So, I mentioned in my FFT post that I was planning a new on-going project, just to kill time and keep my brain from exploding. I love my WiP, and writing Z, Gage, and Periss is hilarious and amazing, but I’ve been getting the itch for something new. I do that so often, it’s retarded. I have fiction ADD. I think I need a support group.
Anyway, I’ve decided on a fantasy theme, a blend of modern America and kind of an Alexander the Great-era Middle East. I don’t know quite how I’m going to pull it off yet, but I’m working on it.
And names. I used to love naming characters, now I friggin’ hate it. It was my favorite part, and somehow it’s gotten to be a part of the process that makes me beat my head against my desk. I have three characters that need names, and I’m dreading it.
I do have a basic plot outline, though. I’ll flesh it out a little more tomorrow, and I’ll steal a little freedom from my main WiP for awhile.
On a weird side note… everyone in my state is a jerk. I read things about other people, and their experiences on their blogs or Facebook accounts, or… you know, whatever… and I’m like “WOW, that would not fly in Massachusetts!” People are such raging douche bags here. I mean, I’m an asshole to the core. No joke. But I SMILE at people in public, because it’s a courteous thing to do. I hold doors for people, because I know I feel all “Kit SMASH!” when I’m inches behind someone and a door shuts in my face.
Common. Courtesy. Seriously. Who raised these people?
There’s a time and a place to be an asshole. It’s usually with my friends… who are equally brutal, sarcastic, and all-around-dicks. We mesh well. But I can conduct myself in public! Why can’t the rest of the people in this Hell-washed state?
Pft. Rant over. Had to get that out of my system. Thanks. <3
***Also, to clarify, I don’t think I’m better than anyone. The opposite is actually true. I can genuinely behave like a bad person, and I know that most people are NOT bad people. Why do they act like they are? That’s all I’m getting at.***
