writing whiskey devil

for satisfied i can never be.

1019 words on "Black is the Color" this morning, and a draft at about four thousand words.

First short story in months.

No idea if it's any good. It may be putting the B back into subtle, if you know what I mean.

But it's done.

The rest of today is Penguicon prep.

That's got to be the worst case of narcissistic personality disorder I've ever seen.

So, I have this hobby/sideline, linked to the Criminal Minds addiction, of playing "name the textbook case this profiling detail came from."

The problem is, unlike Patricia Cornwell, these guys have actually read more criminology texts than I have. I can tell you where to find the backstory on the cup rings from "Blood Hungry," though, or Adrian Bale's bomb design.

Why yes, I have no life.

However, what I have got is another heap of CM meta, just-in-time delivery. Just-in-time, because the next ep, "Doubt," got Earshotted, as it concerns a series of killings on a college campus, and I don't blame CBS for pulling it, for the time being. But it does mean we will wait a while to see same. (I suspect it will air eventually.)

Anyway. I have been meaning to talk about a couple of things with regard to the show. One is leitmotifs, and the other is parent-child relationships.

So, without further ado: Collapse )

*a nonexhaustive survey offers: go, chess, poker, gin, darts, tetris, WoW (yes, really), a Star Trek trivia drinking game, and I am sure I have missed a few.

**the source here is questionable

***And let us talk about the town names, shall we? Golconda, Nevada. North Mammon, Pennsylvania. I am half-suspecting Sodom, Connecticut can't be far out of possibility.
