I cleared off the DVR/cable box in the bedroom. It spontaneously decided that two of the channels I watch A LOT should be temporarily unavailable. For two weeks. Yeah, that bad puppy is going for a trade-in today. In doing so, I watched the last few episodes of SyFy’s LOST GIRL. I do like this series. A lot. And the finale had me in tears. That doesn’t happen often. The show also introduced me to a new character model. Kyle Schmid played a character named The Wanderer, who turned out to be a warrior named Rainer, who handfasted with Bo to break a curse but they ended up causing the beginning of the end and oh, man! The sacrifices that were made.
Anyway, I digress. Kyle has been in several shows, including playing vampire Henry Fitzroy in BLOOD TIES, but it was his stint as Rainer, along with the darker hair and beard, that captured my imagination. He’ll be my visual for a British SAS operative in my Hard Target series. 😉 Feel free to Google his pics, but I’ve added one of my favs below.
What else? Oh…I didn’t read much this weekend. I’ve been doing so much reading and computer work that my eyes were a bit wonky. My far vision is still not quite right, despite taking a couple of days off. Oh well.
And the last bit of news concerns COWGIRL’S SWEETHEART. There’ve been a couple of plot points that bugged the bejeesus out of me. I’ve got them figured out. I think Mr. HEd will be very happy with the solutions. And as a tease, you know that ol’ “A good friend will bail you out at 3 a.m. but a best friend will be sitting right next to you saying, ‘Damn that was fun?'” Yeah…While Cord won’t have anybody sitting next to him, he does end up in the slammer for a bit–at least until Chance can arrange bail. THAT’S going to be a fun scene to write!
So, today is post office, cable store, CP reading, and with luck, some new words on SWEETHEART. Then my plan for the rest of the week is BICHOK until I’m way closer to my 50K word goal on SWEETHEART. I’m thrilled to be starting the week of at just over 25K words. Halfway there!
What’s on your agendas this week? Oh…and here’s Kyle. You’re welcome. 😉
