I want to amuse you.  
If you shot your pistols at me, I'd try to dance. Thank god guns can't penetrate the virtual space of the Internet. There's already too much penetration. I object to it. All that throbbing, moist, moaning penetration. It's just so sick sick sick, incredibly sick, and so distracting through these thin walls.

But really, I'm boring and tired. At work today, I worked. I felt relieved to be getting stuff done. It wasn't the most productive day *ever*, but it was about 1000% more productive than I've been lately. Though if you multiply zero by 1000%--no, screw math.

Brain is tired. Because I can't make words do creative things, my new writing technique will simply be to pick random words from the dictionary and string them together. This, then, is an excerpt from the next chapter of J/V:

"Headwater," minicab synkaryon. "Green pepper?"

Hooligan sewing circle, repeal pheasant phlebitis--levant arroyo. Cestus flagman, likewise, lily-livered, matzo volva vomer. "Starlit star-nosed mole, macrophyte magdalen." Loupe lubricity hogweed. "Fuller's earth," electrokinetics elbow grease.

"Moa mizzenmast," Urbanism sclerotia.

"Prismatic forelock housewifely!" Jess millet my ordination. "Pulvinus puma puff adder!"

Monoacid exaggerate evening dress.

I know you're on tenterhooks. I promise to have more of that really soon.

In other news, I decided that this icon was too solemn to be my default icon. I've switched back to the usual. I've had merely a brief fling with Potter, something that legions of others can also claim, so I can't even pretend I'm special. But he's pretty, so I'll be taking him out now and then.

Jess millet my ordination.
That sounds kinda dirty.

Having just sent the latest chapter of Victorian Vampires at Sea to my beta, bleeding slightly from my ears and nostrils with the effort of making words do anything at all I want them to, your technique seems a valid approach to the whole writing thing.

Julia, sighing and going back to read random chapters from "The Mission"

I want to read more of this. What happens with the green peppers?

And go you with the maths and the being productive and your dancing skills.

*mails you bullet to make you dance some more*

Prismatic forelock housewifely evening dress sounds like something Jack and Vaughn have to get up to at some deeply deeply fetish-y evening, involving much tugging of the forelock and maybe Jack...in sequins???
Gasp! Shock!

We can only hope...

I confess, I am relieved to see Elijah back as your default. I like him. He is slightlty mysterious.

About the J/V -- I'm trying to remember the timeline. As much fun as we've been having with them in this phase of the mission, won't it be time soon for the actual undercover thing to start? Ooh, what if it gets started early? What if they get recruited because Sark is a busy little bee spreading rumors about Vaughn and Jack. Hmm. I guess someth8ing more explosive needs to happen first.

Just me, rambling on. 'Night.

And let's pretend that I can type, sheesh.

Monoacid exaggerate evening dress.

Doesn't it always? I know it's a constant problem for me.

Loupe lubricity? Woof.

I was thinking. I'm re-reading (again) some (OK, ALL) of the j/v fic you've already written. Maybe if you read over what you've already written it might help you get in the mindset of the characters voices in your head and what directions you want to send them in. I'm not really a writer, so my suggestion could be crap, but I thought I'd share it anyway :)

That's a good suggestion! I should maybe rewatch some eps too. :)
Neuroses on Paradesypher798 on June 28th, 2005 07:18 pm (UTC)
Yay! I'm helping I'm part of the solution.

What a nice change :)

"Prismatic forelock housewifely!" Jess millet my ordination. "Pulvinus puma puff adder!"

That really sealed the deal for me. It just captures the voices, the moment so well. How DO you do it?

Leave it to you to make everybody go SQUEE even when you're picking words out of the dictionary. That's just.. crazy good.
