Snagged from [ profile] felisblanco. This is one of the most fun memes I've done in awhile, and it was very acurate. Especially the part were it mentioned how bored I'd be on a beach.

Okay I'm going to try and start a meme. Well sort of. I got this idea from a WIRED article a friend sent me.

"Hemingway once wrote a story in just six words ("For sale: baby shoes, never worn.") and is said to have called it his best work. So we asked sci-fi, fantasy, and horror writers from the realms of books, TV, movies, and games to take a shot themselves."

So the meme? Try it yourself, write a story in six words. Here are my attempts. (And why don't I have an "Out for a walk bitch" icon, it would be perfect for this)

six word spuffy )

And what has this exercise taught me? Maybe "Save the cheerleader. Save the world." Isn't so lame after all.

Writing Meme )

In other writing news. I did do a lot writing yesterday, but sadly it wasn't on any of my current WIPs, at least none of the ones you know about. Instead I went back and looked at a story I started after the convention in Houston, and I absolutely loved what I'd written, and wanted to write more.

I'm not sure what to do since I don't want to start putting up another WIP. On the other hand part of the problem I've been having writing Spuffy lately has to do with the fact that right now I'm bored writing a young Buffy, and this story takes place 5 years after Chosen, so she's much more adult, and much more interesting to me right now. I'm hoping that working on this story will help me fall back in love with Buffy. We'll see.

Yuck meme

Yes, I'm posting again. It's just that kind of day. Actually, it's been a really weird day. I started out lazy, then got motivated and actually got everything I wanted to do today done. But then an hour or so ago I just randomly felt sad. I have no idea why, so I guess maybe this meme fit my odd mood swing somehow.

Anyway, I snagged it from [ profile] _jealousy_ and had to try hard not to use some of the same answers as her.

FRUIT: I don't think there is a fruit I don't like.
FOOD: Chinese
CANDY: I don't like it when they put stuff in the chocolate. Leave the poor chocolate alone.
BEVERAGE: Ice tea or coffee. Both should be hot
COLOR: Orange
TOWN/CITY: Pensicola Florida
TV SHOW: American Idol. It's not that I'm against the idea, I just wish I didn't have to hear about it so much.
SEASON: Summer, it's just sort of bland and way too hot. (And I moved to Southern California why?)
WHAT'S THE MOST ANNOYING HABIT IN OTHERS?: People who let every little thing bother them and throw a big fit about insignificant things.
WHAT IS YOUR WORST HABIT?: I'm a slob. I mean, I'm really a slob.
WHAT FASHION TREND (PAST OR PRESENT): I don't really pay attention to trends, but I don't like shorts. I know, it sounds odd, but something about shorts bothers me. I never wear them, I always feel kind of naked, which is weird cause I'll wear skirts shorter than the shorts I've bought in the past.
WORST POPULAR SONG (PAST OR PRESENT): I'm a Genie in a Bottle or whatever that Brittney Spears song is called.
WORST PART OF YOUR JOB: Getting told by a customer that their going to tip me less because of the owner's prices.
WORST PICKUP LINE YOU'VE GOTTEN: Does getting offered a hundred dollars count as a pick up line?
WORST THING ABOUT HIGH SCHOOL: The feeling that you could be out starting your life, but instead you're listening to adults who are dumber than you teach you stuff you already know. Wow, that sounds bratty. I'm obviously still in touch with my inner teenager.

And now that I've finished that meme, I'm thinking maybe I shouldn't tell you guys all that stuff, because I sound rather uptight, and I'm really a laid back person. Oh well, too late now ;)

Here's a meme I got from [ profile] lawyergirl15 who gave me the letter 'M'

Here's how it works:

Comment on this entry that you'd like to play, and I will give you a letter. Write ten words beginning with that letter in your journal, including an explanation what the word means to you and why, and then pass out letters to those who want to play along.
