Things to Share for a Sunday

First, I promised I'd share Helene's blog, TBR Number One, in which she cheerfully eviscerates the Times' bestseller lists. She was reading David McCullough on the trip to Baton Rouge, so stay tuned for her next essay.

~

The Story of the Story of O is an interesting essay about the making of the work and its author.

The author said later that Story of O, written when she was forty-seven, was based on her own fantasies. She was influenced, too, by her lover’s admiration for the Marquis de Sade. Later she described her feverish writing process as “writing the way you speak in the dark to the person you love when you’ve held back the words of love for too long and they flow at last … without hesitation, without stopping, rewriting, discarding … the way one breathes, the way one dreams.”

Time for some XMFC love:



and



both via Fuck Yeah Charles and Erik.

I have had ridiculous writing block and the attention-span of a flea today. I've got some vacation coming up soon which I hope will recharge my batteries, but mostly I'm kind of alarmed and how quickly the summer is going by and how much stuff I still have to do. In other words, should there be radio silence--hopefully it means I'm being uber-productive.

I have accomplished absolutely nothing this afternoon because I have been completely immersed in XMFC vids and fic; I just can't get enough of them! *clings*

*clings back*

That one picture makes me want to figure out how to work them into the printer!verse. They could be not-rival bookshop owners who like to play chess at the Berkeley shop, and oh man, Charles vs. Spock while Erik looks on disapprovingly and Bones entertains bb!Amanda, what is my brain even?

Because I am a creature of sparkles and rainbows? *is morose*

And Raven is at the Art Institute with Pavel. They fight all the time, but then when Hank dumps her Pavel punches him and breaks his thumb, so he has to tell the whole story to Bones in the ER, who realizes with bemusement that this is the sister of that one guy who likes to flirt with Jim all the time at the shop.

TELL ME TO STOP IT ALISA, I DON'T HAVE TIME TO WRITE THIS RIGHT NOW!

*sigh* It's in my brain now.

*tries to be optimistic* Maybe it's a sign that my stbb should be going back to the printer!verse, because I'm just not feeling the angst necessary for ring!verse. *mumbles* But I still need to finish Heaven is Bloodless. *clings to you harder than ever*
