Actual conversation I just had with a stranger I met at a café:

Stranger: so, when you say a lot of trashy fiction comes through your workplace, what do you mean? I mean, you’re holding a 40K novel in your hand.

Ica: Well, if I see one more sappy romance novel set in the Blitz, I am going to scream. Oh, booh-hoo, we’re on meat rations and out of dog bisquits, poor brave Britain! Meanwhile, over in Stalingrad, people are eating each other… hard to make a real siege sexy.

Stranger: That’s interesting. Hmmm. You could run with that! Like, you could write a romance story…But with the cannibalism. Like, maybe one of them ends up…eating the other? But they don’t, uh, mean to. Or, they do, but it doesn’t break with the romance, and it’s like this intimate thing…makes the audience feel complicit.

Ica: I dunno. Sounds like a Rammstein song.

(hmm, yup. it's all just a bit Mein Teil. The stranger was actually pretty cool, she was great conversation and a former writing student. I hope our paths cross again.)

  • Listening to: the rain
  • Reading: a 40K novel...

Only in conjunction with the image - the title wouldn't do much for me on its own. *smiles* But the plant looks quite content in its precariously-rooted, windblown situation, somehow - in as much as a plant can look content.

thanks for adding rapture to your favourites.

'tis appreciated!

excuse my ignorance, but what's the TL/DR boundary?

*smiles* My pleasure. I've taken photos of similar subject matter, but never to the effect you managed to achieve there. It almost looks like tattered feathers or cloth  rather than plastic.
TL/DR is "too long, didn't read"... And I assume you survived that entire blog post? I never know when long-form ends and too-long-form begins...
