Ooops! Is there furious hole-plugging now taking place????

fairyhedgehog said...

I know just how that feels.Good luck in solving it. (Can you solve a hole? Maybe a plothole you can.)

Kerrie said...

One wonders if the sign was really necessary....Sorry I forgot health and safety.

sylvia said...

Oh no!

*comfort*

Handy Tip

Beethoven doesn't help.

fairyhedgehog said...

Damn! I'll have to go to plan B.

Divine intervention.

By the way, this wouldn't happen to be the same staircase that Nathan Bransford is climbing in his Facebook photo, would it?

Come to think of it, like Clark Kent and Superman, I've never seen the two of you in the same room together. (That's right: Clark Kent and Superman have never seen the two of you in the same room together, either.)

Fairy
B for Bruckner? Sometimes works.

Pete
Nathan looks happier climbing that staircase than I did with mine, and though he may only be half as tall as I am (you can never tell on the net) and might have climbed twice as far (proportionally speaking), he's also a good deal younger than me — so fuck him for grinning.

Uh oh.

(And as for Beethoven, I'd go Wagner. Or Pink Ployd.)

Whirlochre said...

Last time I Wagnered, I fell off the horse.

sylvia said...

I started to write down a really good joke and then I realised it only worked spoken.

So, aren't you glad I noticed?

Or as a tangential reaction, should we do a voice post of a joke so you know what it was?

(I will almost certainly change my mind in the meantime though!)

...another flaw with my plot
It has too many steps?
Sx

Robin S. said...

I'm flummoxed not with my plot but with blending words from a chapter I wrote two years ago with stronger words I have now. It's driving me crazyyyyyyyyy.

I agree with Sylvia, by the way...we should do a funny voice post (I suck at jokes, though, and telling them, so maybe I'll just read something that strikes me funny).

Whirlochre said...

We definitely need something funny, even if it isn't jokes.

It's gone very wintry here all of a sudden and misery fills the air.

stacy said...

I suggest something comforting, like steaming tea drunk from a mug with a chipped handle.

As for music, lots of Arvo Part. Or Phillip Glass. Not a huge fan of Glass, but his stuff is good for writing.

Or - heh - John Cage's 4'33.

Whirlochre said...

Arvo Part, I haven't heard of.

But his name sounds like the punchline of a joke, so I'll look him up.

Currently getting by with Robert Fripp. As is Toyah Wilcox, so I hear...

stacy said...

He's good! In your joke, remember to say "Ah-vo Peart."

Another composer that's good for writing is Elgar. And Samual Barber's Adagio for Strings. Oh yeah, and Stravinsky's Symphony of Psalms.

I do think certain Beethoven pieces work, such as the Moonlight Sonata and his ever-popular Fur Elise. But his symphonies are too busy.

Whirlochre said...

Thanks Stacy.

I know what you mean about busy. When I'm writing, if I have music on at all, I prefer it to be almost ignorable.
