If you’re not watching this show, you are missing out. I’m a fan of the comic and I have to admit, I like the different direction that this show is taking. I do need to get back to the comic, I think I’m at least 4 or 5 volumes behind. Seriously – AMC is cranking out some good shows and it’s a pity that two of them are going by the wayside. Oh, well – I should cut back on my TV viewing anyways and make more room for writing. Yeah – that didn’t sound sincere to me either. 😀
I am rewriting a couple of chapters in the novel, and I have come to a bit of a crossroads. Do I make one of the members of the carnival somewhat sympathetic to Rhona in the last art of the chapter, or do I go on ahead to the next chapter and keep the carnival as a group of people that we are to dislike passionately? For now, I do not see the carnival coming back into Rhona’s life any time soon, so I don’t believe that there is a need to start to kinda-sorta humanize them. On the other part… well, no – there is no other part to it. We should keep the carnival as a group of miscreants and lowlifes. There – it’s done. We can go back to disliking them. I’m going to have a good reason for everybody to hate them in the next couple of chapters and I can’t wait to write it. Frankly, I can’t wait for this book to get done and printed. Which means I am going to have to work some more on it tonight… more coffee for me I suppose.
I still get ideas and I feverishly write them down, no matter how bad they seem to be at the time (why would someone want to be possessed?) since from some of the worst ideas I think I have, they can still be folded into something else and have a chance to shine (‘Lord of the Rings’ meets ‘Frankenstein’… really?). Never discount an idea would be the third good piece of advice I would give to aspiring writers. The first two would be: 1) read 2) write. Well, speaking of that, I should get back to the novel and get that new chapter started. I hope everyone has a good day.
