I wonder what it says about me as a person that I watch the latest episode of Glee, read some fic (Glee fic, why you such a terrifying rabbit hole), and then immediately think 'why is there not a Gossip Girl AU where Sebastian is Serena and Blaine is Blair?'.

I'm just sayin'. I'm just putting that out there.

ETA: Although that would make Kurt who, exactly? Chuck Bass? Dan Humphrey?


the ultimate dilemma: write porn or write essay?
title: at the top or at the end of the world
author: fiona shaw
word count: 372 words
works remixed: Pip Adams - The Anzac Centenary Bridge, Cheryl Bernstein - This is about earthquakes, Lynn Jenner - She used to ask me, what is it like up there?

Writer's Block: The state of perception

Of the five senses (sight, sound, touch, smell and taste), which would you willing to give up, and why?

So I'm going to try this thing where I answer each Writer's Block with a short drabble. So here we go. These are completely unbeta'd - they are just writing exercises.

Research Please Please Answer?

I have some questions.

I've been talking to friends of mine lately about the state of the NZ publishing industry and NZ Literature, and I am now wondering:

Non-NZ: Have you ever read a book by a NZ author?

If yes, who was it by, and how did you hear about them? Did you enjoy it? Where did you get it - bought, a gift, library etc? Would you buy more books by NZ authors? How would you prefer to get hold of them? How much would you be willing to pay?

If no, would you want to read one? What would you like to read about? How much would you pay for it?

NZ: Have you ever read a book by an NZ author? Why/why not? Who? How did you hear about it/them? Would you want to, if you have not read one? Why/why not? What would you want to read? How much would you pay? How would you want to access it?

Our general perception is that NZ Literature is not popular locally or overseas. In terms of overseas, I am curious to know whether people can't access NZ Lit but want to, haven't heard of it, or have and don't like it, or some other option. I am also curious to know what locals (NZ and potentially Australia) who generally have access, think of NZ Lit. Access is probably less of an issue here, but is there some other issue? Do people read books by locals? Why/why not?

If any of you are willing, I'd be really grateful if you could pass this on to your f-lists too.
Sometimes I think my mind is pretty awesome.

I finally got around to watching the season finale of Merlin Season 3 (both parts), and then I went to bed and pretty much dreamed the whole episode verbatim, except all the Arthur/Gwen bits were Merlin/Arthur. It was awesome. Now I need fic.
