The most ironic thing about the shutdown? I was one chapter shy of finishing my repost of my epic Kulagi's Kanoka. Now, after a second data loss, I have to repost it AGAIN. I'm not angry or anything (nobody was reviewing it anyway) but I find the irony amusing.
So I'm going to try and repost it. (And get my post count up some more... gee, I lost all of like 30 posts! That's a lot for me!) No, seriously, I'm reposting it!
Maybe try to do it faster than last time. Maybe not. I've also considered posting it elsewhere online. I mean, I've come across other fan fiction sites before. But I'm hesitant to do so because it probably wouldn't get me any new reviewers, and because I'm too fond of the BZP library, even in its excess of inactivity. I might do it at some point, but I'll focus on BZP first. At the very least, I have a good copy saved on my laptop AND external harddrive.
(Additionally, I found that somebody also copied my epic Time Disruption onto some Bionicle fan fiction wiki, so even tho it was without my permission, it still means that it's out there on the internet. Doesn't bother me, except that maybe they should've copied a few of my other stories too.
And even tho the lack of reviews kinda depressed me, I did start a mini sequel to Kulagi's Kanoka, set during the Dark Hunter wars. I'd love to post it here eventually and get people's take on it... but I kinda already know that nobody would read and review it. I had a hard enough time getting reviews when BZP was in its golden age... can't expect much now when the library is almost a graveyard.
And finally, I'm thinking about doing NaNo this year again. I'm kinda harsh on the whole National November Writing Month thing, because I view myself as better than them cause I can write whenever I want to, and I work on quality over quantity, (And even then I can produce some quantity... even tho quality is only determined by me.) But between having a few stories I need to rewrite and still technically being unemployed, I have the time to do it, so I should challenge myself. Although it will be different than the first time I really participated. Then, I used existing characters from one of my original story themes and wrote a new story. This time, I'm planning to rewrite a story that I lost years ago. This means that I know all the basic plot twists and how it ends and everything waaaaay in advance, so I just need to push myself to type it up and flesh it out. The issue is that I'm pretty sure the original one I wrote years ago was more like 30,000 - 40,000 words, so I dunno if it'll hit the 50,000 word mark before I finish it. But if that happens, so what, I'll have one of my stories completed! (The NaNo I did three years ago was 51,000 after one month, but incomplete. I finally wrote the finale this summer, and it finished at about 72,000.)
But don't worry, I don't plan on posting it here and asking you to review it.
Heck, the 582 word blog entry is already pushing it for your expected attention span. Oh well.
Maybe tomorrow I'll write a blog updating some MOC things I've been working on.
