3. Rule #1: A mortal may not bind a soul.
This is how short some of my ideas are. No idea what I was thinking of when I jotted this one down
7. You are out walking your dog. It is December, raining, dripping off the trees onto the leaves. You flash you light around at the old stumps and spindly young trees, then up the trunk of a threesome and see…a shadow darting away from the light. Vanishing into darkness. It makes a sound. You have no fucking idea what you just saw.
This was prompted by a real life experience - a very strange sound - which then prompted the idea. I've had this idea before, ie, you see something that shouldn't be and how that would change your outlook.
12. What if you did something that made people hate you but there was a good reason for doing it?Well, I want to know what I did first, and why I did it. What was my motivation for doing something I would be reviled for? Hmm, that IS an interesting question.
And this one was thanks to Liz at Laws of Gravity who poses a weekly what if question.
As you can see, my little idea folder pans out now and again. Anyway, I added to it again, even though I didn't want to, and it's such a fun idea I'm going to be hard pressed to resist, but. I am in revisionland and must stay there until the gate opens. And the gate doesn't open until I finish.
Meanwhile, I've also been distracted by Stranger Things (can't wait for the next season) and effing scrabble. Why the heck do I care about the weekly challenge? I'm not going to win anything. No one is going to pat my back if I complete it. And if I do, then the game is going to up the challenge next time, making it harder to beat. Stupid scrabble.
On a happier note, I spent most of Sunday playing Minecraft with my brother yesterday. He has two gaming computers so we could play cooperatively. I only died once, while we were in a village and I stupidly went outside at night, which is when all the bad creatures come out to eat you. And because we hadn't built ourselves beds yet, I ended up back where I spawned way far away from the home we built. In the dark. It was wicked fun :)
How was your weekend? Do you have a folder for shiny new ideas? Addicted to scrabble?
