Some days...

pumpkin
I find it very hard to associate with non-writers. The conversation becomes either trite or repetitive as if suffering from dementia. Today I really wanted to brainstorm through a story--my protag needs something/wants something I have yet to discover--but once I mentioned the magical penis trade between Hermes and a 17 yr old boy, my co-worker was useless.

At my former workplace, most of my co-workers would have dropped everything to mull over a magical penis trade. At my current workplace...not so much.

Yeah, I know that feeling.

I work for a university, so while there are plenty of writer's around I could talk to, most of them are so firmly stuck in the mindset of only reading and writing "literary" stuff you might find in the Oprah book club, so and ideas about genre or speculative fiction go right over their heads...

I would probably make a few jokes and then get down to problem solving.

In a similar way, I realized that i don't have anyone to talk to about line breaks in poems that is close by.

Hermes would probably fuck him. Greek gods. Go figure. I guess that's the penis trade..?
