(Or, rather, challenge The Dying Muse*.)

So here's the deal: I want to write. And I'm pretty sure The Dying Muse does, too. But she just doesn't seem to like any of MY current ideas. So, I think she is requesting a swift kick in the pants. (Which I'd be happy to give her, but it wouldn't help.) What she needs right now is inspiration, and that's where I hope YOU come in. yes, you!

Give me a prompt. A few words, song lyrics, thoughts, whatever. Something that'll maybe get her going. If you'd like to see it with a particular fandom that you know I like, feel free to request it. (Your best bets on not-totally-shitty writing are Xena, BSG, or Alias. Just BTW.) Or if you don't care and just want to light a fire under her ass, then give me carte blanche and I'll try to run with it.

(*Dying Muse, if you missed it - which is entirely possible since it just kinda happened - is apparently the identity of my ficcy muse. I think it's apropos in a few ways. For one, she DOES seem to die a lot. She goes away for long stretches of time. For another, I like to make people die in my fics. Big fan of the mass murder. [I once killed the entire cast of Alias in a 25-chapter-epic-slaughter. {And one of the best parts was a review on an early chapter saying 'I'm glad her world is coming apart, it means things can only get better.' Hee!} Ahem.] So yeah, all in all, I think it's a good name for her. Maybe she'll stay healthy for a bit and not go die on me right now.)

What'd you think of it? And remind me, have you read the book?

I hadn't thought of writing them before... that could be interesting.

general prompts: when we touch I swear I can fly, her first rainbow, when I grow up

Pre-series Kara Thrace tends to inspire me.

Allow me to narrate, briefly, my reaction there:

*blink* Wha...? *blink*

You so twisted. But it certainly is intriguing. And I have to leave for work in 10 minutes, so THANKS A LOT, I KNOW WHAT I'LL BE DOING ONCE I MAKE MY COFFEE.

"Whassat, boss? OH, I'm just writing... another SOP! What? Oh, frak, right. You're my boss, so you know those are done already... uhhhhhhh...."
