On the right side is the cover image for the new millenium edition of So You Want To Be A Wizard of a young boy and girl weilding wands as they're chased through a cityscape by wolf-like creatures, the girl holds a book in her arms as she runs

This Saturday Nov 14th (tomorrow) is the All Year Sprints Night of Writing Dangerously from 7-11pm EST.

We'll be doing a book/library-themed adventure-ish game. Teams will be Libriomancers vs Wizards.

Libriomancers (usernames A-M, colors red/purple/pink).
Wizards (usernames N-Z, colors green/teal/blue).

There will be a sign-up sheet.
(And yes if you want to choose a team make sure your username that night starts with the letter that matches the team and possibly match up your name color).

There will be participation banners for both showing up and for words!

Intergalactic Urban Search and Rescue (IGUSAR) is a slipstream sci-fi/science fantasy universe following two parallel universe teams of space rescue workers through their interactions within their teams and in their wider universes and in some cases when the universes mesh. There are also varied service creatures, aliens and fantasy beings who appear regularly.

This universe was spawned from two of [personal profile] ysabetwordsmith's prompts in my companion animal fishbowl in September 2013, the concept and development posts that lead to The Blueshift Troupers, and a large helping of lonely prompts gathered up from current & previous Crowdfunding Creative Jams.

This collection contains backstory, the main timelines and may eventually contain non-canon crossovers potentially with: Schrodinger's Heroes, Heliodrax, Agent Dreamwriter, Willerverse, Nine for the Nebula's Heart and others.

Hallows is Dani's ship and their universe leans more science fantasy. Heartbeat is Addison's ship and their universe leans more sci fi.

Current Word Count: 2207

NaNo Prep

So, I'm doing prep work for NaNoWriMo already (by which I mean digging through all the lonely prompts from the Crowdfunding Creative Jams and making copies of the base info for a couple potential crossovers -- definitely Schrodinger's Heroes is getting a crossover, and maybe Heliodrax, but not sure what else yet).

And I copied most of the resources from LJ to the All Year Sprints forums finally (at least the most asked for things).

I'm going to be using the universe I'm tentatively calling IGUSAR (Intergalactic Urban Search and Rescue) and will probably be releasing core-canon as Open Source and crossover fics as freebies.

I kind of envision it as a tv series that genrebends (generally from a science fantasy to science fiction range) and has lots of cast diversity, since I took some of the things tossed around from the development posts that spawned [personal profile] ysabetwordsmith's The Blueshift Troopers and two of [personal profile] ysabetwordsmith's prompts from my Sept 2013 Fishbowl: "A mixed rescue team of humans and aliens trying to clear a collapsed building with a jumble of different search-and-rescue animals." AND "An artificial intelligence secretly adopting abandoned 'virtual pets'."

Generally what genre you are in will depend entirely on which SAR team you're following (one is more scifi/tech-heavy, while the other is more science fantasy).

I am taking requests for (a) anyone who wants to cameo a character or (b) anyone who wants to have me to fusion one of their universes (or some combination of the two).

Today's NaNoBoston Meet & Greet was awesome. End of story.

There were ~95 of 100 guests, and afterward Travis further enhanced his retelling of the NaNoBoston Ghost Story -- The Sad Story of Merlene, the One-Heeled Drag Queen of Waxacatchie County, and I love the new embellishments that occur every year. (Though with all the newbies and some very exhausted oldbies, taking cues wasn't as quick as it used to be -- I'll admit even I was slow this time around lol).

I am FINALLY running with the eons old running gag [personal profile] jaydeis and I had way back in 2006 where we both teased the first time MLs Travis and Anna (who are still the MLs now) that shouldn't NaNoBoston's mascot be The Count instead of Elmo ("I mean, we're counting words aren't we?")

I worked on putting my setting notes into Windows Scrivener and submitted my writing prompt (as per usual I just used a random word generator one of the writing comms I'm in on LJ uses) and announced the slight modification of the six-word story I invented a couple weeks ago -- "When Apollo suffers, his friends help." Which is quite honestly the summary of both stories I'm rebelling this year. (And as I do every year, I gave away my instant coffee pack to the first wrimo to wave their hands at me after the group picture lol).

Tomorrow everything's closed thanks to Sandy, so I have plans to get up at my usual ridiculously early hour anyways and finish all my pre-NaNo assignments (namely HOL stuff) in addition to finishing up my NaNo binder. Might also help a friend with her website and maybe finally re-organize my LJ stuff. IDK. Figure it out as the day goes on and whether or not the power actually sticks around here. It tends to be variable.

Not sure what Tues is going to look like. I'm hoping things don't get cancelled too 'cause there's a lot of important stuff going on.
