Two weeks. Two Weeks… TWOOOO WEEEEKKKKKSSS!!
Yes, it really has been two weeks since my last post.
Bad writer, bad *smack*
Shame on you if you didn’t get the above Total Recall reference…well actually I’ll let you off if you were just in too much of a stupor to notice. A stupor brought on by the fact they are remaking Total Recall…with Colin Farrell…and not setting it on Mars…WTF??
I’m going to put some ORIGINAL Total Recall pictures in this post just to pay tribute to a great film and let you know I’m totally against the remake. Evil, evilHollywood.
So I’ve finally managed to pull my finger out and crack on with the end of my novel. Since I wasn’t really getting anywhere starting at the last sentence I wrote and hoping the rest of the book would magically appear I decided to take the proactive approach and write out a brief synopsis of what could occur during the last 20k words.
It worked out pretty well.
I now know where the story needs to go to progress and hopefully that means I’ll be able to do more than just sit with my fingers over the keys of the keyboard head banging to Planet Rock.
I’m desperate to finish the first draft of this novel before November so I can put it away for a while and concentrate on NaNoWriMo. The trouble is the closer it gets to the end of the year the more I want to run around singing about Halloween and NaNo.
I’m easily distracted.
You could say I’m like two people(?)
But at least with a plot I feel like I’m back on track. I have a destination in mind and I just have to fill in a few blanks along the way…why it’s almost like been driven by a Johnny Cab!!
Before I had this synopsis/guideline to refer to writing felt a bit like this:
Now all I need is a clever way of setting up the three-boobied lady pic…sod it, BOOOOOOBSS!!
