It is raining here in Starkvegas. Again. After the wettest September on record (22 straight days of rain), we got 5 days of sun (long enough to bushhog the yard), and now more rain. The dogs are looking at me imploringly “Mama, make it stop!” The munchie bones I got them assuaged the boredom for about 5 minutes (long enough for me to put away the groceries). Now they’re laying on the sofa and floor respectively, heads on paws looking mournful again.
Daisy is totally staring at me. It’s a little creepy.
Hubs is off to band practice, leaving me quiet time I must take advantage of to write my words for the day. I spent the morning working on a band website, Facebook fan page, twitter page, and event calender because I am the social media guru of the household. It’s not bad for a couple of hours’ worth of effort. It’s all kind of bare because, of course, it’s new. The guys aren’t exactly luddites, but they all got kinda blank looks when I was explaining the idea of this going viral. Or maybe that was just alarm at the idea of success… Oh the pressure. Not that I expect any of you are anywhere NEAR us in Starkville, MS, but if you are, come on out this Saturday night for their first show! 9:30 at Fat Rabbits! /shameless plug
Anyway, after yesterday’s post on locus of control, it occurred to me that I often think about fiction in relation to psychology. It’s a side effect of the assorted evil day jobs. While I’m writing lectures on one thing or another, I’ll think “Oh, that would make an interesting post,” but most of the time I never get around to writing it. I was thinking, though, that it might be interesting to pursue a series on psychology and writing/fiction/characters. A couple of you expressed interested yesterday, so I thought I’d see if there was a broader appeal (enough to boot me into actual organized action). And if you are interested in something like this, is there a particular focus you’d like to see?
