What a week!
Work has been manic this week so I didn’t manage to get my Whittaker fiction entry written. I’d started something but didn’t want to get another hideous score by not having time to edit properly. I’ll get a 0 but that’s ok.
I had already written and submitted the poem so fingers crossed for that one.
Need to consider if I’m going to submit my Dorrie’s poem for publication. Not had any feedback on it though. Ah well, you’ve got to be brave sometime.
Not done anymore on the script but will try and do some more later.
May til August I’m dropping one day at work so hoping that I will achieve lots more with my writing.
Well the round 2 Whittaker results are out and my poem did OK. Same marks as last time at least and midway on the scoreboard. Just got judge’s comment and they are pretty spot on, will have to reconsider the end.
Fiction not so good, barely scraped half marks and I’m right at the bottom of the scoreboard. I will suck it up and post it for comment, after I get the judges comments, who knows maybe it just needed to be longer!!!
But, I enjoyed writing both and I think my head is just not up to intricate story plotting at the moment.
No more pages on my Script, have a nasty chest infection so not felt up to much. I did do a bit of sorting through receipts and journals today so feel more cleansed. Will try and tackle some more of my script and my round 3 story over the weekend, just wonder if I’ll go higher or lower next round.
Sidetracked from writing to the screen last week; I finally saw New Moon. Now I felt this when Reading the books but after the somewhat dismal Twilight adaptation (Cam Giganet was very good though) New Moon was pretty good and I now commit myself fully to Team Jacob. Even though in most other avenues I like vampires, this time I say pick the werewolf. Of course, having read the books I know what happens, and I won’t approve plot spoiling comments.
I do think a certain Mr. Taylor Lautner might be swaying my decision. And though I like Mr. Pattinson, I prefer him as Cedric. As Edward he is too pained for my liking. Give me brooding over moping any day.
Should have some more Twilight merchandise arrive from Amazon today and I’ve pre-ordered the spin-off book.
And Stephanie Meyer, if you read this, which I’m sure you won’t, even though your Edward version was leaked online I’d still buy a hard copy. But, pretty please can we have a Jacob version or Jacob sequel. Thanks.
