Glrrrgh, gluh. - The Phantom Librarian
Spewing out too many words since November 2003

Glrrrgh, gluh.
I'm just having one of those days when I want to stick my tongue out at people. It's probably a good thing that I'm off. I've just been opening up some of my original fic, and sticking my tongue out at it, which isn't a good sign. I really had planned to get back to it. There's a horror story that I was meaning to do about ten years ago, but I have a feeling it's past its prime in my head. There's an sf story about a girl joining a colony ship. The fantasy story I started for NaNo and just hated by the time I really got going. Handful of other things. All crap. Maybe I should write a Harlequin, or some literary novel about poking at belly-button lint. At any rate, I do think I should stop rummaging through what I've got and start fresh. Ideas that haven't sprouted in fifteen years probably aren't going to now. Maybe switching genres entirely would be a good idea.

Feh.

I'll think of some interesting topic to make a real post about later.

I feel a bit...: irritated petulant

If you wrote a literary novel about poking at belly-button lint, I'd read it--sounds hilarious!

Actually, you strike me as a pretty good candidate for a satirist.

Actually, that could work.

Or a Harlequin about romance among the literary novel-gazers!

That really should have read "navel-gazers."

Then again, maybe not.

Oy, I remember the sf one, if that's the one about the interplanetary stewardess who's bored out of her mind. Yeah, actually, you have a point. I can't give you any pointers, though - I never commit to following through on my ideas no matter how good they are. But you seem to be a horror-sf-fantasy type, regardless, and writing realistic fiction won't do you any better, I'm almost certain.

Actually, it's a different one. Equally crappy, but different.

You know, if YOU wrote a Harlequin novel, it would be the first one I'd ever entertain the notion of purchasing or reading. I'd at least be guaranteed a well thought out plot, no gratuitous sex, and interesting, non-stereotypical characters. Give it a shot, just for kicks and giggles. ;) Good luck with new ideas. -Tante

Still, sometimes there's nothing wrong with some good, old-fashioned, gratuitous sex =)

And if we only got it sometimes instead of all the time, it wouldn't be such a relief to get away from it now and then! :p

Thanks, Anna. :)
