Beka talked like an alien, and it was BRILLIANT

I'm Baaaaaack

So, let's pretend I didn't disappear for a year and a half. Please.

Aubrey is starting to really work on some of her stuff again, and that plus seanan_mcguire being amazing and having the second Newsflesh book come out has made me really want to crack down and work on my writing.

Unfortunately, I am low on ideas. The Morani Chronicles (aka Tarotverse) is an interesting concept that I may want to explore or revisit one day, but I really can't get myself interested enough in the characters or the story I had planned. November Skies has never been much other than a vague sense of feeling, and a character. Courser, which I never discussed here, never really got a chance to get off the ground before I lost all my files on it when my old laptop stopped turning on, and I really don't have the interest to rebuild it all.

So I'm stuck with no real inspiration, no characters, a deep love of Newsflesh and a knowledge I'll never write anything quite that amazing, and a lot of frustration.

And a ukulele.

Anyway, I'm trying to discover a character by putting together a playlist, which kicked itself off with Britney Spears' "Womanizer" and Queen's "Fat Bottomed Girls", so I'm not sure how this is going to go. I hold out hope that it will be fruitful, and then I can work on applying Murphy's Law to everything that happened to him/her. (I think it's a her. Her name may be either Hannelore or Sian.)

Let's hope I actually keep up with this journal this time, eh?
