Midweek #ROW80 update

Surprise, surprise, I’m actually writing an update on the correct day! Wish I had something more exciting to post.

I had a few blessed hours to myself yesterday and I added 862 new words to my Death by Chocolate story. Uh, I think.  I also erased whole paragraphs because I decided my main character, Aurelia, needed to be more conflicted about coming home. It’s a time travel story and if she doesn’t miss anything about the other dimension, there’s no real tension in the choice she has to make at the end. So, I’m pleased with where it’s at now.

Currently, I’m on the precipice of the “meet cute” scene and although I want the love interest to be awesome and suave and funny, I think I have to make him a douche.  Maybe a douche that’s still really hot? lol Again, there needs to be more conflict.

On the home front, my husband is sick and my kids are still trying to adjust to the time change. This leads to everyone at my house sleeping at weird hours in several places besides their beds. The hubs is favoring the couch, my daughter the floor, and my son and I spend a lot of time in the recliner with our heads hanging over the side. Super comfy.

I’m excited to go on a mom date with Sarah tonight to see In Time.  For once we’re going to see a movie because it looks good instead of because of all the hot boys that are in it.  Although, there are plenty to ogle in In Time – just not our faves.

I know you’re shocked that I’m seeing a movie tonight and not waiting until tomorrow to check out Breaking Dawn Part 1.  I kind of am too, but we’ve decided to check that mutha out next Sunday.  I seriously can’t wait to see the honeymoon scene.  I powered through the books to get to that part because I’d been promised some sex and then, well, we all know how underwhelming that was. I’m sure I’ll do something dorky like clap and embarrass the hell out of Sarah.  I like to think it’s payback for having to see Valentine’s Day just because Abs McLautner was in it. 🙂

Okay, time to go douchify a character.  Have a super swell Wednesday.

  1. Okay, after that whole post, when I got to the Abs McLautner part, I forgot everything else you wrote. I’m glad I wasn’t drinking anything or I would have spewed said drink all over my keyboard at work.

    I can see that I’m not the only one that likes to look at the hot young guys. 😉 (I’m still drooling over Luca…I really want to go back to Disney World.)

    I am totally Team Jacob, btw.

  2. I’ll let that whole Team Jacob thing slide. Edward 4-EVER!! 🙂 Actually, I just love me some RPattz. Okay, is #TheRut the name of the hashtag Andrew started, because I just tried to use it and it appears to have something to do with hunting instead. LMFAO Better edit that part out of the post.

  3. I don’t think you need to make him a douche, necessarily. You could make him uninterested or unattainable. Then again, douche is more fun to write.

    I saw In Time a while ago. The acting is good and the world-building is done well. It has a hint of fantasy involved, and once you realize that, things make more sense. I didn’t understand, for instance, if you spend time by living, and time is money, and people spend time on things they need, but time disappears, wouldn’t everyone eventually be dead? Time would run out, at some point, right? It isn’t recycled. There are no time factories.

    Anyway, little things like that are a bit annoying. Overall, it’s good.

  4. I thought that the rich people are born with more time than the others and that they can acquire more if they need it? I guess I’ll find out in a bit. 🙂

    I ended up making the guy not so much a douche and more of a shrewd businessman – but he’s still hot and charming. Ha!
