As far as updates go, this will probably be brief. I haven’t gotten too much done on the writing front this week. I did start working on the 2YN story again, and finished up the chapter where Samantha finds the help she needs to complete her spell. It was really quite easy to slip back into her voice/character, much easier than I expected. Then, today, I finished up another chapter on the NaNo story. It actually turned out to be a couple thousand words, which surprised me. It didn’t feel like that much. This story is on the downhill slide now, moving towards the climax. I don’t quite have a feel for that yet, so I guess it’s a good thing I’ve got a little bit to work up to it. I haven’t done any work on the zombie story this week. I started to, a couple of days ago, then realized the scene I was supposed to write had to be from Moya’s POV. And since I’m not writing Moya’s POV, I couldn’t very well write that scene. Dang it. It would have been fun, too. So now I have to come up with something else to write. I’ll do that tonight.
I haven’t even been doing much reading. I finished up the Earthsea trilogy, and I’m currently reading the anthology Holidays Are Hell, with stories from Kim Harrison, Lynsay Sands, Marjorie M. Liu, and Vicki Pettersson.
Toady I went and saw I Am Legend. I liked the movie a lot, despite the fact that it made me cry. Twice. I got the book as a Christmas gift, but I wanted to watch the movie before I read it. (Afraid the movie would spoil the book.) It was kind of dark, and depressing, since he was the only man left alive in New York City. I can see humanity destroying itself with something like that, so that part scared me. Of course, I don’t like scary movies, and this one kind of fell on the border for me. (Yes, things that go bump in the dark qualify as scary for me.) I’ll probably be paranoid for a while when going outside in the dark. Me and my overactive imagination. I know it’s a good thing for a writer to have, but it’s a little unsettling when you’re always imagining vampires or werewolves are about to get you!
