I admit it, lately I have been distracted from writing. In fact, I do not believe I have done anything since Thursday. Why? Because of Matthew Fox. It started out with obsessively rewatching his Haunted series--love the asylum episode. Then that lead me to Lost rewatching--especially the final episode when he tells Flocke he's going to kill him. Those scenes/episodes? Just ooooh. And come on, look at that cover! It's hard not to get addicted. He's just so watchable.
Besides, I'll let you in on a little secret. I tend to do fanfic in my head about my favorite characters in my favorite series. If the idea is good enough, it becomes a repeat mind-fic. (I get bored easy, yes.) Then the mind-fic begins to alter the characters, backstory, situation, etc. Finally, it becomes my own idea, my own story, my own characters.
When I start obsessing and day dreaming this much about a character, it usually means I'm getting close to a story idea. That's how my Walker series started out. Although, it wasn't aforementioned dream boy who was the root cause of it. No, just another random hottie, Michael Shanks/Stargate-SG1's Daniel Jackson.
So, what have I been doing the last few days? I've been watching Haunted and Lost. Obsessively. My mind tells me it is a bad thing, because it means I am so story-starved I have to watch tv shows when I could be (at best) writing or (at least) reading. But my mind also tells me it's a good thing because I'm working on some story bit by obsessive bit.
So, when will I get back to writing? Likely Friday. Until then, I'll just play around with Matthew Fox's roles. Trust me, I won't be bored.
