The title of my blog post, I realize, can be read two ways. I don’t mean to say I’m working on my writing while I’m at work. I mean to say I’m back to squeezing in my writing before and after work. 🙂
I had said I wouldn’t be posting that much now that I’m working again (only temporarily) but since the nature of my assignment pretty much prevents me from being online at all during the workday, I find myself missing being online.
So, here I am again, posting. 🙂
It’s early Saturday morning and my plans are to go to the library, pick up some books I put on hold and then spend most of today and tomorrow reading and writing.
I was able to slide right back into my very early morning weekday writing schedule and I find that working again has made me more focused. I guess it’s knowing I don’t have all day to write that makes the time I do have to write more precious. Makes me really get down to it.
I’m itching to get back to my steampunk novella but I have to finish up some pending projects (projects I’ve finished but just need to revise or tweak) before I start anything new. So I’m mostly revising right now. But since I consider revising to be the meat and potatoes of the writing process, I’m actually doing my hard-core writing now.
The Avatar teaser trainer is up. I’ve heard that the media vultures are already circling around this movie and declaring it dead. Well, I’m going to go see it (opens December 18th) and if it entertains me and takes me to another world and doesn’t melt my eyes with too much in the way of gratuitous special effects (meaning the special effects serve the story and not the other way around), I’ll be a happy camper.
Here’s a trailer for a new Dorian Gray movie. It’s opening in the UK in September but have no idea if it’s coming to the US. May have to DVD this one if it doesn’t. Not sure if it’ll be up to the standards of the 1945 version but I’ll give it looksee whenever I get a chance to see it.
