So this is how today's writing session went:

Character 1: "Okay, I'm taking Character 2 to the hospital."

Me: "No, no, you can't! I need at least another few days for the tension to build!"

Character 2: "I'm surprisingly okay with that."

Character 1: "He's having a very serious problem and is going to the hospital."

Me: "See, this is why I don't write contemporary. He *can't* go to the hospital yet. It'll screw the exposition all to hell, and you need time to figure out he's actually slipping between parallel worlds."

Character 2: *is still surprisingly okay with it*

Character 1: "So, if this was your friend--a friend who was BLEEDING OUT THEIR EYE--you'd make them wait for a few days to build tension and smooth the flow of exposition?"

Me: ...

All my friends now reading this: "Hey!"

Me: "Okay, okay, geez! No. I would take them to the hospital." *thinks* "No, I would."

Character 1: "Which is what I'm doing now."

Character 2: *is not okay with it anymore*

Me: "See?!"

Character 1: "How many times do you have to have an editor delete the exclamation point after a question mark before you stop doing that?"

Me: "I could delete *you*, y'know."

Character 1: "You can try. Remember when you tried to un-kill Caidi? EIGHT TIMES?"

Me: "...I hate you."

Character 1: "Shut up and finish the scene."

Me: *grumbles while shutting up and finishing the scene*

Let’s try a thing.

I don’t know how long I’m going to last on this, to be honest, since this is a busy time for everyone, and I tend to bite off more than I can chew more often than not. But I thought it might be fun to share some holiday recipes, and since it isn’t the holidays without a little self-promotion (*snerk*), I wanted to share recipes that reflect the cultures that served as inspiration for some of my characters and the worlds in which they live. And since Bas (from Blue on Black) is Jewish in my head, and today is the last day of Hanukkah, we’re going with a modern spin (microwave!) on a traditional Hanukkah treat. So here we go:
