    I'm going to have to get better at referencing this year, since I'm switching over into law school and I've heard they're a bit tougher about these things.
    I made it through my law degree without ever learning to reference.

    After I finish watching the last twenty minutes of S2E3 of Sherlock. I knew it would be brilliant, and I was not disappointed.

    An essay is writing.

    Articulating and explaining a point about something clearly is overwhelmingly useful in prose.

    Especially in fight scenes!

    Sometimes, life is boring.

    Like when you're stuck on a cruise and your only entertainment options are to drink yourself into a stupor or throw yourself overboard!

    Thanks, Zoom!

    I'm just worried that when I get to it, I won't know where I am or what I'm doing. I'm like that with my other unfinished WIPs.

    Well, when I have to take a break on a WIP, I just re-read what I've already written. That's usually enough to jog the mind.

    Also, 667 words!

    Then you re-write them to better suit your vision!

    Also, I'm endlessly amused by this: I'm writing The Tale of Kes the Twistcatcher. It's 40,000 years into the future, and she's on a SPACESHIP traveling through a massive interstellar empire that spans a billion worlds and ten thousand years of recorded, uninterrupted history.

    ...and what is the most common form of death on said spaceship?

    SCURVY AND DYSENTERY!

    LOL. I love it when you have something set in the future combined with something "historical".

    Dinner soon.

    Yay!

    Now, I'm insane. I'm writing a Warhammer 40,000 story. This is a universe of warfare, darkness and bleakness.

    ...and I've put in a love triangle.

    WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME!?

    Because love triangles are fun! That is, if there's some purpose other than to belabor the obvious.
