Now, on a less somber and revealing note, there are two novels and two short stories, plus a round robin that I am attempting basic work on, yet I continue to get utterly distracted.

Skyrim looks at me and lifts her skirt, asking me if I wanna have a good time. The dishes are screaming in pain from the sink. They've been dirty for so long I think all of them have a form of boils. Or worse, like Ebola. Wikipedia is always taunting me about having a word still blue on some page somewhere. My job is tossing rocks at the window and wants to know if I can come out and work.

Through all this, I try to find ways to stick with it. This is a book I've been mulling over, writing bits and pieces of since I first got the idea at 16. It's been 4 years now, and I have only 16,000 words. So now, maybe this will be what helps me write more (although I've said things in the past. NaNo will help me write more. An accountability partner will help me write more. Posting teasers on Facebook and seeing how many people ask for more will help me write more. They never work)

The best thing this site can do is get me in the *habit* of writing. When I come home, the first thing I should see is not the PC and think, "Oh, I can play some League of Legends!" It should be "Crap, I only have 16,000 words for what will probably be my biggest contribution to society in my life if I don't ever get my ass in gear and get more college."

I have a hard time with that bit, though. Procrastination is kind of an art style for me. I've gotten down to being able to look back at the end of the day, feeling successful up until the moment I realize I was successful only in getting my sneak skill up to 70 in Skyrim.

Bleh. I guess this is a big, "Hey! What are you doing typing this when Will hasn't talked to Relic yet in the time stop!" A big slap in the face telling me I should write some more of "Still".

Also, I watched Avengers last night. Little details are what make the movie great, but what most surprised me is that I actually liked all of the main characters, and I have no idea why I could ever like the Hulk or... God forbid, Captain America.

I'm mostly looking forward to two movies this year above all else: Dark Knight Rises, and The Hobbit: Part 1. Dark Knight Rises, because Bane is accurately represented, as well as the fact that I have seen every Christopher Nolan movie ever and he is my favourite director of all time. The Hobbit, because who the hell isn't looking forward to that movie?
