violsva: Geoffrey Tennant, offering a skull (have a skull)
My scars are dull. There is nothing interesting about them, and there never was. If they were on my skin instead of my soul they would transcribe a dreary story of five identically unpleasant neverending years. With them scrawled across the inside of my brain I ignore them, so sick of their repetition I barely see them, without any interest in reading them again, again, again, again. Pain past or continuing is the reiterations, the irrelevancies, the circumlocutions, the redundant restatements obfuscating any other sense or meaning. Pain is the least interesting thing about me, and only blocks the rest.

OMG I got TWO Yuletide stories!

La chasse à la renarde (The Fox-Hunt), which is unbelievably beautiful. I can't describe how much I love it. It's just gorgeous, and the language. And very Woolfian.

I feel about Virginia Woolf the way seven year old boys feel about Wayne Gretzky. And this, this is her, it's just amazing.

And A House is not a Home, which is simply sweet. I like Artemis being righteous. It's nice.

Very odd emotionally right now, when writing is going wonderfully but on the other hand I've been laid off.

My head is stuck entirely in Sherlock Holmes canon. It's moderately worrying. I'm having trouble reading anything else. I'm enjoying it, it just feels very strange and obsessive. I think I may have felt like this when I was thirteen and burying myself in Harry Potter because it was better than my life, but I can't really remember how I felt then. I'm sure there's nothing actually wrong with this.

Also, people keep getting shot and it's horrible.

So. Happy things. Street Pianos. Moon Photography.

Recording whether I've written anything each day: very good idea. Provides clear proof I have done something every day. Also motivational.

So. Three Weeks for Dreamwidth is starting nowish, and I am going to use it as an excuse to get over my social anxiety and post stuff. Specifically stuff about Greek tragedies, since I am reasonably confident I know stuff about them. Aren't linguistic placeholders fun?

This is here to remind me.
