Stoopid Brain [Oct. 12th, 2008|12:21 pm]
Beemer
A conversation between me and my brain:

ME: You know, it's a piece of fiction. We don't actually have to get the ephemeris correct. We could just make it up.

MY BRAIN: But we found that website with the information all organized in nice tables. Just a little bit of of cut and paste in Excel and we'll know exactly how it all should go! It'll only take, like, half an hour. An hour, tops.

ME: Yeah, but we're spending time on figuring that out when we could be actually writing and advancing the story.

BRAIN: But it fits so well!

ME: Okay, yes, in some ways, but it's kind of inconvenient that the one thing falls on a Tuesday when--

BRAIN: Just tweak the story a little. That scene needed a better hook anyway.

ME: Can't we fudge things a little? For convenience?

BRAIN: No!

ME: Nobody will care! Nobody will even notice!

BRAIN: IT ITCHES!

ME: FINE!

ME: ...

ME: Why are you subvocalizing in the voice of Bill Bailey?!

BRAIN: BECAUSE I'M INSANE!

ME: So long as we're clear on that.

And thus why I spent two hours on the Ohio Western Museum's website in the middle of a crucial piece of writing.

My brain speaks to me like I imagine Poe spoke.

For serious? Yay! It makes me happy to know I'm not the only one.
