"If we had a keen vision and feeling of all ordinary human life, it would be like hearing the grass grow and the squirrel's heart beat, and we should die of that roar which lies on the other side of silence." - from George Eliot’s Middlemarch
So I'm really making an effort to revive this journal. I'm starting to dust and clean out all the forgotten spots. And I keep feeling like I need to change the layout. It just seems so depressing even though I love the artwork i made for it and all the T.S. Eliot quotes. (How can you go wrong with T.S. Eliot?)
Still I want the journal style to reflect the journal's interests. (Okay, the trained web designer in me wants the journal to reflect it's main topic.) I think the layout needs to express the fact that I am primarily going to use this journal for fannish things. They'll be fan fiction, icons, squee, discussions, meta etc.
So I am stumped on the layout.
My primary fandom, years ago, was X-Men movieverse, but my interests are so much more diverse than that now. I am always skipping around and consuming different TV shows, movies, and books.
Lately, I'm watching Mad Men. That might make a good theme, since the show is just so pretty.
