And other stinging insects.

  • Age 8: I sat on a bee at a party; I'd gone into the woods behind the house and sat on a log. I never saw the bee.
  • Age 10: I sat on a yellow jacket at a friend's picnic table. When I jumped up, the yellow jacket crawled onto the deck and my friend's dog ate it.

For a long time, I thought that would be it, but then...

  • Age 24: I was standing near a yellow jacket hole when my mother set it on fire; one of the yellow jackets apparently escaped and stung my arm.
  • Age 25: A wasp crawled in my closed window and hid under my pillow; when I moved the pillow in my sleep, it stung me.

I need some inspiration for National Novel Writing Month. I thought maybe a list like this would help me write.

  • character-based fiction
  • characters I love, hate, and/or fear
  • fascinating personalities and backstories
  • complicated relationships
  • suspense, tension, excitement
  • roller-coaster stories
  • when "this can't get any worse" does
  • flawed characters
  • asexual women
  • unexpected surprises - present and past
  • strong and intense emotions
  • characters who clash with each other
  • differences made clear
  • conflict! a lot of conflict!
  • ...and even more conflict

All of these are things I really want to write. Now all I need to do is write them.

This is a List Your Self list, which is more like things I would miss if I happened to die. I have a lot of reasons to love my life.

  • Food. Food is amazing and delicious. I take such immense pleasure in eating, spending time with people over food, and cooking. I enjoy trying new things when it comes to food, but I also like returning to my old favorites now and then.
  • Companionship. Being around people has become an essential part of my life. I can't imagine spending all my time alone as I used to. I look forward to meeting new people, hearing new things, and spending time with the people whose company I enjoy.
  • Family. I don't know what they'd do without me. I don't know what I'd do without them.
  • Exercise. Exercise makes me feel good. Walking is my favorite and I walk all over....

I don't know about meaning the most to me, but I would have trouble escaping from these rituals.

  • My breakfast ritual is eating a tiny bowl of cereal and having a bagel two hours later. I get really hungry if I don't eat the bagel afterward.
  • My computer ritual is to turn it on, open Rhythmbox, open Firefox, and check first Listography and second Gmail.
  • My bagel ritual is taking a plate down to the basement freezer, bringing my bagel up to the kitchen, and preparing it. I microwave it for 50 seconds, add margarine, and then microwave it for 56 seconds. Then I eat it while reading the newspaper or a magazine.
  • My bedtime ritual is turning on my fan, brushing and flossing my teeth, making my bed, changing into my pajamas, and putting on chapstick. Then I set my alarm clock...
