(no subject)

I have a work in progress story that's stalled. Mostly this is because the initial section resonates a bit with Eastern Standard Tribe, if it were set in a Tim Powers style universe with hidden occult elements etc. The reason for the stalling is that I don't want to trivialise mental illness or do a disservice to the whole thing, but the story itself requires it.

EDIT: That's not to say that the story requires that the situation be trivialised, but that said situation and related elements are present, and I have zero confidence in my ability to handle them without trivialisation.

Something to add to the "come back someday" file for now.

Fire yesterday. Was good again. Need to do that regularly. Unfortunately, haven't been online all weekend, so I need to catch up. Given that I'm in work at 6:30 tomorrow, I don't think I will tonight. Chances of coherency are slim to none.
