This one is mostly sort of a stream-of-consciousness mini-blather in response to some not-important (but slightly amusing, at least for me) thing that happened… Typed it up in (*looks up original date*) the middle of January. Sharing it now because someone asked for it.
The clone cut his hair yesterday morning… Said that doing so should help him with his writing, since it makes him “feel more Tebrey-ish.” Said he’s a bit of a “method actor” when it comes to writing, and that he knew I’d understand.
…and there I sat, drinking coffee although I don’t get any physical benefits from caffeine (shut up, brain! this is caffeine, not… some other substance that usually has an effect on the human body, and besides, I’m trying very hard not to think in that direction, ’cause my twin and I are mindlinked — oh, thanks sooooo much for that ‘early warning,’ but honestly, I don’t expect it to be an issue — and I don’t want to derail his train of thought — *sighs, decides that perhaps today is another day for listening to one song on repeat until it goes away* — when he could be writing a scene with one of the characters I know best…), because that’s one of the ways I get myself to feel more like one of the viewpoint characters in my own fiction. That and searching the internet for vintage blueprints of Craftsman houses. For a house that’s in one scene in the backstory! Do I really need to know where the stairs are in relation to the front door, or am I obsessing about this because I just happen to like old architecture anyway, and this is an excuse to indulge in the name of “research”?
(In case you’re curious, the song I mentioned listening to on repeat is “Runaway Train,” by Soul Asylum.)
