Work Room - Week 15

There's a Write-off going on, with people writing for their continued existence... in the game at least. Or at least that's what people *want* you to think, that's just just for "the game". ;) http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/1004049.html

There is also the new topic for the survivors and everyone else remaining! http://therealljidol.livejournal.com/1004469.html


I was thinking about the times I've taken bits and pieces of pieces that didn't quite work and used them in something that ended up being a lot better, even if it wasn't the "original intent" for it.

What are some of the things you have been able to do that with?

I'm delighted and excited about this week's prompt. You see I have been thinking about a character I created for last year's mini season, Darn Girl. I've been hoping I would last long enough to revisit her, and her world.

Thank you, Gary. This is, for me, the perfect prompt at the perfect time. Yipee!

I'm stumped on the topic. I read it to yamyam_kat before bed, and her response was, "This will be hard."

I guess quilts come to mind, but I don't sew, so is there another meaning?

yup, this is the only topic i'm not having any ideas for yet :\

I guess quilts come to mind, same and thus far nothing's inspiring me re; quilts haha

I think this Zen pencil comic could be helpful :http://zenpencils.com/comic/103-c-s-lewis-to-love-at-all/

There are also some lyrics that I found

that comic is so cute <3

i thought of the figurative meaning too and how whenever you love something you're going to be hurt one way or another, but wasn't finding it inspiring either :(

i've considered one rough possibility, but i feel like it was a very obvious thought that would occur to a lot of people given that prompt, which makes me want to come up with something more original. hopefully i'll pull something out of the hat!

Well patchwork is different than quilting, though I suppose it could be used as a kind of quilting. When I think of patchwork, I think of old blue jeans that have been ripped many, many times and are covered in patches of various colours and textures of fabric. It's more haphazard than quilting...perhaps crazy-quilts?..the sewing of scraps of fabric onto a base piece of fabric to create a collage of mismatched bits and pieces.

How can a heart be like that? If we think literally, through surgeries. Figuratively, how many times can a heart be broken, mended, and remain whole? How do you patch up a heart from all the little breaks and bruises and catastrophes we endure? In the future, maybe a heartache could be treated medically? Maybe we already do that with self-medication?

Hope this helps.

"Patchwork" always makes me think of the Patchwork Girl of Oz. Not sure how that could be helpful, though.

It brings up Sally from 'The Nightmare Before Christmas' for me. And the fact that *every* *single* *man* I've been romantically involved with (and a few who would have liked to have been) have compared me to that character at some point. It started out flattering, then became ludicrous, then maddening, and now it's a Thing between me and the spousebeast and I don't mind it at all.

And I may have just outlined my piece. Hmmm...

I might need to use my last bye. I have ideas, but nothing is going from in my head to on paper (or screen).
