I love you. So much. I look forward to every other chapter of Commuter Diaries you release <3
COMMUTER DIARIES THAT’S a way better name. My caps lost steam there. Oops.
Anyway yeah so I was actually telling that entire post in story form…to myself…while driving home…so there were lots of funny voices and inflections and things that I could not replicate in text. At one point CT and Wash rode off in a covered wagon pulled by the 87 cats.
And Wash had this great conversation with Farmer Steve and Farmer Joe, except it turned out Farmer Steve was actually Farmer Wilbur who had been mistaken for Farmer Steve because all the Farmers have the same voice because I don’t give them individual voices. Because. Fuck that.
I was going to record it as a voice post thing but then my parents were home and I didn’t feel like being excessively insane, although I suppose it is slightly less insane to actually be telling a story to an audience of sorts rather than telling yourself a story out loud as you are driving past tiger-license-plate cars.
Look, people. This has been a rough week. Do not cast your judging eyes upon my life.
And Ree, I love you toooo =D
Oh man, I totally do the same thing when I’m alone. It doesn’t have to be in a car. I once spent my entire grocery shopping trip after work one evening talking to myself as I mapped out a scene between two of my characters - one of which was having a psychotic break and was about to kill the other. There were voices. And they resulted in strange looks. It was awesome.
I say you totally record these when you have a chance. Because some stories are meant to be spoken. Especially ones with silly voices and 87 cats. And interchangeable farmers.
I talk to myself a lot when my housemates aren’t home. I’ve given thought to recording it, but I kind of think if I hear myself I’ll stop doing it out of “Ree, wtf are you doing with your life?” embarrassment.
Didn’t we talk about reading ridiculous fanfic out loud as a thing we were going to do at some point? I think we should bring that back. Especially the funny crackfic ones. :D
Oh, good. I talk to myself constantly when I’m alone. =D (To the point that when I’m not talking to myself it’s typically a sign of depression sneaking up on me.)
We should do the read aloud thing, yes, definitely. Crackfic Fridays or something.
Crackfic Fridays are totally an official thing now. Hm, I suppose I should read one of my sillier things out loud and upload it because HOUSEMATES AREN’T HOME TIME TO TALK TO MYSELF AW YEAH. :D
Also it’s raining and thundering outside and we all know the best backdrop to any hilarious crackfic of ridiculousness is a fierce summer storm (or as fierce as a summer storm here is likely to get).
