Do you know what it means when you look down at your bare foot and wonder why there is an empty banana peel draped carefully across it? When the plastic 20-oz bottle of Coca-Cola on the desk in front of you has only about 3/4 of an inch of liquid left in it, and you're the only person in the house? When somehow the Metallica cd you remember just cranking up a moment or two ago now sounds an awful lot like Rob Thomas? When that apricot-scented votive you picked up on clearance for a quarter last night is now a puddle of peachy wax in your favorite votive holder?

It means you're Hamlette, the Dame, and you've just gotten so involved in the story you were writing, you lost track of a couple hours of your life.

  1. Yay for losing time to writing!! Most excellent! And would you believe I actually got a C! Halloween story idea and managed to condense it so I might actually be able to make it a short story and not an entire episode? Except it's a very very dark Halloween story.

  2. Ooooooooooh, a very very dark Halloween "C!" story? Excellent! Can't wait to read it!

    Last year we had a Halloween challenge over on the "C!" fanfic-writers list, and some really fun things resulted. And some pretty creepy ones too...

    I can't seem to write scary. It's even harder for me than funny. I can only write scary if it's gonna be silly-scary...weird, huh?

Agree or disagree? That is the question...
