Mon. Sept. 23, 2013: Hitting the Characters’ Emotional Truths

Waning Moon
Cloudy and cold

Roller coaster weekend. I was very discouraged by Friday afternoon. Just felt like I was going in circles and not getting anywhere.

But then, I logged in Saturday morning and found some exciting news. Nothing’s set until there’s a contract in place, so I don’t want to get my hopes up — especially after I was screwed on the contract at the beginning of the month — but I hope this works out.

Wrote two reviews this weekend, worked with students, caught up on movies, started re-watching the second season of TORCHWOOD, worked in the garden, cooked, baked, cleaned the house, did laundry, wrote. Worked on a couple of articles, but am not satisfied with them, so I’m going to keep working before I send them out. Plus, I had a horrible migraine, which slowed me down.

I did some work on Project D, and have to figure out a few things, then backtracked to Project B, where, yesterday, finally, I hit my protagonists’ emotional truths — a scary moment, but an important place on which to build. Project B is turning into a very different novel than I originally imagined, but I like it much better.

Watched the Emmys last night. Wasn’t thrilled with the show. They tried too hard and fell short. They rushed the winners and had too much silly filler. The only number I liked was the one done by the choreographers.

I have a busy, hectic day, which is why I’m at my desk early.

Hope everyone has a great start to the week.

  1. Awards shows in general bother me. It seems as though they reward based on politics and not on actual accomplishments. While I love Jeff Daniels and think his character is a strong one, Bryan Cranston has demonstrated an exceptional range and delivered consistently fantastic performances on his show. He may have been passed up because he’s the popular choice, but there’s a very good reason he was the popular choice.

    Glad we didn’t stop by if you were suffering such a migraine! That storm coming through probably caused you some barometric upset —happens to a friend of mine all the time. Hope today is better.

  2. I was wondering if you know what is triggering your migraines. You’ve had quite a few lately and I’m worried about you. Keeping my fingers crossed for your possible good news.
