Meandering along...

I still have the feeling on the edge of a cusp feeling I get sometimes, when I know my interests in things start to reorient, but I haven't really discovered my next obsession.

Not my particularly favorite place to be, but when you're there, you're there.  Maybe its because I'm going to the gym again, and actually have some energy once again, or maybe it's just because it's spring.

Poetry muse has tiptoed home, hung over, ragged, but home.  I always miss her when she's gone long periods.  My Inu muse had a burst of energy the last two weeks, and I wrote a good bit. 

I remember the last time I was in this frame of mind...We had moved here about six months earlier.  Hubby was away at the wildfires in Georgia and Florida.  I was lonely and bored and actually would turn on the TV early in the morning (this is rare, rare for me, btw) and discovered  InuYasha.

What new stuff lies around the bend?

Issekiwa is doing poetry contests for its 100th theme. Haiku, acrostic and heroic verse. The contest closes on April 29. I will try to write something to keep my streak of consecutive contests alive at 54. You should write a poem for this contest since you are
the poet lauerate of Inuyasha fanfiction.

There was a young girl from Nantucket.....

Unfortunately, I don't like the forms she chose...I HATE acrostic poems, and although I write good haiku, I am not fond of them in this type of situation; they really aren't suitable for a narrative. Heroic couplets work, but they're damn hard to write and not have it sound trite. So she picked the three forms I am least wanting to write. Stuff happens.

I'm not really much of a formist - I mean, I write a whole lot of poetry that is very structured, but I tend to let the poem choose the form, not the other way around, to begin with. My best work seems to invoke, but not be directly derived from, folk song rhythms...

But if she had put Tanka into the list, I'd probably been there in a trice...Tanka is one of the few forms I know I can be comfortable with on demand. Funny how that works...

Maybe it won't necessarily be new - but old? There's something comforting in turning back to something you were really into in the past, and looking at it with real 'fandom' goggles.

Or maybe you're about to pick up another hobby? Something to use all that newfound energy? :P Either way, glad to hear things are looking up for you, even if that means over...and out...and beyond my comprehension =)

Whatever it is, I hope it's something fun and fulfilling that you will enjoy it a lot. ^_^

Hoo, boy... that same feeling has been chewing on my brain lately, too! The OCs have taken to loudly muttering in the front corner of the Hutch (instead of hiding in the back) whilst polishing their weaponry; methinks they're about to demand that I start writing the novel!

*ducks behind Fenik, Inu and Cloud*

I hear that one....my OCs are murmuring as well...One's taken to haunting me, but he hasn't quite decided what he wants to do yet...He's given me this interesting opening, but as I keep telling him, that's not enough to invest time in him yet...but boy, he's got such cute puppy eyes....I hate'em when they're like that...

Well, I hope both of you have at least a little more left in the tank. I'm actually making progress on one more big thing. Still, without more canon, there's only so many gaps left to be adequately filled, I s'pose.

Edit: And when you do quit, KK, I want your last act to be that chronological archive.

I swear on Adam Smith's grave, that the day I decide to quit, I will put them all into order in a chapter fic form....

I don't think Inu's through with me yet, though...although these other stories may want some of my time...

Y'know, just because I have an economics degree doesn't mean I worship Adam Smith. :P

Well, when I'm not living in the 16th century in Japan, I'm often living in the 18th century in the American colonies, and sometimes in Great Britain....I do 18th century reenacting....

Just call me Mama KK, history nerd.
