Kill them All

Have you ever noticed that if you're angry with one or two of the opposite gender, suddenly the whole world would be better off if that entire gender would be overcome by some genetic mishap that made them slowly and painfully bleed to death?

I'm having one of those days. Kill them all, I say.

Now what on earth could be so horrible that I would want the entire adult male population dead? Nothing in particular. Or perhaps everything. I just find the species incredibly irritating and stupid.

Let me pose two particular scenarios.

Say you have someone of the opposite (irritating) gender who claims you're a friend. Yet you find out they are going through something rather serious, and of course you do not find this out from the friend. Would you be just a little hurt? Angry? Want to rip their finger nails off? Or maybe it's just me?

How about you have a friend/acquaintance/questionable relationship of some odd sort with the opposite (irritating) gender, and they go months without speaking to you. Note, these months come after they tell you not to fuck something up and basically call you melodramatic. Then out of the blue they contact you and wonder why you haven't told them how great they are and how much you appreciate everything they did for you. Would you be a little miffed? stunned? Want to pull their leg hairs out one at a time with a tweezers? Or maybe this is just me also?

Whether it's just me or not, I still say just kill them all!

I Tried

I tried writing in Whispers again tonight. It ended up being one of those good scenes. Well, until Grant left Mara frustrated and alone. But anyway, I'm finding it more and more difficult to write in this story. I think I made it too close for comfort. Granted, the characters are nothing like who they were based on. At least, not much anymore. Except for maybe "Doctor C". He's not too fully developed yet, and so is still much like whom he was based on.

But I digress. As I was saying, it is getting increasingly difficult to write Whispers. I am too close to the characters. Granted, what little has been written is good (in my opinion...and I rarely say my stuff is good which probably means it sucks). But it is emotionally draining to write it. THis is new territory for me. I have never had writing emotionally drain me. It is usually energizing and healing.

Maybe it is healing me. And I just don't want to be healed. Hmmm, that is an interesting concept. I think I shall go explore that a bit more.
