19th-Aug-2006 09:12 pm - Sneak Peak of Next Chapter
Yes. I am still quite alive. School's just started again. Took me two weeks to get used to it again. This year we've got an extended schedule that's really drying me of my mental capabilities. In any case, here's what would probably be the first half of my next chapter. I hope to post the full chapter soon. Within this week, in fact. I've typed up about 6,000 words. Several more to go. Should take no more than a few days (I usually write a thousand words per day).

There you have it. Not much happened yet. There are a lot of scenes in this chapter. The shortness of each scene is deliberate. The scenes won't necessarily cover from moment-to-moment, but will jump and skip around.

I'm done. Here is the unbeta'd copy. I'm also sending it to my beta, who will hopefully get back to me soon. The final draft will most likely be vastly different from this one. I love my grammar!beta. She's very good at catching even the smallest faults.

18th-Jun-2006 06:27 pm - Part One of 'Tis Midnight

Here, I've posted the first part of the chapter, which is about 6,700 words long. I have about 4,000 more words to go. Wish me luck! I want to finish it by tomorrow! 

This is part one of the chapter, 'Tis Midnight.

I got my May SAT II results yesterday...

Math IIC -- 800
Chemistry -- 720
Literature -- 680

Total: 2200 exactly

*sigh* Math was good, but I was really hoping for better in the other two. I'm gonna take them over again in November--and hopefully score better next time. No, I'm pretty sure I will...^^

So. I took an SAT I practice test today and scored a 2340, so I'm pretty happy about that. If only I could score that well on the real one... we'll see...

That SAT program I'm going to (that I mentioned in my earlier post) is really helping, much to my surprise. I really was quite skeptical when I first started, but after seeing the results, I'm quite impressed!

As for the next chapter, 'Tis Midnight, I have nearly 4,000 words done. But as I've explained in my earlier post, the SAT program is taking control of my life for the next week and two days. I get home at seven in the evening, mentally drained, and though I have written quite a bit more, I've just recently gone over them and am terribly suprised at how awful what I've written was. I clearly wasn't as awake as I thought I was when I wrote those scenes.

So. I've got a blessed half-day on Saturday, which means I can finish the chapter in the afternoon. Hopefully. *fingers crossed*

Uh, I want good SAT scores! IS THAT SO MUCH TO ASK? *sigh* I'm not bitter. Really, I'm not. *tries to looks innocent*

My parents are expecting quite a bit from me. After all, if your siblings go to the top of the top, its expected that you follow....

Hmm....

Enough. I've just realized how rambling I am. I'd better cut my rant short.

Toodles for now...

Naturally attractive, you take good care of your looks. 
You are not egoistic, and you make life as comfortable as possible. 
You look for kindness in others - though you are seldom happy with yourself.

What is Your Celtic Horoscope? 

Your Brain's Pattern
You have a dreamy mind, full of fancy and fantasy. You have the ability to stay forever entertained with your thoughts. People may say you're hard to read, but that's because you're so internally focused. But when you do share what you're thinking, people are impressed with your imagination.

Your Hidden Talent
You have the power to persuade and influence others. You're the type of person who can turn a whole room around. The potential for great leadership is there, as long as you don't abuse it. Always remember, you have a lot more power over people than you might think!
These are me, through and through. I'm actually quite surprised how accurate they are. Hmm...

Oh, and for some bad news: My parents are sending me to some intensive SAT I Study Program, 8 hours a day (since it's summer), and so i won't have too much time to write as I'd like to. The next chapter actually might not be done in the next two days. Then again, I've already written nearly two thousand words since my last post, a few hours ago, so who knows what I'll get gone?

Epilogue -- Hogwarts Acceptance Letter

This is my new outline--and as you can see, it has become uber-long. But that's okay. Plotbunnies and twists that were supposed to be in the sequel were just mixed into this one.

It will still probably change--and I pray it will change to become smaller. Hopefully while actually writing it, I can burn away some chapters. (Although, looking at my current trend, I'm actually adding more chapters constantly!)

So. Quick things. I've got a pretty detailed idea of what's going to happen in each chapter, and I'm fairly excited at my plot. It's... different. And very explosive. Currenly I have seven arcs of action--counting the two we've already had (remember, the attack on Godric's Hollow and the Diagon Alley one?)--and that's pretty neat, really, since my original had only about four.

Tom Riddle the Horcrux will be very naughty. Actually, I hate him. I just think about what he's going to do, and I want to kill him off right now. But I can't. *sigh*

Young Again: The Rewrite will span the years between Harry being 15 months old, to when he turns eleven.

Anywho, here's the brief overview for the next chapter, 'Tis Midnight:

Scene 1 -- Harry -- 3,500
Scene 2 -- Minerva -- 2,000
Scene 3 -- Harry -- 2,500

I have a little over 1,000 words written. I'll probably finish it within the next two days.

Well, I better get a head start, then! Toodles!
