Again I am lacking any sort of inspiration for iyfic_contest. And it's such a cool theme, too. Weapons! Pointy, sharp things! I should be able to come up with something. I'm gonna try, anyway. I've got...a few hours. Then again, I could just knit instead. Knit and watch a movie. Hmm...

I placed again in iyfic_challenge. I actually feel kind of weird about that. I mean, I probably should be excited that I placed (and I still am, somewhat), but there were so many stories, drabbles especially, that I thought were so much better. Meh. Admittedly, I am very bad at taking praise. I always feel like it's a trick or something. It makes me feel mildly uncomfortable.

...I probably just need more self-confidence. Because I do deserve nice things sometimes, dang it! Yeah. *coughs*

Meanwhile, I have decided that drabbles are incredibly addicting. I'd never even done a drabble before until...what, maybe a month ago? --but now I'm a total convert. I find it so challenging to try and pack a complete idea in so few words and still hope the point comes across. I actually had a random thought on the drive home from work today, that if I was feeling particularly ambitious, a cool idea would be to do a "108 Stars" Suikoden drabble thingy. The idea being I could write a drabble for each of the 108 characters (at least in Suikoden II & III, since they are my faves). *tips over* I feel like someone must have tried this already, but perhaps not. I am contemplating actually doing it, though.

EDIT: Okay, I wrote something. I probably went a little overboard on the dialect, but...I was having fun, dang it!
