captain91: (Default)

I had a hell of a lot of fun with this prompt, I haven't really gone into that much detail creating a sim before. Anyway, on with the show!
This was written for a prompt at [livejournal.com profile] charloft, a writing community. Ashton and Ariella and both creations from an original novel of mine. I really enjoyed making them, seeing them come to life and play with the faces. I just wish I had a way to add a scar to Ashton's cheek.

Ashton: This is me and my sis Ariella. *whispers* I was really rather kind to her, she's a lot more --
Ariella: Oi! Like you can talk! You're not nearly that presentable! Why, I've seen zombies with more flesh on their faces!
Ashton: How d--

Mun *cough* excuse me? Not the time for arguing

Ashton: ok, ok, sorry (spoil sport). This is us just standing around in a field or… something


Come under the covers to see more of me... and her... ugh that sounds wrong! )


If you are interested in owning them you can find these sims here:
Ashton
Ariella
Household (both of them related)

Some of Ashton’s clothes are also there. He probably left them in his last conquest's bedroom...

And there came the reason, a gentle wave to her hips as she waked. She carried two bottles of coke in one hand two ice cream in the other. For a few seconds he was stunned into motionlessness, gazing at the long legs and the tiny bikini before he thought, hey, that's my girl, my girl, I should go help.  He jumped up, somebody actually fancied him!

Ashton puffed and panted, trying his hardest to keep up. And this was only a warm up! God, I thought I was fit!  He was out of breath, he was tired, he was aching, but he had to keep going. The army marching towards them, ever forwards, never giving up, were five times the size of his at least. His men couldn't afford to molly-coddle him, he had to lead these people, make them have faith in him – he just hoped non of them ever saw him training!

He looked up, watching their look out circle in the morning sun. The golden scales shimmered like he was a ball of fire.

 

"Incoming Sir!"

 

A loud bugle tore through the subdued life of the camp. People around him grabbed their mounts and climbed on. Lions, komodo dragons, every lizard imaginable. One man even grew a pair of wings. Ashton saddled his dragon.

 

Yeah, why read fantasy books here? He thought.  Just join the army.

A double use drabble, both for the thursday prompt in [community profile] charloft, and for my 100 drabbles of summer table. Ashton and Kim, from a novel in progress (well, more like in planning)

Whether it is lightning, static, the kind between two people or the kind that lives inside your wall, give us a short short on electricity

Kim trembled. Ash looked into her eyes, just below him. He was covering her, trying to protect her from the fighting. He opened his mouth, platitudes on his lips, when he saw the naked fury burning in her caramel-brown eyes. He frowned.

Suddenly she snarled, an animalistic sound he'd never heard. She rolled him off of her, standing in one fluent move, his hung off her shirt, failing to keep her down.

"Enough!" she screamed, eyes blazing. White light flew up around her, lightning from a storm cloud. It flew out hitting enemies, leaving friends unharmed.

"What the hell, Kim?"

Right, sorry in advance for any spamming over the next couple of month's, but i have joined charloft's 100 drabbles of summer. 100 drabbles in 100 days, i very much doubt i will finish, but at least I will have written more than I otherwise would!

These will be a mixture of fan fition and original, I will find a way to show what's what, but as of yet i don't know how.

Without further ado...

Cross-Posted from [livejournal.com profile] charloft. Let me know what you think.
Written from the point of view of my protagonist a few days after he finds himself trapped in an alien world, having to deal with things beyond his understanding.

xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" / 

Make a list of memories you have of your mother. Whether good, bad, or indifferent - there's bound to be some memories there. If you never knew or can't remember your mother, feel free to make a list of someone else you consider a maternal figure.

 

 

My mother

 

I remember the smell of Christmas dinner waking me in the morning,

I remember the tender smile and hug, even when I pretended to object,

I remember her silently sitting down with chocolate ice cream and two spoons when my first girl friend dumped me.

And she never talked, was just silent support

I remember when…

 

Oh hell, I'm sorry, I can't do this. Poem About the Father Instead )

 

 

Author's note: I know it said your mother or a maternal figure, but the father was the one that really grabbed me. I hope this is OK

captain91: (moral vampire - red)

People say 'write what you know,' so maybe that is why there's such a plethora of stories out there about writers? (And gay vampires)
What areas of personal expertise do you incorporate into your chars? Or do you take the opposite point of view, and deliberately try to write about chars who are unlike you, and have radically different experiences from your own?


If you're writing chars who have personal experiences that are drastically different from your own, how do you get into their heads? Do you exhaustively research their backgrounds and professions, or write in a fantasy realm so you get to create the world from scratch?

Well, I breed and train horses, fight mythical creatures most days, forge my weapons and run a farm. That and I live with a witch and a tyrant. So yes, my life is pretty much identical to a lot of my characters.

 

...Wait, what? Computer games and living with my parents doesn't count? Well damn, I guess my life is nothing like my characters. Ok, I think I should start with my parents aren't that bad… most of the time. Well, I say most of the time...

Let me explain a bit about my life. I'm nineteen, disabled and bedbound. I have been for several years now. I conduct my entire life online, I'm on here all day, and a lot of the night writing, reading and playing games. I've always had an interest in writing, but lately I've begun to consider it as a more serious potential career. I know I am nowhere near publishing level yet (for one thing I've been writing mainly fan-fiction until now) but I plan to learn.

I'm slowly trying most genres out, but sci-fi or fantasy are the ones that call to me the most. I guess it's part escapism, and part practicality since I'm not restricted to accurately depicting lifestyles and locations I can't see for myself. The novel plan I have in my head started out as a daydream of a bored girl - I think I was reading a fantasy novel and thinking about aspects I did or didn't like - when it said to me "Earth to Laura, you've just plotted a damn novel in your daydream, write it down and share it!"

'Write what you know' is a kind of limited concept for me, since I haven't been in the world at large for most of my recent life. That said though, I do have areas that I could draw on to make an accurate and serious tale:

  • Being the only kid in a wheelchair in a school not well adapted, and with unhelpful staff and students alike
  • Being bullied for something out of my hands
  • Being constantly in pain and having to watch people do the things I wanted to do
  • Hospitals; stays away from parents, having the final say in my care from when I was eleven (my parents always gave me the truth about what doctors said, regardless of what they suggested. I really appreciated that as it was my body and life that were affected, but it meant it also put more stress on me)
  • Dealing with the rifts it's caused in my family, having to live this way

Those are just a few of the issues I could put into fiction to make an interesting story, in my opinion anyway. I've had ideas before, but it always makes me feel really awkward, like I'm laying myself naked on the page. They never get far, but maybe that will change when I get more confident in my writing. I think I also sort of live vicariously through my characters; I can't go out and do things, but they can, which is a possible other reason why I don't write what I know more often.

And finally, the core experience that we here all share is that we are in some form, writers. Are any of your chars writers, or does the thought of putting pen to paper bore them stiff?
If your chars are writers, what do they write?

 

I don't think any of my characters are writers, at least not as their main profession, but I guess that again could be to do with me living through my characters, therefore they wouldn't do the same things I do.

captain91: (so glad i met you)

Hi again guys,

[livejournal.com profile] charloft  cross-post and Yep, we can do them completely out of date order or on the wrong days.



Today we present to you a brief survey on critiquing. Answer as many or as few questions as you like.


1. How open are you to critique?
I’m open to critique, as long as it’s presented in a useful manner. “I hate it” does not constitute useful

2. Would you prefer to receive constructive feedback on your work, or solely praise?
Firstly, I like to receive any comment on my work, because it means somebody read it. It can be very disheartening when you post something then don’t get any comments. That said, I like praise, but I know I can always improve, so constructive criticism is always very welcome.  A comment that contained both is always most welcome, and while I won’t always implement suggestion, I always consider them.

3. How do you handle it when someone has a negative reaction to your character, roleplay, or story?
When you’ve put a lot of work into a piece it can hurt when somebody doesn’t like it, but at the same time that work that’s been put in is a backbone for me. it means I’ve decided this character is ding this thing you don’t like, but I know the background and the story, so I understand why even if it may not make sense to you or be apparent at that time

To take a very minor example I wrote a doctor who one shot a few months ago and people were divided on the last line. Some said they though it took a lot away from the story, others liked it. Had it been the vast majority against it I may have considered adapting it, but at the end of the day I had a reason for doing it. I will one day get around to writing a sequel that will hopefully explain my point of view, but for now I haven’t figured out how to play it.


4. How often do you offer critique to others? Do you feel comfortable doing so?
I admit I feel awkward giving critique on somebody’s work, but it’s something I’m working on. I do always at the very least try to remember to leave a comment even if it’s just a short “I liked it”,  or a reference to a character situation in it.

I’m more likely to leave constructive criticism if it’s an author I read regularly or if they state in their notes they are happy to receive it.  I’ve considered doing some form of role play group actually to hep me get comfortable with replying to people and such, but I haven’t made it beyond the idea yet.

I think my other issue with leave constructive criticism is that sometime’s I’ll know I wasn’t particularly affected by this bit or felt this was awkward, but I can’t figure out why, so I figure my comment wouldn’t be helpful, and more likely read as hurtful (even though I’d never intentionally leave a hurtful comment)

5. What do you feel constitutes constructive critique?
I think it has to say not just that you didn’t like this or you felt that was wrong, but why and maybe a way you felt it could have been better. After all, I don’t think there’s a writer in the world that wouldn’t want to improve, even the most famous authors are still learning and adapting throughout their career, so offering a way to improve can only be a good thing.

Sweetening it with a remark on something you particularly liked is also a good strategy.

 

So overall, leave me a comment on fic and I’ll love you whether it’s praise or constructive criticism!

captain91: (Default)

Long time no see, hi all!

So, I got back from hell respite some time ago, but I’ve been flagging a bit on the whole doing stuff thing. I got out of the swing of things. I think I’m more in tune again, and hopefully you’ll see me more soon.

One of the tings I recently did was to join [livejournal.com profile] charloft . I’ve had a rough couple of weeks so not much has been posted yet by me, but I like a lot of the prompts that I see so I think I’ll be doing more of them as time goes on. For those of you that don’t know they put up a prompt of some sort every day. The Monday one is for the author to answer, the rest of the week you answer as one of your characters.

I figured I’d post my prompts here as a cross reference and so this place has a bit less tumbleweed floating around! So, onto my introduction post:


 

Monday Third of Janurary 2011 Writing Goals )

 

 

 

And to everyone out there who still remembers me, yes, I am alive! Drop me a line and let me know how life’s been treating you, new storiues you’ve been writing etc

 

Take care
