Cory Doctorow

I Write Like. Analyze your writing!




I tried this thing again, and I like the results better. Last time, I got Bram Stoker (probably because what I had written was in first-person). This result is from my current NaNoWriMo novel.

I'm not going to make the 50K goal by the end of the month, but that wasn't my aim. It's gotten me into the habit of writing every day, which is what I intended. The story I've had simmering in my brain for ages is starting to take shape, and is going places I didn't expect. New characters are showing up, and I like them. I'm getting better at blending dialog with descriptive passages. I'm learning to just get the words down, and worry about editing later. Most of all, I've had fun with it.

This is the first time I've had a serious run at writing a novel. Last time I tried, my story just didn't support a novel-length size. My forté has always been shorter fiction. Novels are a whole different animal. I hope I can keep up the momentum, and actually finish it. I really want to tell this story.

It's been a while since I've done a meme, and since it's the new moon, I figured why not. :)



You were born during a Waning Crescent moon

This phase occurs right before the new moon.





- what it says about you -


You appreciate closure. It bothers you when people promise to do something and then don't follow through. You want to able to right the wrongs of the past. Studying history motivates you to improve the world. You put a lot of hope in the future and look forward to seeing technology and progress improve our lives.


What phase was the moon at on your birthday? Find out at Spacefem.com






Actually, that's fairly accurate.

first skunk cabbage, originally uploaded by Lizzie~Belle.

Look! More green things coming out of the ground! OK, it's skunk cabbage, but still. Green and growing. :)

In rising back up from bending down to take this picture, I pulled something in my ribcage. Ouch. Getting older really sucks sometimes. :P

*****

That meme that's going around (as they do):

2011 - living by myself in a one-bedroom apartment in Westfield, MA
2001 - I lived in Roslindale with Pauletta, her two kitties, and her snake.
1991 - I lived in Quincy with Holly, and my kitty Robin.
1981 - Was at college, then moved back in with my parents that May.
1971 - Lived in Clifton Park, NY with my family.
1961 - In utero until August, then Deposit, NY.

So, yeah. Gonna be 50 this year. O_o How did that happen?

Gakked from [livejournal.com profile] barbarienne and several others:


-Describe me in one word... just one single word. Positive or negative.

-Leave your word in a comment before looking at what words others have used.

-Then, if you feel the need, copy and paste the meme to your journal to find out how people will describe you when limited to one word.

...and because I just don't have anything else to say right now, I'm reposting the "random things" meme I just did on Facebook. Sorry to those of you who overlap. ;)

***

I've been tagged enough times that I suppose I should do this "random things" meme. Because I am contrary, I'm not going to number them or tag anyone. Do it if you feel like it.

* I like to cook, but I rarely do. It's just not as much fun to cook for one.

* I always have music playing in my head, like a running soundtrack.

* I don't consider myself a geek, but I do have some geeky tendencies. I love Star Trek and BSG and Doctor Who, but I'm not a gamer or computer nerd.

* I have a terrible memory. I come by it honestly: my mother is the same.

* I love kids, but I've never wanted any of my own. I like being an auntie.

* I have a bazillion beads, and I really should do something with them.

* I love walking in the woods more than just about anything.

* I don't have a very highly developed sense of smell. Most things smell "good" or "not good" but I can't identify most smells.

* I'm very tactile; I love the texture of clothes as much as color or style.

* I'm a wuss when it comes to violent, graphic movies. I refuse to watch "Pulp Fiction" and most horror. Scary is OK, just not bloody or brutal.

* I think my perfect job would be "blogger." No, seriously.

* I really could not care less about the Superbowl. Especially the commercials.

* I'm stopping now to make brownies.
(and the brownies are now in the oven)

Your Word is "Fearless"



You see life as your one chance to experience everything, and you just go for it!

You believe the biggest risk is being afraid and missing out on something amazing.



Sometimes your fearlessness means you're daring. You enjoy risky activities.

And sometimes your fearlessness means you're courageous. You're brave enough to do the right thing, even when it's scary.



I don't think of myself as especially fearless, but if this quiz says it's so, then I must be. *g*

Your result for The Famous (and Not So Famous) Art Quiz...

Art Lover

82% Artiste!

Art Lover: You scored 82% Artiste. You may not have any formal training, but you are a big fan of art, at least what you've been able to see in your local museum. Try broadening your horizons a little and exploring some lesser known artists.

I'm firmly in the "I know what I like, but..." camp. I'm not a big fan of modern art, or even Impressionism (except for Monet). I do know the difference between Monet and Manet, though. I love looking at art, but it doesn't matter too much to me who painted it. Usually.

1. Take a picture of yourself right now.

2. Don't change your clothes, don't fix your hair...just take a picture.

3. Post that picture with NO editing.

4. Post these instructions with your picture.




(The black thing is my headset)

Bonus! Toe shot (with spiffy new nail color):
