Am I Busy, or Useless? 15/04/2011

Filed under: Lonely Hotel,Rants — Ralobat @ 2:50 am

First of all, I would just like to say that I would be the first one to admit I spend too much time on the internet. Far too much. And if I’m not on the internet then I’m watching TV, even today when I went to the gym I was watching TV! Not so much on the rowing machine, I can’t get the sound on it and the rowing movement hardly makes it easy to keep a steady eye on the screen, although I did manage quite well! πŸ˜‰

The reason for this confession, is that I have recently wondered how I manage to spend so much time hooked to the wi-fi like a fish. I go on Lonely Hotel – something I shall talk about more later – but although I always seem to have it open I don’t do huge amounts of writing, although it is substantial. I also have pidgin open from the minute my laptop warms up, (I replaced MSN as soon as I found out about Pidgin, and I’m glad I did!) where I talk to my interweb buddies and the occasional friend who decides to pop on for a bit. I go on most days as well, but only for five minutes or so, and any other sites that my friends have tried to get me into just haven’t held my interest, although FanFiction was their greatest gift to me, which brings me onto the BMT forums. I do go on these yes; sporadically. I might go on for an hour, I might go on for a few minutes, it’s very interchangeable. I also do my writing, maybe once a week for half an hour or so? Now that is my problem. I go on for hours each day, and all I seem to be doing is chatting and a bit of RP on Lonely Hotel. If I get extra time, I might write a bit, or do a bit of homework. I think the busy and useless merge until I can no-longer detirmine the excuses from the self-inflicted insults.

I have finally finished, so here is the link! I hope you like it, I think Tayend makes an excellent Rapunzel πŸ˜€

And here is the link to another hilarious fic while I’m at it!


Repetition is driving me mad! 09/04/2011

Filed under: Fanfiction,Rants,Writing — Ralobat @ 10:48 am

Well, my Tangled fic should be posted later today, so I’ll post the link to that when it’s up, but that’s not what I wanted to rant about today.

My brother, little brother, has bought a new game. Admittedly this is not the root of the problem, he buys a new game every week or so, and is always completely obsessive for about a week before getting bored and starting the cycle again. So, no, that is not the problem, (although it does get rather irritating seeing the same thing in different stage and nothing else for those few days) it is his choice of games. I could never criticise him on playing too much, as that would be hypocritical given my history on Runescape, Endless Ocean and my various TV obsessions, Top gear, QI and the like, but at least I wasn’t the only one playing them! This time, my brother has gone and bought “Dragonball Z Budokai 3” for the Playstation 2. I am completely sick of it after a mere day, all he does is control various bizarre characters (Like a thing I have dubbed “Small muscley dude with dots on his head”) and fight people. Yawn! His moves rarely vary and neither to the characters, not to mention the poor graphics and frankly childish dialogue. An example of this cropped up about 30 seconds ago, when a bad guy (Called cell because he was made of the good guys cells. I think I’m slipping into a coma here) told the then being controlled character his plans as soon as he was asked. I mean really? I think I’ll make the most of this beautiful weather, go outside and forget all about this idiotic and ridiculous game.


Lonely Hotel 05/04/2011

Not been able to do much writing today, but I might do a bit more on the Tangled re-write after I get a hot-chocolate and got to bed, mainly because of this new blog I’ve been posting on. It’s called lonely hotel, and we are different characters who wake up in a hotel with no knowledge of how they got there. It’s getting really interesting, we already have a cat and a broken down door and it’s only the first day! πŸ˜›

Come join us, at The Lonely Hotel!


Writing, ever writing 04/04/2011

Filed under: Fanfiction,Nura story,Writing — Ralobat @ 5:47 pm

I do many different types of writing, both of my own and Fanfiction. With the FanFiction I often do one-shots, and have a longer story on the go that gets updated less often then I’d like, as well as at least one in the pipeline. I also do challenges, set by the amazing people at the BMT forums, and I am doing a story re-write challenge at the moment about Tangled. I have about 1300 words according to MW, although I don’t know how accurate it is! πŸ˜›

I also have an own story planned, which centres on a young girl of about 16 who lives in a land, not dissimilar to our own, but with no technology and some very interesting traditions involving a clan of winged humans, called the Nura.

I hope too keep you updated with all the goings on of my writing, and any other stuff I find interesting, till then, au revoir!
