I’ve caught the Merlin bug, and it’s reminding me of everything I love about Arthurian legends. It’s also reminding me of how much I love the fantastic, the magical, and the sprawling stories of characters who grow up under strife.
I need to write a story like this one. That’s what it’s reminded me. I have to write something of my own.
Why can’t NaNo be over? (It can, I just haven’t finished writing the story yet…)
One of my favorite times in life comes when I’ve watched an episode of Sherlock (BBC) or Doctor Who and just want to write something that feels brilliant. In that moment, nothing else matters except being brilliant and being magnificent.
I firmly believe that the Doctor makes people want to be better.
I should go into psychology, or something that has to do with analyzing the human mind.
Why didn’t I think of this sooner?
I come back last night feeling like I’ve conducted a therapy session, only I don’t want to become a therapist, because I might have to prescribe drugs, and I don’t want to do that. Idealy, people will learn to deal with their own problems by facing them and fessing up, or talking themselves through whatever’s troubling them. Again, that’s the ideal. We know that’s not going to happen. I don’t want to have to go through chemistry just to become a therapist. Maybe I could be a psychoanalyst.
Two things in life have always fascinated me: writing and why humans do what we do/ the way humans think/ the things that go on in human heads. You get my drift.
The point is, what am I doing being a teacher? Yes, kids are great. They’re fantastic! Teaching isn’t my dream job - I’m too curious.
I should’ve figured this out a long time ago. I knew it was there, it just wasn’t on my list of “possible jobs” when I graduated, a list I’d been tacking to my wall since I was old enough to know what things I would really like to do that I’d also be good at (the first being “writer,” but teaching was a constantly presented job that seemed very reasonable to me. Natural, even.).
How could I have missed this?
“Because you’re an idiot. No, don’t think too much into it, almost everyone is.”
Begins right after Rubicon ends!
I can already sense the arrogance. *shudder*
