Yes, I’ve dipped that far.
My reservoir of blog topics is dangerously low. I’ve got nowhere to run, folks. Without posting fiction on this blog anymore, which wouldn’t help me right now anyway, I’d have to do memes to occupy this space.
I’ve been pretty good at keeping my content fresh, my updates regular, and my comments replied to. But at this point, I got nothing for tomorrow. So unless I have a great nightmare, I guess I’m down to telling you about conversations I’ve had with people on Twitter or doing memes.
I hate memes. They’re the tools of the lazy blogger.
And I’m gettin’ mighty lazy.
I had to run to the library today to return some movies, and while I was there, my love rattled off a list of horror classics I have in a book. I think I found three of them in our library. Three. Richard Matheson’s I Am Legend, which is about a vampire pandemic, and Ira Levin’s Son of Rosemary and Sliver, but not the recommended classic Rosemary’s Baby. I ask you – no Rosemary’s Baby? Whiskey TANGO foxtrot, y’all?? They had some William Peter Blatty, I’m sure, but I’m not in the mood to deal with The Exorcist at the moment, so I didn’t look. They had some King, and some Koontz, but I’m looking for different stuff, so I didn’t look for them.
What else? Hm. I’ve never read an Elmore Leonard novel, either, and I hear tell you can’t write good dialog without learning from master Elmore. Anyone got any good recommendations from him? I’ve tried more than once to find Harlan Ellison there too. Nothing. Not one.
I finished up the kiriban prize too. No, I didn’t meet my goal of 1,000 words or more for each day (Friday, Saturday and Sunday) to which I’d committed on my deviantART page, but I did write 1,000 words or more every day I wrote something. I wonder what would happen if I just committed to writing 2,000 words a day no matter what? Even if they’re just words for a writing exercise? What would happen? What’d be the worst thing that COULD happen?
So … any big plans for the weekend?
God bless, y’all.
(I warned you.)
