New to the Blogroll:
Sci-Fi Ideas – Has anyone else noticed how few sci-fi writers there seem to be on WordPress? This isn’t a WordPress blog, but I digress, the point is I’m glad I found it. :D It’s tailored for sci-fi inspiration, full of art, prompts, contests, etc. I may be trying my hand at Alien August if I can get weird enough!
What I’m Up To:
What the heck, Alabama? I’ve been wearing sunglasses in the rain for days, because it’ll be pouring down in one spot but bright and sunny a few feet away. It’ll be a hot summer afternoon at work, but driving home, there’ll have been an awful storm and I’ll pass through a whole town that’s lost power. Driving through a built-up area with the power out is a surreal experience, I can tell you. It’s not that weird for a house to be dark, but when strip malls or churches have no lights on, or vast swathes of houses don’t, it’s creepy. I guess I’m not usually out and about when power’s off.
I watched about six episodes of Community here and there, and loved them — y’all have been telling me to watch for years, but somehow I got it in my head it was about a suburb or something equally boring. I was not aware that it so perfectly captured the pathos of community college. The six episodes were in random order, though, and I haven’t selected my favorite character yet…
Other than that, just desperately trying to keep up with everything. You know how that goes.
Coming Up This Week:
Like I said, I’m behind, so the schedule may get shuffled. However, I’m thinking on Tuesday I’ll post my preliminary reading list for my senior paper (on human rights and literature in history), and on Thursday I’ll be posting on Doctor Who and Sherlock.
This month’s novel update and Interesting Carictars post(s) will be this Friday and/or next week. I’ve also got some cool stuff coming up related to “strong female characters” that’ll take a week to post, and it may be next week or the week after. Stay tuned!
What’s up with you? :)
