writing is such a damn difficult bug to be bitten by.

I'd forgotten how often we saw Magritte

writing is such a damn difficult bug to be bitten by.

  • MUSH.

    Yes, I'm being facetious. MUSHing completely kills my desire to write, which probably explains why I nearly vomited up a novel when I stopped RPing.
    • Yeah, me neither. Just wipes it completely away.

      Of course, I have my little pet theory about MUSHing - that people who do it end up being really good at dialogue...
      • I've noticed that myself: dialogue and characterisation get honed very sharp very fast.

        Mind you, plotting on the other hand...
    • Yah. Plotting's an entirely different ball game.

      Shame, too. But I feel some comfort knowing that all those years furiously typing out poses long past my bedtime has been put to some use these days.

      • You're right. It's terribly sad, but right. Character? I'll give you character! Dialogue? No problem! Plot?

        Um....

        Um....

        It would just be easier if everyone was sitting in a cafe.
        • ...or easier if the characters could go OOC for a bit and figure things out, then get back into character.


          Man. I could see an entire collection under 'What if short stories were all written by MUSHers?' :)
          • They'd be Tad Williams novels or Jim Butcher novels, to go from historical precedent.
    • Dialog was always my strong point, even as a kid, long before MUSH. I think it's helping my descriptions though.
  • Can you hear that hysterical-tinged laugh from several blocks away?
  • Beats travel.

    Well, cheaper, anyhow.
  • You scanned that dvd cover the moment you got home, didn't you? :)
    • nope- I dug it up online after watching the making-of feature and realizing that yes, this would be a good icon for things writerly (if I ever actually write again).
  • Seriously though, the bug's been taking little nibbles at me lately as well, I just wish it would bite hard enough to leave a concrete idea.
  • You know...
    penicillin, penicillin, penicillin!
  • Pull yourself together, Bill... I've got new orders for you - from Control.

    Hey do me a favor and rub a little of that on my lips, wouldja?
    • I'm thinking that if I ever publish a novel, the dedicatory quotation will be 'homosexuality is the best all-around cover an agent could ever have'.
