every poet is a cannibal, every artist is a thief

Progress notes for 9 October 2006:

"Upon Deaf Ears"

New Words:  1556
Total Words: 3551
Pages: 19
Deadline: --
Reason for stopping: DRAFT! Which may be broken. And needs a decent title. And is all kind of not as emotionally pointy as it needs to be.

Stimulants:  Dogfish Head IPA
Exercise: none. I have had enough exercise.
Mammalian assistance: Mebd is ignoring me to sleep on the bed.
Mail: nomail

Today's words Word don't know: Zeppelinesque, bassline, Soho, wankers, très, butch, houngan, Norns, Surtur, fuckers, zine, pizzle, endoscopy,
Words I'm surprised Word do know: n/a

Mean Things: scathing reviews, global irrelevance
Tyop du Jour: insticipation
Darling du jour: It's unwise to provoke him. But sometimes irresistible.
Jury-rigging: Did I mention that this whole thing is a teetering edifice of nontraditional, nonlinear narrative that may or may not work?

Also, making up titles for glam rock albums is fun. I may be turning into Grant Morrison, though.

There's always one more quirk in the character: The quirks are more or less the plot, at this point.
Other writing-related work: read a story for leahbobet.
Books in progress: I should finish Scandinavian Folk Belief and Legend.
The Internet is full of Things: via matt_arnold, Andart offers Warning Signs for Tomorrow.

A sampler:


Go read the site for the rest.

The glamour!: I need a nap
