…Wow that’s a lot of paper.
Ahem. I imagine most writers would say that. But it is a lot of paper. I’ve been working on my zpoc practice of “clearing out unneeded stuff” for the past few days, and already cleared out one large bag of no-longer-relevant. Plus some glass float paperweights. No idea where those came from. Really. I don’t do breakables….
Local library bookstore thought they were cool, though!
So… I think this is helping me figure out a successful zpoc/monster apocalypse survivor.
First – said survivor needs to be at least semi-organized, so that in the event of a bug-out the Critical Stuff is where she can find it.
Second – Survivor needs to be stubborn. And persistent over the long-term. Getting organized is not happening in the space of an afternoon. Or even a few afternoons.
Third – Survivor needs to be living on her own or remarkably immune to odd looks from friends and family. Especially the dazed blinks of “why are you doing this again?”
(I’m actually at an advantage here. All I have to say is, “research for a book!” They generally shake their heads and stop asking.)
Fourth – Survivor should be good at breaking big tasks down into small subtasks. Because the whole scenario is overwhelming to the point you just want to hide with books and chocolate. So… break it down to “clean this square foot, sweep it, move on”.
I’m sure more will come to me as I persist at this.
Oh, and I also figured out part of what the bunnies are poking as the root of this Idea. At least 2 sources involved would be Changeling: the Lost, and Ghost Slayers Ayashi.
…Seriously, weapons from words, how can any writer resist….
