"The content page contains content controls that supply content to the content placeholders. You can decide how many master page content placeholders are overridden by content controls in the content pages. Because you don’t have to override every content placeholder in a master page, you can also specify default content to display if there’s no corresponding content on a content page."

we teach girls to shrink themselves
to make themselves smaller
we say to girls, "you can have ambition
but not too much,
you should aim to be successful,
but not too successful,
otherwise you will threaten the man”
Y’all know what to do.

Writing a book is like having a very long illness.

Amazing how natural it feels to go back to writing by hand. My wrists will hate me in the morning, but I got 14 pages chugged out in one sitting. It felt really, really good.
This new project may be coming along more quickly since it’s actually a work of fiction and not just a thinly-veiled novelization of my college life. I’m not so personally invested in it, so wrought with emotion about it.
It is still proving to be a challenge since one of the main characters is a mass shooter, but I think I’m getting somewhere good with it. We’ll see. I’m feeling positive about it for now. Let’s just get this first draft done and go from there.
So, I’m wondering if I should go back to writing stuff out by hand. It seems so much more natural to me, and I might get some more writing actually done, instead of just saying to myself, “I should be writing right now.” Starting from scratch on a computer just feels wrong somehow. More forced and less flow than I’d like.
There’s still editing to think about, too, though. Lots and lots and lots of editing. And that HAS to be done digitally.
And now I’m thinking about turning the novel into a screenplay. Since I see it more as a movie than anything else, it seems like it would just make much more sense and maybe find some success? Plus it’s already mostly dialogue. And I have a soundtrack picked out and everything.
If Girls can get three seasons with some boring-ass rich whitebread hipsters, surely a ragtag multiracial/sexual group of college druggies in Middle America is worth at least 90 minutes of someone’s time, right?
Perhaps I should find out exactly how to write a screenplay first.

So, Amazon Prime Instant Video has five seasons of The Twilight Zone in HD compared to Netflix’s paltry two, and I’m coming to terms with a very strange but not at all unexpected crush on Rod Serling. Dude was a fox AND a genius.
Also, heads up X-Files fans: do not, repeat, DO NOT watch that godforsaken Chris Carter show that Amazon picked up. The mighty have fallen, and fallen hard. Plus Jamie Kennedy plays a gay clown, so that’s reason enough not to watch.
