Surprise, surprise, I’m actually writing an update on the correct day! Wish I had something more exciting to post.
I had a few blessed hours to myself yesterday and I added 862 new words to my Death by Chocolate story. Uh, I think. I also erased whole paragraphs because I decided my main character, Aurelia, needed to be more conflicted about coming home. It’s a time travel story and if she doesn’t miss anything about the other dimension, there’s no real tension in the choice she has to make at the end. So, I’m pleased with where it’s at now.
Currently, I’m on the precipice of the “meet cute” scene and although I want the love interest to be awesome and suave and funny, I think I have to make him a douche. Maybe a douche that’s still really hot? lol Again, there needs to be more conflict.
On the home front, my husband is sick and my kids are still trying to adjust to the time change. This leads to everyone at my house sleeping at weird hours in several places besides their beds. The hubs is favoring the couch, my daughter the floor, and my son and I spend a lot of time in the recliner with our heads hanging over the side. Super comfy.
I’m excited to go on a mom date with Sarah tonight to see In Time. For once we’re going to see a movie because it looks good instead of because of all the hot boys that are in it. Although, there are plenty to ogle in In Time – just not our faves.
I know you’re shocked that I’m seeing a movie tonight and not waiting until tomorrow to check out Breaking Dawn Part 1. I kind of am too, but we’ve decided to check that mutha out next Sunday. I seriously can’t wait to see the honeymoon scene. I powered through the books to get to that part because I’d been promised some sex and then, well, we all know how underwhelming that was. I’m sure I’ll do something dorky like clap and embarrass the hell out of Sarah. I like to think it’s payback for having to see Valentine’s Day just because Abs McLautner was in it. 🙂
Okay, time to go douchify a character. Have a super swell Wednesday.
