Lost in Writer Space
On the bright side, in my antihistamine and heavy-duty aspirin-induced drug haze, I wrote a killer ending to my current manuscript and returned to writing another book that I started over a month ago. I think there's something to be said for a numbed mindset and writing breakthroughs. Perhaps pain really does positively influence writing after all?!
No gain without pain has new meaning for me.
In other desert news, Craig and I rented two really good movies Saturday night that I have to pass along because I love unexpected surprises: YOUNG VICTORIA and THE LOSERS. Two totally different movies but worth the price of a rental. I hadn't read very good reviews for YOUNG VICTORIA and, as usual, I'm glad that I ignored them. I loved the scenery and the love story, and I thought the actor who played Prince Albert was perfect in his role. A completely different movie, THE LOSERS is based on a comic book (who knew?). Lots of blow-it-up action with the good guys winning in the end. Jason Patric stole the show. The writing was superb, and it was filled with so many great lines. Great fun, in a dark sort of way.
