Since I've been unable to write anything recently, I thought I'd try my hand at this meme
. You are supposed to let your music player randomly select songs for you and write a drabble for each song while that song is playing. Once the song is finished, you must stop writing. I can't do it. My problem isn't so much a lack of inspiration (though that is certainly there), it is more due to the fact that I can't write drabbles for squat. I feel like I need to explain, continue, elaborate. I can't just write a scene without explanation of how I got to the scene or some sort of conclusion (even if it is half-assed). This is probably why I rarely read drabbles. I have nothing against them, and I don't mind others writing them, but I'm one of those people who usually skips over then in favor of that next fic which has eight thousand words. Eight thousand
delicious words. Something to sink my teeth into as a reader. Drabbles always leave me wanting more, and then I get sad because I can't click the next button for the conclusion.
Maybe this means I just can't live in the moment. I want to know the past and the future. I want plans. Plans
. Oh god, how I love you, plans.
So, yeah... no writing for me. Although, I've been thinking about writing Draco/Hermione just to get this monkey off my back. I could even write it canon without too much difficulty (i.e. I wouldn't have to raise someone from the dead). This is keeping in mind that I've completely forgotten about the epilogue to DH. So, if you're a stickler, it would be canon minus the epilogue. We don't need no stinkin' babies.
Jason and I are watching Planetes
, an anime series from a few years ago. It's good, but it just hasn't clicked with me. He loves it. I'm sad that there aren't any yummy characters for me to watch. Because I'm that
shallow. In all seriousness, though, it is a very good program and I'd recommend it to anyone interested in a more realistic view of space exploration in the next hundred years. But no pretty boys. Sorry.
