New November Media

If anyone's looking for a new show to watch, maybe over the holidays when things are on hiatus, I cannot recommend Raising Hope enough.  Last night I literally slapped my knee - slapped my knee! - I was laughing so hard, and when the episode was over I had a big grin on my face.  It is just too cute for words.

I may just squeak by on my new books goal, but barring a marathon I probably will just miss new TV; no chance in hell on movies, but I never get anywhere close.  Ah well - it's more about my love of lists and meta and being able to keep track of things than to actually try and meet these arbitrary goals.

NaScreeWriMo - Day Thirty-One

I have more written than this, but I'm in the middle of a scene and I don't want to put up just the first half.  I've reached a point in the story, and this always happens around Act Three, where I've put together the climax but am realizing that I haven't fully set up what I need to get there.  Sometimes I go back and edit and/or revise at this point; sometimes I just soldier on and make notes for when I do go back in revision.  In either event, I will make a note of what you would need to know for everything to make sense.

But that's why I rarely bother to do a full outline for a first draft past the midpoint - I know that I'm only really going to work it out as I write.
