Here I plan to play around, and post up stuff about various things; mostly writing, origfic, fanfic, beads and what I’d really want to have in a Cozy Catastrophe. And Tropes. Lots and lots of Tropes.
Because seriously, Tropes are fun. Tropes provide a backbone, an inspiration for riffing on, a cultural connection for readers to get it when you write the age-old story with a new twist, or deliberately swim upstream against the conventional to break new ground. The Cammo Earrings I made above are their own twist on tropes; heck, you might call them Highly Visible Ninja earrings.
Without Tropes, A Net of Dawn and Bones would never have been written.
Then again, without NaNoWrimo, it wouldn’t have gotten written either. Anyone else out there looking forward to November?
