Well, not really – not in the romantic sense, at least.
I had a post all ready to go to A) dispute the Druid and his pompous proclamations, and B) analyze just why I am moping.
Instead, I chucked it out the window. To quote my favorite doppelganger: bored now. Besides, the Druid is right (don’t tell him I said that – I’ll never hear the end of it if he finds out).
D: I heard that.
A: Oi! This is my spot. Sundays are my day!
D: Yes, but you seem to lose the plot when you start talking all by yourself. I’m just here to keep you on track.
A: Right. . .
D: And to help with the humor factor.
A: I wasn’t trying to be—
D: And that’s why you fail.
A: Oi, D!
A: Fine, whatever. May I continue?
D: Be my guest, but keep it snappy, A.
A: I was going to say something about following my own advice and not take my characters – or myself – too seriously, but it seems rather beside the point, now.
D: Indeed. I think you need to limit your poignant posts to once-a-month. Any more than that and you might tax your sensibilities beyond their limit.
A: . . .
D: I’m just looking out for you, A.
A: You’re just looking out for your book.
D: Yes, but for me, A, they are one and the same.
A: RIght, and on that note . . . take a gander at the page, my friends. I’ve added two links at the top. One is for “Other Fiction” and the other is “Defining the Dialogue.” The first is rather self-explanatory, but the second—
D: Why do we need defining, A?
A: You’ve said it yourself, no one else is inside my brain—
D: (Consider yourselves lucky – it’s a tough place to escape).
A: And Defining the Dialogues is a timeline of sorts for The Book. Oftentimes our dialogue centers on passages I’ve written. Decoding puts them in chronological book order –
D: Or as good as, considering it’s a time-travel story.
A: D, you’re not helping. Posts pertaining to Part 1 of The Book have all been listed. I’ll work on Part 2 this week, and since we have yet to post about Parts 3 and 4, those will go live as they happen.
D: You made it live without completing it!? A!
A: It was 2 in the morning, D – I wanted something to show for the insomnia!
D: She really needs to get out more.
A: And stop focusing on word count. Can I just say how happy I am going to be when July is over?
D: You and everyone else, A.
A: Cheers, D – good night all. Lifting a glass to fun snark, from here on out.
