I still have new_kate
's notebook and makeup kit from when she came to stay in April. It was an awesome visit, I think I forgot to mention it at the time, and we had grand plans to go and see some opera that have not gone anywhere yet. Yet! Maybe going to see opera is more a winter activity. She also told me, in vast sprawling hours long installements, about the novel that is currently living inside her brain. There is nothing like listening to someone with an amazing imagination telling you a complicated and well thought out story about hot men, religion and mysterious technology. I wallowed in it, verily.
It inspired me to begin to plan out a new project for this summer, which involves concerted novel writing with an aim for publication. I have two loose ideas which need a lot more firming up, but hopefully I'll be ready to start in about a month's time. I've embroiled emungere
in this as well, so we can egg each other on/commiserate/gnash teeth, and she already has something she's been wanting to write for years, so that's worked out well! My Grand Plan, let me show you it.
In other news, I slipped on our garden steps and smashed my arm in a flailing way into the steps. I now have a lovely dull blue bruise that is highlighted with purple speckles and dashes of vibrant yellow. I also have a line-shaped matching bruise on the posterior. Ow.
Final note: I am really confused about who to vote for in the lj elections, but I feel I should vote and add my voice to the throng. From what I've seen of them, jameth
appears to be something of a dick, rm
seems to be extremely sensible, and the others I don't know at all.
