A Cartoon

Tonight was parent conference night so I started my rewrite instead of grading papers while I waited for parents and wept over the disintegration of our political system.

In the meantime, a friend of mine sent me this because it reminded her of me. She nailed it. This is totally me. All the time.

This is also the process by which I come up with a lot of story ideas.

Sometimes on hikes with my friends I figure out the order in which we'd die if this was a horror movie, and who would turn out to be the killer.

    Sometimes, while queueing at the supermarket, I'll think "this is not a very good movie."

  2. Love it! That's why we have to write. We think of things, or imagine things, which most people would say WTF! What are you on? And just occasionally somebody somewhere writes something brilliant which resonates

    OMG, that's so odd. I do something similar all the time, except it's how my characters would take down the room instead of me.

    A long time ago, I realized my plan to take out the room was the same in every instance...get out, lock doors, explode it.


  4. You and Jackie Chan. Calculating the possibilities.

    Good, we need great fight scenes to distract from the news, which has been damn discouraging.

    That is awesome! Love it. I usually envision scenarios in which I could be killed in a freakish manner. Likely too many horror films as a kid. Maybe that's why I prefer comedies as an adult.

  6. That's awesome! I definitely do this sometimes. But usually it's in more character driven scenes. This would be great since I'm not a natural at fight scenes.

  7. Wait... are you implying *everyone* doesn't do that?
    And here I thought I was engaging in normal defensive preparedness.


Please leave a name, even if it's a fake name. And try not to be an asshole.
