Great weekend! First off, Wizard came home. He was gone all last week for work, and surprisingly, I managed to not get into any trouble. Probably because BLB appointed himself my babysitter and stayed with me all week. Usually he goes home for half the week now, but it was nice to have him here.
Saturday we had a family party to celebrate a college graduation. We really enjoyed that. Even though I have a problem understand why people order white cake for these things. Two events in a row–white cake. It just makes me sad that people don’t respect chocolate properly
Sunday Wizard was gone all day again (this time for fun, which he needed) and I worked in peace. It feels like I’m making progress. But man, in every book, I always forget what it takes to get into the character’s heads:
In the beginning, it’s all hearts and flowers as I get to know the superficial stuff about the characters. Height, weight, hair and eye color, job, dreams, goals…and at first, that all seems like enough.
Then it’s not enough.
And man, this is the hard part. I have to get inside them and poke around to the most painful parts because that is the only place I will find what truly motivates them. It’s only there I learn their fears, their pain, their darkest parts that all of us have.
Now since all these characters are created from MY imagination, guess who’s experiences I have to mine to figure this stuff out?
Why do I do this again? Because I know it’s not for the money, LOL! Hey, maybe it’s a form of therapy?
In any case, as morose as all this sounds, I’m pretty happy with the progress I’ve made!
So how was your weekend?
