Inspiration is good.

Sent the story to seldomifever to read & perhaps cheerlead at me a bit. It's still so fragmentary despite the bulk. Must attempt to fill in the gaps. The thematic stuff has only begun to take form in my head and so most of it isn't present in the draft. Just some bits in a cemetery in sunlight. Hrrmph. However, I have new visual inspiration in the form of this Wickedfox manip, which happens to be perfect for reasons the artist could never have guessed. But it's like she made it just for this story. Mmm. Check it out.

Spousal unit wants me to be writing original fiction this month. It will happen. The novel setting that's been bouncing around in my head for a while now is going to have some little bits of action happening in it, in prose, as a way to explore the territory. I have only vague ideas about what goes on in this setting, but it's a) fantasy because there is magic b) horror-tinged because there is violence and bad things happening c) loaded with politics because there is conflict between two groups who want to run things. And our dude, dude, and dudette in the middle. See how specific I am? Yeah! It is somewhat clearer in my head, but I don't want to let the pent-up storytelling energy dissipate itself in non-prose manners.

Perhaps that is superstition.

While I tinker with words, how shall I procrastinate? Meme or ridiculous poll?

Random: Not to put too fine a point on it / Say I'm the only bee in your bonnet. While we're on the topic, compare this, that, and the other thing.
