Let's take a moment

We are about to see probably one of the biggest storms in a long time hit the East Coast. Those of you who are crazy enough to be up this late reading my post, please take a minute and pray for those folks over there. I'm afraid that they're going to need it.

May God bless them!

Yes I know it's been since August, so all I can say is tell you what I told people over at "Mnemosyne"


But it's justified. Two and half jobs plus a truck load of school, honestly I am surprised that it's taken me this long to admit that I'm going mad. But aside from that, here's a little something that I put together for my readers at "Mnemosyne". The semester's almost over, and so is work, so I should have bucket-loads of time then to post and write here.

The Sherlock Holmes Complex

So I have always found music to be very inspiring when I write, and I have always believed that the mood of the scene that I'm working on is affected by the feel of the song that I am listening to. And now I am going through a Sherlock Holmes phase. I hadn't seen the movie, but my Pandora station started to play the background music and I was hooked. It was just so different.

Needless to say I went and watched the movie. But now all of my characters have either a Sherlock Holmes or Watson feel. And while I love these two characters (don't get me wrong), I really need my K'mar to be self-absorbed in a rather oblivious and charming way, not pot-enhanced and arrogant like Holmes, and Watson is much too sensible to be a prototype for Nolan. So maybe I should go back to listening to "Harry Potter" and "Lord of the Rings".

I can easily avoid writing about rings and quidditch.

(Did I ever tell you that K'mar was a redhead?) 


Is there a particular thing that inspires your muse? If so I'd love to hear about it!

P.S I grew up on Sherlock Holmes (the books), and a third movie might come out. So you will hear about this again. 


and no that is not a threat.


it is simply a statement of fact. 


you'll just have to live with it.
