Yet another reminder to go listen to the song “Skullcrusher Mountain” over at Jonathon Coulton’s site. It’s here. Third song down. Click the little play button. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, go back a few posts and catch up.
I should have a first draft done by tonight. This is probably the most fun I’ve had yet writing a story. There’s a world of difference between creating your own reality and borrowing someone else’s and playing with it, tweaking things here and there, to come up with a slightly new story. I can see why nobody in Hollywood ever bothers creating anything new. Plus it was rather entertaining coming up with names for a golden submarine (that always sounds vaguely pornographic whenever I type it). I’m not completely thrilled with my current choice, but the process on the whole had me chuckling at my desk.
Anyway, I’m going to go back to work.
