Wot’s this? Egads! It’s a journal entry! O_O

Blogging/journaling is such a wonderful idea. In theory. I really do like doing it, too, but half the time my ideas for entries come to me right around the time mom starts telling Cami and I that we have to start on chores… By the time I’m sitting down to actually write something, I’ve mulled said idea over to the point where it’s unrecognizable. *looks mournfully at ded and mangled remnants of the thought-that-would-have-been*

So what you’re stuck with here is what is left of my mind after a Saturday of cleaning…

I feel like I have a permanent coat of dust on my hands. Bleck. Me no like cleaning garages. There are too many spiders out there. Whenever we go out there for serious de-dirtifying everyone knows that if Rebekah (oh—that’s me minus my pseudonym for anyone who doesn’t know) jumps up and starts screaming bloody murder, she’s made friends with another arachnid. Or maybe just with a spider-like piece of floating pet hair. *shudders* Ickiness.

Somewhere in the midst of my sweaty cleaning endeavors, my hair got really frizzy (I always wash my hair on Saturdays, and it often goes “poof” on me =P), and for all my smoothing I can’t get this one curl to stay out of my face. Normally, I kinda like it when my hair gets curly, but this curl looks amusingly like Superman’s (you know, that ONE conspicuous curl he ALWAYS has come rain or total immersion?). Cami thinks it’s pretty funny. *strikes a heroic Superman pose*

Oh, right—writerly talk. The incredible, fantastic, can’t-stop-thinking-about-it, WHOLE WEEK Cami and I spent with Polly (kel_candelae) has left me inspired in so many ways. I can’t say I’ve been writing tons, exactly, but I am wrapping up a scene that’s been proving quite a bear to actually end. I really can’t figure out why it’s been so hard, either. The scene before it was rather action-oriented, and I really felt unusually satisfied with it, especially considering it was a rather pivotal bit of action. So maybe I’m craving another action scene? O_o

This scene I’m struggling to end is actually more the type I tend to speed through. A library setting, only two characters (too many and I have a hard time including everyone), some hurt/comfort-ish dialogue, and in the end—per Cami’s recommendation—the added fun element of a dog. All in all, I just don’t understand why it’s taken me as long as it has… I have my suspicions, though. Either it’s that action craving (doubtful), or a certain character didn’t enjoy being in the scene. Actually, I think neither of the characters enjoyed it that much. *eyes them warily* Well they’d just better get used to it… Harrumph.

Anywho, I’m off to try and write a little more. And make another cup of tea. I’ve really gotten quite addicted to tea lately. *yum* Maybe I can convince Cami to bake some gingerbread with me, too… *veeery yum*

Oh, I totally share your dislike of cleaning garages.... *shudders* Once you see one spider, everything looks like a spider from that point on. But.... *giggles at Nef's Superman curl* What does that say about your garage? You have to be Superman to clean it? Or that cleaning it turns you into Superman? :D (Spiders being Kryptonite, maybe....)

But YAAAY that you're feeling writerly inspiration! *cheers* Oo, I can't wait to read this.... LOL, but I sympathize with your difficulty in ending scenes. Sometimes, they just want to keep going, and going, and going, and going...and the characters won't shut up.... :P

Ah, tea. I often wish I actually liked it, because it's such a bookish beverage, and often I'll drink it when I'm sick, just because it feels like the Thing To Do. But I just...don't care for it, for some reason. *slurps coffee instead*

Well, while this scene keeps going on and on, the characters keep getting quieter and quieter, leaving me, the author, trying to come up with something for an end that doesn't feel too sappy. But I do look forward to having you read some of Teh dream!fic (anything but this scene I'm belaboring, that is... =P).

I think the bookish connotations surrounding the idea of tea really are half its charm. I do like it, though, with a little honey and ginger in it, and maybe a bit of cream (mmm, I want some now). Coffee’s still first in my heart, though. Now if only all my favorite beverages didn’t stain have the annoying side-effect of staining your teeth. =P

LOL! The degrees of association between fandoms are truly endless.... :D

But I do look forward to having you read some of Teh dream!fic

*bounces up and down* Yes, yes, yes! Whenever you're ready, I'm ready. I can't wait to read some of it.... *giddy grin*

And I miss talking writerly! Especially with you. We. Must. Talk. ;)

Well... *sheepish* I'm already a little stalled again. How pathetically short was that burst? It may come back, though, who knows... ^^
