My brain, it spilled on the screen!

Awww yeah, something happened last night, and my notes went through an explosive growth spurt. This is beyond groovy.

Day... 8...?

Magic system now sophisticated enough to write an esoteric tome about. Reader may require a degree in magic to comprehend though, so have to be careful not to get... technical?

Thinking about writing short stories in my setting to utilize the full potential of my notes. Good or bad idea? I'll get on it soon, hopefully create some short stories and post 'em up.

Put major project on hold? Work on another, since my notes have taken a twist in a completely other direction that I must say feels incredibly exciting. Then again, these revelations can be incorporated to the story I have been musing about easily to add flavour and texture...

Plot still an issue. I need a story to tell. The setting is developing at a dramatic rate, with characters lagging a little behind, but actual events have yet to form a coherent timeline. Balls. I'll have to brainstorm this, I've been putting it off since I hate creating plot.

Other news:

Partaking in psychology experiments as part of my course. Nothing unusual, did that last year. However, what is interesting is that this year, I found lots of qualitative studies to partake in that essentially ask one to write stories, or describe individuals.

Improve my skills as a writer AND earn credits for my course? Yes please. I got the synergy.

Have to boast here as well for some reason, did massively well in Social & Theoretical essay. Apparently second-highest mark in the entire pool of 2nd year students. Beyond chuffed. Not that anyone here cares, but still. In yo' face.

Creative aids:
Currently enjoying a potent caffeine high induced by what must be a litre of energy drink. 2 cans, both 500ml or so, yeah. Nice. Monster and that cheap swill, Relentless. Eurgh, watered down and yucky, it is the beer of the energy drink world. It -is- dirt-cheap though, and in studentia, quantity, not quality, must be the word of the day.

Music has taken a back-seat as creativity has finally surged forth. This was further exacerbated by the girlfriend wishing to communicate with me from the sofa, resulting in prompt removal of headphones. She did me a favor, I think. Lyrics and sweet guitar solos tend to interfere with writing. Then again, so does overhearing the episodes Family Guy she was watching. God that show is awesome.

Regardless, the current musical trend in my world seems to be dark ambient. Atrium Carceri, Desiderii Marginis, Sephiroth. I dare any horror fan to read a particularly scary passage of horror alone, late at night, in dim lighting, while listening to In Chaos Eternal by Atrium Carceri from a set of expensive headphones. That music weirds you out... This also works to enchance any scary gaming some of you might be doing.
