When I got home, I was tired of staring at a computer screen, so I stared at the TV instead. A little bit of Old Christine, some being horrified about the blatant sexism, agism, and omg obsession with marriage of Age or Love *gaaaah ---- a tad less objectifying than Pussycat Dolls, but only barely*, some Hell's Kitchen to clean the palate, followed by the wonderful PBS series on great art masters (Rembrandt --- it got a bit dry when they went into his later years after his hey day and the death of his wife though).
Somewhere in there, a lid popped off a barrel and the bunny for spn_50states
came barreling out. Including a character. That actually fit nicely into the legend I wanted, though I haven't exactly figured ouot how to fit the legend, the bit of "odd" history lore, and the case together yet, but we'll see what Sam and Dean have to say when they show up.
But you know what's really weird? Writing about a place I've been to instead of something I've seen on TV. And writing about an event I've experienced (okay, not all of it. there's no amount of money in the world that would get me to work in an outdoor food stall in OK heat. And my mother would never have made me do it because I would have made her life a living hell. Plus, she had enough trouble to get me interested in cooking at all without ruining my interest with horrible manual labor like that. But I watched her suffer through it! So research!).
My verb tenses are all over the place. I know if I let poisontaster
even look at this draft, I'll have huge notes about SETTING! DETAIL! I CAN'T SEE IT!
And yet, two pages. that I didn't force. *knocks on wood*
Good, frog. Good. More of this, but without the eating of my brain till the diss is done. If you can do that, there's a bunch of whatever favorite bug you want. Just name it.
I have no clue if I can actually make the Aug 1 deadline. And I cant' say I'm going to kill myself trying. Right now, I just hope the other two writers for the state aren't doing the same myth or town. *prays* It's a big state, but not many people. (worse, I hope the two writers aren't anyone I've actually met in RL).
