No, not Raines. That’s over and done with. *sighs*Have you ever sat and watched a scene and thought- “this is perfection”? Today I got ready to go to the pool with the kids (again) and then- just as we had all assembled in our bathing suits- the Atlanta summer sky opened up and it started to pour. That […]

Copying Beethoven

Posted on Jun 18, 2007 at 4:33 pm

I watched copying beethoven last night. It tried to be inspired but wasn’t. The scene where Ed Harris as Beethoven conducts the Ninth symphony made the whole movie worthwhile. Diane Kruger ran around the lovely sets looking beautiful and devoted but rather out of place. The movie introduces Beethoven at the very end of his life – he is cantekerous and frequently […]

that icon is perfect- relates to me

Posted on Jun 14, 2007 at 11:57 am

Relates to me in the sense that I keep posting and I have nothing to say.  Agent wrote back at 5 AM. I knew because my phone beeped at 5 AM (I’ve rigged my phone so that when she emails me it beeps.) So I read her email (it was very nice- basically saying that […]

It’s gotten to the point that if I don’t post in my journal I begin to feel like I don’t exist.  Is that addiction or obsession? I’m already a bit obsessive (A bit?) and the only thing I am addicted to is gum. And writing meaningless crap in this journal. really I have NOTHING to […]

I did it! Awesome ending!

Posted on Jun 12, 2007 at 11:18 am

I found the best ending for hartfield!!!! Thank you King James Bible!!! The whole “whither shall I cause my shame” thing has been eliminated- it no longer makes sense because I changed the crime. Now the ending is way creepier and also understandable. (I had three people tell me they had no idea what was […]

boring beginnings

Posted on Jun 7, 2007 at 3:27 pm

Well, the critique (of first twenty pages) is in from my cheif editor (husband). Beginning not interesting enough. More revisions tonite. I’m thinking of going just short of the dramatic Agatha Christie blood spattered knife and the agonized, outstreched arms of a mangled corpse. heh Actually more along the line of a Victorian drama- vial […]

I just went Jet ski-ing on Thursday. My husband’s resident class went on their annual retreat at a lake-house on Lake Lanier. It was amazing!!  I just crossed another thing off my “Must do before I die” list.  Water ski-ing is next.  Maybe sky-diving one day but I have to do everything else on that […]
