"That's why I write, because life never works except in retrospect. You can't control life, at least you can control your version." Chuck Palahniuk (Stranger Than Fiction: True Stories)

I normally leave quotes and debates on that kind of topic to my old friend -- he's the one that seems to think it would be a good idea to write up my life as some novel. Why, I have absolutely no idea, but making all of his notes and drafts have kept him entertained all this time so it's worth it. I do wonder how much of it he's going to have to scrap, to have anyone believe it or to keep me from levels of embarrassment I don't really want to ever see again.

But... I don't think I agree all that much with the quote. Maybe if I wrote fiction I'd have a different opinion.

--yes, I know you're all laughing at the idea. So am I.

From where I stand, though, life makes even less sense in retrospect than it did the first time through. At least while it's hitting the fan you're not dealing with other people's second-guessing what you do.

At least as far as I've seen, or experienced.

Dear Mun,

I've noticed that you have not updated your journal masked_merc (i.e., responded to one of the TM topics) for the past four topics. NOTE: Roleplay does not count as updating your journal, per the rules of the Theatrical Muse community.

If you have responded to one of the last four TM topics and I missed your post, please forward the link to me. If you have not responded to a challenge, but would still like to continue participating in TM, please do the following:

1. REPLY TO THIS NOTE

2. RESPOND TO ONE OF THE MOST RECENT 4 TOPICS (#280,281,282,283) BY NO LATER THAN 21st May 2009.

3. FORWARD THE LINK OF YOUR POST TO ME.

Otherwise I will remove your muse from the TM community.

If you are having trouble meeting this commitment, but you still do want to remain in the TM community, please let me know and I will see what I can do. Real life always takes precedence over fannish activities. We just need to know that you are still interesting in remaining a member of the TM community, and get some idea of when you may be able to participate again. If you do need a hiatus, please let me know when you think that you will be able to participate again. We can put your muse on hiatus for that time period. If another member requests the character during that time period, we will email you to see if you still wish to participate in TM. At the end of the indicated hiatus period, we will also email you to see if you wish to participate in the TM community. At that time, if you do not respond and/or update your journal, we will remove your muse from the community.

You can find a list of the most recent challenges here:
