What a to-do to die today...

I'm stymied in regards to my plot, so I'm turning again to research for inspiration. After all, reality is stranger than fiction.

Unfortunately, the libraries around here have only very outdated books on genetic theory (as in, books that are older than I am), so in order to read more on personality genes, I'd have to order a few titles, and since I have no money... The library does have a few books on the history of book banning, including one that looks particularly interesting and relevant to my story: The Wall: Growing Up Behind the Iron Curtain.

Therefore, my to-do list today:
~ DO LAUNDRY! (or else I'll be smelly for the remainder of this week)
~ A trip to the library...
~ Wal-Mart (I know it's an evil corporation, but I need to restock on bottled water, seeing as we have no kitchen at the moment)
~ Learn another speech or two for The Bad Seed. I have nearly all of my lines memorized, but I am having trouble remembering the telephone calls and the scenes with my father. By the end of this week, I should be entirely off-book.

Hopefully by tomorrow, I will have developed an intricate plot with all the necessary social and psychological elements, but we shall see.

Eleven days 'til the eleventh month...

Seriously I'm freaking out now that the deadline is fast approaching.

I'm sort of stumped for the exact plot, but I have characters and a rough idea.

We needs to talk or something. Is it better to call you on the weekends?
