Sorry it’s been so long since my last update. I’ve been busy with mom stuff. It seems I no sooner get done with my morning activity — playdate, PTO meeting or just errands — before it’s time to wolf down lunch and go pick up one kid or another. So I’ve not had much time to explore any of my thoughts in depth, but here are a couple things that have occurred to me over the past week.
1. I’m glad I got to see the the new Sherlock Holmes. Robert Downey Jr. was brilliant, but I really enjoyed Jude Law’s portrayal of an updated, completely non-fuddy duddy Dr. Watson. The movie had a little too much action, a little too little story, but it was fun, and I think that’s what it’s intended to be.
2. Speaking of movies, I’m really looking forward to the new A-Team movie. I saw the trailer and it was like the old television show on a much bigger budget. And it never hurts to have Liam Neeson in a movie, even if this is a surprising choice for him.
3. Still plugging away at the edits on my novel. Hope to have them complete within a week. After that, I plan to get back to writing, if I can just pick one of my many projects-in-progress. Seems these days the smart writers are writing about vampires, werewolves, zombies or time travel. One of my projects actually does incorporate one of those, so maybe I’ll go with that one. I’ve written about all four in the past and never been successful, so wish me luck.
4. I’m also planning to take over as interim fiction editor of Dark Recesses online literary magazine in February. I haven’t had a regular job as a fiction editor since edifice WRECKED, and I’m a little nervous about the schedule necessary. If you want to visit me over there, you can find it here: Dark Recesses.
