"Just a smidgen off" might be the words to use.
Well, I am hoping to slowly get back into the swing of things. Right now I'm swallowing some huge pills of Amoxicillin for a sinus infection, but I think I might be out of the woods with any other health issues. Its nice to see people still stopping in to look around even though my posting has been sporadic to say the least. I will be focusing first on returning captions to those I owe, from trade returns to fantasy football losses. From there, I'll try to visit many of my friend's blogs so I can sort of catch up on what they've been doing. I can't guarantee that I'll be posting every day (or every other day) but I should certainly be posting more than once a week I think.
I think this is the second to last caption I made before taking this slight sabbatical. I want to be able to write more captions like this .. its juicy and delicious .. even though its REALLY vague. I love working in compulsions, and its semi-obvious that some sort of post-hypnotic triggers are causing things to happen which also works wonders for me. Its also playful in a way that makes me think of "vintage Petra" in the way its presented.
I have been pretty heavily medicated a few times in the last month, so it gave me time to think from Dee Dee's POV which doesn't usually happen very often. A dulled awareness and a bit of vulnerability tends to put me in Dee Dee's frame of mind. Unless I want to become Bukowski or Rimbaud, I think I will keep away from those sorts of things and stick to my basic means of writing.
DISCUSSION QUESTION: How do you get yourself into a mindset that isn't your own? As above, I really have to be wasted, overtired, or otherwise baffled to really feel like a submissive bimbo. I can reason it out mentally and craft stories around the ideas, but it doesn't always ring true. For readers, do reading captions bring you mentally to a different place then you usually are? How much can a captioner or story writer immerse you into their situations and plot?
