Living the life of my characters

Over the past few days, I’ve puzzled over how to portray the actions of two characters who live on Mars — Shadowgrass and Voodoo Billie — who’ve fallen in love with each other, both for the first time.

I’ve felt how confused they are, how their regularly scheduled lives have been interrupted.

I need space in my thoughts to separate myself from them so I can look at their situation from a bird’s-eye view for a while.

Yet, tomorrow the University of Tennessee plays the University of Alabama in a classic fall battle between traditional powers, the house that Neyland’s built versus the house that Bear Bryant built.

Two words: Go Vols! We true fans are behind you all the way!!!!
