Done At Last!

Done At Last!

All the edits for The White Winds are complete! The whole thing is posted here and at AO3! I have not been updating it at ff.net as I should have but that will have to wait for another day. Month. Year, even. I’ll admit I haven’t been writing every day as I intended to. However, I have been writing. I’ve also been pondering and asking advice, particularly in regards to Resolutions Redux and Brainstorm. I have finally decided that Brainstorm…

Tweaks and tails

Tweaks and tails

Had to take a couple of hours to tweak all the links involved in The White Winds so navigation from chapter to chapter works right. It’s hard because the chapters are automatically numbered at both fanfiction.net and AO3 but I haven’t been doing that here. I probably should, simply to make it clearer. I plan on updating chapters here on Mondays and Thursdays, just to be consistent. Readers at AO3 like it and though they could read the whole thing…

I have lots of Kudos!

I have lots of Kudos!

With the premiere of The Incredibles 2, I’ve noticed a lot of notifications from An Archive of Our Own for my short story, “The Visit”. That particular archive allows guests or signed-in members to leave “kudos” on any story. This is the first time a short story of mine at AO3 has generated such interest and I’m chuffed about it! From the comments, it seems I’ve been able to satisfactorily wrap up a plot thread from the first movie: what…

Finally, chapter four!

Finally, chapter four!

In an effort to return to regular writing, I finally reread and tweaked the fourth chapter of Not All Dead and posted it at Archive of Our Own, Fanfiction.net, and here. It means the story is complete at last. I found it a real struggle to finish as I wasn’t sure I’d gone the right way with the chapter but after rereading it, I was actually pleased with what I’d come up with. So, with a touch or two of…

A bit of site housekeeping news.

A bit of site housekeeping news.

After a bit of finagling, I’ve managed to make my domain name, tikatu.com, redirect here without, well, the redirect. So, no more starting out on my old homepage; this WordPress build is now the official homepage for my domain. If you have my site bookmarked, you might want to update that. Still working on my fanfic when I have the time and energy. I’m on Chapter 3, still, and need a bit more dialogue before I move on to Chapter…

One step back

One step back

Well, not me taking one step back but fanfiction.net. They added new formatting tools to the user profiles and forum posting windows–including a “source code” button, but removed that one function from the actual document manager. (On the doc manager it was labeled “HTML”.) Do they really think we’re going to want the HTML versions of our forum posts? What were we going to do, post them at live journal? At WordPress? Facebook? Twitter? I can see the possibilities for…

Yes, I am a winner! Is the story finished? Do I ever finish a story during NaNo? Nope. Never. Not this time either. However, should I finish writing, editing, revising, and betareading this one, it’ll show up here at Tikatu’s Corner first. It’s a Thunderbirds fanfic entitled: Guardian Angels, Inc.

I really wish I knew CSS!

I really wish I knew CSS!

Or actually thought before I acted. First, my primary menu disappeared again. I have no idea why; I’m working in a child theme and all but just like the last time, it went poof! I’ve had to rebuild the verdammt thing all over again! Maybe styling it would help? Might have to try that. Then I stupidly did a bulk action of delete spam to some comments that a non-functioning Askimet dumped in with the real comments. So now I…

Beginning to get the hang of this theme thing

Beginning to get the hang of this theme thing

I’ve been quiet over the past months as I’ve worked on this site on and off. My goal is to shape this into my writer’s platform, using it to eventually promote my fantasy fiction–eventually being the operative word here. I’m going¬†to replace my personal fanfiction site with this one, too. The original has served me well; unfortunately, my coding skills are not the best and it’s beginning to break down on the actual story pages. The one-shots and smaller chapter…

On track

On track

Probably should have posted this yesterday, but … oh well, I’ll edit and put it up today! First, I’m right on track for word count. Hallelujah!¬†Wednesday, I felt generally run down, ill, and grumpy, to the extent that we ordered comfort food (pizza) instead of what I’d planned for dinner (hot dogs) and I didn’t write a word. I was a full day ahead on word count at that point, so taking the day off didn’t hurt a bit. I’ve…
