i hate when you’re outside and the sun


All research enquiries sound insane. Sometimes, as when you are squodging through a sewage tunnel researching Neverwhere, they seem insane to you too.

When I needed to write an autopsy in AMERICAN GODS I called my family doctor, and he turned out to have been the county prosector, and we spent a couple of hours on the phone with him answering all my questions, even the stupid ones. (“Why do you have to put the organs back in the same order you took them out?” “Because otherwise they won’t fit.” “Oh.”)

There are a LOT of books about death, dying and what happens to bodies post mortem, that you could use too. Check your library. Talk to your librarians. In my experience, they like the weird requests.*

*do not stare at them in an unsettling way while you ask, though. Try to smile, unless you have an unsettling smile.

whenever i try and learn something new

me: It seems that I am not immediately excellent at this
me: it is because I am a failure
me: everything I touch dies
