You know, whenever I’m stifled, sometimes it helps to view other creative works. Books, movies, anime… it gets my mind turning. The gears turning, rather.
Tonight I watched all episodes of Hand Maid May that tdj kindly gave me. I really enjoyed it; it’s a series with a good heart, even if the jokes sometimes go wild or go hentai. Kind of like South Park in that respect.
I started thinking about Mallory, and what he is, what he stands for. And decided 2 minutes after turning out the light to go to bed that maybe I’ll strike while the iron is hot and the clock is ticking rather than put it off to the next day, when I might not be in the mood. I grabbed the CD I always listened to back when I was writing FWLS at 4 in the morning in the dark… Pearl Jam’s “Ten”. And I went to work.
The end result? Unreal Estate 03.
It’s more a matter of overcoming my fear of writing. Once I start, I find it all comes along just fine. If I can get myself to start. Enjoy, and post comments.
