I stumbled across this YouTube user by accident, but stayed because she is uber talented.
She's got a few Doctor Who videos, Sherlock, and whatnot...haven't looked through them all, but this one is just fantastic:

I signed up for a Creative Writing class at Uni because well, I could use the practice. And I needed the credit hours, but that's beside the point.

Anyway, I was reading the syllabus and decided that I'm terrified of this professor already.

We're going to have these 'workshop' things where everyone critiques your writing and there's a question-answer thing, all kinds of craziness...which is fine and dandy, probably even helpful. But then I got to this line:

"The writer will read the first two pages of his/her piece before the class, and listen to suggestions..."

Okay, reading in front of the class? It's not nearly as awful as that public speaking class I had a few years back, but still. Writing stories to be critiqued is one thing, reading them aloud to the class is quite another.

Add to that the fact that we're expected to turn in 5-20 pages of writing for this critique thing, and I'm in full-on panic mode. It's been a while since I've written anything that wasn't fanfiction. And I'm pretty sure that won't cut it for this.

So I've started writing already, even though the first class meeting isn't until...later today. About twelve hours from now, in fact. Hoorah.

Well I'm in Arizona now, and everything is so FLAT. I'm used to being basically surrounded by the Appalachians, so its odd to have my view of the horizon completely unobstructed...[Oh, and the guy sitting next to me on the plane was reading Catching Fire..I may have fangirl-ed for a moment]

Anywho, a friend of mine posted this on Facebook and I thought I would share it with you guys. It's definitely been motivating for me to just get writing and stop trying to make everything absolutely perfect the first time around...

Well this is certainly turning out to be one of the more exciting days of my summer so far.

I’m typing this into Word right now [Friday] because our power’s out and therefore so is the internet. (I’m at a neighbor’s house right now to post this- they have a small generator) But that could be a whole post in and of itself…


I'm having so much fun right now. )

It really bothered me that the cover for the Doctor Who Series 1-2 Soundtrack didn't have the ninth Doctor on it. Just Ten and Rose.

See? I mean,Seasons 1 and 2...half of that was the Ninth Doctor! So I made my own. Because I have way too much fun with this stuff...


Manips ahead! )
