Lady of the Day: Aeryn Sun from Farscape — FUCK YEAH FARSCAPE
– – –
– – –
First of all, there are four GIFs of the glorious Aeryn Sun instead of one or two because: 1) She is glorious, 2) You can think of it like there is one GIF for each day this entry supposedly covers, 3) Look at that face, and 4) I fucking love her. Why haven’t you assholes watched Farscape yet? GO WATCH FARSCAPE RIGHT NOW. It’s super weird. It’s got Muppets and sex and the greatest love story in the history of the known universe.
I’m sorry I called you all assholes. I’m in what my mother calls “a mood” right now. Probably why I picked Ms. Sun as my lady avatar today also. I’m feeling feisty and she is the queen of feisty. Why isn’t Claudia Black in more things? I seriously love her.
Also, I’m supposed to be writing about writing.
Bad news: I didn’t write a single word from Wednesday night until Saturday afternoon. I was supposed to be at 16,000 or so words by the end of today. I’m about 6,000 words behind.
Good news: I wrote about 3,500 words this weekend. I finished chapter two and started chapter three, although barely. I call it a win. Jennie’s advice to just spew crap and worry about making it good later is helping as well. (There is a LOT of crap coming out as of right now.) Also, I’m starting to get to the good stuff, and I’m having less issues with the word count because I’ve found a brain workaround. It goes like this: whenever I find myself starting to freak about not meeting the word count and just wanting to quit and go read a book instead, I tell myself FUCK THE WORD COUNT and HAVE FUN WITH YOUR STORY YOU ASSHOLE. See? I even call myself an asshole so shut up it’s equality.
P.S. I really want to start up my Farscape Rewatch again. I got stuck at the best episode of the series because it’s so good I felt I couldn’t do it justice. I think I’m going to suck it up and just write. Maybe in a couple of weeks?
