wayback wednesday  
I wrote some pages last night that I was quite happy with. I've been struggling quite a bit to find the right voice for the novel and going back and forth on how I wanted to handle POV, but last night I just wrote without worrying about any of that and it turned out my subconscious had already figured things out for me. I'd be thorougly happy if I could write the whole thing that way. Like some 1920s spiritualist doing automatic writing.

One the negative side, I'm sick and at work, but back on the positive, Magic Carpet is back today! Bring on the falafel salads!

Ah yeah, it's always better when undermind does the writing for you...

But how do we nourish and encourage the undermind?

I think this is the beginning of a beautiful conversation!

I mean, that's basically what I think "I" do. The part of me that I identify as myself. All I do is take care of undermind, set things out for undermind to play with, etc.

It's funny cause I watch a lot of movies, thinking that it gives my mind lots of images and ideas to play with, but for the past couple weeks I've seen comparatively little in scripted drama. I wonder if that provoked the undermind into providing its own entertainment.

I think different things work at different times. If something's working, I stick with it. If it's not working, I change it up.

Maybe, but there's sickness going around the office as well. No worries either way.

All I know about that pic is that the original filename was amnorda320qb5 and that it likely came from here: http://community.livejournal.com/vintage_sex/
