humbled by the words of another. 1.06.05

i was going to blog about an editorial in the economist; but procrastination brought me back to the nyt wedding announcements commentary blog. when i read this post, (read it. it's badass, has rashomon references and tools we love to hate) i couldn't stop laughing. then i couldn't write. i was shamed by the weak characters in my novel, and i will procrastinate by having them tell ridiculous and pompous stories, by making them more satirical. i think i have a problem-- i like my protagonists too much to make fun of them...

and also, i have work still to do for my internship. sigh.
