Blahdi blah blah

Despite a nice dinner (Fresh & Easy cheese pizza doctored up with sausage, bacon, onions, and olives) and a glass (or two) of good wine, I am feeling strangely despondent. Phoo.

(I won't say that it's because one of my silly little dragons died for lack of views. I won't.)

Facebook kept crashing Firefox when I tried to upload photos. I managed to get two up, but any time I try to open the "upload photos" thing it locks up.

Tomorrow I'm going to make a Mexican white cheese sauce (fundido) and have it with chimichangas for dinner. I will try not to bake anything else, because I've been more or less good this week and besides, there's still leftover chocolate cake.

17. Favorite protagonist and why!

Matt. In many ways, Matt is the most “me” of any character – just inside; of course I’m not a staggeringly handsome 6'2" recovering alcoholic ex-boxer, but Matt thinks like me and has a lot of my character flaws and problems. Matt is complex and very real and very human and I adore him.

18. Favorite antagonist and why!

Not sure. John Dillon, perhaps, as a very fully-fleshed villain, but also love the more short-lived Tomas, and Marcus, whom no one has met yet...

19. Favorite minor that decided to shove himself into the spotlight and why!

Danny Sullivan, the newest star of the 2009 NaNo. It was supposed to be Matthew’s story (Matt and Cody’s oldest son), but Danny took the spotlight.

20. What are your favorite character interactions to write?

Matt and Cody. Their relationship is the best in my head, although I do enjoy the friction of Sean Patrick and Della.

Speaking of leftover cake, do I want to eat some, or not?

Do you even need to ask? YESYESYES to leftover cake, ALWAYS!

(gotta remember to stand over your left shoulder when I speak...)

Reading about your food is so wonderful. Wish I could be there tomorrow.

If the cheese sauce comes out well, I'll make it again when the whole gang can be here! :-)

Meow to poor wet (but clean!) kitty!

Danny Sullivan, newcomer to Matthew's school -- when I first conceived the story, he was just one of the kids, and Matthew was the main voice, but Danny took over. I finished it for NaNo purposes but I haven't done any re-reading or editing yet (and it needs it). Danny is, at this point, a sixteen-year-old magic Sensitive who sees Matthew and knows he's a mage, but doesn't know what to do with the information. Between making discoveries in the mountain caves and getting close to the first magickal family he's ever met, Danny starts to find himself. (Coming of age YA story.) I'm not really content with the rushed ending and it needs a lot of work, but I like the way it came out, and I like Danny.

Maybe I'll try again later.

sounds interesting. I remember you mentioning wanting to do this sort of story for nano.

ugh rushed endings, they're my bogeyman. I always feel like mine are rushed
Apr. 10th, 2010 04:57 am (UTC)
Yep, I started it all fresh for Nano and scrapped the little bit I'd started from Matthew's POV. Danny gave me the chance to see the O'Connor family from the outside.

that's cool. love it when characters surprise you

Of course you want to eat cake. And I'm sorry about your dragon. Blame it on lj for being screwed up so no one could see it to click on it.

It's good cake (queenofattiola rarely steers me wrong!)!

Maybe that's it. I can't catch any of the new eggs and there's no more auto-refresher dragon pages. *pout*

Hugs! Hopefully the weekend will clear away the blues! (skritches to the Small Blonde One, too!)
