You two do realise that 2k pages is something like 50k posts, right? You're all expected to write at least 100k on your novels in 2012 between JulNo & NaNo, too. :P

I want it to be Jan. 1st so I can start the rewrite. Going to get as much as possible done on day one - hence why I'm prepping now.

Of course! But I think we can do it because in 2011 Mars and I only joined the thread during the latter half of the year. Or was Mars earlier? Can't remember. But surely it's doable? xD

I want my old seat at the table back. But another laptop is occupying it. :|

Mars was here for three quarters of the year.

I want to get more writing done next year so less procrastination. ;o


Reading the start of Ch. 4 and I can't even remember writing it. It doesn't even sound like something I'd write, gah. It's Leslie's nightmare. Not sure whether to keep or scrap it atm.

But characters demand attention. ><

It's not my usual subject choice so I'm not even sure how to rank it. For one, it's not even set in the real world. xP

Guess I'll just have to study write more to occupy myself in your absence. x)

That's perfectly legal since it's a nightmare? Dreams can be a lot of fun to write and read.

Man, I feel so lazy! Not that I really care, though, 'cause I'm on break and that's what breaks are for. *nod*

2k posts by 2013? I think we can do it. I'm not sure if I'll be able to help very much, though. I don't always have internet. :(

Do any of y'all know what WriMo's you plan on doing this year? I'm thinking about trying to plan out my year writing-wise.

Planning to delete it along with all except a little bit of Ch 4, simply because I love this [unedited and badly written] conversation between Les and Cain:

    A hand on his shoulder startles him. His feet kick at the ground as he scrambles to get away from this unwanted contact. But then he hears familiar snickering and he calms down in an instant.

    You could have said something, Leslie snaps.

    He runs his hand through his hair as he watches the laughing blond take a seat on the railing.

    Like what? Cain asks, kicking his legs back and forth.

    Leslie shrugs. I dont know. Something like, Hello, maybe?

    Youre no fun, Lesbian.

    Feeling defeated, Leslie reclaims his seat on the fence. This time hes too anxious to shut his eyes, paranoid that Cain could somehow read his thoughts. So he keeps his mind blank, instead staring straight ahead at a little boy who is stood holding a shopping basket for a mother. Theres a blue ribbon tied around his wrist, which leads up to an azure balloon that is flapping in this cool wind.

    You know what would be funny? Cain says, lowering his voice. If you ran over there and cut the string on that kids balloon.

    Leslie raises an eyebrow. How would that be funny?

    It just would be, Cain says. Why dont you go ahead and do it?

    I dont have anything to cut the ribbon with.

    Cain leans to the left and plucks a pair of scissors out of his back pocket. He snips at the air with them two or three times before holding them out to Leslie.

    Tentatively he reaches out to them, grasping them firmly by the handle. He looks the pair over suspiciously, and then looks up to meet the blond lads eye.

    Do you always carry sharp objects in your trouser pockets?

    Only when I feel like cutting someone up, Cain remarks casually, as if its the most natural thing in the world. So tell me: will it be your face or that boys feelings? Decide quickly, Lesbian.

    Leslies hand squeezes tight around the handle. He cant hide the way his eyes widen at the mere thought of doing anything unkind. He sucks in a deep breath and holds it, still staring at the other.

    After a few more moments Cain cracks up. He holds out his hand with the palm facing upwards.

    He says, Im kidding.

    The younger teen just blinks in response. He looks down at the scissors, and then across to the oblivious little boy who is now walking hand in hand with his mother towards the shop entrance.

    Dont you understand the concept of a joke? Cain asks. Then when he receives no response he adds, Here, give those back to me before you hurt yourself.

Brooke: Some planning is always good. I want to participate in JulNo and NaNo, but I don't have any other plans (which makes 2012 about half as productive as 2011 was, but we'll see).

Tina: Oh wow. Don't know what to say since it really sounds like Cain is serious. It's different from BL. But it makes me curious about the rest... :rolleyes:

Brooke - My plans don't go very far. JulNo and NaNo are a definite, of course.

Mel - Cain is my favourite character I've created. Ever. He's not even the character Leslie ends up with, though. He's the love interest's best friend. x)

Brooke, darling- HELLO!

Are y'all discussing rewrites? I started editing my NaNo'11 yesterday and I'm already on page 32/87- WOOHOO!

'course, I'm really only editing- typos and rephrasing and such, but same difference, right? I'm hoping to get my five free copies (OMG FIVE THIS YEAR!!!!) by the end of Febuary because me and my school friend want to give a talk at school about it before the year is up and want something to show for our success XD. I still need to make a cover though- which I might be coming back to you all to get opinions on. I have three possible layouts so far, so I'll let you know when I have thumbs ready.

On the topic of favorite characters writen- my JulNo'10 still holds first place in all catagories. I love ALL the characters in that book and I love the plot and the everything and ya.... XD I should really get a printed copy of that one, huh....?

Haha I love Cain. XD He has the same sense of humor as me...but way meaner/dirtier.

Hey, Julia! 2k pages by 2013? LETS DO IT. XD

Passed the permit test and the lady grading them is way nicer than anyone else in that building.

Now I'm gonna write and go to Barnes and Noble at some point. :D

EDIT: Also, I need to rewrite but I have no time to do so. And as soon as school starts again next week I'll have to actually study.

Ah, crud. The character I wanted to remove from the story is way more important than I remembered. Damn. Better keep him around then - it's only because of this character (Zachery) and Leslie's mother, Anna, arguing that Leslie becomes suspicious of Cain in the first place. He'sADrugDealer.

It was going fine until I realised that literally every other chapter Zac does something important. He's kind of the person that stops Leslie from doing anything stupid and looks out from him - when he leaves, that's when Nick & Cain takeover. -.- Luckily he's not in for long, I guess.

But I'm still cutting out most of Ch. 4. I'll just make the bit about the little kid & his balloon occur at a play park instead (Leslie was only sat on the fence because he was waiting for Zac to pay for food). x)

Tina, I want to read more! Do I get to read when the rewrite's finished? Or maybe parts of the first version? If you don't like it, just stop sharing snippets!

Gah, everyone went to bed. So I go upstairs and find my grandma watching a series in the living room (where I sleep). Gotta wait until she's done. :|

To be honest I didn't think anyone would like this story. xD (except Indy liking Cain, of course. xP) But, yeah, if you're interested then of course you can read the rewrite. I'm aiming to get a lot done on it in January.


I'm actually working on the outline atm:

    What are you doing here? Leslie asks Cain. Cain snaps a photograph of the two of them on his phone. He ignores the question and asks, Is this your bird? Man, maybe Ill have to stop calling you Lesbian. Daisy giggles and Cain continues: The church is making me undergo some whack counselling sessions with the school nurse. Why is that? I trashed the organ. Once again: why? I was told to clean it for nicking a few green from the donation bowl. And why did you do that? I just felt like it.

Aw, cute. I'm going to have to write something really vulgar now to scare you off. :P


This is from Ch. 33 so it is the outline. The bit I was working on earlier wasn't. xP Although I think it's now technically Ch. 29 because I scrapped the Beth sub-plot (a girl Leslie liked in the original but won't in this).

Yay! I'll need you from Jan. 2nd onwards, please! x)
