Sum Sunday, September 8, 2013


  • We watched Science of Dogs, a National Geographic video.  They kept talking about eugenics and breeding the perfect dog for this or that. My thought: “wW’re freaking Hitler.”  The documentary was interesting, and there were some fun parts (puppies!!), but I just kept feeling really sad about the whole thing.

Writing Progress:

  • Still working on some worldbuilding and research into genetics.  I’ve changed one of my ideas already, so I’m “recasting” most of my characters, looks-wise.  I’m still at a loss as to what my main male character looks like.  I’ve been doing a lot of trolling (trawling?) through Pinterest to see if a particular face sparks my interest.  Nothing too pretty, and he’s kind of a bodyguard type, so he can’t be too skinny.  So far, no hits…
  • This past week I was really putting off the “writing” part of writing the book.   I know, I know.  Here’s the thing – I’m going on vacation for 11 days in a couple of weeks.  I don’t want to start, get in a groove, then have the vacation wreck it all.  I just want to come back and *W*R*I*T*E*.  Like, bam, book done in a month.  But I can’t do that.  It’s ready.  I’m ready.  So this is it, starting today, I’m officially in the writing phase.  I spent today going over the first few scenes, which I had already written, tweeking a couple of things, nothing too in depth.  But tomorrow…oh, boy, tomorrow will be fun!

What’s Making Me Happy This Week:

  • Our trip to Barcelona is booked!  We decided to rent an apartment rather than stay at a hotel, so I’m really excited about that.  We’ll be there for 10 nights!  Plus, we’re going during La Merce Festival – a Fire Run, Human Towers, Fireworks, Parades, and a light show at La Sagrada Familia!  My camera is going to BLOW UP.  Check out the videos below!
