Damn You, Fellow Writer, Damn You!

Forgive me for my post title outburst. I swear, it is not directed at any of my lovely writerly friends. Unless someone here happens to secretly be a writer of LOST, because then -- Yes, I am most definitely directing my emotional unrest at you!

It's been a while since I talked about my obsession with LOST on my blog, since I know most of you aren't watchers. However, if you know anyone who's a fan by now you've probably heard how last night -- with 3 shows left until the final episode ever -- the writers killed off three long-standing characters. Not just killed them, but in a most heart-wrenching, I-have-to-watch-my-true-love-die fashion. Seriously, it was like watching the scene in Titanic where Jack makes Rose promise she'll never give up. *tear*

So yeah, anyway, last night's episode did not leave me with the warm & fuzzies -- and I'm still not over it.

Contest Alert:  If you're not already following The Alliterate Allomorph head on over to Jessica's blog (after you finish reading mine, of course). She is well on her way to 200 followers. When she gets there she's planning to give away some pretty cool stuff, involving critiques & ish like that.

Speaking of which -- I am a blogging slacker compared to some of my buddies. To be honest, I often don't even notice that I've picked up a new follower until they comment. And I've noticed that some of the blogs I follow don't show up in my blogger feed. So anyway, if you've followed me and I haven't reciprocated, or if I've not been by to drop you a comment every now & again, don't be afraid to bring it to my attention -- because, I assure you, it is not intentional!

Question Alert: Do any of you all belong to the Absolute Write forums? I mentioned a while back, that I'm kind of slow when it comes to "joining" things. So I just registered for the forum last night. I'm feeling shy though -- don't laugh. Just curious to know if anyone else I know is on there and if you go by the same names as here or say the BransForums. If not Absolute Write, are there other forums & MBs you enjoy visiting? I'm trying to diversify. :o)

Last, but not least -- Big THANKS to Slushpile Slut (which I happen to think is the coolest blog name, EVER!) for mentioning that the hated red,dotted underline on blogger isn't a dead end. If you right click on said red, dotted underline you get a list of possible alternatives for the word you muffed up. It is a wondrous bit of news for us not-so-perfect spellers!!

I missed my chance to follow Lost, so I'm a tad los...err...unfamiliar with the the storyline. Sorry they messed with you though.

As far as the forums, I'm registered but I don't go out there. Not enough time.

Umm, I am kind of intimated by AW forums. Too much stuff and too many people for me. I like NB.

Shelley Sly said...

I used to be part of two writing forums (neither of the ones you mentioned), but one closed down and the other, I couldn't really connect with anyone there. I've thought about joining AW forums, but I don't think I have the time to keep up with anything else. :-P

Stopped watching Lost two years ago.
Can I take my fingers out of my ears, yet?? U done screaming at me.

I was wayyyy to into it; taking up large amounts of writing time. I was pathetic. I'd watch an episode over, and over, and over.....

Jessica - You know I'd pimp you any time you ask. ;o)

Shan & Shelley - That's what I'm worried about, getting sucked into a place that will take ALL of my time!

Matthew - it's good to know I'm not the only wimp!

Shar - I won't yell at you. If not for my obsession for all things Sawyer, I may have stopped watching too.

Hey Tracy!!! So glad that little tidbit of info the red line is your friend ;P

I used to love "Lost" but I got so lost 2 seasons back and now I have no idea WTF is going on! That's horrible they killed off 3 main actors...maybe they'll get sucked up thru some time port and be alive on the last show?! It could happen!
