Song mood: Friday, I’m in Love by The Cure.
So far, for the novella, I have the setting, the situation (not sure of the word I’m thinking here) and the method. Next, I’ll figure out the characters and the big secrets. Setting: a suburb of Seattle, lots of strange stuff happen there. Okay, it’s not as strange as I make it out to be. The situations will be a party and a storm. The method, for now a secret. The big secret will be something like a relationship gone bad. The motive: revenge.
I should finish The Sandman: Act II on Saturday. Then next up will be The October Country by Ray Bradbury.
For future videos, I will do the story of Echo and Dot. The Dark Prince has attacked their world. Echo loses his wife Ti-me. Okay, so I stole part of the story line from Finding Nemo. Dot is lost and Echo is trying to find her. One thing I’m learning from The Sandman, because it’s like a radio play, is to have characters describe what the audience can’t see. So if there is a Zombie apocalypse, I can have a character describe it and follow it up with an action.
Finally, I’m getting this thought in my mind: things have changed. Before, I would tell myself that things are going to change. To realize that things have changed and this is the new world. It’s a good thing. For a while, I felt alone and now I don’t.
I’m loving the lower temps that comes with autumn. Autumn is my favorite time of the year. And one of these times, I will make a trip to New England and write a ghost story.
One of my boots needs repair. I had these pair of Doc Martens for about a year and one of them has a tear in them. So far they are the most comfortable boots I have. If going back to London and Paris is my next big adventure, I’ll probably buy a new pair of boots. Fall in London, everyone is wearing boots. Hop on the train and go to Paris, everyone except for me is wearing sneakers.
I’m also thinking of buying a pair of Thursday boots. But they are a bit more expensive and I don’t know if they will be as comfortable as Doc Martens.
Anyway, I don’t know yet where my next big adventure will take me. What I do know is that I will have time to figure out my camera and photography set up.
Now that it’s weekend mode. Goals for the weekend: Outline a list of scenes on index cards for the mystery. Read fifty pages of The Near Witch by V.E. Schwab. Watch the 1968 version of Whistle and I will Come For You and make fun of the protagonist’s eating and mumbling scenes. What I will most likely do is watch the new James Bond movie and then watch a couple episodes of Grantchester.
