Yeah, I’m a little snarly this morning. I don’t have a lot to say. I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed as I realize I have an October 1st deadline for revisions on THE COWGIRL’S LITTLE SECRET. I’m almost to the muppet flail stage but I have a weekend before it’s due so I can hide in my writing cave for 48 hours if necessary.
Writing stuffs: I should have been working this past weekend but it was the OKRWA retreat. Ended up with only 4 of us spending the two nights at the guest house we leased, with two more coming in for the day on Saturday. It worked out great because we each got our own bedroom. We shared food, laughter, made some new in-jokes, and hopefully, the others got a kick-start of some WIPs that had stalled for them. I did a workshop on ways to jump-start a writer’s creativity to get through writer’s block. It was fun and everyone seemed to enjoy it. I tried to work on Saturday afternoon while the others did a workshop on the “Save the Cat” writing process. I worked through some minor threads but the major stuff eluded me. I did get some great ideas for WIPs that may never see the light of day due to sheer lack of time. Ah well.
TV stuffs: GOTHAM premieres tomorrow night, SLEEPY HOLLOW starts the new season, and FOREVER premiers. GOTHAM is about the beginnings of Batman and Commissioner Gordon when they were Bruce Wayne the scared kid and Detective Gordon. All the baddies are introduced in their kid/teen personas. FOREVER stares Ioan Gruffudd. It’s worth it just see him- 😆 -but the premise is interesting. He’s immortal and every time he dies–which seems to be a lot, he comes right back to the same place. He’s a pathologist with the NYC ME’s office. Then we have NCIS and NCIS New Orleans on Tuesday. Woot-woot! There’s some other shows I’m interested in that I can’t remember at the moment.
Reading stuffs: I’ve read stuff but nothing that sticks with me enough to say “GO READ THIS!” I’ll see if I can’t fix that by next week.
Other stuffs: This week’s schedule may be a little different. I want to do a blog about Saturday’s episode of OUTLANDER. And no, it probably isn’t what you think though there was Jamie butt. NAKED Jame butt! For realz!!!! Yeah. I was swooning. 😉
So how was your weekend?
