fun-fact!
Fun-fact: In Touch the World, that scene starting from when Noin left her room after being busted out by the boys, through the run out of the base and halfway through their escape in that shuttle, was written with pen and paper while sitting in a jury pool waiting room.  I may have imagined it, but I think I got strange looks from people.  Or at least people were bored enough to wonder what the heck I was scribbling in that little notebook.  I write small, and was writing with deliberate near-illegibility so no one would be able to read over my shoulder.

This week's fun fact brought to you by the fact that yes, still in the final throes of being busy at work, but also because I've got the next short ready to be written, but I'm on call for jury duty again this week, and if I get called, I want something to do while I'm sitting there waiting for nothing to happen.

How very productive of you! I should remember that the next time I get called. ^____^

Especially since I think knitting needles are outlawed in the courthouse these days, aren't they?

Ha, that year, I didn't exactly have a choice... You may recall I was pressed for time with Touch.  Even if that was relatively early on in the story, I didn't have time to waste sitting there doing nothing!

Last time I was summoned, there was a whole laundry list of things that weren't allowed and knitting needles were on the list. Then I get there and discover a woman walking around with knitting needles! >_< Annoyed the hell out of me. She had wooden needles; I'll bet they didn't show on the x-ray scanner. I'll be taking my wooden needles next time. ^___~

Your powers of concentration totally win. I can't even write with the TV on! O.o

I wouldn't be able to either... good thing the jury room is so damn boring. x_x Then again... I'd rather get stuck in there for a day than get called to serve for a week or something. >_>
