  3. Had a football party to watch two rivals play in a bowl game. Wife and her family loves the blue team, my family and I love the red team. Frustrating game, but I made some pot stickers and hot dang were they tasty. Favorite football tradition for me right there.

    I did it wrong. I saw Helio's challenge to write a 25-word log line, and one of her log line samples was this:
    I came up with a 25-word story based on her sample:




    Short Term Forecast (25 words)

    FAX: The space-time continuum will implode in two days. FAX4D creators take full responsibility and leap from the 88th floor.

    FORECAST: It's raining men.

  9. Pro tip: don't teach your 1 year old how to say touchdown and teach him the hand signal. They'll yell touchdown every time they see people raise an arm above their head. They also do so at inappropriate times.

    On a more positive Shaun of the Dead note...

    Just finished part of a chapter while listening to The Blue Wrath(Bloated) by I Monster.

    Greatest zombie music ever.

    The last few days I've been thinking about copy-pasting all my comments from Mythic Scribes into Scrivener and finding a total word count, then plotting it into separate days, just to see how much further along I'd be on my manuscript if I'd been working on it instead for those accumulating minutes.

    But it doesn't work that way, and I'm too lazy to make the effort the comparison would require.

    ^Holy cow, then all the time I've spent playing Fallout means I would've had like two finished projects by now.

    Oh, well. :) I'm actually on the verge of finishing one at the moment, only a bit more to go. I'd be done with it in a matter of hours but somehow, I've hit this fear snag where finishing seems impossible. Lately, it's been: who wants to read this crap? Sigh.

    I'm leaning toward that same fear snag. Although it's currently being stalled by a sort of "I can't finish this" yapping in my head. My last (please-please my last) revision, to get it done, I have to delete certain scenes and write certain events. Some of the scenes to delete I like, same with the ones needing to be written, but there are scenes I need to delete that I don't like, and I need to write scenes I'm not feeling crazy about.

    That's writing I guess. To make a story work we have to put stuff in that's not in the same "I'm loving this: level as when we started the story.

    The comparison also doesn't work (for me) because writing fiction is about twenty times harder than writing a forum post. I consider one an art, and the other a kind of babbling. So I'd use a ratio like that: twenty words of forum post is equal to about one word of fiction.

    After returning from a weekend in a winter wasteland to spend time with my family I am absolutely baffled/intrigued by the concept of familial relationships. I would never willingly befriend them (except for my grandmother who has dementia and is mad as a box of frogs and absolutely hilariously inappropriate), but due to sharing some DNA I am forever obliged to spend time with those dysfunctional nutjobs.

    /adds more rum to her eggnog and is very thankful to be home

    I know the feeling of a dysfunctional family. Sadly we can't choose our family, but we can choose who we like, don't like, can and can't stand so, yay to that.

    After a long night of a loud, crazy family dinner with an added crazy via my grandfather who arrived early, I now finally have the house to myself. Okay me and the dogs but I've always loved, tolerated and could stand them. Right now one is keeping my feet warm and the other is eyeing my Milanos.

    So I am making this my last post of the day as I turn to my story and the long, chilling barrel of an arduous revision.
    Happy Writing and Merry Christmas everyone. :)
