That time of the year again, huh?  
Right, eh. Anyone else doing the nano this year?

Writing projects (ongoing)  
Well, as always, September is never boring ;)

Work's been as insane as always. It's September and working at a uni bookstore, well. If you've attended uni, you'll know what I mean. September is where we, jokingly, say the Hellmouth opens.

On top of it, I've been fighting with a headcold for the past week - which has left the cough from hell behind.

However, this isn't a whine-post. Far from it. I figured as I miss the online blogging I used to do, I might as well get into the habit of, well, keeping a journal again *g* (it's not a diary, shut up).

Dear diary

I've still got my ongoing writing project of a ficlet per week. Not all of them turn out equally good, but I'm writing, so I'm not complaining. I was worried when I started the project that I might end up with only those and without enough time/ideas for longer stories.

Yeah, no, that didn't happen LOL. Those of you who have been with me for years, know that I tend to join the insanity of NaNoWriMo every year in November. 50K words in 30 days. Editing happens later, trust me ;). The past few years I've used it to get fanfic done (before that, yes, I did write original for it, but none of that's online - just in the digital drawer).

This year's project? Well, let's just say that I'm re-writing WW2 history, drawing out the terror of war well into the 1950s. I'm sticking with X-men this time around again - and what started as an inspiration from a piece of fanart (and the artist was happy to hear so) has now started to grow into something that will mean 50K words will be a piece of cake to reach ;)

The last one I wrote was heavily centered around the pairing, this one will be more centered around a daring unplanned mission to stop Shaw from taking over the world and if Hitler dies in the process, I don't think anyone will complain. Thankfully I have WW2 enthusiasts in my circle of friends and I know they'll happily supply me with reasons why D-day didn't happen or failed and how the world might be a completely different place if you change a few things. I'm actually looking forward to getting started on writing it, but I've still got a little more than a month for plotting before I start writing it on November 1st.
