I've been wanting to watch the Lord of the Rings again... but Return of the King is going to be SO WEIRD after Fringe.

I've been cruising the LOTR section of the pit lately because there's lots of good sporking material there, and it's largely because of the inordinate number of marysues in the fandom. But then I had a thought: wouldn't it be delightfully mad to have some crazed psychopathic teenage girl stalk the Fellowship and murder them one by one in their sleep?

Okay. So about four years ago I started writing this Lord of the Rings story, inspired partly by the class I took that summer, about what might have happened if Boromir actually did get the Ring from Frodo. I can't remember when I actually last worked on it, but I've been stuck for a while. A few months ago (or maybe a year; I can't really tell) I decided, 'the hell with it' and thought I was done. Of course, now the damn thing is pestering me because I had nearly 10,000 words and to quit now would, as a writer, piss me off. The problem now is that I want to make the rest of the story as logical as possible, which is not easy.

Damn you, fic.

Ah well, at least it's practice.

I've struck upon a whim to work on my writing again! I do wish it hadn't come at such an inconvenient time, right in the middle of a very long book series and less than a month before I head off to school. I very nearly sat down to watch the entire extended Lord of the Rings trilogy for inspiration, but decided that was a task for winter. In summer I either put them on to listen to while working on maps, or watch them one per night. But I hate just watching one of them, because really the whole thing is one single story. Albeit a very long one. Anyway, at this point I'm still jotting notes in my Moleskine and figuring out names and stuff. It's slow-going stuff even when I'm working on it every day. I can't wait until I'm busy again, because I'll probably work on it more. It's true what they say about getting more done when you have more to do. I think I'm getting carpal tunnel.

One of the books I ordered came in the mail this morning. (Yay!) Three weeks after I ordered it. The other had better not be far behind, because tomorrow's the last day of the delivery window and I want my book, dammit. I know I'm driving the rest of my family nuts about it because my mom cheered when I brought in the package this morning. This guy is so not getting positive feedback.

I just danced to my favorite song on the radio. Life is good today.

damn hot

Nobody told me it was going to be 100 degrees today! I got my hair cut this morning and it seems like it was just in time for the hot weather. It's awfully short; some might use the term "lesbian." But it feels great, and it will grow out a bit in a couple of weeks anyway.

I've started reading The Lord of the Rings again at the rate of about five pages a day. At that pace I should finish sometime in January.

Season two of Venture Bros. starts tomorrow and I'm very much looking forward to it. I just hope they bring back Hank and Dean.

Sam comes home in two weeks!
