Hm, my water appears to be shut off. Wish I'd noticed that before I went to the bathroom. *feels unclean* ETA: Neighbor says the laundry room flooded. Lovely.

Anyway, not much else to report today. I'm behind on The Daily Show and Grimm, so, I'm gonna fix that. I'm finally going to watch Ed Wood, which Netflix sent. Yup. Totally going to do those things. And not work on my new fic idea (yes, another). Even though I'm kind of enamored with it and what I really want to do is dive into it just to get the stuff out of my head before I forget it. Curse my inability to write scenes out of order. I've been useless at work- I recently downloaded this game that drains my battery like a starving vampire but it's fabulous for giving me something mindless to do so I can think. I hit the button that fires it up and BAM, I'm wandering off in my own little world. Which is a pretty fun place to be when I'm working through the details of a new plot. Anyway, it's called Dubble and it's your basic upside-down Tetris thing where you shoot these blobby little balls at a descending curtain of more balls and if you get at least three of the same color to touch they burst and you get points. Not having ever seen anyone else play Dubble, I'm pretty sure I'm amazing at it.

So, you know what I noticed? On that fic-writing 30-day meme thing, I'm missing day four and I have no idea how to find it. Uh, whoops. As such, on to day five! 5 –If you have ever had a character try to push their way into a fic, whether your "muse" or not, what did you do about it?

Well, the only thing that comes to mind is a little meme fic I did for [livejournal.com profile] c_quinn forever ago that was supposed to be a random meeting between Simon Tam from Firefly and Rube from Dead Like Me. River totally barged in and.. I pretty much let her. Honestly, she has way more interesting things to say than Simon just in general, but especially to Rube. Once again, [livejournal.com profile] c_quinn, if you want me to try again with another couple characters, I am more than willing.

Otherwise, at least with multi-chapter stuff, I tend not to deviate too far from the basic plot I set out at the beginning. And, I dunno, I think I avoid getting all that many characters involved. Too many working parts to take care of. If you will recall on day one, in a very early piece I entirely forgot about the existence of two not inconsequential characters by the end of the thing. I'd like to avoid doing that again.
