Still Writing in The Void

Still plugging away at my fics in my free-time. I've mostly been in Confirmation and Bold as Love. I was hoping to publish my Gutter Punk fic in time for International Clash Day on Feb 9th, but we'll see ahah. I'm still working full-time and going to school full-time, and while I love escaping into this space in my free time, my schedule has been tight. I did manage to give this site a few tweaks and I think the improvements have really helped the desktop and mobile browsing.

Back to Basics

Taking a step back from fandom interaction to focus on life stuff for a little while. I'm still planning to write. Feel free to email me at lefthandedrick@gmail.com

Hello, Summer of Peace and Love!

World is crazy right now, but around this time of year, I always turn up, tune in, and drop out. Feeling the summer vibe and capitalizing on it to publish some of the summer themed fics in the Starry AU. Keep an eye out for the fics on the bulliteins TBU list! (I may have also been working on Afterlife, but I'm gonna keep that hush hush because I don't wanna curse it).

Site Updates & S4 Love

Now that I have enough published fics, I have restructured the website to better navigate stories by section. Should be publishing Entropy, RICO, and Maybe 24/7 in the coming weeks, so keep an eye out!

Quarantine Writing

Well, my last fic aged unsettlingly into the new year. I've been quietly working on a bunch of fics simotaneously as the inspiration strikes (I promise Afterlife is still on my mind)! Work got busy around November and therapy got intense. Both of them sapped my writing energy. I did some art for 322 (see below) if you have not seen it, and now that everyone is staying indoors and socially isolating, I'm looking forward to updating my fics. I enrolled to return to school in the fall (might change depending on coronovirus aha) so I might have to give more focus to IRL stuff this year. Just know that even if I do get scarce I'm still balls deep in this AU. I'm hoping to reply to a few more comments on Ao3 soon. I love them all and it really does encourage me to keep writing. Follow my twitter for any of the updates to the fic pages!

Drabbles 2020!

Welcome to the new year! Because I really like to write stories that have that full circle narrative structure, I tend to write really slow. Or I have a lot of snippets, scenes, drabbles that are polished, but are not yet a whole (publishable) fic. I'm going to start posting these scenes/drabbles here on the fic pages for those of you who follow my work! I'm planning to work on afterlife and oneshots for Jan & Feb. Keep an eye out for updates, and follow my twitter for any of the updates to the fic pages!

Citadel Libraian

Haven't been doing much writing for the past few weeks. I've been doing some housekeeping of my art files, meta, etc. I'll be focused on my Secret Santa over the next few weeks, but I've also been working on Afterlife! I'm always working on my 20+ stories in the background as I get inspired to work on them. I'm a slow writer, but I've been loving the kudos and comments on my stories! I'm glad to know they are worth waiting for!

Happy Ricksgiving!

I made some slight updates to this site and have been working hard on my Secret Santa this year! I've also been on an art kick, and have been wanting to make more world art for the stary AU. Keep an eye out for it!

TMTC is Bold as Love

The next 10 chapters of TMTC are gearing up to have a really different feel than the rest of the fic. So I decided to break the third arc into a whole new fic "Bold as Love" Keep an eye out for it to go up! I also took a minute to do a few updates on this site. I've been working mostly on Metomorphosos with the goal to update by the end of Oct. But it's going hard on the sci-fi, and is taking extra time to fact-check and research. I'm gonna do it for Scientist!Rick though. (I've also been adding a few art peices to the fic galleries so check them out!)

Slowly opening up my fic documents and remembering where I left off. Getting back into the swing of things, but I am back and writing again!

Summer Hiatus

Fics are on hiatus for the rest of the summer! I will be moving and working on some big projects at work, so I will have to hiatus fics until the fall. My goal is to return with an update to Afterlife, and a couple of short stories!

Edited!

I've taken the time to edit all of TMTC, Confirmation (updated on ao3) and Afterlife (not yet updated). I've noticed I have a tendency to use run-on sentences and commas everywhere, so most of the editing has been with a focus on that as well as tense consistencey. I hope you notice an improvement in the clarity and flow of the Starry AU fics!

Time Investments

Still working on updating this website. It's gotten to the point where I think it will take less time to code a fandom website for my fics than take a chance with a social media site. Mastodon has been a great alternative, but what a miss most about tumblr, was that everything could be in one place. My playlists, my blog entries, my art, and drabbles. Hand coding a site has gotten the closest to that. While a custom site has been able to do so much more than tumblr ever could, there is less interaction. If you want to say hello, drop me an email at lefthandedrick@gmail.com. (I know, what is this the 90's?). Next thing we know, we're gonna have problematic list serves.

Also, still working on an Afterlife update. Tons of stuff written, but still figuring out larger story structure issues, and smaller edits to chapters 1-5. There are also a ton of short stories that are a few edit passes from being publish-ready.

Structural Issues in Afterlife

Steadily working on Ch. 7 of Afterlife! (I've been doing a slight edit/update to chapters 1-5 because It's been a year since I began it, and my writing skills have noticeably jumped). I've also been figuring out larger structural issues with the story, so I’ll likely update Confirmation, and some of the Starry AU expanding short stories.

Updating Some Site Code

I had originally intended this to be a single page website, however, I underestimated our ability to worldbuild, aha. But the good news is that I've added art galleries for the fics that have them, and mobile page time loads on the landing page should not be as long.
