Usually, I think it’s called the Friday Five, but I couldn’t think of a fifth thing, so here are four random things in no particular order:
1. Since I cut down on my Internet time for Lent, I have been spending my lunch breaks looking through old story drafts rather than mindlessly surfing the Internet. Looking through these old stories reminded me of where I want to go with the characters and the drafts, and that made me happy.
2. I am reading an excellent book called The Vision of the Anointed. My brother received it as a gift some years back and it was collecting dust in his room until I picked it up and thought it might be interesting. Practically every sentence of this book has me nodding my head in agreement, and that’s not something I can say for many books.
3. As for XIII, I’m still in a serious debate with myself as to how I want to proceed. I’m still in the “write the final draft” stage, but I’m wondering exactly how much I should cut when it comes time for editing. I need to figure out how to not think so far ahead on this one and keep taking just one step at a time.
4. I actually watched a movie this week! It was The Crow (1994), and that was what spawned my hero/antihero post. I more or less liked everything about the movie, except there were some parts that seemed to cliche and overdone. I guess that’s the case with all action movies, though.
How’s your Friday going?
