You Know Kayt Loves You When...

She spends hours outside in 34 degree heat, elbow deep and body-smeared in boiling hot glue, being pestered by flies who want to get their grubby feelers on some of the 50% sugar making up the glue, in order to make paper mache animals for you to destroy completely in the space of 5 minutes.

The Pig Pinata for the Obernewtyn.net New Years Eve party is nearly complete. The Mystery Animal had an accident, (I think the balloon inside popped) and consequently was forced to undergo extensive masking tape and paper mache surgery today. Hopefully, when it comes out of the drying room (ie. boiling hot garage), it will again be equipped with a nice rump. Cos, before it was rather bum-less.

All I can say is YOU BETTER LOVE PINATAS, PEOPLE!!! If I don't get squeals of unparralleled delight from each and every one of you as you reduce my hours of work back to the inky pulp it began as, I will superglue your puppies to the ceiling and write threatening letters to the Prime Minister under your names...

All: Oh, I say... Steady on, there...

So... what have I been doing, other than sculpting animals' backsides out of newspaper?

Well... I've been attempting to continue work on my idea for a Detective Series, The Lucid Detective. I just need to get back into the swing of it again, I think. I do love Olaf and Dave. I need to define the characters of Donna and Connie a little more though. I really need to give them something distinct.

I've been a very good girl and worked on entries about the Australian Liberation Army for the LorF-Wiki, the Users Encyclopedia for life_or_freedom.

I've also been having a good look at the Story About Stories. I really didn't get far into it when I started writing. katiefoolery was right. On reading it, I've decided it ISN'T crap. However, I do think I know what's wrong with it. I think I need to focus the story on JUST Tiana, the Girl and Kateb, the Writer. At the moment, I'm focusing on Bevyn, the Brother too. I do like the story focusing on all three, with Tiana, Kateb and Bevyn all representing a different aspect of Stories (Tiana as the Character, Kateb as the Writer and Bevyn as the Reader). However, I think maybe it's a little too confusing.

I suppose I could also think about changing perspective, and going with a third person approach, although I think Kateb, as a writer, needs to be doing his own writing. I could also have it told third person, but as though written by Kateb. That may be the way to go, actually...

All: We don't know who these people are or what you're talking about.

Kayt: Well... quite. But I was just thinking to myself. This isn't all here solely for your benefit you know. :P

Anyway, I'm off to try and find some sort of late lunch (it being 3:20...), then after lunch, I might get to work on The Lucid Detective again. Or failing that the Story. As long as I do SOMETHING with myself... If I'm too slack for either of those things, I'll do more LorF Wiki. I want to be a good girl these holidays and write like mad. Now the Fraternal Unit has his own computer, I have little excuse not to work.

Cheerio, and get psyched up about pinatas, party people! Or else...

Many shiny ponies and all that...

End Transmission.

5:00pm: I've had an idea!

All: Would you care to enlighten us?

No. I wouldn't.

Oooh, I haven't done paper mache in YEARS. You make me wanna do it... I WANNA PLAY WITH PAPER MACHE!!

:P

Also, I love pinatas! But I won't be there :( We had some at VG but by that stage a pole had already fallen on my head so I just stood back and watched... They sucked though, they only let you hit it properly once and then they pulled it up and down and around all the time. *sigh*

And skim reading the bit about Story of Stories since I don't really know what it is so I was just skimming it, I read Kateb as Kebab the first time... Whoops...

You did remember to put the lollies inside the pinatas, right?

Good luck with your writing. I don't think I've ever read any of the Story About Stories, but I do remember The Lucid Detective and that was a lot of fun.

Well, that would be an utter let down of a pinata if she didn't.
