Today, I shall ramble...
First of all, while SF's darlings were playing naked Barbies, mine had 9 extra girls spend the
night, dressed in black, put war paint on, and rolled the neighbors houses - only the ones in which cute boys slept, of course.
In other news, I have been playing around with my second novel this month. After trying out at least six different beginnings that were not working, I picked up my favorite magical book of all time, HARRY POTTER, and decided to try working in 3rd person, past tense like my dear friend Jo :)
Viola! *magic happened* I was having a hard time getting into my MC's head, whereas I could clearly see what was happening around her. So, this way, I can watch and report from outside the scene in order to find the story. Does that make sense? I think it's going to work better. Like the famous HP, my new story is also magical so we'll see what happens.
And finally, I took the girls to see Percy Jackson today! Verdict: AWESOME! Look at little Percy - he's a hottie, no?
I think he might be the inspiration for my next MC's love interest - and speaking of inspiration... SF and I are working on a cool series of inspirational posts profiling other artists. These will include chefs, painters, clothing designers, singers and other such artsy people and what inspires them. I can't wait to find out!
That's all for now. Have a fabulous week!
