My absolute most amazing thing that I’m grateful today is INSPIRATION. I wrote it all big because it’s exciting. I woke up this morning from a dream that I’d just been running a murder mystery larp. And I could remember enough characters and plot points that I was able to make four pages of notes. My lovely boss said I could go home early from work and I’ve been writing ever since! 9 out of 13 characters have a first draft character sheet. I also have a short story idea to write up and have been making slow progress on the edit of Rain. Nice one.
The Pronunciation Manual shouldn’t be as funny as it is. But it is hilarious!
Tumblr goodness this week: Dana Scully‘s fashion through years of X-Files, an excellent source of Dr Who gifs and pictures and a fantasy art tumblr specialising in images of women in reasonable armour.
Honourable Mentions: Creating things like quilts and games and stories, fresh sheets on the bed, a long hot bath, laughing with friends, buying parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme and hoping the supermarket check out operator would notice and say something (he didn’t), the guns going off on Roseneath, seeing a real life seal cuddled up by the Wharewaka cafe having a snooze, new Lego minifigures, warm feet, The Master, new Dr Who, writing fic with Sam (Yes! So good) and singing harmonies in Rock Band with Steve.
Two cleverbots talking to each other. It’s pretty funny, they also discuss God.
