26- How often do you write it and in what environment?
I don't write as often as I should. When I wrote the first Sleeper, I did it quite regularly, since I had to meet a deadline. It took me about three months to finish, including editing. When that was finished it kinda got shelved, until someone at chaos_thon suggested, three months later, that we should work on 'second episodes'. That kind of got the ball rolling on Sleeper again, and even though the whole second episode thing didn't take off, I ended up finishing Trail too, and started working on Rebel right after. 
There was a bit of a break between Rebel and me starting the fourth one (which by the way, it looks like it won't be called Impulse or Reckless after all). Now that I'm near the end of it, I'm spending a little less time on it. I think I work on it two, three times a week, depending on my days off and how much other stuff I need to do. I use yarny.me to write and keep track of my notes, (side note: I recommend it, it's free and very useful!) which means that I can sit at any computer and write. Of course, that usually means my laptop, on the living room table (sometimes my bed) usually early in the morning or late at night. (I find I'm much more productive at night...)
I have the first three books loaded up on my kindle, and that's how I've been revising them-on the way to and from work, as well as during breaks... So I guess I'm ''working'' on the series as a whole very often. 

Your question:

What is your writing environment?

Hey guys! Quick post :D

Showcase's Lost Girl premieres tomorrow on Syfy and we think you should all check it out! 

This hot new fantasy-noir series follows the life of Bo, a PI who also happens to be a succubus. 
After her first sexual encounter turns out to be anything but normal, Bo discovers she is one of the Fae – legendary creatures that pass as humans while secretly feeding off them.
Seeking to understand her powers and her past, Bo teams up with a wily female con artist named Kenzi to form a detective agency that allows her to help those in need while searching for the truth about who she is.
As she begins to understand her relationship with the Fae and the fragile truce between its two warring clans, Bo fights to maintain her neutrality as she heads on a collision course with her dark and disturbing past – and uncertain future.

Starring Anna Silk as sexy succubus Bo, Ksenia Solo as perky sidekick Kensi, and Kris Holden-Reid as light fae hunk Dyson. 

Check out this quick sneak peek and promo, and don't forget to tune in tomorrow if you can!

I intend to announce my official return to LJ, eventually. For now, some art work :D

*Cursed

Haven! Nathan! Audrey! KISSING! The basis for this is pretty simply, Nathan is cursed, Audrey is the only one that can help him. And you know. KISSING.



*Ostracized from society


This one is for Pretty Little Liars. The Toby/Spencer relationship fits this one perfectly, so I couldn't pass it up :) I used both a quote from the show and one from the song 'Try' by Zack Berkman. Check it out, it's pretty cool.

Firsties, an updated version of my bingo card, for ease of access to previous entries (Just click prompt!), as well as a visual aid to making me feel accomplished  :) 

My hc_bingo cardCollapse )
And today we have two video entries! Joy.  

For my wild card entry, I picked 'sensory deprivation', for which I made a mini vid for Mr. Sensory Deprivation himself, Nathan (Haven). Yes, I know, how very lazy of me.  Still, I love this song ["My Skin" by Natalie Merchant] and it seemed perfect for this guy :) Holy mother of Pete, youtube takes FOR-EVER to upload :S I'm gonna grab a tea... 

Title: Untouchable
Character(s): Nathan, audrey
Episode(s): Spoilers for the big twist at the end of 1.08, as well as epies after that, specifically 1.10 & 1.13.
Music: 'My Skin' by Natalie Merchant



The second entry is even lazier, believe it or not. For 'making deals with demons', I made a mini vid of, yes, Supernatural. More specifically, Bela and her death by hellhounds. (Funny coincidence, "I'm In Here", the song I used for this vid, just started playing on my iTunes...)  So this one kinda deviates from standard h/c in that there's a lot of the 'h' but pretty much none of the 'c'. 

Title: Tick, Tick, Tick...
Character(s): Bela, Dean
Episode(s): 3.15
Music: 'I'm In Here' by Sia



I shall now go back to writing 'Horror Through the Ages'. :D

BREAKING NEWS:  I spelled unconsciousness right the first frickin time in my life! I did fail the second time... You'd think for someone who studied Psychology for 4 years, I'd have learn already, right? I'm just going to accept it as the one thing I'll never be able to do...  Also, I keep spelling bingo as bongo? Meh, moving on...

Previously, on Pennythepants' journal... 

She went on and on about about the new installment of 
 , some crappy drawings and! The hurt/comfort bingo challenge she just signed up for.  To check out this bingo card, click HERE! (Yah might have to scroll down a bit there, kid.) 

And now for the main event, my first bingo entry! A Haven fic, featuring Audrey and Duke. (FYI, Duke is cool, love Eric Balfour, but I'm 100% Team Nathan!) Wether it actually falls under h/c, is anyones guess. I'm a bit clueless...

One last thing... FF.net is really starting to grate on my nerves, what with all the re-formating and what not. Hmm, hello? Who wrote this story? Me not you, you stupid site. That means I get to format my story however I like... Quit messing around with it, damn it. Double space means double space, yeah?



Title: 'Carpe Diem' Does Not Mean 'Fish of the Day'
Character(s): Audrey, Duke
Episode(s): Just the Pilot :) 
Word Count: 980


Note to self: NEED Haven icon. 

Also... In case you were wondering about my mood... I need to pee.
