Set Brains to "Stun"

Interesting that nobody's commented on the most recent Fictionlet. mammallamadevil seemed to think that everybody's stunned; my own theory is that either A) like Brigid, nobody can think of anything to say that doesn't sound awkward, or B) I've been so dull to read lately that people are just gliding over my posts. That's okay -- if it's A, then I'll take that as a compliment, and if it's B, then I don't blame them. :)

Spent a nice relaxing evening rating things on Netflix, to see what if any effect it would have on my recommendations. Totally unproductive, but just exactly the kind of "turn your brain off so your mind can work" activity I've needed in a big way lately.

I've also been reading On Writing by Stephen King since Monday; I'm about 3/4 of the way through it now. It's a mixed bag, but overall I'm enjoying it. If nothing else, it's interesting to hear the work habits of one of the most popular writers EVAR from their own, er, keyboard. It's also fun to read what he likes and dislikes (likes: Harry Potter; dislikes: Bridges of Madison County).

I'm not quite ready to pick up the blue pencil again yet. I expect that to come over the weekend. Right now I'm concentrating on my health (physical and mental) first.

A. Definitely A. There isn't a good way to respond to that sort of story.

FWIW, I gave up on my ficlets 'cause I wasn't getting feedback. That and I didn't like where I was going.

Of course it was A. I found it to be quite dramatic; in fact, I read it in the morning before I went to work. Hours later, when we got quiet, I found myself still thinking about it. Now that is the mark of an effective piece of fiction!

I didn't respond because it wasn't posted when I left for work. Not that there really is much of a response that works.

I like B&G. Very neat interaction, but your last one caused an "A" in my mind.

What do you say? What can you say? How do you say it?

The only thing that came to my mind was either "Oof" or "Ouch".

C) Nothing to say that wouldn't start an argument.
