Still Son. I'm supposed to return this stack of books to the library in the next week or two so I should probably get on that. I miss the days when I used to be able to roar through a book in a matter of days, even hours.
What I'm Writing:
The holiday weekend threw a wrench in my plans to have Weredragon's polish done before today. I do only have six more chapters to go, though, so it shouldn't be much longer. After that, I'll take a look at the three trunked manuscripts I have in need of revisions to see if those spark anything and I do have a new idea if I can figure out how it starts.
What Inspires Me:
My mom and I went hiking over the holiday weekend and the deep valleys and thick trees reminded me of the inspiration being Weredragon. It was another hiking trip, up north, where Weredragon is actually set. We came across a deep valley with animal bones scattered around it. All it took was the thought "What if a dragon lived here?" and I had a story.
What Else I've Been Up To:
I watched The Normal Heart, an HBO movie about the early years of AIDS, on Monday. I highly, highly recommend it but be aware that it is not by any means a light movie. I made the mistake of watching it just after I woke up and cried the rest of the day. Mark Ruffalo and Matt Bomer are incredible.
Also, I did watch X3: The Last Stand last week and I think it's negative reputation is overstated. I don't really want to watch it again because pain but it's not a bad movie.
