This just in:

I am going to write a 'How Not to Live Life' tutorial book.

If you feel you have any valid input on how to live life inadequately, please do send me your anecdotes! If you're especially skilled in the art of foolish living, you may get a whole chapter in your name!

Don't you fear for space! I'm envisioning this as a 10-tomb series with extra supplements around the holidays. ;)

You just let me know if you want in! We can discuss and organise our own idiocy over tea and biscuits.

[/sarcastic ambiguous emo rant of beautiful cryptic proportions]

Oh, life, I so love sprinkling you in my tea every morning. But please, when are you going to start telling me each sunrise whether you've decided to be sugar or salt for the day?

I could contribute to that. Ooooooooh, could I contribute. XD

I am definitely still contributing. :D Note: being awake at 4 a.m. yet getting nothing of significance done, having convo. with professor on Monday about an essay due Friday that hasn't been started (hello, tomorrow night!) and in general being an idiot face.

I would like to stop contributing for just a little while, and be a sensible person. Oh what a hope!

Here's a first, foolproof recipe:

1 firm intention not to write up for more than two fests in a semester.
1 flisty who starts begging folks to join the Rarepair shorts
1/2 a mind to do so
1/4 moment of insanity.

Carefully mix all of the above. Retrieve the resulting assignment in your inbox and smile at the beauty of the prompts. Realise the number of days between now and January 16. Close your eyes, scream, and panic.

Put (utterly dreadful) plotline on low heat to simmer.

Procrastinate endlessly on writing the damned thing, by posting memes and commenting to flisties posts.

Panic again, make beta's lives a misery.
Decide to jump off the Astronomy Tower.

When story is finally finished, decorate with "well, after all, looking back, it was a fun thing to do."

I am in a very similar situation.

I've got the Rarepair to do for the 17th too, and I've got an essay due the 15th that has to get done first... And of course, that isn't very well started either. But I've got a meeting with my professor Monday to discuss it given that I'm entirely confused on how to go about it, so I have a feeling much of the researching/conceptualising will go on late tomorrow night.

Someday I may learn not to procrastinate. However, that lesson in life will have to be...later.

I have just stumbled upon this here perfect recipe. It is still the perfect description of the Fest Process.
