Still on track with my Script Frenzy word counts at 4069 (the goal for today was 4002).Â So I’m nearly a quarter of the way through!Â Yay!Â The hardest part so far was writing the “meet cute,” the part of the story where the two main characters meet.Â I started writing knowing literally nothing more about the main guy than he was a single dad.Â Â And by the time I got to the end of my word count for the day, my “hero” had a name, an occupation, and a definite… attitude.Â 🙂
Me and romance (at least, typical romantic comedy, Meg Ryan/Julia Roberts movie romance) have not really been on speaking terms for a while now, so I was honestly not certain until I started writing that scene whether I was writing a melodrama/mystery or a romantic comedy.Â It may yet take a mysterious, melodramatic turn.Â But I got through the meet cute passably well, with two characters you more or less like, who you can more or less tell are going to end up liking each other.
At work, I have to finish about 50 or more pages of content for one particular site by Friday. Â That’s in addition to three press releases, one page of optimized content, revised content for a twenty-page site, draft content for two or three other sites, and various and sundry other pieces of writing that are due by the end of the month. Â So I’m a little dry when it comes time to blog.Â Not to mention that life has been blissfully free of excess drama for the last couple of weeks.
I am really looking forward to going to Women of Faith next week, so I think I’ll probably have lots to say after that.Â The entire group of Hob Knobbers will be traveling together.Â Yay!!!!!
And I’m definitely going back to the bellydancing class on Sunday.Â I can’t quit till I figure out how to do that darn Shakira “boob rotation” properly and determine whether or not my hips do or do not, in fact, lie.
