If only...

You Are a Playwright
You are a highly literate wordsmith. You love both reading and writing.
You are also a natural storyteller. You can turn a mediocre anecdote into a riveting tale.

You find people and all aspects of life fascinating. No topic is off limits for you.
In modern times, you would make a good filmmaker or novelist.

In a desire to know my flist a little better...

All of the people on my flist write fanfic for B7 and various other fandoms. Your mission, should you chose to accept it, is to answer the following questions regarding writing fanfic.

1 Why do you write fanfic?
2 When did you write your first fanfic and which fandom was it for?
3 Which fandoms do you, or have you, written for?
4 Do you read much fanfic or do you mainly write?
5 What comes easiest for you when writing?
(dialogue, descriptions, plot, characterizations, humour, angst...)
6 Which genres do you mainly write? (action, angst, dark, drama, horror, humour...)
7 Which genres will you not write?
8 Are reader comments/responses important?
9 Do you use a beta reader?
10 Which is your favourite character to write fanfic for and why?
11 Which are your favourite ships (including friendships) that you write the most?
12 Do you have characters that are so strongly established that they're in your heads?
13 Which characters are you most comfortable doing a POV for? Which is the hardest?

[livejournal.com profile] debris4spike pointed out that I haven't answered these questions. I guess it's only fair.

...so here goes... )

Kal's Mental Age:

55 Years Old.

And speaking of ages and just because I'm bored, I started making a list of things I haven't done or used in a very long time and most likely never will again.

Your job, if you chose to accept it, is to add to the list.

Part 2 is inspired by [livejournal.com profile] vilakins, who noticed the last list was skewed to silly women. This one is mainly silly men. Enjoy!

Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] debris4spike. What's even sadder/funnier about this is that I sent this out on an email and got several replies back from people who said that they've seen some of these or similar things happen.


Recently, when I went to McDonald's I saw on the menu that you could have an order of 6, 9 or 12 Chicken McNuggets. I asked for a half dozen nuggets.

'We don't have half dozen nuggets,' said the teenager at the counter.

'You don't?' I replied.

'We only have six, nine, or twelve,' was the reply.

'So I can't order a half dozen nuggets, but I can order six?'

'That's right.'

So I shook my head and ordered six McNuggets

I was in two minds when I did this so both of them had a stab at it. It may be because I currently have too many people in my head. Can you all pipe down so I can sound somewhat sane? And no wisecracks from you, Avon or I'm going to go find Servalan. I mean it.

This is what I feel like currently...

You Are a Fruitcake

People pretend you're sweet and precious, but they know how weird you really are!

And I swear that this one is in there somewhere too...

You Are a Gingerbread House

A little spicy and a little sweet, anyone would like to be lost in the woods with you.

kalinda001: (Playing ORAC)
When fictional characters have set up camp in your head and refuse to move out, it can get a bit crowded during writing time. And when even Vila starts showing up...sigh. Maybe I need a bigger head.

And BTW I want to thank all the people who contributed ideas for the lighter story. Some really wonderful and creative ideas. There are so many now that it's hard to chose. I might combine a couple or do a separate ad hoc piece too. Stay tuned...

Where my brain explodes... )

Back from a tiring trip to Ocean Park. Lots of cute dolphins, pandas and sea lions. Did this meme from [livejournal.com profile] vilakins . The result is predictable.

Your result for Howard Gardner's Eight Types of Intelligence Test... )

kalinda001: (Avon_Concerned)
I'm too sad to write today. A good forum friend died on the 28th. You won't know her here, her name was LaraAvila and she was a great Avon fan. She was on an acting tour in Europe when she fell ill a couple of weeks ago. Heard from her family that she passed away. Fortunately she was able to make the journey home to be with her family.

Really can't bring myself to finish part 2 of the current chapter. Avon is in a bad place at the moment and it just does not help writing right now. I might have to postpone posting for a few days.
kalinda001: (Grem_Come out)
From many people...

So, kalinda001, your LiveJournal reveals...

You are... 5% unique (blame, for example, your interest in ruth dragon) and 6% herdlike (partly because you, like everyone else, enjoy writing). When it comes to friends you are normal. In terms of the way you relate to people, you are keen to please. Your writing style (based on a recent public entry) is overcomplicated.

Your overall weirdness is: 38

(The average level of weirdness is: 28.
You are weirder than 79% of other LJers.)

Find out what your weirdness level is!

These turned out better than I thought.
Did a couple of drabbles. One of the Avon and the Kitten stories and one of the longer stories from the Perceptions series.

In an attempt to get to know my flist better...

I've always been curious about some of the user names which people chose and I've finally decided to do something about it. Drop by, put up your feet and tell me how you decided on your LJ user name.

The origin of [livejournal.com profile] kalinda001:

This name comes from my (much much younger) school days. At one point I did some fiction writing and created a character named Kalinda; who wasn't connected to any fandom (I was young and naive in those days and had never even heard of fanfic).

As is invariably the case, when I decided to use it as my penname, I discovered that other people were already using it; and many variations thereof. Tacking on the '001' seemed to work on most sites.

This one seems fairly accurate for me. Even down to the choice of careers and types of games I prefer.

Seems I'm a INTP (Introverted iNtuitive Thinking Perceiving).

I'll take a stab at this...

Use the first letter of your name or user name to answer each of the following questions. They have to be real (or real fictional) places, names, or objects: nothing you've made up. Try to use different answers if the person you got this from has the same first initial. You CAN'T use your name for the boy's/girl's name question.

1) 4-LETTER WORD: Kiss
2) BOY'S NAME: Kerr
3) GIRL'S NAME: Kayla, Kally
4) OCCUPATION: Kingmaker
5) A COLOUR: Khaki
7) BEVERAGE: Kahlua Earthquake (which is a mix of white tequila, Kahlua and cola)
8) FOOD: Kielbassa, Kidney pie
10) A PLACE: Korea, Kenya
11) REASON FOR BEING LATE: Killing or Kissing...take your pick

Your Slogan Should Be
Kalinda001. Live the Pleasure.
kalinda001: (Avon_WhatDoWeHave)
Taken from lots of places

You are The Hermit

Prudence, Caution, Deliberation.

The Hermit points to all things hidden, such as knowledge and inspiration,hidden enemies. The illumination is from within, and retirement from participation in current events.

The Hermit is a card of introspection, analysis and, well, virginity. You do not desire to socialize; the card indicates, instead, a desire for peace and solitude. You prefer to take the time to think, organize, ruminate, take stock. There may be feelings of frustration and discontent but these feelings eventually lead to enlightenment, illumination, clarity.

The Hermit represents a wise, inspirational person, friend, teacher, therapist. This a person who can shine a light on things that were previously mysterious and confusing.

song meme

Going to take a stab at the tunes meme...

Step 1: Put your itunes on shuffle.
Step 2: Post the first line from the first 22 20 songs that play, no matter how embarrassing.
Step 3: Strike through the songs when someone guesses both artist and track correctly.
Step 4: For those who are guessing -- looking the lyrics up on a search engine is CHEATING!
Step 5: If you like the game, post your own.

Well, first of all, I don't have many songs on my iPod and what there is tends to be old stuff. Most of my iPod is jammed with video files cause it beats lugging around DVDs...hehe.

Hmm I don't think I have anything on this list which is after 1980s. Unless you look really hard. I do believe there is one there that is recent. I've cut it down to 20 songs.

 As seen on [livejournal.com profile] vilakins  journal.

1. Go to: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random
The first article title on the page is the name of your band.
2. Then go to: http://www.quotationspage.com/random.php3
The last four words of the very last quote is the title of your album.
3. And lastly, go to: http://www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days/
The third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover. (If you can't copy the image you may have to screen-capture it, or reload the page and try again)

Album under the cut... )
