Accomplished in fiction: Okay. We’ve come to a crossroads, a decider-point in the story where, as the hamsters say, you can get with this or you can get with that. I’m trying to get with that, it’s a bit weird, but I’m trying it out.
Accomplished in life: It rained last night. Talk about weird. I’m going to celebrate.
Other: The story I’m writing, it ain’t no sitting-on-your-hands non-adventure story. We’re exploring our main character’s range of emotion, limited as it is, by throwing trouble at him front, back, side to side. Hence, I’m taking a chance with the ending. But hey, it’s just words, right?

    I don’t like 95% of commercials. They’re annoying. But the hamsters pulling up in a toaster, “or you can get with that”, never fails to make me grin.

  2. Those hamsters are dope.
