I think even a non-Whovian can get the sentiment here. I don’t have the patience to explain who the robots are, just imagine them with robot voices going “ANNOY ANNOY ANNOY” over and over again, and you’ve got all the info you need.
Did I mention I’m annoyed today? I have so much I want to get done today, but… how do I even explain this? Let’s just say that if any strange human being is expected to enter the house, it’s not just Elsie who freaks out. Only my family doesn’t (unfortunately) hide under the furniture. The FREAKING REBUILD THE FREAKING HOUSE. No, seriously. The freaking CABLE GUY (Not the QUEEN OF FREAKING ENGLAND!) is coming tomorrow, and we’ve got furniture moving, a door being re-sanded, carpets being shampooed, and gods only know what else going on upstairs. The noise, the constant, “Heather, can you came here for a minute?” Is driving me NUTS. Plus, they decided to take down the nice, handy DVD rack in the living room because “it doesn’t belong there.” Besides now having dozens of DVD’s with no home, I’m also wondering — how does a DVD rack NOT belong in the living room next to the freaking TV? ARRRRGH.
Okay, I’m better now. Getting a little work done, and listening to the obscene grunting of tennis players is a nice distraction. *G* I want to get this freelance piece done so I can get back to THE FICTION.
I can’t just talk about The Valkyrie & The Vampire (TVTV) anymore, because last night I sort of spontaneously wrote most of the first chapter of what will be a shorti-sh novella. I have no idea where the urge came from, but I’ve been wanting to write a story about werewolves in my beloved Adirondack mountains for a long time,so with that in mind… and, okay, a splash of hot pictures of Joe Manangiello might have inspired me a BIT. But the character in the story is half-Native American (Mohawk, since that’s the tribe most represented in the area where I live. They’re Akwesane, specifically.) But I’m trying to create a different culture altogether, since the hero is as much effected by his Werewolf-ness as his half-native heritage. I don’t know how it will play out, but I am doing my research and trying to be sensitive and not toss around my white privilege just to write some hot porn. But:
I mean, if you write erotica, how can you not make him a star in your fiction sooner or later? Anyway, the working title is Adirondack Shift, and I’m going for some super spicy erotica on this one. Because *points back up to Joe again* THE YUM, YO!
I’ve kind of been having a fun pacing day. The freelance piece I’m writing (one iPhone security) is fairly simple, so I’ve been switching back and forth between writing that, working on Adirondack Shift, and TVTV. It’s like a fun cycle of writing!
Well, work is finally done. Now I’m going to write some Adirondack Shift, and do some character work for TVTV. Wheee! Oh, and there’s hummus, so you know it’s going to be a good night!
And True Blood tomorrow! SQUEE! OH! And new cable tomorrow! DOUBLE SQUEE! *dances*
