I like worldbuilding.

I'm building frameworks. Particularly, I'm building broken frameworks for my protagonists to wander around in and go, "What idiot made a universe like THIS? Can't you see that if you just give it a good shove here --" *SHOVE*

*ominous creaking from the set*

"Uh-oh..."

*more ominous creaking*

*evil laughter over the speakers*

"RUN."

In the real world, it is my job to iron-plate everything, to make it impossible to break it, tear it down, or shoot your foot off with it. Therefore, it's a real, honest, evil-wish-fulfilling joy to build something that I know is going to break, know that it's going to break in a big ugly interesting way on my characters, and know that it's SUPPOSED TO DO THAT.

My protagonists don't seem too pleased with me. Fortunately, they haven't found where I locked up the pitchforks yet.

I started poking at Easter Lilies and Imaginary Angels this evening. I can see some places that need some serious work in here now, and I need to reread all of BRAWL's crits, but it's salvageable, and more importantly, aside from one day in early November, this is the first time I've felt like I might manage any writing at all for the past month.

Granted, the holidays are going to eat my life, but it's something.

It also has the nice side benefit of shutting up Ms. Grumpy-Protagonist-in-Hole over there, as she's also the protag for Easter Lilies. ;)

Protagonist: Hole! This thing, it is dark! And I am still in it!
Writer: Sorry, $payingJob sucked mightily today.
Protagonist: My paying job sucks too.
Writer: So you can sympathize.
Protagonist: I bet your paying job doesn't leave you stuck in a hole for 48 hours, though!
Writer: Have you been through Logan Airport lately?
Protagonist: ...
