random bits of my lazy sunday

Posted by Westenra on October 12, 2008

Wrote almost 2000 words yesterday in one of my WIPs. I do love my characters when they behave the way they are supposed to and surprise me, at the same time.

I impulse-pierced my snug a couple of weeks ago–for those who don’t know, it’s an ear piercing, a big chunk of cartilage kinda in the back. But now I’m regretting it. I mean, I’ve been regretting it; never have I had a piercing hurt this much. My body usually takes really well to piercings, so the swelling and pain associated with this one has been surprising and unwelcome. But more than that I just don’t think I like the way it looks. I made the mistake of getting it in the same ear as my anti-tragus (er, another cartilage piercing, closer to the front), and they really just don’t look good together. I’ve been told that it looks “fine,” but it bothers me. However, since I’ve gone to all the trouble and pain so far, I feel like I should just leave it in. But–argh. Ugh. What to do, what to do.

This is why I will probably never get a tattoo.

I’ve been using the OpenID thingummy to comment on people’s blogger blogs, but, maybe I don’t understand how this is supposed to work, but it keeps posting me as “womaninwhite” because that is my url, even though my NAME is Westenra. sooo. bah humbug to that. So if anyone’s confused about who I am, that’s what’s going on.

The cat has gotten into the catnip again. Oh dear.

    “I do love my characters when they behave the way they are supposed to and surprise me, at the same time.” —> I know the feeling! Sometimes I plan for the character to be a certain way, but then towards the end he/she decides to go off in a completely different direction. It’s alive!

    I love it when my characters surprise me – it’s like, where did that come from because it works! :0) Good luck with the writing!
