  1. Actually, there's one scene...They *do* interact. Once.

    Does it count if the male characters don't actually have a conversation, but if one refers to the other with disdain and disgust while he is in the vicinity? Hmm...

    Dammit! First painting of the semester wasn't finished for critique. I was hoping I could turn over a new leaf this fall, but apparently not. Good thing my professor is flexible about late work...

    This morning when I went into the break room at the office to make coffee I saw two of my colleagues standing around chatting. Nothing unusual about that. It seemed a nice an interesting conversation, but I had nothing to add so I didn't really but in to comment.

    A few minutes later, when I'm back at my desk, one of the above colleagues sent me a message asking who the person they'd been talking to was.

    Some 6 year-old being carried by her dad just screamed in my ear because she was afraid of my dog...

    Time to milk my frustration for writing, at least it's good for that.
     
  7. What if Christmas and Halloween were reversed?

    Like at Christmas, you had a bunch of little kids running around in Santa Claus costumes, and at Halloween, you had people dressed as zombies and monsters with fake blood and wounds sitting in malls with little kids lining up with their frazzled parents to sit on their laps.

    I don't see much of a difference really.:p Both are times I try to avoid going out in public.
    The Halloween presents might be more interesting...
    Aw.... A Zombie apocalypse Baseball bat/mace with ten inch nails driven through it.... Just what I wanted...
     
  9. On the other hand, Christmas gifts would get more complicated. You'd have to buy presents for all the kids in your neighborhood, and instead of writing a christmas list, you'd go door to door.

    The universal appeal of sugar really is fortunate.
     
  10. How would one go about publishing poetry?

    Also, is there any way to tell if your poetry is any good? It seems so subjective...

    I've got this weird urge to describe my main character as "six-foot-four and full of muscles" - I think that means it's time to stop for the night and go to bed.

    He doesn't even have any vegemite sandwiches.

    I self-published through lulu.com - I haven't really done any marketing so it's not selling, but I'll give it a go next time Valentine's Day comes around.
    I have a few copies for sale at a local cafe, and they sell a few now and then. Most copies I've given away to friends and family though.

    If you're afraid to show it to others because it's too personal, that's probably a good indication it's got some merit.

    If the reality is actually a sandbox game in spirit of Minecraft, are we playing it wrong? So far it seems that the humanity is more concerned in looping the same loop over and over, based on really short span goals and trying to maximise individual happiness / laziness, no matter what is eventually going to happen on a long time span.

    I really want to burst into song now.

    Reaver are you trying to tempt me? Because I come from the land of plenty.

    I recently bought a couple of old Polaroid cameras at a flea market for 1-5 bucks each. Turns out each one is worth about $80-100 in the condition they're in...Nice. :D

    I don't understand when people say they don't read Indie books. They are often indistinguishable from trad pub books if done right. It's kind of offensive when people assume (via their statements) that Indie publishers are piles of shit who don't care about their books or presenting them in a professional fashion. Like, oh, your book looks so professional and it's Indie?

    Wow, go figure. I actually care about the art I craft! I find this view ignorant, offensive, and downright rude. Indie publishers care about their work selling to the masses, so that means we have to make it professional.
