Progress Report for Oasis

Well, I was so pleased with my progress this last week, I wanted to brag.  :D 

I shouldn't brag too much though - because this doesn't really mean "done" - it means I've written a paragraph or two or three for the prompts, and have tentatively placed them in the timeline. 

I'm trying to do this for all the prompts as quickly as possible because I want to be done by the time the comic starts coming out in October (6 issues?  I'm thinking one a month??), since the comic will give us more canon to play with.  I'm also planning on participating in Nanowrimo this year, and would like to have this monster done (or close to it) before November rolls around, so that I can do my best to win that thing.

Which is all a long way of saying:  I'm making wonderful progress - even if nothing is really set in stone yet!!  LOL


176 / 800 prompts. 22% done!

Yay, progress!

Have I mentioned lately how I'm still completely in awe that you're writing 800 prompts?

And ooh, NaNo! I'm not sure I'll participate this year. My co-author and I wrote the entirety of our third book last November, which was quite an adventure. She was studying abroad so the whole thing had to be coordinated in two different countries. Loads of fun. ;)

I can't even imagine coordinating 800 prompts. You are just amazing.

**blushes**

I've never participated in NaNo before, so I have no idea if I'll be successful or not. But, I'm going to give it the ol' college try anyway. :)

I can't even imagine coordinating 800 prompts. You are just amazing.

LOL - well, I'm not done yet - and if the fic is horrible, then I'm not sure how amazing I'll be. ;D However, I'm finding the process absolutely fascinating, so if nothing else, I'm definitely entertaining myself...

Quotes

"All right," said Susan. "I'm not stupid. You're saying humans need...fantasies to make life bearable."

REALLY? AS IF IT WAS SOME KIND OF PINK PILL? NO. HUMANS NEED FANTASY TO BE HUMAN. TO BE THE PLACE WHERE THE FALLING ANGEL MEETS THE RISING APE.

"Tooth fairies? Hogfathers? Little --"

YES. AS PRACTICE. YOU HAVE TO START OUT LEARNING TO BELIEVE THE LITTLE LIES.

"So we can believe the big ones?"

YES. JUSTICE. MERCY. DUTY. THAT SORT OF THING.

-- Susan and Death in Hogfather by Terry Pratchett

---------------------

"And no practical definition of freedom would be complete without the freedom to take the consequences. Indeed, it is the freedom upon which all the others are based."

-- Lord Vetinari in Going Postal by Terry Pratchett

---------------------

They thought the Library was a dangerous place because of all the magical books, which was true enough, but what made it really one of the most dangerous places there could ever be was the simple fact that it was a library.

-- Guards! Guards! by Terry Pratchett

---------------------

As a wizard, it was something that Ponder had only before encountered in acorns: a tiny soundless voice which said, yes, I am but a small, green, simple object - but I dream about forests.

-- Interesting Times by Terry Pratchett

---------------------

In the 24th century, there will be no hunger. There will be no greed. And every child will know how to read.

-- Gene Roddenberry, as repeated by Jonathan Frakes in the documentary How William Shatner Changed the World

---------------------

We've got two lives, one we're given and the other one we make
And the world won't stop, and actions speak louder
Listen to your heart, and what your heart might say
Everything we got, we got the hard way.

-- Mary Chapin Carpenter, The Hard Way from the album Come On, Come On

---------------------

Cause when they own the information, oh
They can bend it all they want.

-- John Mayer, Waiting on the World to Change from the album Continuum

---------------------

Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the little voice at the end of the day that says, "I'll try again tomorrow."

-- Mary Anne Radmacher, as seen in Uncle John's Bathroom Reader Tales to Inspire

---------------------

I never loved the soldier
Until there was a war.
Or thought about tomorrow
'til my baby hit the floor.
I only talk to God
When somebody's about to die.
I never cherished freedom
Freedom never cries.

-- Five for Fighting, Freedom Never Cries from the album Two Lights

---------------------

It may sound absurd: but don't be naive
Even heroes have the right to bleed
I may be disturbed: but won't you concede
Even heroes have the right to dream

-- Five for Fighting, Superman (It's Not Easy) from the album American Town

---------------------

Had a dream last night took a time travellin' ride
Back to my childhood where those monsters reside
They snack on innocence and dine on self-esteem
But I like to be in touch with what makes me scream
Vampires, mummies and the Holy Ghost
These are the things that terrify me the most.
No alien, psychopath or MTV host
Scares me like vampires,mummies and the Holy Ghost.

-- Jimmy Buffett, Vampires, Mummies and the Holy Ghost from the album Fruitcakes

---------------------

"I want to believe that... the dead are not lost to us. That they speak to us... as part of something greater than us - greater than any alien force. And if you and I are powerless now, I want to believe that if we listen, to what's speaking, it can give us the power to save ourselves."

-- Fox Mulder, The X-Files from the episode The Truth, pt. 2
