So, things at the pay job are slow again. I work as a subcontractor, so I only work when they have it. This is both good and bad.
It works for me because it frees up writing days. Bad thing is, I’m a creature of habit and I work better on a decent writing schedule. I’m one of those writers who likes to go in at a certain time each day and slip into a natural rhythm. I can still work when I only have snatches of time and I do. A writer writes. Plain and simple.
But I like it better the other way.
I had today off. Wrote 2000 words. Since I spent the entire day in this office, that turnout isn’t so great, but I did have a period of struggle with one of the characters. He wants a voice. He’s pretty damned hard headed, too.Plus, I’ve been struggling with some personal issues of my own. So, that’s not so bad a word count. 😉
So after reaching the 2000 words, I took a break and downloaded a few episodes of Torchwood off Itunes. And… then I downloaded a few more. LOL! Some of it is great, some kind of cheesy. I really disliked one episode with a Borg type chick. But I’m enjoying it for the most part, so I went ahead and just bought the entire first season. Then I saw season 2 is on there as well. I’ve heard it’s better than the first. But I may wait on that one because I hit a confusing point.
I uh, had it going on one computer, so I started writing again on the laptop and think I missed something. All of the sudden two characters are having an affair when I never even saw the first kiss they talked about.
And to think I actually went onto Itunes to get Farscape episodes. The DVD price on Amazon is simply ridiculous when you can get every episode off Itunes for 39 bucks.
I think maybe it was better when I didn’t know I could get TV shows on Itunes for less than 2 bucks a pop. Sheesh.
