|Thoughts about too many things
||[Nov. 26th, 2014|07:54 am]
Sometimes when I get sick, instead of being tired and wanting to sleep all the time, I get insomnia.
Which is why I slept all yesterday afternoon, then stayed up all night until I could take a walk in the early morning rain. I got an opportunity to wear my cape - it's tan with nice brown grosgrain ribbon around the hem, and a beautifully bright red lining, and good deep pockets, and did I mention it has a sailor collar. (I really love this cape, is what I'm saying.) Helped keep me dry under the huge umbrella - it's one of those light-up ones. Doesn't actually light much up, but if it were dark and you just wanted to read a business card or something, I guess it would help.
Anyway, my brain went a bit into overdrive thinking about some things I've watched lately.

I've also been thinking about programming an automatic fanfic cross-posting program for a while. You'd feed it a clean html'd version of your fic, it would pick out the excess paragraph tags, and then ask you for different headers. You fill out your info, it posts to DW/LJ as you wish (well, my DW crossposts already, but maybe some people want to keep them separate or only post to one). Then it grabs the URLs for you and waits for you to post the cleaned version of your fic to AO3 and FFnet. AO3 is more complicated, not sure it would be a great idea to automate it. You give it the URLs of those, then it spits out a formatted header and links for posting to Tumblr.
(Okay, I guess it could be used for other fanworks as well. But I usually do fic, so that's what I imagine it for.)
Think I might actually try working it out when my computer science project is turned in and finals are done. Crossposting is such a pain, even with templates, that if I can automate I really should.
