The One Hundred and Twenty-Second Post: The One Where I Tell You When I Lost My Romantic Ideals…

As dome of you might have noticed, there was no posting for last Saturday. I went to a Nanowrimo ‘write-in’ and that kinda threw off my schedule. This Saturday is more than likely going to be more of the same – writer’s group in the morning, Nanowritmo write-in in the afternoon. I see lots of coffee on that day. It’s not a complaint, I love what I do and I look forward to doing it for a living. I just am going to have to cover a lot of ground that day. Laundry and groceries might get a break and not get done until Sunday. Yes, there are 24 hour grocery stores and I am a bit of a night owl; but I am also someone that likes to have a time to pause at the end of the work week. Also, I am going to start getting stuff together for Thanksgiving dinner. I already got the turkey cutlets (might get some more just to be on the safe side) freezing for next week (gah!), so I just need to get the rest of the stuff together for the dinner. I am looking forward to this meal. Going to be one of my best… of course, my criterion for that is simple: as long as no one dies, we’re good.

The novel continues along, although I did lose a Sunday because of football. I’ll make up for that day today after work. The story is still coming along, and the end of the second act is approaching. I just hope that I haven’t been hitting people over the head with the supernatural before I am supposed to in the third act. I am having fun trying to figure out how to show just how Gail is going to perceive everything, which will color the reader’s perception of everything that happens in the book. My only big issue is that there will be someone who is going to look at the main conceit and roll his (or her) eyes and put the book back on the shelf. I know the idea is out there as far as sci-fi goes, but then again, this is also a horror novel.

Speaking of horrific things: Blood and Chrome is on YouTube! I’m not saying that Blood and Chrome is horrible, but its treatment by Sy-Fy is – especially given that the parent show was widely received – borders on war crimes. So far, I like what the YouTube channel hosting it is doing. They are the ones that put up Halo: Forward unto Dawn and I looked forward to it every Friday. Now I have something new to look forward to! I still think it’s a shame that it’s being put out almost sight unseen (my eternal thanks to for pointing it out to me). But, hey – we can see it somewhere, and we can get it on DVD and/or Blu-ray.

Well, I need to divide my attentions between “Talking Dead” and the novel. I hope everyone have a good day.
