The Things That Unblock Me

status: I feel awesome today! Weather’s finally cooling down some. W00t!

Last night Hero Material and I went out. I was feeling restless because I was stuck on WIP. I had the basic story arc for my h/H, but I had no idea what was going on with my villain. After weeks of tinkering with the story, I was getting mighty frustrated.

So as we were sitting at a bar, I kept thinking about my story and suddenly blurted out, “Do you think you can salt human heads? You know, to preserve them for several years so you can give them to someone as presents?”

Hero Material looked totally grossed out. The piece of chicken between his chopsticks stopped moving toward his mouth, and he stared at me with a what-the-heck-are-you-talking-about expression on his face.

Oh that poor man.

But that little thing — salted human heads — got me thinking about other possibilities that I hadn’t considered. Some members of Romance Divas gave me some pointers on how to preserve human heads as well. Special thanks to Kim Knox and Ayla for fabulous suggestions.

P.S. I’m glad nobody at the bar spoke English. Otherwise somebody might have called the police.

    Poor HM.

    But if you did get arrested, think of the fodder for a future book!

    You don’t even get a phone call here. And no a/c in jail. I can’t survive an hour w/o a/c here in summer. No way. :oops:

    You must think: I will suffer for my art!

      I don’t want to get deported.

    That is an unassailable argument.

      Esp. when the country has a rule that says once you’re deported, you can’t come back for 10 years even as a tourist.
