Yesterday I totally gave in to the spring fever and planted a flat of bright yellow pansies and 2 Carolina jasmine vines for the new ladder trellises. I also cleaned up the veggie garden. Just needed to get my hands into the dirt and start prettifying things. It helped calm my racing brain and let me see where I was going wrong in the scene I’ve been working on. Whenever stuff starts to drag I know I’m doing SOMETHING wrong. I’ve learned this about myself as a writer.
I also watched Blood and Chocolate last night to get back in the right groove because I’ve actually had a bit of trouble shifting out of Mirus-world from the anthology story to get back into this world. I checked out the book last night too and started reading it this morning (thus breaking my resolution to read a paper book for every ebook ONCE AGAIN). It’s totally not like the movie at all. We’ll see which I wind up liking better.
Anyway, because it’s my birthday and I’m sleepy, I don’t have a whole lot to talk about today, so I’ll leave you with Sawyer’s theme song, which my hubby found a few weeks ago. It’s called “In Pieces” by a band appropriately named Red. I don’t usually have playlists or theme songs for my work (though a lot of my writing pals do), but this song was just SO PERFECT for Sawyer. I wound up getting all of their albums.
