The last minute Nano change

Okay, you know how I have a community all set up for the NaNo this year and research and an outline and summary and everything? Well, funny thing about that... life is what happens when you are making other plans.

I had another story spring into mind, with characters, plot, world, and so forth nearly fully formed. It's the story of a necromancer named Heck (Hector Vargas) , his pushy sister Charmaine, his zombie secretary Rhonda, his skeleton butler Mr. Bones, and his intern Newt. It's kinda cute and funny, it maybe might be a YA story (but I don't know if I can write clean enough for YA - I have a kinda foul mouth and I tend to write some bad jokes in), some sort of supernatural genre maybe.

Anyhow, because I don't want to lose the gift of a story that's pretty much sprang into my head and danced around saying 'Write me! Write me!' , last minute change it is.

The new community I will be posting my writing from is heckromancy - please join if you want to read along as I will be posting the entire novel as I progress, friends only.

Sorry for any inconvenience.

Michael's Story : The comic

We're working on a new and exciting project - turning my Michael's story into comics. The very talented bartolome is going to be the artist - her art is amazing, and I'm so excited that she's going to be working with me on this. Check out her sketch of Michael under the cut.

I'm going to be scripting a mini-comic to start with - it should be interesting since I'm not really a big comic reader and I have no idea how to script for comics. But I promise you that by the time we're through, it will rock.

The comic will be published by those lovely folks at Dandelion Studios.

I'm really really excited about this.

Michael's Story - the short version

I finally came up with an uber-short description of Michael's story that i like:

Michael's story is narrated by Michael Malone, a young musician with social anxiety. It is a story about bonds, both lasting and broken, and about the search for individual identity in a world full of unexpected circumstances. Michael tells his story directly to the reader, as a collection of memories that span a period from childhood to present time. It is currently broken up into two separate collections: Never Cry Wolf, which covers the period from his childhood to mid-twenties ; and Malone, which covers from his mid-twenties to late thirties.

Buy a book? They're cheap!

Some as low as 75 cents!

Check out our Half.com store to see what books we have for sale. There's only a handful up there now, but we're going to be adding more as time goes on - we have hundreds of books to sell.

I recommend Master and Commander (it's a seafaring adventure, not anything kinky for you pervs out there ;) and the accompanying lexicon that tells you all you need to know about the series and the terminology.

We're also doing a video game trade thing on this site, so check that out too!

Log in to all your accounts at once

http://ljlogin.e-space.gweep.net/

"Are you a Firefox user with multiple LiveJournal accounts (whether for roleplaying or other purposes)? Weary of constantly having to go back to the login page to switch accounts, especially if you forget and do something while logged into the wrong one? Well, now you're in luck, because LJlogin will help you by showing you who you're logged in as and -- if you use Firefox's Password Manager -- allowing you to switch between them."

This is pretty much the most amazing thing ever. It works with both LJ and IJ and now I can be logged in to all my accounts everywhere at once.

*worship*

Thought other Firefox using players might like this!

Sunnydale OSI: Looking for the popular crowd! (and the unpopular crowd, too!)



Calling all Buffyverse players!

Now's the time to join sunnydaleosi if you are looking to get in on a good plot. We could use some popular girls cheerleaders and jocks- Cordelia, Harmony, Larry, any original characters - to run for Homecoming queen and king . We've been having a lot of fun with this plot - designing and posting posters for our characters, trying to campaign honestly or dishonestly, and so forth. Homecoming not your character's style? Join Michael Czajak at the Sunset club for the anti-homecoming - you're invited.

Put in an application today at sunnydaleosi - apply with a quality original character, or check out our list of available canons.

This is just one of many plots we have going on! We have - plots, character development, dynamic worlds that change with your actions, excellent characters players and mod, an IRC chat room, character development questions, drabble topics, character of the month and interview with a character features, detailed game information and maps, and lots of fun!

We don't have drama, Mary Sues, set post or tag lengths (quality over quantity, baby!), purple prose, set 'ships', controlling mods, posting order, or pre-planned plot outcomes.

YOUR characters and their actions affect the world, the way it should be.

Check out our full ad here:
http://community.livejournal.com/arcology/23571.html


OR! Message a mod at Lab Arc Designs to pitch your character concept and give a sample over AIM to bypass the application process. Don't be shy, we're friendly.
