TV, Babies, Daycare, Rehab... What?!

BBC's The White Queen with Max Irons & Rebecca Ferguson

Feels like a lot has happened this week. New Day Job--well, sort of new; I've been there almost 2 months--Little Man got moved to a new class with all the big kids (the room totally reminds me of the daycare in the last Toy Story, no lie), BBC's The White Queen has been kicking butt 'n taking names, Jonathan Rhys Meyers plays Dracula in an upcoming NBC series that looks AWESOME, Will and Kate had a baby, Amanda Bynes finally (finally!!!!!!) got admitted for her... um... issues (and yet her Twitter feed's like a bad train wreck; you just can't look away), Lana Del Rey's dissin' on Lady GaGa...

Speaking of Lana... Le Muse is LOVING her at the moment. The BBB's--Born to Die, Blue Jeans, & Blue Velvet--have been repeating on the iPod, inside the Mini Coop, and at work via Spotify constantly for the past fortnight. If you haven't given her a listen, do it now, now, now. And disregard the fact that my CP calls her Miss Depression. 

The lovely Lana Del Rey

Which leads me to... how much I'm loving my story. And, no, technically I shouldn't have driven into this topic after the word depression, because this novel is anything but depressing. At least, I don't think it is. Glad we got that straight. Back to the point: Totally Diggin' It. I mean, we're writers; we SHOULD love our stories. But, honestly, sometimes you wanna just chuck it out the window. Sometimes you wanna chuck the whole LAPTOP out the window, because, darn it, why can't this blasted novel just write its own darn self?!!

Yeah.

So.

Lovin' the story. This is the YA, Sci Fi, Historical yet, at the same time, Contemporary, first person, heroine's PoV tale that I started over a year ago, got to... oh... chapter 12 or so and said, "Eh."  Well, I've rekindled my fascination with prim, proper, spunky, 19th century bombshell (wow, that was a lot of adjectives... sorry!) Hallelujah and her quest to help futuristic Adris find a cure for our dying human race. It's got a love triangle. Hopefully plenty of page-turning tension and adventure. 

Check out my character interviews here and here.

So, what's been up with you guys? Are you as stoked as me and my BFF over the royal baby? Lovin' his name? Wonder what sobriquet the public will come up with for him. Should be fun, regardless. 

Kate, Wills, & Baby George Alexander Louis

Happy Weekend, Lovies.

Peace, Love, and Junior Mints,

I didn't actually know his name until I got to the end of your post. Yeah, that shows you how into it I am.

Glad you like your story! Even if I am on an anti-1st, right now. As long as it's not also present tense, I'll probably be okay.

LOVE the White Queen. I am also gearing up for Dracula, JRM as a vampire, need I say more? I mean it's like someone read my ultimate fan girl fantasy or something.

ROYAL BABY! You know I was all up on that coverage. Hail King George!

YAY Jake, in the big kids room now!

And I love that you are in love with your current WIP! <3

Lela said...

YAY for being in love with your stories! I've been caught up with mine, too. It's a good feeling.

AW, Jake! :) He's growing up so darn fast!

I haven't seen White Queen, yet - I want to. I've been seeing the commercials. We're caught up with Big Bang Theory at the moment, which I AM LOVING, by the way! Too many shows and not enough time in the day.

@Andrew Anti-first? How come?? And it's OK if you didn't know his name. I've been English-history crazy since childhood, and I'm not so sure that's a good thing.

@Bonnie Isn't it great? And Max Irons... Wow. Speaking of writing and WIPs... Rumor has it you've got a new release! *squeeeee*

@Lela That's awesome! So happy you're rekindling the writing love. Sometimes I think it's a blessing and a curse. Big Bang is the bomb. One of the best comedies on TV, and that's saying something.

Because too many people writing in first person, right now, are using it as an excuse to have, basically, bad writing. Anything that's wrong with the manuscript can be "blamed" on it being the voice of the character.
