Reading:


Memnoch the Devil by Anne Rice - the fifth book in the Vampire Chronicles series. I'm not that far yet (mainly 'cause I lost it for two weeks oops), so I'll just take part of the summary from Wikipedia: Lestat meets the Devil, who calls himself Memnoch. He takes Lestat on a whirlwind tour of HeavenHell and retells of the entirety of history from his own point of view in an effort to convince Lestat to join him as God's adversary. In his journey, Memnoch claims he is not evil, but merely working for God by ushering lost souls into Heaven. Lestat is left in confusion, unable to decide whether or not to cast his lot with the Devil.

So yeah. It's pretty good so far.

Writing:

This poem comparing our souls to bottles of colored sand. Basically, the different-colored layers of sand in the bottles are the different aspects of our personalities layered in our soul. But I CANNOT GET THE RHYTHM OF THE FIRST STANZA RIGHT AND IT'S KILLING ME. And that's the stanza that basically states the first two sentences of this paragraph and explains the premise of the entire poem so you're not going "whaaaaaaaat??" throughout. AND I want to repeat it at the end, so it has to be pretty strong. Plus, I came up with 11 colors, and there's no way to evenly divide up 11 into stanzas. I might axe brown, though, because I can't come up with something really good for it. But that gets us down to 10, which is literally no help because that can only be in two stanzas of five or five rhyming couplets. Ugh. Maybe I'll just restructure the whole thing into a different rhyme scheme.....that could help.

And this concludes Ellie's Annoying Writing Ramblings.

  1. Les miserables came and has been watched. But I was sick this weekend, so it's like I didn't watch it at all, cause I was too busy being cold and hot at the same time and contemplating headaches and all the other loveliness that goes with being sick.
    Disappointment.
    I'll try again next weekend. Or Wednesday, because that's when thanksgiving break starts.
    And on Friday I watched at least 5 episodes of supernatural. But it turns out that I can not binge watch, because my attention span is too short and I can't sit still for that long. So in between episodes, I danced around the house and made cookies. Even after that, I'm still only halfway through season 1.
    I NEED THIS SOUL POEM SO BAD. MAY THE POET GOD BE WITH YOU. MAY YOUR MUSES BRING THE PROPER STANZAS AND RHYME SCHEME TO YOUR LOVELY LITTLE BRAIN.
    I have started listening to Welcome To Night Vale, which you should listen to also. It is amusingly strange and strangely amusing. You may decide if there is a difference between the two.
    ALL HAIL THE GLOW CLOUD.

    1. Oh dear. Yes, you must make another attempt.
      Oh dear again. But dancing around the house and making cookies is a most admirable pursuit, so you are forgiven. What sort of cookies?
      THANK YOU BABE. IF I CAN GET IT RIGHT I'LL POST IT.
      Ah, yes, WTNV. Reagan (she introduced me to Supernatural) loves that also. But like you have little patience for Supernatural, I have little patience for WTNV. *sighs*
      I DID GET TO THE GLOW CLOUD EPISODE THOUGH. ALL HAIL IT INDEED.
