Dept. of Really, Really Slow Start

Log Jam! Log Jam!

  • Rewatched The Girl Who Waited  and The God Complex  yesterday.
  • Really watched them. Thought about them.
  • Made notes.
  • Made connections. Made sparks spark inside my head and make more connections.
  • Understood why I loved TGWW, from its construction to its heart, and discovered something about Amy as I struggled through my understanding of one crucial scene.
  • Understood why TGC didn't work for me, why I found it creaky in construction and simple-minded in conceit despite stellar bits and pieces and people. Learned a bit more about myself, too.
  • Couldn't write any of it, though. Neck hurt, ankles hurt, hands hurt, skin hurt.
  • Worse, brain shut down when asked to put all the sparks together to make light, to connect all the connections so that they made a road map. Brain said, "No. Don't want to. Look! A computer game! Let's play it over and over and over and over and over -"
  • Went to bed.
  • Today I went to a wedding, and was very happy for the tough and wonderful lady who wed her genial and lovely gentleman. Also rocked the "going to a wedding look."
  • Came home.
  • Couldn't write.
  • Am now behind by two episodes and counting.
  • WTF, brain? WTF?
