OK… it’s been a few days (alright, about a week… lots of things going on) since my last update. My writing projects have been staggeringly sparse (in case you couldn’t tell)… I’ve been thinking a lot, just not putting pen to paper. I’ve been reading a lot, and watching a lot (of movies, granted), and trying to be social.
In other projects, I’ve finally gotten some of the “frequent public rooms” into a state of easy maintenance (or, at least into a routine to keep it simple)… and I have started testing the waters of the now infamous “back room” – the one that is supposed to be a guest room, but hasn’t been able to host a guest since the wedding (*cough* two *ahem* years ago *cough*). It is slow going (mostly, throwing my hands up in despair over the amount of stuff to go through… a lot of it mine, but requiring other things to be moved/dealt with first)… And there’s a bunch of things that I know I’m going to let go (a TON of vinyl, amazingly enough – records, not clothes – but I’m trying to stream the albums to convert them to MP3… at least the ones that I really think might be interesting to have (call me a music addict – I may not listen to it now, or for years to come, but if it will only take a few grains of sand, then what the hell, why not?)
Prospects – are interesting… I have several things on the burner (book wise, which contributes to inspiration, which will hopefully lead to writing and story ideas)… but also other things on the burner in other areas (some already mentioned)… and I’ll just leave them at that, for now…
Finally, Potter… Yes, I have finished the final book. Here’s my spoiler, if you are reading this without having finished the book – people live, people die, and there are several interesting plot twists and resolutions to and recycling of story elements that started way back in the series. In all, it was a very good book (however, when it comes time for the movie script to be done, I feel sorry for the poor soul having to write the script – too much in the book that just HAS to be addressed or screams to be shot [filmed] to be left out – that it will be a long movie…)
