The Playground

Someone tell the characters in the Pirate Story to stop changing names please.

That being said….

An idea for a new story is brimming, geared toward a much younger audience I think, or a series of stories, sort of semi-based on some extra curricular night time college activities of mine (get your heads out of the gutter!). This is the stuff of innocent fun folks, with innocent being the key word here. The tale(s) will involve children – hence the much younger audience. They’ll be based in a playground. The working title I have is ‘The Playground’ but will change to something else once the tale(s) is/are told.

I was excited enough about the story that I sat down today and hand drew (very badly) what I remember of the fortified playground we used to go to at night during my Freshman year in college to… duh duh DUH… play tag in! Yes. Tag. Like the kind of tag you would play as kids. This fort was pretty neat, and holds quite a few fond memories.

Now, I just need to map out how I want to do this and set some goals for myself. Part of the problem with Pirates is that I haven’t set any goals at all, which will never get things written for me. The plan will be to sit down each night and dedicate a small bit of time to my writing. The key will be to stick to the schedule I set for myself. I’m pretty good at procrastinating or talking myself out of a project I really might like to do.

I’ve started a new LJ some time ago to discuss writing issues with. Eventually I’ll start posting writing stuff there. For those that are interested, the new LJ is christierose. Right now, there are no posts in it, so it’s pretty boring. Feel free to friend it!

Ha! Someone on this list actually remembers THE PLAYGROUND! That thing was fucking cool, and I think I have the layout of it right. The only part I can't remember were the two fort areas between the regular straight slide and the spiral slide, if there were ramps from there that sorta V'd down to a ramp, or if they had their own ramps. I should scan the hand drawing I did to see if you remember Kelly!

Those were some of the best nights ever, when we'd go there to just play and have fun. Dressed in all black so we wouldn't get caught and then just.... letting loose and enjoying ourselves.

Please do scan it! Not sure if I remember, but I might. :)

I miss that. Every time I see a playground even remotely similar to that, I'm all like, "Oooo. Playground."
