I got a slashy dream last night. That hasn't happened for years.
The gay movie marathons I've been having lately are definitely responsible for that. Note: By marathon, I mean that I've been watching entire movies in one sitting. I haven't done that since who knows when. A year, maybe. I don't know if anyone here has Netflix, but their Instant movie feature is one of the most awesome things ever. No need to watch for a DVD to come in the mail, no need to rail at the player when the scratched DVD gets stuck and won't function like happened just ten minutes ago. Just instant goodness. I sound like the ad. By the way, His Secret Life
*there's a threesome in this one, by the way) and Walk on Water
are excellent. The downside to all this is that now I have a new plotbunny running around my head, courtesy of the dream, that I don't know what to do with. Thank you, brain.
For some strange reason, a scale has appeared in the bathroom in a very prominent location that forces me to see if every time I go in, so now I can't do my business without feeling guilty about not exercising. *face palm* We may need to have a conversation about this. This is really not good for anyone's self esteem.
Does anyone know how many words is a 300 page novel, give or take? I keep being asked how many pages I have written of my novel and I notice that I don't count pages. Essay pages are the only pages I've ever counted, which got confusing in London, because over there it's words they count, so no matter what system I use someone is going to stare at me in confusion. It's like Fahrenheit vs. Celsius. I've got at least 106 pages by now. It feels like much less, probably because I'm still just getting started. It's a lot of story! There's a tiny sliver of a novel sitting on the shelf, barely 156 pages and I stare at it wondering how do you write a novel that tiny? If I were to write a short story, that would probably be the size of it.
I'm thinking, if I keep at my pace of 3,000 words a day, give or take, I can get 90,000 more within a month. Why am I suspecting that even if I do that, I will not be done with this novel by then?
