Abstract personal work.
Don’t know if this is what a caffeine crash actually feels like, or if this is my normal low energy level & it just feels more pronounced because it’s so different from how I felt earlier this afternoon?
bluh I planned on meeting Cindy for dinner at Grandma’s & I’m get up and go in a minute b/c Grandma! and dinner! but first I’m gonna whine b/c I’m all warm in a blanket & I don’t want to get up hissss
I love coffee, and it’s a great mood booster for me, but what I hate is that after I’ve had plenty of coffee I have so much energy & drive to do things, and then I can feel the gradual slide over hours into “okay that’s enough of that” on into “so sleeping for 12 hours sounds fantastic”
So I made a little size chart of Dragons of Middle-Earth
I think these are right but if anyone has quotes or anything to indicate something different, send them my way and I’ll fix it.
Be careful of pop culture references. They become dated far too fast, and can take the reader out of the world that you’ve built. It’s best to use them when the genre you’re writing calls for it, and even then it can be a good idea to go for fictionalized versions of the “real” thing (like a fake boy band or magazine).
Be careful of classic literary references. All too often, people use them to boost their own supposed impressiveness. Literary references are great storytelling tools, but be sure they’re really, really relevant (and really, really accurate). [Note: If it’s a character making the reference it can be inaccurate, but only if this is deliberate and generally only if you point it out in some way.]
Be careful of obscure cultural references, like little-known bands or films. For about a decade there this became the easiest (read: most Indie) way of showing that a character was Not Like Other Girls or Not Like Other Guys. As such, it’s been cheapened a bit. Be sure that if you make these references, they really are an important part of a character’s personality.
