So. I have this list of all the things I need to do before I can put my house on the market. Things like paint the bathroom (completed), have the septic pumped (done), and paint the exterior trim (I bought the paint but haven't started the job). There's lots more on the list - I think I have a total of 14 items - but there's also a few check marks against things I've done. Not to mention all the stuff that isn't on the list, like raking the yard, keeping the house cleaner than normal (for practice), and getting my mower fixed so I can mow the lawn. My mantra - I can only do what I can do - is coming in quite handy.
In a way, it's a lot like revisions, or at least, the way I often do revisions. I have a list of all the things that need fixing and I go through them one by one. If I have trouble with one, I move on to another and come back. Just like the house. If it rains, I'll paint something inside (there's plenty of that to be done), and if it doesn't then I can started on the exterior.
Meanwhile, because my creative energy is at an all-time low, I'm allowing myself to do whatever, which turns out to be fanfic based on the John Carpenter movie, They Live. In my story the premise is this: Two Girls. One Big Problem. Aliens.
In the movie, it was two guys, played by Keith David and Roddy Piper. It was a pretty silly movie, especially the longest ever fight scene, so I figure I can have fun with it.
Now. Tell me what you've been doing? Something fun I hope! Ever see They Live?
