UP

Okay – so we saw UP. I’m thinking it may be a five-star film. I need to see it again to be certain, though. This film was made for 3D. Husband, the film guy, could tell you how the 3D was used as a cinematic something-something to express emotion when the action was feverish or […]

Summer starts Now – Ready… Go!

Hooray for the last day of school! Everyone was up early, dressed and with hairs bee-utiful before 6.30. It’s like the first day of school, but better – because nobody has to go back tomorrow.

WIP semi-trauma Ramblings

Yeah! A thousand words before kids are up. I should do more, I know, but I have this tiny problem. At half-way through my first draft, I still don’t know exactly what my main character wants. Oops. It seems clear that she wants to be accepted, but that’s already fine. Because even though the people […]

Dead Muse Update

I know how you were all concerned. I won’t leave you wondering. The Muse returned this morning. Turns out she really likes to have me to herself – first thing in the morning, when all the house is quiet. So I get a thousand words put in, and I even know what to write next […]
