This week I've been art and craft shopping like crazy, searching for interesting materials with which to make promotional stuff for the arts festival. And I must say, my wanderings have been extremely fruitful! I've got multi-coloured card and paper, stencils and stickers, as well as some beautiful calligraphy pens in silver and gold ink that are perfect for writing and drawing on dark backgrounds. I'm gradually transforming my spare back room (that also serves as my cat's bedroom) into a studio. Not sure how Harry the cat feels about this!

I'll be showcasing three separate pieces, two of them printed on large postcards, and an A5 folded booklet for a slightly longer piece that was written for one of the writing group's prompts. See a sample here )

More indulgently, I've also discovered a little craft shop in a nearby town that sells Paperblanks notebooks. Do check out their website, if only for the pictures of their books. They're exquisite. I'd eventually like to get a notebook from their Fabulous Footwear collection (no major surprises there, eh?). Their magnetic wrap closures are a dream, as you don't get frayed or rumpled page edges and it keeps the paper clean. So far I've bought their Filigree Floral Ebony book and the smaller, extremely cute Swirling Peacock Ivory. ♥

I've also just started a new website design commission for a local picture framing business. It's always nice designing for people who are arty, as they generally know what they want in terms of style/texture/etc.

The writing front has been dominated by research lately, but that's ok—I have a gazillion notes, and it's enjoyable work. I'm almost ready to tackle the first draft of my steampunk story, which needs a rewrite and some TLC.

Funny I was just posting about micro-fiction, because yesterday one of my Twitter stories went live @onefortyfiction. It can be found on their website here: Grey Matter. I'd recommend it if you like a smidgen of humour with your zombies. :)

The last few days my attention has been mostly riveted on the UK riots coverage, which continues to unfold like a horrific movie. It's almost unbelievable, and makes me damn relieved I don't live in an inner city where most of the trouble is going down. I hope the city dwellers on my f-list are keeping safe and well out of the way. Possibly related, me and Jen Bell hopped over to a neighbouring writing group and poetry reading Tuesday night, and when we left there was a guy getting arrested on the street outside. It was noisy and there were a few more people scattered around watching and egging it on. We ended up power-walking back to the car, a little freaked out, and I thought: holy crap, that was just one guy! I can't imagine what it must be like on the streets with hundreds of them. Bloody terrifying.

It's also weird that I was recently talking about book covers, 'cause I got the cover art through from Karl A. Nordman for my dark fantasy novelette "Dust City". There was joyous flail! There was much squee! And my cat gave me some odd looks.

I still have a couple of stories from Darwin's Evolutions to catch up on, too. Links forthcoming.

And I thought, what with the recent LJ-apocalypse near miss, it was worth mentioning again that I have a mirror journal on Dreamwidth here. That's where I'll relocate should LJ ever implode for more than week or two.

So, good things? I got a shiny white iPhone 4 this morning to replace my old 1st gen phone which I accidentally dropped and cracked. The old one was on its dying legs anyway and the battery needed charging three times a day, so I don't feel too indulgent. But I do love my new baby. And to think, I used to hate mobile phones!

On Wednesday I'm heading to London to meet up with [livejournal.com profile] whymzycal. We're going to be all touristy and visit a museum, although I doubt I'll be concentrating on art when there is a Dabs nearby to glomp and natter with.

Bad things? I think my Twitter account was compromised this morning, as people started getting spammy private messages from it. But I did not send those messages (I would never send spam on any social networking site, ever) and if anyone else gets PMs from 'me' please let me know. I've done the security check, changed passwords and info, so I'm hoping that'll be the end of it. I also disabled all the third-party sites that were linked up to my Twitter, which means no more cross-posting. Doing it manually takes a little extra time, but for the added peace of mind I'm willing to do it. Yikes.

And now I'm going to catch up with LJ things! Hope you're all well and survived the LJ-apocalypse. :)
jenniferkoliver: (Foo Fighters | Learn to Fly)
On Saturday I went to see Foo Fighters at the Milton Keynes Bowl with [livejournal.com profile] davidrcooke and his bf Chris. I'm only just recovering now, hence the late write-up. It was epic, and I don't mean epic in the sense that something mildly cool is epic, I mean epic epic—they played for two and a half hours, and they had three support acts in the forms of Tame Impala, Death Cab For Cutie, and Biffy Clyro, plus two special (secret) guests in the forms of Roger Taylor (Queen) and Alice Cooper. Or as Dave Grohl put it, "Alice Fucking Cooper!"

EPIC, I tell ya.

It's safe to say it was the best live show I've ever been to, hands freaking down, helped by the fact that the Foos are my favourite band and I've been dying to see them again. Since November last year it's been like waiting for all my childhood Christmases rolled into one. Yes, I know, but they're special!

Anyway, this write-up got a bit long so I'll pop the rest under a cut. Click here if you want an enthusiastic run-down of everything, with pics and links to footage of the show, as well as official music videos. Oh, and squee. Lots and lots of squee )

Right now I have a stinking head cold that I'd originally been mistaking for hayfever, but it's got worse over the last few days and it seems there's no escaping it. :/ So, I'm going to be mostly MIA until I'm de-snuffled. I hope you're all doing well!
jenniferkoliver: (Vintage | Stressed is Desserts)
We had the first critique session at the writing group last Tuesday, in which most of us shared our short ghost stories. Mine went down quite well, and I may post it here—once it's been through a bit more editing. The main problem I had was keeping it reasonably short while building up atmosphere. And while I don't believe it's my absolute best work ever, I'm quite pleased with it.

The next writing prompt is "Knife and Fork", suggested by one of our group members and based off a quote about the author Victor Canning:

Canning regarded himself primarily as a storyteller. “Give me a knife and fork,” he once said, “and I will make a story out of them.”

I've got an idea for this already. A really, really silly idea. :)

It's been a busy couple of weeks. Strange at times, too. Most notably, a couple of weekends ago my cat found a nest of baby mice in the garden and insisted on dragging the poor little buggers out. I tried rescuing the two that I found, but one died almost immediately. The other made it a couple of days, but unfortunately it was just too young and tiny to live outside the nest. While it was alive I took a short video of it on my iPod, which you can watch here. Baaaaaaaby! It has been buried next to a marigold in the garden. It's amazing how much you miss a creature so little, after such little time together. RIP, baby mouse.

Another update and a flist catch-up coming soon!
jenniferkoliver: (Hot Fuzz | Law Won)
A while ago I mentioned taking on a local creative writing group, something I found both awesome and daunting. Luckily, I found a brilliant co-organiser in the form of Jennifer Bell, who has more experience at these things and has been a terrific help, not to mention a ton of fun getting to know.

Monday night was the first meeting—an initial gathering, mostly to sort out details about the group, arrange a solid meeting schedule, etc. There were a few fluttering nerves, but nothing too bad, and once we had our hand-outs ready, a selection of creative writing books scattered artfully around the tables, plates piled with sweets and biscuits, and the kettle on the boil, we were reasonably calm and ready to roll.

The group is lovely and we're varied nicely, too, with different age groups and walks of life and interests and creative processes. We're now gradually getting stuff set up, like a sparkly website and a little donation box for funding tea and coffee and other goodies. Me and Jennifer have met up a couple of times outside the group and we've already come up with a tentative programme that could span up to 15 months of discussion material. Not bad for a newbie group, eh? :)

Our topic of discussion last night was inspiration, in which we covered the different mediums and places we go to generate ideas and find motivation. Then we decided to pick a group prompt and write something for the next meeting, when we'll be reading and critiquing each other's work. One group member hit on the fascination with ghost stories and inadvertently sparked our first prompt, so that's what we'll be writing about—ghosts and all manner of spooky things! I may end up sharing my group stories here if I feel they're too short or not fully-formed enough to submit anywhere else. We'll see.

I'm so thrilled about the group, and hopefully it'll just get better and better. Whatever happens, this is already another positive step on the long and winding writing path!
jenniferkoliver: (Stock | Typewriter)
Welcome back, LJ, after another exciting episode of DDoS Attack! I quite liked their Twitter update from a couple of days ago: "Down again! We've been slammed with another DDoS attack. Think you know why? Tweet your conspiracy theories here!" It certainly sounds like someone isn't happy with them right now. There are theories going round that it's an attempt to get people to move to other social networking sites, which is kinda lame.

Anyway, there's been a bit of movement in my life recently, resulting in me inheriting a writing group. Well, technically I've inherited the idea of a writing group, as the one that used to be active in my home town has long been dormant. Now I'm attempting to revive it, with loads of help from my local arts club. This is superb on many levels, particularly because in the past when I've tried joining courses and groups they've all ended up cancelled for one reason or another. I figured there had to be local writers eager to network and talk plot, structure, and style, and there are! I've already had six people contact me about the group, and I'm jazzed about meeting them. *jazzes*

When we begin meetings, providing it all goes well, I may ask if the other members mind me writing the odd article based on what we discuss and post them here (or at my website, which I am building slowly but surely, and hope to be able to launch soon!).

What I wanted to ask was if any of you have led or participated in writing groups, and what tips you've picked up to create a happy environment for writers of different levels, ages, and walks of life. Are there any activities you would recommend to get the ball rolling? Any official stuff you suggest doing to keep things organised? I'm sure between us we can work something up, but it's always nice to have a few pointers from experienced group participants.
jenniferkoliver: (Deftones | Chino)
Because of the recent DDoS attacks on LJ, parts of the site aren't loading. I'm reading, but alas, I can't comment on all the things I want to comment on! Plus, a handful of my userpics have mysteriously vanished. I'm going to leave them alone for now and see if they come back when LJ finishes fixing the damage.

Fun times yesterday when I went for a routine check up at the dentist and ended up having a monster of a filling. It's bloody huge! Thankfully it's an upper-back molar and doesn't show. My face was numb for hours after and I couldn't smile, so now I finally know how all those Hollywood stars feel after botox. Not cool! I've got another appointment on April 20th for a second filling. Now I wish I hadn't mentioned that dentist horror story in my other post - I'm sure I jinxed myself.

On the up side, I finally got to order my shiny pink VAIO today. Yay!
jenniferkoliver: (James Hook)
The lovely Helen Ginger from Straight From Hel has given me the Stylish Blogger Award, which is fabulous and thoughtful and very kind of her! Looksie, there's even a stylish badge.

The rules are: make a list of 7 things about yourself, then pass the award on to 7 others.

1. I've got two tattoos. The first I got in 2000, and is of the Indian symbol for "Om" which you can see here. The second I got a year later and is a small black and red dragon on my stomach, but alas, I don't have a pic.

2. When I was thirteen, I wrote a short story about a murderous demon dentist. This says a great deal about my feelings toward going to the dentist at the time. Those feelings haven't changed much over the years.

3. I spent my 20th birthday riding an elephant through a jungle in southern India. Best, and bumpiest, birthday ever.

4. An ex-boyfriend had a star named after me when we were together. I have a chart and certificate of it and everything; it's something I just can't throw out. If you're wondering where the star can be found, it's: oh47m13s +19°34'43", in the Pisces constellation (apparently!).

5. My first job was as a kennel maid at a boarding kennel and cattery. I basically got paid to walk, feed, groom, and snuggle dogs all day during school holidays and at weekends. It remains one of the best jobs I've ever had.

6. When I was but a wee young thing, I would remove a small drain cover outside my house and dangle my feet down the well. My parents have photos of me doing this, and you can see one here ) This signalled a lifelong love affair with water. Sadly, I also lost a wind-up toy fish (originally intended for bathtimes) down the same drain, which wasn't so good.

7. Possibly my favourite book of all time is "The Talisman" by Stephen King and Peter Straub. To me, it is unadulterated epic dark fantasy, unhindered by pasted-on romance and silly narrative devices. For this reason, I can forgive its sometimes long-winded descriptive passages. Jack Sawyer and Richard Sloat are two of my favourite child characters, and their pure, bittersweet friendship moves me every time I read it. And lovely, loyal Wolf! Wolf! I was devastated by the sequel "Black House"—it was like reading a book from an entirely different fictionverse.

Because everyone on my f-list is stylish in their own way, the following list is randomly selected and does not in any way suggest those not on it are not stylish. I tag: [livejournal.com profile] babarnett, [livejournal.com profile] csecooney, [livejournal.com profile] erastes, [livejournal.com profile] hierath, [livejournal.com profile] inlumino, [livejournal.com profile] markwise, and [livejournal.com profile] xjenavivex. (No pressure, though, guys!)

Yesterday I hit 45,000 words on The Big WIP, which in my rough estimation is about halfway through the final word count. Half. Way. Through. A. Novel. To a few of you this'll sound like peanuts, but I'm really jazzed about my little half-a-novel! It's not only the longest piece I've written, I've also still got the momentum, excitement, and inspiration I had when I started. There's no breaking point or peak to this hill, and I'm not expecting to start rolling smoothly down to The End. Climbing, hiking, hauling myself up is doing wonders for my stamina and willpower—I can see The End, and I can't wait to get there, but the scenery is fab and I'm happy to take it all in. Always a good sign. ;)

The thought of how much editing I'll to have to do when the first draft is complete, however...

*


Finding a compatible hypnotherapist who is a) reasonably priced and b) relatively close to where I live is proving tricky. There are a few non-extortionate hypnotherapists in the general area, but factoring in petrol costs to get to them ratchets up the price. I've looked into self-hypnosis, but this is confronting a phobia rather than Life Issues (life is grand, overall, I must say, and I don't want to go fixing it if it ain't broken!) and frankly I'm too chicken to step up to The Phobia and challenge it to a deathmatch. This is going to require tag-team tactics. I want a referee in the ring.

One of the things I hate most about my phobia is how illogical it is. Heights, most of us can understand, as there's a real possibility of plummeting and doom. Going out in public, we may also understand, with all the social pressures and insecurities flying around. But mine? The most annoying part of it is, the majority of people I speak to find the object of my phobia "soooo cute!" *grumbles*

Have any of you ever confronted your own phobias without outside help? Or used writing as a form of facing up to your irrational fears and dealing with them? Have you discovered any other methods, aside from hypnosis and Phobia Deathmatches, to help overcome a problem like this?

A friend came to stay over last weekend, and I asked him to bring his nifty professional camera because I've been wanting to take some decent pics for my various social networking profiles, but for some reason I could never get a good one with my iPhone. Of course, once I got my paws on the expensive camera the project rapidly went from a Jen photoshoot to a Jen's cat photoshoot. But I did get some utterly gorgeous pics of my fluffy boy Harry, one of which I've uploaded for your viewing pleasure (if you're into cats or cute things) )

Thanks again to those on Facebook and LJ who sent me birthday wishes on Wednesday. I don't deal with birthdays very well, but the thoughts and messages were much appreciated and cheered me up to no end. ♥ So far, 31 is not too scary and not much different from 30, except that now I'm all pro-active with my stories. Progress, woohoo!

Since I mostly got monetary gifts this year, I've decided it's time to buy myself a shiny new laptop, and I've fallen in love with the Sony VAIO S Series. In pink, no less! I can't wait to hold its sleek, pretty little body in my hands. :)
jenniferkoliver: (Wolves | Girl with Wolf Hat)
Happy Valentine's Day, to those who celebrate it! And to those who think it's all a commercialised bullshit sentiment fest, uh, Happy Commercialised Bullshit Sentiment Fest Day! In honour of St. Valentine, I'm going to link to possibly the greatest love song ever written. You can hear it on YouTube. Ah! No matter how many times I listen, I still get that heart fluttery feeling.

Writing-wise, I'm a veritable word machine right now, and I've finished the first draft of two more short fantasy stories, as well as steaming on through Chapter Five of The Big WIP. I want to talk about The Big WIP so bad, but I'm chicken about jinxing it, so I'll just say it moves surely and steadily. Also, I still can't get used to calling it a 'novel' in public, so for now it will simply be The Big WIP. Novel makes me sound way too grown up.

The other thing I wanted to ramble about, since I'm here, is a weird experience I had one morning a couple of weeks back, one that I can't seem to get it out of my head. It was spooky and more than a little gory, so I will cut this for details about roadkill )
jenniferkoliver: (Wolves | Wouldn't Like Me)
I've uploaded a video on YouTube of my cat not particularly enjoying his Christmas present, the ungrateful little sod. In fact, I think I get more of a kick out of it than he does. I never knew those Zu-Zu Pets were so bloody funny.

Also, look what just arrived in the post. Probably the most awesome pair of shoes in the world (well, for a fantasy author they are), the Iron Fist "Wolfbeater" werewolf high heels: Pictures under the cut. These are just beyond all win ) The inner part of the shoe is lined with black velvet, the heel is covered in red velvet, and there are lovely black satin bows at the back. When I opened the box they looked quite narrow, and I was worried about my wide-fitting feet, but the shoes stretched out comfortably as I slipped them on. I love them so much, and hope they don't break my neck!

If anyone's interested in Iron Fist, you can find more quirky, horror-themed shoes here. I especially like the Zombie Stompers at the bottom of the page. :)

I hope everyone has been stuffing themselves with utterly divine food. If not, get thee to a foodery and stuff thyself silly! If this isn't the perfect time of year to do it (whether you celebrate the specific holiday or not), then I don't know what is. I've just indulged with another mince pie. There are four left. But for how long? Dun dun duuuuun.

Oh, and I got those crazy leopard print boots. They are pure win.

I'm also writing, which is in itself happy-inducing, especially because at the moment it seems to be working and I like what I see dripping off my fingertips. Ohpleaseletitcontinue. :)

Happy Day, everyone! *mwah*
jenniferkoliver: (Buffy the Vampire Slayer)
I can't believe it's Christmas eve! (Aw yeah, check out my festive rhyming skillz.) I hope everyone is prepared for the onslaught of food and merriment. I've been working hard to lose a few lbs this past month, just so I can put them all back on during the week between Xmas and New Year. Plan!

So my main goal for the next few days is this: write, write, read, and write. Re-write an older story that needs attention, and work on the idea for my next new story. Of course, there will be the usual festivities with the immediate family, and I'm hoping to catch up with a couple of friends online, too. But I also see the following week, when it's generally more quiet everywhere, as a chance to sit down without too many distractions and fingercrunch some words. Anyone else going to be writing through the holidays?

I am so close to finishing Merlin series 3, just two more episodes to go. I missed most of the episodes when they were on, and the last four or five I didn't even catch on the BBC iPlayer. Merlin is a great little show and I enjoy it, but it's not a keeper, and it's not strong enough to grab me and latch on as it's done to a few of my friends. It was nice seeing Harry Melling in episode 11, although it took me a few minutes to figure out he was Dudley in the Harry Potter films. He's lost so much weight!

Speaking of Merlin, a good friend of mine saw Colin Morgan in Covent Garden the other day buying waffles. I don't know why but I pictured this in character and in costume. Arthurian waffles—a taste fit for a king!

Even though I'll be around tomorrow, I'm going to wish those who celebrate it a MERRY CHRISTMAS now, just in case I don't get around to updating. And if you don't celebrate Xmas, have a lovely day anyway with whatever you're doing! ♥

Snow, snow, everywhere, and not enough time to act like a 10-year-old kid! Although I did shamelessly head outside to play with the cat in the snow yesterday morning. I don't think he was too impressed by the cold white ground, or his owner acting like a complete fool. Here's a picture of my cat lightly frosted with snowflakes sitting on my windowsill from a couple of weeks back. He came to the window looking all <O.O> and asking to be let in, but when I opened it the little bugger just perched on the sill between the outside and the inside, making it impossible for me to close the window again. In the end I nudged him off the edge (it's a bungalow, so don't call the RSPCA on me!).

Xmas is just around the corner and I'm still wondering WTF happened to November. The house is all festive and I'm excited, and I managed to get the shopping done in early December, which means the weather isn't disrupting life too much. Tonight I'm going out for a meal with a friend to a local Indian restaurant, and I know, without fail, that I'll order the Chicken Korma as I always do, even when I say to myself beforehand that I'll try something new. It's just too delicious, man. I... I can't not order it. *__*

So, did anyone else watch X Factor? I got into it by the time they went to the live shows and ended up rooting for Matt, who totally deserved to win with that epic Biffy Clyro cover. Beautiful! I also kind-of-sort-of backed Cher, because her songs were so much fun, and she introduced me to the glory of the mashup. *bops*

There's not a lot else going on. I'm still waiting to hear back about a story I submitted a few months ago. It's been well over the 60 day waiting period and I enquired last week, but so far there's nothing. I'll give it another three weeks, get the New Year out of the way, then try again. I'll keep you posted!
jenniferkoliver: (Foo Fighters | Learn to Fly)
Holy crap, it's been nearly a month since my last update. Crazy how time flies, ain't it?

I may have said it before, but it needs to be said again: the Playstation3 is evil. Evil, I tell you! I started playing Dragon Age: Origins one night and six hours later I couldn't remember my own name. [livejournal.com profile] erastes, have you played DAO? I just... oh, God. It's so addictive. I have an arcane warrior elf mage (no kidding, new heights of nerditude have been reached in my house) who is now tanked with a multitude of kickass spells and armour. It's easy to see how people become gamers. What I like about DAO is how thought through the characters are, all of them different, both hilarious and tragic, and with their own ambiguous motivations. It's like a little soap opera, but one you can run around in and interact with. There's so much angst, but at times it makes me laugh, and there are many gorgeous poignant moments that leave me feeling throat lumpy. D'aw.

So lots of stuff to catch up on, not least of which is you guys. I hope everyone has been keeping themselves well and as happy as possible! I've been having fun designing a logo for the lovely [livejournal.com profile] honeybean. It's always great working with people I know, and makes bouncing ideas back and forth an enriching experience while giving us the chance to catch up with each other. We're nearing completion on the project now, and I don't know what I'm going to do when it's finished.

Just about up to date with True Blood season 3. I keep waiting for it to peter out like a lot of these shows, but it just keeps getting better and better. Good times. Though damn, where has that hot werewolf gone?

But the best thing that's happened recently was me and a friend procuring Foo Fighters tickets for next year, in Milton Keynes on July 2nd – anyone else going to that? I CANNOT CONTAIN THE SQUEE! It's been 10 years since I last saw them live, they're my favourite band in the universe, and now I'll get to see their newer stuff in all its rocking glory. And I'll also get to worship at the Altar of Grohl once again. Eee! *runs around*

That's it for now. Wishing everyone well! Maybe soon I will be able to update about writing. It's been hard balancing everything lately, but I want to get that second short story re-written and polished before Xmas.
jenniferkoliver: (True Blood | Eric)
Camden was thoroughly raided! Bank account is now weeping like a little girl! It's taken me almost a week to get round to finishing this post, but here it is. Wednesday was a fruitful day full of sunlight (thank you, England) and haggling for bargains. A couple of the market vendors were intense, and one even offered to swap my friend A for a pretty lacy top I was eyeing. After some consideration, I declined his offer as I figured A would be sent off to some foreign sweatshop and I'd never see her again (she was very good about this whole fiasco). Anyway, there are some photos under the cut for anyone who hasn't experienced Camden's touristy awesomeness before, as well as a few promised pics of my loot. Camden high street, Horse Tunnel Market, and some pretty clothing badly modelled by moi )

So this week I'm planning to finish edits on the second short story and get it sent off to my beta. I'm 4 of 6 pages through right now, and my overall goal is to have this puppy polished and submitted to a magazine by the end of the month. *fingers crossed* I've also come to some helpful revelations about my novel and I want to get stuck into those shortly, too.

Oh, and I finally caught up with True Blood season 3. All I can say is: Alcide, omfg. Hottest werewolf I've ever seen!

And before I go tackle the rest of my edits, here's an interesting video about the music in Inception. I love this kind of geekdom!
jenniferkoliver: (South Park)
I swear I won't update this regularly all the time. I'm in New Journal Squee Mode, and I know my posting rate will drop. While this LiveJournal is new in terms of age, I've been on the site for close to seven years now, and the most I've ever posted in one day is 3 entries, and that only happened on the rare occasions I had a series of unrelated entries that I felt deserved their own moment in the spotlight.

Anyway! Sunday was the annual town fair, and for the first time in about ten years I attended. I'm shocked at how many stalls were selling mediocre jewellery and charging a bomb. And I'm talking cheap plastic beads strung on fishing line and priced at £10. Crazy! I ended up buying a chocolate cake (according to the label: crumbled digestive biscuits in a molten mix of dark chocolate drops, thick cream, golden syrup & margarine, topped with a layer of plain chocolate. Oh dear sweet lord, my waistline), and a make-up purse which I will be taking on a trip at the end of the month (more on that in another post). The thing that amused me most, though, was England's answer to Backstreet Boys )

Also, does anyone else feel totally ineloquent when it comes to writing reviews? I get so tongue-tied and nervous when attempting to share my thoughts on books and movies and music. I actually prefer a more vague star rating system to writing out what I did or didn't like about something. Not sure why, but there you go.
