Messing Around with Vocaloid Models

No idea why this even interests me since I have never used Vocaloid, but I have come across the spin off “games” Miku Miku Dance (MMD) and Miku Miku Moving (MMM) where you can either use their premade models, modify their models (which they have given permission to do so), or create your very own models and use them to create videos with them. (I honestly thought these were games when I first heard about them, I swear, but Vocaloid is a series of digital music voice program products.)

LiveJournal User Agreement Changes

I have an old online journal over there and this morning I logged into it to find out the User Agreement has been changed. One of the things that’s been added is the stipulation that they can delete the account if you haven’t logged in for 6 months.

Well, I guess I’ve put off transferring all the posts that are over there to here long enough. The site’s API is unstable so I don’t have the option of importing everything directly. So I’m going to do it one entry at a time and back date, tag, and categorized everything.

This is going to take a while.

I Don’t Hate My Parents

Sorry I haven’t been posting much lately. Not sure why that is – maybe since I’ve been putting a lot of energy into the fiction and critiques over at Scribophile? I would like to think that, but I fear it’s been the depression. I feel like I look at WordPress and as of late all I have is nothing but the same rants. If it’s getting old for me to write it, it must be getting old for you to read it. Continue reading

Nusquamton is being Rebooted

Something unexpected and interesting has come to my attention over on Scribophile. As you know my novel and the responses to it for the most part are frustrating to me. It means I’m not doing something right. Thomas isn’t resonating with anyone. And for someone like me who is emotionally driven and prefers to write emotionally driven stories, this is bad – real bad. I feel like I need to pull it off the shelves of Scrib and seriously look at what the hell I’m doing with this and perhaps reboot the entire damn thing instead of repeatedly polishing the first chapter that isn’t doing what I need and want it to do. It’s becoming a beast that isn’t my own. Continue reading

Self Assessment of the Revision Process

Sorry I haven’t posted in the last few days. I swear I’m not dead. I’m still fighting off the head and chest cold. Doing a lot of reading and thinking. Not much rewriting or changing of the draft at this point, but a great deal of thinking. I did at least get Scholar Owl’s meds finally the other night so he’s back on track with that. So now I just need to crack the whip on myself with this and get the ball rolling here.

Reflection on Revision Progress

Finally the NaNoWriMo site has started to put stuff up for their Now What Months for the revision process. Took them long enough. Still isn’t much to look at. I guess my biggest complaint is that it’s lacking the drive and energy it has during the NaNoWriMo event. It’s like an event that doesn’t exist – I mean it does but it doesn’t. It’s here but it isn’t. If you have an account on the site, click the link to see what I mean. Continue reading
