Ah, the summer holidays have come. No work, no education, just quality time at home doing nothing. Except I hate doing nothing.

My NaNo entry was finished the day before the competition closed, and I reached 60,000 words, not bad if I do say so. It turned into Life on Mars, Lost in Austen or anything else of that sort. Ethel was there too. He turned out to be the key the characters needed to escape Caroline Bingley.

I've just gone through all my Doctor Who caps for The Christmas Invasion, The Runaway Bride, Voyage of the Damned, The Next Doctor and The End of Time. Can anybody guess why? They're all Christmas specials, I hear you say, well, that's correct. Last year I didn't do any icons whatsoever for Christmas, and I felt left out, so that's what I'm going to spend a lot of time doing.

Also, I'm thinking about starting a blog. My ramblings about anything in the Whoniverse. I'd say reviews, but I'm terrible at writing them, so I'll stick with 'ramblings'. The point? To bring some much needed love to Colin, Sylv, Bonnie and Sophie, who are often overlooked in favour of David, Billie, Tom and Lis. Yeah, I do need to get out more.

But anyway, just thought I'd update anybody interested...

Nano 2010

So, I've had to rewrite a bit of my Nano entry. Why? It began resembling Children of Earth a bit too much. Damn you RTD, stealing my ideas before I've had them :P.

In all honesty, I probably shouldn't have been listening to it in the background whilst writing, so it's my own fault. My outcome would have been different, though. Ethel would have been behind everything.

Back to the drawing board word processor, I suppose.

So, I've reached the minimum needed word count to get this thing done in 30 days. I'm gonna keep writing now. I've added another two characters. Sean now has a twin called Will, who is a Doctor Who tragic. Gwen and Thomas are also big fans of Doctor Who. Chelle is Gwen's best friend, and an aspiring actress, wanting to follow in the footsteps of her mother, although she doesn't know that her mother is a drug-addicted alcoholic similar to Karen in Will & Grace.

And I found my Ethel! Ethel's a male guinea-pig, but with this pic, you can see why he's gender confused...

The month of November is upon us. Do you all know what that means? It doesn't involve facial hair, I can tell you that month. In November, I, along with many others, take part in National Novel Writing Month. A few hours in and I'm going well. I can't tell you the plot, because I'm writing blind, but I can say that one of my characters has a pet called Ethel. Ethel the Gender Confused Guinea-Pig. And my opening scene reminds me of the times Lynda and Spike went undercover in Press Gang. My MFC is a journalist called Gwenyth, has a boyfriend called Sean and a brother called Thomas. Yeah, that's all I got.

So, yesterday I made a graphic to celebrate my second year doing NaNo, and here it is...

Yeah, so I might keep you updated with my process, if I remember.

Also, I've got a new harddrive and have begun to screencap again. Icons coming soon.

My hard drive died just over a week ago. It wiped all my screencaps, videos and PSDs. It also wiped at least two hundred unposted icons ranging from Sense & Sensibility to Series Fnarg of Doctor Who. That's what depressed me most, as my last batch was my all time favourite. Oh, it also wiped the first four chapters of my Sarah Jane/Press Gang fic.

And what did I learn from this? ALWAYS back up your hard drive.
