Mistress Marilyn's POV

Sometimes I think I do so much fanfic research, it's hard to get my head back into the present. It's like being back in school in a way. Tonight I forced myself to sit through two episodes of Wild West Tech, mostly just for the flavor of the thing. (I *love* Keith Carradine as the host. He's the highlight of the whole thing.)

I spent most of yesterday in the Old West, researching timelines and designing a crossover story with 3:10 to Yuma and Tombstone. Then I wrote like mad, kind of obsessed, until around 3:00am. I was pretty pleased with the result, although the thing needs a lot of 'smoothing,' to say the least.

And I really want to get back to Purvis and J. Edgar Hoover, but that will come when it comes, I guess. I've now ended up with a good start on these two western stories I've been working on. And I'm even thinking of letting NaNo be about Zee James . . .

At least it's a nice escape from moving timelines and phone systems. Today was UNfun in the extreme. Not to mention it's turned cold and rainy. And Charlie is a real downer, which isn't her fault, but still . . .

It is what it is as I often say . . . (when I'm not saying Whatever).

It is what it is now that's the phrase.

That crossover sounds interesting. So Jayee won't put on a dress this Halloween, but that's ok

May the sun shine on tomorrow!

Hmmm . . . I *need* to write something Halloween-ish for the challenge at guns_fedoras, but I just haven't quite gotten to it. Still . . .

At least Marilyn you turn out very good fiction. And I love it that you do research for your stories.

I find myself caught somewhere back in time a lot,lol, by that I mean I read a lot concerning ancient history. One would think I could just spill out dates, names, and events like breathing. Of course I know more than the average person.

BTW I'm always telling Debbie what an excellent writer you are.

Thanks so much, Kyra. I have to say I'm feeling like my writing is getting worse, not better. It's certainly getting harder. Not sure why. I think maybe I try too hard. I need to just let it flow and say 'what the hell,' but I don't seem able to.

Thanks for telling Debbie I'm an excellent writer.

(Isn't it cool that Charlie got her story recognized at Writer's Digest? Very exciting!)

I know for certain one can try to hard, and it ends up harming creative ability, also it can turn into anxiety.

I have always thought that you, and Charlie, have a lot of talent for writing.

It seems the more we want something the more we can become twisted up about it. It's just the artist in you that makes you feel the way you're feeling right now. Lol, I'm around people like that all the time. Me and Deb laugh about it. We understand. Just join the group Marilyn.

And it's wonderful about Charlie, very cool.

And Charlie is a real downer, which isn't her fault, but still . . .

I'm really sorry about that. I know I've been a total pain while I've been sick. That's got to make it difficult to come home after a hard day at work...

I totally think you should write about Zee for NaNo. I still LOVE that idea. And I love all the research you do on your fanfic (and all your writing). You are such a great example to me. Seriously.

I love your fic featuring William. And don't cut ANY of the poker (please). I don't think there's too much of it. That story got to me so much that I've had several dreams about it. It's a wonderful fic.

I *love* Keith Carradine as the host. He's the highlight of the whole thing.

Ditto. I adore him. He's perfect!

You know, I don't have ANY Western icons!!! I totally need to make some...
