I'm kinda brain dead from tired, and it's hot, and I'm having trouble staying on task. Give me exciting things to think about while I'm on my lunchbreak? Help wake me up?

From [personal profile] helens78:
I have in my hands a list of ten characters, numbered 1-10. Ask me something about any two or three of these characters, and I'll write you 200-500 words about them.

Example questions:
- Who likes bottoming more, 4 or 10?
- Under what circumstances would 1 pay 5 for sex?
- What was 6's first date with 7 like?
- 2 has a kink for armbinders. How does 8 react?
- 3, 6, and 9 walk into a bar. How do they end up going home together, and what happens when they get there?

Or they can be totally gen questions, whatever floats your boat. If you can, reply to the DW post here (anyone know how to put that fancy bit at the bottom of cross-posts that says 'this was originally posted at DW, where there are X comments'?) because I can't see LJ at work.
I started keeping (rough) track of what books I was reading in December 2009, and based on that count (and acknowledging that there's almost certainly books I've forgotten to record) I've read 54 books this year. Clearly, the way to do 52 books in 52 weeks thing was to stop trying :P

I signed up for mini_nano on LJ this year, and with [personal profile] meghanc holding my hand and poking me and cheerleading me, I wrote 16,119 words in 30 days! That's the most I've written in... well, definitely this year, and definitely the most ever in a recorded time frame. I've got three-ish short stories, and a document with 9905 words in it that probably still has god-know-how-many words left to go. Holy shit.

Because I was saddened to find out about this community about 12 hours after sign ups closed last year, I hearby spread the word: [livejournal.com profile] mini_nanowrimo is taking sign ups until 31 October. Like Nanowrimo but surmountable!
One of those notes-to-self-in-public things:

- The [livejournal.com profile] apocalyptothon fic draft is due by the 15th. *cue deliberate, calm breathing* I can totally do this. Just write, and the rest will come. It always does.

- The book review for [livejournal.com profile] mynxii. This will be good in a challenging way...

- Then there's finishing the [livejournal.com profile] apocalyptothon before I go to Tasmania. This will be smooth sailing, mostly, because the draft will be there to work off.

- After that, I shall reward myself by going to Tasmania (\o/), and with the solid colour yarn I shall purchase from Yarnomat, I shall make a far better/prettier pair of toe-up Monkey socks than the start of one I frogged this afternoon. *nods determinedly, heads for bed*

Yes, I'm publicly posting word counts. They will make no sense to anyone, I just respond well to the 'people are watching me/I am publicly accountable' method of motivation. :P

Fic: "Placeholder 1 of 5"
(Minimum of 100 words a day)

Previously: 0
Today's total: 525!
Total word count: 525
Dear Apocalypse writer,

Firstly, Apocalypse fic! Wheee! Just the idea of this pleases me mightily. Go for broke, say I. If you lean towards fluffy Gen fic, go for it, if you can manage the fluff! If you lean towards nihilist threesome smutfests, go for that. Whatever you write I’ll delight in it simply because it’s apocalypse fic, and for me.

That said, if you’re looking for pointers... )
I fail spectacularly well at actual fic prompt writing, but I've been feeling the lack of writing/ideas recently, so I present a writing meme gakked from [livejournal.com profile] ignipes:

Give me a prompt (fandom, pairing or character, random words or scenarios, etc.) and I will write one sentence of fic for the prompt.
