun to read an ishness post from you! Have a wonderful summer!

  4. *sneaks on despite hiatus through the beauty of library wifi*

    I lovelovelove your snippets, as always. And I would say that the writer/axe-murderer comparison isn’t that strange. After all, isn’t there a pretty famous story somewhere about a writer who goes psycho and becomes an axe murderer? (And if a writer doesn’t write, axe-murderer-dom isn’t really that unlikely; we have to do something with our insanity.)

    I’m glad you enjoyed Man of Steel. I think that was the first superhero movie I ever watched. (It’s also the only DC movie I’ve watched to date; Marvel is MUCH more fun.) Also, should I watch the Pirates of the Caribbean movies? I didn’t see them when everyone else did, but the internet seems to love them and they seem fun and I’m already watching a bunch of other everyone-else-saw-these-ages-ago-and-I’m-just-now-joining-the-club movies, so part of me says I should watch them but I’d like opinions.

    And I am very sad that you aren’t doing July Camp. 😦 But I understand if you don’t want the pressure. (It will probably help you make sure you write, though! And I’m doing it and I’d love the company! But no need to feel obligated.)

    Oh, and if it makes you feel better, I’m not going to Realm Makers either. πŸ˜‰

    • *so clever of you* (The beauty of library wifi is a beautimous thing, indeed. *nods* Also I’m so touched you would bother to read my post while on hiatus! ^_^)

      Eep, thank you! And… eheh… I suppose SOME authors are that way. πŸ˜‰ Not sure about the famous story you mentioned, but I wouldn’t be surprised if one such exists. πŸ˜› (Valid point.)

      Oh, fun! Yeah, ’twas an enjoyable movie, and that must be special if it was your first. πŸ˜€ Marvel is definitely more fun, but they’re very different flavors and I think I can enjoy both. *shrug* YES, I totally recommend watching the Pirates of the Caribbean movies!! πŸ˜€ They’re really good. Or… at least watch the first one, because it’s super classic and awesome! ^_^ (The second suffered from middle-of-the-trilogy-ness and got weird; the third was EPIC but also weird; 4th was okay; 5th was insane but fun. XD) And hey, never too late to jump on the fun-movie-bandwagon. πŸ˜€ I’m very behind on much movie watching myself. So, in summary, definitely at least wach the first Pirates movie because it’s awesome! From there, you can decide. πŸ™‚

      Oh dear, now I am very sad that you are very sad. 😦 But if I do decide to do Camp, I know right where to find you! πŸ˜‰ (I didn’t plan to do last one and it happened, sooo… you never know. :P)

      Eheh, we can be sad non-Realm-Maker-octopi together, then. πŸ˜‰

      • Well, you’re awesome, so of course I’d read it.

        I think it was by Stephen King? IDK, I haven’t read it. I just heard it exists somewhere.

        Watch Pirates. Got it. *adds to list* Hopefully I get to it this summer. That and Indiana Jones.

        And last time you did fabulously and were the first one to win and went well over your goal! So obviously the not-going-to-do-it-nah-actually-I’m-doing-it approach works well for you.

          Ohhh. I think I’ve heard about that Stephen King, if it’s the one I’m thinking of, but I thought it was a fan of the author’s books who, like, kidnapped the author and threatened to kill him if he wouldn’t change it so a certain character didn’t die, that the author had killed off. Or something. (Of course, maybe there were both. XD *has never read Stephen King, so.)

          Indiana Jones is fun too. XD I particularly like the third one (the Quest for the Holy Grail one); the first one is classic too. πŸ˜€ Temple of Doom I did NOT like. o.o The fourth one’s okay. (These are just my opinions. :P) Pirates and Indy are definitely classics! πŸ˜€

          Heheh, also the making-small-goals-and-then-massively-overachieving goes well too. XD (Because I hate falling behind so I make goals I KNOW I can achieve so they don’t challenge me and then I just go over. >.> I don’t know if this is a good or bad thing.)

  8. Celti Ishness post! πŸ˜€ My fave! I’ve missed these posts!

    You did so awesome with Camp! And it’s okay you haven’t been writing quite as much since then. You wrote a lot during Camp! And you’re still working on stories a lot, even if it’s not just pure writing. There’s more to storymaking than just writing. *nods* You say you’re a slitherer-outer like Howl and should stick to one project but…I’m the opposite and it doesn’t always work well for me. I don’t allow myself to work on anything until I’ve finished whatever project I’m on. But then when I put that project off (which I usually do) it means I’m not doing ANYTHING writerly, since I’m not “allowed” to work on anything until said project is done. So I just…don’t write. It’s pretty bad… While you are ALWAYS working on something, because you allow yourself multiple projects at once. I may need to try that! My system doesn’t always work… Eheh. All the to say, I admire how you juggle so many projects and always have something going!

    AAAAAAHHHHHHHHH. SNIPPETS. AND THEY ARE SO BEAUTIFUL HALP. I NEED TO READ INVISIBLE BEAUTY ASAP. Like…all the gorgeousness. o.o I’m drooling over here and in desperate need of more beautiful Celti fairytale-ness. I LOVE.

    Oh my word, Meridian. xD I mean…writers are essentially similar to axe-murderers. We do kill an awful lot of people. *cough*

    And Tare. TAAAARE. I literally get a thrill every single time I read a snippet of his. Obviously he likes being hard to find. Oh my goodness. xD But who is talking to him??? Is it Greg? I feel like it’s Greg… *glares*

    It looks like you’ve read soooo many good books lately! And I would be ALLLL over a half-year reading roundup. YESH. I LOVE THIS IDEA!!!!!

    Man of Steel wasn’t my favorite movie either. Although it’s been a LONG time since I’ve watched it, I need to give it another chance. But…I just love Marvel movies too much to be very interested in the DC ones. They’re all too dark with no humor and not as much…heart as Marvel movies. Does that make sense? I don’t know. I’m just a Marvel gal.
    (Also, how dare you leave a link to Studio C’s YouTube page! I’m having to use every ounce of will I own to not click that link and waste the day away. :P)

    You’re doing something exciting blogging wise in July??? NOW I’M SO CURIOUS. I can’t wait to see what it issss! All your summer plans look great! And I totally get not making big, solid plans. Sometimes it’s much more fun and easier to just go with the flow. That’s been my life lately. Making plans can actually be MORE stressful than just seeing where life takes you and letting yourself get distracted by shiny things. xD

      Man of Steel was kind of fun. Marvel movies are definitely more fun, on the whole. XD Buuut I did love the first Batman movie a LOT. I agree DC tends to be darker, though I've only seen three Batmans and this and one other Superman movie, so it's a little hard to compare. *shrug* I'm aware you're a Marvel gal. πŸ˜‰ I just… tend to enjoy movies in general, though. *shrug*

      I LOVE YOUR MONSTER COMMENT THANK YOUUUU! *hugs it and you* (It didn't actually go to spam, but I'm so ashamed of WordPress for EVER doing that to my precious Lauri. -_-)

      Thank you so muuuuuch! ❀

  9. Oh my goodness, sitting down and making writing a habit is SO HARD. If you ever figure out how to do it, let me know… or if I figure it out, I’ll let you know. :p It seems like such a simple thing, and then you try and do it and it doesn’t work… I guess that’s why it needs to be made into a habit.
    Anyway, Studio C is great, and I giggled internally at your “Fin (ish).”
