Did you write this weekend?
Have your works in progress stalled on the battlefield of life? What do you do when your characters ‘sleep?’
The absolute crap on the news obfuscates my creative side. For the first time in years, I parked it on the couch and watched the TV. People look at me strangely when I say I don’t really watch TV. Some of their observations are valid. I know nothing of Game of Thrones. I hear that it ended terribly, but that is hearsay.
Does it sound snobby when I say, “I don’t watch TV?” I don’t mean for it to.
I do read quite a bit. The reasons are apparent. I started a book the other day that the author’s style is engaging. He writes in fragments that I am positive would cause the spell and grammar checkers to vomit.
I had considered that style before and rejected it. What I liked about it was you very quickly discovered you were turning pages at a rapid cadence. Pacing is essential, and so is varying sentence length. Our brains look for patterns, whether you know it or not. What are your thoughts? I want to hear from you.
On a totally different topic, if you have read any of my stuff, you know that I not only support the folks that are of the ‘free the nipple’ crowd but, I side with the AANR. I know it is very liberal, but it is just the way I am built. Bettie Page, although slightly nuts, was an inspiration to me. I agree with her on so many levels, hence my book, Land of my People.
With Spring right around the corner and daylight savings time starting on the 8th, here in Texas anyway, I am in hopes of spending some time catching up on getting some vitamin D going, or just possibly giving my dermatologist something to do.
In the news, there was a lady who was topless in her own house.
Again I don’t see breasts as lewd. Anyway, her step kids saw her, and I guess it went to court. FFS!
I don’t know who brought the case or who the judge was, but I would have tossed it out. Had she been totally nude and doing inappropriate things ok, you crossed a boundary. Topless in your own home…I don’t get it. If that judge spent any time at Hippy Hollow in Austin, I dare say he would need a new pacemaker.
I suppose the fact that I am an artist has a lot to do with it. I see the beauty in the human form. Yes, all body types. Not just the twenty-year-olds.
Are you ever tempted to right wrongs in your writings?
I spent the better part of the day getting my ‘books’ different kinds of books ready for the CPA. It is all sorts of fun remembering the year through numbers. Yes, they tell a story too.
Last but least, has talk of the newest doomsday virus got you worried?
The markets are sure to respond to it. Never mind the brain-eating amoeba, flesh-eating bacteria, or the ever gruesome Ebola, now we have a virus that looks like something out of science fiction.
I hope you had a super weekend and for those of you looking at Monday, Happy Monday! I still have an hour of the weekend left… -TW
