I’m not all that interested, since neither the Braves nor the White Sox are in it, but the World Series starts tonight. We have the AL Champion Detroit Tigers versus the NL Champion San Francisco Giants. Good luck to both of them. I guess that I like the Giants in this for three reasons: 1) They knocked the St. Louis Cardinals out of the running, after the Cards did the same thing to the Braves; 2) Detroit won the AL Central, knocking the White Sox out of contention; and 3) my brother and his family live in the Bay Area.
Anyway, it wasn’t as good a week as last week was. Still not a bad one.
Writing: After having gotten the one piece into shape and sending it out last Tuesday, I haven’t started putting words onto the screen for the next story. I do have it plotted out, however, so I’ll be starting that as soon as later this evening. Definitely after Jeopardy!
Reading: Read Alexandra Sokoloff’s Screenwriting Tricks For Authors (and Screenwriters!) because Gene Lempp made it sound so good. And it was. Then got started with Crossed, Ally Condie’s second book of the Matched Trilogy, mostly because I couldn’t seem to find Sheldon Siegel’s book amid all of the romance that Mary has been loading onto my Kindle since the battery in hers lasts about four hours. The lithium-ion batteries are great, but they’re very easy to burn out.
Twitter: Twitter is my new best friend, social media-wise. I’ve learned that using hash tags makes it easy to read the conversations that I want, while avoiding the things that I don’t (e.g. politics). I catch up on things when I’m riding around with Mary and when I’m sitting in the car while she’s shopping. More fun than barking at other people.
ROW80 Support: I have made a point of visiting fellow ROWers and leaving comments for them, mostly for the blogs that I follow on WordPress. I have subscribed by email to those non-Wordpress blogs that offer it, so my emailbox has been quite full lately.
Hope everyone else has been having a good week. Until next time, straight ahead.
