I suck at writing. I watch Korean dramas instead.

I suck at writing. By which I mean, actually getting words down.

I have been singularly unsuccessful at getting any real work done on my OF manuscript - there is some mental block in my head that is just rebelling at the thought of doing any rewriting.

In the meantime, I have added very few words to AQATWA in a couple of weeks, so fail there too.

It's seriously getting to me.

I have started watching this on Netflix:

My Girlfriend is a Gumiho

Netflix is apparently starting to stream Korean dramas. My Girlfriend is a Gumiho is a manga-like paranormal rom-com. A slacker college student, in a series of improbable coincidences, releases a gumiho, or nine-tailed fox spirit (yes, the same thing the Japanese call a kitsune), from a painting where she has been trapped for 500 years. She promptly becomes a literal girlfriend from hell.

It's not exactly a high-budget production and much of it is stupid. But they do a lot with minimal special effects, and it's not all comic.

It's also rather slow-paced; the pilot episode does about as much in an hour as an American show would do in half an hour, complete with commercial breaks.

It is one of those dumb things that has temporarily hooked me. However, unless there is some real plot and character development, I doubt I am going to sit through all 16 hours (!) of this series.
