I have a character who kills herself…

at first it was by pills…and the blade…but the more i think about it, the more i want to change it…and yes, i do spend a considerable amount of time pondering some of life’s more gruesome realities…this is the work that i choose…

anyway, i’m beginning to reconsider her method…for the following reasons…

too generic…maybe i watch too many movies, but this seems to be the preferred method of suicidal girls in the 20th century…really…all i need is a bathtub of hot water and Michael Stipe in the background wailing…everybody hurts…

the other reason i want to change it is…i like this character…if she has to die…yes, she does…and if it has to be by her own hand…yes, again…i want it to have some meaning…yet not be dramatic just for the sake of drama…

besides…i have an idea…something i’ve noticed for a long time, and just realized how i can write about it…

but i bring this up here because i want to hear your thoughts…and reactions…

like i said…this is the work…

on a completely unrelated note…

i pick up business cards…really…you don’t want to see the stack of bent, crumpled, and completely irrelevant business cards i’ve collected over the years…

but…

i would have never encountered these wonderful artist websites if I hadn’t picked up some random card…
