I understand Anna’s reactions to music because I’ve pulled that feeling from my own arsenal. I think she might be a strong character, an interesting one, a quietly earth-shattering one, but she really needs developed – all of them do! My greatest fear are flat characters and dismal plot. I need to work on plot, too.

Am thinking of instead of forcing my muse to show me what she’s got every day I should be spending my time reading and absorbing right now. When the engine sputters it could be time to let it rest in the driveway for a while.

Also, remember this song for posterity: Wolfmother/Vagabond

I used to do this, just keep a page up all day at work and pop in with whatever I was thinking as it came. Today Xander walked into Kindergarten with a run and a jump and a “I’m so glad we get to donate caaaaaaaaaaaaaans!” and “It’s GYYYYYYYYYYM day!” (the kid LOVES exercising/running/kicking/leaping, etc). He’s learning a martial art. After just a few lessons his instructor is moving him up several levels – she says he has focus and precision. I think so too. I also think he loves it so I can’t say no. He’s an amazing young man, he’s gentle and he’s kind. He’s bright and he’s pensive. He seems somehow lighter in heart this year.
