I have a beta...sort of...

...hee! Well, my email does indeed work! Alas, my beta is busy and unsure if she can help me.

That's ok - I am generally optimistic.

And I signed up for NaNoWriMo! I only have 4,000+ words.

Am going to work today - hopefully get to 10,000 words.

Words are quite small when you think about it...

New Structure to FanFic

I did a HUGE writing session yesterday with my fan fic. I don't have the particulars up yet - I have tried to contact a beta to read my work. So far, no answers. I am beginning to wonder if my email works - except I do hear from my meet up group.

Anyhow, I do want to read through it before I post.

Alas- it is tough going for an Empiricist author... is National write a novel month! I am a huge Meg Cabot fan and she posted about it on her blog. I should be inspired to complete my work - In the Blink of Her Eyes - but, ALAS, I find myself bogged down with facts and details and that pesky sense of wanting to get it right!

In morning traffic, as well as morning bed lurking, I found myself thinking of a new way to present the story. It is really a love triangle isn't it - Severus loves Lily, James loves Lily, Lily loved someone else...a long time ago (my own character creation), and really Lily loved Sev, but he's a bad boy and Lily hates James because he's a bad boy especially to her Sev. But then she has to face reality and James must become civilized (i.e. grow up). And Lily decides to torture Snape (notice the name change) JUST a little bit by being nice to James - afterall, she is hurting, and on the outside Snape doesn't appear bothered, but occupied in his own dark arts pleasures...

...and as I was brainstorming I threw in a humorous Pervy Peter Pettigrew story line - rat that he is, goes sneaking into the prefect bathrooms - ha!

And then I thought of a song for Peeves to sing:

Pesky, Pervy, Pettigrew
pottering around the pots
popping up amongst the towels
just to peak a alot!

Which was really bad...very bad writing, but amused me for a mo'. It is WAY better than all the snogging scenes I have imagined for Lily and Severus - I envision heavy use of Felix Felicitas on his part!

Anyhow, must go teach!
