are you a star wars fan? i hear the exhibit at the franklin institute is great.

the very franklin institute whose imax was supposed to be playing u23d but isn't.
I actually don't know. I'll report back.

I've never seen a Star Wars film.

I still haven't seen U23D in KOP cause my parents refuse to let me drive there. I might not see it at all.

I write about people too. Relationships, to be precise. Though I'm pushing out from just relationships into long term character transformation. Landscape? huh? who wants to read about that? Beyond setting a scene accurately.

What, accordians?

That's it, remind me to tell Bono he needs to learn how to play the accordian.

Landscapes should be in sound, i.e. UF. The words need to be about people, IMO. Hence, why I enjoy Bono's lyrics.

So, next thread, Wittenoom or Centralia? Somebody else make it anyway. I'm far enough behind on this one as it is!

I would love to, but the only things I really have here are written parodies of certain family members and friends. Kind of in-jokey with the other more humourous and smug members of my family.

But I'll write something!

I kid. I know it's not for everyone, and it's hard not to get defensive about it, because it IS kind of embarrassing to admit your hobby to someone who doesn't feel the same way about it as you do.

But I don't care.
Try admitting to being a plane nerd in front of an entire class of comparatively cool people

Oh come on. I want to be engrossed in where the story is set. I don't just want "bla bla is a rural town". Describe the thing.

Centralia, dude. That is the real UF right there.

Though Wittenoom is pretty awesome. That can go sometime after.

tragedy. I still wanna see it a 2nd time. I'm thinking about the 2-bus, 1:25 minute each way trip to get back to KOP. We should see it together if you can get there on the bus or something! Or, I can sign up for philly car share and get the car some time, and pick you up, but you'd have to split the car rental with me.

I don't think I've written anything I'd be willing to share with anyone yet.

I've been working on a novel for over a year. I just want to finish it - I might go back and edit it in the future, but for now I just want the feeling of accomplishment, to have a complete first draft.
