I'm not expecting the call you made...  
Writing-fu? Where are you?

I know you had me on a mad writing spree last month and now you're mocking me with your absence...

Ficathon fic.


Other fics.

*opens Word and stares at the blank screen*

whiskyinmind: how is that quarter to already?! I've only written 32 words and they're sh*te
monkey_matt: What, all of them? Isn't that a bit repetitive?
whiskyinmind: different spellings, the occasional merde in there...
monkey_matt: I suppose variety IS the sh*te of life.
whiskyinmind: I have the most random question for you, which has nothing whatsoever to do with fic or writing, but has a lot to do with the fact that [eldest nephew] stood on my toe at the weekend and crushed in part of my boot. What do you call those things that you can put inside shoes to reshape/stretch 'em out?
monkey_matt: Potatoes.
whiskyinmind: I bet you think you're funny, dontcha?
monkey_matt *grins inanely across the room and nods*

(we've now found out what it's called, it's a Shoe Tree apparently)
Current Mood: quixoticflaily

Ah yes, quite a bunch of us, isn't it?unhobbityhobbit on November 1st, 2007 01:19 pm (UTC)
Oh, so you're the one with 32 words! I thought that was a slightly odd number to note down (I've been stalking cruising around the website). That's a bummer.

And it's not a shoehorn? Oh no, that's the thing that helps you get your foot in, isn't it?

32's a good number...

I think it's this office that's screwing me up right now, I'm off to Wench's this evening to annoy her and Doodle, and her kitchen is, for some reason, pretty good at kick starting my writing. So *fingers crossed*

I thought shoehorn too, but nope, that's the thing that goes between your heel and the shoe to help put it on. I also thought a shoe tree was something you hung shoes on, like a tie rack for shoes.

Y'know, there's more than 32 words in this comment - how come I can't do that for fic?! :(

Pretend you're having a conversation! You're telling your life's story to someone and they're really interested and will be horribly, horribly depressed if you don't finish it. They're hanging on your every word.

Or you could be like me and just keep repeating yourself. It's great fun and fills up the word count.

I don't think I've heard of a shoe tree before. Or maybe it's the name of a shop, like Tie Rack is... If it isn't, it probably should be.

Oh yeah, and have a fun weekend in Wench's kitchen hunched over your laptop and maybe celebrating a little bit.

Write the story of the blinking cursor that wouldn't stop blinking.
Then a few inventive death scenes, followed by cake and a random time-travel accident.
Just waffle dude!

Yay for Buffy watching! Yup, just left you a other comment about Laura contacting me.

Awesome - caffeine!!!!

I'm completely loaded down with *stuff* by the way, I decided against the suitcase but I'd have been as well with one!
