writing softcore nerdporn _ heres_luck

relevant or orthoganal song lyric here

via oursin--I don't think she meant this to be a meme, but it was too good to pass up.

The all-pupose archetypal matociquala post:


I worked today. I didn't mean to work today, but I worked today. I climbed a rock. I went for a walk. Here is a picture of my dog. Here is a picture of my cat. I drank some tea. I wrote some words. The story I am working on requires a certain kind of attention. I am working very hard on a story and getting nowhere. I feel like I am spinning my wheels in tapioca here. I have figured out what is wrong with this story and am correcting it. I went for a walk with my dog. I climbed a wall. I saw a movie and here is my opinion of it. This TV show is not very good, but I am watching it anyway, and here is some viewer response. I drank some more tea. Here is a link. Here is another link. The internet is full of things. The wolf is at the door. Here is a picture of my workspace. Here is a picture of my tea. Here is an extended version of something I said in Twitter. Here is my to-do list. I work too much. Here is something I ate. Here is some music I liked. Here is my new cover art. Here is a charity auction of some sort. Here is a book I read and some stuff about what I thought when I read it.

Complaint department: Here is something pithy and cutting
Monkey: I am so your bitch.

Here is something that I perceive to be a false binary. Here are some tactics for writing that may or may not work for you. Here is my foot in my mouth. Here is some minor diversion in my day. Here is a list of things I am working on. Here is my deadline stress. Here is my public accountability.

Here is a meditation on the deeper significance of some pop-culture phenomenon, and a picture of Iggy Pop's chesticles. Here is someplace neat I went, and some discussion of one of the hobbies I don't have enough time for.

(Here is an episode recap of Criminal Minds.)

Here is some illustration of the glamorous life of the writer.

Here is a pithy quote.



927 words today, amounting to the first two pages of two different stories. One is the next contribution to the dragon stories truepenny and I keep writing at each other. The other is a werewolf story for stillsostrange.

At least my brain is doing something to keep itself busy while I figure out how the hell Grail gets from here to the end.

But I only have a hundred pages left to write, and two months to write it in. The pressure is off. I'll f igure it out sooner or later.

Comments

I am perhaps overly amused by this.
Here is a comment linking Iggy Pop to Criminal Minds.
Here is a comment boggling a bit, and then agreeing.
Here is a comment explaining the train of thought, with an appropriate icon.
You snarked yourself quite well. And now, you need not waste further time blogging but can get on with the damned writing. Design a 'fill in the blank' form based on this standard blog entry and voila, instant blogging from Bear.

I'm fairly sure the use of the word "chesticles" outs you as a viewer of Dancing with the Stars, cause that's something I've only ever heard Len Goodman use *g*
Well, I've never heard of Len Goodman, so he must have gotten it from me. *g* (I'm pretty sure it's not unique to me, but I've been using it for years.)
Hee! Perhaps he did ;-) I'd never heard it before I started watching Strictly Come Dancing, for which he is a judge, along with the American version, Dancing with the Stars.
Here is some unsolicited advice -- something you tried and decided didn't work years ago -- that would surely make everything better were you merely to follow it.
ROFLMAO!!!

You win the hemisphere for this.
You aged heathen father's all purpose response. "There, there,it's probably not all that bad. Beat the dog, you will both feel better."
A hearty approval of your post followed by some barely-relevant anecdote.
Here is an italicized quote of something written above.

Followed by a moderately atrocious pun (along with long parenthetical discourses of the "throw it on the wall and see what sticks" variety) vaguely related to the quoted material.

(edited to fix the inevitable spelling mistake)

unnecessarily obscure reference to the song lyric quoted in your subject line

Here is a response to something I misunderstood you to say. I thought my response was witty at the time; I will return to consensus reality at some later date, though not for very long.

Here is a reference to some moment we shared at a convention or a workshop. Here is a heart symbol and/or emoticon.
Here is a comment which contains nothing except a correction of your spelling of "orthogonal".
Here is a comment saying the poster thought the spelling of the word as it appears in the post title was better. ;-)
Here is a generally inappropriate sexual innuendo, thoroughly couched in smileys, so as not to get the author killed.
I'm taking a class on food in American Culture. My book informs me that people in the Northeastern United States drink more tea than other Americans. I, of course, thought of you.
Writers apparently drink a good deal of tea too....
